OBJECTIVE Iron and vitamin A deficiencies are among the most prevalent nutritional problems. There are no data on iron bioavailability in Iran. In addition, interaction of vitamin A with iron bioavailability is not well documented, so we determined iron bioavailability from the most widely consumed food in Iran, lavash bread, and the effect of vitamin A on(More)
In this study, we investigated the effects of genistein, daidzein, and soy protein on paraoxonase and arylesterase activity, malondialdehyde (MDA) levels, and lipid profiles of arthritic rats in vivo and the results were compared with that of dexamethasone. Seventy-two female Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into six groups: healthy control, animals with(More)
OBJECTIVE The effects of Ramadan fasting, with low fat and low calorie diet, on blood lipid and lipoprotein levels were studied. Results revealed reduction of plasma lipid levels and anthropometric parameters in the hyperlipidemic cases. To find out whether such reductions were due to nutritional diet or Ramadan fasting, we conducted a study to evaluate(More)
OBJECTIVE Although there is some evidence indicative of some beneficial effects of an increased meal frequency on the lipid profiles, the results published are controversial. The aim of the present study is to investigate the effects of feeding frequency on blood lipids, glucose and insulin. METHODS The subjects of this study were 15 healthy non-smoker(More)
INTRODUCTION Recent epidemiological evidence suggests that alteration in calcium, phosphorous or magnesium metabolism may have direct cardiovascular consequences. However, it is unknown whether variations in serum values of these minerals are in relationship with lipid profile and adiposity as metabolic risk factors of cardiovascular events in premenopausal(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Increased production of reactive oxygen species secondary to phagocyte respiratory burst occurs in pulmonary tuberculosis (TB). The present study evaluated the efficacy of vitamin E-selenium supplementation on oxidative stress in newly diagnosed patients treated for pulmonary TB. METHODS A double-blind, placebo-controlled trial(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the effect of vitamin D injection on Serum Magnesium concentration in obese and non obese women. METHOD This Interventional study was performed on 82 women (17-50 years) which were randomly selected from general population of Tabriz city. They were assigned into two experimental groups. Obese group with stage 1 and 2 obesity and non(More)
To evaluate preventive and therapeutic effects of soy protein on collagen-induced arthritis rats. Sprague–Dawley rats immunized with bovine type II collagen emulsified in adjuvant and treated with soy protein (7 g/kg), dexamethasone (1 mg/kg), and casein (in control groups) by daily gavages feedings for 30 days. Score of arthritis recorded every day for(More)
BACKGROUND Food insecurity is frequent in both developed and developing countries, affecting from 5% to 25% of the general population. It has considerable health impacts on the physical, social, and psychological status of individuals in communities suffering from food insecurity. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to document the epidemiologic features(More)
A novel nanobiopolymer film was electrodeposited on the surface of glassy carbon through cyclic voltammetry from dopamine, β-cyclodextrin, and phosphate buffer solution in physiological pH (7.40). The electrochemical behavior of polydopamine-Beta-cyclodextrin modified glassy carbon electrode was investigated for electro-oxidation and determination of some(More)
