Mechanisms of burn-induced skin and remote organ injury involve oxidant generation and the release of pro-inflammatory cytokines. In this study the possible antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of ghrelin were evaluated in a rat model of thermal trauma. Wistar albino rats were exposed to 90 degrees C bath for 10 s to induce thermal trauma. Ghrelin, was(More)
The potential protective effect of OT on a stress-aggravated colitis model in rats and the involvement of OT receptors were evaluated.

In this study, we propose a system for organizing personal photo collections. Motivated with the fact that people related queries are the most desired ones, we propose a method for labeling faces in photographs. After representing the detected faces based on the descriptors extracted around facial features, the similarities between all faces in the dataset(More)
