PURPOSE Severe local and systemic tissue damage called ischemia/reperfusion (IR) injury occurs during the period of reperfusion. Free oxygen radicals and proinflammatory cytokines are responsible for reperfusion injury. IL-18 binding protein (IL-18BP) is a natural inhibitor of IL-18. The balance between IL-18 and IL-18BP has an important role in the(More)
BACKGROUND The most common disease required emergency surgical operation is acute appendicitis. Appendectomy is the most common surgical procedure in the world and remains important due to be an efficient treatment method. We aimed to determine seasonal variations of acute appendicitis in our regions and identify the demographical and regional differences.(More)
BACKGROUND Severe local and systemic tissue injuries can occur after restoration of tissue oxygenation which is also known as reperfusion injury. Our objective was to investigate the possible protective effects of melatonin against IR damage in hepatic tissue following infrarenal aortic occlusion. METHODS A total of twenty-one male Wistar-albino rats(More)
The genes RAD51 and XRCC2 encode proteins that are important for the repair of double-strand DNA breaks by recombination. Therefore, genetic variability in these genes may contribute to the occurrence and progression of carcinoma. We investigated the association of polymorphisms in the DNA repair genes XRCC2-A/G and RAD51-135G/C with the colorectal cancer(More)
