There is a high incidence of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) in Iran. Non-functionality of some tumor suppressor genes has been reported in esophageal cancer. Loss of heterozygosity on chromosome 5 has also been reported in esophageal carcinomas. We assessed loss of heterozygosity along a region of the long arm of chromosome 5 (5q), from(More)
The underlying mechanisms leading to the development of human T-cell lymphotropic virus type I (HTLV-I) associated myelopathy/tropical spastic paraparesis (HAM/TSP) in HTLV-I infected individuals are not fully understood. Host genetic factors appear to be involved as risk factors for developing HAM/TSP. We investigated the possible contribution of(More)
In this study, the effect of increasing doses of aspirin on the neurite outgrowth of Dorsal Root Ganglia (DRG) was investigated. DRG were cultured in complete medium (DMEM + 10% FCS +100 ng/ml NGF + collagen Type1 in substratum in 96 multiwell plate) in the presence of concentration of 1.25, 2.5, 5 and 10 mM aspirin. The neurite outgrowth of DRG was(More)
