The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that postconditioning (POC) would reduce the detrimental effects of the acute intestinal ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) compared to those of the abrupt onset of reperfusion. POC has a protective effect on intestinal I/R injury by inhibiting events in the early minutes of reperfusion in rats. Twenty-four(More)
Indoor air (VOCs) samples were collected simultaneously from variety of indoors (e.g. living rooms, baby’s rooms) and outdoor environments which were voluntarily selected from the houses in which pregnant residents live throughout Ankara. This is the first comprehensive study done in Turkey starting from prenatal period and continued till the babies had one(More)
Particulate matter (PM) in ambient air is responsible for adverse health effects in adults and children. Relatively little is known about the concentrations, sources and health effects of PM in indoor air.

We investigated whether 3-aminobenzamide (3-AB), a poly(ADP-ribose) synthetase (PARS) inhibitor, reduces bacterial translocation (BT) after intraperitoneal endotoxin administration. Wistar rats were randomized to receive intraperitoneal saline (control, n = 6); endotoxin (n = 8); 3-AB (n = 6); and 3-AB plus endotoxin (n = 8). Six hours later, to evaluate(More)
