OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to investigate the long-term effects of torture in a group of former political prisoners. METHOD The study was carried out in Istanbul, Turkey, where 55 Turkish political activists who had been tortured were compared with a closely matched group of 55 activists who had not been tortured. The Structured Clinical Interview(More)
MOTIVATION The discovery of solid-binding peptide sequences is accelerating along with their practical applications in biotechnology and materials sciences. A better understanding of the relationships between the peptide sequences and their binding affinities or specificities will enable further design of novel peptides with selected properties of interest(More)
4-Amino-2-[(5-arylamino-4,5-dihydro-1,3,4-thiadiazol-2-yl)methyl]-5-(4-methylphenyl)-2,4-dihydro-3H-1,2,4-triazol-3-ones (3a-c) were obtained in acidic media via the formation of 2-[(4-amino-3-aryl-5-oxo-4,5-dihydro-1H-1,2,4-triazol-1-yl)acetyl]-N-arylhydrazinecarbothioamides (2a-c), and then, compound 3b was converted to methylated derivative, 4. The basic(More)
Objective We assessed the feasibility and acceptability to patients of a telephone-supported self-care intervention for depression among adults aged 40 years or over with one of six targeted chronic physical illnesses and comorbid depressive symptoms in family practice settings. Methods An open, uncontrolled trial (feasibility study) was conducted among(More)
PURPOSE Obinutuzumab (GA101), a novel glycoengineered type II anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody, demonstrated responses in single-arm studies of patients with relapsed/refractory non-Hodgkin lymphoma. This is the first prospective, randomized study comparing safety and efficacy of obinutuzumab with rituximab in relapsed indolent lymphoma. The primary end point(More)
An exploratory analysis of 75 follicular lymphoma patients treated with obinutuzumab or rituximab induction therapy (IT) for 4 weeks in the phase II GAUSS study aimed to determine whether positron emission tomography (PET) results could predict progression-free survival (PFS) and tumor response. The proportion of patients with a PFS event (progression or(More)
The behaviour of brain capillary endothelium to the passage of macromolecules in single and repeated seizures conditions and its relationship to the brain trace element concentrations are the main subject of this study. For this purpose, animals were treated with either single or repeated doses of pentylenetetrazole (PTZ). As a marker of blood-brain barrier(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine factors related to long-term psychological functioning in political ex-prisoners who had been subjected to systematic torture. DESIGN The psychological status of 55 tortured political activists, 55 nontortured political activists, and 55 subjects with no history of torture or political activism was assessed using Structured Clinical(More)
Hot water epilepsy (HWE) was induced in freely moving Wistar rats by applying hot water jets over the head region. The status of the blood-brain barrier (BBB) during the seizures and during hot water-induced hyperthermia without seizures was examined using Evans blue dye. In order to investigate the contribution of concomitant factors to this process,(More)
Binding kinetics of platinum-, silica-, and gold-binding peptides were investigated using a modified surface plasmon resonance spectroscopy (SPR). Platinum binding septa-peptides, quartz-binding dodecapeptides, and gold-binding 14-aa peptides were originally selected using phage or cell surface display libraries using the mineral or pure forms of these(More)
