AIM To compare response assessment according to the WHO, RECIST 1.1, EORTC, and PERCIST criteria in patients diagnosed with malignant solid tumors and who had received cytotoxic chemotherapy to establish the strength of agreement between each criterion. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty patients with malignant solid tumors were included in this retrospective(More)
OBJECTIVE Toward the end of 2010, the Arab spring, the waves of revolutionary demonstrations and protests influenced also Syria, where violent clashes turned into a civil war. Hundreds of thousands of people became refugees. The use of excessive force unfortunately culminated in numerous deaths and injuries in many cities. Being the closest city to Aleppo,(More)
AIM Interruption of blood flow may result in considerable tissue damage via ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury-induced oxidative stress in brain tissues. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of Ebselen treatment in short-term global brain I/R injury in rats. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study was carried out on 27 Wistar-albino rats,(More)
OBJECTIVE The development of secondary brain injury after trauma is known to involve in many cellular mediators. The aim of the study was to evaluate and compare the effects of the use of both methylprednisolone and montelukast on serum and tissue concentrations of NO, malondialdehyde (MDA) levels, superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity, and tissue glutathione(More)
BACKGROUND Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality among youth and adults. Secondary injury mechanisms within the spinal cord (SC) are well known to cause deterioration after an acute impact. Free radical scavengers are among the most studied agents in animal models of SCI. Edaravone is a scavenger of hydroxyl radicals. (More)
The aim of this study was to assess the effects of minocycline on cerebral ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury in rats. The study was carried out on 24 male Wistar albino rats, weighing 200-250 g, which were divided into three groups: (i) control (n = 8), (ii) I/R (n = 8) and (iii) I/R + minocycline (n = 8). Minocycline was administrated at a dose of 90 mg/kg(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of ceftriaxone treatment against short-term global brain ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury in rats. The study was carried out on 30 Wistar-albino rats that were divided into three groups: control group (n=10), I/R group (n=10) and I/R-ceftriaxone group (n=10). Malondialdehyde (MDA) levels were(More)
Gastric primitive neuroectodermal tumor (PNET) is a very rare tumor. There are only a few case reports in the literature. Although cases with FDG uptake in the portal venous tumor thrombus (PVTT) in different primary malignancies have been evaluated before, the coexistence of PNET and PVTT has not been reported yet. Herein, we report the case of a gastric(More)
BACKGROUND The effects of minocycline on neuronal injury after spinal cord injury (SCI) are limited and controversial. Therefore we aimed to investigate the protective effects of minocycline on tissue and on serum concentrations of malondialdehyde (MDA) levels, superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity, glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) activity, tissue total(More)
