OBJECTIVE Unlike in many other chronic inflammatory rheumatic diseases, studies investigating endothelial dysfunction and atherosclerosis in familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) are limited, and the results are controversial. Asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) is considered an indicator for endothelial dysfunction and a sensitive marker for cardiovascular(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS To investigate the association of plasma osteoprotegerin (OPG) levels with diabetic neuropathy. METHODS Forty-two diabetic patients (21 female and 21 male) and twenty-four non-diabetic healthy control subjects (12 female and 12 male) were included in the study. All consecutive diabetic patients who came for routine follow-up at our(More)
BACKGROUND The primary goal of the present study was to investigate the effects of anaemia on the cognitive functions and daily living activities in elderly people. METHODS This sectional study was performed using 180 elderly people. Face-to-face interviews and questionnaires were conducted to evaluate daily activities. To evaluate cognitive functions we(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of relaxing music on pain intensity in patients with neuropathic pain. A quasi-experimental study, repeated measures design was used. Thirty patients, aged 18-70 years, with neuropathic pain and hospitalized in an Algology clinic were identified as a convenience sample. Participants received 60 minutes of(More)
AIM The aim of this study is to examine the relation between body iron, oxidative stress and cognitive function in elderly. METHODS Eighty-seven elderly residents from nursing homes were the subjects of our study. Cognitive status was screened by the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE). Of the 87 eligible subjects, 46 patients who obtained 24 or fewer(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the rate of MEFV gene mutations, the gene responsible for familial Mediterranean fever (FMF), in patients with hematolymphoid neoplasm. The rate of the five most common MEFV gene mutations (M694V, M680I, V726A, M694I and E148Q) was determined in 46 patients with hematolymphoid neoplasm. We found a high frequency of(More)
In this research, we studied the incidence of pressure ulcer and risk factors and screening of the patients for pressure ulcers at intensive care unit on the first day of admission in 142 patients. All patients were evaluated according to National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel during the ICU period strictly. Pressure ulcer risk evaluation was performed(More)
BACKGROUND Recent studies have revealed a prognostic impact of the MPV (mean platelet volume)/platelet count ratio in terms of survival in advanced non-small cell lung cancer. However, there has been no direct analysis of the survival impact of MPV in patients with mCRC. The aim of the study is to evaluate the pretreatment MPV of patients with metastatic(More)
We aimed to investigate the rate of MEFV, the gene mutated in familial Mediterranean fever, mutations in patients with myeloid neoplasm and to determine if known mutations of MEFV cause a tendency for myeloid neoplasms. The frequency of the five most common MEFV gene mutations (M694V, M680I, V726A, E148Q and M694I) was determined in 26 patients with myeloid(More)
