PURPOSE To analyze the action of gangliosides in peripheral nerve regeneration in the sciatic nerve of the rat. METHODS The sample was composed of 96 male Wistar rats. The animals were anaesthetized and, after identification of the anaesthesic plane, an incision was made in the posterior region of the thigh, followed by skin and muscle divulsion. The(More)
Society has been increasingly exposed to low-frequency electromagnetic fields (EMF), mainly from electricity distribution networks and electro-electronic devices. Aiming to clarify the extension of possible interactions between EMF and testicular development, this study evaluated the effects of exposure to 60 Hz and 1 mT EMF in the maturation of testicular(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this experimental study was to evaluate through a clinical and histopathological analysis the tissue reactivity caused by two monofilament sutures nylon and poliglecaprone 25 on the internal and external sutures in rats. METHODS For this study, we used forty male Rattus novergicus (Wistar rats). The experimental procedures were(More)
The cytotoxicity of a series of aminonaphthoquinones resulting from the reaction of suitable aminoacids with 1,4-naphthoquinone was assayed against SF-295 (glioblastoma), MDAMB-435 (breast), HCT-8 (colon), HCT-116 (colon), HL-60 (leukemia), OVCAR-8 (ovarian), NCI-H358M (bronchoalveolar lung carcinoma) and PC3-M (prostate) cancer cells and also against PBMC(More)
The main goal of this study is to evaluate potential applications of two zirconia-hydroxyapatite composites, Z4H6 and Z6H4, as bone substitutes. Composite plugs were implanted into the distal femoral metaphysis and also onto the longissimus dorsi of 18 adult mixed-breed dogs in order to assess in vivo biocompatibility by immediate clinical and radiographic(More)
PURPOSE The pathophysiology of abnormalities associated with myenteric plexus lesions remains imperfectly understood. Such abnormalities have been correlated with subocclusive intestinal conditions in children with Hirschsprung's disease, cases of chronic constipation and, postoperatively, in cases of anorectal anomalies. This study evaluated abnormalities(More)
The phenomenon of teratozoospermia in felids is not fully understood. In this study, we investigated the testicular androgen:estrogen balance in domestic cats and correlated these data with epididymal sperm morphology and the degree of spermatogenic activity. During spring and summer, testes and blood samples were obtained from 37 mixed-breed domestic cats(More)
