CONTEXT Schizophrenia is the collective term for a heterogeneous group of mental disorders with a still obscure biological basis. In particular, the specific contribution of risk or candidate gene variants to the complex schizophrenic phenotype is largely unknown. OBJECTIVE To prepare the ground for a novel "phenomics" approach, a unique schizophrenia(More)
BACKGROUND Despite high prevalence of diabetic peripheral neuropathy there is no definite treatment for the condition. The present study was conducted to assess the efficacy of transdermal nitroglycerin patch in pain control of patients with DPN. METHODS This randomized, double-blind, crossover study was conducted on 30 patients with symmetric distal(More)
BACKGROUND Hepatitis B virus (HBV) as an infectious disease that has nine genotypes (A - I) and a 'putative' genotype J. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to identify the rare codon clusters (RCC) in the HBV genome and to evaluate these RCCs in the HBV proteins structure. METHODS For detection of protein family accession numbers (Pfam) in HBV(More)
BACKGROUND The hepatitis C virus (HCV) has six major genotypes. The purpose of this study was to phylogenetically investigate the differences between the genotypes of HCV, and to determine the types of amino acid codon usage in the structure of the virus in order to discover new methods for treatment regimes. METHODS The codon usage of the six genotypes(More)
BACKGROUND Heart failure is a prevalent disease affecting about 4.9 million people in the U.S. and more than 22 million individuals worldwide. Using electric pacemaker is the most common treatment for the patients with heart conduction problems. The present study aimed to determine the factors affecting survival in the patients undergoing pacemaker(More)
BACKGROUND The main objective of this experiment was optimal use of none edible protein source to increase nutritional value of production with high biological function, including antioxidant activity. METHODS Sheep visceral (stomach and intestine) was used as substrate. Response surface methodology (RSM) was used to optimize hydrolysis conditions for(More)
This paper has been attempted to compare the effect of market sale and contract strategies on yield, using a 90 survey data from tomato farmers in Khorasan-Razavi province, Iran on 2007 and applying the game theory approach. The results showed that the effect of no-contract strategy with tomato processing factories is more than contracted strategy on tomato(More)
In the structure of the title salt C(12)H(11)N(2)S(+)·I(-), the methyl-sulfanyl group of the cation is nearly coplanar with the perimidine rings, as indicated by the C-S-C-N torsion angles of 2.9 (5) and -177.2 (3)°, respectively. The (S)C-N bond lengths in the heterocyclic ring are approximately equal [1.325 (5) and 1.326 (6) Å] suggesting a degree of(More)
In the title mol-ecule, C(10)H(16)O(3)S(4), a short intra-molecular S⋯O(=C) distance [2.726 (2) Å] indicates the presence of a nonbonding attractive inter-action. In the crystal, mol-ecules are linked into centrosymmetric dimers via weak inter-molecular C-H⋯O and S⋯S [3.405 (3) Å] inter-actions. These dimers are linked by further weak C-H⋯O inter-actions(More)
Background: Neuroendoscopic system is the best choice for detection and assessment of intracranial cysts and intraventricular tumors and cysts. There are some reasons and features for neuroendoscopy to be the number-one option for these dysfunctions such as entrapment of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) inside the arachnoid cysts, location of intraventricular(More)
