Sara Assadiasl; Pedram Ahmadpoor; Mohsen Nafar; Mahboob Lessan Pezeshki; Fateme Pourrezagholi; Mahmoud Parvin; Abtin Shahlaee; Adel Sepanjnia; Mohammad Hossein Nicknam; Aliakbar Amirzargar

Volume 11, Issue 3 , Summer 2014, Pages 139-152

  Background: Regulatory T cells have been suggested to have a protective role against acute rejection in allograft recipients. However, there is little information available about their contribution to chronic rejection process. The role of transforming growth factor-beta 1 (TGF- β1) as a profibrogenic ...  Read More

Afsoon Shariat; Mohammad Hossein Karimi; Talat Mokhtariazad; Seyed Mohammad Moazzeni; Bita Geramizadeh; Seyed Ali MalekHosseini; Ramin Yaghobi

Volume 11, Issue 3 , Summer 2014, Pages 153-165

  Background: Dendritic cells (DCs) are potent antigen presenting cells for triggering of the immune reaction post transplantation. These cells are centrally involved in the initiation of T cell-dependent immune responses. Objective: To compare the level of DC maturation and function in liver transplant ...  Read More

3. Optimizing Dendritic Cell Preparation for Fusion with Melanoma Cells

Yang Li; Lu Zhang; Shouyu Wang; Peng Shi; Wei Qu

Volume 11, Issue 3 , Summer 2014, Pages 166-176

  Background: Fusion of dendritic cells (DCs) with melanoma cells could reinforce the antigenicity of tumors as a strategy for the treatment of malignant melanoma. However, the insufficient quantity of DCs and the low fusion efficiency limits the development of such approach. Objective: To define the ...  Read More

4. Immunomodulatory Effects of Mice Mesenchymal Stem Cells on Maturation and Activation of Dendritic Cells

Ladan Sadeghi; Eskandar Kamali-Sarvestani; Negar Azarpira; Mehrdad Shariati; Mohammad Hossein Karimi

Volume 11, Issue 3 , Summer 2014, Pages 177-188

  Background: Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) possess a wide range of immunomodulatory functions mostly in immune cells including dendritic cells (DCs). DCs are the key cells in the immune response and play an important role in initiating cell-mediated immunity. Objective: To evaluate the immunomodulatory ...  Read More

5. Improved Immunogenicity of Tetanus Toxoid by Brucella abortus S19 LPS Adjuvant

Mohsen Mohammadi; Zahra Kianmehr; Sussan Kaboudanian Ardestani; Behnaz Gharegozlou

Volume 11, Issue 3 , Summer 2014, Pages 189-199

  Background: Adjuvants are used to increase the immunogenicity of new generation vaccines, especially those based on recombinant proteins. Despite immunostimulatory properties, the use of bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS) as an adjuvant has been hampered due to its toxicity and pyrogenicity. Brucella ...  Read More

6. Serum TNF-α, IL-10 and IL-2 in Schizophrenic Patients Before and After Treatment with Risperidone and Clozapine

Abolghasem Ajami; Farshideh Abedian; Seyyed Hamzeh Hosseini; Elahe Akbarian; Reza Alizadeh-Navaei; Mehrdad Taghipour

Volume 11, Issue 3 , Summer 2014, Pages 200-209

  Background: Schizophrenia is a disorder of the executive function of both sensory and central nervous system. Recent studies suggest that immune mechanisms play a role in the pathophysiology of this disease. The variations in cytokine concentrations have been associated with psychopathology and treatment ...  Read More

7. Correlation between Salivary Toll Like Receptor-2 Concentration and Early Childhood Caries

Beheshteh Malekafzali; Mandana Sattari; Sanaz Keyvanfar

Volume 11, Issue 3 , Summer 2014, Pages 210-216

  Background: Early childhood caries (ECC) is a common health problem in the developing countries. Basic knowledge about the etiology and pathogenesis of ECC plays an important role in its prevention. Objective: To determine the relationship between salivary TLR-2 concentration and early childhood caries ...  Read More

8. Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia in a Patient with Probable Ataxia Telangiectasia: A Case Report

Soheila Alyasin; Maryam Khoshkhui; Farhad Abolnezhadian

Volume 11, Issue 3 , Summer 2014, Pages 217-220

  Background: Ataxia telangiectasia (AT) is one of the combined immunodeficiency syndromes with immunologic, neurologic, endocrinologic, hepatic and cutaneous abnormalities. Regarding the fact that autoimmune disorders; such as autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA), are not generally expected in the course ...  Read More
