    • Chronic renal failure induces genetic instability in multiple organs of Wistar rats 

      Ribeiro, Daniel Araki [UNIFESP]; Campos, Ruy Ribeiro [UNIFESP]; Bergamaschi, Cassia Toledo [UNIFESP] (Wiley-Blackwell, 2009-04-01)
      Taking into consideration the strong evidence for a relationship between DNA damage and carcinogenesis, the aim of this study was to investigate whether blood, liver, heart, kidney and brain are particularly sensitive ...
    • Cistatina C sérica: uma alternativa prática para avaliação de função renal? 

      Gabriel, Ivana Cláudia; Nishida, Sonia Kiyomi [UNIFESP]; Mastroianni Kirsztajn, Gianna [UNIFESP] (Sociedade Brasileira de Nefrologia, 2011-06-01)
      Glomerular filtration rate is the main marker of renal function in healthy in>dividuals and patients. Despite incontestable advances in medicine, it is still difficult to define precisely this test in clinical practice. ...
    • Determination of renal function in long-term heart transplant patients by measurement of urinary retinol-binding protein levels 

      Chinen, Rogerio [UNIFESP]; Câmara, Niels Olsen Saraiva [UNIFESP]; Nishida, Sonia [UNIFESP]; Silva, Marcelo de Souza [UNIFESP]; Rodrigues, Dirceu Almeida [UNIFESP]; Pereira, Aparecido Bernardo [UNIFESP]; Pacheco-Silva, Alvaro [UNIFESP] (Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica, 2006-10-01)
      Significant improvements have been noted in heart transplantation with the advent of cyclosporine. However, cyclosporine use is associated with significant side effects, such as chronic renal failure. We were interested ...
    • Mesenchymal Stem Cells Attenuate Renal Fibrosis Through Immune Modulation and Remodeling Properties in a Rat Remnant Kidney Model 

      Semedo, Patricia [UNIFESP]; Correa-Costa, Matheus [UNIFESP]; Cenedeze, Marcos Antonio [UNIFESP]; Malheiros, Denise Maria Avancini Costa; Reis, Marlene Antonia dos; Shimizu, Maria Heloisa; Seguro, Antonio Carlos; Pacheco-Silva, Alvaro [UNIFESP]; Câmara, Niels Olsen Saraiva [UNIFESP] (Alphamed Press, 2009-12-01)
      Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have regenerative properties in acute kidney injury, but their role in chronic kidney diseases is still unknown. More specifically, it is not known whether MSCs halt fibrosis. the purpose of ...
    • Study of Blood Porphyrin Spectral Profile for Diagnosis of Chronic Renal Failure 

      Tristao, Vivian Regina [UNIFESP]; Carvalho, Fernando Felippe de [UNIFESP]; Gomes, Cinthia Zanini; Miranda, Adriana Regina; Vequi-Suplicy, Cintia C.; Lamy, Maria Teresa; Schor, Nestor [UNIFESP]; Bellini, Maria Helena [UNIFESP] (Springer, 2010-05-01)
      The progression to end-stage renal failure is independent of the initial pathogenic mechanism. Metabolic acidosis is a common consequence of chronic renal failure that results from inadequate ammonium excretion and decreased ...
