The polymorphonuclear cells (PMN's) of 20 patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) were analyzed for endocytic ability and metabolic capacity and were compared to those from a healthy control group over short intervals. The results of these studies indicate that the phagocytic activity (PA) and the nitroblue tetrazolium (NBT) dye reduction were significantly(More)
BACKGROUND One of the main usages of social networks in clinical studies is facilitating the process of sampling and case finding for scientists. The main focus of this study is on comparing two different methods of sampling through phone calls and using social network, for study purposes. METHODS One of the researchers started calling 214 families of(More)
PURPOSE Unsafe behaviors are an important cause of accidents in adolescent age groups. This study was designed to examine the behaviors of adolescent pedestrians in southern Iran. METHODS This is a descriptive analytical cross-sectional study. The study population consisted of high school students in Shiraz, capital city of Fars Province, Iran. Five(More)
Polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN) chemotaxis and serum chemoattractant ability were studied in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) employing the agarose plate technique. No statistically significant differences were observed in random migration of unstimulated cells compared to the controls. Moreover, there were no statistically significant differences(More)
A previous article has shown a diminished phagocytic and intracellular metabolic activity of the polymorphonuclear cells (PMN's) from patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). No correlation was found between PMN's functions with either clinical or laboratory expression of disease activity. In the present study the effects of rheumatoid sera on PMN's(More)
