Eryptosis is a term to define apoptosis of erythrocytes. Oxidative stress and hyperglycemia, both of which exist in the diabetic intravascular environment, can trigger eryptosis of erythrocytes. In this experimental study, it is presented that the majority of erythrocytes shows caspase-3 immunoreactivity in streptozocin- (STZ)-induced diabetic rats. Besides(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the oxidative stress and metabolic activities of nurses working day and night shifts. Intensive care unit (ICU) (n=70) and ordinary service (OS) nurses (n=70) were enrolled in the study. Just before and the end of the shifts, blood samples were obtained to measure the participants' oxidative stress parameters. Metabolic(More)
Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) are one of the most common bacterial infections, seen in humans, worldwide and their possible relationships to different diseases are a focus of attention nowadays. H. pylori may cause some extra intestinal manifestations some of which are dermatological conditions, including Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP), chronic urticaria(More)
BACKGROUND Contrast induced kidney injury is an acute renal dysfunction that is secondary to the administration of radio contrast media. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the levels of urotensin-II (UT-II) and endothelin-I (ET-I) after contrast media administration in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary interventions. MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) is a rare acquired disorder characterized by intravascular hemolysis. Real-world experience of PNH management is largely unreported. A retrospective analysis was undertaken based on medical records from six patients with PNH [two with aplastic anemia (AA)] treated at our center, Dicle University, Turkey. Diagnosis(More)
This paper investigates the enhancement of sliding mode control (SMC) with the combined use of feedforward torque compensation and proportional error feedback control. The proposed enhancement is adapted to the control of permanent magnet (PM) DC motor drives by synthesis of the equivalent control equation augmented as proportional feedback and feedforward(More)
We read with great interest the article by Jain et al. dealing with the association between vitilogo and oxidative stress [1]. The authors have reported an association between vitiligo and increased oxidative stress. In our opinion, some points of this work are not sufficiently clear. Firstly, measuring different oxidant and antioxidant molecules is(More)
