Background. The exact aetiology, growth and rupture of intracranial aneurysms is unclear. In this study we investigated a possible association between intracranial aneurysm rupture and polymorphism of the endothelial nitric oxide synthase gene G894T. Methods. Endothelial nitric oxide synthase gene polymorphism of 53 patients with ruptured intracranial(More)
Adaptor protein complex-4 (AP4) is a component of intracellular transportation of proteins, which is thought to have a unique role in neurons. Recently, mutations affecting all four subunits of AP4 (AP4M1, AP4E1, AP4S1, and AP4B1) have been found to cause similar autosomal recessive phenotype consisting of tetraplegic cerebral palsy and intellectual(More)
Physical training is known to increase the antioxidant defence system and reduce exercise-induced oxidative stress. However, intense physical aerobic and anaerobic training with competition, such as those imposed on young professional basketball players can induce an increase of oxidative stress, which can be implicated with overtraining. The aim of this(More)
Spondyloepimetaphyseal dysplasia (SEMD), Pakistani type, is a skeletal dysplasia characterized by platyspondyly, delayed epiphyseal ossification, mild metaphyseal abnormalities, short stature, and short and bowed legs, and is caused by mutations in PAPSS2. In a single Turkish patient also hyperandrogenism was reported. We describe five patients from a(More)
The body cavities are rarely involved in hairy cell leukaemia. Here we report a patient who had pancytopenia, hepatosplenomegaly, massive haemorrhagic ascites, pleural effusion at the left hemithorax and increased CA 125 serum level at the time of initial diagnosis. Laparoscopy showed multiple nodular white, opaque lesions on the omentum and on the parietal(More)
A 6-month-old female infant presented to our clinic with bilateral eyelid swelling, yellowish-white membranes under both lids, and mucoid ocular discharge. Her aunt had similar ocular problems that were undiagnosed. The conjunctival membranes were excised and histopathological investigation of these membranes showed ligneous conjunctivitis. Further,(More)
This study investigated whether cytokine accumulation in plasma of platelet concentrates obtained from single apheresis donors was beyond the acceptable limits of white blood cell contamination at different storage time-points. Samples were obtained from 11 voluntary apheresis donors. All products were heavily contaminated with leukocytes. Sampling times(More)
