OBJECTIVE To determine oxidative stress by the level of protein carbonyls and total antioxidant status (TAOS), and whether oxidative stress is associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). DESIGN Controlled clinical study. SETTING University hospital. PATIENT(S) Thirty women with PCOS and 31(More)
BACKGROUND Ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury induces an inflammatory response and production of reactive oxygen species (ROS), which affects the organs remote to the sites of I/R. The aim was to assess the hepatic changes after renal I/R injury. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty mice were subjected to either sham operation or varying degrees of renal I/R(More)
BACKGROUND There is increasing evidence to suggest that toxic oxygen radicals play a role in the pathogenesis of ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury in the kidney. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether quercetin, an oxygen free radical scavenger, protects kidney tissue. METHODS A renal I/R injury was induced by a left renal pedicle occlusion by(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The aim of this study was to determine the incidence, obstetrical and fetal complication rates of intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy in patients managed actively around 38 weeks and evaluate the correlation of these results with liver function tests and bile acids. MATERIAL AND METHODS In this cohort study 3710 women were booked for(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine paraoxonase (PON1) levels and whether paraoxonase activity is associated with an increased propensity for the development of cardiovascular disease in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). STUDY DESIGN Thirty-one subjects with PCOS and 33 healthy controls were evaluated in this controlled clinical study. Lipid subfractions,(More)
Because radiotherapy is one of the causes of primary or secondary ovarian failure, protection of ovarian functions in the patients receiving total body or pelvic radiotherapy is of importance. In this study, we investigated the role of melatonin in the oxidative damage in both whole body and ovaries, which is caused by radiotherapy. Eighteen female rats(More)
BACKGROUND Laparoscopic donor nephrectomy (LDN) is associated with prolonged warm ischemia, which could potentially increase oxidative stress in the graft. Because pneumoperitoneum (Pp) used to facilitate LDN impairs renal perfusion, it could augment the effects of warm ischemia. Our experimental, randomized, controlled study with blind outcome assessment(More)
BACKGROUND Free radicals induced by several diseases can trigger oxidative stress, leading to the production of malondialdehyde (MDA) and protein carbonyl content (CB). Volatile agents are able to increase the extent of oxidative status. However, the effects of these agents together with pneumoperitonium (Pp) have not been reported. We aimed to investigate(More)
The role of reactive oxygen species in the pathogenesis of acute ethanol-induced gastric mucosal lesions and the effects of quercetin were evaluated in an experimental model. In addition, the effects of quercetin on gastric damage were evaluated histopathologically. Rats were divided into three groups as control rats, ethanol treated rats and(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate the relationship between oxidative stress and pro-inflammatory response of the renal tissue at different ischemia times in I/R mice. METHODS Twenty-four male Swiss dormice were subjected to 30, 45 or 60 minutes of ischemia and then 60 minutes of reperfusion (Group 1 I 30/R60, Group 2, .I45/R60, and Group 3, I 60/R60(More)
