Background: To compare mRNA expression of interleukin 10 (IL-10), interleukin 17 (IL-17) and Transforming Growth Factor-β (TGF-β) in aqueous humor (AH) and peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) in human ocular toxoplasmosis (OT) and controls.Method: RNA isolation, cDNA synthesis and real-time polymerase chain reaction were performed on AH sediments and PBMCs of 16 patients with active OT and 21 controls at the Khatam-al-Anbia Eye Hospital, Iran. For comparison, Mann Whitney U test was used at a discrimination level of p < 0. Read More

After cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), the occurrence of systemic inflammatory response is often accompanied by a persistent compensatory anti-inflammatory response syndrome that can lead to a compromised immune competence termed immunoparalysis, rendering the patients susceptible to infections which is a leading complication following cardiac surgery. However, the underlying mechanisms of CPB-elicited immunoparalysis remain obscure. In this study we showed that peroxiredoxin 1 (Prdx1), a putative cytosolic antioxidant, was released immediately after CPB in a cohort of pediatric patients receiving congenital cardiac surgery.

Background: We have consistently noticed in our clinical practice eczematous dermatitis (EcD) without other pathologic findings of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) in recipients of unrelated cord blood transplantation (CBT). We hypothesized that the incidence of EcD was higher in CBT compared to other donor types.Objective: To compare the frequency, clinical course, and response to therapy of EcD among CBT and non-CBT recipients.

Rare genetic liver diseases can result in multi-systemic damage, which may compromise the patient's prognosis. Wilson's disease, must be investigated in any patient with unexplained liver disease and/or unexplained neurological or neuropsychiatric disorders. The diagnosis is based on a combination of clinical, biological features, including copper balance. Read More
