Recent studies show that melatonin reduces the blood pressure (BP) and ischemia/reperfusion (I/R)-induced damage. This study was designed to investigate the effects of melatonin on the renal I/R injury in rats given the nitric oxide synthase (NOS) inhibitor, N(omega)-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME). After right nephrectomy, I/R was induced by(More)
Background: Leptin is important for the regulation of energy metabolism. Fatty acids are essential components of all biological membranes and represent an important form of energy storage in both animals and plants. In addition to leptin’s central effects on appetite control and energy expenditure, it has been shown to have a strong influence on fatty acid(More)
In this study, the rabbits were injected subcutaneously with a new thiosemicarbazone thiazole ring containing a Schiff base, 1-(1-mesityl-1-methylcyclobutane-3-yl)-2-suksinimido etanon thiosemicarbazone, (25 mg/ kg body weight), and then sacrificed after 2 th, 8 th, 16 th , 60 th days of being injected. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of(More)
The genus Salvia, with about 900 species, is one of the most widespread members of the family Lamiaceae. Some of them are used worldwide as flavoring and in folk medicines and are listed in modern pharmacopoeias [1–3]. Turkey is an important country for export and usage of Salvia species in the world [4]. There are 89 species and 98 taxa of Salvia recorded(More)
BACKGROUND Inhibition of fatty acid synthase leads to apoptosis in cancers, which leads to high levels of fatty acid synthesis. This indicates that cancer cells depend on fatty acid in order to survive. In this study, we investigated whether or not there was a relationship between the glial tumor grade and free fatty acid level of tumor tissue. METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The aims of this study are to assess the reasons of using sphygmomanometers at pharmacies and to evaluate their accuracy. METHODS 135 devices (118 aneroid, 1 mercury, and 16 automated) from 125 pharmacies (located in Samsun city center) were included in the study. A non-randomized, cross-sectional design was used for the study protocol(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of transferring open-heart surgery patients from the operating room to the intensive care unit on hemodynamic parameters and blood gases. METHODS The study was conducted as a prospective, observational study at the German Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey in 2007. Hemodynamic, blood gas values, and oxygen saturation measured by(More)
