The C677T and A1298C polymorphisms of methylenetatrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene are reported to have a relationship to methotrexate (MTX) metabolism, with conflicting results. The aim of this study was to determine the frequency of MTHFR C677 T and A1298C gene polymorphisms in a group of Turkish RA patients and evaluate its association with MTX(More)
The selective oxidation of ethene over a silver on o-alumina catalyst was studied in a wall cooled tubular reactor. Temperatures were measured inside the bed at different axial and radial positions as well as the overall conversion and selectivity. Locally measured temperatures vary after repacking the bed whereas the global properties do not vary. Angular(More)
The kinetics of the selective oxidation of ethene in air over an industrial silver on a-alumina catalyst were studied. Special attention was paid to the influence of the reaction products on the reaction rates of epoxidation and complete combustion. Kinetic data were obtained in two different types of internal recycle reactor and in a cooled tubular(More)
Several problems and pitfalls in the use of laboratory reactors for the determination of the kinetics of ethene epoxidation over industrial silver on E-alumina catalyst are discussed. Also, commonly used methodologies for kinetic studies are dealt with because of the general nature of some problems. Some advice is given in choosing and using the appropriate(More)
Upper extremity lymphedema occurs in one of five women after breast cancer treatment and causes significant morbidity. Women often report being uninformed regarding awareness of lymphedema and other side effects after the cancer surgery. The aim of the study was to assess the postoperative information and education about lymphedema in patients with(More)
Serum adenosine deaminase (ADA) has been previously proposed to predict disease activity in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The aim of this study was to investigate the level of serum ADA, and the relationship between ADA and disease activity markers, in a group of patients with RA. A hundred and 10 patients with a diagnosis of RA were recruited(More)
