Hepatitis B and C prevalence and its associated risk factors among school going children in urban and rural areas of District Muzaffar Garh, Pakistan

Authors: Sikandar Hayat, Muhammad Naeem, Arif Malik, Qurban Ali, Muhammad Khalid, Samrah Masud and Arif Mahmood Bhutta

Viral Hepatitis like hepatitis B and hepatitis C are the serious cause of mortality in Pakistan. Present study estimated the prevalence and risk factors associated with Hepatitis B and C among school going children from urban and rural areas. In urban areas overall prevalence of HBV was 5% where the highest prevalence of HBV was 80% and 20% in males and f.. Read More»

Synonymous Variant of ACE Gene (rs4343) is Coupled with Early Age at Onset and Diminished Diabetic Duration in South Indian Diabetic Nephropathy Patients

Authors: S. Babi Heera, Umme Najiya Mahwish, Fazul Rahman, Sayeeduddin S, Sree Bhushan Raju , Parveen Jahan

Diabetic nephropathy (T2DN) is a major micro vascular complication associated with type-2 diabetes (T2DM). Abnormally active Renin Angiotensin System pathway is shown to influence the development of T2DN and the inter-individual variation with respect to ACE levels, a key enzyme in this pathway partly dependent on the genetic variants of ACE..

Integrative omics of ovarian cancer

Authors: Yanisa Rattanapan and Takol Chareonsirisuthigul

Omics such as genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics are gathering the study of entire characterization and molecular biology processes of organisms. The advancement in studying omics has become useful and widely applied to many human diseases. For ovarian cancer, pathogenic mechanisms at molecular levels resulting in the development of c..

Expression analysis of long non-coding RNAs GSTT1-AS1 and IFNG-AS1 and their target genes in lung cancer

Authors: Farbod Esfandi, Zabih Mir Hassani, Shahram Arsang-Jang, Mohammad Taheri, Soudeh Ghafouri-Fard

Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have recently gained attention because of their regulatory roles on expression of genes involved in the immune response and cancer. In the present study, we evaluated expression of two lncRNAs (GSTT1-AS1 and IFNG-AS1) and their target genes (TNFA and IFNG) in human lung cancer samples and their adjacent non-cancerous tissues..

Glioblastoma in a 20-year-old female patient after Chikungunya infection

Authors: L.O. MourĂ£o, L. Delmonico, A.S. Moreira, K.R. Bulsara, T. Da Luz, R.T. Silvestre, A.C.B. Koifman, L.C. Guida, G.N. Soares, M.G.C. Carvalho, M.H. Ornellas and G. Alves

We describe the case of a 20-year-old female patient who died 4 months after the diagnosis of a glioblastoma (GBM). The tumor emerged nearly a month after a Chikungunya (CHIKV) infection and displayed positivity to Citomegalovirus (CMV) DNA. The immunohistochemical studies revealed GFAP positivity in rare cells, IDH-1 positive, vimentin positive, ATRX pos.. Read More»

Interleukin-7 receptor gene rs12516866 polymorphism decreases the susceptibility of estrogen receptor negative Saudi women to breast cancer

Authors: Mikhlid Almutairi, Rafa Almeer, Abdullah M Alhadeq and Abdelhabib Semlali

Background: Genetic polymorphisms in IL-7R are associated with the risk of development of multiple diseases, including breast malignancy. At present, no evidence exists for an influence of gene polymorphism of IL-7R on BC susceptibility in Saudi Arabian populations. The aim of the study was therefore to evaluate whether common polymorphisms in the IL-7R g.. Read More»

MicroRNAs as biomarkers of kidney allograft injuries ischemia reperfusion and acute rejection

Authors: Patricia Milhoransa, Carolina Caruccio Montanari, Mariane Dos Santos, Marina Sieber, Roberto Ceratti Manfro

Renal transplantation provides a significant increase in life expectancy for patients with end-stage kidney diseases. Despite the unequivocal progresses made in the last decades, many grafts injuries still jeopardize graft function leading to its loss. Currently, the allograft biopsy is the gold standard for diagnosing such conditions. However, it has man.. Read More»
