1. Evaluation of the Immunomodulatory Effect of Curdlan on Maturation and Function of Mouse Spleen-Derived Dendritic Cells

Mohammad Hashem Soltani; Tahereh Kalantari; Mohammad Hossein Karimi; Nasrollah Erfani; Eskandar Kamali Sarvestani

Volume 9, Issue 3 , Summer 2012, , Pages 168-174

  Background: T helper 1 and T helper 17 cells play important roles in immunity against foreign invaders. Differentiation of these Th subsets is affected by state of maturation and cytokines that are produced by dendritic cells (DCs). Curdlan is a linear (1→3)-β- glucan and has shown activity ...  Read More

Volume 9, Issue 2 , Spring 2012, , Pages 109-118

  Background: Malassezia furfur is alipophilic yeast that causes skin disease. Objective: To evaluate the level of IL-10, IFN-γ and IL-12P70 in co-incubation of M. furfur grown on different forms of natural oils with PBMCs of healthy individuals. Methods: PBMCs were obtained from blood samples of ...  Read More

3. Immune Responses against a New HIV-1 p24-gp41/pCAGGS-IL-12 DNA Vaccine in Balb/c Mice

Fatemeh Roodbari; Farzaneh Sabahi; Mohamad Nabi Sarbolouki; Farzaneh Barkhordari; Ahmad Adeli; Amel Jamedar; Fereidoun Mahboudi

Volume 9, Issue 2 , Spring 2012, , Pages 86-97

  Background: Development of an effective vaccine is highly needed in order to restrict the AIDS pandemic. DNA vaccines initiate both arms of immunity without the potential of causing disease. HIV-1 p24 and gp41 (gag and env) proteins play important roles in viral pathogenesis and are effective candidates ...  Read More

4. Detection of IL-4, IL-6 and IL-12 Serum Levels in Generalized Aggressive Periodontitis

Maryam Robati; Ardeshir Ranjbari; Mehri Ghafourian Boroujerdnia; Zahra Chinipardaz

Volume 8, Issue 3 , Summer 2011, , Pages 170-175

  Background: Periodontitis is a multifactorial chronic inflammatory disease characterized by destruction of tooth-supporting tissues. Environmental and genetic factors as well as the immune system participate in this process. Recent studies have attempted to elucidate the role of cytokine networks involved ...  Read More

5. IL-10 and IL-12 Production in Response to Mycobacterium Tuberculosis Total Lipid Antigens in Multidrug-Resistant Tuberculosis

Ali Shams Shahemabadi; Ahmad Zavaran Hosseini; Shapour Shaghasempour; Mohammad Reza Masjedi; Majid Rayani; Majid Shams; Nasrin Esphandyari; Majid Pouramiri

Volume 7, Issue 1 , Winter 2010, , Pages 57-63

  Background: Mycobacterium tuberculosis lipid antigens take part in pathogenicity of the bacterium but the response of monocytes/macrophages to these antigens in tubercu-losis is not well known. Objective: The aim of current investigation was to study the M. tuberculosis lipid antigens in tuberculosis ...  Read More

6. Effects of T-2 Toxin on Cytokine Produc-tion by Mice Peritoneal Macrophages and Lymph Node T-Cells

Kazem Ahmadi; Majid Riazipour

Volume 5, Issue 3 , Summer 2008, , Pages 177-180

  Background: T-2 toxin is a mycotoxin of type A trichothecenes produced by several fungal genera such as Fusarium species. Mycotoxins can affect both cell mediated and humoral immune compartments. Objective: The purpose of this study was to investi-gate the effect of T-2 toxin on cytokine production by ...  Read More
