CA 125 is a cell surface antigen expressed in some derivatives of celomic epithelium, predominantly in ovarian cancer cells. However, it has also been detected in serum of healthy women and in patients with benign gynecologic diseases. The exact source or sources of the circulating levels of CA 125 and their elevations are not known. In the present study,(More)
OBJECTIVE This study was undertaken to determine the prevalence of Y-chromosome microdeletions in couples with recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) as compared with fertile couples. STUDY DESIGN Forty-three men from couples with recurrent pregnancy loss, and 43 men from couples with a live birth and no history of miscarriages were recruited from Zekai Tahir(More)
BACKGROUND Relationships between poor prognosis of ovarian malignancies and changes in complete blood count parameters have been proposed previously. In this work, we aimed to evaluate clinicopathologic features in adolescents with adnexal masses and sought to establish any predictive value of the platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR) in diagnosis. MATERIALS(More)
The aim of this study was to assess whether the extent of the change in high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) levels is related with in vitro fertilization (IVF) success. A total of 69 IVF cycles using long luteal GnRH agonist protocol at the IVF unit, were prospectively studied. The serum levels of hs-CRP were measured on the day of initiation of(More)
The present study aims to compare anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH) with other ovarian reserve markers and to find a cut-off value of AMH for predicting ovarian response towards controlled ovarian hyperstimulation in an in vitro fertilization (IVF) program. A prospective analysis was performed in 180 patients undergoing their first IVF trial, which is being(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the capacity of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), pregnancy-associated plasma protein-A (PAPP-A), and progesterone (P) to discriminate ectopic pregnancies (EP) from nonectopic ones. DESIGN Prospective, case-controlled study. SETTING Tertiary care center. PATIENT(S) Twenty-nine women with EP, 29 women with normal(More)
AIM The present study aims to assign the reference values for nasal bone length (NBL) screened at 11-14 weeks of pregnancy in the Turkish population, determining whether the NBLs specified for Caucasians can be validated for Turkish people. MATERIALS & METHODS The values of NBL were investigated in a total of 415 singleton fetuses that had Turkish parents(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to assess the treatment of endometriosis with a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist in terms of changes to the extent of disease and to CA 125 levels as well as to recurrence during follow-up. METHODS The levels of serum CA 125 were evaluated in 66 patients with endometriosis diagnosed and staged by(More)
We analyzed the effect of strontium ranelate treatment on plasma homocysteine (Hcy) levels in postmenopausal osteoporotic women. Forty-nine postmenopausal women diagnosed with osteoporosis with a mean age of 54.07 ± 7.5 years (range 40–70) who visited our menopause clinic were participated in this prospective study. Patients with bone mineral density (BMD)(More)
To evaluate the value of elevated day 3 FSH/LH ratio in predicting IVF results in young and older women. One hundred seventy-four women with normal day 3 FSH levels undergoing IVF treatment were studied. Patients were divided into two groups according to basal FSH/LH ratio: Group 1(FSH/LH ≥3, n = 43) and Group 2 (FSH/LH <3, n = 131). The effects of FSH/LH(More)
