BACKGROUND Hydrogen sulfide (H(2)S) has been shown to display anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activities. AIM This study was designed to investigate the gastroprotective effect of sodium hydrosulfide (NaHS) on gastric mucosal lesions induced by ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury in rats and to determine the possible mechanism involved. METHODS(More)
Background. Renal ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) is one of the major causes of kidney failure, and it may interact with renin angiotensin system while angiotensin II (Ang II) type 2 receptor (AT2R) expression is gender dependent. We examined the role of AT2R blockade on vascular response to Ang II after I/R in rats. Methods. Male and female rats were subjected(More)
PURPOSE Caesarean delivery in the absence of any medical indications has become a major issue of concern among the women's health professionals. The patients' choice of caesarean is influenced by several factors predominating by their physicians' suggestion. Our objective was to examine factors that may affect the physicians' responses to patients(More)
Scripting has become an integral part of design work in Computer-Aided Design (CAD), especially with parametric systems. Designers who script face a very steep learning and use curve due to the new (to them) script notation and the loss of direct manipulation of the model. Programming In the Model (PIM) is a prototype parametric CAD system with a live(More)
BACKGROUND Pain, reduced grip strength, loss of range of motion, and joint stiffness, leading to impaired hand function, and difficulty with daily activities are documented symptoms of first carpometacarpal joint osteoarthritis. Splinting is a common type of conservative treatment for this injury. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate the(More)
Although the Discrete EVent System specification (DEVS) has over recent decades provided systems engineers with a scalable approach to modeling and simulation, the formalism has seen little uptake in many other disciplines where it could be equally useful. Our observations of end-user programmers confronted with DEVS theory or software suggest that learning(More)
Background: Renal ischemia/reperfusion injury (RIRI) is the most common cause of acute kidney injury. We tested the protective role of endothelin‑1 receptor blocker; bosentan (BOS) in animal model of RIRI in two different genders. Methods: Male and female Wistar rats were assigned as sham operated (sham), control group (ischemia), and case group (ischemia +(More)
Soil physical and chemical properties and some quantitative characteristics of Populus deltoides Marsh (clone 79.51) plantations and relationships between them were evaluated in Guilan plain of north of Iran. Two same aged poplar plantations with low and high qualities were selected. In each poplar plantation, fifteen sample plots with systematic sampling(More)
Programming in the model locates programming elements and tasks contiguous with computer aided design (CAD) models. It aims to reduce the separation between acts of programming, modeling and design, using both spatial coincidence to reduce task shifting and common CAD techniques to simplify the expression of code. Using techniques from visual programming,(More)
BACKGROUND Knee osteoarthritis is a musculoskeletal condition which is most prevalent in the medial compartment. This injury causes considerable pain, disability, and negative changes in kinetic and kinematic parameters. The efficiency of unloader valgus brace as a conservative treatment for medial knee osteoarthritis is not well documented. OBJECTIVES(More)
