Crosstalk between H1975 tumor cells and platelets to induce the proliferation, migration and tube formation of vascular endothelial cells

Activated platelets (PLTs) take part within the regulation of tumor angiogenesis, and tumors can activate PLTs. Whether or not co-culture of lung carcinoma with PLTs improves the perform of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) requires additional investigation. The current research aimed to analyze the impression of H1975 cell crosstalk with PLTs on the proliferation, migration and tube formation of HUVECs. Following era of...

Prevalence of occult hepatitis C virus infection in beta-thalassemia major patients in Ahvaz, Iran

Occult hepatitis C virus infection (OCI) is defined by the presence of HCV RNA in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) and liver tissue cells despite the absence of HCV RNA in plasma. Currently, OCI is classified into two types: seropositive OCI (anti-HCV positive and serum HCV RNA negative) and seronegative OCI (anti-HCV and serum HCV RNA negative). Beta-thalassemia is described as a blood disorder that decreases the synthesis of...
