Early diagnosis and treatment are important in prevention of tuberculosis (TB) infection. World commonly diagnose pulmonary TB using ZN stain, culture and TST. These tests are either low sensitive or required a long time. Recently intracellular interferon gamma flow cytometry assay has been available for diagnosis of pulmonary TB. We assess this diagnostic method in the diagnosis of pulmonary TB with special concern on... Read more.

Cancer is the major burden of disease worldwide. Each year, tens of millions of people are diagnosed with cancer around the world, and more than half of the patients eventually die from it. In many countries, cancer ranks the second most common cause of death following cardiovascular diseases. With significant improvement in treatment and prevention of cardiovascular diseases, cancer has or will soon become the number... Read more.

Successful recovery from malaria involves striking a balance between counteracting cytokines. The cytokine imbalance contributes to pathological features, but their exact levels have not been elucidated. This study aimed at investigating the role played by circulating cytokines in pathophysiology of cerebral malaria using experimental cerebral malaria (ECM) model by profiling four serum cytokines using cytometric bead...

Human genome project produce vast quantities of data with new sequences being added to Deoxy ribonucleic acid (DNA) databases on an average of once a minute. It is expected that over 1,000 genome will be sequenced within the next 5 to 10 years. Internet access has turned into an important part of any biological study. The extensive range of information available on the internet can save individual researcher time and... Read more.

Studies have shown that allergens are important sensitizing agents in asthma, but the study on prevalence of allergy markers in Nigerian asthmatic patients is scarce. Also, no study on serum concentration of allergen specific immunoglobulin E (IgE) in Nigerian was encountered. This study was therefore designed to investigate this dearth of knowledge. Serum samples of eighty adult asthmatic patients recruited for this... Read more.

The antibiogram and role of antibody in prophylaxis to Escherichia coli O157:H7 infection in albino rats was investigated in this study. 500 stool samples were collected from apparently healthy individuals, out of which 80 were positive for the organism. The sensitivity patterns of the isolate to conventional antibiotics were investigated. Moreover, the role of antibodies to actively or passively protect... Read more.

Schistosomiasis is a parasitic disease, second to malaria, affecting human’s tropics and sub-tropics. The disease condition varies in severity depending on parasite species and strain, organ system infected, geographical region, genetic constitution of the individual and nutritional status. The drug praziquantel has been the choice of drug for the treatment of schistosomisias; however, the effective dose, 450... Read more.

Job’s syndrome is an immunodeficiency disorder with defect in leukocyte chemotaxis in some patients. It is also called hyper IgE recurrent infection syndrome. Major manifestations are pruritic dermatitis, recurrent Staphylococcal pneumonias, mucocutaneous candidiasis, restrictive lung disease, scoliosis with other various features. A 20 year old boy who was presented to us with heart failure, abdominal pain and... Read more.

The Bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG) vaccine is used more than any other vaccines in the world, whereas a lot of studies have spoken about allergy and its relationship with the BCG vaccine. It is believed that many factors can influence this relationship and its symptoms, can be observed via the occurred scar following BCG vaccination. The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between the levels... Read more.

Studies on the biology of immune cells are mainly focused on their role as immune activators and modulators. In their appropriate cultivation and/or modifications, they have shown abilities for an enhanced expression of specific effective molecules. These properties have characterized them as promising candidates for construction of novel safe vaccines and gene-engineering products on their basis. In this aspect, in the... Read more.

The objective of the study is to present a rare case of epidermal cyst of the bony external auditory canal in adult. Epidermal cyst of the bony external auditory canal, though very rare, was kept in the list of differential diagnosis of a skin lined mass of the external auditory canal. A case report method and review of literature was used for the diagnosis. Epidermal cyst is very rare in the... Read more.

This study was applied on 60 TB patients admitted in the Babylon Center of Tuberculosis and Chest Diseases in Hilla, Iraq. TB patients consisted of 38 males and 22 females with 40 healthy individuals as control group. Blood samples were collected from patients and control group to estimate phagocytic index, interferon gamma (IFN-γ), and anti-measles IgG level. The level of anti-measles IgG showed a significant...

Garlic (Allium sativum) was incorporated into diets (0 (control group), 0.5 and 1 g/kg (test groups)) of juvenile hybrid tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus x O. aureus. The fish initial weight was 25.5 ± 1.0 g (mean ± SD) with no significant size difference among the treatments. Innate immune response responses were evaluated for 2 to 4 weeks. Total leucocyte count, respiratory burst,... Read more.

The role of hydroxyl radicals (.OH) damaged immunoglobulin G (IgG) in insulin dependent diabetes mellitus has been investigated. IgG was isolated from normal human serum and modified by hydroxyl radicals, generated by UV irradiation of hydrogen peroxide. .OH-induced modification on IgG has been studied by ultra-violet (UV) absorption spectroscopy, tryptophan/tyrosine fluorescence, circular dichrosim, SDS-PAGE and...

HLA-G is a non-classical HLA-class Ib molecule and has multiple immunoregulatory properties. A 14bp insertion/deletion polymorphism in the HLA-G gene has been suggested to influence the expression of HLA-G and then to associate with certain pathological conditions, including autoimmune diseases. The aim of study was to evaluate the possible association of the HLA-G 14bp insertion (+14bp) and deletion (-14bp)... Read more.
