Background: Lung cancer is one of the common causes of death worldwide. Although the incidence rate of lung cancer in Western countries is decreasing, it presents a growing trend in developed countries. Since there is no accurate enough information about the epidemiological and Histopathologic features of lung cancer in central Iran, Isfahan, we were motivated to conduct this research. Materials and Methods: This was a descriptive, cross-sectional study carried out in central Iran, Isfahan. All demographic, histopathological and clinical data of the lung cancer patients registered in MACSA, a referral charity-based cancer center in central Iran, was analyzed within 2012-2018 using SPSS v.22 software. Results: Altogether 260 patients with lung cancer were included in this study from 6127 cancer patients registered within 2012-2018 (4.2%). Out of them, 66.2% were men, and 18.8 % of the patients were alive at the time of the study. The mean age of the patients at diagnosis was 61.56 (SD=14.11, range: 9-93)
Background Childhood malnutrition as a major public health problem among children in developing countries can affect physical and intellectual growth and is also considered as a main cause of child morbidity and mortality. The objective of this study was to estimate the prevalence of under-nutrition and identify determinants of malnutrition among children under 6 years of age in Fars province, Iran. Methods This survey was conducted by house to house visit through multi-stage sampling in 30 cities of Fars province, during December 2012 to January 2013. A total of 15408 children, aged 0-6 years old, were studied for nutritional assessment in terms of underweight, stunting, and wasting.

Dear Editor,. We are glad to read the article by Fallahi et al. (1), entitled Pulmonary Tuberculosis Seasonality Survey in Fars Province, South of Iran, which was published in the last issue of the journal. This well-written article aimed to find the sessional distribution pattern of pulmonary tuberculosis (TB). However, there are some concerns regarding interpretation of results.. The authors reported the TB sessional distribution pattern based on diagnosis time. The timeline of TB infection starts when infectious droplets are inhaled by close contacts to infected patients. Then, these infectious droplets penetrate the well ventilated area of lungs. In this situation, the immune system reaction results in granuloma formation. In most patients, the infectious process stops in this step. However, in some patients, active TB infection will be developed within months (miliary TB) or up to decades later (apical pulmonary TB) (2). After onset of TB symptom in infected patients, pulmonary TB will be ...
Posted on 03/04/2004 12:12:05 AM PST by DoctorZIn. The US media almost entirely ignores news regarding the Islamic Republic of Iran. As Tony Snow of the Fox News Network has put it, this is probably the most under-reported news story of the year. But most American s are unaware that the Islamic Republic of Iran is NOT supported by the masses of Iranians today. Modern Iranians are among the most pro-American in the Middle East. There is a popular revolt against the Iranian regime brewing in Iran today. Starting June 10th of this year, Iranians have begun taking to the streets to express their desire for a regime change. Most want to replace the regime with a secular democracy. Many even want the US to over throw their government. The regime is working hard to keep the news about the protest movement in Iran from being reported. Unfortunately, the regime has successfully prohibited western news reporters from covering the demonstrations. The voices of discontent within Iran are sometime murdered, ...

This is a brief history of Irans efforts to develop chemical weapons. The emphasis is on Irans technical achievements rather than its motives, and the essay relies primarily on statements and reports produced by government agencies and international organizations. The essay describes the origins of Irans chemical weapon program during the Iran-Iraq war, and Irans more recent efforts to acquire chemicals and technology in order to establish an indigenous production capability. Despite Irans adherence to the Chemical Weapons Convention, U.S. intelligence agencies believe that Iran maintains a chemical arsenal that probably includes blister, blood and choking agents and possibly nerve agents. Irans primary foreign suppliers of chemical weapon precursors and expertise have included China, Russia and India.. Early Development during the Iran-Iraq War. In September 1980, Iraqi troops invaded Iran, triggering a war that would last until August 1988. During the early years of the conflict, Iran ...

