Introduction: Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADPH) oxidase-2 (Nox2) is one of the predominant sources of ROS production during myocardial ischemia-reperfusion and can be induced by angiotensin II. The evidence suggests that pharmacological blockers of renin-angiotensin system can exert direct tissue effects independent of their ability to(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The aim of this study was to investigate the early changes of cardiac uncoupling protein-2 (UCP2) expression following myocardial ischemia reperfusion in rats chronically treated with ramiprilat and losartan. METHODS Male Wistar rats were assigned into seven groups (six in each): intact (control); sham-operated; nontreated rats(More)
The adherence ability and biofilm production are the characteristic of enhanced virulence among isolates of vancomycin-intermediate Staphylococcus aureus (VISA) strains. Although biofilm-forming properties have been well demonstrated in S. aureus, they still remain unclear among the recently emerged types of VISA strains. The aim of this study was to(More)
Background and Objectives: HBV and HTLV-I are life threatening infectious agents in patients who receive blood and blood products. Although serological methods have been proved to be useful, detection of these viruses has remained a challenging issue due to the many obstacles. By the advent of Nucleic Acid Testing methods, especially in multiplex format,(More)
