The incidence of hematological malignancies during pregnancy is low, and treatment in this setting is problematic. This study observed 21 pregnancies in 18 patients with hematological malignancies. Patients' ages were between 19 and 43 (median 25) years. Two pregnancies ended with spontaneous abortion, one pregnancy ended with in utero death, three(More)
A combined upflow anaerobic fixed-bed (UAF-B), using pumice as a biofilter material, and a suspended aerobic activated sludge bioreactor (SAR) equipped with a microfiltration (MF) unit has been designed. This system exhibited high performance on the removal of organic matter. COD removal efficiencies were in the range of 94–98.7% with organic loading rates(More)
Various techniques have been applied to air pollution modelling. In this study, a model was developed by applying a continuity equation to the air control volume over Erzurum city centre. Model parameters were calculated by regression analysis, using SO2 and particle concentrations taken in 1989-1990 and 1990-1991 winter seasons. Multiple correlation(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Cefotaxime or ceftriaxone were considered the first-choice antibiotic for empirical treatment in cirrhotic patients developing spontaneous bacterial peritonitis. It has been suggested that ciprofloxacin could be an alternative to cefotaxime or ceftriaxone in cirrhotic patients developing spontaneous bacterial peritonitis. The aim of the(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the beneficial effects of thalidomide on recurrent perforating intestinal ulcers in a patient with Behçet's disease (BD). CASE SUMMARY A 24-year-old Turkish woman with BD was admitted to our hospital because of severe abdominal pain and vomiting. She had been receiving colchicine 1.5 mg/day and azathioprine 150 mg/day for treatment of(More)
Nonspecific increased inflammatory response is an important feature of Behcet's disease (BD). The skin pathergy reaction (SPR) which tests this hyperreactivity in the skin is frequently used as a diagnostic tool. This study aims to investigate the argon laser photocoagulation (ALP)-induced cutaneous inflammation in BD patients and controls and also to(More)
In patients with antiphospholipid syndrome (APS), thromboembolism and pulmonary hypertension are the most common pulmonary manifestations. Thrombotic obstruction at the level of the main and/or proximal pulmonary arteries is rare. We report a 40-year-old woman without any history of previous arterial and/or venous thrombosis who presented with severe(More)
