Molecule with potential to treat multiple sclerosis and asthma passes toxicology testing in zebrafish
Study conducted at CeTICS shows that anti-inflammatory peptide TnP could lead to drug development.
A study by RIDC CRID has discovered that when macrophages engulf cells infected by the novel coronavirus, they begin producing excessive amounts of pro-inflammatory molecules, and their capacity to recognize and phagocytize dead cells is reduced twelvefold.
A method created in Brazil by the Human Genome and Stem Cell Research Center could be used for large-scale production of livers for transplantation.
Project at the Center for Computing in Engineering and Sciences focus on solutions for Science- and Engineering-related problems using a fiber-optics interconnected FPGA cluster that works as a fast Multi-FPGA architecture.
Researchers from UNICAMP used functional magnetic resonance imaging to assess 86 volunteers who had moderate COVID-19 and compared the results with those of uninfected volunteers. Preliminary findings have not yet been published but were presented during the 7th BRAINN Congress.
Researchers at a center for neuromathematics say dreams reflect the fear and anxiety fueled by the disease.
In a study of the effects of cigarette smoking on exacerbation of the disease, scientists at RIDC CRID identified a novel pathway in the inflammatory process relating to bone damage.
