BACKGROUND School feeding programs are important interventions for improving the nutritional status of students. Therefore, this study was conducted to evaluate the effects of milk supplementation on physical, mental and school performance of students. METHODS This case-control population-based intervention was conducted on 469 students from 4 schools in(More)
Prostate cancer and benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) are heterogeneous disorders with a wide array of clinical presentations and high prevalence among men. Several protein coding genes as well as non-coding genes have been shown to contribute in prostate cancer and BPH risk. Among non-coding genes whose contribution in tumorigenesis has been identified is(More)
Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and its receptor kinase insert domain-containing receptor (KDR) pathway trigger the process of angiogenesis as well as inflammation, which contributes to the development and progression of demyelinating lesions in multiple sclerosis. This work is a case–control study comprising of a total of 400 subjects with(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o Cinema as an influential mass medium continuously represents different spaces, environments, events, and symbols, and through which it reproduces viewers' social reminiscence and merges imagination and reality in a constant manner.

Despite the improvements in cancer screening and treatment, it still remains as one of the leading causes of mortality worldwide. Nausea and vomiting as the side effects of different cancer treatment modalities, such as radiotherapy, are multifactorial and could affect the treatment continuation and patient quality of life. Therefore, the aim of this study(More)
AIM Prostate cancer and benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) are heterogeneous disorders with high prevalence among men. The antisense noncoding RNA in the INK4 locus codes for a long noncoding RNA whose participation in cancer has been elucidated. METHOD We analyzed rs1333045, rs4977574, rs1333048 and rs10757278 genotypes from this locus in 125 prostate(More)

Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) (MIM 209850) are a group of neurodevelopmental disorders distinguished by destructed social interaction and communication abilities along with peculiar repetitive behavior. Several genetic loci have been linked to this disorder. Vesicular monoamine transporter 1 (VMAT1/SLC18A1) is an attractive candidate gene for psychiatric(More)
