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

Background and objectives: angiotensin II is involved in the development of hypertension. The main objectives of the study were to measure and compare the levels of angiotensin II among normal population in various areas with different altitudes Methods: Study design: cross-sectional study was conducted to collect data from participants at the same...
The present study evaluates and compares firstly the serum biomarkers of oxidative stress, superoxide dismutase (SOD), induced nitric oxide synthase (iNOS), malondialdehyde (MDA), glutathione oxidized and reduced, homocysteine (Hcy), and total antioxidant capacity (TAOC), and secondly computed tomography (CT) scans for 30 diagnosed cystinuric patie...
Introduction: Jordan has a unique array of diversity among which having the deepest level in the world, the Dead Sea and an area with high attitudes in Ajloun City which gives us a great chance to study the biological effects on hypertension and possible impacts in selecting the appropriate treatment. Study objectives: to explore the impacts of var...
The present study evaluates and compares the serum biomarkers of oxidative stress—superoxide dismutase (SOD), induced nitric oxide synthase (iNOS), malondialdehyde (MDA), glutathione reductase (GR), and total antioxidant capacity (T-AOC), in a case-control design study of 30 diagnosed patients with cystine stone and 30 sex- and age-matched healthy...
Background: hypertension affects many people worldwide and it is highly prevalent in Jordan. Living at different areas with different attitudes may have impacts in hypertension. Study objectives: to identify the prevalence of hypertension in two areas in Jordan with different attitudes and to determine the impact of attitudes in hypertension and an...
Introduction: hypertension may be affected by environment. The variation of altitudes has been reported to play a role in hypertension. In Jordan, we have an environment rich in diversity as having areas in the sea level and others in the lowest depth in the world (the Dead Sea). Objectives: to examine the impact of altitudes on the level of angiot...
The present study addressed bacterial biofilms in terms of concepts, structures, and roles. The various aspects related to formation of biofilms were discussed. The roles of bacterial biofilms in clinical settings were discussed. We also discussed the roles of bacterial biofilms in wounds.
Conventional fuels are subjecting to continuous loss due to increased population and increased consumption. At the same time, conventional fuels have been associated with environmental hazards. Due to the possibility of lacking conventional fuel sources, searching for other alternatives and solutions to cope with such deficiencies is a good approac...
Thin filament-associated proteins such as calponin, caldesmon, and smoothelin are believed to regulate acto-myosin interaction and thus, muscle contraction. Oxidative stress has been found to affect the normal contractile behavior of smooth muscle and is involved in the pathogenesis of a number of human diseases such as diabetes mellitus, hypertens...
To discuss new hypotheses from the perspectives of researchers through own hypothesis or other interesting hypothesis according to researcher.
1. To assess the glutathione Redox status of patients with kidney cystine stones and compare it with age and sex matched healthy subjects. 2. To evaluate the impacts of oral glutathione supplementation on biomarker of systemic oxidative stress in patients with kidney cystine stones and on some clinical parameters of these patients such as the size of stone, plasma homocysteine level and superoxide dismutase activity. 3. Genetic study to detect type of mutation on those patients
