The effect of hydroxyapatite nanoparticles (HA NPs) contents on the antibacterial activity, physical, and mechanical properties of sodium alginate (SA) film was scrutinized. The samples were prepared via incorporation of three different concentrations of HA NPs (1%, 3%, and 5%) into alginate solution at ambient temperature. In all SA/HA matrices, HA NPs demonstrated considerable bactericidal activity against foodborne pathogen during 12 days. The highest antibacterial effect of SA film was obtained in the presence of 5%HA NPs content and showed 3 CFU/mg reduction...

In this study, the compositions of transgenic potatoes (TPs) resistant to potato tuber moth (Phthorimaea operculella) were compared with those of its non-transgenic (NTP) counterparts. The light inducible promoter, phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase led to the expression of Cry1Ab only in the leaves and light-treated tubers of the TPs. No significant differences were found in the moisture, ash, dry weight, total soluble protein, carbohydrate, starch, fiber, ascorbate, cations, anions, fatty acids, and glycoalkaloids contents of TP and NTP...

Introduction: A successful endodontic treatment depends on a comprehensive knowledge of the morphology of canal and its variations, an appropriate access cavity, proper cleaning and shaping and adequate root canal filling. The present study was carried out to evaluate the root canal morphology of permanent maxillary first molars in an Iranian population. Methods and Materials: In this in vitro study, 80 extracted permanent maxillary first molars from a population in Rafsanjan, Iran were collected...

Background: Ephedrine was conventionally regarded as the first-choice drug to maintain maternal blood pressure during spinal anesthesia for cesarean delivery, due to its stimulant activity on α- and β-adrenergic receptors. Norepinephrine is a weak β-adrenergic and potent α-adrenergic receptor agonist. Therefore, it may be suitable for maintaining blood pressure with less chronotropic effects compared to ephedrine. Patients and Methods: One hundred and forty healthy patients having cesarean delivery under spinal anesthesia were randomized to Group N ( n = 61) who received a prophylactic bolus of norepinephrine 5 μg intravenous (i...

Clinical diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease (AD) prior to the age of 65 years is classified as young-onset (YOAD), whereas diagnosis after the age of 65 years is considered late-onset (LOAD). Although rare autosomal mutations more commonly associate with YOAD, most YOAD and LOAD cases are sporadic. YOAD and LOAD share amyloid and tau pathology, but many YOAD patients show increased disease severity and rate of progression. The current study examined the microRNA (miRNA) expression profile from exosomes isolated from the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of YOAD patients with biomarker-confirmed AD...

Aim: Until now, identification of drug targets for treatment of patients with specific stages of colorectal cancer (CRC) has remained a challenging field of research. Herein, we aimed to identify the key genes and regulatory networks involved in each stage of CRC. Results: The results of gene expression profiles were integrated with protein-protein interaction networks, and topologically analyzed. The most important regulatory genes (e.g., CDK1 , UBC , ESR1 and ATXN1 ) and signaling pathways (e...

Pancreatic tissue engineering as a therapeutic option for restoring and maintenance of damaged pancreas function has a special focus to using synthetic Scaffolds. This study was designed to evaluate pancreatic differentiation of human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) on poly-L-lactic acid and polyvinyl alcohol (PLLA/PVA) scaffolds as 3 D matrix. During differentiation process, morphology of cells gradually changed and iPSCs derived insulin producing cells (iPSCs-IPCs) formed spherical shaped cell aggregation that was the typical shape of islets of pancreas...

Liver as an essential organ has an important function in metabolism and waste secretion from the body. Disorders of this organ may caused by several reasons such as high alcoholic consumption, various chemical or microbial agents and various hepatic cancers. Reactive and oxidative stress and oxygen species (ROS) are introduced the main mechanisms of these hepatic injuries. The seeds of Nigella sativa (Family Ranunculaceae) which is known as black seed, is widely used as a medicinal herb for cure or prevention of many of diseases such as liver problems...

BACKGROUND: Women of reproductive age with differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) often need radioactive iodine (RAI) treatment after surgery. In contrast to the well-documented effect of RAI on testicular function, the potential negative effects of this treatment on ovarian reserve have been largely dismissed. The objective of this pilot study was to examine the possibility that RAI treatment is deleterious to the ovarian reserve by prospectively measuring the concentration of anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) after RAI treatment...

In 2012, an academic medical center successfully overhauled a 15-year-old shared governance to align 6 house-wide and 30 unit-based councils with the new Magnet Recognition Program® and the organization's operating system, using the processes of LEAN methodology. The redesign improved cross-council communication structures, facilitated effective shared decision-making processes, increased staff engagement, and improved clinical outcomes. The innovative structural and process elements of the new model are replicable in other health institutions...

Intra-ventricular flow dynamics has recently emerged as an important evaluation and diagnosis tool in different cardiovascular conditions. The formation of vortex pattern during the cardiac cycle has been suggested to play important epigenetic and energy-modulation roles in cardiac remodelling, adaptations and mal-adaptations. In this new perspective, flow alterations due to different cardiovascular procedures can affect the long-term outcome of those procedures. Especially, repairs and replacements performed on atrioventricular valves are likely to exert direct impact on intra-ventricular flow pattern...

The immunomodulatory properties of Nigella sativa seed, as a basis of its clinical applications by many cultures have been reviewed. Thymoquinone (TQ) is one of the major bioactive component of the volatile oil of N. sativa seeds. The present investigations provide a comprehensive review of the ability of TQ to modulate inflammation and immune-related disorders in the various important disease states. This finding showed that TQ has the anti-inflammatory properties that prevents the biosynthesis of important mediators in inflammatory processes and asthma such as 5-LO, COX, PGD2 and LTs...

Transplantation of islet is a promising method in treatment of patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM), however, is limited by islet shortage. The aim of this study was to prepare a polyethersulfone (PES) nanofibrous scaffolds to evaluate the pancreatic differentiation of human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs). The differentiation process in tissue culture dishes and PES scaffolds was evaluated at mRNA and protein level by RT-qPCR and immunofluorescence assay, respectively. The functionality of differentiated cells was determined by insulin and C-peptide release in response to glucose challenges...

MicroRNAs (miRNAs), critical biomarkers of acute and chronic diseases, play key regulatory roles in many biological processes. As a result, robust assay platforms to enable an accurate and efficient detection of low-level miRNAs in complex biological samples are of great significance. In this work, a label-free and direct hybridization assay using molybdenum disulfide (MoS2 ) field-effect transistor (FET) biosensor has been developed for ultrasensitive detection of miRNA-155 as a breast cancer biomarker in human serum and cell-line samples...
