It also aims to raise awareness in society about the issue of minimizing anxiety disorders in childhood. METHODS A case-control study was conducted in Şevket Yılmaz Training and Research Hospital(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Brain ischemia and treatment are important topics in neurological science. Free oxygen radicals and inflammation formed after ischemia are accepted as the most significant causes of damage. Currently there are studies on many chemopreventive agents to prevent cerebral ischemia damage. Our aim is to research the preventive effect of the active(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the neuroprotective effects of Sulindac on the hippocampal complex after global cerebral ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury in rats. METHODS Thirty one Sprague-Dawley rats were used, distributed into group I (sham) n:7 were used as control. For group II (n:8), III (n:8) and IV (n:8) rats, cerebral ischemia was performed via the(More)
BACKGROUND Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is a risk for the health of both the pregnant women and her infant. Its unfavorable effects start in utero and continue after birth. It is known that GDM increases oxidative stress and decreases antioxidant enzyme activities. In this study we aimed to investigate cord blood mean platelet volume (MPV) and(More)
AIM To establish whether there is any association between passive smoking and pain perception in children, in the absence of existing studies into possible links. METHODS This single-centre study focused on 100 children - 50 who had been exposed to passive smoking and 50 who had not - who were admitted to general polyclinics from September 2012 to(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the left venticular myocardial deformation parameters in normotensive obese children and adolescents by using 2-D speckle tracking echocardiography. METHODS This observational cross-sectional study included 69 children and adolescents (aged between 10-18), 38 were normotensive obese and 31 were normal weighted. All children underwent(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM To investigate the neuroprotective effects of glucagon-like peptide 2 (Glp-2), which increases cerebral blood flow, on the hippocampal complex after cerebral ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury in rats. MATERIALS AND METHODS Animals were randomized into 4 groups: sham, I/R + 0.9% NaCl, I/R + pre-Glp-2, and I/R + post-Glp-2. Cerebral ischemia(More)
BACKGROUND Proanthocyanidin is a potent bioactive antioxidant naturally occurring in grape seed and acts as reactive oxygen species (ROS) scavenger. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of proanthocyanidinin in experimental ovarian torsion injury. METHODS Twenty four rats were randomly divided into three groups (n=8). Group 1: the(More)
