The frequency and etiology of anemia were investigated in 2,913 children between six and 16 years of age in Sanliurfa, in the southeast region of Turkey. Anemia was found in 142 (7.8%) children in the 6-11 years of age group, and in 16 (1.5%) in the 12-16 years of age group; in total, in 158 (5.4%) children. Causes were iron deficiency in 93 (58.9%)(More)
To determine the preventative effect of caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE) in necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) in an experimental rat model of NEC. Thirty newborn Sprague–Dawley rats were randomly divided into three groups; as NEC, NEC + CAPE and control. NEC was induced by enteral formula feeding, subjected to hypoxia–hyperoxia and cold stress. Pups in the(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of this study was to investigate the incidence of hearing loss in neonates and evaluate the feasibility of a two-stage Transient Evoked Otoacoustic Emission (TEOAE) screening test. Maternal concerns about hearing screening were also studied. METHODS Neonatal intensive care patients and well babies were screened using a two-stage(More)
Phototherapy is commonly used in the treatment of hyperbilirubinemia in newborns. No serious side effects related to phototherapy have been observed, but concerns regarding its potential to damage DNA have been expressed, based on animal or cell-culture studies. The aim of this study was to investigate, in neonates with hyperbilirubinemia, the possible(More)
Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is the most common neonatal gastrointestinal emergency, predominantly affecting low-birth weight, premature infants. Early clinical signs of NEC are nonspecific and the laboratory findings are not fully reliable. Its severe morbidities and rapid progression require the application of new biomarkers for early diagnosis and(More)
BACKGROUND Protein energy malnutrition (PEM) is a common pediatric health problem in developing countries. Although the clinical features of PEM are well known, its pathophysiology is still unclear. Free radicals have been implicated in pathogenesis of PEM. In the present study, oxidant/anti-oxidant status in marasmus was investigated. METHODS Red cell(More)
AIM To discuss intestinal side effects of ibuprofen in the treatment of patent ductus arteriosus, after having observed two cases of spontaneous intestinal perforation following ibuprofen treatment. METHODS Clinical and laboratory records of two preterm infants, who developed intestinal perforation after ibuprofen administration, were evaluated. RESULTS(More)
In this study, we aimed to make a comparison between chromosomal effects caused by conventional phototherapy and intensive phototherapy in jaundiced newborns. The study group included 83 newborns with gestation age of > or =35 weeks, and on days 3-10 after birth. Newborns were divided into four groups on the basis of total serum bilirubin (TSB) levels upon(More)
Vitamin D has been linked with immunity, and the immunomodulatory role of this molecule in regulating key elements of the immune system has become an area of intense scientific investigation. We designed a case–control study to investigate whether neonates with early-onset neonatal sepsis (EONS) had lower levels of vitamin D. The primary exposure for the(More)
Early-onset neonatal sepsis (EONS) continues to be a severe condition associated with a high mortality and morbidity. However, symptoms and laboratory markers of this serious condition are nonspecific and currently there are no available standard tests to provide perfect diagnostic accuracy. An early recognition and initiation of antimicrobial therapy are(More)
