EGFR (epidermal growth factor receptor), p53, and proliferative markers provide some clues as to the formation of several tumours. In this study the mechanism of the genesis of parathyroid adenomas was investigated using immunohistochemistry. Sections of parathyroid adenomas from 12 cases were stained using PCNA (proliferating cell nuclear antigen), EGFR,(More)
AIM To investigate the changes in the extracellular matrix protein expression and the morphology of seminiferous tubules in the testis of 88 azoospermic men. METHODS The patients were of the following categories: (1) 22 cases of Sertoli-cell-only syndrome, (2) 20 cases of spermatogenic arrest, and (3) 46 cases with hypospermatogenesis. Testicular sections(More)
Montelukast, a specific cysteinyl leukotriene receptor antagonist, has been shown to improve pulmonary function within 1 h of ingestion. This study was undertaken to compare the effects on peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR) of oral montelukast added to intravenous steroid, intravenous steroid alone and placebo during the 24 h period following administration.(More)
Intervals V and VI of Yq11.23 regions contain responsible genes for spermatogenesis, and are named as "azoospermia factor locus" (AZF). Deletions in these genes are thought to be pathogenetically involved in some cases of male infertility associated with azoospermia or oligozoospermia. The aim of this study was to establish the prevalence of microdeletions(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the impact of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) in chronic renal failure (CRF)-associated testicular dysfunction in an experimental model. In additionally, we examined whether different peritoneal dialysis (PD) fluids could contribute to the elevation in AGE level and iNOS expression(More)
The present experiments were undertaken to determine the levels of MDA, SOD and catalase in the testis of adolescent rats with experimental left varicoceles. Male Wistar rats, 7 weeks old and weighing 160-170 g, were randomly allocated into three groups. The first group of rats underwent partial ligation of the left renal vein (n = 15). The second group of(More)
Locating and securing an Alzheimer's patient who is outdoors and in wandering state is crucial to patient's safety. Although advances in geotracking and mobile technology have made locating patients instantly possible, reaching them while in wandering state may take time. However, a social network of caregivers may help shorten the time that it takes to(More)
The tolerability and efficacy of the continuous infusion of cisplatin during radiotherapy was studied by tumour response, survival and pelvic control, in carcinoma of the cervix. 44 patients with stage IIB-IIIB cervical carcinoma were prospectively randomized into two groups: radiation alone (control group) versus radiation plus cisplatin (study group).(More)
Our study indicated the relationship between tumor length and clinicopathologic characteristics as well as long-term survival in esophageal cancer. A total of 116 patients who underwent curative surgery for thoracic esophageal cancer with standard lymphadenectomy in 2 fields between 2000 and 2010 were included in the study. The medical records of these(More)
Internet is being used increasingly as a resource for accessing health-related information because of its several advantages. Therefore, Internet tailoring becomes quite preferable in health education and personal health management recently. Today, there are many web based health programs designed for individuals. Among these studies nutrition and weight(More)
