Intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) due to placental insufficiency is a leading cause of perinatal complications for which there is no effective prenatal therapy. We have previously demonstrated that intraplacental injection of adenovirus-mediated insulin-like growth factor-1 (Ad-IGF-1) corrects fetal weight in a murine IUGR model induced by mesenteric(More)
Resistin and visfatin have been proposed as playing a role in the pathogenesis of insulin resistance. We assessed the relationship between their serum concentrations and insulin resistance in lean, obese diabetic and obese non-diabetic. We explore their relationship with inflammatory markers and anthropometric parameters in obese patients. We measured serum(More)
This paper presents a review of available algorithms and plagiarism detection systems، and an implementation of Plagiarism Detection System using available search engines on the web. Plagiarism detection in natural language documents is a complicated problem and it is related to the characteristics of the language itself. There are many available algorithms(More)
BACKGROUND Fetal growth restriction (FGR) is a risk factor for adult cardiovascular disease. Intraplacental gene transfer of human insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) corrects birth weight in our mouse model of FGR. This study addresses long term effects of FGR on cardiac function and the potential preventive effect of IGF-1. STUDY DESIGN Laparotomy was(More)
