The effect of interval space between the concentration (symmetric or geometric), number of concentrations and overall sample sizes were investigated using a Petri dish bioassay, the miticide propargite and two spider mites species. The precision (width of the 95% confidence intervals) of the LC50 and LC90 estimates was shown to be influenced by the test(More)
Visceral leishmaniasis (VL) or kala-azar mainly affects children in endemic areas. This study was conducted to determine the seroprevalence of VL using direct agglutination test (DAT) in children living in rural districts of Alborz Province located 30 km from Tehran capital city of Iran. Multi-stage cluster random sampling was applied. Blood samples were(More)
BACKGROUND Apical Membrane antigen 1 (AMA-1) is positioned on the surface of merozoite and it may play a role in attack to red blood cells. The main aim of present study was to determine the genetic variation, as well as, to detect of selection at domain I of AMA-1 gene Plasmodium vivax isolates in Iran. METHODS Blood samples were collected from 58(More)
Six different bioassay methods were evaluated using propargite (Omite 30% wettable powder (WP) and fenbutatin oxide (Torque 50% (WP) and 55% suspension concentrate (SC)) with twospotted spider mite, Tetranychus uriticae Koch (TSM) and European red mite, Panonychus ulmi Koch (ERM) to document their utility and precision for estimating median lethal(More)
BACKGROUND This paper presents the methodology and primary findings of a national project on determinants of weight disorders among Iranian children and adolescents at national and sub-national levels. METHODS This nationwide study was conducted in 2011-2012 in Iran as part of the fourth phase of a national surveillance program entitled Childhood and(More)
BACKGROUND During withdrawal, patients experience different symptoms. These symptoms are associated with relapse. Understanding different outcomes of methamphetamine abstinence is useful for finding better treatments for dependence. OBJECTIVES This study aimed to show the effects of abstinence on depression, anxiety, and quality of life in methamphetamine(More)
The present study was undertaken to detect and quantify the left over residue of Diazinon and Carbosulfan in brinjal and Quinalphos in yard long bean and comparison between the detected residue level with maximum residue level (MRL) set by FAO (1970). Three supervised field trials (two for brinjal and one for yard long bean) were carried out sprayed with(More)
BACKGROUND Curcumin (diferuloylmethane) has been associated with the inhibition of angiogenesis, as well as the prevention of cancers and inflammatory processes. The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy of curcumin in suppressing angiogenesis in the cultured endothelial cells of rat aortic rings. METHODS Eight-week-old male Wistar rats were(More)
In delay tolerant networks (DTNs), custody transfer mechanism provides reliable end-to-end data transfer in which special nodes (custodians) transfer data with custody in a hop-by-hop manner. As a result, storage congestion occurs when data with custody increases and/or the network is partitioned into multiple sub-networks for a long time. The storage(More)
