    • Cellular Renewal and Improvement of Local Cell Effector Activity in Peritoneal Cavity in Response to Infectious Stimuli 

      Cassado, Alexandra dos Anjos [UNIFESP]; Tavares de Albuquerque, Jose Antonio; Sardinha, Luiz Roberto; Buzzo, Carina de Lima [UNIFESP]; Faustino, Lucas; Nascimento, Rogerio; Ghosn, Eliver Eid Bou; D'Imperio Lima, Maria Regina; Mosig Alvarez, Jose Maria; Bortoluci, Karina Ramalho [UNIFESP] (Public Library Science, 2011-07-22)
      The peritoneal cavity (PerC) is a singular compartment where many cell populations reside and interact. Despite the widely adopted experimental approach of intraperitoneal (i.p.) inoculation, little is known about the ...
    • Hematological parameters and phagocytic activity in fat snook (Centropomus parallelus) bred in captivity 

      Santos, Antenor Aguiar; Ranzani-Paiva, Maria Jose T.; Veiga, Marcelo Leite da; Faustino, Lucas; Egami, Mizue Imoto [UNIFESP] (Elsevier B.V., 2012-10-01)
      The objective of this work was to determine the hematological parameters and the phagocytic capacity of peritoneal macrophages of fat snook related to sex, stage of gonadal maturation and seasonal cycle. Blood was collected ...
    • Regulatory T Cells Accumulate in the Lung Allergic Inflammation and Efficiently Suppress T-Cell Proliferation but Not Th2 Cytokine Production 

      Faustino, Lucas; Mucida, Daniel; Keller, Alexandre Castro [UNIFESP]; Demengeot, Jocelyne; Bortoluci, Karina [UNIFESP]; Sardinha, Luiz Roberto; Takenaka, Maisa Carla [UNIFESP]; Basso, Alexandre Salgado [UNIFESP]; Caetano Faria, Ana Maria; Russo, Momtchilo (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2012-01-01)
      Foxp3(+)CD25(+)CD4(+) regulatory T cells are vital for peripheral tolerance and control of tissue inflammation. in this study, we characterized the phenotype and monitored the migration and activity of regulatory T cells ...
    • Regulatory T Cells Migrate to Airways via CCR4 and Attenuate the Severity of Airway Allergic Inflammation 

      Faustino, Lucas; Fonseca, Denise Morais da; Takenaka, Maisa Carla Silveira [UNIFESP]; Mirotti, Luciana; Florsheim, Esther Borges; Guereschi, Marcia Grando [UNIFESP]; Silva, Joao Santana; Basso, Alexandre Salgado [UNIFESP]; Russo, Momtchilo (Amer Assoc Immunologists, 2013-03-15)
      We have previously shown that regulatory T (Treg) cells that accumulate in the airways of allergic mice upregulate CC-chemokine receptor 4 (CCR4) expression. These Treg cells suppressed in vitro Th2 cell proliferation but ...
