Chao Li; Dexue Ma; Mingming Zhang; Liyan An; Chenchen Wu; Hongchao Zhou

Volume 17, Issue 3 , Summer 2020, , Pages 175-184


  Background: Endotoxin, widely present in the living environment of humans and animals, leads to endotoxemia during a short period. However, the long-term effects of endotoxin on immune function are unclear. Objective: To determine the importance of long-term endotoxin treatment on function of immune ...  Read More

2. Symptomatic Reactivation of HSV Infection Correlates with Decreased Serum Levels of TNF-α

Mohammad Motamedifar; Jamal Sarvari; Azin Ebrahimpour; Amir Emami

Volume 12, Issue 1 , Winter 2015, , Pages 27-34

  Background: Herpes simplex viruses (HSV) are human pathogens that establish lytic and latent infections. Reactivation from latency occurs intermittently, which represents a life-long source for recurrent infection. The role of immune factors in the control of recurrent symptomatic HSV lesions is complex ...  Read More

3. Simultaneous Detection of IgA/IgG AntiTissue Transglutaminase/Deamidated Gliadin Peptides in Serodiagnosis of Celiac Disease

Marco Di Tola; Mariacatia Marino; Rossella Casale; Marta Puzzono; Caterina Urciuoli; Antonio Picarelli

Volume 12, Issue 1 , Winter 2015, , Pages 74-80

  Background: Celiac disease is a common autoimmune disorder that is diagnosed based on clinical case identification, serological screening, and duodenal histology. However, the existence of mild clinical forms, such as seronegative cases with patchy atrophy and potential celiac disease, can make it difficult ...  Read More

4. IgG Avidity Test for the Diagnosis of Acute Toxoplasma gondii Infection in Early

Shabnam Pour Abolghasem; Mohammad Reza Bonyadi; Zohre Babaloo; Abolfazl Porhasan; Behroz Nagili; Omid Ali Gardashkhani; Parviz Salehi; Mohammad Hashemi; Mojtaba Varshoghi; Gafar Olade Gaffari

Volume 8, Issue 4 , Autumn 2011, , Pages 251-255

  Background: Toxoplasmosis is well known as an important infection in pregnant women. Although many serologic methods are available, diagnosis of early Toxoplasmosis may be extremely difficult. Objective: To detect the Toxoplasma IgG antibodies developed at the early stage of infection in pregnant women. ...  Read More

5. IgM, IgG, IgA Serum Levels and Lymphocytes Count Before and After Adenotonsillectomy

Abolhassan Faramarzi; Azra Shamsdin; Abbas Ghaderi

Volume 3, Issue 4 , Autumn 2006, , Pages 187-191

  Background: Tonsils and adenoids are involved in both local immunity and immune surveillance for the development of immune defense mechanisms. A number of investigators have found decreased immunoglobulin levels after adenotonsillectomy while others have failed to find significant changes. The effects ...  Read More

6. Immune Response Following Oral Immunization with BCG Encapsulated in Alginate Microspheres

Faramarz Dobakhti; Soheila Ajdari; Mohammad Taghikhani; Shahnaz Rafiei; Khosrow Bayati; Mortez Rafiee-Tehrani

Volume 3, Issue 3 , Summer 2006, , Pages 114-120

  Background: Different methods have been used for BCG vaccination. Alginate microspheres are useful in delivery of vaccines to the gastrointestinal tract by oral route. Objective: To compare the immune response following oral microencapsulated and subcutaneous (SC) route administration of BCG vaccine ...  Read More

7. The Role of Immune System in Idiopathic Anterior Uveitis

Mansour Rahimi; Morteza Najafi

Volume 3, Issue 2 , Spring 2006, , Pages 91-94

  Background: Idiopathic anterior uveitis is an anterior segment inflammation in which a detailed medical history, general and ocular physical examination is not associated with any defined clinical syndrome. Alterations in immune system parameters have been reported in patients with idiopathic posterior ...  Read More

8. Sero-surveillance of Measles in Iranian Army Students after Nationwide Revaccination in 2004

Kazem Ahmadi; Gholam Ali Ghorbani

Volume 3, Issue 1 , Winter 2006, , Pages 35-42

  Background: Decay of vaccine–induced antibody titres without boosting of the wild measles virus has been well documented. Revaccination against measles has reduced the prevalence of the disease worldwide. Revaccination may cause IgE induced anaphylaxis. Objective: To study measles IgG antibody ...  Read More

9. Evaluation of the Serum Levels of Immunoglobulin and Complement Factors in b-thalassemia Major Patients in Southern Iran

Objective: In this study, we have assessed the humoral immune system in 68 thalassemic patients by ...  Read More

10. Glycation of Human IgG Induces Structural Alterations Leading to Changes in its Interaction with Anti-IgG

Mohammad Taghi Goodarzi; Safyieh Ghahramany; Mohammad Hossien Mirmomeni

Volume 2, Issue 1 , Winter 2005, , Pages 36-42

  Background: Glycation of proteins is a non-enzymatic spontaneous process that occurs in diabetes mellitus and aging, altering the structure and function of proteins. IgG undergoes glycation leading to changes in its reactivity to antigen and fixation of complement.   Objective: This study aimed ...  Read More

11. Placental Transfer of Respiratory Syncytial Virus-Specific IgG in Iranian Mothers
