There are a paucity and contradicted data about the impact of concurrent heredity of polymorphic genes and risk of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). In the present study, the concurrent effects of three polymorphisms affecting the integrity of DNA consist of ABCB1 C3435T, ABCG2 C421A, and XRCC1 Arg194Trp on development of chronic myeloid leukemia were(More)
BACKGROUND Finding a suitable marker with high sensitivity and specificity for early diagnosis of cancer is very desirable. This study was aimed to determine the diagnostic value of serum CYFRA21-1, carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), and neuron-specific enolase (NSE) for screening of lung cancer patients in western Iran. METHODS This descriptive analytical(More)
Methods for assaying lysosomal diseases in dried blood samples are very useful today due to its several advantages related to the stability of samples, its transportation, handled and analysis, and its potential use for newborn screening compared to traditional methods in leucocytes samples. For this reason, it is important to validate these assays before(More)
AIMS Given the growing rate of patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus, uncovering the effects of gene polymorphism on diabetes pathogenesis has attracted a lot of attention. Because glucose transporter 1 is involved in glucose uptake, the polymorphism of this gene may be an important risk factor in type 2 diabetes mellitus or in the progression of diabetes(More)
OBJECTIVE The first line-screening test for mucopolysaccharidosis is based on measurement of urinary glycosaminoglycans. The most reliable test for measurement of urine glycosaminoglycans is the 1,9-dimethyleneblue colorimetric assay. Biological markers are affected by ethnical factors, for this reason, the World Health Organization recommends that the(More)
BACKGROUND Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is one of the most important complications of diabetes mellitus. Now-a-days, cystatin C (CysC) is introduced as a new marker for diagnosis of renal damages; however, use of this marker in clinical laboratories is still controversial. The present study was aimed to evaluate the diagnostic value of serum CysC for early(More)
