  • Success Rate of Hysteroscopy and Endometrial Scratching in Repeated
           Implantation Failure: A Randomized Controlled Clinical Trial

    • Authors: Ziba Zahiri, Yasaman Sarrafzadeh, Ehsan Kazem Nejad Leili, Alireza Sheibani
      First page: 1399
      Abstract: Background: Endometrial receptivity is one of the most important factors in vitro fertilization (IVF) success rate. Many different methods have been suggested to enhance the rate of implantation in IVF\ intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) cycles. Endometrial injury, as an intentional trauma aimed at improving the fertility results, has gained significant popularity among women seeking pregnancy. This study was conducted to determine the success rate of hysteroscopy and scratching before microinjection in cases of repeated implantation failure. Materials and Methods: This prospective, randomized controlled trial consist of 228 women who were referred to the Al-Zahra Infertility clinic for fertility treatment with the history of failure in at least two ICSI cycles. The patients were divided into two groups. The first group was treated by hysteroscopy without intervention, while the second group underwent hysteroscopy and scratching in the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle prior to microinjection cycle. The controlled ovarian stimulation (COS) was performed in all patients using the antagonist method. The success was considered based on the observation of the fetal heart activity in ultrasound. Results: The success rate of hysteroscopy and scratching (41.5%) was higher compared to hysteroscopy alone (34.3%), but this difference was not statistically significant based on the Chi-square test (P=0.280). The rate of miscarriage in hysteroscopy plus scratching and hysteroscopy alone were 5.7% and 12.4%, respectively which were not statistically different (P=888). Furthermore, the effect of hysteroscopy and scratching on visualizing the fetal heart activity was not statistically different compared to hysteroscopy alone (P=0.223). Conclusion: The results showed that the success rate in hysteroscopy plus endometrial scratching was not significantly different from hysteroscopy alone. [GMJ.2021;10:e1399]

  • Uterine Myxoid Leiomyosarcoma with Stromal Chondroid Metaplasia: A Rare
           Case Report

    • Authors: Fatemeh Sari Aslani, Negar Taheri, Fatemehsadat Najib, Mojgan Akbarzadeh-Jahromi
      First page: 1817
      Abstract: Background: Uterine leiomyosarcoma is a rare gynecological disease. Myxoid leiomyosarcoma (mLMS) is an aggressive and very uncommon type of leiomyosarcoma, with few cases reported in English literature. Stromal metaplasia is rare in leiomyosarcoma. Here we present huge uterine myxoid leiomyosarcoma with stromal chondroid metaplasia. Case Presentation: A 48–year–old single woman with lower abdominal pain and increased abdominal circumference. The detected mass on imaging was diagnosed as uterine mLMS with stromal chondroid metaplasia in the histopathological examination after surgery. Conclusion: Myxoid leiomyosarcoma should be considered in uterine mass with extensive myxoid change, infiltrative border, low mitotic count, and mild atypia. Stromal chondroid metaplasia can be seen in the myxoid leiomyosarcoma. [GMJ.2021;10:e1817]

  • Wound Healing Potential of Crocin and Safranal, Main Saffron (Crocus
           sativus L.), the Active Constituents in Excision Wound Model in Rats

    • Authors: Nafise Deldar, Malihezaman Monsefi, Mohsen Salmanpour, Mohadeseh Ostovar, Mojtaba Heydari
      First page: 1900
      Abstract: Background: Saffron is traditionally suggested for wound healing in Persian medicine. It is investigated for wound healing effect in multiple studies with promising results. It is not examined that which ingredient of saffron contributes more to this effect. This study was aimed to evaluate and compare the wound healing potential of saffron and its active constituents, crocin, and safranal, in rats. Materials and Methods: Forty female adult rats with induced excision wounds were randomly divided into four groups to receive topical formulation of saffron, crocin, safranal, and placebo for seven days. The Wound area and histopathologic stage of wound healing were evaluated as outcome measures. Results: The wound area was significantly lower in treatment groups (saffron, crocin, and safranal) compared to the control group on day 7 of the intervention. Compared to the control group, the wound in all treated groups showed a decreased inflammatory response and more progression to the proliferation phase. The saffron group showed more advanced healing phase with complete epithelialization of the wound on day 7 of study when partial and no epithelialization was observed in safranal and crocin groups. Conclusion: The study showed the wound healing properties of both safranal and crocin with the slight superiority of safranal. However, saffron seems to be more potent in wound healing effect compared to safranal and crocin as its main active constituents. [GMJ.2021;10:e1900]

