We investigated whether there is any relationship between biochemical and clinical parameters of migraine and methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene C677T polymorphism, associated with the migraine subtypes, symptoms, and gender. A total of 150 migraine patients with and without aura (MA and MO) and 107 non-sufferers were included in the study.(More)
In a penciling-induced epilepsy model, Wistar rats (16 males, 16 females) were i.p. administered with an extract of Salvia miltiorrhiza (SmE; total dose 50 mg/kg) once a day for 15 days. The rats were divided into four equal groups, control and SmE-treated for each sex. After the treatment period, an epilepsy model was produced by penicillin G injection(More)
Migraine is a common neurological disorder characterized by recurrent attacks, unilateral head pain, and related symptoms. The aim of this study was to investigate three endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) polymorphisms in 176 patients with migraine and 123 healthy individuals. Clinical and biochemical parameters were investigated. Genetic analysis was(More)
We investigated gender-dependent differences of genistein (isoflavone phytoestrogen) treatment in a penicillin-induced experimental epilepsy rat model. Twenty-eight adult Wistar Albino rats (14 females and 14 males) were devided into four groups, control and genistein-treatmed males and females. Genistein (100 μg/kg, i.p) or saline was given during 15 days(More)
Mongolian gerbils (28 males) were divided into four groups, control (C), treadmill-exercised (Ex), treated with the extract of Diospyros kaki (Dk), and exercised plus treated with the Dk extract (Ex+Dk). Animals of the respective groups were running-exercised for 30 min per day during 8 weeks, and the Dk extract (dose 20 mg/kg) was given by gavage during(More)
An increase in ionic strength (IS) lowers Ca2+ activated tension in muscle fibres, however, its molecular mechanism is not well understood. In this study, we used single rabbit psoas fibres to perform sinusoidal analyses. During Ca2+ activation, the effects of ligands (ATP, Pi, and ADP) at IS ranging 150–300 mM were studied on three rate constants to(More)
BACKGROUND Pectus excavatum (PE) is the most common chest wall deformity. The Nuss Questionnaire modified for Adults (NQmA) is a disease-specific health-related quality of life assessment tool for patients with pectus deformities. The aim of this study is to adapt the NQmA into Turkish. METHODS Two hundred and sixty-five patients with PE were(More)
The effect of-158 (C>T) Xmn I polymorphism on expression of G-globin gene has been the subject of considerable interest. This study aims to determine the frequency of the G Xmn I polymorphism in -thalassemia patients in Denizli province of Turkey. We studied Xmn I polymorphism in the DNA samples of 27 with -thalassemia major, 210 -thalassemia minor(More)
In this study, we investigated the relationship between cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pressure and hematological parameters in twenty one idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) patients recruited from the patients' We carried blood and CSF examinations to exclude other disorders known to cause increased intracranial pressure. The relationship between CSF(More)
