To date, over 1340 gene therapy clinical trials have been completed, are ongoing or have been approved worldwide. In 1997 we set up a database to bring together global information on gene therapy clinical trials as comprehensively as possible. The data are compiled and regularly updated from official agency sources, published literature, conference(More)
To date, over 1800 gene therapy clinical trials have been completed, are ongoing or have been approved worldwide. Our database brings together global information on gene therapy clinical trials from official agency sources, published literature, conference presentations and posters kindly provided to us by individual investigators or trial sponsors.

In 1989, Rosenberg et al. performed the first human gene therapy trial when they used a retrovirus to introduce the gene coding for resistance to neomycin into human tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes before infusing them into five patients with advanced melanoma. This study demonstrated the feasibility of using retroviral gene transduction in humans and set(More)
Previous research has provided evidence on the effectiveness of CBT in the symptomatic improvement of children with obsessive–compulsive disorders. There is also increasing recognition of the importance of involving parents and families in treatment. The aim of this study was to evaluate the short-term effectiveness of such an intervention that promoted(More)
The aim of the present study was to examine the internal reliability, content validity, construct validity, and concurrent validity of the Persian translation/Farsi version of the Oxford Happiness Inventory. The Oxford Happiness Inventory and Fordyce Happiness Inventory were completed by a sample of 727 Iranian university students. Findings confirmed the(More)
Depression and fatigue are common symptoms of multiple sclerosis (MS) and are the primary determinants of impaired quality of life in this demyelinating neurological disease. Untreated depression is associated with suicidal ideation, impaired cognitive function and poor adherence to immunomodulatory treatment. For these reasons, systematic screening and(More)
In this paper, we consider the problem of resource allocation for secure communications in decode-and-forward (DF) relay-assisted Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) networks. In our setting, users want to securely communicate to the base station (BS) with the help of a set of relay stations (RSs) in the presence of multiple eavesdroppers.(More)
This paper studies a robust resource allocation framework to enhance physical layer security where it is assumed that the system is equipped with a full-duplex (FD) receiver in contrast to conventional frameworks where a half-duplex (HD) receiver is at hand. Conventionally, relays are used as jammer to reduce the signal quality received by the eavesdroppers(More)
In this paper, the effect of channel distribution information (CDI) imperfectness on the performance of wireless networks is investigated. In the literature, ergodic resource allocation problems are solved assuming that perfect CDI is available which might not be a practical assumption. Therefore, we adopt the nonparametric density estimation methods for(More)
