OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of route of delivery on the antioxidant system of newborns. METHODS We used the cord blood taken during labor of 56 vaginal deliveries and 50 elective cesarean sections. The specimens were analyzed for the plasma malondialdehyde (MDA), superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT) and glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase(More)
INTRODUCTION This experimental setting was undertaken to elucidate and confirm the role of inflammatory and oxidant-antioxidant mechanisms on blunt injury induced moderate pulmonary contusion (PC). We intended to determine the effects of dexamethasone (DXM), N-acetylcysteine (NAC) and aprotinin (APR) in terms of their ability to diminish the consequences of(More)
PURPOSE To determine the prevalence of anaemia and iron-deficiency anaemia (IDA) in Kahramanmaras, a province in the south-eastern Anatolia. METHODS The study was performed on 1491 persons of both sexes aged 2-69. All were volunteers. Haematological parameters were determined and haemoglobin (Hb) electrophoresis was carried out in all subjects, and only(More)
It has been shown that the trace elements and lipids play role in the growth, development and maintenance of bones. We aimed to investigate serum selenium (Se), zinc (Zn), copper (Cu) and lipid (total cholesterol, triglyceride (TG), high density lipoprotein-cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein–cholesterol) levels in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis,(More)
PROJECT The aim of the study was to investigate the serum reference range for Selenium (Se), Zinc (Zn) and Copper (Cu) levels in women of 10-14 (group I) and 16-20 (group II) weeks of gestation and compare them with those in non-pregnant healthy women and healthy men. PROCEDURE This cross-sectional study was performed in 351 pregnant women [group I (n:(More)
BACKGROUND In countries like Turkey where smoking is highly prevalent, children's exposure to tobacco smoke is an important public health problem. The goals of this study were to determine the self-reported environmental tobacco smoke exposure status of primary school students in grades 3 to 5, to verify self-reported exposure levels with data provided from(More)
BACKGROUND Interest in the effects of anesthetics in skeletal ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) has recently emerged. Thus, the objective was to compare the effects of subanesthetic doses of ketamine, propofol, and etomidate in a skeletal IRI model. METHODS IRI was applied to rats by tourniquet method. Under thiopental anesthesia, five experimental groups(More)
Our aim was to investigate the association between total serum homocysteine, vitamin B12 and folate levels in pregnant women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), glucose intolerance and compare them with those of glucose tolerant pregnant women. Serum homocysteine, vitamin B12 and serum folate levels were prospectively measured in a total of 223(More)
OBJECTIVE(S) To evaluate a modified Ferriman-Gallwey (mFG) scoring system and serum total testosterone (tT) and dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEAS) levels, in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and in control subjects. STUDY DESIGN Women with any gynecological problem who presented to the Kahramanmaras Sutcuimam University Medical Faculty(More)
Patients with atrial septal defect have an increased risk for atrial fibrillation. Increased P-wave dispersion predicts the development of atrial fibrillation. The aim of this study was to determine difference in P dispersion between transcatheter closure with Amplatzer septal occluder and surgical closure in childhood. A total of 68 children (the mean age(More)
