    • Abnormal nocturnal blood pressure fall in normotensive adolescents with insulin-dependent diabetes is ameliorated following glycemic improvement 

      Ferreira, Sandra Roberta Gouvea [UNIFESP]; Cesarini, Paulo Roberto [UNIFESP]; Vivolo, Mariana Aun; Zanella, Maria Teresa [UNIFESP] (Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica, 1998-04-01)
      Lack of the physiological nocturnal fall in blood pressure (BP) has been found in diabetics and it seems to be related to the presence of diabetic complications. The present study examined the changes in the nocturnal BP ...
    • Detection of the basement membrane-degrading proteolytic activity of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis after SDS-PAGE using agarose overlays containing Abz-MKALTLQ-EDDnp 

      Puccia, Rosana [UNIFESP]; Juliano, Maria Aparecida [UNIFESP]; Juliano, Luiz [UNIFESP]; Travassos, Luiz Rodolpho [UNIFESP]; Carmona, Adriana Karaoglanovic [UNIFESP] (Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica, 1999-05-01)
      We have characterized, in the Paracoccidioides brasiliensis yeast phase, an exocellular SH-dependent serine proteinase activity against Abz-MKRLTL-EDDnp and analogous fluorescent-quenched peptides, and showed that it is ...
    • Effects of acupuncture on behavioral, cardiovascular and hormonal responses in restraint-stressed Wistar rats 

      Guimarães, C.m.; Pinge, M.c.m.; Yamamura, Ysao [UNIFESP]; Mello, Luiz Eugenio Araujo de Moraes [UNIFESP] (Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica, 1997-12-01)
      Stress is a well-known entity and may be defined as a threat to the homeostasis of a being. In the present study, we evaluated the effects of acupuncture on the physiological responses induced by restraint stress. Acupuncture ...
    • Fractures of the proximal femur: correlation with vitamin D receptor gene polymorphism 

      Ramalho, Ana Claudia [UNIFESP]; Lazaretti-Castro, Marise [UNIFESP]; Hauache, Omar Magid [UNIFESP]; Kasamatsu, Teresa Sayoko [UNIFESP]; Brandão, C.; Reis, André Fernandes [UNIFESP]; Takata, Edmilson Takehiro [UNIFESP]; Cafalli, Francisco [UNIFESP]; Tavares, F.; Gimeno, Suely Godoy Agostinho [UNIFESP]; Vieira, J.g.h. (Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica, 1998-07-01)
      Fractures are the feared consequences of osteoporosis and fractures of the proximal femur (FPF) are those that involve the highest morbidity and mortality. Thus far, evaluation of bone mineral density (BMD) is the best way ...
    • Idiopathic focal segmental glomerulosclerosis and HLA antigens 

      Gerbase-Lima, Maria [UNIFESP]; Pereira-Santos, A. [UNIFESP]; Sesso, Ricardo de Castro Cintra [UNIFESP]; Temin, Julia; Aragão, E.s.; Ajzen, Horacio [UNIFESP] (Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica, 1998-03-01)
      The objective of the present study was to investigate a possible association between HLA class II antigens and idiopathic focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS). HLA-A, -B, -DR and -DQ antigens were determined in 19 ...
    • Pituitary glycoprotein hormone a-subunit secretion by cirrhotic patients 

      Oliveira, M.c.; Pizarro, C.b.; Cassal, A.; Cremonese, R.; Vieira, J.g.h. [UNIFESP] (Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica, 1999-01-01)
      Secretion of the a-subunit of pituitary glycoprotein hormones usually follows the secretion of intact gonadotropins and is increased in gonadal failure and decreased in isolated gonadotropin deficiency. The aim of the ...
    • Reduced bone mineral density in men after heart transplantation 

      Anijar, José Ricardo; Szejnfeld, Vera Lucia [UNIFESP]; Almeida, Dirceu Rodrigues de [UNIFESP]; Fernandes, Artur da Rocha Correa [UNIFESP]; Ferraz, Marcos Bosi [UNIFESP] (Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica, 1999-04-01)
      Heart transplantation is associated with rapid bone loss and an increased prevalence and incidence of fractures. The aim of the present study was to compare the bone mineral density (BMD) of 30 heart transplant (HT) ...
    • Renal dysfunction in patients with sickle cell anemia or sickle cell trait 

      Sesso, Ricardo de Castro Cintra [UNIFESP]; Almeida, M.a.; Figueiredo, Maria Stella [UNIFESP]; Bordin, Jose Orlando [UNIFESP] (Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica, 1998-10-01)
      Patients with sickle cell anemia (Hb SS) or sickle cell trait (Hb AS) may present several types of renal dysfunction; however, comparison of the prevalence of these abnormalities between these two groups and correlation ...
