Detection of virulence genes in Escherichia coli isolated from patients with cystitis and pyelonephritis.
BACKGROUND Uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC) is a common cause of ascending urinary tract infections including cystitis and pyelonephritis. The purpose of this study was to investigate virulenceExpand
Virulence Genes and Antimicrobial Resistance Pattern in Uropathogenic Escherichia coli Isolated From Hospitalized Patients in Kashan, Iran
Background: Urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the most prevalent infectious diseases. Uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC), as the most important cause of UTI, are associated with a number ofExpand
Evaluation of MicroRNA-146a and Its Targets in Gingival Tissues of Patients With Chronic Periodontitis.
BACKGROUND MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a group of small non-coding RNAs that play an important role in the regulation of gene expression. miRNA-146a (miR-146a), a member of the miR-146 family, is involvedExpand

Evaluation of Metallo-β-Lactamase-Production and Carriage of bla-VIM Genes in Pseudomonas aeruginosa Isolated from Burn Wound Infections in Isfahan
Background Metallo-β-lactamase-production among Gram-negative bacteria, including Pseudomonas aeruginosa, has become a challenge for treatment of infections due to these resistant bacteria.Expand
Immunoblot Assay in Determination of Serum Antibody Profile of Helicobacter Pylori Infec- tion
A high prevalence of antibody to cag A has been observed in H. pylori seropositive patients (HP + ) living in developed countries. This is felt to be correlated with the development of seriousExpand
Assessment of microRNA-146a in generalized aggressive periodontitis and its association with disease severity.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE MicroRNA-146a (miR-146a) is a small noncoding RNA that plays a critical role in the negative regulation of the innate immune response, and the dysregulation of miR-146a hasExpand
The Helicobacter pylori resistance rate to clarithromycin in Iran.
BACKGROUND Clarithromycin is the most commonly suggested antibiotic in Helicobacter pylori eradication regimens. Increasing antibiotic resistance rate to clarithromycin is the main reason forExpand
A study on the variations of temperature, moisture, pH and carbon to nitrogen ratio in producing compost by stack method
Background: Considering the importance of chemical and physical parameters such as temperature, moisture, pH and carbon to nitrogen (C:N) ratio in producing compost, the purpose of this study wasExpand
In Silico Design of a Chimeric Protein Containing Antigenic Fragments of Helicobacter pylori; A Bioinformatic Approach
Helicobacter pylori is a global health problem which has encouraged scientists to find new ways to diagnose, immunize and eradicate the H. pylori infection. In silico studies are a promising approachExpand
