BACKGROUND In this study we compare the Omalizumab treatment modality in the dynamics of cell apoptosis regulating molecules in both severe persistent asthma patients who had no other any allergic disease, newly diagnosed patients with allergic asthma, and healthy volunteers. MATERIAL/METHODS Severe persistent allergic asthma patients were subjected to(More)
BACKGROUND Lung cancer causes the highest rate of cancer-related deaths both in men and women. As many current treatment modalities are inadequate in increasing patient survival, new therapeutic strategies are required. TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) selectively induces apoptosis in tumor cells but not in normal cells, prompting its current(More)
BACKGROUND We evaluated the profiles of allergic rhino-conjunctivitis and asthma patients annually in Antalya, a Mediterranean coastal city in Turkey. MATERIAL AND METHODS We evaluated patients' allergic clinical status, and recorded the climate and pollens in the city center air, investigating any correlation between pollination, climatic conditions and(More)
BACKGROUND Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease and omalizumab is indicated for moderate-to-severe persistent asthma. The results of many studies have shown that oxidative stress is involved in asthma pathogenesis. However, there is no data available to evaluate the alterations in total antioxidant capacity, hydrogen peroxide, malondialdehyde, and total(More)
Objectives. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is characterized by the chronic inflammation of the synovial joints resulting from the hyperplasia of synovial cells and the infiltration of lymphocytes, macrophages and plasma cells. Currently, the aetiology of RA is not known, and new treatment modalities are needed to prevent the disease progression. Apoptosis(More)
BACKGROUND The changes and correlations of TRAIL (TNF-related apoptosis-inducing-ligand) and CXCL8 (IL8) prior to treatment and three months following therapy as well as the corresponding Positron emission tomography (PET/CT) (SUV(max): standardized uptake maximum values) results were evaluated. MATERIAL AND METHODS The measurements were taken before and(More)
Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer and the third leading cause of cancer-related death. Bevacizumab is a humanized monoclonal antibody developed against vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) for the treatment of metastatic cancer. The parameters of RECIST (Response Evaluation Criteria for Solid Tumors) are not adequate to detect important(More)
BACKGROUND Allergic asthma is showed an increase in Th2-cytokine and IgE levels and an accumulation activation of Th2 cells, eosinophils and mast cells. However, recent studies focused on cell-based mechanisms for the pathogenesis of allergic asthma. Objectives. In this study, we compare the anti-IgE treatment modality in the dynamics of immune system(More)
BACKGROUND Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a chronic autoimmune inflammatory disorder. Although the pathogenesis of disease is unclear, it is well known that T cells play a major role in both development and perpetuation of RA through activating macrophages and B cells. Since the lack of TNF-Related Apoptosis Inducing Ligand (TRAIL) expression resulted in(More)
