OBJECTIVE This study tests whether sialic acid is a mediator of the lung injury following lower extremity ischemia/reperfusion (I/R). Design. Prospective randomised study. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-one Sprague-Dawley rats were randomised into four groups: group 1, aorta was exposed but not clamped; group 2, aorta clamped for 3 h, followed by 1 h of(More)
From March 1992 to July 1992, 30 uremic patients (15 dialysed, 15 non-dialysed) and 15 non-uremic patients who had dyspeptic complaints were compared in terms of gastric and duodenal diseases. Gastritis and duodenitis graded as I, II and III were not found different in three groups (p > 0.05). Although the incidence of peptic ulcer disease is very high in(More)
In this study, the serum total, free and ester carnitine levels in 24 type II diabetes mellitus (DM) patients with complications and 15 type II DM patients with no complications were investigated. The patients were investigated in four groups; the control group included the patients with no complications (group 1), the groups including the patients with(More)
BACKGROUND Leptin is a protein hormone secreted by adipocytes, regulating body fat and food intake. It has been reported that serum leptin levels are high in patients with chronic renal failure, and this fact has been associated with malnutrition and body composition changes in patients on hemodialysis. This present study investigated the relationship(More)
Lower respiratory tract infections due to Pseudomonas aeruginosa have a high mortality rate. Antibacterial activity of various antibiotics against P. aeruginosa isolated from each hospital depends on the variety or amount of antibiotics used in each hospital. A total of 249 respiratory isolates of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in Sivas (Turkey) were included(More)
A total of 391 respiratory isolates of Staphylococcus aureus in Sivas (Turkey) were studied between January 1999-2002. The organisms were cultured from the following specimens: throat (43%), sputum (28%), transtracheal/endotracheal aspirates (27%), and bronchial lavage (2%). The isolates were tested against 11 different antibiotics by a disk diffusion(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the correlation between serum leptin levels, body mass index, and triceps skin fold thickness, which are anthropometric measurements, as well as serum albumin levels in patients with chronic renal failure on hemodialysis. METHODS We studied 75 patients (48 males, 27 females; ages between 18-82) at the Hemodialysis Unit, Cumhuriyet(More)
OBJECTIVE The rate of reduction of nocturnal blood pressure (NBP) is lesser than normal in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (type 2 DM). Hyperhomocysteinemia (HHC) disrupts vascular structure and function, no matter the underlying causes. The risk of development of vascular disease is greater in diabetic patients with hyperhomocysteinemia than in(More)
