OBJECTIVE To compare the efficacy of cabergoline (Cb2) and meloxicam in curbing vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression and preventing ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS). DESIGN Randomized controlled, animal study. SETTING Academic facility. SAMPLE We used a total of 50 immature Wistar female rats randomly to create an experimental(More)
BACKGROUND Pneumoperitoneum (Pp) induces an ischemia and reperfusion (I/R) injury as a result of released oxidative stress markers. Ischemic preconditioning (IP) is one of the used methods to reduce the harmful effects of Pp, which is a mechanism for reducing organ I/R injury by a brief period of organ ischemia. The aim of this study was to investigate the(More)
We aimed to explore the effects of ischaemic preconditioning (IP) used to reduce ischaemic injury during laparoscopy on ovarian apoptosis and p53 expression. A total of 32 rats were randomly allocated into four groups consisting of eight in each as follows: Group I was subjected to a sham operation without pneumoperitoneum (Pp). Group II was subjected to 5(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the association between high-risk human papillomavirus (HPV) types and soluble interleukin-2 receptor (sIL-2R) levels in female sex workers with a negative cervical smear result, and to determine the effectiveness of using sIL-2R levels to screen for high-risk strains of HPV. METHOD A negative cervical smear result and a blood(More)
In our study, we investigated the influence of plasma levels ghrelin, leptin and other metabolic hormones (ILGF-1 and ILGF-2) in pregnants in regulating fetal body weight and mode of delivery. A total of 36 appropriately healthy pregnants 19–36-year-old were involved in the study. Demographic chracteristics, serum ghrelin, leptin, IGF-1 and IGF-2 levels of(More)
Epignathus is a congenital tumor and a rare type of teratoma. It is associated with midline abnormalities. In our case the teratoma was of oropharyngeal origin, extending to cervical region, inhibiting the growth of maxillary and mandibular bones and tongue. No treatment could be applied. Although there are few cases of epignathus reported to be treated(More)
