OBJECTIVE Acute respiratory infection (ARI) is the major cause of morbidity and mortality in children worldwide. Human respiratory syncytial virus (HRSV) is main viral agent of ARI in infants and young children in terms of effect and prevalence. The aim of this study was to investigate HRSV genotypes during one season in Iran. METHODS In this(More)
Transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) pathway is involved in primary tumor progression and in promoting metastasis in a considerable proportion of human cancers such as colorectal cancer (CRC). Therefore, blockage of TGF-β pathway signaling via an inhibitor could be a valuable tool in CRC treatment. To evaluate the efficacy of systemic targeting of the TGF-β(More)
In order to have information on the molecular epidemiology and genetic circulation pattern of human respiratory syncytial virus (HRSV) in Iran, we studied the genetic variability of both group A and B HRSV strains during seven consecutive years by sequencing the hypervariable C-terminal domain of G protein. A total of 485 children <2years of age who were(More)
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a notable cause of cancer‑associated mortality worldwide, making it a pertinent topic for the study of cancer and its treatment. Staphylococcal enterotoxin B (SEB), an enterotoxin produced by Staphylococcus aureus, has been demonstrated to exert anticancer and antimetastatic effects due to its ability to modify cell immunity and(More)
INTRODUCTION Brucella spp. are gram-negative, facultative intracellular bacteria pathogens responsible for brucellosis, a zoonotic disease that can cause abortion, fetal death, and genital infections in animals and undulant fever in humans. Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is known as a major virulence factor of Brucella spp. The wboA gene is capable of encoding a(More)
Infection with human herpes viruses has been suggested to contribute to multiple sclerosis (MS), while interaction between human herpes 6 (HHV6) and MS remain unclear yet. Here, we conducted a meta-analysis on the relationship of HHV6 infection and MS. All related studies were collected from major databases. The analyses were performed by STATA 14 and(More)
Gastric cancer is among the leading causes of cancer-related death, and the symptoms are commonly characterized in advanced stages. Histone acetylation is among the most important epigenetic alterations occurring during cancer development. In addition, reduced E-cadherin expression is a major contributor in the process of tumor cell invasion and metastasis.(More)
Human respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a leading cause of acute respiratory infection during early childhood and imposes a great burden on patients, parents, and society. Disease is thought to be caused, at least partially, by an excessive immune response. Pulmonary leukocyte infiltration is the result of a coordinated expression of diverse chemokines(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Gastric cancer (GC) is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide and is the most frequent cancer in Iran. Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) has been shown to be associated with gastric cancer. The present study was carried out to investigate the prevalence of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) associated gastric cancer among Iranian patients.(More)
