A dual impression technique for implant overdentures.
This article describes a technique for a two-stage selective pressure impression with a custom tray for implant-retained, tissue-supported overdentures.
Evaluation of surgical treatment of developmental dysplasia of hip for avascular necrosis of femoral head in children.
Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip (DDH) is a common congenital malformation. Avascular necrosis of femoral head is the major complication of both close and open reduction of the dislocated joint. Aim of this study was to ...
Calcitriol Started in the Donor, Expands the Population of CD4+CD25+ T Cells in Renal Transplant Recipients
Objectives: Alloreactive T cells recognize antigens via direct and indirect pathways. The competency of costimulatory molecules on antigen-presenting cells (APC) is important. An active form of vitamin D (1,25(OH)2D3, ...
Different Morphologies of Leishmania major Amastigotes with No Molecular Diversity in a Neglected Endemic Area of Zoonotic Cutaneous Leishmaniasis in Iran.
Molecular diversity of Leishmania major and its morphological changes have become a controversial issue among researchers. Some aspects of polymorphic shapes of amastigotes in clinical manifestations along with molecular ...
Evaluating role of leukocytosis and high sedimentation rate as prognostic factors in acute ischemic cerebral strokes.
Leukocytosis and increased Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) during the early phases of acute ischemic stroke has been proposed to be related with poor prognosis. The aim of this study was to evaluate these two parameters ...
Extraction and Analysis of Methadone in Exhaled Breath Condensate Using a Validated LC-UV Method.
A combined microextraction and separation method is presented for the determination of methadone in exhaled breath condensate (EBC) which is a promising non-invasive biological component for monitoring drug concentrations.In ...
Is the frameshift codons 8/9 (+G) [FSC 8/9 (+G)] ?-thalassemia mutation, detected by the polymerase chain reaction-amplification refractory mutation system, really FSC 8/9 (+G)?
There are several polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based approaches for the analysis of known mutations. The PCR-amplification refractory mutation system (PCR-ARMS) is one of the best known and frequently used for the ...
The hypothesis of 'biophysical matrix contraction': wound contraction revisited.
Wound contraction is an orchestrated phenomenon that contributes to closure of wounds that heal by secondary intention. However, excessive and premature contraction results in scarring. Although the exact mechanism of ...
Preparation and in vitro evaluation of doxorubicin-loaded Fe 3O 4 magnetic nanoparticles modified with biocompatible copolymers
Background: Superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles are attractive materials that have been widely used in medicine for drug delivery, diagnostic imaging, and therapeutic applications. In our study, superparamagnetic ...
Prevalence of cigarette and water pipe smoking and their predictors among Iranian adolescents
Introduction: Widespread tobacco use, along with its induced diseases and subsequent deaths, comprise one of the biggest threats to public health in the world. Thus, we aimed to investigate the prevalence of cigarette and ...
