dna damage in nasal and brain tissues of canines exposed to air pollutants is associated with evidence of chronic brain inflammation and neurodegeneration.acute, subchronic, or chronic exposures to particulate matter (pm) and pollutant gases affect people in urban areas and those exposed to fires, disasters, and wars. respiratory tract inflammation, production of mediators of inflammation capable of reaching the brain, systemic circulation of pm, and disruption of the nasal respiratory and olfactory barriers are likely in these populations. dna damage is crucial in aging and in age-associated diseases such as alzheimer's disease. we evaluated apur ...200314692621
composition of lower urinary tract stones in canines in mexico city.effective long-term management of urolithiasis depends on identification and manipulation of factors contributing to initial stone formation; identification of these factors depends on accurate identification of the mineral composition of the urolith involved. the purpose of this study was to determine the chemical composition of uroliths obtained from the low urinary tract of dogs in mexico city. one hundred and five cases of urolithiasis were studied in which stones were surgically obtained fr ...201020077111
effects of a cyclooxygenase-2 preferential inhibitor in young healthy dogs exposed to air pollution: a pilot study.residency in cities with high air pollution is associated with neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration in healthy children, young adults, and dogs. nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs may offer neuroprotection. the authors measured the plasma concentrations of 3-nitrotyrosine and the cerebro-spinal-fluid concentrations of prostaglandin e2 metabolite and the oligomeric form of amyloid derived diffusible ligand; measured the mrna expression of cyclooxygenase-2, interleukin 1beta, cd14, and aquapo ...200919638440
air pollution, cognitive deficits and brain abnormalities: a pilot study with children and dogs.exposure to air pollution is associated with neuroinflammation in healthy children and dogs in mexico city. comparative studies were carried out in healthy children and young dogs similarly exposed to ambient pollution in mexico city. children from mexico city (n: 55) and a low polluted city (n:18) underwent psychometric testing and brain magnetic resonance imaging mri. seven healthy young dogs with similar exposure to mexico city air pollution had brain mri, measurement of mrna abundance of two ...200818550243
pediatric respiratory and systemic effects of chronic air pollution exposure: nose, lung, heart, and brain pathology.exposures to particulate matter and gaseous air pollutants have been associated with respiratory tract inflammation, disruption of the nasal respiratory and olfactory barriers, systemic inflammation, production of mediators of inflammation capable of reaching the brain and systemic circulation of particulate matter. mexico city (mc) residents are exposed to significant amounts of ozone, particulate matter and associated lipopolysaccharides. mc dogs exhibit brain inflammation and an acceleration ...200717325984
giardia intestinalis and other zoonotic parasites: prevalence in adult dogs from the southern part of mexico city.the protozoan giardia intestinalis is a mammalian-infecting parasite. it produces diarrhoea and malabsorption in its hosts. there is growing evidence that dogs could be reservoirs and play an important role in transmission. in mexico, there are few data on the frequency of g. intestinalis. therefore, we studied the small intestine of stray dogs, euthanazed at the "culhuacan" control canine centre, towards the end of 1997 and during the summer of 1998. we microscopically analysed intestinal conte ...200515927399
air pollution and brain damage.exposure to complex mixtures of air pollutants produces inflammation in the upper and lower respiratory tract. because the nasal cavity is a common portal of entry, respiratory and olfactory epithelia are vulnerable targets for toxicological damage. this study has evaluated, by light and electron microscopy and immunohistochemical expression of nuclear factor-kappa beta (nf-kappab) and inducible nitric oxide synthase (inos), the olfactory and respiratory nasal mucosae, olfactory bulb, and cortic ...200212051555
