BACKGROUND Enuresis Nocturna (EN) is a common disorders in childhood. Although many different underlying pathophysiological mechanisms have been proposed to explain EN, its etiology is multifactorial. Some reports demonstrate that there is an association between EN and allergic diseases. To study (1) the prevalence of EN in children with asthma, (2) to(More)
Objectives:To investigate the role of serum apolipoprotein (apo) B levels in predicting metabolic syndrome (MS), hypertension, atherogenic dyslipidemia and type II diabetes.Methods:Prospective evaluation of 1125 men and 1223 women, aged 28–74 years, participating in the survey 1997/1998 who had serum apo B determinations and were followed-up for a mean 5.9(More)
OBJECTIVE We assessed the association of breast-feeding and timing of solid food introduction with childhood obesity. METHODS The children were grouped according to the duration of breast-feeding (0-1, 2-6, 7-12, 13-18, and 19-24 months) and the age at which solid foods were introduced (<4, 4-5, and ≥6 months). RESULTS In this study, we enrolled 4990(More)
Background: Familial Mediterranean Fever (FMF) is the most common autoinflammatory disease. Autoinflammatory disorders are characterized by exaggerated immune system responses. Neutrophils and their byproduct, myeloperoxidase, are important components of the innate immune system. In the present study, we searched for myeloperoxidase gene polymorphisms in(More)
AIM Knowledge about the role of the innate immune system in the pathogenesis of allergic diseases has been expanding in recent years. Defensins are antimicrobial peptides that are components of the innate immune system. Defensins have strong efficacy against bacterial, viral, and fungal infections. Moreover, they have regulatory functions in many(More)
BACKGROUND Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the airways which results in chronic hypoxia. Chronic hypoxia and inflammation can affect renal tubular function. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to investigate renal tubular function and early kidney injury molecules such as urinary N-acetyl-betaglucosaminidase (NAG) and kidney injury(More)
