Peripheral lymph nodes, located deep in the subcutaneous tissue, clean antigens from the extracellular fluid. Generally, a normal sized lymph node is less than one cm in diameter. Peripheral lymphadenopathy (LAP) is frequently due to a local or systemic, benign, self-limited, infectious disease. However, it could be a manifestation of underlying malignancy.(More)
BACKGROUND Recently, nicotinamide has been suggested as an effective drug for hyperphosphatemia in hemodialysis patients. The authors assessed the efficacy and safety of nicotinamide in these patients with lower doses and longer duration than other studies. METHODS Forty eight patients with fasting serum phosphorus >5 mg/dl enrolled in this randomized(More)
BACKGROUND Renal injury is common following cisplatin infusion. Some agents have been used to attenuate cisplatin nephrotoxicity. However, except hydration, none of them has been proved to be effective. OBJECTIVE In this study selenium as an antioxidant supplement was tested on cisplatin induced renal injury. PATIENTS AND METHODS 122 cancerous patients(More)
Although blockade of renin-angiotensin system have been cited as the first line of therapy for the management of diabetic nephropathy (DN), however in a substantial number of patients, progression of renal disease are not completely halted by these agents. We have conducted a double blinded clinical trial to assess the additive effect of pentoxifylline on(More)
INTRODUCTION Osteoporosis develops and progresses in a considerable number of kidney transplant patients. Bisphosphonates, which are used for prevention and treatment of osteoporosis, may accentuate gasterointestinal complications and lead to more nonadherence to treatment. This randomized clinical trial was conducted to compare the effect of pamidronate(More)
BACKGROUND This study examined the effect of grape seed proanthocyanidin extract (GSPE) on lipid peroxidation content and activity of tissue antioxidant enzymes, including catalase, superoxide dismutase and glutathione peroxidase in diabetic rats. METHODS Thirty male rats were divided into three groups of 10 rats each: control, diabetic and diabetic(More)
Cisplatin is a potent and a major anti-neoplastic drug in the treatment of a broad spectrum of malignancies. However, its clinical use is limited by renal tubular dysfunction that occurs in a significant percent of patients. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the possible protective effect of theophyline in the prevention of cisplatin-induced(More)
Generalization continues to be one of the most important topic in neural networks and other classifiers. In the last number of years, number of different methods have been developed to improve generalization accuracy. Any classifier that uses induction to find the class concept from the training patterns will have hard time to achieve acceptable level of(More)

Time series are composed of sequences of data items measured at typically uniform intervals. Time series arise frequently in many scientific and engineering applications, including finance, medicine, digital audio, and motion capture. Time series motifs are repeated similar subseries in one or multiple time series data. Time series anomalies are unusual(More)
