Predictors of mental and physical health in non-cirrhotic patients with viral hepatitis: a case control study.
TLDR
In viral hepatitis patients, besides mental and medical comorbidities, marital status, and alcohol abuse, HCV infection itself is associated with impaired physical and possibly mental health. Expand
Effectiveness of polypill for primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular diseases (PolyIran): a pragmatic, cluster-randomised trial
TLDR
The PolyIran study aimed to assess the effectiveness and safety of a four-component polypill including aspirin, atorvastatin, hydrochlorothiazide, and either enalapril or valsartan for primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease. Expand
A novel approach for selecting combination clinical markers of pathology applied to a large retrospective cohort of surgically resected pancreatic cysts
TLDR
To derive optimal markers for cyst classification from the preoperative clinical and radiological data, a statistical approach for combining any number of categorical, dichotomous, or continuous-valued clinical parameters into individual predictors of pathology is developed. Expand
Intracoronary ALLogeneic heart STem cells to Achieve myocardial Regeneration (ALLSTAR): a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blinded trial.
TLDR
Intracoronary infusion of allogeneic CDCs in patients with post-MI LV dysfunction was safe but did not reduce scar size relative to placebo at 6’months, Nevertheless, the reductions in LV volumes and NT-proBNP reveal disease-modifying bioactivity of CDCs. Expand
Cardiac and skeletal muscle effects in the randomized HOPE-Duchenne trial
TLDR
This phase I/II study provides Class II evidence that for patients with DMD, intracoronary CAP- 1002 is feasible and appears safe and potentially effective and future clinical research on CAP-1002 treatment of DMD cardiac and skeletal myopathies is warranted. Expand
Association of Elevated NT-proBNP With Myocardial Fibrosis in the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA).
TLDR
Elevated NT-proBNP is related to subclinical fibrosis in a community-based setting in the MESA (Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis) study. Expand
Opium use, cigarette smoking, and alcohol consumption in relation to pancreatic cancer
TLDR
In this study, opium use and alcohol consumption were associated with an increased risk of pancreatic cancer, whereas cigarette smoking was not. Expand
Teapot ureterocystoplasty and ureteral Mitrofanoff channel for bilateral megaureters: technical points and surgical results of neurogenic bladder.
TLDR
Although neurogenic bladder and high grade reflux are poor prognostic factors for ureterocystoplasty, the present modification resulted in enduring bladder augmentation with no calculus formation. Expand
Impact of Helicobacter pylori Infection and Microscopic Duodenal Histopathological Changes on Clinical Symptoms of Patients with Functional Dyspepsia
TLDR
Microscopic duodenitis in H. pylori-infected patients may play a major role in producing and aggravating symptoms in FD patients and may be a determinant factor to consider in whether to treat H.pylori infection in functional dyspepsia. Expand
Seroprevalence of Hepatitis B Surface Antigen and Anti Hepatitis C Antibody in Zahedan City, Iran: A Population-Based Study
TLDR
This is the first population-based study on the prevalence of HCVAb and one of the few population based studies on HBsAg in Zahedan City and thinks that the observed low prevalence rates have been achieved due to the efficiency of mass vaccination projects, implemented against HBV infection in Iran.
