  1. Resistance Mechanisms Influencing Oncolytic Virotherapy, a Systematic Analysis

    VACCINES, v.9, n.10, article ID 1166, 14p, 2021

    Resistance to therapy is a frequently observed phenomenon in the treatment of cancer, and as with other cancer therapeutics, therapies based on oncolytic viruses also face the challenges of resistance, such as humoral and cellular antiviral responses, and tumor-associated interferon-mediated resi...

  2. Effects of intrauterine exposure to concentrated ambient particles on allergic sensitization in juvenile mice

    TOXICOLOGY, v.463, article ID 152970, 9p, 2021

    Intrauterine exposure to particulate matter (PM) has been associated with an increased risk of asthma development, which may differ by the age of asthma onset, sex, and pollutant concentration. To investigate the pulmonary effects of in utero exposure to concentrated urban ambient particles (CAPs...

  3. Impact of radiation on tooth loss in patients with head and neck cancer: a retrospective dosimetric-based study


    Objective. To characterize the dental adverse events after head and neck radiation therapy (HNRT) and to investigate the impact of regional radiation dose upon tooth loss outcomes. Study Design. A retrospective dosimetric-based analysis was conducted to assess dental events affecting post-HNRT ex...

  4. Behavioral factors associated with multiple-type HPV genital infections: data from a cross-sectional study in young women in Brazil

    REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH, v.18, n.1, article ID 201, 9p, 2021

    Objectives To investigate the pattern of multiple human papillomavirus (HPV) infections and associated factors in young women who access the Brazilian public health care system to better understand the characteristics of multiple HPV infections, a critical issue in this era of multivalent vaccine...

  5. An Updated Systematic Review of Human Papillomavirus Genotype Distribution by Cervical Disease Grade in Women Living With Human Immunodeficiency Virus Highlights Limited Findings From Latin America

    SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASES, v.48, n.12, p.E248-E254, 2021

    Cervical cancer is 5 times more likely among women living with human immunodeficiency virus (WHIV), likely due to higher prevalence of human papillomavirus (HPV). Despite evidence of higher rates with multiple HPV genotypes in WHIV, there are no recommendations for triage by HPV genotyping specif...

  6. Factors Associated With Persistence and Clearance of High-Risk Oral Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Among Participants in the HPV Infection in Men (HIM) Study

    CLINICAL INFECTIOUS DISEASES, v.73, n.9, p.E3227-E3234, 2021

    Background. Human papillomavirus (HPV)-attributable oropharyngeal cancer (HPV-OPC) incidence is increasing in many high-income countries among men. Factors associated with oral HPV persistence, the precursor of HPV-OPC, are unknown. Data from the HPV Infection in Men (HIM) Study, which followed p...

  7. Effects of Aerobic Exercise Training on MyomiRs Expression in Cachectic and Non-Cachectic Cancer Mice

    CANCERS, v.13, n.22, article ID 5728, 19p, 2021

    Simple SummaryMuscle wasting is a symptom of the cancer cachexia closely related to the imbalance between protein synthesis and degradation. MyomiRs are small RNA molecules that do not encode proteins and have the function of regulating protein-coding genes, and in this way, myomiRs can regulate ...

  8. Pressurized Intraperitoneal Aerosol Chemotherapy (PIPAC): The First Reported Case in Brazil Using Standardized Technique with the Capnopen (R) Nebulizer Device

    AMERICAN JOURNAL OF CASE REPORTS, v.22, article ID e933906, 7p, 2021

    Objective: setting Background: Peritoneal metastasis is a common progression of abdominal-pelvic cancers, and it is associated with poorer oncological prognosis when compared to other metastasis sites. Its treatment has limited results, mainly because of poor bioavailability of chemotherapy withi...

  9. Long-term stability of the cortical volumetric profile and the functional human connectome throughout childhood and adolescence

    EUROPEAN JOURNAL OF NEUROSCIENCE, v.54, n.6, p.6187-6201, 2021

    There is compelling evidence showing that between-subject variability in several functional and structural brain features is sufficient for unique identification in adults. However, individuation of brain functional connectomes depends on the stabilization of neurodevelopmental processes during c...
