BACKGROUND Disturbed sleep is a significant health issue for pregnant women. Inadequate vitamin D intake is common among pregnant women and can affect many bodily systems. The purpose of this cross-sectional study was to test the hypothesis that serum vitamin D levels are low in pregnant women who have poor sleep quality in their last trimester. METHODS(More)
AIM In this pilot study, we aimed to determine whether serum SPON2 is a useful biomarker in the detection of nephropathy in patients with Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) and to compare serum SPON2 levels with 24-hour urinary albumin excretion rate (UAER) in patients with Diabetic Nephropathy (DN) at different stages. METHODS The cohort included 80 adult patients(More)
We aim to compare the outcomes, including the morbidity and success rates in children undergoing percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) using different sized devices. According to the size of instruments used during surgery, three different groups (ultra-mini-PCNL, mini-PCNL and adult size PCNL) were composed and the outcomes were compared between the groups.(More)
BACKGROUND Malnutrition-Inflammation Score (MIS) is a quantitative assessment tool based on Subjective Global Assessment (SGA) and predicts mortality and morbidity in maintenance hemodialysis patients. However, there are not enough data about the use of MIS in peritoneal dialysis (PD). In this study, relationships between MIS and prospective hospitalization(More)
The aim of this study was to determine 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine (8-OH-dG) levels in trichloroethylene (TCE)-exposed workers. Oxidative stress biomarkers and biochemical parameters were monitored among 26 TCE-exposed workers and 78 age-matched control subjects. Levels of urinary 8-OH-dG were analyzed by liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry. Urinary(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM To investigate the effects of acitretin treatment on insulin resistance (IR) and adipokines, particularly retinol-binding protein (RBP)-4. METHODS Thirty-four patients with chronic plaque psoriasis and a control group of 34 healthy volunteers were recruited in the study. Screening for the parameters was performed before starting and after 3(More)
BACKGROUND-AIM Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a major cause of chronic liver disease worldwide. The aims of this study were to assess Neutrophil-Lymphocyte Ratio (NLR) and C-reactive protein (CRP), and their association with liver histology in patients with non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), chronic hepatitis B (HBV), and hepatitis C (HCV).(More)
OBJECTIVES Intestinal ischemia-reperfusion injury is associated with mucosal damage and has a high rate of mortality. Various beneficial effects of ozone have been shown. The aim of the present study was to show the effects of ozone in ischemia reperfusion model in intestine. MATERIAL AND METHOD Twenty eight Wistar rats were randomized into four groups(More)
BACKGROUND Endocan, a cysteine-rich dermatan sulfate proteoglycan expressed by endothelial cells, is seemed to be a new biomarker for endothelial dysfunction. Pre-eclampsia (PE) is characterized by the new onset of hypertension, proteinuria after 20 weeks of gestation, placental vascular remodeling, systemic vascular inflammation and endothelial(More)
AIM Galectin-3 (Gal-3) plays a role in modulation of adiposity, glucose hemostasis and inflammation. The association between Gal-3 and the polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), is not investigated. We aimed to evaluate galectin-3 levels in serum and their relation with hyperandrogenism and insulin resistance (IR) in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)(More)
