Abstract Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the deadliest malignancies. Recent attempts have indicated the role of diet in the etiology of CRC. Natural dietary compounds such as probiotics and Omega‐3 fatty acids that act synergistically can be beneficial in finding a tremendous solution against CRC. To date, the combined effect of fish oil containi...

The use of umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells along with three-dimensional (3D) scaffolds in pancreatic tissue engineering can be considered as a treatment for diabetes. This study aimed to investigate the differentiation of Wharton’s jelly-derived mesenchymal stem cells (WJ-MSCs) into pancreatic islet-insulin producing cells (IPCs) on s...
Article
Background: Using a different source of stem cells to compensate for the lost beta cells is a promising way to cure diabetic patients. Besides The best efficiency of insulin-producing cells (IPCs) will appear when we culture them in an environment similar to inside the body. Hence, three-dimensional (3D) culture ameliorates the differentiation of...

Calcium Voltage-Gated Channel Subunit Alpha1 C (CACNA1C) is one of the most important genes associated with schizophrenia. In this study, 45 male Wistar rats were divided into 5 groups of saline, control, ketamine, clozapine, and risperidone. Animals in ketamine, risperidone, and clozapine groups received ketamine (30 mg/kg-i.p.) for 10 days. After...

Sex-determining region Y-box 2 (SOX2) is a stem cell transcription factor and a major regulator of self-renewal and pluripotency of cancer stem cells (CSCs). In many types of cancer, SOX2 is dysregulated due to overexpression associated with tumor progression and low survival rate. Many HCC cases encounter recurrence and metastasis which might be d...

In this study, we applied a direct condensation between 3-acetyl-4-hydroxy-2H-chromen-2-one and different amines (anilines and benzyl amines) in order to synthesize some coumarin-based imines/enamines (3a–o) as cytotoxic agents. All the compounds were characterized by means of FT-IR, NMR, mass spectroscopy and elemental analyses. Since the title co...

Gastric cancer (GC) is one of the most prevalent cancers and a major cause of cancer related mortality worldwide. Incidence of GC is affected by various factors, including genetic and environmental factors. Despite extensive research has been done for molecular characterization of GC, it remains largely unknown. Therefore, further studies specially...

Background Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a chronic inflammatory disease characterized by axial arthritis. The genetic–environmental factors seem to be involved in the pathogenesis of the disease and the disease debilitates patients during the most productive stages of their lives. The aim of this study was to examine the relationships between two...

Background/aim: Environmental and genetic factors may play a major role in the development of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) among people with obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Based on the fact that PGC-1α, as the protein encoded by the PPARGC1A gene, plays a key role in energy metabolism pathways, it has been hypothesized that poly...
Article
Aims: Senescence is a state ensuing aging to eliminate age-associated damage with an irreversible cell-cycle arrest mechanism, which is historically believed to be one of the tumor responses to therapy. Doxorubicin as an anti-cancer drug has been used in cancer treatment for a long time. Liposomal doxorubicin (Ldox) is a liposomal formulation of d...
Article
Ethnopharmacological relevance: Colorectal cancer (CRC) is now one the fourth cause of mortality and morbidity due to cancer throughout the globe. Cachexia is more prevalent in patients with this cancer and has a negative effect on response to chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Inflammatory cytokines such as TNF–α, IL–1β, and IL–6 could play a key role...

Purpose: Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) primarily includes ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease (CD). Thymic stromal lymphopoietin (TSLP) is a cytokine produced by intestinal epithelial cells (IECs) with immunomodulatory properties that plays an important role in the development of regulatory T cell (Treg) responses and tolerance in the g...
Article
Full-text available
Background: Ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease (CD) are the two forms of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Adaptive immune responses involving helper T cells play an important role in developing IBDs. Programmed death (PD)-1 and its ligands namely PD-L1 and PD-L2 are negative costimulatory molecules that control T cell motility and formati...

Article
Critical limb ischemia (CLI) is the advanced stage of peripheral artery disease spectrum and is defined by limb pain or impending limb loss because of compromised blood flow to the affected extremity. Current conventional therapies for CLI include amputation, bypass surgery, endovascular therapy, and pharmacological approaches. Although these conve...

Wound healing is a complex but a fine‐tuned biological process in which human skin has the ability to regenerate itself following damage. However, in particular conditions such as deep burn or diabetes the process of wound healing is compromised. Despite investigations on the potency of a wide variety of stem cells for wound healing, adipose‐derive...

Background: Diabetes caused by insulin production disturbance is considered as the most common metabolic disorder all over the world. Diabetes may outbreak because of low insulin secretion by Islets of Langerhans β-cells, insulin resistance or both of them. In this way, using stem cells, which have the capability to differentiate into Pancreatic β-...

Background Deviation of host immune response by engagement of inhibitory receptors is one of the well-known mechanisms of tumor cells for immune evasion and survival. PD-1/PD-L1 and Tim-3/Gal-9 axes are two major pathways in this area which their contribution has been documented in a variety of malignancies. In this study, Gal-9 and PD-L1 expressio...

Varicella zoster virus (VZV) causes chicken pox as a primary infection following which it becomes latent in neurons. It may then reactivate to cause shingles (herpes zoster). Severity of lesions and VZV pathogenicity are depended on the host’s immune response and variant in VZV Dr Athina Myrto ChioniIdentification of VZV seroprevalance rate in gene...

ABO blood type antigens are polymorphic, inherited structures presented on the surface of red blood cells. Although ABO blood group antigens are the most important antigens in transfusion medicine but their main role is not clearly clarified yet. The correlation between ABO blood group and susceptibility to certain infectious and non-infectious dis...

HBV infection is a major global health problem and ten genotypes (A to J) and multiples subtypes of HBV have been identified, and they show some distinct geographic distributions. The available data on HBV genotype in Iran are very heterogeneous and limited. Therefore in this study, we tried to identify the HBV genotypes by using polymerase chain r...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Cytotoxin-associated gene A (CagA)-positive strains of Helicobacter pylori are associated with gastroduodenal diseases. Evidences have suggested that the type of H. pylori CagA EPIYA motifs may be associated with recurrent dyspepsia (i.e. gastritis, peptic ulcer, or gastric cancer). We investigated the prevalence of different EP...
