OBJECTIVE To investigate the clinical and prognostic features of patients admitted to intensive care unit (ICU) with pandemic 2009 influenza A (H1N1) virus. METHODS Patients admitted to the intensive care unit for severe pneumonia associated with pandemic 2009 influenza A (H1N1) virus were evaluated. RESULTS The study included 20 patients with the mean(More)
The effectiveness of various therapeutic methods on bone fracture has been demonstrated in several studies. In the present study, we tried to evaluate the effect of local low-magnitude, high-frequency vibration (LMHFV) on rat tibia fracture in comparison with pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) during the healing process. Mid-diaphysis tibiae fractures(More)
OBJECTIVES In the current study, the risk coefficients of nitric oxide (NO), folate, homocysteine levels and lipid peroxidation in postmenopausal osteoporotic women were determined. MATERIAL AND METHODS Bone mineral density was determined by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry. The levels of serum lipid peroxidation products such as the thiobarbituric acid(More)
Coumarins are a vast group of natural compounds and some of them possess antioxidant activities. The comparison of the antioxidant activity of some coumarins with various chemical molecular structure has not been investigated in previous studies. Therefore, this study was aimed to investigate the hepatoprotective effect against carbon tetrachloride (CCl4)(More)
Ghrelin, an endogenous ligand for growth hormone secretagogue receptor (GHS-R), has been identified in the rat and human gastrointestinal tract. Ghrelin has been proposed to play a role in gastric acid secretion. Nitric oxide (NO) was shown as a mediator in the mechanism of ghrelin action on gastric acid secretory function. However, there is a little(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to compare the effect of the resveratrol with gliclazide and losartan in streptozotocin induced diabetic rats. MATERIALS AND METHODS Adult male Wistar albino rats were divided into five groups of seven rats each. Diabetes was induced with a single intraperitoneal (i.p.) injection of streptozotocin (55 mg/kg). Rats with blood(More)
Ghrelin, an orexigenic peptide produced in the stomach has shown to elicit peripheral actions including regulation of pancreatic β-cell function. The aim of the study is to clarify the regulation of plasma ghrelin concentrations by insulin in streptozotocin (STZ) induced diabetic rats. Adult male Wistar rats were divided into control and three experimental(More)
In the present study, coumarin and some coumarin derivatives (esculetin, scoparone, and 4-methylumbelliferone) were investigated for their lipid-lowering effect in rats. Male Sprague-Dawley rats (150-200 g) were divided into six groups and each group comprised of five rats. Hepatic injury-dependent hyperlipidemia was induced by carbon tetrachloride (CCl4,(More)
