خلاصه: Objective: This systematic review and meta-analysis was performed to determine the prevalence rate of influenza virus from different parts of Middle East region, and present an overall relative frequency (RF) for this region. Methods: The authors performed a systematic literature review from several reliable databases such as PubMed, ISI Web of Science and Scopus during 2000–2016. Furthermore, the keywords of this research were ‘Influenza’, ‘Subtype’, ‘Seroprevalence’, ‘Incidence’, ‘Seroepidemiology’, ‘H1N1’, ‘H3N2’, ‘H5N1’, ‘H9N2’, ‘Middle- East’ and ‘Meta-analysis’.

IRF7 gene expression profile and methylation of its promoter region in patients with systemic sclerosis

مولف: Ramazan REZAEI, 1, 2 Mahdi MAHMOUDI, 1 Farhad GHARIBDOOST, 1 Hoda KAVOSI, 1 Navid DASHTI, 1, 2 Vahideh IMENI, 1 Ahmadreza JAMSHIDI, 1 Saeed ASLANI, 1 Shayan MOSTAFAEI1 and Mohammad VODJGANI2

خلاصه: Objective: The aim of the current study was to evaluate if methylation status of CpG sites of interferon regulatory factor 7 (IRF7) promoter in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) of systemic sclerosis (SSc) patients is involved in pathogenesis of the disease. Methods: PBMCs were isolated from whole blood of 50 SSc patients and 30 controls. After the extraction of total RNA and DNA contents from PBMCs, complementary DNA (cDNA) was synthesized. Afterwards, quantitative analysis of ... سال انتشار: 2017
 

Downregulation of Aquaporin3 in Systemic Sclerosis Dermal Fibroblasts

مولف: Bahman Yousefi1, 2, Mahdi Mahmoudi1, Abdolfattah Sarafnejad2, Elham Karimizadeh1, Elham Farhadi3, Ahmad Reza Jamshidi1, Hoda Kavosi1, Saeed Aslani1, and Farhad Gharibdoost1

خلاصه: Skin dryness and thickening are hallmarks of systemic sclerosis (SSc) disease. Aquaporins (AQPs) are plasma membrane proteins that transport glycerol and water, resulting in water retention and skin hydration. Expression of AQPs has been evaluated in human normal skin. However, expression of these proteins in SSc dermal fibroblasts has not yet been reported. The aim of this study was to assess the expression profile of AQPs in dermal fibroblasts of ... سال انتشار: 2017

خلاصه: Introduction: Behcet’s Disease (BD) is classified among vasculitides. The aim of this review was to put together different known reports in order to help the reader to better understand the disease, to avoid the frequent misdiagnosis, and to decide the best treatment. Areas covered: a) Epidemiology: BD is rare, and is seen along the Silk Road, from 20 to 420/100,000 in Turkey and 80/100,000 in Iran, to 0.64/100,000 in the UK. b) Clinical manifestations: oral ... سال انتشار: 2017
 

Association Study of CD226 and CD247 Genes Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms in Iranian Patients with Systemic Sclerosis

مولف: Fatemeh Abbasi1, Reza Mansouri1, Farhad Gharibdoost2, Saeed Aslani2, Shayan Mostafaei2, Hoda Kavosi2, Shiva Poursani2, Soheila Sobhani2, and Mahdi Mahmoudi2

خلاصه: CD247 and CD226 play important roles in signaling of lymphocytes. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of genes encoding CD247 and CD226 have been associated with the risk of several autoimmune disorders. This study aimed to evaluate the possible association between CD226 and CD247 genes SNPs and risk of systemic sclerosis (SSc) in Iranian population. Study participants were 455 SSc patients and 455 age, sex, and ethnic -matched healthy individuals. Genotyping of rs2056626 ... سال انتشار: 2017
