Turncurtoviruses (family: Geminiviridae; genus: Turncurtovirus) appear to have a high degree of genetic variation in Iran. Leafhoppers of the species Circulifer haematoceps (Mulsant and Rey, 1855) (family: Cicadellidae) were collected in 2014 from three geographical regions in south-eastern Iran (Orzoeyeh, Jiroft and Sirjan; Kerman province) and screened for the presence of turncurtoviruses using a combination of PCR and rolling circle amplification (RCA) methods. Eleven genomes of turncurtovirus were recovered and sequenced. Read More

L-arginine administration decreases mean arterial blood pressure (MABP), presumably by excess nitric oxide (NO) synthesis. However, some reports indicate that d-arginine, not a substrate of NO synthase (NOS), also induces hypotension. To clarify this phenomenon, the hemodynamic effects of L- and D-arginine and their modification by NOS inhibition with L-nitroarginine methyl ester (L-NAME) were assessed. Read More

Purpose: To compare the success rates of probing in Nepalese children younger than 2 years versus children older than 2 years with nasolacrimal duct obstruction (NLDO), and to identify factors associated with successful probing.
Materials And Methods: Data was collected and analyzed retrospectively on children who underwent probing under general anesthesia for NLDO at Tilganga Eye Centre, Nepal, from May 2004 to October 2008. We compared successful probing rates in children less than or equal to 2 years old (group 1) versus children greater than 2 years old (group 2), and analyzed whether various clinical factors were associated with successful probing.
