There are controversial results related to the contribution of factor V Leiden G1691A, prothrombin gene G20210A and methylentetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) C677T mutations in the development of coronary artery disease (CAD) and their association with diabetes. To assess the distribution of these thrombophilic mutations in CAD patients with and without(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the frequency and the possible association between thrombophilic mutations of factor V Leiden (FVL) and prothrombin G20210A with preeclampsia among Kurdish population of Western Iran. We studied 198 women with preeclampsia including 128 women with mild and 70 women with severe forms and 101 healthy pregnant(More)
OBJECTIVES We aimed to investigate the association between methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) C677T and endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) G894T polymorphisms with lipid peroxidation, total antioxidant capacity (TAC) and the risk of preeclampsia in preeclamptic women. DESIGN AND METHODS We screened a sample of 198 unrelated women with mild(More)
The aim of present study was to determine if factor V Leiden (FVL) mutation and angiotensin converting enzyme insertion/deletion (ACE I/D) polymorphism are associated with diabetic nephropathy (DN) among Kurdish population from Western Iran. This case–control study comprised 144 unrelated adult type 2 diabetic mellitus patients (T2DM) including 72 patients(More)
BACKGROUND The etiology of preeclampsia remains obscure. To study the role of insulin resistance in preeclampsia, we compared fasting insulin and glucose changes during the second and third trimesters in preeclamptic women with a normal control group. PATIENTS AND METHODS In a nested case-control study, subjects were selected from a population-based(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare 2 different methods-multiple doses of misoprostol and a combination of misoprostol and oxytocin-for termination of pregnancy in the second trimester. METHODS Between 2006 and 2008, 120 women undergoing termination of second-trimester pregnancy in 2 hospitals in Kermanshah, Iran, were enrolled in a randomized trial comparing 2(More)
To determine the plasma lipid and lipoprotein profiles and their possible association with the type of β-thalassemia mutation we studied 103 major β-thalassemia patients including 71 children and 32 young adults compared to 102 healthy subjects consisted of 90 children and 12 young healthy adults. The plasma lipid and lipoprotein levels were measured by(More)
OBJECTIVE Sleep problems are common complaints among pregnant women. This study was designed to compare subjective sleep problems in non-pregnancy condition, healthy and preeclamptic pregnancy as a major complication of pregnancy. We hypothesized that some sleep problems are more prevalent in females with preeclampsia. METHODS In this cross-sectional(More)
The abnormal activation of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) during pregnancy might be involved in the pathogenesis of preeclampsia. The aim of present study was to investigate the possible influence of MMP-7 A-181G and its interaction with MMP-9 C- 1562T polymorphism on the risk of preeclampsia and lipid peroxidation level. In a case–control study the MMP-7(More)