Background: Metastasis is important in survival and the quality of life of female breast cancer patients. This study was run in order to investigate metastasis and its related factors in female breast cancer patients in Kerman province from 2005 to 2015. The aim of this study was to investigate the factors associated with secondary metastasis in female breast cancer patients in the largest province of Iran (Kerman). Materials and Methods: In this case-control study, medical records of women diagnosed with breast cancer between the years of 2005 to 2015 were studied. Among them, 200 breast cancer patients with secondary metastasis were randomly selected as cases and 400 patients without metastasis were selected as the control group. Backward logistic regression, chi-square test, t-test and Mann-Whitney-U test were performed for comparing the two groups in SPSS 22. Results: Disease stage at diagnosis was significantly associated with secondary metastasis (p|0.001). Female patients with stage III breast
Toxoplasma gondii is an important opportunistic agent especially in immunocompromised hosts and can cause significant morbidity and mortality. Hence, detection and monitoring of anti-Toxoplasma antibodies are of a great interest in HIV-infected patients. A study on the prevalence of toxoplasmosis and associated risk factors was carried out among HIV-infected patients in Jahrom, southern Iran. The prevalence of anti-Toxoplasma IgG antibodies was 21.1% in HIV-infected patients by ELISA. PCR was performed on all of the samples, and 1 of the blood samples was positively detected. Among the HIV patients, anti-Toxoplasma IgG antibodies were significantly higher in age group of 30-39 years old (P=0.05). The seroprevalence of toxoplasmosis in patients with CD4+|100 cells/μl was 33.3% that was significantly higher than the other groups (P=0.042) with or without IgG antibodies. The CD4+ count mean of seropositive patients was lower than that of seronegative patients. The seroprevalence of toxoplasmosis in
Background and aims: The pandemic of AIDS is a global emergency and one of the biggest challenges in social and individual life. This study aimed to evaluate the survival time of HIV patients and its effective factors. Methods: This historical cohort study was conducted on the individuals infected with HIV in Fars province, south of Iran, during 2006 to 2013. The study data were obtained from information documented in the patients records. For statistical analysis, at first, Kaplan-Meier survival analysis was used as univariate method and then, time varying Cox regression model was applied as multiple analyses. Results: The findings of the present study implied that some variables could play the role of risk factors in HIV patients, and shorten the patients life span e.g. older age, female gender, unemployment, delay in HIV diagnosis, drug injection, and higher Hemoglobin (HGB) levels. Conclusion: Many factors affect HIV patients survival time. Some of these factors, such as gender and genetic

Nuclear activities of the Islamic Republic of Iran have been given considerable coverage by the international media. Such coverage is based entirely on circumstantial evidence, unfounded allegations by unnamed sources and pure innuendo. Any attempt by the Islamic Republic of Iran for peaceful application of nuclear energy, which in any other state would not even merit news coverage and would be considered an inalienable right, is immediately singled out as part of a plot to acquire nuclear weapons.. On Irans nonproliferation record. Iran is a proponent of the peaceful application of nuclear energy and has a record which can be matched by very few states. Iran signed the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) at an early date and has placed all its nuclear activities under full-scope IAEA safeguards. Iran played an active and constructive role in negotiations toward the indefinite extension of the NPT and supports efforts to negotiate a comprehensive test ban treaty. As a victim of chemical ...
Mashhad is the second-largest Iranian megacity with a population of roughly 3 million and receiving around 25 million tourists a year, wherein road traffic accidents (RTAs) have become the leading cause of death and injuries.The main purpose of this study was to calculate the burden of disease caused by RTAs in the city of Mashhad.In this applied research using a descriptive cross-sectional method, data associated with RTAs in the city of Mashhad in March 2016 - March 2017 were collected based on a complete enumeration of RTA-induced fatalities and disabilities from the Organization for Cemetery Management (Ferdows Organization) affiliated to Mashhad Municipality and the database of the Ministry of Health of Iran (MOH). Following verification, the years of life lost (YLL), the number of years lost due to disability (YLD), and the disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) were measured through the method proposed by the World Health Organization (WHO).The total number of RTA deaths was 677 cases (men = 494
India and Iran agreed in 2003 to develop a port at Chabahar on the Gulf of Oman, near Irans border with Pakistan, but the venture has made little progress due to Western sanctions on Iran.. Now, spurred on by Chinese President Xi Jinpings signing of $46 billion of energy and infrastructure deals with Pakistan, Modi wants to swiftly sign trade agreements with Iran and other Gulf countries.. Shipping Minister Nitin Gadkari will travel on a day-long tour to Iran to sign a memorandum of understanding for development of Chabahar port, a Shipping Ministry source with direct knowledge of the matter told Reuters. The deal will be signed on Wednesday, he said..

