Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is the most commonly diagnosed neurobehavioral disorder of childhood. The etiopathogeny of ADHD has not been totally defined. Recent reports have suggested a pathophysiological role of neurotrophins in ADHD. In this study, we evaluated serum levels of nerve growth factor (NGF) in patients with ADHD. The sample(More)
UNLABELLED Gammaherpesviruses, including Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), Kaposi sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV, or HHV-8), and murine gammaherpesvirus 68 (MHV68, γHV68, or MuHV-4), are B cell-tropic pathogens that each encode at least 12 microRNAs (miRNAs). It is predicted that these regulatory RNAs facilitate infection by suppressing host target genes(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the diagnostic efficacy of telomerase activity for discrimination of malignant and benign pleural effusions. Pleural effusions were collected from 109 consecutive patients in whom the diagnosis was confirmed with cytological and/or histological examinations. Cytological samples were classified as malignant(More)
Human hepatocyte growth factor (hHGF) is the most potent mitogen identified for alveolar type II cells, and may have other important functions in the repair of the alveolar epithelium and compensatory lung growth. A study was conducted to evaluate the changes of serum hHGF levels in patients who underwent thoracic surgical procedures. The patients comprised(More)
Recent intense investigations have uncovered important functions for a diverse array of novel noncoding RNA (ncRNA) species, including microRNAs (miRNAs) and long noncoding RNAs. Not surprisingly, viruses from multiple families have evolved to encode their own regulatory RNAs; however, the specific in vivo functions of these ncRNAs are largely unknown. The(More)

Objective: Recognizing cauda equina redundant nerve root syndrome is crucial before surgery. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings of this condition are demonstrated. The aim of this study is to identify patients with redundant nerve root syndrome (RNS), well demonstrate (MRI) findings, notify the surgeon before the surgery and therefore to prevent a(More)

Objective: In our case study, we represent that lumbar synovial cysts can disappear spontaneously, therefore conservative treatment techniques could be used before planning for invasive methods. Methods: A synovial cyst is detected with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in a patient with lumbar region and sciatic nerve pain. Conservative treatment methods(More)
