This study was conducted on thirty-seven neonates and healthy neonates (sixteen full term and fourteen preterm). The study aimed at revealing the role played by the NK cells in neonatal sepsis and evaluating the sensitivity of NK cell number and cytotoxicity as diagnostic markers in infants with suspected early neonatal sepsis compared with the circulating(More)
Objective: To find out the relation between Pro 12 Ala polymorphism of peroxisome proliferatoractivated receptor gamma2 (PPAR-g2) gene with type 2 diabetes mellitus and the possible role of this gene polymorphism as a link between obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Subjects and Methods: Subjects of this study were classified into 3 groups: (15)(More)
Regulatory T cells (Tregs) are thought to have a critical role in the suppression of immune responses. In addition to the prevention of the development of autoimmunity, they are thought to have a role in the prevention of allergic responses to environmental allergens. Foxp3 is transcription factor (Foxp3), which is predominantly expressed by CD4+ CD25+ T(More)
INTRODUCTION Neurogenic components, as neurotrophic factors and neuropeptides, are probably involved in the pathogenesis of atopic dermatitis (AD) with the neuroimmunocutaneous system as they modify the functions of immunoactive cells in the skin. Nerve growth factor (NGF) is the best-characterized member of the neurotrophin family. Both NGF and(More)
Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is characterized by formation of the BCR/ABL fusion gene. The response to therapy may vary because of development of secondary cytogenetic changes or resistance. In addition, suppressor of cytokine signalling (SOCS) proteins is also hypothesized as a cause of resistance and poor prognosis when aberrantly overexpressed. This(More)
The objective of this study was to determine whether the plasma levels of natriuretic peptides in preterm infants with patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) are predictors of the hemodynamic significance of the PDA shunt, and to correlate them with the clinical and echocardiographic assessment. Fifty preterm neonates, with a mean gestational age of 29.4 wk and(More)
The present study introduces a novel biotechnology for cost effective and economically feasible production of natural fungal rennin in Egypt to fulfill the local requirements of cheese industry instead of the calf rennet that is highly expensive and imported from abroad. In this study, Rhizomucor miehei NRRL 2034 exhibited the highest enzyme productivity(More)
Massive intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) in neonates is followed by progressive ventricular dilatation in 55-80% of cases if the infant survives. The initial mechanism of post hemorrhagic hydrocephalus (PHH) is thought to be obstruction by multiple small blood clots of the channels of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) to areas of absorption. Plasminogen(More)