The United States goal is to work with Iran to refit the reactor in such a way that it can no longer produce weapons grade material.. However, Iran maintains that the United States and other partner nations will soon provide advanced equipment for the reactor, which is located near the Iranian industrial city of Arak.. A spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, the Islamic Republics main nuclear regulator, said on Tuesday that the United States and several other nations would begin supplying Iran equipment so that it can modernize the nuclear reactor.. Four countries of the [nuclear negotiating team] have accepted to cooperate with Iran in supplying advanced equipment for the (Arak) reactor and different other issues, Behrouz Kamalvandi, a spokesman for the Iranian nuclear authority, said Tuesday.. Kamalvandi said that while Iran could complete the modernization on its own, it has sought the world powers assistance to accelerate the job.. The issue of Arak was a key ...
The Administration held to this position at the height of the protests by the domestic opposition Green movement that took place for the six months following Irans June 12, 2009, presidential election but largely ceased in 2010. However, after failing to obtain Irans agreement to implement a compromise outlined on October 1, 2009, the Administration worked during 2010 to expand international economic sanctions against Iran. Major sanctions were imposed on Iran by the U.N. Security Council (Resolution 1929), as well as related national measures by the European Union, Japan, South Korea, and other countries. Additional measures designed to compel foreign firms to exit the Iranian market were contained in U.S. legislation passed in June 2010 (the Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability, and Divestment Act, P.L. 111-195). Still, the Administration and its partners assert that these sanctions were intended to support diplomacy with Iran to limit its nuclear program. Iran attended December ...
Prostatic cancer is the second cause of cancer-related death among men worldwide. The human papilloma viruses (HPVs) are a family of sexually transmitted viruses which have may have roles in the ethiology of in ammation in prostate leading to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and prostate cancer (PCa). In this study, we evaluated the frequency of different HPV types in prostatic cancer and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in Kerman province, southeast of Iran, using real-time PCR techniques. The aim of the present research was to clarify any association with prostatic carcinogenesis. Real Time PCR showed that HPV DNA was found in 20% of 200 PCa samples, 80 percent of these with high-risk HPV types, 40% with type-16,18, 30 % type-31,33 and 10% type 54. High risk HPV DNA was detected in only 2% of BPH samples. Values for low risk types were much higher. Our study provided a support for the role of high risk HPV infection in prostatic disease in Iranian patients, and association between presence of HPV
The West considers it to be one of the great security threats of our time, but there is arguably no nation in the world more misunderstood than Iran.. Former US President George W Bush can be thanked for much of that, particularly after he labelled Iran one of three countries in an axis of evil that sponsor international terrorism - along with North Korea and Iraq. Over the past eight years, the United States and Israel have waged a covert war - and a not so covert war of words - against Iran. Yet Iran has been a rogue state in Western eyes since well before Bush came to power. It was not always so. Iran was considered a major Western bulwark in the region under its former Shah, or King, Reza Pahlavi. But since the Shah was ousted by a popular uprising in 1979 and the country transformed into a theocracy, Iran has been economically and diplomatically isolated as a pariah state. Iran is the bastion of Shia-Islam, the smaller mainstream branch of the Muslim faith that considers Ali - one of the ...
Most at risk, of course, are the people of Iran, people as peaceful as any other, or perhaps more so. As in any country, no matter what its government, the people of Iran are fundamentally good, decent, peaceful, just, and fundamentally like you and me. Ive met people from Iran. You may have met people from Iran. They look like this. Theyre not a different species. Theyre not evil. A surgical strike against a facility in their country would cause a great many of them to die very painful and horrible deaths. Even if you imagine that Iran would not retaliate for such attacks, this is what the attacks would in themselves consist of: mass murder. And what would that accomplish? It would unite the people of Iran and much of the world against the United States. It would justify in the eyes of much of the world an underground Iranian program to develop nuclear weapons, a program that probably does not exist at present, except to the extent that legal nuclear energy programs move a country closer ...

