OBJECTIVE Phototherapy is the standard therapeutic approach for neonatal hyperbilirubinemia. Oxidative effects of phototherapy may have potential harms, including DNA damage. Unconjugated bilirubin (UCB) might also possess antigenotoxic potential. Intensive phototherapy is more efficacious than conventional phototherapy in treating hyperbilirubinemia. This(More)
BACKGROUND Egypt has a high prevalence of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. Limitations of the current HCV treatment in children are low rate of sustained virological response, significant side effects and high expenses, making prediction of treatment response crucial. AIM This study aimed to investigate association of single nucleotide polymorphisms(More)
This study aimed at evaluating possible associations of the single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in luteinizing hormone/choriogonadotropin receptor (LHCGR) gene G935A and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) phenotype. The study included 100 PCOS female patients and 60 healthy female control subjects. The patients were recruited from the Gynecology out-patient(More)
We investigated the association of the Osteopontin (OPN) (rs9138 and rs1126616) polymorphisms with colorectal cancer (CRC). One hundred CRC patients and 112 healthy individuals were subjected to OPN (rs9138 and rs1126616) genotyping and measurement of OPN protein plasma level. The C allele of OPN rs1126616 and the CC haplotype were significantly higher in(More)
Tumor necrosis factor related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) plays an important role in many cancers including hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The aim of this study is to investigate the association of the DR4 polymorphisms C626G (Thr209Arg, rs20575) and A683C (Glu228Ala, rs20576) with the occurrence of HCC in Egyptian patients chronically infected with(More)
The present study aimed at evaluating the role of IL-1β −511 promoter and IL-1β +3953 exon 5 gene polymorphisms in the risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and its correlation to disease activity in Egyptian patients. Thirty-two patients having RA as defined by American College of Rheumatology and 20 healthy control subjects were included. All were(More)
