  Background and Objective: Drought is one of the factors that affect medicinal plants and on the other hand, the role of mycorrhizal fungi was effective in improving the performance of some medicinal plants exposed to water stress. For this purpose, an experiment was conducted as split-plot in randomized complete block design with 3 replications in the Boyerahmad region at years 2015 and 2016. Materials and Methods: The experiment factors were considered of irrigation levels (main-plot) as irrigation after S1 = 30, S2 = 60, S3 = 90, S4 = 120 and S5 = 150 mm water evaporation from evaporation pan class A and mycorrhiza fungi (sub-plot) were considered at the levels of non application (NM), application with mycorrhiza fungi species of Glomus mosseae (GM) and Glomus intraradices (GI). Results: Results showed that the effect of year on the studied traits of borage was not significant but the interaction of water stress and mycorrhizal fungi on chlorophyll a, chlorophyll b, total chlorophyll, carotenoids, flowers phosphorus, grain phosphorous and leaf relative water content of borage were significant. Irrigation after 30 and 60 mm evaporation from pan evaporation+without and the use of mycorrhizal fungi of water Glomus mosseae and Glomus intraradices proportion to irrigation after 150 mm evaporation from pan evaporation+without application and the use of mycorrhizal fungi increased studied characteristic of borage. Conclusion: The results of this study was showing to decrease in the properties of borage medicinal plant as a result of drought stress but the application of mycorrhizal fungi could increase borage traits in drought stress conditions in the study and decrease of the negative effects of drought stress.

  The current study focused on the effects of anxiety on balance index in young female university students. A group of 15 female students with a high anxiety score (higher than 42 in Spielberger’s score) and a group of 15 female students with a low anxiety score (lower than 42 in Spielberger’s score) were recruited in this study. The Anteroposterior (AP), Mediolateral (ML) and the overall dynamic Stability Index (SI) of the subjects were recorded by use of a Biodex stabilometer (Biodex Stabilometer System, USA) and were compared with each other. The results revealed a significant difference between the two groups. The subjects with a high anxiety score showed a stability index higher than those in low anxiety group (p<0.005) which simply means significantly less stability in this group. In conclusion, this study showed a less stability index existed in subjects with higher anxiety scores. It could be inferred from the results that carrying out a state anxiety assessment concurrently with a clinical balance test certainly help clinicians to predict the hidden associated instability disorders of the patients.

  General responses to drought and salt stress was investigated in two Plantago species including Plantago ovata and P. psyllium. Seeds were treated with aqueous solutions of 0, -0.2, -0.4, -0.6 and -0.8 Mpa NaCl and iso-osmotic concentration of polyethylene glycol 8000. NaCl of -0.6 and -0.8 Mpa caused more delay in germination than the iso-osmotic solution of PEG. However, germination frequency was strongly affected by drought and salinity stress, such that only 20% of the P. ovata and 30% P. psyllium seeds germinated in -0.6 Mpa Osmotic Potential (OP) during the first week of incubation. The rate of germination was decreased with an increase in osmotic potential in both drought and salinity stress, however drought had much effect on the rate of germination. All treatment of NaCl and PEG were inhibitory to root and shoot elongation of seedlings in both species relative to the distilled water controls; however, NaCl affected seedling root and shoot elongation more severely specially in P. ovata. Recovery of their germination capacity after transferring the treated seeds to distilled water was determined and in all cases except in OP of -0.2 Mpa, high germination frequencies of more than 80% were observed after 1-2 week of incubation in distilled water.

  In this study antiplasmodial activity of Peganum harmala was assessed against isolates of Chloroquine -sensitive and Chloroquine-resistant plasmodium falciparum, collected from southeast of Iran, in comparison with Chloroquine. Peganum harmala extract in four serial dilutions including 12.5, 25, 50 and 100 μg mL-1 and chloroquine with 8 picomol/well in the test well were evaluated using in vitro method on 23 blood samples from patients infected with Plasmodium falciparum. All of four serial dilutions of Peganum harmala extract could inhibit parasite growth (p<0.05). In comparison with Chloroquine at doses of 12.5 and 25 μg mL-1, it was less effective than Chloroquine, while 50 and 100 μg mL-1 had almost similar results to Chloroquine. P. harmala in doses of 50 and 100 μg mL-1 could decrease Significantly schizont formation of those two strains of P. falciparum parasites which were resistant to chloroquine.
