Background: Wound healing is a dynamic process with inflammatory response and oxidative reaction in the damaged area. Alpha ointment (AO) and Arnebia euchroma (Arnebia) are herbal medicines with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects that can be used as wound healing agents. AO is a commonly used ointment while Arnebia is a newly introduced one.(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the association of large-scale deletions of mtDNA between idiopathic astheno, asthenoterato and oligoasthenoterato-spermic as patient group and normospermic as control group. Forty semen samples including: 10 asthenospermic (A), 10 asthenoteratospermic (AT), 10 oligoasthenoteratospermic (OAT) and 10 normospermic(More)
Extracting the activity of a particular neural fiber from the extracellular recording of a peripheral nerve is quite important from different clinical perspectives. While traditional neural recording methods are unable to provide such granularity, new signal recording and processing techniques have offered promising solutions recently. A multi-electrode(More)
The Plasmodium falciparum apical membrane antigen1 (AMA1) is a leading malaria vaccine candidate antigen. In the present investigation, for the first time, the almost full length of the ama1 gene covering domain I (DI), DII and DIII was PCR amplified and sequenced in 21 P. falciparum isolates collected from the southeastern parts of Iran. The result showed(More)
Complex coacervation in exfoliated Laponite nanoplatelets and fish gelatin mixtures was studied as a function of four key parameters: pH, ionic strength, gelatin/Laponite weight ratio, and total weight. The aim was to understand how these parameters influence phase separation kinetics, composition, internal structure, and viscoelastic properties of(More)
There are still many difficulties for developing the projects of using treated effluents. In this study, the efficiency of chlorine deoxide in the process of preparing the effluent of Sahebgharanieh Plant of Tehran for reuse purposes has been determind. Major results are as follows: Total COD reductions resulted from effluent treatment by ClO2 solutions(More)
INTRODUCTION In stem cell-based therapy as a subtype of regenerative medicine, stem cells can be used to replace or repair injured tissue and cells in order to treat disease. Stem cells have the ability to integrate into injured areas and produce new cells via processes of proliferation and differentiation. Several studies have demonstrated that hypoxia(More)
BACKGROUND Extracted sperm from the testis have poor motility. Moreover, their motility changes during their journey through epidydimis. Meanwhile, they face high concentration of L-carnitin. In addition, lactate dehydrogenase C4 (LDH-C4) gene disorders has been shown to cause impaired sperm motility, leading to infertility in male mice. The aim of this(More)
INTRODUCTION Bioaerosols are agents that can cause infection, allergy or induce other toxic effects in the human body. If the person exposed to such particles is not capable of their destruction or elimination from the body, the established chemical and physiological disorders can result in disease or death. The aim of this study was to assess the(More)
Article type: Original article Background & aim: Medication errors are among the most serious health errors threatening patient safety in all countries, with major impacts on public health. Midwives as members of healthcare systems are prone to such errors. Therefore, in this study, we aimed to determine medication errors and the contributing factors among(More)