Irans president dismissed US efforts to restore all UN sanctions on the country, as mounting economic pressure from Washington pushed the currency down to its lowest level ever on Sunday.. Irans currency dropped to 272,500 to the US dollar at money exchange offices across Tehran.. The rial has lost more than 30% of its value to the dollar since June as sweeping US sanctions on Iran continue to crush its ability to sell oil globally.. Irans currency was at 32,000 rials to the dollar at the time of Tehrans 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, which was signed by the Obama administration but which the Trump administration pulled the US out of.. As the currency plummeted, Irans president Hassan Rouhani attacked the Trump administrations declaration on Saturday that all UN sanctions against Iran have been reimposed because Tehran is not complying with the nuclear deal.. If America uses its bullying … and does something in practice, it will have to face our decisive response, Mr Rouhani said ...
Iran is not looking for war with America, its President Hassan Rouhani told French President Emmanuel Macron in a phone call on Tuesday, according to the Iranian Students News Agency (ISNA), Trend reports citing Reuters.. But Rouhani told Macron that if the United States violates Irans territorial space again, as Iranian officials maintain a U.S. drone did last week, it would be confronted.. If the Americans want to violate the waters or airspace of Iran again, Irans armed forces have a duty to confront them and they will have a decisive clash, Rouhani said.. Rouhani also told Macron that Iran will not renegotiate the 2015 nuclear deal, ISNA reported.. ...
TEHRAN, Iran - Iran said Sunday that its scientists had produced the countrys first nuclear fuel rod and its navy had test-fired a new medium-range surface-to-air missile, announcements that were likely to heighten concerns about the countrys disputed uranium-enrichment program.. The Islamic Republic News Agency reported that the fuel rod had passed all physical and dimensional tests and had been inserted into the core of Tehrans research reactor.. Iran had said it would be forced to manufacture the rods because it is barred from buying them on foreign markets. The tubes contain pellets of enriched uranium that provide fuel for nuclear reactors.. Tension has been growing between Iran and the West since a report by the United Nations nuclear inspection agency in November expressed serious concerns about a possible military dimension to the countrys nuclear program.. The United States and its allies accuse Iran of trying to develop nuclear payloads for missiles. Tehran denies the charge, ...
Known as Persia until 1935, Iran became an Islamic republic in 1979 after the ruling monarchy was overthrown and Shah Mohammad Reza PAHLAVI was forced into exile. Conservative clerical forces led by Ayatollah Ruhollah KHOMEINI established a theocratic system of government with ultimate political authority vested in a learned religious scholar referred to commonly as the Supreme Leader who, according to the constitution, is accountable only to the Assembly of Experts (AOE) - a popularly elected 88-member body of clerics. US-Iranian relations became strained when a group of Iranian students seized the US Embassy in Tehran in November 1979 and held embassy personnel hostages until mid-January 1981. The US cut off diplomatic relations with Iran in April 1980. During the period 1980-88, Iran fought a bloody, indecisive war with Iraq that eventually expanded into the Persian Gulf and led to clashes between US Navy and Iranian military forces. Iran has been designated a state sponsor of terrorism for ...
Irans threats to close the Strait of Hormuz are getting a lot of play in the press the past few days. As the ten days of naval war games for Iran that began on Saturday have continued, Irans bluster has gotten stronger, as have the US responses.. Ironically, Irans stated purpose when it began the war games included the desire to convey a message of peace and friendship to regional countries and yet, as can be seen in the video here, Iranian authorities are now saying that should their ability to export oil be curtailed through sanctions put in place by the US and European allies, they would close down the Strait of Hormuz, preventing exports by other countries in the region.. The impact of a real closure would be huge. Many of the numbers involved can be gleaned from this Bloomberg article published this morning. Irans oil exports amount to 3.6 million barrels a day, which means Iran only accounts for 23% of the 15.5 million barrels a day that pass through the Strait. It is believed that ...
Posted on 02/17/2005 9:59:20 AM PST by IAF ThunderPilot. President George W. Bush on Thursday addressed the issue of Irans possible nuclear armament, declining to offer his full endorsement of Europes negotiations to get Iran to halt its suspected nuclear weapons program. He said the United States and Europe share the goal that Iran must not develop a nuclear weapon. Still, he left it up in the air whether he fully supports Europes approach. I look forward to ... discussing strategies, ways forward with the Europeans to make sure we continue to speak with one voice, and that is Iran should not have a nuclear weapon and how to work together to make sure they dont, Bush said. Asked if was concerned that Israel might attack Iran to prevent it from acquiring a nuclear weapon, Bush said Israel is concerned about Irans intentions. But clearly, if I was the leader of Israel and Id listened to some of the statements by the Iranian ayatollahs that regarded the security of my country, Id be ...

Shiraz is a city of sophistication that has been celebrated as the heartland of Persian culture for more than 2000 years. Known as the Dar-ol-Elm (House of Learning),the City of Roses,City of Love and City of Gardens,Shiraz has become synonymous with education,nightingales,and poetry. It was one of the most important cities in the medieval Islamic world and was the Iranian capital during the Zand dynasty (AD 1747-79),when many of its most beautiful buildings were built or restored.This city is situated in the south east of Iran and is the capital city of Fars Province,with a popullation of about 1 500 000. Shiraz is mild in spring and hot in the summer. The autumns in Shiraz are not too cold; however,the winters tend to be quite cold. ...

Some in Congress believe that economic pressure on Iran needs to increase. In the 112th Congress, the Iran Threat Reduction and Syria Human Rights Act of 2012 (P.L. 112-158) made sanctionable the shipping of Iranian crude oil, and it enhanced human rights-related provisions of previous Iran-related laws. A provision of the FY2013 National Defense Authorization Act (P.L. 112-239) sanctions transactions with several key sectors of Irans economy. A bill in the 113th Congress, H.R. 850, ordered to be reported out of the House Foreign Affairs Committee on May 22, 2013, would authorize, but not mandate, U.S. sanctions against nearly all trade with Iran and it would sanction banks that exchange Irans hard currency abroad.

