E-cig might cause cell damage of oral mucosa
ORAL SURGERY ORAL MEDICINE ORAL PATHOLOGY ORAL RADIOLOGY, v.131, n.4, p.435-443, 2021
Objective. The aim of this study was to investigate cytogenetic and cytotoxic damage through the evaluation of micronuclei (MN) and metanuclear anomalies in the oral mucosa of electronic cigarette (e-cig) users. Study Design. The patients were recruited into 4 groups: e-cig users, smokers, former...
Early chronotype with advanced activity rhythms and dim light melatonin onset in a rural population
JOURNAL OF PINEAL RESEARCH, v.69, n.3, article ID e12675, 12p, 2020
Studying communities at different stages of urbanisation and industrialisation can teach us how timing and intensity of light affect the circadian clock under real-life conditions. We have previously described a strong tendency towards morningness in the Baependi Heart Study, located in a small r...
Long-term ticagrelor for secondary prevention in patients with prior myocardial infarction and no history of coronary stenting: insights from PEGASUS-TIMI 54
EUROPEAN HEART JOURNAL, v.41, n.17, p.1625-+, 2020
Aims PEGASUS-TIMI 54 demonstrated that long-term dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) with aspirin and ticagrelor reduced the risk of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE), with an acceptable increase in bleeding, in patients with prior myocardial infarction (MI). While much of the discussion ar...
Caffeinated Beverage Intake, Dyspnea With Ticagrelor, and Cardiovascular Outcomes: Insights From the PEGASUS-TIMI 54 Trial
JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION, v.9, n.10, article ID e015785, 25p, 2020
BACKGROUND: A proposed cause of dyspnea induced by ticagrelor is an increase in adenosine blood levels. Because caffeine is an adenosine antagonist, it can potentially improve drug tolerability with regard to dyspnea. Furthermore, association between caffeine and cardiovascular events is of clini...
Inflammatory and functional responses after (bio)diesel exhaust exposure in allergic sensitized mice. A comparison between diesel and biodiesel
ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION, v.253, p.667-679, 2019
Many cities fail to meet air quality standards, which results in increased risk for pulmonary disorders, including asthma. Human and experimental studies have shown that diesel exhaust (DE) particles are associated with worsening of allergic asthma. Biodiesel (BD), a cleaner fuel from renewable s...
Occupational exposure to mercury in recycling cooperatives from the metropolitan region of Sao Paulo, Brazil
CIENCIA & SAUDE COLETIVA, v.24, n.4, p.1517-1526, 2019
The occupational exposure to mercury (Hg) was assessed in four cooperatives of recyclable materials by air sampling in nine areas (recyclable materials pile, scale, baling press machine, e-waste room, cafeteria, office, forklift, conveyor belt, and outside patio). Of the 83 samples, only 14.5% sh...
Reduction in Subtypes and Sizes of Myocardial Infarction With Ticagrelor in PEGASUS-TIMI 54
JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION, v.7, n.22, article ID e009260, 13p, 2018
Background-Ticagrelor reduced cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction (MI), or stroke in patients with prior MI in PEGASUS-TIMI 54 (Prevention of Cardiovascular Events [eg, Death From Heart or Vascular Disease, Heart Attack, or Stroke] in Patients With Prior Heart Attack Using Ticagrelor Comp...
Disentangling vehicular emission impact on urban air pollution using ethanol as a tracer
SCIENTIFIC REPORTS, v.8, article ID 10679, 10p, 2018
The Sao Paulo Metropolitan Area is a unique case worldwide due to the extensive use of biofuel, particularly ethanol, by its large fleet of nearly 8 million cars. Based on source apportionment analysis of Organic Aerosols in downtown Sao Paulo, and using ethanol as tracer of passenger vehicles, w...
Assessment and Valuation of Public Health Impacts from Gradual Biodiesel Implementation in the Transport Energy Matrix in Brazil
AEROSOL AND AIR QUALITY RESEARCH, v.18, n.9, p.2375-2382, 2018
Carbon dioxide from fossil fuels and industrial processes accounted for approximately 78% of the total increase in greenhouse gas emissions from 1970-2010. The economic advantages of reducing fossil fuel combustion and improving air quality, including a reduction in chronic diseases and their ass...
Acute exposure to diesel and sewage biodiesel exhaust causes pulmonary and systemic inflammation in mice
SCIENCE OF THE TOTAL ENVIRONMENT, v.628-629, p.1223-1233, 2018
Biodiesel is a renewable energy source that reduces particle emission, but few studies have assessed its effects. To assess the effects of acute inhalation of two doses (600 and 1200 mu g/m(3)) of diesel (DE) and biodiesel (BD) fuels on the inflammatory pulmonary and systemic profile of mice. Ani...
