To assess validity and reliability of the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities (WOMAC) osteoarthritis (OA) index and Lequesne algofunctional index in Turkish patients with hip or knee OA and to compare the results of the instruments for these two particular sites of involvement. Two disease-specific instruments: WOMAC LK 3.1 and Lequesne indices were(More)
AIM Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) may induce morphological, molecular and cellular processes, which are involved in wound healing. The aim of this split-mouth controlled clinical trial was to assess the effects of LLLT on healing of gingiva after gingivectomy and gingivoplasty. MATERIAL AND METHODS Twenty patients with inflammatory gingival hyperplasias(More)
Genetic factors are important in the pathogenesis of coronary artery disease (CAD). Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) gene insertion(I)/deletion(D) polymorphism is one of the genetic factor found to be related with CAD. We investigated the association between I/D polymorphism of the ACE gene and the presence of CAD. Three hundred and seven patients (187(More)
Programmed death-1 (PD-1) and programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) are new targets in cancer immunotherapy. PD-1 protein is an immune checkpoint expressed in many tumors. Epstein–Barr virus (EBV) is present in malignant Hodgkin/Reed–Sternberg (HRS) cells in approximately 40–50 % of Hodgkin lymphoma (HL). The aim of this study is to evaluate the clinical and(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The aim of this study was to examine a plausible correlation between venous and arterial blood gas values in acidotic patients with chronic uremia or diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). METHODS A total of 152 arterial and 152 venous blood samples from uremic patients (n = 100), DKA patients (n = 21) and healthy controls (n = 31) were analyzed for(More)
Abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) is a diffucult entity with two main problems during its course: (1) survival of the patient during the early period and (2) closure of the open wounds during the late period. In this study we evaluated the decision to decompress according to the level of intraabdominal pressure (IAP) and analysis of any recurrent or(More)
The aim of this study is to investigate the blood pressure (BP) profile, microalbuminuria, renal functions, and relations with remaining normal kidney size in children with unilateral functioning solitary kidney (UFSK). Sixty-six children with UFSK were equally divided into three groups: unilateral renal agenesis (URA), unilateral atrophic kidney (UAK), and(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM EBV is an important virus in the pathogenesis of NHL. VEGF-A is the essential factor in tumor angiogenesis. There is evidence of cross talk between angiogenesis and viral carcinogenesis. The viral latent protein LMP1, may play a role by inducing expression of angiogenic factors In this study EBV-LMP1 and VEGF-A expressions have been(More)
Survivin (S) is a member of inhibitor of apoptosis family (IAP) and is expressed in the majority of malignant tumors but undetectable in normal differentiated adult tissues. S is an encouraging target for cancer therapy. TSP-1 is a multifunctional protein regulating cell growth, motility and apoptosis in both physiological and pathological conditions. The(More)
Cyclooxygenase 2 (Cox-2) is a key enzyme in prostaglandin synthesis and it has an important role in the pathogenesis of various malignancies. Cox-2 has been studied in solid tumors; however, studies about the role of Cox-2 in non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (NHL) are limited. The aim of this study is to determine the importance of Cox-2 expression in lymphomas. To(More)
