Sensitive detection of salbutamol using europium-enhanced fluorescence with trioctylphosphine oxide (TOPO) as coligand
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2005-09)
In this work a simple and sensitive fluorimetric method for determination of salbutamol (4-[2-(tert-butylamino)-1-hydroxyethyl]-2-(hydroxymethyl) phenol) using an Eu enhanced signal was developed. The employed methodology ...
The β2-adrenergic agonist salbutamol inhibits migration, invasion and metastasis of the human breast cancer MDA-MB-231 cell line
(Bentham Science Publishers, 2017)
Background: Breast cancer is the most diagnosed and the major cause of cancer death in women worldwide. Metastasis is the main cause of these deaths. The metastatic cascade involves multiple steps and it has been described ...
Involvement of alpha2 and beta2-adrenoceptors on breast cancer cell proliferation and tumour growth regulation
Background and purpose: Beta-adrenoceptor (B-AR) expression is known in human and experimental animal breast cancer cells. However, the effect of the agonists and antagonists reported on cell proliferation and tumour growth ...
Strongyloides stercoralis infection after the use of emergency corticosteroids: A case report on hyperinfection syndrome
(BioMed Central, 2019)
Background: In clinical practice, identification of a case of severe asthma exacerbation prompts initiation of corticosteroids. However, not all that wheezes is asthma. Case presentation: A 61-year-old man from the Peruvian ...
Obesity alters the uterine environment before pregnancy
(Elsevier Science Inc, 2018-12)
Obesity is a metabolic disorder that predisposes to numerous diseases and has become a major global public health concern. Cafeteria diet (CAF) is the animal model used for the study of obesity that more closely reflects ...
Predictive QSPR study of the dissociation constants of diverse pharmaceutical compounds
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2010-11)
The objective of the article was to perform a predictive analysis, based on quantitative structure-property relationships, of the dissociation constants (pKa) of different medicinal compounds (e.g., salicylic acid, salbutamol, ...
Alpha 1 adrenergic receptor-mediated inflammatory responses in human testicular peritubular cells
(Elsevier Ireland, 2018-10-15)
Stress activates the sympathetic nervous system and is linked to impaired fertility in man. We hypothesized that catecholamines by acting on testicular cells have a role in these events, possibly by fostering an inflammatory ...
Obesity modifies the implantation window and disrupts intrauterine embryo positioning in rats
Obesity is a chronic disease that impairs female reproduction. When gestation is achieved, maternal obesity can cause offspring’s health complications. We intended to evaluate the effects of maternal pre-conceptional obesity ...
