The objective of the Registry was to characterize the population of infants receiving prophylaxis for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) disease by describing the patterns and scope of usage of palivizumab in a cross section of US infants. RSV hospitalization outcomes were also described. The Palivizumab (Synagis, MedImmune, Inc., 25 West Watkins Mill Road,(More)
RATIONALE Asthma prevalence and morbidity are especially elevated in adolescents, yet few interventions target this population. OBJECTIVES To test the efficacy of Asthma Self-Management for Adolescents (ASMA), a school-based intervention for adolescents and medical providers. METHODS Three hundred forty-five primarily Latino/a (46%) and African American(More)
BACKGROUND Drug abuse and its consequences are major health problems in Middle-East countries such as Iran. Salesmen and smugglers may add lead to opium during the process of opium preparation to increase the weight of opium for more profit. Several reports have found lead poisoning symptoms in opium addicted patients and there are many nonspecific symptoms(More)
Anti-inflammatory effects of antidepressants have been reported in some studies, but the mechanisms underlying these effects remain unknown. Amitriptyline, a tricyclic antidepressant, is widely used in the management of psychological disorders and various types of pain, including neuropathic pain or fibromyalgia. In our previous work, we found the role of(More)
In order to evaluate the effect of seed Osmopriming by using PEG6000 priming media on germination behavior and seed vigor of soybean (cultivar 033) an experiment was conducted at Seed analysis laboratory of agricultural and natural resources center of Sari, Iran. Seeds were primed with six levels of Poly ethylene glycol (PEG6000) as priming media (distilled(More)
BACKGROUND At 5:28 a.m. (local time) on December 26, 2003, an earthquake measuring 6.51 on the Richter scale struck the city of Bam in the Kerman Province in southeastern Iran.

CONTEXT Nasturtium officinale R. Br. (watercress) has long been used in Iranian folk medicine to treat hypertension, hyperglycemia, and renal colic. Moreover, anticancer, antioxidant, and hepatoprotective properties of N. officinale have been reported. OBJECTIVE In this study, anti-inflammatory activity of the hydro-alcoholic extract from aerial parts of(More)
This paper presents a new approach to predict the condensed phase heat of formation in important classes of energetic compounds including acyclic and cyclic nitramines, nitrate esters and nitroaliphatics. The condensed phase heat of formation has been expressed by a combination of a core heat of formation, which is a function of elemental composition of the(More)
The simplest method is introduced for reliable estimating the detonation velocity of large class of CHNO explosives based elemental composition and specific structural groups. There is no need to use heat of formation and the other experimental data for calculation of detonation velocity in the new procedure. Only elemental composition and the number of(More)
Seed priming is a method to improve germination and seedling establishment under stress conditions. The effect of seed priming in chemical solutions such as urea and KNO3, on protein and proline content, germination, and seedling growth responses of four maize (Zea mays L.) hybrids under drought and salt stress conditions was studied in a controlled(More)
