Catalase (antioxidant enzyme) activity in erythrocytes and serum levels of trace elements (copper, iron, zinc), heavy metals (cadmium, cobalt) and vitamins A (retinol), D (cholecalciferol) and E (alpha-tocopherol) were measured in 145 subjects comprising 47 pre-eclamptic pregnant women (PE), 48 healthy pregnant women (HP) and 50 healthy non-pregnant(More)
AIM In the present study, we aimed to assess serum concentrations of zinc (Zn), copper (Cu), iron (Fe), cadmium (Cd), lead (Pb), manganese (Mn), vitamins A (retinol), D (cholecalciferol) and E (α-tocopherol) in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) and to compare with healthy controls. METHODS A total of 30 CAD patients and 20 healthy subjects were(More)
BACKGROUND Accelerated atherosclerosis is the major cause of mortality in patients on chronic haemodialysis (HD). The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between oxidative DNA damage [8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine/deoxyguanosine ratio (8-OHdG/dG ratio)], oxidative stress biomarkers and endothelial function in HD patients as an indicator of(More)
Oxidative stress is accepted as a nonclassical cardiovascular risk factor in chronic renal failure patients. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relation between oxidative DNA damage (8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine/deoxyguanosine [8-OHdG/dG] ratio), oxidative stress biomarkers, antioxidant enzymes, and carotid artery intima-media thickness (CIMT) in(More)
OBJECTIVES Early diagnosis and prevention is very important for lung cancer patients. Previous studies have emphasized that the level of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), present primarily in mitochondria, decreases with age and is low in patients with chronic diseases. Our goal was to find out if there is any relationship between lung cancer and CoQ10 and lipid(More)
PURPOSE The main aim of our investigation is to show possible changes in antioxidant balance and selected biochemical parameters in esophageal cancers. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study was performed for the determination of levels in 25 patients diagnosed as having cancer in the Yuzuncu Yil University (Medical Oncology) and 15 healthy volunteers at same(More)
INTRODUCTION Radiation therapy (RT) is a major treatment modality, and the central nervous system is a dose-limiting organ in clinical RT. This experimental study aims to present the evaluation of the neuroprotective effects of erythropoietin (EPO) against oxidant injury following brain irradiation in rats. MATERIAL AND METHODS Forty Wistar rats were(More)
PURPOSE OF INVESTIGATION In this study we aimed to measure the activity of catalase, which is an antioxidant enzyme, the concentrations of some trace elements and heavy metals, and vitamin A, D and E levels in serum samples of patients with hydatidiform mole, normal pregnancies and healthy non pregnant women. METHODS Seventy-two women were enrolled in(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the activities of serum paraoxonase-1 (PON1) and arylesterase (ARE), and the lipid profile in newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS Thirty-two persons (16 of AML and 16 of healthy control) were included to the study. PON1 and ARE activities were measured as spectrophotometrically in serum(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the relationship between antioxidant status and T-cell activation in the pathogenesis of eclampsia by measuring the activities of erythrocyte catalase, an enzyme of antioxidant mechanism, and serum adenosine deaminase (ADA), regarded as a marker of T-cell activation. METHODS A total of 60 patients [20 eclamptic (E) pregnant women, 20(More)
