    Abstract
    Crohn's disease and celiac disease belong to a group of autoimmune conditions that affect the digestive system, specifically the small intestine. They both attack the digestive tract and share many symptoms. Thus, the discovery of proper methods would be a major step toward differentiating celiac disease from Crohn's disease. The aim of this study was to search for the metabolic biomarkers to differentiate between these two diseases. Proton nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H NMR) was employed as the metabolic profiling method to look for serum metabolites that differentiate between celiac disease and Crohn's disease. Classification of celiac disease and Crohn's disease was done...

    Abstract
    Parkinson's disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disease, which is not easily diagnosed using clinical tests and the discovery of proper methods would be a major step towards a successful diagnosis. In the present study, we employed metabolic profiling using proton nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy to find metabolites in serum, which are helpful for the diagnosis of PD. Classification of PD and healthy subject was done using random forest. Serum levels of selenium measured by atomic absorption spectrometry in PD group were lower than the serum selenium levels in the control group. The metabolites causing selenium changes in PD patients were identified using random forest, and a model... 

    Experimental investigation of poly-β-hydroxybutyrate production by azohydromonas lata: Kinetics and artificial neural network modeling

    Abstract
    Batch culture of Azohydromonas lata was investigated for the production of intracellular poly-b-hydroxybutyrate (PHB). In order to determine the C:N value of the culture media for maximizing the microbial productivity of PHB, different concentrations of glucose and ammonium chloride were used as carbon and nitrogen sources, respectively. The optimal temperature and shaking rate was obtained at 30_C and 180 rpm, respectively. The maximum intracellular PHB concentration obtained was 5.09 g/l, which was 20% (w/w) of the cell dry weight (CDW) after 72 h. Also, the synthesis of PHB was growth associated with the C:N ratio of 153.71. The maximum calculated Yp/s was 0.212 (gr/gr) and the specific... 

    Magnetic micellar nanocarrier based on pH-sensitive PEG-PCL-PEG triblock copolymer: a potential carrier for hydrophobic anticancer drugs

    , Article Journal of Nanoparticle Research ; Volume 20, Issue 10 , 2018 ; 13880764 (ISSN) Pourjavadi, A ; Dastanpour, L ; Mazaheri Tehrani, Z ; Sharif University of Technology
    Abstract
    In this research, we report a magnetic pH-sensitive polymeric micelle designed for hydrophobic drug carrier in cancer treatment. This carrier was prepared by self-assembly of biodegradable triblock copolymer PEG-PCL-PEG coated on oleate-modified magnetic nanoparticles. The amphiphilic triblock copolymer was synthesized via reaction between the aldehyde group from the hydrophilic component with the amine group of the hydrophobic component. The resulting Schiff base linkage was sensitive to pH. The structure of nanocarrier was characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) and proton nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H-NMR). Morphology and size of the magnetic...
