BACKGROUND/AIMS Oxidative stress and hepatocellular pathological changes are common associations with chronic hepatitis C virus (CHC) disease. The aim of this study was to assess serum antioxidant-oxidant (Redox) balance in patients with CHC infection before and after intake of the traditional antiviral therapy (pegylated interferon α-2b and oral(More)
Polymorphisms in antioxidant enzymes and innate immune receptors have been implicated in the development of various types of cancer. The present study aimed to investigate whether polymorphisms of glutathione S-transferase π 1 (GSTP1) and toll-like receptors (TLRs) 2 and 9 are associated with susceptibility to breast cancer among females. The study was(More)
In recent decades, fluoroquinolones have been broadly used to treat health care-associated Gram-negative bacterial infections. Ciprofloxacin is the most commonly used fluoroquinolone for treatment of UTIs as it exists in oral and intravenous preparations (Schaeffer, 2002). However, resistance to fluoroquinolones has become prevalent due to this widespread(More)
Vancomycin heteroresistance in coagulase negative Staphylococci (CoNS) is a recent health concern especially in serious infections like bloodstream infections as it may lead to failure of therapy. Little information is available about the prevalence vancomycin heteroresistance in CoNS causing bloodstream infections in intensive care units (ICUs) patients of(More)
OBJECTIVES To study the effect of silver nanoparticles incorporation to glass ionomer cement (GIC) on the Staphylococcus aureus biofilm in terms of bacterial growth and evaluate the incorporating effect on hardness and compressive strength. METHODS Silver nanopowder was added in concentration 0, 1, 3, and 5 wt% to the conventional powder of GIC Fuji IX GP(More)
AIM To assess the serum levels of soluble toll-like receptor (sTLR2) as an endogenous negative regulator of TLR2 signaling in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients, to investigate the correlation between sTLR2 and SLE disease activity index (SELDAI), SLE-related cardiovascular risk factors and ventricular dysfunction and to evaluate the effect of(More)
