  • Poly-lactic Acid/Gelatin Nanofiber (PLA/GTNF) Conduits Containing
           Platelet-Rich Plasma for Peripheral Nerve Regeneration

    • Authors: Saeed Farzamfar1, Farshid Esmailpour1, Majid Rahmati2, Ahmad Vaez3, Mehdi Mirzaii4, Behzad Garmabi2, Asghar Shayannia2, Majid Salehi5*
      Abstract: Background: Polymeric scaffolds have achieved immense importance in the field of nerve tissue engineering. Methods: In the present study, the combination of thermally induced phase separation (TIPS) and electrospinning methods were used to  fabricate poly- (lactic acid)/gelatin nanofiber/PRP-scaffolds. Several  physical and mechanical tests (weight loss measurement, surface  wettability, porosity, microstructure observation via SEM photography, mechanical tests such as tensile strength, and Young modulus) and cellular assays (MTT assay and DAPI staining) were explored to assess the scaffolds capability to serve as neural guidance conduit. In  this study, we hypothesized that conduits enriched with PRP may  provide a better regenerative environment for nerve tissue repair.  Results: This study suggests that GTNF/PRP incorporated scaffolds revealed better biological and physical properties than PLA only scaffolds. Conclusions: Results indicate that when GTNF/PRP is incorporated  into the PLA scaffolds, resultant mechanical properties, porosity and  cell attachment, and viability in vitro were better than pure PLA.

  • Association of an ACE Gene Polymorphism with Cardiovascular Determinants
           of Physical Performance in Healthy Iranian Men

    • Authors: Ali Reza Khoshdel1, Keivan Majidzadeh-A2, Mehdi Manoochehri3*
      Abstract: Background: Physical performance phenotypes are formed by the interaction of genetic and environmental factors, and gene polymorphisms can influence physical and athletic abilities. An ACE gene insertion/deletion (I/D) polymorphism has been reported to influence physical performance, but its mechanism remains controversial.Methods: The frequency of this polymorphism in 146 healthy Iranian males was determined. Then, the associations between different ACE genotypes with physical performance factors were investigated for 43 of the 146 participants.Results: The frequencies of DD, ID and II genotypes were 38.5%, 41.5%, and 20%, respectively. Although there were no significant associations between the ACE polymorphisms and physical performance factors, the pulse pressure amplification, post-exercise heart rate, and resting heart rate were significantly different between variants with and without the I allele (P=0.02, 0.04, and 0.05, respectively). Furthermore, the ACE polymorphism was a significant predictor of exercise endurance and ventricular function in multivariate analyses (P<0.05).Conclusions: The ACE polymorphism correlated with cardiovascular determinants of physical performance, rather than musculoskeletal factors. Therefore, the ACE I/D polymorphism could not be utilized as a singular genetic biomarker for the assessment of physical performance in the Iranian population. However, a combination of genetic and cardiovascular biomarkers may determine physical performance capacities.

  • Comparing Pilates and Physioball Exercise Regimens on Balance and Motor
           Control in Women with Multiple Sclerosis

    • Authors: Mohammad Hosain Rezvani1*
      Abstract: Background: Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, progressive autoimmune and central nervous system disease. By damaging the myelin sheaths that insulate nerve cell axa, MS disrupts neurological function, leading to various complications, particularly balance disorders. The aim of this study was to the compare the effectiveness of eight sessions of either Pilates or physioball exercise on balance and motor control for women with MS.Methods: Thirty patients with MS (age±SD), who were recruited from the MS Society of Tehran using availability sampling. AParticipants were randomly assigned to one into three groups: pilates exercises (PE), physioball exercise (PBE), or a control group (CG). PE and PBE group members completed a corresponding eight-week training program, consisting of three supervised sessions per week, for 15 to 45 minutes each session. During the same time period, the CG performed their usual daily activities. A sharpened Romberg's test wa used to measured static balance, and motor control was evaluated by the timed up and go test. Both tests were administered to all participants prior to and following the intervention. Repeated measures analysis of variance was used to evaluate the data, with a significance level of P<0.05. Results: Participants in the PE and PBE conditions showed significantly greater improvements in mean balance and motor control scores compared to CG members. However, no significant differences in mean balance or motor control scores were observed when comparing the PBE and PE groups.Conclusions: While both the PE and PBE programs correlated with improved balance and motor control among MS patients compared to the CG. By considering the effectiveness of these training programs, we recommended them as preventive intervention against falls and related injuries. {1.1 [EN] Meaning unclear. Check edit}.