Leishmania infantum is the causative agent of infantile visceral leishmaniasis (IVL) in the Mediterranean Basin and, based on isoenzyme typing of a few isolates from patients and domestic dogs, this parasite was considered to predominate in the Kaleybar focus of IVL in northwest Iran. However, in the current investigation only one out of five sandfly infections was found to be L. infantum, based on PCR detection and sequencing of parasite internal transcribed spacer (ITS) rDNA infecting Phlebotomus perfiliewi transcaucasicus. The four other infections were of haplotypes of L. tropica, the causative agent of anthroponotic cutaneous leishmaniasis in the Middle East and a parasite occasionally detected in the viscera of dogs and patients in Iran and elsewhere. The widespread distribution of L. tropica in the Kaleybar focus suggests that this parasite is not a transient introduction. Kaleybar has been used for a deltamethrin dog collar intervention to reduce the biting rates of the vectors of L. ...
Could gaining control of the Central Bank of the Islamic Republic of Iran (CBI) be one of the main reasons that Iran is being targeted by Western and Israeli powers? As tensions are building up for an unthinkable war with Iran, it is worth exploring Irans banking system compared to its U.S., British and Israeli counterparts.. Some researchers are pointing out that Iran is one of only three countries left in the world whose central bank is not under Rothschild control. Before 9-11 there were reportedly seven: Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, Libya, Cuba, North Korea and Iran. By 2003, however, Afghanistan and Iraq were swallowed up by the Rothschild octopus, and by 2011 Sudan and Libya were also gone. In Libya, a Rothschild bank was established in Benghazi while the country was still at war.. Islam forbids the charging of interest, a major problem for the Rothschild banking system. Until a few hundred years ago, charging interest was also forbidden in the Christian world and was even punishable by ...
An outbreak of swine flu has left 33 people dead in two provinces of southwestern Iran in the past three weeks, the state media reported on Monday.. Deputy Health Minister Ali Akbar Sayyari said there had been 28 deaths in Kerman province and 5 in Sistan-Baluchistan and warning the H1N1 virus was likely to spread to other areas including the capital Tehran.. The health ministry predicts that the virus will spread in the coming days to Tehran, West and East Azerbaijan and Kermanshah provinces more than to other places, he said.. Nearly 600 people have been hospitalised in Kerman province over the outbreak, the head of the provinces medical university, Ali Akbar Haghdoost, told the ISNA news agency.. Traces of the H1N1 virus were uncovered three weeks ago and we were the first province to report the epidemic, Haghdoost said.. He called for limited travel during a three-day holiday weekend due to start on Thursday in order to prevent the spread of the virus.. Haghdoost suggested the outbreak ...

Israel, The Proving Ground For The Iran Nuclear Deal. The suspense and drama are ramping up in regard to the Iran nuclear development deal the Obama Administration has initiated.. The deal must pass Congress in September and the two opposing sides are the Israeli government and the Republicans in Congress. Neither want a deal with Iran and for good reasons from their viewpoint. Israel doesnt want the deal because they dont trust Iran, and the Republicans dont want the deal because of two reasons, its an Obama deal and it means no war with Iran. The military/industrial complex has been itching for more war and using every underhanded means available to get one started with Iran.. Israel has publicly stated that they wont accept the deal, so lawmakers from both sides are scheduled to meet en masse in Israel this month. First will be dozens of Democratic lawmakers who will meet with Israeli President, Benjamin Netanyahu and several other dignitaries. Theyll work on getting Israel to change ...

