    School of Public Health and Institute of Public Health Research, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran
    J Virol Methods 142:95-7. 2007
    ..This increased sensitivity can improve the detection of enterovirus serotypes which grow poorly in cell culture, and can thus alter significantly the medical care of patients with acute flaccid paralysis...

    Zabih Ollah Shoja
    School of Public Health and Institute of Public Health Research, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran
    J Clin Lab Anal 21:232-6. 2007
    ..Also, the rapid detection of enteroviruses by RT-PCR can decrease both the unnecessary use of antibiotics and the costs in clinical practice. For this reason, we find that RT-PCR is a more practical technique for enterovirus detection...
  3. pmc Seroprevalence of Human herpesvirus 8 (HHV-8) and incidence of Kaposi's sarcoma in Iran
    Somayeh Jalilvand
    Research center of Iranian blood transfusion organization, Tehran, Iran
    Infect Agent Cancer 6:5. 2011
    ..A global survey on HHV8 seroprevalence in Iran is mandatory to define co-factors associated with HHV8 infection and KS risk in the general Iranian population and in specific patient groups...

    Somayeh Jalilvand
    School of Public Health, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran
    Virus Res 163:644-9. 2012
    ..In conclusion, HHV-8 variants identified among classic Iranian KS are largely related to Eurasian genotypes previously identified in KS from Mediterranean, Middle East, and East Asian regions...
