Association of HLA-DR alleles with pulmonary cystic fibrosis

Conclusions: DR4 and DR11, which recognize the gene products of the HLA-DR B1 alleles, are the most prominent in the Iranian CF population and further research on should be conducted on DR4+ CF patients to understand the role in clinical phenotypes of CF.

Abstract The use of live attenuated vaccine (LAV) is the main method for controlling infectious bronchitis (IB). It is advisable to develop a LAV using a dominant serotype in the region in the case of vaccine failure. Since 793/B serotype is one of the most predominant circulating IB viruses in Iran, attenuation of three Iranian 793/B isolates (IR/773/2001, IR/794/2002 and IR/520/2002) was done by serial passaging in specific pathogen free (SPF) embryonated chicken eggs up to 90 passages to assess the degree of their attenuation to achieve a native LAV in the future. Virulence and pathogenicity of passage levels 1...

This article considers the relevance of non-representational theory to understanding the lived experience of diabetes. While non-representational theory has gained traction in the social sciences, especially Human Geography, its usefulness in extending understanding of experiences of health and illness is often restricted to an idea of wellbeing that assumes an able and healthy body. This article draws on qualitative research on the everyday experiences of living with diabetes, to consider how non-representational theory can be applied to understanding the everyday experience of ill bodies. The analysis moves through ideas...

Conclusions: The lamellar dissection technique has a similar rate of ECL compared with the peeling technique for DMEK graft preparation. This technique also has a low rate of graft preparation failure and may be a useful technique for diabetic donor tissue.

Conclusions: Optimal efficacy of amphotericin B against C. albicans is achieved in cold storage conditions at concentrations ≥1.25 μg/mL, and 2.5 μg/mL reduces Candida contamination by>90% after 6 hours of cold storage without sacrificing CEC health.

ConclusionThe lack of conclusive evidence on polyphenol effectiveness in the management of cardio-metabolic risk factors does not allow to recommend their use as supplements to reduce T2D and CVD risk. However, the daily consumption of naturally polyphenol-rich foods and beverages might be advised according to the current nutritional dietary recommendation.
