INTRODUCTION HPV infection has a prime etiologic role in development and progression of cervical cancer, one of the most frequent forms of cancer among women in developing countries. This study was designed to determine the most prevalent HPV genotypes in women with normal and abnormal cervical cytology in Iran. MATERIALS AND METHODS Samples from134(More)
AIMS Hereditary Diffuse Gastric Cancer (HDGC) is a dominantly inherited familial cancer syndrome resulting from germline mutations of the E-cadherin (CDH1) gene. The first Iranian family with HDGC is herein reported. METHODS The family fulfilled the International Gastric Cancer Linkage Consortium (IGCLC) criteria for HDGC. The entire coding region of the(More)
INTRODUCTION Her2/neu is a biomarker which is amplified and/or overexpressed in a subset of breast cancer patients who are eligible to receive trastuzumab. Her-2 gene amplification analysed by fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH) and/or protein over-expression detected by immunohistochemistry (IHC) are the two main methods used to detect Her-2 status(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES Analysis of the role of different alleles of human leukocyte antigen (HLA) in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients is necessary in many populations and geographical areas. The aim of the present study was to investigate the frequency of HLA-DRB1 genes and its influence on susceptibility to MS, comparing with that in control group. (More)
INTRODUCTION As many as 30% of node-negative breast cancer patients relapse within five years, suggesting that current histological detection methods are inadequate for identifying metastatic disease. Detecting small number of cancer cells in the breast tissue or lymph node by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) assays using a(More)
INTRODUCTION Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in women; however, due to the complexity of chromosomal changes, limited data are available regarding chromosomal constitution. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this study, Comparative Genomic Hybridization (CGH) was used on 16 Iranian patients diagnosed with invasive ductal breast carcinomas. RESULTS(More)
OBJECTIVE To isolate and construct a cloning vector containing the human papillomavirus (HPV)16-E7 gene as a target for application as a DNA vaccine. METHODS The study was performed in 2005 in Iran. The E7 gene, one of the most important HPV oncoproteins and a target molecule for therapeutic vaccines, was amplified by polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The(More)
BACKGROUND Exposure to endogenous hormones such as estrogen is known as a lifetime Breast Cancer (BC) risk factor. Polymorphisms in genes that are involved in the steroidogenic process, such as Cytochrome P450c17alpha (CYP17), affect individuals' susceptibility to BC. In Iran, the highest incident of BC is among young women. This study aimed to find(More)
