BACKGROUND: Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) and multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) are frequently used in dental and maxillofacial problems. This study aimed to assess the genotoxicity and cytotoxicity effects of CBCT and MDCT radiographies on exfoliated buccal epithelial cells during dental examinations. METHODS: This prospective experimental study was conducted at Babol University of Medical Sciences (Babol, Iran) from March 2021 to April 2021. Buccal mucosa smears were collected bilaterally pre-exposure and 12 days after CBCT or MDCT examinations...

BACKGROUND: Cichorium intybus L. (Kasni) distillate is widely used in Eastern countries as a safe herbal drink to improve male fertility. However, the potential effects on fertility parameters and possible adverse effects have not been studied experimentally. The current study aims to evaluate the impact of Cichorium intybus L. distillate (CD) on male mice fertility. METHODS: In the present study (Shiraz, Iran), 30 male mice (30-35 g) were divided into three groups...

BACKGROUND: Although antihistamines are the first-line treatment for chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU), 50% of patients don't respond to standard doses. In this study, the effectiveness of Ziziphus jujube fruit syrup in combination with antihistamines was assessed in patients with CSU. METHODS: This double-blind randomized clinical trial was conducted in Shiraz between December 2019 and December 2020. 64 patients with CSU who had experienced hives for at least six weeks and did not respond to the usual treatments were enrolled in the study...

BACKGROUND: Despite suggesting many genetic risk markers as the outcome of Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) for breast cancer, replicating the results in different populations has remained the main issue. In this regard, this study assessed the association of two variations in Zinc Finger 365 ( ZNF365 ) in an Iranian population. METHODS: In a case-control study conducted at Mashhad University of Medical Sciences, Mashhad, Iran, between 2017 and 2020, ZNF365 - rs10822013 and rs10995190 were genotyped using Allele-Specific PCR (AS-PCR)...

Gastrointestinal (GI) manifestations of lead poisoning include abdominal pain, constipation, and diarrhea. Depending on the severity of a symptom, surgical consultation is required. The present study aimed to make a comparison between the mean blood lead levels of patients hospitalized for lead toxicity and the various Gl symptoms. A retrospective cross-sectional study was performed in 2020 at Khorshid Hospital, the main regional referral center for poisoned patients (Isfahan, Iran).

As the most common type of inherited retinal degenerative disease, retinitis pigmentosa (RP) has taken clinical and prenatal attention. Considering the clinical importance of consanguineous marriages, new mutations in this type of pregnancy have a high risk and increase the importance of Prenatal Diagnosis (PND). In vitro analysis was done through Whole Exome Sequencing (WES) for a 36-year-old woman who was referred to a genetic laboratory in Kermanshah in 2021 for PND. The woman had consanguineous marriage and was pregnant with twins (a boy and a girl)...

Infertility is a global health problem affecting about 15% of all couples, of which 50% are due to male infertility. Although the etiology of infertility is known in most infertile men, idiopathic male infertility remains a challenge. Therefore, there is a need for novel diagnostic methods to detect the underlying mechanisms and develop appropriate therapies. Recent studies have focused on the role of non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) in male infertility. Circular RNAs (CircRNAs), a type of ncRNAs, are found to play a key role in the development of some pathological conditions, including cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cancers, autoimmune diseases, etc...

BACKGROUND: Group B Streptococcus (GBS) can cause serious infections in neonates and pregnant women. GBS may cause urinary tract infections (UTIs). However, molecular epidemiology of such infections is rarely reported. The present study aimed to determine drug resistance patterns and molecular serotyping of GBS isolates in a population of pregnant Iranian women with UTIs. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted during the first half of 2021 in the Department of Biology, East Tehran Branch, Islamic Azad University (Tehran, Iran)...

BACKGROUND: Recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS) is the most common ulcerative disease that affects oral mucosa. The coating agents, topical analgesics, and topical steroids are usually used as treatment methods. Glycyrrhiza glabra has been used for RAS treatment based on its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and immunomodulatory properties. In this study, a systemic review on the therapeutic effect of topical licorice on RAS management was performed. METHODS: Science Direct, Scopus, Cochrane databases, PubMed Google Scholar, and ResearchGate were searched up to September 2021 to find all English randomized clinical trials studying the effect of G...

BACKGROUND: Tobacco smoke contains various toxins that negatively affect the human reproductive system. Caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE), a potent antioxidant, has protective effects on the reproductive system against oxygen-free radicals, methotrexate, and pesticides. Herein, the effect of CAPE on some key markers of endometrial receptivity has been evaluated.

Pulmonary Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) is a rare disease of the lung and lymphatic system that primarily affects women of childbearing age. LAM is a progressive disease with a terrible prognosis, which worsens over time and is extremely difficult to treat. In this study, we discuss the case of a 31-year-old woman with LAM who was initially misdiagnosed with leiomyoma and the way that led to a true diagnosis and effective treatment. Following a precise diagnosis based on comprehensive clinical data and particular immunohistochemical tests, sirolimus treatment was initiated, and the patient entirely responded to the treatment...

BACKGROUND: Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is associated with sleep disorders, which in turn may lead to anxiety and depression. Sleep deprivation impairs glucose metabolism causing a decrease in insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance. The present study aimed to determine the association of insomnia with anxiety and depression in patients with T2DM. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted in 2020 at the Endocrinological Department of City Clinical Hospital №1, affiliated with Astana Medical University (Astana, Kazakhstan)...

Management of the posterior urethral valve (PUV) is a clinical challenge in pediatric urology. We report the results of a modified valve ablation method without using a pediatric resectoscope and thermal energy. Patients were selected from children with PUV who were referred to the pediatric urology clinic of Shahid Labbafinejad Hospital, Tehran, Iran, and have undergone endoscopic valve ablation surgery between May 2019 to May 2021. Ten male patients with PUV underwent mechanical valve ablation without the use of the conventional pediatric resectoscope, and thermal energy was replaced by a 6F semi-rigid urethroscope and 3Fr ureteral catheter...
