Antioxidant status and lipid peroxidation activity in evaluating hepatocellular damage in children
AbstractSerum levels of glutathione reductase [GR], glutathione S-transferase-alpha [GST-alpha] and malondialdehyde [MDA] were determined to evaluate their use in diagnosing hepatocellular damage in 75 children with liver disease. Except for level of GR in patients with HBV, GR, GST-alpha and MDA were raised significantly in patients compared with controls. At 100% specificity, the sensitivity of the 3 markers for detecting hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus and schistosomiasis infection respectively were: 16.7%, 100.0% and 17.7% for GR; 33.3%, 62.1% and 38.2% for GST-alpha; and 25.0%, 10.3% and 29.4% for MDA. GR was more sensitive in hepatitis C infection, while MDA reflected changes in liver ultrasound and GST-alpha was the best indicator for histopathological changes

Hadaegh, F.; Harati, H.; Ghanbarian, A.; Azizi, F. (2009)This study is the first report on the prevalence of coronary heart disease [CHD] and its associated risk factors in adult residents of Tehran. Standard supine ECG data were collected for 5984 men and women aged > /= 30 years and coded by Minnesota criteria. All major cardiovascular risk factors were also measured. Based on Rose angina, self-reported history of CHD or ECG-defined CHD, the aged-adjusted prevalence of CHD was 21.8% [22.3% in women and 18.8% in men]. Variables independently associated with CHD were female sex, age, systolic blood ...
Waist circumference: a better index of fat location than WHR for predicting lipid profile in overweight/obese Iranian women Shahraki, T.; Shahraki, M.; Roudbari, M. (2009)We carried out a clinical cross-sectional study on 728 overweight and obese women aged 20-60 years during July 2005-May 2006 in Sistan and Baluchestan, Islamic Republic of Iran. Body mass index [BMI] and waist circumference [WC] showed significant correlation with total cholesterol [TC], triglycerides [TG] and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol. After adjustment for age and BMI, this was also true for WC with TC and TG. There was no such correlation between waist-to-hip ratio [WHR] and lipid profile. Hence, WC was a better anthropometric index ...
