Seyed Hossein Mousavi
International Journal of Academic Research in Business and Social Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: Due to the role of sports in youth social adjustment and social skills in their interpersonal relationships and social skills associated with academic achievement and their role in reducing mental and psychological problems ,we conducted this study to examine the role of physical activity in different sport fields. In order to compare the social skills of male students participating in the team and individual sports in Islamic Azad University of Zanjan, we chose 30 randomly as the sample size. In order to gather information, two questionnaires-i-e-demographic questionnaire and social skills questionnaire (social adjustment section) Albert J. Petitpas F (2004) with a reliability of 0.90 were used. For data analysis, descriptive statistics and T-test were used. Results showed significant differences between team and individual sports athletes with the soccer ranking higher than the rest of the field. Gymnastics athletes would have better social adjustment than the rest of athletes and the rowing athletes had less social adjustment, but this difference was not statistically significant and the results showed no significant relationship between age and marital status with the Social Adjustment. The results of this study confirm a considerable effect of team sports on levels of social adjustment compared with individual sports.

International Journal of Academic Research in Business and Social Sciences , 2011,
Abstract: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the intramural department in the Islamic Azad University of district 8 based on SWOT Model. The statistical population was all university students in this area of whom 750 people were selected randomly based on Morgan sample size table. Results showed that students believed using the SWOT assessment model can be effective. It also became clear that the students’ involvement in the implementation of appropriate sporting activities and facilities could be the opportunities and strengths of these programs. Lack of attention to the needs of students in planning activities along with the use of doping cases in the students were the most important weakness and threats of intramural activities in those universities.

Hossein Kazemeini, Ardeshire Khosravi, Seyed Jaber Mousavi, Aminda Amanolahi, Saeede Aghamohammadi
Open Journal of Preventive Medicine (OJPM) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojpm.2015.511049
Abstract: Introduction: To adequately measure population health, a health information system is essential. The main rationale for collecting routine data on population health is to provide information and evidence for designing and assessing health programs and to ensure that their objectives are being met. Accidents are one of the most predictable issues that constitute a major social and economic burden amongst communities, particularly in developing countries such as Iran. Methods: Among the available data provided by health information system, data on mortality are commonly used not only as health indicators but also as socioeconomic development indices. In Iran, two organizations, the National Organization for Civil Registration (NOCR) and the Ministry of Health and Medical Education (MOH&ME) currently operate death registration systems. In this research, a cross-section of accident-cause of mortality data from the Ministry of Health and Medical Education in the year 2004 to 2010 was employed. Results: The highest rate of injury caused deaths was due to road traffic accidents in all these years and in both sexes. Traffic accidents were first in the ranking of unintentional accidents, the next ranking were burns, sudden intoxication with drugs and toxicants and fall in order. The proportion of deaths due to accidents in relation to the total number of deaths due to unintentional injuries was 69.9 in 2006, 66.3 in 2007, 66.3 in 2008, 68.2 in 2009 and 65.5 in 2010. Discussion: From 2006 to 2010, two thirds of injury-caused deaths were related to transport accidents. Although no significant changes are observable in 5 years, we can observe a gradual decrease in death. Conclusion: As we can see in this research, the first rank in injuries is related to road traffic accidents. This should be as a priority for various organizations and policy makers should find an appropriate and logical solution to resolve this problem.

