    The effect of a training program on body composition, growth hormone, insulin and insulin-like growth factor 1 in overweight female college students

    , Article Gazzetta Medica Italiana Archivio per le Scienze Mediche ; Volume 171, Issue 4 , 2012 , Pages 409-416 ; 03933660 (ISSN) Gholipour, M ; Tabrizi, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    Aim. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of a training program on body composition, GH, IGF-1 and insulin in overweight and obese female college students. Methods. The 17 overweight college student females divided into 2 groups: Experimental group (E) with 3 sessions per week, 6 weeks duration (N=9,Age=18.9 ± 1.3,BMI= 28.8 ± 2.6), and non-exercising control group (C) (N=8, Age=19.3 ± 1.8, BMI=26.3 ± 0.9). All measures included Vo2max, body composition, IGF-1, GH and insulin were done at baseline and following the protocol. Results. The calorie intake increased in both groups when compared to the baseline. The Vo2max increased statistically significant in E, and decreased in C.... 

    The acute effects of intermittent treadmill running on hunger and plasma acylated ghrelin concentration in individuals with obesity

    , Article Tehran University Medical Journal ; Volume 69, Issue 2 , 2011 , Pages 125-135 ; 16831764 (ISSN) Gholipour, M ; Kordi, M ; Taghikhani, M ; Ravasi, A ; Gaeini, A ; Tabrizi, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    Background: Body weight is regulated by both food intake and energy expenditure. Ghrelin, a hormone produced by the stomach and pancreas, enhances appetite. This study was undertaken to determine the effects of intermittent treadmill running on acylated ghrelin and appetite in individuals with obesity. Methods: Nine inactive male students, with a mean age of 20.56±0.48 yrs, a body mass index of 32.68±0.84 kg/m2 and a maximum oxygen uptake of 34.21±1.48 ml/kg/min, participated in the study in two trials (control and exercise) in a counterbalanced, randomized design. The protocol included intermittent running with a constant intensity at 65% of VO2 max on a treadmill. Blood samples were... 

    The effect of magnesium supplementation on anthropometric indices: A systematic review and dose-response meta-analysis of clinical trials

    , Article British Journal of Nutrition ; Volume 125, Issue 6 , 2021 , Pages 644-656 ; 00071145 (ISSN) Rafiee, M ; Ghavami, A ; Rashidian, A ; Hadi, A ; Askari, G ; Sharif University of Technology

    Abstract The aim of this study was to determine the effects of Mg supplementation on anthropometric indices consisting of body weight, waist circumference (WC), BMI and body fat percentage. In this systematic review and dose-response meta-analysis, we searched PubMed, Cochrane Library, Scopus, Web of Science and Google Scholar from databases inception up to February 2020 for relevant randomised controlled trials. Quality of evidence was evaluated using the Cochrane Collaboration Tool. All the outcomes of this meta-analysis were pooled using the random effect model. Analysis of dose-response for Mg dosage was carried out using a fractional polynomial model. The systematic review and... 

    Numerical study of the effect of vascular bed on heat transfer during high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) ablation of the liver tumor

    , Article Journal of Thermal Biology ; Volume 86 , 2019 ; 03064565 (ISSN) Mohammadpour, M ; Firoozabadi, B ; Sharif University of Technology

    In this study, the influence of vascular bed comprising terminal arterial branches on heat transfer in a liver tumor exposed to high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is studied numerically. Also, the effect of vascular density on temperature distribution is investigated. A coupled set of acoustics, thermal, and fluid models is used to calculate the temperature distribution in the liver. The numerical model is established based on the Westervelt and bioheat equations along with the Navier-Stokes equations. Moreover, the acoustic streaming effect is included with Newtonian and non-Newtonian flow assumptions. It is found that in a vascular bed comprising terminal arterial branches, the... 

    Oncolytic newcastle disease virus delivered by mesenchymal stem cells-engineered system enhances the therapeutic effects altering tumor microenvironment

    Background: Human papillomavirus (HPV)-associated malignancy remain a main cause of cancer in men and women. Cancer immunotherapy has represented great potential as a new promising cancer therapeutic approach. Here, we report Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) as a carrier for the delivery of oncolytic Newcastle disease virus (NDV) for the treatment of HPV-associated tumor. Methods: For this purpose, MSCs obtained from the bone marrow of C57BL mice, then cultured and characterized subsequently by the flow cytometry analysis for the presence of cell surface markers. In this study, we sought out to determine the impacts of MSCs loaded with oncolytic NDV on splenic T cell and cytokine immune...