  • Combination of Atorvastatin–Endurance Training Has Positive Effect on
           Apoptosis and Protein Expression of SDF-1α/CXCR4 Axis after Myocardial
           Infarction in Rat's Heart Tissue

    • Authors: Akbar Azamian Jazi1, Hadi Abdi2*, Nabi Shamsaei3, Mehdi Khaksari4
      Abstract: Background: It is a well-known fact that both statins and exercise have beneficial effects in preventing cardiovascular disease; however, no information is available about their combinatorial effect on the cardiac cell apoptosis and protein expression of SDF-1α/CXCR4 after myocardial infarction (MI). This study aimed to evaluate the combined effect of endurance training and atorvastatin on the apoptosis and protein expression of SDF-1α/CXCR4 in the cardiac tissue of rats following MI.Methods: In total, 30 rats (8–10 weeks old, weighing 220–240 g) were randomly divided into five groups. Myocardial infarction was induced by subcutaneous injection of isoprenaline (150 mg/kg) in 2 consecutive days. Drug and training intervention was initiated 2 days after infarction and was continued for 4 weeks. To assess apoptotis and protein expression of SDF-1α/CXCR4 axis, Tunnel and IHC staining were performed, respectively.Results: The combination of endurance exercise and atorvastatin significantly reduced the number of apoptotic cells and increased the protein expression of SDF-1α compared with the other groups (P<0.001). Moreover, this combination significantly increased the protein expression of CXCR4 compared with the control and sham groups (P<0.001) and with the atorvastatin group (P<0.05). Endurance exercise training and atorvastatin, individually induced a significant decrease in the apoptotic cell count (P<0.001) and nonsignificant increase in the protein expression of SDF-1/CXCR4, compared with the control group. Conclusions: Results of this study revealed that the combined effects of training and atorvastatin are more efficient in reducing the apoptosis and upregulation of SDF-1α/CXCR4 than exercise or atorvastatin alone.

  • Comparing the Effect of Garlic and Lemon Mixture with Mucilage of Okra
           

    • Authors: Moussa Abolhassani1, Negin Eftekhari2, Mohammad Hassan Basirinezhad3, Pirasteh Norouzi4*
      Abstract: Background: Cardiovascular disease is one of the main causes of mortality in the world and is primarily caused by high blood lipids. This study aimed to compare the effect of garlic and lemon mixture with mucilage of the okra pods in preventing the increase of plasma lipids in male Ratus.Methods: This study was performed on 34 Ratus norvegicus alluvia. The Ratus were randomly divided into two classes, which were further subdivided in three groups each. A class of Ratus received food mixed with market oils for 60 days. Moreover, the Ratus in the treatment group received 10% okra mucilage and the mixture of garlic and lemon as gavage for 3 weeks. Data were analyzed by SPSS-21 software. The Mann–Whitney nonparametric test was used to compare each pair of groups. A value of 5% was considered as statistically significant.Results: Comparing the control group and the group receiving oil, we observed that lipid intake was effective and significantly increased the blood cholesterol in the oil group (p = 0.006). In Ratus receiving fatty foods, it was observed that treatment regimens reduced blood lipids. Moreover, a significant difference was observed between the two treatment groups, indicating a 10% mucilage advantage in reducing blood lipids compared with other treatment groups.Conclusions: The results indicate that both treatments reduce blood lipids, but 10% mucilage in Ratus with high blood lipids has better efficacy than garlic and lemon mixture in reducing blood lipids.

