BACKGROUND Nitric oxide (NO) and its toxic product peroxynitrite contribute to oxidative stress and neurodegeneration in Parkinson's disease (PD). The relationship of serum levels of these oxidants with the severity of the disease [evaluated by the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS)] is not established. AIM This study was designed to(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the pattern as well as associated factors of moderate and major potential drug-drug interactions (PDDIs) in both the pre- and early post-transplantation stages at a referral hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) center. All adolescents and adults undergone HSCT within a 3-year period were screened(More)
BACKGROUND Tuberculosis (TB) has been a common chronic infectious disease in human communities. Besides disease-related complications, there could be serious adverse reactions due to anti-tuberculosis (anti-TB) drug therapy. OBJECTIVES To assess the incidence and severity of adverse drug reactions (ADRs) induced by anti-TB drugs. To determine possible(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of oral zinc sulfate in the prevention of chemotherapy-induced mucositis in patients undergoing hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation (HSCT). This study was a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled design, with 60 patients undergoing HSCT, divided proportionally in experimental group who received(More)
BACKGROUND The reporting of adverse drug reactions (ADRs) by nurses in hospitals is very important. AIMS This study was aimed at investigating the impact of an educational intervention to improve ADR reporting and whether trained nurses had better knowledge, attitude, and practice toward ADR reporting. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 300 nurses in a(More)
Low plasma level of vitamin D is linked to the increased risk of cardiovascular diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, dyslipidemia and peripheral vascular diseases. Vitamin D deficiency is a worldwide problem that involves Iranian population. To the best of our knowledge, this was the first investigation on venous thromboembolism (VTE) subjects that(More)
Background. Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune inflammatory disease of central nervous system (CNS). MS affects quality of Life (QOL) due to physical disability and other associated problems. Disease-modifying agents like interferon beta (IFNB) have been widely utilized in this patient population; however, their frequency, route of administration,(More)
Oral mucositis (OM) is a complication of high-dose chemotherapy (HDC) which is frequently observed in hematopoietic SCT settings. Antioxidant agents have been proposed to prevent OM and therefore N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) could have an important role. In the present study, we conducted a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the NAC(More)
OBJECTIVE Adverse drug reactions (ADRs) are known as a cause of hospital admission. We have carried out a prospective study to characterize and assess the frequency, probability, preventability, and severity of ADRs, which lead to hospital admission in children. METHODS In a prospective observational study, a cohort of children admitted to a tertiary(More)
Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is being used increasingly in an attempt to cure many hematological disorders. Obesity has become a world wide phenomenon and is a known risk factor for numerous medical conditions, but its role in transplant outcomes remained controversial. Total of 192 patients with acute leukemia who underwent sibling HLA(More)
