Studies on the immediate and long-term effects of radiation on the B-system immunity of children who were affected by radiation after the Chernobyl disaster (from 1986-1992) are summarized in this paper. Complete clinical and immunological examination of more than 6000 children have been carried out. The dynamics of the immune system, with ongoing reactions(More)
BACKGROUND Gonorrhoea and widely spread antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in its etiological agent Neisseria gonorrhoeae are major public health concerns worldwide. Gonococcal AMR surveillance nationally and internationally, to identify emerging resistance and inform treatment guidelines, is imperative for public health purposes. In 2009, AMR surveillance was(More)
The ultra-structure of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) was examined by transmission electronic (TEM)) and atomic force microscopy (AFM). The study was performed to describe the morphology of susceptible, multidrug-resistant (MDR), extensively drug-resistant (XDR) and extremely drug-resistant tuberculosis isolates (XXDR-TB) during their exponential growth(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the significance of multiple mutations in the rpoB gene as well as predominant nucleotide changes and their correlation with high levels of resistance to rifampin (rifampicin) in Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates that were randomly collected from the sputa of 46 patients with primary and secondary cases of active(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the frequency, location and type of rpoB mutations in Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolated from patients in Iran. 91 sputum were collected from suspected tuberculosis patients, 34 Rif-r isolates (87%) were identified as M. tuberculosis. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification and DNA sequencing methods were(More)
OBJECTIVE Autoantibodies against C1q (anti-C1q) have been found in a number of autoimmune and renal diseases. They are best described in adult patients with systemic lupus erythematosus, where a strong correlation between the occurrence of anti-C1q and severe lupus nephritis (LN) has been observed. However, the role of anti-C1q in children with systemic(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the frequency, location and type of katG mutations in Mycobacterium tuberculosis collected from patients in southern endemic region of Iran. Drug susceptibility testing was determined by using the BACTEC system and CDC standard conventional proportional method. All 28 isolates were resistant to isoniazid (100%),(More)
BACKGROUND The potential use of microorganisms as agents of biological warfare (BW) is a growing concern. Lassa virus, a member of the Arenavirus class of Hemorrhagic fever (HF) viruses has emerged as a worldwide concern among public health officials. The purpose of the present study was to further elucidate the antiviral activity spectrum of stampidine, a(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the frequency, location and type of katG mutations in Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains isolated from patients in Belarus. Forty two isoniazid-resistant isolates were identified from sputum of 163 patients with active pulmonary tuberculosis. Drug susceptibility testing was determined by using CDC standard(More)
