OBJECTIVES This study sought to determine whether procedural factors during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) are associated with the occurrence of ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attack (PCI-stroke). BACKGROUND Stroke is a devastating complication of PCI. Demographic predictors are nonmodifiable. Whether PCI-stroke is associated with(More)
Nephrotoxicity of organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) has been established in experimental animal models. This study was designed to evaluate the relationship of the blood OCPs level with the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and oxidative stress (OS) in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. Patients in different stages of CKD (n = 150) and age, sex(More)
The present study was performed to examine the effect of Eugenia caryophyllata (Myrtaceae) on learning and memory, and also evaluate whether it can modulate oxidative stress in mice. Passive avoidance step-down task and elevated plus-maze were used to assess learning and memory in scopolamine-treated mice. Oxidative stress parameters were also assessed in(More)
PURPOSE To report a case of Candida albicans endophthalmitis with no identifiable predisposing risk factors. CASE REPORT A 57-year-old male presented with a 3-day history of worsening floaters and reduced visual acuity. Fundoscopy and optical coherence tomography showed presence of fluffy white preretinal and intraretinal infiltrates. With no past medical(More)
BACKGROUND Seasonal/perennial allergic conjunctivitis is the most common allergic conjunctivitis, usually with acute manifestations when a person is exposed to allergens and with typical signs and symptoms including itching, redness, and tearing. The clinical signs and symptoms of allergic conjunctivitis are mediated by the release of histamine by mast(More)
BACKGROUND Heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein (hnRNP) A2/B1 is a target for antinuclear autoantibodies in systemic Lupus erythematosus (SLE), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and autoimmune hepatitis (AIH). AIM To monitor molecular interactions between peptides spanning the entire sequence of hnRNP A2/B1 and sera from patients and healthy controls. (More)
Lymphoid tissue inducer cells (LTi) play an important role in the development of lymphoid tissue in embryos. Adult CD4(+)CD3(-) LTi-like cells present a similar phenotype and gene expression to their embryonic counterpart and have important roles in CD4(+) T-cell memory and lymphoid tissue recovery following viral infection. However, adult LTi-like cells(More)
The challenging diagnosis and poor prognosis of cholangiocarcinoma require the determination of biomarkers. Autoantibodies could be used in the clinic as diagnostic markers for the early detection of tumours. By proteomic approaches, several autoantibodies were proposed as potential markers. We tried in this study, to perform a serological proteome(More)
BACKGROUND Ovarian cancer is the 5th most common cause of deaths in the women among gynecological tumors. There are many growing evidences that stress and other behavioral factors may affect cancer progression and patient survival. The purpose of this study is to determine the key role of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), and cytokines in the aggregation(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a group of heterogeneous abnormalities affecting the function and structure of the kidney and mostly further proceeds to cardiovascular damage prior to end stage renal disease (ESRD). The oxidative insult and inflammatory mediators have some undefined role in CKD and cardiovascular complications. It is therefore,(More)
