Cell mediated immunity is the most important response against Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB). Regulatory T cells (Treg) play a vital role in suppressing the effector T cell response in tuberculosis (TB) patients. Forkhead box protein 3 (Foxp3) is an important regulator of Treg cells development and function. In this study, we showed that the expression of(More)
The role of HFE gene mutations or its expression in regulation of iron metabolism of hereditary haemochromatosis (HH) patients is remained controversial. Therefore here the correlation between two common HFE genotype (p.C282Y, p.H63D) and HFE gene expression with iron status in HH, iron deficiency anemia (IDA) and healthy Iranian participants was studied.(More)
BACKGROUND Two important genes for controlling TB are IFNγ and IFNγR1. However, little information exists regarding genetic susceptibility of the Iranian TB population. METHODS We investigated the single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in genes of IFNγ (+874 A/T) and IFNγR1 (-56 C/T) and serum level of IFNγ and their influence on TB in patients; 300(More)
