BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to investigate oxidant/antioxidant status by determining serum ischemia-modified albumin (IMA) levels with oxidative/antioxidant parameters in patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) compared to the controls. METHODS The serum concentrations of IMA, IMA/albumin ratio (IMAR), malondialdehyde (MDA), total oxidant status(More)

Amino acid composition of the whole body tissue of Axillary seabream (Pagellus acarne) was determined. Fish was catched from Dardanelles (April 2013) via fishing line. The most abundant amino acid was Glutamic Acid (11.0 g/100 g crude protein) and Valine was the most abundant essential amino acid (6.2 g/100 g crude protein). The total essential amino acid(More)
Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) virus can cause potentially fatal infections in humans. During this disease, cytokines are intensive released. Resistin which is a good marker of inflammation is an adipocytokine released from adipose tissue. We aimed to investigate whether serum resistin level in patients with CCHF has a prognostic value in predicting(More)
