Although the sensitivity and specificity of nucleic acid amplification assays are high with smear-positive samples, the sensitivity with smear-negative and extrapulmonary samples for the diagnosis of tuberculosis in suspicious tuberculosis cases still remains to be investigated. This study evaluates the performance of the GenoType Mycobacteria Direct (GTMD)(More)
BACKGROUND Pandemic influenza A (H1N1) was a serious health problem during the winter of 2009-2010 in Turkey. OBJECTIVE To clarify the clinical and demographic characteristics of patients who needed intensive care in our region. METHODS We conducted a prospective cohort study from November 2009 to February 2010 of demographic characteristics, clinical(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY Determining the pre-treatment prognostic factors in malignant pleural mesothelioma is important in terms of estimating the course of the disease and selecting patients who are candidate for multimodal therapy. The aim of the study was to determine the prognostic factors affecting survival in patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma. (More)
The 17-year-old male patient presented with fever, weakness, dyspnea and weight loss. His chest radiography demonstrated diffuse reticulonodular density, and high-resolution lung tomography indicated diffuse micronodules and prevalent ground-glass pattern. The findings were consistent with miliary involvement. The patient underwent examinations for(More)
In this study, Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex was detected by BD ProbeTec ET system in 4716 respiratory and 167 nonrespiratory samples [mostly (98%) smear negative). Sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative predictive values were 81.8%, 98.3, 85.1 and 97.9 for respiratory and 100%, 96.2, 64.7 and 100, for nonrespiratory samples, respectively.(More)
In certain types of cancer, increased serum protease inhibitor levels were identified and clues showing that, serum levels of protease inhibitor could be used in the assessment of prognosis and dissemination of tumor were obtained. We aimed to reveal whether serum alpha-1-antitrypsin (AAT) and alpha-2-macroglobulin (AMG) levels of patients with lung cancer(More)
OBJECTIVES Our study aimed to compare the effectiveness of a pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) program between hypercapnic and normocapnic patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). METHODS Hypercapnic (Group 1) and normocapnic (Group 2) patients with COPD who participated in this study underwent a comprehensive 8-week out-patient PR program.(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to compare the effects of pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) on six-minute walk test (6mWT) between chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients with moderate or severe carbon monoxide diffusion defects. We also evaluated dyspnea sensation, pulmonary functions, blood gases analysis, quality of life parameters and(More)
