The p53 tumor suppressor directs the cellular response to many mechanistically distinct DNA-damaging agents and is selected against during the pathogenesis of therapy-related acute myeloid leukemia (t-AML). We hypothesized that constitutional genetic variation in the p53 pathway would affect t-AML risk. Therefore, we tested associations between patients(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the safety, efficacy, tolerability, and the effects of atomoxetine and OROS-MPH on executive functions in children with ADHD. This study was an open-label study that only included two medication groups. Children were randomized to open-label atomoxetine or OROS-MPH for 12 weeks. Primary efficacy measures were T-DSM-IV-S,(More)
Apart from their involvement in the pathogenesis of demyelinating diseases such as multiple sclerosis, there is emerging evidence that matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) also promote remyelination. We investigated region-specific expression patterns of 11 MMPs and 4 tissueinhibitors of metalloproteinases (TIMPs) in the cuprizone murine demyelination model.(More)
The allele frequencies of two functional single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the p53 pathway, the MDM2 SNP309 and TP53 Arg72Pro, vary dramatically among populations. That the frequencies of the TP53 SNP follow a clinal distribution may suggest that selective pressure from environmental variables correlated with latitude contributed to these observed(More)
Social phobia is a mental disorder characterized by extreme and consistent fear of meeting new people, scrutiny in a variety of performance and/or interactional situations. The aim of this study was to investigate the level of self-reported social anxiety in a community sample of Turkish adolescents and the relationship between social anxiety and some(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) often report the use of antiplatelet medications, even more commonly than the use of anticoagulants. The effect of antiplatelet drugs on the course of ICH is controversial. In this study, our aim was to determine the effects of previous antiplatelet therapy on admission hematoma volume and hematoma(More)
A 21-year-old woman was admitted due to altered mental status and hypothermia. The patient had a diagnosis of neuromyelitis optica (NMO) for 12 years and she was positive for serum anti-aquaporin 4 antibody. On admission, physical examination revealed coma with decerebration rigidity and poikilothermia. Magnetic resonance images of the brain revealed(More)
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a multisystemic autoimmune disease with which a variety of neuropathic disorders have been associated. Among these, the acute inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy variant of Guillain-Barré syndrome has been well established. However, acute axonal lumbosacral polyradiculoneuropathy accompanied by(More)
Cerebral venous thrombosis rarely develops after lumbar puncture and spinal anesthesia with accidental dural puncture, however, occurrence of isolated cortical vein thrombosis after epidural anesthesia is extremely rare. We report three cases who developed postural headache and isolated cortical vein thrombosis after epidural anesthesia. We postulate that(More)
Priapism is a persistent unwanted erection that is not associated with sexual desire or sexual stimulation. Immediate diagnosis and treatment are essential for priapism; otherwise, it causes ischemia of cavernous tissues, which will result in erectile dysfunction. In this paper, we report a 14-year-old male patient who presented with priapism after(More)