  • A Simple Method for Extraction of Lipopolysaccharides from Brucella
           Melitensis

    • Authors: Sina Vakili, Gholamreza Asadikaram, Alimohammad Behroozikhah, Nesa Khalaf
      First page: 1944
      Abstract: Background: Brucellosis is the most common zoonotic bacterial disease around the world, and its causative agent is Brucella, a gram-negative bacterium. Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) molecules are the most significant surface antigen of Brucella bacteria. This antigen is used in a high number of research and diagnostic fields. The present study was designed in order to introduce a simple method to extract LPS from Brucella melitensis. Materials and Methods: Smooth strains of B. melitensis were cultured in large quantity, and LPS was extracted through changes in the hot-phenol method. The LPS concentration was measured by using the dimethyl-methylene blue method. The contamination rates of proteins and nucleic acids were determined using the bicinchoninic acid (BCA) method and absorbance measurement at 260 nm, respectively. Results: The amount of the extracted LPS was 1.1% of the wet weight of the bacteria. The rate of contamination with nucleic acid was measured to be 0.2% of the LPS. The protein contamination was not detectable through the BCA method. Conclusion: The advantages of our newly-introduced method are considerable decrease in the time required to extract LPS; independence from nucleic acid and protein digestive enzymes; an extraction rate of LPS equivalent to other applied methods; nucleic acid contamination equal or lower than other methods, and no protein contamination; and independence from equipment such as ultracentrifuge and chromatography.

  • Topical Mastic Oil for Treatment of Functional Dyspepsia: A Randomized
           Triple-Blind Controlled Trial

    • Authors: Mahsa Baradaran Sattarzadeh, Asie Shojaii, Mohssen Nassiri Toosi, Mehri Abdollahi-Fard, Foroogh Alborzi Avanaki, Mohammad Taher, Maryam Shiehmorteza, Fataneh Hashem-Dabaghian
      First page: 1965
      Abstract: Background: The main goal of the present study was to evaluate the effect of topical mastic oil, compared to placebo on treatment of functional dyspepsia (FD). Materials and Methods: Sixty-three patients with FD were included. Thirty-two subjects received the topical mastic oil (10 drops/TDS after meal) with massage and 31 patients received topical sesame oil with massage. Both groups received pantoprazole (40 mg daily) along with oil and massage. The severity of early satiation, postprandial fullness, epigastric pain and epigastric burning was assessed after 4 weeks using the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) as well as frequency of symptoms. Satisfaction with the treatment was also assessed using a researcher-made questionnaire. Changes in the severity of symptoms were evaluated by Friedman’s test. Results: Mean and standard deviation of age of the subjects were equal to 36.95±13.64 and 50 (79.4%) patients were female. Both groups experienced a significant decrease in the severity of all the four symptoms (P<0.001). The percentage of decrease in the severity of early satiation was significantly higher in the mastic group than the control group (76.03±34.91% vs. 37.24±38.86%, P=0.003). No significant differences were found in the percentage of decrease in the severity of postprandial fullness, epigastric pain and burning between the study groups (P=0.05, 0.06, and 0.13, respectively). The frequency of symptoms was decreased similarly in both groups. Satisfaction with the treatment was reported to be significantly higher in the mastic group than the sesame group (P=0.01). There were no intolerable side effects in both groups. Conclusion: Mastic oil reduced early satiation better than the placebo. In addition, satisfaction with the treatment was higher in the mastic group than the sesame group. [GMJ.2021;10:e1965]

