    • Cervical cerclage placement decreases local levels of proinflammatory cytokines in patients with cervical insufficiency 

      Monsanto, Stephany P.; Daher, Silvia [UNIFESP]; Ono, Erika [UNIFESP]; Tezotto Pendeloski, Karen Priscilla [UNIFESP]; Traina, Evelyn [UNIFESP]; Mattar, Rosiane [UNIFESP]; Tayade, Chandrakant (Mosby-Elsevier, 2017)
      BACKGROUND: Cervical insufficiency is characterized by premature, progressive dilation and shortening of the cervix during pregnancy. If left unattended, this can lead to the prolapse and rupture of the amniotic membrane, ...
    • Cimetidine Reduces Interleukin-6, Matrix Metalloproteinases-1 and-9 Immunoexpression in the Gingival Mucosa of Rat Molars With Induced Periodontal Disease 

      Oliveira, Priscila Aparecida de [UNIFESP]; Pizzol Junior, Jose Paulo de [UNIFESP]; Longhini, Renata [UNIFESP; Sasso-Cerri, Estela; Cerri, Paulo Sergio (Amer Acad Periodontology, 2017)
      Background: Histamine seems to act, via H-2 receptor, on inflammatory processes by stimulating interleukin (IL)-6 and matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) release. As cimetidine is an H-2 receptor antagonist, the authors hypothesize ...
    • Efeito da cimetidina sobre a imunoexpressão das metaloproteinases da matriz -1 e -9 e da interleucina -6 na mucosa gengival com periodontite induzida em molares de ratos 

      Oliveira, Priscila Aparecida de [UNIFESP] (Universidade Federal de São Paulo (UNIFESP), 2014-07-30)
      Introduction: Matrix metalloproteinases -1 (MMP-1) and -9 (MMP-9) and interleukin- 6 (IL-6) participate in the loss of support in periodontitis. It has been shown that cimetidine, an antagonist of H2 receptor of histamine, ...
    • Efeitos do consumo de oleaginosas sobre os níveis de adiponectina e interleucina-6 em adultos e idosos com diabetes tipo 2 

      Strufaldi, Maristela Bassi [UNIFESP] (Universidade Federal de São Paulo (UNIFESP), 2016-07-26)
      Objective: To investigate the effects of oilseed consumption on adiponectin levels of high molecular weight (HMW ADIPO) and interleukin-6 (IL-6), and on the nutritional status, glycemic control and lipid profile in adults ...
    • Fish Oil Supplementation Reduces Heart Levels of Interleukin-6 in Rats with Chronic Inflammation due to Epilepsy 

      Nejm, Mariana Bocca [UNIFESP]; Abou Haidar, Andre [UNIFESP]; Hirata, Aparecida Emiko [UNIFESP]; Oyama, Lila Missae [UNIFESP]; de Almeida, Antonio-Carlos Guimaraes; Cysneiros, Roberta Monterazzo; Cavalheiro, Esper Abrao [UNIFESP]; Scorza, Carla Alessandra [UNIFESP]; Scorza, Fulvio Alexandre [UNIFESP] (Frontiers Media Sa, 2017)
      Sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP) is a major cause of premature death related to epilepsy. The causes of SUDEP remain unknown, but cardiac arrhythmias and asphyxia have been suggested as a major mechanism of this ...
    • Interleukin-6 and procalcitonin in children with sepsis and septic shock 

      Fioretto, Jose R.; Martin, Joelma G.; Kurokawa, Cilmery S.; Carpi, Mario F.; Bonatto, Rossano C.; Ricchetti, Sandra M. Q.; Moraes, Marcos A. de; Padovani, Carlos R. (Elsevier B.V., 2008-08-01)
      Objectives. To examine the behavior of interleukin-6 (IL-6) and procalcitonin (PCT) and verify whether they can be used to differentiate children with septic conditions. Methods. Septic children aged between 28 days and ...
    • Interleukin-6-174 G/C promoter gene polymorphism in nasal polyposis and asthma 

      Kosugi, Eduardo Macoto [UNIFESP]; De Camargo-Kosugi, Cintia Meirelles [UNIFESP]; Hirai, Elcio Roldan [UNIFESP]; Mendes Neto, José Arruda [UNIFESP]; Gregario, Luis Carlos [UNIFESP]; Cotrim Guerreiro-Da-Silva, Ismael Dale [UNIFESP]; Weckx, Luc Louis Maurice [UNIFESP] (Int Rhinologic Soc, 2013-03-01)
      Background: Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is an inflammatory mediator linked to nasal polyposis and asthma, with a single nucleotide polymorphism - 174 G/C that seems to promote an inflammatory status. We aimed to analyze the ...
    • Interleukin-6-174 G/C promoter polymorphism and nasal polyposis 

      Kosugi, Eduardo Macoto [UNIFESP]; Camargo-Kosugi, Cintia Meirelles de [UNIFESP]; Maurice Weckx, Luc Louis [UNIFESP]; Silva, Ismael Dale Cotrim Guerreiro da [UNIFESP]; Gregorio, Luiz Carlos [UNIFESP] (Int Rhinologic Soc, 2009-12-01)
      Introduction: Nasal polyposis is a chronic disease with unknown etiopathogenesis, although inflammatory mechanisms seem to play a role. One of several inflammatory mediators linked to nasal polyposis is Interleukin-6, which ...
    • Serum and cellular interleukin-6 in haemodialysis patients: relationship with energy expenditure 

      Kamimura, Maria Ayako [UNIFESP]; Draibe, Sergio Antonio [UNIFESP]; Dalboni, Maria Aparecida [UNIFESP]; Cendoroglo, Miguel [UNIFESP]; Avesani, Carla M. [UNIFESP]; Manfredi, Silvia R. [UNIFESP]; Canziani, Maria E. F. [UNIFESP]; Cuppari, Lilian [UNIFESP] (Oxford Univ Press, 2007-03-01)
