BACKGROUND As a potent CD8(+) T cell activator, peptide vaccine has found its way in vaccine development against intracellular infections and cancer, but not against leishmaniasis. The first step toward a peptide vaccine is epitope mapping of different proteins according to the most frequent HLA types in a population. METHODS AND FINDINGS Six Leishmania(More)
Using the radiometric BACTEC 460-TB methodology, the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of a series of 2-(1-methyl-5-nitro-2-imidazolyl-1,3,4-thiadiazole-5-alkylsulfides, alkylsulfoxides and alkylsulfones which had been reported previously as antifungal agents, were determined. Active compounds were also screened by serial dilution to assess toxicity to(More)
AIM A porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) veneer crown restoration is considered successful when biological, mechanical, and esthetical concerns are satisfied. Restorations with poor marginal integrity may contribute to the cause of severe caries and periodontal defects. The most important factor in achieving successful marginal integrity is preparation design.(More)
BACKGROUND Breast cancer is the most common malignancy in women worldwide and its incidence is generally increasing. In 2012, it was the second most common cancer in the world. It is necessary to obtain information on incidence and mortality for health planning. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between the human development index (HDI), and(More)
INTRODUCTION Head and neck cancers are the sixth common cancer worldwide. It is necessary to inform the trend of incidence for health planning. This study aimed to investigate the trend of head and neck cancers in Iran. METHODS This study was carried out based on national report on cancer registry in Iran. The crude incidence rate was calculated as per(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine incidence and trend of the liver cancer in Iran. STUDY DESIGN An observational study. PLACE AND DURATION OF STUDY The Cancer Registry System in Iran, from 2003 to 2009. METHODOLOGY Crude incidence rate for liver cancer were calculated per 100,000 people. Age standardized incidence rates (ASRs) were estimated using direct(More)
The presence of heavy metals such as lead in drinking water resources can be dangerous for human because of toxicity and biological accumulation. The consumption of water or food which contains lead in high concentration can lead to prevent from Hemoglobin Synthesis (Anemia) and Kidney diseases. In this present study, the researcher collected 432 samples of(More)
BACKGROUND Kidney cancer has shown an increasing trend in recent decades. This study aimed to determine change in the incidence rate between 2003 and 2009 in Iran. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this study, national cancer registry data were used. Crude incidence rates were calculated per 100,000 and age-standardized incidence rates (ASRs) were computed using(More)
This article reports the results of a study of repeat entrepreneurs in Tehran, Iran, in which nonlocal intuition was investigated in a replication and extension of experiment using measures of heart rate variability (HRV). Nonlocal intuition is the perception of information about a distant or future event by the body's psychophysiological systems, which is(More)
The design, synthesis and antituberculosis activity of a series of 2-aryl-5-methylthio-1,3,4-thiadiazoles (5a-b), ethyl alpha-(5-aryl)-1,3,4-thiadiazole-2-ylthio)acetates (8a-b) and related compounds are described. All of the compounds were tested against Mycobacterium tuberculosis strain H37Rv in comparison to rifampicin. Six compounds exhibited a very(More)