  • A study of Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction's Effectiveness on
           Marital Satisfaction in Women

    • Authors: Noshirvan Khezri Moqadam 1, Galin Kazerooni 2
      Abstract: Background: Marital satisfaction has been defined as an individual’s attitudes toward their spouse, and the spouses’ relations. Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy makes possible the relation among temper, thoughts and feelings at “the present moment”. By changing and practicing on thinking, we hope through this method that spouses’ relations will improve, and the factors leading to conflicts will be prevented. This study aims to investigate the effectiveness of mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) on marital satisfaction.Methods: This research is a type of semi-experiment, pre-test and post-test with a control group. The statistical society includes all women involved in marital conflict who were referred to the psychological consulting clinics in Kerman. The statistical sample consisted of 30 women in the experiment group and the control group. For collecting information, the ENRICH questionnaire on marital satisfaction was used. Covariance analysis was used to compare the subjects' scores in both groups.Results: Teaching mindfulness in the level P<0.05 led to increased total marital satisfaction and contentment, relations and conflict resolution, and a decreased women idealistic distortion component.Conclusions: Mindfulness conducts the individuals to attain increasing awareness, and changes their relations with thoughts and feelings. Spouses can experience more marital satisfaction through mastering these skills to find solutions to the problems.

  • Effectiveness of Multi-Faceted Training Focused on Spiritual Parenting to
           Mothers on Promoting Spirituality of Overweight Children

    • Authors: Shahnaz Nouhi 1*, Masoud Janbozorgi 2, Mojgan Agah Heris 3, Avisa Najimi 4, Hossein Khastar 5
      Abstract: Background: Growing evidences show that the successful treatment of pediatric obesity requires consideration not only of medical issues but also of psychological and social environmental and familial factors. Special emphasis is given to the psychological and spiritual aspects of pediatric obesity in the context of a holistic perspective. In this regard this study was conducted to determine the effectiveness of multi-faceted training focused on spiritual parenting to mothers on promoting spirituality of overweight children.Methods: In this study, 48 volunteer (24 boy students and 24 their mothers) eligible to exclude-include criteria were selected and randomly assigned into two experimental and control groups. An orientation session was held to explain the research goals and intervention. The experimental group trained, 90 minutes sessions weekly for 3 months (10 sessions), but control group did not receive any intervention. Prior to and after Training, all participant completed demographic information questionnaire and then children completed religiosity and spirituality scale for youth (rassy) scale and childrens' BMI were measured. Data analysis with 22th version of SPSS was done.Results: Data analysis with applying one-way and multivariate analysis of covariance ( ancova and mancova) revealed that Multi-faceted training focused on spiritual parenting could significantly promote the total score and faith-based coping and religious social support/activities but BMI were decreased significantly (P<0.05). Conclusions: The results showed that the multi-faceted training focused on spiritual parenting to mothers leads to promotion of spirituality scores of children with overweight. Also, it seems that the body mass index (BMI) will be reduced. This study demonstrated that spiritual parenting benefits are similar to the dietary restriction and physical activity. And it can cause weight loss and enhance spirituality in children.

  • Sexual Health Promotion Programs in Iran and the World: A Systematic
           Review

    • Authors: Farideh Mohsenzadeh Ledari 1*, Monirolsadat Hosseini Tabaghdehi 2, Leila Hajipour 3
      Abstract: Background: Lack of sexual health promotion programs in adolescents and young people is a significant public health challenge in the field of sexual health. Objectives: the aim of this study was to understand sexual health promotion programs emphasizing life skills such as decision-making and self-assertiveness, with the target of enhancing sexual well-being and including studies to reduce biological adverse outcomes such as STIs or unwanted pregnancy in Iran and globally. Methods: We conducted a systematic review by searching online data bases with the keywords: sexual health; health program; and Iran, using systematic reviews such as MEDLINE and CINAHL, ISI, Scopus, Google scholar, Pubmed med, Google, Magiran, SID, Science Citation Index Expanded, Iran Medex Web of Science, ProQuest, and Springer protocols with a focus on sexual health promotion programs in Iran and in the world. Studies with the inclusion criteria and which were conducted within the past 15 years on determining and designing sexual health programs in Iran and globally were included. After extracting the articles and conferences, the specifications of documents were entered and classified in the EndNote software and duplicate cases were excluded from the study. Results: Based on the findings from the extracted studies, sexual health can be promoted through programs including sexual abstinence education and comprehensive sexual health education.Conclusions: The problem of education and of the required skills for adolescents and young adults regarding self-control and sexual health is a religious or political issue, and includes social issues which involve many different subjects; so resolving this issue requires systematic planning.
