A non-randomized clinical trial to evaluate the effect of fingolimod on expanded disability status scale score and number of relapses in relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis patients

BackgroundMultiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease characterized by demyelination, glial activation and axonal degeneration in the central nervous system. At the present, there is no certain remedy for this disease. However, available therapies often attenuate disease progress.MethodsThis study aims at identification of the effect of fingolimod on expanded disability status...

Comparison of administration of clopidogrel with aspirin versus aspirin alone in prevention of secondary stroke after transient ischemic attack

BackgroundPatients with transient ischemic attack (TIA) or minor stroke are at risk of strokes. One of the precautionary measures to reduce risk of stroke in these patients is administration of antiplatelet drugs.MethodsThe aim of this study was comparison of clopidogrel with aspirin versus aspirin alone in prevention of stroke following TIA or acute minor stroke. This clinical...

The effect of omega-3 fatty acids on clinical and paraclinical features of intractable epileptic patients: a triple blind randomized clinical trial

Long chain omega-3 fatty acids (omega-3 FAs) supplements have been shown to exert beneficial effects in patients with epilepsy through elevation of seizure thresholds and dampening of inflammatory responses. In this triple blind randomized, placebo-controlled parallel group trial of omega-3 FA supplementation, 180 mg eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and 120 mg docosahexaenoic acid...

The effect of natalizumab on disability score and relapse rate of multiple sclerosis patients: a prospective cohort study

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a progressive immune-related disorder of the central nervous system leading to destruction of myelin sheaths. Natalizumab is a humanized monoclonal antibody against the cell adhesion molecule α4-integrin which has been approved for treatment of relapsing forms of MS. This study aims at determining the effect of natalizumab on expanded disability status...

Assessment of expression of interferon γ ( IFN-G ) gene and its antisense ( IFNG-AS1 ) in breast cancer

The role of long non-coding RNAs has been extensively appreciated in the contexts of cancer. Interferon γ-antisense RNA1 (IFNG-AS1) is an lncRNA located near to IFN-γ-encoding (IFNG) gene and regulates expression of IFNG in Th1 cells. In the present study, we evaluated expression of IFNG and IFNG-AS1 in 108 breast samples including tumoral tissues and their adjacent non-cancerous...

Optical characterization of Fe3+ doped CdS nanoparticles synthesized by wet-chemical route

Fe3+ doped CdS nanoparticles using Mercaptoethanol as a capping agent were prepared by colloidal wet-chemical method. UV-VIS spectra show that Fe-doping can effectively tune energy band structure, i.e. a large blue shift (\sim 30 nm) with increasing Fe concentration. PL measurement of doped CdS nanoparticles shows an additional emission band at \sim 532 nm, which can be due to...

NLRP3 Localizes to the Tubular Epithelium in Human Kidney and Correlates With Outcome in IgA Nephropathy

Nod-like receptor pyrin domain-containing-3 (NLRP3) has been implicated in the pathogenesis of experimental renal injury, yet its characterization in human kidney disease remains largely unexplored. NLRP3 expression was evaluated in human kidney biopsies, primary renal tubular cells (HPTC) and correlated to disease outcomes in patients with IgA nephropathy (IgAN). NLRP3 localized...
