Candida species are opportunistic pathogens that infect immunocompromised and/or immunosuppressed patients, particularly in hospital facilities, that besides representing a significant threat to health increase the risk of mortality. Apart from echinocandins and triazoles, which are well tolerated, most of the antifungal drugs used for candidiasis treatment can cause side effects and lead to the development of resistant strains. A promising alternative to the conventional treatments is the use of plant proteins...

Proteins and peptides able to resist gastrointestinal digestion and reach the intestinal mucosa have the potential to influence human health. Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) seed proteins are able to resist cooking (86.9% total protein) and/or in vitro simulated human digestion (15.9% total protein resists soaking, cooking and digestion with pepsin and pancreatin). To identify and characterize proteins resisting digestion we made use of different MS methodologies. The efficiency of several proteases (trypsin, AspN, chymotrypsin and LysC) was tested, and two technologies were employed (MALDI-TOF-TOF and LC-nESI-MS/MS)...

We report the electrochromic properties of a polymeric nanocomposite prepared by potentiodynamic deposition of the transition metal complex [Ni(3-Mesalen)], designated as [1], in the presence of TiO2 nanoparticles (NPs) with average size of 9.7 ± 1.1 nm. Entrapment of TiO2 NPs in the poly[1] matrix was confirmed by several techniques. The nanocomposite TiO2@poly[1] films showed similar electrochemical responses to the original (nanoparticle-free) poly[1] films, but with higher electroactive surface coverages (), showing the advantage of the nanocomposite preparation...

Visceral leishmaniasis is a neglected disease caused by Leishmania protozoa parasites transmitted by infected sand fly vectors. This disease represents the second in mortality among tropical infections and is associated to a profound immunosuppression state of the host. The hallmark of this infection-induced host immunodeviation is the characteristic high levels of the regulatory interleukin-10 (IL-10) cytokine. In the present study, we investigated the role of B-1 cells in the maintenance of splenic IL-10 levels that could interfere with resistance to parasite infection...

An electrochromic nanocomposite based on a nickel-salen polymeric film - poly[Ni(3-Mesalen)], Mesalen=N,N'-bis(3-methylsalicylideneiminate) - and graphene nanoplatelets (GFNPs) with enhanced electrochromic stability was successfully prepared by anodic electropolymerization. Although the electrochemical processes typical of the polymer film were not changed by the presence of graphene, higher electroactive surface coverages could be obtained for nanocomposite films, which suggest the incorporation of GFNPs into the polymeric network...

BACKGROUND DATA: Light emitting diode (LED) therapy has been proposed as an option for the treatment of many skin inflammatory processes. Dendritic cells (DCs) are important cells of skin that participate in the initiation and activation of skin immunity. The modulation of these cells by LED could explain much of its effects. OBJECTIVE: Thus, the aim of this study was to examine the effects of LED at 460 ± 20 nm on cytokine production and the expression of surface markers on DCs...

Trypanosoma cruzi is an obligatory intracellular protozoan parasite, and it is the etiological agent of Chagas' disease that is endemic in the Americas. In addition to humans, a wide spectrum of mammals can be infected by T. cruzi, including dogs. Dogs develop acute and chronic disease, similar to human infection. T. cruzi can infect almost all cell types and after cell invasion, the metacyclics trypomastigotes localize in the cytoplasm, where they transform into amastigotes, the replicative form of T. cruzi in mammals...

This study examined the implementation of Brazil's National Oral Health Policy by the three governments during the period 2003 to 2014. It provides a general overview of oral health care scenarios and examines institutional proposals and actions developed by the executive branch based on the components of the health care system. A documental analysis was conducted using documents produced by key government agencies. The findings show that there was an increase in the provision and coverage of public dental services between 2003 and 2006 and that rates were maintained to a certain degree in subsequent periods (2007 to 2010 and 2011 to 2014)...

In this paper we report reflections about the scholarly mentoring experiences of undergraduate nursing students (mentees) and faculty members (mentors) involved in an intellectual partnership at a Canadian university. The paper specifically recounts the impacts of the transformative process experienced by 18 mentees and three mentors, based on their in-depth written critical reflections. In this collaborative initiative, the constructivist framework of Shor and Freire, and Mezirow's Transformative Learning Theory, served as foundations for all interactions between mentees and mentors, and guided the analysis and interpretation of their written self-reflections...

Biphasic systems composed of aprotic ionic liquids (ILs) allow the development of new separation processes constituted only by non-volatile solvents. Six pairs of cholinium- and phosphonium-based ILs were found to be able to form biphasic systems, and the respective liquid-liquid phase diagrams were determined. Although IL anions do not seem to control the phase separation phenomenon, they play an important role on defining the size of the biphasic region. A linear dependence of the ILs mutual solubilities with the IL anions volume was found, supporting the relevance of the entropy of mixing...

The friction phenomenon is a ubiquitous manifestation of nature. Models considering phononic, electronic, magnetic, and electrostatic interactions are invoked to explain the fundamental forces involved in the friction phenomenon. In order to establish the incidence of the phonon prompting at the nanoscale friction by direct contact, we study a diamond spherical dome sliding on carbon thin films containing different amount of deuterium and hydrogen. The friction coefficient decreases by substituting hydrogen by deuterium atoms...

Human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs), including embryonic stem cells (hESCs) and induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs), have great potential as an unlimited donor source for cell-based therapeutics. The risk of teratoma formation from residual undifferentiated cells, however, remains a critical barrier to the clinical application of these cells. Herein we describe external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) as an attractive option for the treatment of this iatrogenic growth. We present the evidence that EBRT is effective in arresting growth of hESC-derived teratomas in vivo at day 28 post-implantation by utilizing a microCT irradiator capable of targeted treatment in small animals...