  • Impact of Jollab on Blood Parameters in Patients with Breast Cancer
           Undergoing Chemotherapy: A Pilot Randomized Controlled Trial

    • Authors: Bahareh Ahadi, Mehdi Pasalar, Hamid Reza Mirzaei, Reyhaneh Gharehgozlou, Ali Tavakoli, Ghazaleh Heydarirad Ahadi
      First page: 1972
      Abstract: Background: In cancer patients, a prominent side effect of chemotherapy drugs is bone marrow suppression, which leads to decreased blood cell production. Herbal remedies and natural substances such as honey may fulfill a role in relieving this complication. The present study aimed to determine the efficiency of Jollab (a honey-based syrup) in the prevention of pancytopenia in female patients with breast cancer undergoing chemotherapy. Materials and Methods: In a pilot double-blinded, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial, 70 patients were examined in terms of leukocyte count, platelet count, and hemoglobin level at the Shohaday-e Tajrish Cancer Clinic (Tehran, Iran) in 2020. The intervention group consumed 10 ml of Jollab syrup three times a day for four weeks, while the control group took a placebo with the same prescription. The independent sample t-test and chi-squared test were used for data analysis in this trial. Results: Our data revealed that the total number of leukocytes, hemoglobin levels, and platelet counts have no significant differences between the two groups at the end of the study, but significant changes were discovered for hemoglobin and platelet levels in intragroup analysis for both intervention and placebo groups. Conclusion: Although the use of Jollab was not found to be effective in augmenting the levels of blood cell parameters in women with breast cancer undergoing chemotherapy, future studies of higher quality may demonstrate its supportive role provided the present limitations are addressed.

      Abstract:
      The infection caused by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) started from China and spread out to the whole world, and became a pandemic as the world health organization declared. COVID-19 has caused many challenges in all aspects of life, including mental health for the entire human beings. The current study has reviewed some important strategies based on individual care and social support. Maintaining healthy lifestyle and doing regular life activities such as enough sleeping, doing art, listening to music, doing yoga, and meditation could be practical for individual care. Some social support strategies may include talking to trusty people or counselors to share emotions, keeping in touch with family, friends, and colleagues, supporting people via calls and texts warmly, and taking care of the elderly, children, and especially medical workers.

      Abstract: Background: Diabetes mellitus (DM) is the most common chronic disease. This disease is the main risk factor for fatal diseases such as myocardial infarction and stroke. As there is no cure for DM, an effective strategy must control it. Every attempt to control DM and patients’ outcomes require a surveillance system to consider the efficacy and safety measures. Fasa Registry on Diabetes mellitus (FaRD) is the first population-based registry for DM in Iran, which aims to provide an accurate description of social, mental health, clinical, and laboratory values of patients in order to consider the management patterns of these patients and discover the degree of adherence to the recommendations. Materials and Methods: The level of plasma glucose characterizes the diagnosis of diabetes (Type I and II). The pregnant women were excluded from this study. Three registrar nurses collected data from demographics, physical exams, past medical history, medication history, and laboratory findings. Results: The pilot phase included the first 381 patients, of which 257 (67.5%) were women, and 124 (32.5%) were men with a mean age of 57.54 ± 12.12 years among subjects, the 347 (94.5%) cases had DM type 2, and 20 (5.4%) ones had type 1. Conclusion: Based on our results, the characteristics of patients suffering from DM indicated that the jobless ones could not afford their medical expenditures; therefore, the majority of the patients were not adherent to the practice guidelines. The achievement of FaRD helps physicians and patients in improved management of the DM. The findings of this pilot study show the FaRD is feasible, and it will make a comprehensive population-based registry for DM in the region. [GMJ.2021;10:e2137]
