Modulation of Dendritic Cell Function by HO-1 And MR: Implications on Autoimmune and Cardiovascular Disease
The adaptive immune response consists of a highly specialized system of cells and molecules that are able to recognize and destroy specific invading pathogens without affecting the host's own tissues. However, in sorne ...
Influência de periodontopatógenos na expressão e produção de peptídeos antimicrobianos e citocinas inflamatórias em neutrófilos de indivíduos saudáveis e com periodontitePeriodontopathogens influence in the expression and production of antimicrobial peptides and inflammatory cytokines in neutrophils from healthy and periodontitis individuals

Este trabalho apresenta um Sistema Imune Artificial (SIA) para tratar problemas de escalonamento. O Sistema Imunológico Artificial desenvolvido neste projeto baseia-se na estrutura arquitetura e funcionamento dos Sistemas ...
Modulation of CD8+Cytotoxic T Cell Immune Responses Against Tumors by Variable Interaction Kinetics Between thet Cell Receptor and Its Ligand, the pMHC Complex
The immune system has an important role in recognizing and eliminating a huge number of foreign antigenic molecules potentially harmful to the organism, such as pathogens andmalignant cells. One of the cell types that ...
Modulation of the Dendritic Cell Function by Activating/Inhibitory Receptors and the Half-Life of the TCR/pMHC Interaction. Implications on Immunological Synapse Function and T Cell Activation
Dendritic cells (DCs) play a fundamental role in the initiation and regulation of adaptive immune responses. Thcse cells can, in an antigcn-specific manner, either prevent or promote adaptive immunity. DCs are specialized ...
Unraveling the immune function of mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) and aldosterone in animal models.
Inflammation is a physiological response that could be triggered by endogenous and exogenous stimulus. During inflammation the response is auto limited and regulated to keep homeostasis, because uncontrolled response could ...
Identificación de los Mecanismos Moleculares Desarrollados por el Virus Respiratorio Sincicial para Evadir la Respuesta Inmune Adquirida y Generación de Cepas Bacterianas Recombinantes Inductoras de Inmunidad Anti-Viral.
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection is one of the leading causes of infant hospitalization and a major health and economic burden worldwide. Infection with this virus induces an exacerbated innate pro-inflammatory ...
Program development for interventions in the nutrition-infection complex
(National Academy of Sciences, noviembre 1978, 1978)
The magnitude of malnutrition in the world is staggering. In addition to its major causative factors, which relate specifically to food availability at the household level, infectious diseases are an omnipresent and important ...
