The aim the present study was the quantitative analysis of a potential fungal toxin, patulin in various samples of juice supplied from a commercial apple juice factory in Southwest area of Iran. For this purpose 150 samples of apple juice (local product) from the Southwest reign of Iran, were taken. Ten milliliter of each sample was dissolved in 5 mL buffer. The samples were treated by C18-SPE cartridge and analyzed by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) using UV detector. Results showed level of patulin were higher than 10 μg L-1 in 90% of apple juices. Overall 13/3% of the apple juice samples had levels higher than 50 μg L-1 with maximum level of 106/01 μg L-1. The mean concentration of patulin in apple juice was 26/92 μg L-1. The results of this study showed not significant proportion of the patulin exceeding the 50 mg L-1 limit for apple juice set by WHO and certain European countries. However, constant surveillance of the patulin is strongly recommended because the available data is limited and the hot weather conditions in this area, incidence and level of this toxin could change according to factors like weather conditions, pH, type and stage of apple maturation. © 2010 Academic Journals Inc.

Introduction: Hematological parameters are vital in diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of many disease and health conditions. But the reference values of these parameters are influenced by various factors including race, environmental and physiologic conditions. Referring to others reference intervals or indetermination the intervals for specific populations may causes the irreparable injuries and this is of specific importance in pregnant women due to the importance of mother and fetus health. This study was performed with aim to determine the reference values of complete blood counts (CBC) during third trimester of pregnancy in Dorud. Methods: this cross-sectional study was performed on 351 pregnant women referred to Narges hospital at Dorud city in 2013. A blood sample was taken from each individual with EDTA anticoagulant. Blood cell count, hemogolubin, hematocrit and red blood cell indices were determined using a cell counter sysmex caliber. The leulocyte differential count was performed by providing the peripheral blood smear. The data analysis was performed using SPSS software (version 15), variance analysis, and chi-square test. PResults: Mean Hb concentration as a factor that was analyzed in many studies was 13.02 gr/dl in this study. Also mean White Blood Cell and Platelets cell concentration were 10.16 and 213(p>0/05). Conclusion: the changes in the measured factors are similar to other studies. But, the reference intervals were different, meaning that different areas may have different reference intervals for blood factor determination. Therefore, this study needs to be conducted in different parts of country. © 2015 - Journal Management System. Created by sinaweb.

Introduction: Magnesium (mg) depletion plays a key role in the path physiology of diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular disease, arrhythmia and cardiopulmonary bypass. ATRIAL and ventricular arrhythmias are among the most common complications after coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. Our objective was to detect the relationship between the level of magnesium and arrhythmia in non diabetic and diabetic patients who underwent CABG. Methods: In this descriptive, cross-sectional study, the plasma level of magnesium was measured in 434 diabetic patients who underwent CABG in NAFT Hospital of Ahwaz. Spectrophotometer was used to measure the plasma level of magnesium. Glycosylated of hemoglobin was also measured as a glycemic control index. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and t-test. Results: The mean concentration of magnesium in type 2 diabetic patients in pre and post CABG was 1.68 ±.79 and 1.37 ±.26 (p = 000). The mean concentration of magnesium in non diabetic patients in pre and post CABG was 2.53 ±1.9 and 1.93 ±.6 (p = 0.39). There were significant negative correlation (p =0.037) between levels of Mg and arrhythmia, in other hand there was significant positive correlation between levels of Mg and HbA1c (p =. 004). Conclusion: According to the results of this and previous studies, we recommend routine serum Mg determination and more attention to hypomagnesaemia patients to prevent further complications.
