Abstract: Background: Gluten sensitive enteropathy (GSE) is an autoimmune enteropathy triggered by the ingestion of gluten-containing grains in susceptible individuals. Recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS) may be the sole manifestation of GSE. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of gluten sensitivity enteropathy (GSE) in a large group of patients with RAS and assess the efficacy of gluten free diet (GFD) on the improvement of aphthous lesions in those who were diagnosed with GSE. Methods: ... سال انتشار: 2009

Abstract: With the increasing life expectancy, osteoporosis is becoming a major worldwide health problem, more particularly in the Middle East region. Bone mineral density (BMD) of the hip, lumbar spine, and forearm was measured by dual X-ray absorptiometry (Lunar) in 2085 (25% men, 75% women) healthy Iranian subjects aged 20–88 yr. The prevalence of osteoporosis and osteopenia in at least one measured site in subjects aged 50 yr and older were 36.1% and 43.9% in women, and 24.5% and ... سال انتشار: 2009

Osteoporosis in these patients may be attributes to corticosteroid use, malnutrition and reduced intake of calcium and Vitamin D, lower levels of sex hormones, chronic inflammation and inflammatory cytokines. The aim of study was to compare bone mineral density (BMD) of femoral neck and lumbar spine in ulcerative colitis patients with age and sex ... سال انتشار: 2009

Authers: Farhad Zamani, Farhad Shahram, Ramin Shakeri, Habib Zayyeni, Fereydoun Davatchi, Afsaneh Amiri, Reza Malekzadeh

Abstract: Background Behcet’s disease and Celiac disease, both common in Iran, share many immunopathogenic and clinical features. Based on the possible association between these two diseases, this study is designed to determine the frequency of non-diagnosed celiac disease in patients with Behcet’s disease. Methods The sera of 288 consecutive patients with Behcet’s disease were screened with anti-endomysial antibody and anti-tissue transglutaminase antibody for celiac disease. Those with a positive test underwent upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and duodenal biopsies to confirm the diagnosis ... سال انتشار: 2008

Abstract: Introduction: Prolactin (PRL) is an immune stimulating hormone and may be important in the pathogenesis of some autoimmune diseases, such as SLE. This study was designed to detect the PRL level in patients with Behcet's disease (BD), and its relation to the different manifestations of the disease. Materials & Methods: Thirty-seven new male patients with BD and 29 age matched control normal individuals (CON) was selected as every consecutive patient. The ... سال انتشار: 1996
