How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
I like the work on the Immunopathology of parasitic diseases (particularly cystic echinococcosis), allergic diseases & inflammation. I have a good experience in several lab techniques, e.g. cell culture techniques, Immunocytochemistry, Immunofluorescence, fluorescence microscopy, ELISA, WB, SDS-PAGE, and Bacterial cultivation & isolation. I’ve supervised Asthma, Hydatidosis and Toxoplasmosis projects for PhD, MSc & a higher diploma students. Currently supervise a project on a novel anti--inflam

Balad –Rooz is considered as one of the endemic foci of Schistosomiasisin Iraq.A survey was performed during the first three months of 2002 in fewprimary schools in Balad –Rooz to assess the prevalence among them.
Toxoplasmosis is one of the most globally prevalent zoonotic infection caused by an obligate, intracellular parasite called Toxoplasma gondii. Toxoplasmosis actively triggers an acute immune response and inflammatory reactions, which causes serious pathological changes in various tissues in the human body, and more evidently localizes in different...
Cystic echinococcosis (CE) causes massive public health problem in many global endemic areas including Iraq. It is hyperendemic in Iraq, and local specialists call it “the cancer of Iraq”. CE mainly is due to infection with larval hydatid cyst of the dog tapeworm Echinococcus granulosus. The human is an accidental intermediate host, though, the dis...
Immunocytochemistry of In vitro produced mucin from HT29- MTX cell line Abstract Mucus represents the first line of defense against pathogens and damage in the human intestine. the major components of mucus are mucins which are high molecular weight glycoproteins providing potential binding sites for both pathogenic and commensal microorganisms. T...
Hydatid disease is a zoonosis caused by Echinococcus granulosus larval stage, characterized by developing a fluid-filled hydatid cyst in any part in the body, with a particular liver and lung localization. The released hydatid cyst fluid (HCF) antigens actively induce epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) in the epithelial cells surrounding th...
Antioxidants and oxidative stress status are clinically important in the detection of many diseases. In order to estimate the role of oxidative stress in hydatid disease pathogenesis, the antioxidant levels and oxidative stress status were examined in the patients of hydatid cysts. Thirty patients having active hydatid cyst of Echinococcus granulos...
The second most common cancer of the Thyroid gland is FollicularThyroid Carcinoma (FTC), second only to papillary carcinoma. Resveratrol, a natural polyphenolic compound that has anti- oxidative, anti-inflammatory and apoptotic properties, appears to have substantial cardio protection and cancer-prevention properties. Furthermore, resveratrol is th...
In a pioneer study, simple water extract for the red petals of Rosa spp. was prepared under sterile conditions, then used for the first time as experimental bacterial culture medium for the growth of the bacteria: Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus vulgaris, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Streptococcus pneumoniae and Klebsiella pneumoniae; t...
Simple attempt were applied to keep the protoscolices of Echinococcus granulosus removed from human hydatid cysts alive with full activity in vitro using different culture media [RPMI-1640, Physiological Ringer’s solution(RS), Physiological normal saline solution(NS)], the best temperature for cultivation in this media were also investigated betwee...
Malondialdehyde (MDA) is the most commonly marker that is used to investigate the presence of oxidative stress in biological system, and glutathioneredox cycle is a major antioxidant defense system for the detoxification of reactive oxygen species (ROS) within erythrocyte.In the present study, we aimed to evaluate erythrocyte malondialdehyde (MDA)...
