AIM Paraoxonase-1 (PON1) is an antioxidant enzyme located in high density lipoprotein (HDL). PON1 was defined as a protective factor against atherosclerosis. The aim of this study was to investigate the possible relationship between serum paraoxonase (PONase), homocysteine thiolactonase (HTase) activities and PON1 Q192R polymorphism, and the extent and(More)
BACKGROUND Fragile X syndrome (FXS) is the most common inherited form of intellectual disability. Since the identification of the responsible gene (FMR1) and its protein (FMRP), there has been enormous progress in both clinical and pathogenetic research on the neurobehavioural aspects of the condition. However, studies regarding other medical problems(More)
The aim of this prospective clinical study is to evaluate the relationship between changes in functional cardiac parameters following anthracycline therapy and carbonyl reductase 3 (CBR3p.V244M) and glutathione S transferase Pi (GSTP1p.I105V) polymorphisms. Seventy patients with normal cardiac function and no history of cardiac disease scheduled to undergo(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of clozapine on regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) and its relationship with response to treatment. In addition, we aimed to study the influence of clozapine on proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy ((1)H-MRS) findings in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) in a subgroup of patients.(More)
Neuropsychological deficits are among the main symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS), which could be related to impaired cerebral blood flow (CBF). We conducted a study in 20 subjects tested in our Sleep Laboratory, to assess regional CBF and cognitive function in OSAS. Our measurements included technetium-99m hexamethylamino propylenamine(More)
Very few have been reported on children with differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC), although 15% of them are diagnosed below 20 years of age. Children with DTC present with more advanced disease; however, they have a more favorable outcome. In this paper, we aimed to present the data in our institution on pediatric DTC patients, making an emphasis on the risk(More)
PURPOSE To test the association of genes involved in anterior segment development in a family with autosomal dominantly inherited Peters' anomaly (PA) with a unique ocular phenotype. METHODS Six members of a five-generation family with PA were extensively phenotyped and linkage analysis of candidate genes, namely, PAX6, PITX2, FOXC1, CYP1B1 and MAF, was(More)
OBJECTIVE Radiology information system (RIS) is basically evolved for the need of radiologists and ignores the vital steps needed for a proper work flow of Nuclear Medicine Department. Moreover, CT/MRI oriented classical PACS systems are far from satisfying Nuclear Physicians like storing dynamic data for reprocessing and quantitative analysis of colored(More)
Subtraction ictal single photon emission tomography (SPET) co-registered to magnetic resonance imaging (SISCOM) is an ictal-interictal brain perfusion SPET subtraction method, developed for evaluation of brain perfusion changes applied for the identification of epileptic foci. The aim of this study was to test whether regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF)(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to document the impact of renin-angiotensin system (RAS) polymorphisms on renal haemodynamics and renal hormones in type 2 diabetes mellitus. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifty-nine adult patients were studied. Renal haemodynamics were evaluated using 99mTc-MAG3 clearance (MAG3( Cle)) using Bubeck's method and captopril(More)
