It is well documented that inhalation of sulfur mustard (SM) causes injury to the respiratory system. Many Iranian civilians and war veterans are suffering from late respiratory complications of SM exposure. Recent studies have shown that bronchiolitis obliterans (BO) is the major cause of respiratory complications following SM exposure. In this review, we(More)
INTRODUCTION. Helicobacter pylori infection in gastric mucosa may cause systemic inflammatory reaction. We investigated the inflammatory effect of H pylori infection on nutritional factors such as serum albumin in hemodialysis patients and influence of eradication of H pylori on this association. MATERIALS AND METHODS. Ninety-eight patients on hemodialysis(More)
In many signal processing applications including Audio and speech processing as well as other research areas of diagnosis of failures in rotating machinery, finding a compact representation of observations signals is often highly desirable. In this respect, chirplets have recently been introduced as an efficient tool for signal representation. However,(More)
We report a 21-year-old woman who was admitted because of unilateral facial paresis and then developed progressive ascending flaccid tetraparesis with generalized areflexia. Electrodiagnostic studies revealed acute motor axonal polyradiculoneuropathy (AMAN type of Guillain-Barré Syndrome). Further evaluations revealed severe leukocytosis, increased(More)
Estimation of residual risk is essential to monitor and improve blood safety. Our epidemiologic knowledge in the Iranian donor population regarding transfusion transmitted viral infections (TTIs), is confined to a few studies based on prevalence rate. There are no reports on residual risk of TTIs in Iran. In present survey, a software database of donor(More)
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is widely associated with asthma, chronic cough, and laryngitis. Many studies have focused on acidic reflux; however, acid is just one of many factors that can cause pulmonary injury. The discrepancy between the high frequency of GERD in asthmatic patients and the ineffective reflux therapy outcomes in these patients(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Gastro-esophageal reflux has been suggested to be associated with several pulmonary complications such as asthma, and post-transplant bronchiolitis obliterans (BO). Pepsin or bile salts in the sputum is shown to be an optimal molecular marker of gastric contents macro/micro aspiration. In this study, we investigated sputum pepsin as a marker(More)
We present a new reliability-based hybrid automatic repeat request (RB-HARQ) scheme based on low density parity check (LDPC) codes. With the proposed RB-HARQ, which uses a rate-compatible LDPC code with puncturing and extending, the longest codeword is divided into clusters of code bits. Unlike previous works, in the event of a decoding failure, the(More)
