OBJECTIVE To investigate whether miRNA-499 (rs3746444) and miRNA-146a (rs2910164) genes polymorphisms are independent factors for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in Egyptians, and whether they influence disease severity and activity. METHODS Two hundred and seventeen RA patients and 245 healthy controls were enrolled in this study. Polymorphisms of miRNA-146a(More)
AIMS Cyclooxygenase 2 (COX-2) with the resulting prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) is linked to increased risk of human breast cancer (BC). The aim of this study was to determine COX-2 169C>G and 8473T>C gene polymorphisms and PGE2 level at various stages of BC clarifying the role of COX-2 gene polymorphism and PGE2 in relation to BC. METHODS The study population(More)
Obesity, insulin resistance, and hyperandrogenism are considered crucial parameters of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) which might be related to vitamin D metabolism. The aim of this study was to investigate the associations between polymorphisms (TaqI and ApaI) in the vitamin D receptor gene (VDR) and PCOS among Egyptian women. We aimed also to elucidate(More)
SciTech Kids presents a case study of our workshops that integrate art into our STEM curriculum and introduce young children to the basics of electronics and technology. SciTech Kids Electronic Art (SKEA) is a crafts-based, hands-on approach that allows participants to tinker and produce interactive electronic objects. The SKEA workshops provide a new way(More)
Four design alternatives for lateral force-resisting systems of tall buildings in Dubai, UAE are presented. Quantitative comparisons between the different designs are also made. This paper is intended to provide different feasible lateral systems to be used in Dubai in light of the available seismic hazard studies of the UAE. The different lateral systems(More)
