Characteristics and Outcomes of Heart Transplant Recipients With Coronavirus-19 Disease in a High-volume Transplant Center
TRANSPLANTATION, v.106, n.3, p.641-647, 2022
Background. Heart transplant (HT) recipients may be at higher risk of acquiring SARS-CoV-2 infection and developing critical illness. The aim of this study is to describe characteristics and outcomes of HT recipients infected by SARS-COV-2, from a high-volume transplant center. Methods. We have d...
A Brazilian Inter-Hospital Candidemia Outbreak Caused by Fluconazole-Resistant Candida parapsilosis in the COVID-19 Era
JOURNAL OF FUNGI, v.8, n.2, article ID 100, 8p, 2022
Horizontal transmission of fluconazole-resistant Candida parapsilosis (FRCP) through healthcare workers' hands has contributed to the occurrence of candidemia outbreaks worldwide.

The Torque Teno Virus Titer in Saliva Reflects the Level of Circulating CD4(+) T Lymphocytes and HIV in Individuals Undergoing Antiretroviral Maintenance Therapy
FRONTIERS IN MEDICINE, v.8, article ID 809312, 6p, 2022
IntroductionTorque teno virus (TTV) is a non-pathogenic virus present in body fluids. Its titer in the circulation increases in association with immune suppression, such as in HIV-infected individuals. We evaluated if the TTV titer in saliva from HIV-positive individuals undergoing antiretroviral...
Propensity Score and Desirability of Outcome Ranking Analysis of Ertapenem for Treatment of Nonsevere Bacteremic Urinary Tract Infections Due to Extended-Spectrum-Beta-Lactamase-Producing Enterobacterales in Kidney Transplant Recipients
ANTIMICROBIAL AGENTS AND CHEMOTHERAPY, v.65, n.11, article ID e01102-21, 13p, 2021
There are scarce data on the efficacy of ertapenem in the treatment of bacteremia due to extended-spectrum-beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Enterobacterales (ESBL-E) in kidney transplant (KT) recipients. We evaluated the association between treatment with ertapenem or meropenem and clinical cure i...
Hydroxychloroquine plus azithromycin early treatment of mild COVID-19 in an outpatient setting: a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled clinical trial evaluating viral clearance
INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF ANTIMICROBIAL AGENTS, v.58, n.5, article ID 106428, 7p, 2021
Background: Hydroxychloroquine has shown potential to block viral replication of SARS-CoV-2 in some in vitro studies. This randomised, double-blinded, placebo controlled clinical trial evaluated the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine plus azithromycin (HCQ/AZT) in reducing viral loads in patients wit...

Ga-68-Prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) positron emission tomography (pet) in prostate cancer: a systematic review and meta-analysis
INTERNATIONAL BRAZ J UROL, v.47, n.4, p.705-729, 2021
Introduction: Prostate cancer (PC) is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in males. Ga-68-PSMA PET/CT, a non-invasive diagnostic tool to evaluate PC with prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) expression, has emerged as a more accurate alternative to assess disease staging. We aimed to i...
