  Title Modeling neurological disorders by human induced pluripotent stem cells Type Journal Article
  Year 2011 Publication Journal of Biomedicine & Biotechnology Abbreviated Journal J Biomed Biotechnol  
  Volume (down) 2011 Issue Pages 350131

  Abstract Studies of human brain development are critical as research on neurological disorders have been progressively advanced. However, understanding the process of neurogenesis through analysis of the early embryo is complicated and limited by a number of factors, including the complexity of the embryos, availability, and ethical constrains. The emerging of human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) has shed light of a new approach to study both early development and disease pathology. The cells behave as precursors of all embryonic lineages; thus, they allow tracing the history from the root to individual branches of the cell lineage tree. Systems for neural differentiation of hESCs and iPSCs have provided an experimental model that can be used to augment in vitro studies of in vivo brain development. Interestingly, iPSCs derived from patients, containing donor genetic background, have offered a breakthrough approach to study human genetics of neurodegenerative diseases. This paper summarizes the recent reports of the development of iPSCs from patients who suffer from neurological diseases and evaluates the feasibility of iPSCs as a disease model. The benefits and obstacles of iPSC technology are highlighted in order to raising the cautions of misinterpretation prior to further clinical translations.

  Title Pathologic fractures: a neglected clinical feature of parathyroid adenoma Type Journal Article
  Year 2010 Publication Case Reports in Medicine Abbreviated Journal Case Report Med  
  Volume (down) 2010 Issue Pages 357029  
  Keywords  
  Abstract The pattern of clinical presentation of primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT) has changed dramatically from a severe disease to an asymptomatic condition in Western countries. The story is completely different in Eastern countries. Bone and joint related sign and symptoms like bone pain and multiple fractures are common in these patients. Imaging and nuclear medicine studies will be helpful specially in patient who candidate for surgical removal of the abnormal parathyroid gland. Here, we present a 48-year-old man with multiple typical fractures in long bones and a single adenoma in his right inferior parathyroid gland. pHPT is a severe, symptomatic disease with serious complications and high morbidity in Iran. Advanced skeletal disease is the most common pattern of presentation.

  Abstract Since the breakdown ofthe communist world, capitalism has been considered as the unrivalled model of economy and society–a conviction deeply rooted (not only) in Western culture (Miller 2005). The late 1980s and early 1990s saw a widespread ascendancy of.