Rohani has one advantage over his predecessors. He is very accepted by Khamenei, who is no longer young. Khamenei, 73, became ayatollah in 1989 after the death of Ruhollah Khomeini. Khamenei has now ruled Iran for 24 years. Only the sultan of Oman, Qaboos bin Said Al Said, has been in power longer.. Rohani will know how to deal with Khamenei, people in Iran say, something that is arousing hope among Iranians. But there is still a long road to true change in Iran, particularly since Rohani is not interested in changing Iran. Rather, he wants to improve the Islamic model. How? Rohani thinks it can be done by a change in style, shunning extremism and smiling at the West. Under Rohani, Iran will become an advocate of peace. At this rate, dont be surprised if in a few years Rohani is among the candidates for the Nobel Peace Prize.. In other words, Rohani is going to do everything that Khamenei cant. So how will they get along? My government wont be one of compromise and surrender, Rohani ...
The Joint Plan of Action marks the first time in nearly a decade that the Islamic Republic of Iran has agreed to specific actions that stop the advance of its nuclear program, roll back key aspects of the program, and include unprecedented access for international inspectors. The technical understandings set forth how the provisions of the Joint Plan of Action will be implemented and verified, and the timing of implementation of its provisions. Specifically, the technical understandings specify the actions that Iran will take to limit its enrichment capacity at Natanz and Fordow, as well as the limits on safeguarded research and development (R&D); the actions Iran will take to implement its commitments not to fuel the Arak reactor or install remaining components at the reactor; and the actions Iran will take to facilitate International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) verification and confirmation that Iran is fully implementing these commitments. The understandings also clarify the reciprocal ...
Background Thalassemia is a group of congenital disorders which is characterized by a deficient synthesis of alfa or beta globulin chains in hemoglobin molecules. Due to the problems resulting from changes in face, especially in dento-maxillary regions, such patients require special attention regarding oral health. Thus in this study, we aimed to assess the dento-maxillofacial changes in Beta-thalassemia major (BTM) children and Adolescent patients in Northern Iran. Methods BTM subjects aged 2-15 years and their systemically healthy controls were evaluated in this case-control study. Dento-maxillary changes (spacing, crowding, Posterior cross bite, open bite, deep bite, overjet), dental occlusion, and facial changes (maxillary protrusion, malar prominence, saddle nose and frontal bossing), were evaluated. Data was analyzed SPSS version 22.0. Results There were 66 BTM patients and 66 healthy controls in this study, including 40.9% male and 59.1% females. The average age was 12 ±3.31years. Open bite (P
Introduction To define the clinical features, biochemical and histological findings and outcome of three forms of autoimmune hepatitis. Materials and Methods In a cross sectional study between November 2001 to January 2008 in Tehran and Mashhad university of medical sciences, 61 children who diagnosed as AIH (40 girls and 21 boys) have been analyzed for their clinical, serological, and histological data. Variables analyzed included age, sex, clinical presentation, hepatic function, immunoglobulins, autoimmunity markers, histology and clinical evolution. According to the auto-antibodies profile, AIH patients were classified as type I AIH (ANA or smooth-muscle antibodies or both positive), type II (anti-LKM-1 positive) and type III (antibody negative). Results We analyzed data of 61 children with AIH. 51 patients (median age: 10 (0.7-14) years had anti-nuclear and/or smooth muscle antibody (ANA/ASMA or both), 5 (median age: 7 (2-8) years) had liver/kidney microsomal antibody (LKM-1). 5 patients had no

The Saudi foreign minister welcomed the US decision to compel its allies to stop importing oil from Iran. Saudi Arabia fully supports the move, he said, because it is necessary to force the Iranian regime to end its support of terrorism around the world.. Saudi Arabia and other OPEC countries will compensate for the gap in the flow of oil following the full sanctions on Iranian oil, Trump said.. Trump referred to the previous governments decisions on Iran and said: Iran has received bad recommendations by John Kerry and US leaders to agree to the most difficult nuclear deal in Iran.. Trump concluded at the end: Is this a major violation of the Logan Law (a federal law that prohibits negotiations with hostile governments to the United States)? Trump wondered.. Iran has already threatened to block the Strait of Hormuz, one of the worlds largest cruise liners, and said that Trump has no influence on the continuation of their business with European countries.. Washington threatened on ...
Thirteen month ago the United States launched a total economic war against Iran. It demands its capitulation. Now Iran decided to respond in kind. It will wage a maximum pressure campaign on U.S. economic interests until the Trump administration concedes its defeat. Shipping in the Middle East will soon become very hazardous. Oil prices will go through the roof. Trump will be trapped between two choices neither of which he will like.. In early May 2018 U.S. President Trump broke the nuclear deal with Iran and sanctioned all trade with that country. Iran reacted cautiously. It hoped that the other signatories of the nuclear deal would stick to their promises and continue to trade with it. The year since proved that such expectations were wrong.. Under threat of U.S. sanctions the European partners stopped buying Iranian oil and also ended their exports to it. The new financial instrument that was supposed to allow payments between European countries and Iran has still not been implemented. It is ...

