Abstract Background and objectives: Herpes simplex virus type two (HSV-2) infections are mostly considered as a sexually transmitted disease. It causes genital herpes, newborn herpes non-pyrogenic meningitis and may act as an underlying factor for HIV infection. This study was conducted to determine the sero-epidemiologic prevalence of herpes simplex virus type two in cases referred to ten clinical laboratories of Gorgan. Materials and methods: This cross- sectional study was performed on blood Samples of 406 randomly selected Clients. These samples were analyzed for Anti HSV-2 using Specific enzyme-Linked immunoassays (ELIZA) Results: Four point nine percent of all subjects have anti HSV-2. There is Significant difference between sero-positive HSV-2 and factors such as age and Marital Status (P<0.05). Conclusion: HIV is progressively increased and HSV-2 infection is one of the major risk factors for HIV therefore, decreasing the prevalence of HSV-2 infections may Leads to the reduction of HIV prevalence. Key word: HSV-2, Antibody, Gorgan, Sero-epidemiology.

Abstract Backgrounds and objectives: Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV- 1) infections are mostly shown as a Herpes disease, but It causes conjunctivitis, genital herpes, encephalitis and newborn herpes. This study was conducted to determine the sero-epidemiologic prevalence of herpes simplex virus type 1 in cases referred to clinical laboratories of Gorgan, Iran. Material and methods: In this cross sectional study, we did random blood sampling on 406 cases referred to the Gorgan citychr('39')s clinical laboratories. These samples were analyzed for HSV-1 Immunoglobulin G and M antibodies using type- specific enzymelinked Immunoassays (ELISA). Results: Of 406 participants, the HSV-1 seroprevalence is 49% (44.3% and 4.7% for IgG and IgM respectively). There is not significant relationship between seropositive HSV-1 and gender, ethnicity, age and marital status. Conclusion: Sero-epidemiological of HSV-1 in Gorgan is the same of the other places in Iran, but it is higher than European and lower than African countries. It seems that the people’s culture is very important. Therefore it needs to be investigated more. Keywords: HSV-1, Antibody, Gorgan.

Abstract Background and objectives: Infection has a Leading role in pregnancy. Cytomegalovirus (CMV), listeria and Toxoplasma are the most common causes of infection in human. Based on the previous researches, about 15-25 percent of being infected during pregnancy leads to some complications such as abortion, fetal death, early labor and etc. This study was designed to determine the seroprevalence of Cytomegalovirus (CMV), Toxoplasma gondii and Listeria moncytogenes among pregnant women in Gorgan, north of Iran (2005-2006). Material and Methods: we conducted this Simple randomized study on 118 unsuccessful pregnant woman and 99 successful ones referred to Deziani hospital in Gorgan. We assayed both IgG and IgM antibodies for CMV and Toxo by Elisa and IFA method for Listeria. In addition, we fill out a Check list and then use SPSS soft ware, chi square to analyze the data. Results: The frequency of IgG for CMV and Toxo is 89.9% and 45.5% in successful pregnant women and 77.1% and 44.1% for unsuccessful pregnant women (P=0.41, P=0.01). IgM frequency for CMV and Toxo is 14.1% and 46.5% in successful women and 30.5 and 21.7% in unsuccessful ones. (P=0.003, P=0.002)Total frequency (IgG, IgM) for Listeria is 7.62% and %3.03 in successful and unsuccessful women, respectively. There is a significant relation between abortion and IgM titer against Toxoplasma in successful and unsuccessful groups. (P=0.003).This relation is true for total antibody titer against Listeria (P=0.003). Conclusion: Because of high titer of antibodies against CMV, Toxo and Listeria in unsuccessful pregnant women, suffering from these agents during pregnancy may result in abortion and fetal death. Hence, we recommend to hold some preventive and educational program and also to assay antibodies against theses agents.

Abstract Background and objectives: After respiratory infection, Diarrhea is the second cause of mortality. Yersinia enterocolitica is the second important cause of infectious diarrhea in children of some countries. In this study, we evaluated the frequency of Yersinia entocolitica of diarrheal specimens in Gorgan, Iran. Material and Methods: This descriptive cross - sectional Study was carried out on diarrheal stools of 455 patients referred to medical centers and laboratory of Gorgan in 2004-2005. DNA extraction using phenol chloroform was performed for all samples. Using two specific primers (genus-specific16s rRNA and ail- specific species genus of Yersinia enterocolitica), we did PCR sample. Results: Yersinia genome was identified in 12 patients(2.63%) and 11 of them was Yersinia enterocolitica. The frequency infection in of girls (3%) was more than boys (2.4%), and the prevalence in winter (4%) was more them other seasons, and under one- year- group (3.4%) and 1-5 years (3.1%) is more than other age groups. It was not observed significant difference. (P> 0.05). Conclusion: The frequency of Yersinia in cases of diarrhea in Gorgan is similar to most regions of Iran and in children under 5 years is observed more in winter.
