Background6-thioguanine (6-TG) is one of the thiopurine drugs with successful use in oncology, especially for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). 6-TG is proposed to act as an epigenetic drug affecting DNA methylation. The aim of this study was to clarify the effect of 6-TG on the proliferation, viability and expression of genes coding for the enzymes DNA methyltransferase 3A and DNA methyltransferase 3B (DNMTs) as well as histone deacetylase 3 (HDAC3) in the human B cell-ALL cell line Nalm6.Mat...
Background: Hematogones are normal B-cell precursor which can be seen in different physiological and pathological conditions. Due to variation in B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL) blasts immunophenotyping and interference of hematogones in minimal residual disease (MRD) assessment, precise discrimination of hematogones is very crucial. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the expression pattern of surface markers in hematogones and compare them with lymphoblasts. Material and Meth...
BackgroundNausea and vomiting are the common side-effects of chemotherapy in children with malignancy. In this study, the effectiveness of vitamin B6 in reducing the chemo-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) in children was tested.Material and methodsA triple-blind clinical trials was performed on 100 children with malignancy referring to the pediatric clinic of Amir Kabir Hospital, Arak, Iran. Besides the infusion of granisetron (3mg/3ml) half an hour before each chemotherapy cycle, an intraveno...
BackgroundDue to the estrogen participation in modulating the proliferation and commitment of stem cells and the effects of miR-21 and miR-155 expression on reduced proliferation and colony formation of acute myeloid leukemia (AML), the aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of estradiol on expression of miR-21 and miR-155 in the NB4 cell line, as an acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL).Materials and MethodsIn the present experiment, NB4 cells were treated with different quantities of...
Improved survival among transfusion dependent thalassemia patients in recent years has led to the manifestation of morbidities such as renal dysfunction. Renal injury is still an underestimated complication in β thalassemia major patients. Chronic anemia, iron overload due to repeated transfusion, and specific iron chelators are the main factors in pathogenesis of renal dysfunction in β thalassemia. Early identification of this morbidity allows us to delay the progression of kidney damage and th...