He added: Iran has had great relations with Cuba. Last year, I traveled to this country for the first time was very impressed by its culture. Sattari also expressed: we hope that the presence of the Cuban delegation in Iran leads to an appropriate view of technological abilities of Iran and effective collaborations in the nano and bio technologies and stem cells. Pointing out the preparedness of Iran to increase scientific and technological cooperation with Cuba, Sattari affirmed: we hope that technological exchanges and ...
Toxoplasmosis is a zoonotic disease in various species of animals caused by a sporozoan parasite, Toxoplasma gondii. The disease occurs throughout the world including Iran. This disease is a common infection of sheep, goats and it is recognized as one of major infection cause of reproductive failure. This survey was carried out to show the prevalence of this disease in cattle in Tabriz (Iran). 490 sera samples were collected from both native and industrial cattle. The Indirect Fluorescent Antibody Test (IFAT) was used to determine the rate of infection. The results of this survey are showed that the overall seroprevalence of antibody of Toxoplasma incattle in Tabriz is 15.91%. There was significant differences in infection to Toxoplasma gondii in the age group of cattle (P
In the introduction Elahe Rostami notes that: As is discussed by Jamileh Kadivar, Elahe Koolaee and Massoumeh Ebtekar, in this book, through much of the history of Islamic Iran, the Islamic concept of Ijtihad has allowed the constant reinterpretation of socio-economic and socio-political matters which can take both a conservative and a democratic form. However Taliban-ism and Saudi style conservatism have never existed in Iran. The Islamic Republic of Iran from its inception has been engaged in a battle between conservative Islam and reformist Islam....... The authors in this book offer a particular analysis of Iranian womens struggle for change. ..They criticize the the conservative and patriarchal traditions in Islam which have taken away womens rights and continue to subject women to unequal treatment. At the same time they challenge the perception of Muslim women in the West as passive victims of men and religion. As is discussed by Mehri Honarbin Holliday our aim is not to wholly negate ...

The purpose of this study was to identify the obstacles and issues Iranian immigrants faced in accessing health care services as seen through the eyes of Iranian health care professionals and social workers in Greater Toronto Area, Canada. Three major themes emerged from the study: language barrier and lack of knowledge of Canadian health care services/systems; lack of trust in Canadian health care services due to financial limitations and fear of disclosure; and somatization and needs for psychological support.. In this study, all participants were immigrants, bilingual, and identified themselves as Iranian- Canadian. They were familiar with their patients culture, sensitive to their values, norms and expectations. Although the educational background of each participant was different, they shared some noteworthy similarities. More than half of the participants completed their education in Iran, and received their professional designation in Canada and were therefore familiar with the Canadian ...
Background It is important to evaluate ovarian reserves prior to intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) treatment. The aim of this study is to determine the accuracy of anti-mullerian hormone (AMH) as a marker for ovarian reserve and to compare it with day-3 serum follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) levels. Materials and methods In this analytic, corss-sectional study, sequential sampling was done on 70 infertile women who underwent ICSI treatment at Imam Khomeini Hospital, Ahvaz, Iran. Initially, 5cc of venous blood was drawn from each patient to measure serum AMH and FSH levels on the day-3 cycle. Patients were divided into two subgroups according to the numbers of oocytes retrieved. Patients were classified as good responders if there were four or more oocytes retrieved, whereas patients with less than four oocytes were poor responders. Results The basal AMH level correlated with the number of oocytes retrieved (linear Pearson correlation coefficient=0.599), however the basal FSH level had a

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) - At least 208 people in Iran have been killed amid protests over sharply rising gasoline prices and a subsequent crackdown by security forces, Amnesty International said Monday, as one government official acknowledged telling police to shoot demonstrators.. Iran has yet to release any nationwide statistics over the unrest that gripped the Islamic Republic beginning Nov. 15 with minimum prices for government-subsidized gasoline rising by 50%. Irans mission to the United Nations disputed Amnestys findings early Tuesday, though it offered no evidence to support its claim.. Iran shut down internet access amid the unrest, blocking those inside the country from sharing their videos and information, as well as limiting the outside world from knowing the scale of the protests and violence. The restoration of the internet in recent days across much of the country has seen other videos surface.. Weve seen over 200 people killed in a very swift time, in under a week, ...

