The objectives of this experiment were to determine interrelationships among mastitis indicators and evaluate the subclinical mastitis detection ability of infrared thermography (IRT) in comparison with the California Mastitis Test (CMT). Somatic cell count (SCC), CMT, and udder skin surface temperature (USST) data were compiled from 62 Brown Swiss dairy(More)
This prospective study was carried out to determine changes in the antioxidant system in epileptic children receiving long term antiepileptic drugs (AEDs). Levels of erythrocyte glutathione (GSH), glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px), superoxide dismutase (SOD) and serum lipid peroxidation were determined in 25 healthy children and 30 epileptic children who had(More)
Some epileptic drugs may change antioxidant enzyme activities in humans and experimental animals. Recent studies suggest that membrane lipid peroxidation may be causally involved in some forms of epilepsy, and the differences are reported in free radical scavenging enzyme levels. GSHpX, SOD, GSH are important parameters of antioxidant defence mechanisms.(More)
The aim of this study was to measure changes in the antioxidant systems of epileptic children who had been receiving either valproate or carbamazepine monotherapy for 2 years. For this purpose, levels of erythrocyte glutathione, glutathione peroxidase, superoxide dismutase, and serum lipid peroxidation in 25 healthy children and 27 children who had(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate the dental and periodontal health status of patients on regular hemodialysis (HD) maintenance therapy, and the effect of duration of HD on oral status. STUDY DESIGN Sixty-eight HD patients and 41 controls were examined. Decayed, Missing or Filled Teeth (DMFT index), plague index (PI), gingival index(More)
The destruction of antibiotic-resistant microorganisms at the source of contamination is necessary due to their adverse effects and to their increasingly widespread occurrence in the environment. To address this problem, Fenton and ozone oxidation processes were applied to synthetically contaminated cow manure to remove the tetM gene and its host,(More)
To evaluate renal tubular function in children receiving antiepileptic drugs the urinary activity of two lysosomal enzymes, N-acetyl-beta-glucosaminidase and beta-galactosidase, were measured. The enzyme levels were determined before the administration of antiepileptic drugs and 8 months after. Fourteen epileptic children received valproate, and 17 received(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic infection and inflammation, including periodontitis, are linked to an increased risk for atherosclerosis. To investigate the possible adverse effects of periodontitis in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients, we compared periodontal severity with inflammation and malnutrition, which are associated with poor(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Familial Mediterranean fever stimulates a very intense acute-phase reactants response and if left untreated eventually leads to amyloidosis. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of periodontal disease among patients with familial Mediterranean fever in the Black Sea region in Turkey and to evaluate whether(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Periodontitis, a chronic inflammatory disease caused by oral bacterial infection, is considered to be a risk factor for systemic diseases including diabetes mellitus, bacterial pneumonia, hyperlipidemia and atherosclerosis. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of melatonin against periodontal inflammation-induced(More)
