Splenic hydatic cyst as a cause of sinistral portal hypertension and isolated gastric variceal bleeding
A 60-year-old male, living in a rural area, presented with recurrent upper gastrointestinal bleeding. Isolated fundal varices were seen on endoscopy. A lesion similar to cyst hydatid was seen in the spleen on abdominal ...
Surgical Removal of Spinal Mass Lesions with Open Door Laminoplasty
Objective: The open door laminoplasty technique has been previously used to treat cervical spondylotic myelopathy. We adapted this technique for the removal of spinal tumors all along the spinal axis.
Yersinia pseudotuberculosis colitis presented with severe gastrointestinal bleeding
We report an adult case of Yersinia pseudotuberculosis colitis who presented with severe gastrointestinal bleeding. A 25-year-old male had admitted with fever, vomiting, body aches, and massive lower gastrointestinal ...
Dendritic Cell Mediated Delivery of Plasmid DNA Encoding LAMP/HIV-1 Gag Fusion Immunogen Enhances T Cell Epitope Responses in HLA DR4 Transgenic Mice
This report describes the identification and bioinformatics analysis of HLA-DR4-restricted HIV-1 Gag epitope peptides, and the application of dendritic cell mediated immunization of DNA plasmid constructs. BALB/c (H-2d) ...
Advancing standards for bioinformatics activities: persistence, reproducibility, disambiguation and Minimum Information About a Bioinformatics investigation (MIABi)
The 2010 International Conference on Bioinformatics, InCoB2010, which is the annual conference of the Asia-Pacific Bioinformatics Network (APBioNet) has agreed to publish conference papers in compliance with the proposed ...
Cheminformatics-Based Drug Design Approach for Identification of Inhibitors Targeting the Characteristic Residues of MMP-13 Hemopexin Domain
Background: MMP-13, a zinc dependent protease which catalyses the cleavage of type II collagen, is expressed in osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients, but not in normal adult tissues. Therefore, the ...
T3SEdb: data warehousing of virulence effectors secreted by the bacterial Type III Secretion System
Background: Effectors of Type III Secretion System (T3SS) play a pivotal role in establishing and maintaining pathogenicity in the host and therefore the identification of these effectors is important in understanding ...
The Effects of Negative Air Ions upon Some Biochemical Parameters in Rats
Negative air ions (NAI) are capable of evoking a wide range of responses in bacteria, protozoa, higher plants, insects and animals, as well as in humans. However, their precise mechanism of action is uncertain. There is ...
Protective Effects of Leflunomide on Intestinal Ischemia-Reperfusion Injury Leflunomide against intestinal ischemia-reperfusion
Aim The aim of this study was to investigate the possible protective effects of leflunomide, which has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, against intestinal IR injury in rats. Materials and Methods Forty female ...