Background and aims: Needle stick injuries are a common and serious occupational hazard in the medical settings. So, this study was aimed to assess the incidence of needle stick injury among medical students at Tabriz Imam Reza Hospital in 2014. Methods: This is a cross-sectional study which its data was collected from 211 medical students in Tabriz Imam Reza Hospital. The study was done using valid and reliable researchers made questionnaire in December 2014 with getting inform consent from participants. The mentioned tool has two main parts; the first part studies the demographic and background variables and the second part focuses on the phenomenon of needle stick injuries and its relevant parameters. The data were firstly analyzed descriptively and the obtained results reported the qualitative variables in form of frequency (percentage) and for the quantitative variables the mean (standard deviation) was reported. Further on, the statistical relationship between demographic and background with
Haplogroup J2*(M172) was found in relatively high frequencies in the Iranian Arab and Bakhtiari groups, as well as in other groups from Iran. Haplogroup G* (M201) was found with similar frequency in Iranian Arabs as in the Iranian groups from Tehran and Isfahan, but in higher frequency in the Bakhtiari, as with the Mazandarani and Gilaki groups from Iran (Nasidze et al., 2004, 2006). To further investigate the relationships of these groups based on these two Y-SNP haplogroups, we typed nine Y-STR loci in individuals with these two Y-SNP haplogroups. Median networks of the Y-STR haplotypes are shown in Figure 5. For both Y-SNP haplogroups, the Bakhtiari are more similar to other Iranian groups than to the Iranian Arabs. Moreover, there is very little sharing of Y-STR haplotypes between Iranian Arabs and other groups from Iran, in contrast to the situation with mtDNA HV1 sequences. ...
Date: 17 January 2017. (1) Iran. We call on the Iranian authorities not to carry out the apparently imminent execution of Sajad Sanjari, who was a juvenile when he was sentenced to death for fatally stabbing a man in 2012.. Sanjari was granted a retrial in 2014 under the provisions of the 2013 Islamic Penal Code. However, in 2015 the provincial criminal court of Kermanshah rejected his argument that he had acted in self-defence following a rape attempt on him and confirmed his death sentence, finding that he had sufficient mental maturity to understand his crime. Irans Supreme Court upheld the death sentence in August 2016.. Iran remains one of the few countries that execute juvenile offenders despite its obligations under international human rights law which prohibits the use of the death penalty against anyone under 18 years of age, no matter the circumstances or the crime.. At least five juveniles were reportedly executed in Iran last year and at least 78 people reportedly remain on death ...

The authors also warn that Bahrain, Qatar and the UAE will be heavily affected by the radionuclides. (Are the Arab states of the Gulf who supposedly are so eager for Israel to contain Irans regional ambitions aware of this?). The ever-smirking Israeli Minister of Defense, Ehud Barak, has calculated that the casualties of a war with Iran could be limited to fewer than 500. There wont be 100,000 dead, not 10,000 dead nor 1,000 dead. Israel will not be destroyed, Barak said reassuringly during a November radio interview quoted by the Washington Post. If everyone just goes into their houses, there wont be 500 dead, either, he said.. Barak means Israelis. As for Iranians, whos counting? Who cares?.

Chinaberry (Melia azedarach L.) is a beautiful tree indigenous to the Himalayas that grows as a native plant in Iran. Symptoms similar to bacterial gall have been observed on the crown, shoot and twig of chinaberry, a recent landscape tree since 2003-2004 in Shiraz, Fars province, south of Iran. A gram negative bacterium was isolated from the galls. The isolates did not produce fluorescent pigment on Kings B medium, were negative in oxidase, levan production, potato soft rot, casein, gelatin hydrolysis, nitrate reduction, growth at 5oC, uease production and indol production, but were positive in arginine dihydrolase, catalase, growth at 35oC, and also produced hypersensitive reaction on tobacco. Wound inoculated bacterial suspension into chinaberry seedlings produced galls from which the bacterium was reisolated. Systemic movement of the isolates into the vascular system of chinaberry was shown by the formation of gall above the inoculation site on the stem. On the basis of biochemical, physiological

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) - Iran on Monday announced the arrest of 17 Iranians accused of spying on the countrys nuclear and military sites for the CIA and said some of them have been sentenced to death. President Donald Trump called it another lie from Iran.. The arrests happened over the past months, an Iranian intelligence official said at a news conference in Tehran. He said those taken into custody worked on sensitive sites in military and nuclear installations. The official did not say how many were given death sentences.. The announcement came amid weeks of rising tensions between Washington and Tehran over Trumps decision to pull the United States out of Irans nuclear agreement with world powers last year and impose sweeping sanctions on the country.. The official said the 17 were recruited by the CIA and had sophisticated training but did not succeed in their sabotage missions. Their spying missions included collecting information at the facilities where they worked and ...

By Babak Dehghanpisheh. BEIRUT (Reuters) - A week after U.S. President Donald Trump delivered a blistering speech about Irans Revolutionary Guards, the most powerful military and economic force in the Islamic Republic has shown it has no intention of curbing its activities in the Middle East.. In defiance of other world powers, Trump chose in a speech last Friday not to certify that Tehran is complying with a pact to curb Irans nuclear work and singled out the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), accusing Tehran of destabilizing the region.. A senior IRGC commander said after the speech Trump was acting crazy and was following U.S. strategy of increasing the shadow of war in the region.. Irans Shiite militia proxies have made formidable military gains in recent months in Syria as well as Iraq, stretching from northern Iraq to a string of smaller cities and this week, after the Trump speech, re-captured the oil-rich city of Kirkuk.. In the short-run clearly Trump has increased the ...