Health (Health) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/health.2016.84038
Abstract: Background: Nowadays cardiovascular diseases remain as the single most common cause of death in chronic dialysis patients; the aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of two different regimens of dialysis potassium removal in patients with a tendency to develop arrhythmias during haemodialysis (HD). Methods and Materials: There were 88 (36 men and 52 women) end stage renal disease (ESRD) patients recruited for the study. They received regular haemodialysis three times per week at the haemodialysis units of a university medical centre (Golestan hospital) during year 2011. We compared the arrhythmogenic effects of two dialysis techniques. Results: There was a tendency in the HD solution with constant (3 mEq/l) K for premature ventricular complex (PVC) appearance in to be reduced as compared with constant (2 mEq/l) K in the time of dialysis period, although this reduction was not statistically significant(P = 0.09). There was a significant reduction in SVC in the HD solution with constant (3 mEq/l) K as compared with constant (2 mEq/l) K. Discussion: In conclusion, the use of a model of intra-HD potassium that is more close to potassium serum concentration of ESRD patients can reduce the arrhythmogenic effect of HD in patients on regular HD treatment.
Could MDMA Promote Stemness Characteristics in Mouse Embryonic Stem Cells via mGlu5 Metabotropic Glutamate Receptors?
Rokhsareh Meamar,Fereshte Karamali,Seyed Ali Mousavi,Hossein Baharvand
Cell Journal , 2012,
Abstract: Objective: Ecstasy, or 3, 4 (±) methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA), is a potent neurotoxic drug. One of the mechanisms for its toxicity is the secondary release of glutamate. Mouse embryonic stem cells (mESCs) express only one glutamate receptor, the metabotropic glutamate receptor 5 (mGlu5), which is involved in the maintenance and self-renewal of mESCs. This study aims to investigate whether MDMA could influence self-renewal via the mGlu5 receptor in mESCs.Materials and Methods: In this expremental study, we used immunocytochemistry and reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) to determine the presence of the mGlu5 receptor in mESCs. The expression of mGlu5 was evaluated after MDMA was added to mESCs throughout neural precursor cell formation as group 1 and during neural precursor cell differentiation as group 2. The stemness characteristic in treated mESCs by immunofluorescence and flow cytometry was studied. Finally, caspase activity was evaluated by fluorescence staining in the treated group. One-way ANOVA or repeated measure of ANOVA according to the experimental design was used for statistical analyses.Results: In this study mGlu5 expression was shown in mESCs. In terms of neuronal differentiation, MDMA affected mGlu5 expression during neural precursor cell formation (group 1) and not during neural precursor differentiation (group 2). MDMA (450 μM) induced a significant increment in self-renewal properties in mESCs but did not reverse 2-methyl-6(phenylethynyl) pyridine (MPEP, 1 μM), a non-competitive selective mGlu5 antagonist. Fluorescence staining with anti-caspase 3 showed a significant increase in the number of apoptotic cells in the MDMA group.Conclusion: We observed a dual role for MDMA on mESCs: reduced proliferation and maintenance of self-renewal. The lack of decreasing stemness characteristic in presence of MPEP suggests that MDMA mediates its role through a different mechanism that requires further investigation. In conclusion, despite being toxic, MDMA maintains stemness characteristics.

Journal of Environmental Protection (JEP) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/jep.2011.27114
Abstract: Life on the earth is dependent on dynamic interactions between its physical, chemical and biological components. In fact, all the individual processes are responsible for regulating the environmental equilibrium which can provide biosphere for multiple forms of human life. In order to overcome on shortcomings, the use of immobilized cell bioreactor technology which provides a valuable effective for treatment of waste water is discussed. An immobilized system which in this matter is applied is about absorbed or captured microorganisms in a solid substratum to retain them in a reactor or analytical system. The multiply of these immobilized cells is done when by nutrients be supplied and then migrate to the surfaces which are referred to biofilms. The biofilms can be developed on various support systems such as polypropylene pall, rocks, sands, charcoal, ceramics, and glass beads. The controllable reaction vessels which are used for these colonized surfaces are referred to bioreactors. Bioreactors in both up flows and down flows mode which use of either batch or continuous processes principle can be operated. Synchronic with development in biotechnology, there is also an extensive development in the field of bioreactors like: pumped tower loop reactor (PTLR), liquid impelled loop reactor (LILR), multipurpose tower bioreactor (MTB), fluidized-bed and packed-bed bioreactor, that in this article are discussed them.
