BACKGROUND/PURPOSE The aim of this study was to determine the effects of nitric oxide (NO) on the expression of adhesion molecules in the early course of testicular I-R injury in rats. METHODS Forty male Sprague-Dawley rats were separated into 4 groups, each containing 10 rats. A sham operation was performed in group 1 (control). In group 2 (I-R), after 6(More)
The purpose of this study is to show whether selective (celecoxib) and non-selective (piroxicam) inhibitors of COX-2 can alter the morphological and functional changes after the release of a 24 h complete ureteric obstruction in tissue from solitary rat kidney. Forty male Sprague-Dawley rats weighing 225-250 g were used. The animals were divided into four(More)
BACKGROUND Among women with haematuria, defining individuals under high risk for bladder cancer based on reproductive factors prior to cystoscopy would be of great benefit in the management of this condition. The aim of this study was to compare age and reproductive factors such as menopausal status, parity, age at first delivery and age at the last(More)
The objective of the present study was to investigate the potential association between the presence of BK virus (BKV) DNA and mRNA and renal cell carcinoma and bladder transitional cell carcinoma. The formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded tissue samples were obtained from 50 cancer patients with renal cell carcinoma, 40 cancer patients with bladder(More)
Title A relation between embedding degrees and class numbers of binary quadratic forms Abstract. In this paper, we describe a relation between the embedding degree of an elliptic curve over a prime field F p and the inertial degree of the primes above p in a certain ring class field. From this relation, we conclude that the embedding degree divides the(More)
OBJECTIVE Angiomyolipoma (AML) is a benign neoplasm consisting of varying mixtures of smooth muscle, blood vessels and fat. Although, most of these tumors are easy to recognize, some may pose a diagnostic dilemma due to unusual histologic features. Recently, it was suggested that melanosome-associated protein (HMB-45) immunoreactivity may be used for(More)
We present new methods for computing square roots and factorization of poly-nomials over finite fields. We also describe a method for computing in the Jacobian of a singular hyperelliptic curve. There is a compact representation of an element in the Jacobian of a smooth hyperelliptic curve over any field. This compact representation leads an efficient(More)
Multi-scale rectangular element mushroom structure high impedance ground plane (HIGP) designed to exhibit larger band gap frequency range to cover greater bandwidth for low profile antenna design. The HIGP's are composed of three different dimensioned rectangular patch mushroom elements for different resonance frequency realization. The characterizations of(More)
