Major depression (MD) has a complex multifactorial etiology with genetic and environmental factors contributing to the disorder. As with all antidepressant treatments, there is variability in drug response due to heredity, generally focusing on genetic polymorphism of the drug-metabolizing transporter genes. The serotonin transporter (5-HTT) gene is a(More)
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), whose genetic basis is not completely well understood, is the most common endocrine disorder in women and it typically develops during adolescence. The aim of this study is to investigate the possible association between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of FSHR, CYP17, CYP1A1, CAPN10, INSR, SERPINE1 genes and PCOS in(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the role of serotonin transporter gene (SLC6A4) polymorphism in tinnitus. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifty-four consecutive patients experiencing subjective tinnitus and 174 healthy controls were allocated for the study. Psychoacoustic parameters of tinnitus were measured. Beck Depression Inventory was used to assess the depression level(More)
We measured the levels of serum carotenoids (beta-carotene), total tocopherol (vitamin E), ascorbic acid and malondialdehyde (MDA) in newly diagnosed cancer cases. Levels of the antioxidants and MDA in serum samples from 208 subjects with cancer affecting different sites (59 breast, 38 head and neck, 46 genitourinary, 12 lung, 20 gastrointestinal and 33(More)
Intravenous lipopolysaccharide (LPS) leads to acute lung injury (ALI) in rats. The purpose of this study was to examine the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant efficacy of ketamine, propofol, and ketofol in a rat model of ALI. We induced ALI in rats via intravenous injection of LPS (15 mg kg(-1)). The animals were randomly separated into five groups: control,(More)
Diabetes mellitus is a multifactorial metabolic disease, caused by the complete or relative absence of insulin hormone, which results in the deterioration of carbohydrate, protein, and lipid metabolism. The PON1 55 and 192 polymorphisms have been reported to be associated with type 2 diabetes and its complications. In this study, the involvement of the PON1(More)
The numerical abnormalities of human metaphase chromosomes, fixed according to standard procedures for optical microscopy but not treated for banding, were detected by atomic force microscopy (AFM). High-resolution AFM imaging of chromosomes in trisomy 13, 21, and Klinefelter syndrome can be compared directly with the traditional optical image. The unbanded(More)
Human papillomavirus (HPV) has been implicated strongly with human cervical, anal and penile cancers. The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was used to detect HPV in cervical specimens of 88 women working at the public whorehouse. Using consensus primers which encode the L1 region of the HPV genome, the presence of HPV DNA was demonstrated in 2 specimens.(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the association of GJB2 gene mutations with cochlear implant performance in children. METHODS Sixty-five consecutive children who underwent cochlear implantation due to congenital profound senseurineural hearing between 2006 and 2008 were included in the study. In children, GJB2 gene mutation analysis was performed. Their auditory(More)
