This study aimed to evaluate the role of Anti-Cyclic Citrullinated Peptide (anti-CCP) antibody in comparison to Cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMP) in Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) patients as predictors of the disease activity and cartilage destruction. The study included 60 patients &10 apparently healthy subjects. They were divided into 4 groups.(More)
This work aimed to compare nested PCR using novel primers targeting the pan-dermatophyte-specific sequence of the chitin synthase 1 gene (CHS1) with KOH microscopy and culture isolation for diagnosis of clinically suspected onychomycosis. This study was conducted during the period from December, 2012 to October 2013. Forty patients attending Outpatient(More)
Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP) is a severe complication in cirrhotics with ascites. Monocyte chemotactic protien-1 (MCP-1) is a chemotactic factor for monocytes/macrophages, and it activates lymphocytes and neutrophils during infection. This study aimed to evaluate the role of MPC-1 in the pathogenesis of SBP and assess its prognostic value and(More)
Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) the most common chronic arthropathy of childhood is a diverse group of chronic arthritis diseases. The protein tyrosine phosphatase N22 (PTPN22) gene exhibits regulatory activities for both T and B cells. This study aimed to study PTPN gene polymorphism in JIA. The study included 60 children with JIA and 40 age and sex(More)
Type 1 diabetes is one of the most common chronic childhood illnesses. Interplay between genetic susceptibility and environmental factors is thought to provide the fundamental element for the disease. It has been shown that more than 40 genetic loci are associated with T1DM. Important one among these is the CTLA-4. This work aimed to detect Cytotoxic T(More)
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a multisystem autoimmune connective tissue disorder characterized by loss of self-tolerance causing immune-mediated tissue destruction and various clinical presentations. Cytokine-mediated immunity involved in the pathogenesis of SLE. Recently, IL-23 was proposed to play a crucial role in mediating tissue inflammation(More)
