  1. Clinical and Eco-Epidemiological Aspects of a Novel Hyperendemic Area of Paracoccidioidomycosis in the Tocantins-Araguaia Basin (Northern Brazil), Caused by Paracoccidioides sp.

    JOURNAL OF FUNGI, v.8, n.5, article ID 502, 11p, 2022

    Paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM) is the most prevalent systemic mycosis in Brazil. The disease is caused by dimorphic fungi nested within the Paracoccidioides genus. We described 106 PCM cases (47.1 cases/year) at the Tropical Diseases Public Hospital of Tocantins State. PCM was prevalent in males an...

  2. Dissecting and Reconstructing Matrix in Malignant Mesothelioma Through Histocell-Histochemistry Gradients for Clinical Applications

    FRONTIERS IN MEDICINE, v.9, article ID 871202, 14p, 2022

    BackgroundMalignant pleural mesotheliomas (MM) are known for their heterogenous histology and clinical behavior. MM histology reveals three major tumor cell populations: epithelioid, sarcomatoid, and biphasic. Using a dissecting approach, we showed that histochemical gradients help us better unde...

  3. Sterilized human skin graft with a dose of 25 kGy provides a privileged immune and collagen microenvironment in the adhesion of Nude mice wounds

    PLOS ONE, v.17, n.1, article ID e0262532, 15p, 2022

    This study aimed to report the effects of different doses of ionizing radiation on inflammatory and repair stage of human skin graft adherence in Nude mice wounds. Animals were divided into transplanted with irradiated human skin grafts (IHSG) at 25 and 50 kGy (IHSG 25 kGy; IHSG 50 kGy) and non-I...

  4. Validation of physician certified verbal autopsy using conventional autopsy: a large study of adult non-external causes of death in a metropolitan area in Brazil

    BMC PUBLIC HEALTH, v.22, n.1, article ID 748, 11p, 2022

    Background Reliable mortality data are essential for the development of public health policies. In Brazil, although there is a well-consolidated universal system for mortality data, the quality of information on causes of death (CoD) is not even among Brazilian regions, with a high proportion of ...

  5. Safe in the womb? Effects of air pollution to the unborn child and neonates

    JORNAL DE PEDIATRIA, v.98, suppl.1, p.S27-S31, 2022

    Objective: In this brief review, the authors focus on the effects of gestational exposures to urban air pollution on fetal development and neonatal outcomes. Source of data: In this review the authors used PubMed, Web of Science and SciELO research platforms, analyzing papers from the last 30 yea...

  6. Dynamics of natural infection by Toxoplasma gondii in goat herds in the semiarid region of northeastern Brazil: transitional antibody observation

    VETERINARY RESEARCH COMMUNICATIONS, v.46, n.2, p.507-515, 2022

    This study aimed to describe the transmission of T. gondii in naturally infected goats in the semiarid region of northeastern Brazil, through evaluating the serological status of these animals from one to 12 months of age. Seven goat farms were selected. During the first visit, an epidemiological...

  7. Diagnostic and prognostic implications of tumor expression of the GATA-3 gene in nodal peripheral T-cell lymphoma (nPTCL): Retrospective data from a Latin American cohort

    LEUKEMIA RESEARCH, v.114, article ID 106794, 9p, 2022

    Background: Nodal peripheral T-cell lymphomas (nPTCL) encompass a heterogeneous group of mature and aggressive lymphoid malignancies, including peripheral T-cell lymphoma, not otherwise specified (PTCL, NOS), angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL) and anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) ALK-...

  8. Near-Complete Remission of Glioblastoma in a Patient Treated with an Allogenic Dendritic Cell-Based Vaccine: The Role of Tumor-Specific CD4+T-Cell Cytokine Secretion Pattern in Predicting Response and Recurrence

    INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF MOLECULAR SCIENCES, v.23, n.10, article ID 5396, 10p, 2022

    Immunotherapy has brought hope to the fight against glioblastoma, but its efficacy remains unclear. We present the case of CST, a 25-year-old female patient with a large right-hemisphere glioblastoma treated with a dendritic-tumor cell fusion vaccine. CST showed a near-complete tumor response, wi...
