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 Epidemiology of cervical spine fractures (CSfx) in trauma patients of general population is not yet exclusively known. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to evaluate the epidemiology of CSfx in trauma patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS Data from trauma patients admitted in the emergency room (ER) of Shiraz Shahid Rajaei hospital during the(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 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: 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)

This paper focuses on the shortcomings of the existing power management system and proposes an alternate methodology to achieve quick and efficient power restoration. Various restoration algorithms and technologies such as Q-learning, clustering algorithm and decision trees are discussed in this paper. Two way communication mechanism (ICT) is implemented(More)
Peptic ulcer disease (PUD) is a common illness, affecting a considerable number of people world-wide, and its occurrence can be influenced by environmental and genetic factors. Heat shock proteins (HSPs) function mostly as molecular chaperones, and are induced by various stresses. The A to G transition at position 1267 of the HSPA1B gene was shown to(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)
