Comparison of the RE and B1 gene for detection of Toxoplasma gondii infection in children with cancer.
TLDR
The results indicate that an RE-based nested PCR assay is more sensitive than B1 genomic target, of those tested, for detection of T. gondii. Expand
Occurrence of pathogenic Acanthamoeba genotypes in nasal swabs of cancer patients in Iran
TLDR
This is the first study on the typing of Acanthamoeba strains at the genotype level in cancer patients in Iran and worldwide and after sequencing, genotype T4 was found to be the most common one in the samples included in this study. Expand
Comparison of loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) and nested-PCR assay targeting the RE and B1 gene for detection of Toxoplasma gondii in blood samples of children with leukaemia.
TLDR
This is the first report of a study in which the LAMP method was applied with high sensitivity and efficacy for the diagnosis of T. gonii in blood samples of children with leukaemia. Expand
Presence of Balamuthia mandrillaris in hot springs from Mazandaran province, northern Iran
TLDR
This is the first report on the isolation of B. mandrillaris from hot-spring sources related to human activity and should be considered as a possible causative agent if cases of encephalitis are suspected following immersion in hot springs in addition to Acanthamoeba and Naegleria. Expand
Occurrence of Naegleria species in therapeutic geothermal water sources, Northern Iran
TLDR
Water samples were collected from 22 therapeutic hot springs, Northern Iran and investigated for the presence of Naegleria spp. Expand
Frequency of Cutaneous Leishmaniasis and Species Identification in Suspected Individuals from Golestan Province, Northern Iran in 2014
TLDR
Cutaneous leish maniasis has high prevalence in Kalaleh County, thus more studies on leishmaniasis in the animal reservoirs, comparison of homology of animal and human isolates and a survey regarding natural infection of vectors in this region is highly recommended. Expand
A Nuclear Magnetic Resonance-Based Metabolomic Study to Identify Metabolite Differences between Iranian Isolates of Leishmania major and Leishmania tropica
TLDR
Metabolomics, as an invaluable technique, yielded significant metabolites, and their biochemical pathways related to the metacyclic promastigotes of L. major and L. tropica, and offer greater insights into parasite biology and how pathogens adapt to their hosts. Expand
Anti-Leishmanial Effects of Chitosan-Polyethylene Oxide Nanofibers Containing Berberine: An Applied Model for Leishmania Wound Dressing
TLDR
The study on the cytotoxic effects showed that CS-PEO-berberine nanofibers had strong lethal effects on Leishmania major in promastigotes and amastigote stages in vitro, and further studies are required to investigate the effects of this nanofiber on leishmanial ulcers in laboratory animals and clinical cases. Expand
Immunodiagnosis and molecular validation of Toxoplasma gondii-recombinant dense granular (GRA) 7 protein for the detection of toxoplasmosis in patients with cancer.
TLDR
Findings of the present study showed that rGRA7 can be used as a potential immunogenic antigen for developing immunodiagnostic tools for Immunodiagnosis of toxoplasmosis in patients including patients with cancer. Expand
Genotyping of Toxoplasma gondii Strains Isolated from Patients with Ocular Toxoplasmosis in Iran
TLDR
Genotype T. gondii, particularly its type III should not be neglected as a cause of retinochoroiditis, and all of isolated strains belong to type III genotype. Expand
