Brucellosis is a chronic granulomatous infection and may present with various clinical manifestations. Brucellar spondylodiscitis symptoms are initially subtle and nonspecific. Annexin A2 (ANXA2) is involved in various biological functions, including osteoclast formation, bone resorption, and cell growth regulation. In this study, we aimed to determine the(More)
The objective of this study was to examine a novel profile: thiol-disulfide homeostasis in acute brucellosis. The study included 90 patients with acute brucellosis, and 27 healthy controls. Thiol-disulfide profile tests were analyzed by a recently developed method, and ceruloplasmin levels were determined. Native thiol levels were 256.72 ± 48.20 μmol/L in(More)
INTRODUCTION Bone morphogenetic protein-7 (BMP-7) is a key protein in organogenesis and liver development. The protein has been studied in the context of liver fibrosis and regeneration. The aim of the present study was to explore any possible association between fibrosis levels (as revealed by liver biopsy) and serum BMP-7 levels. METHODOLOGY A total of(More)
BACKGROUND The hepatitis B virus is an important healthcare problem. According to current clinical practice, a liver biopsy is required for the diagnosis and treatment of chronic liver disease. However, a liver biopsy is an invasive, inconvenient procedure, which requires an expert pathologist opinion. Therefore requirement of biochemical tests, which are(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to assess health-related quality of life (HRQOL) among chronic hepatitis B (CHB) patients in Turkey and to study related factors. METHODS This multicenter study was carried out between January 01 and April 15, 2015 in Turkey in 57 centers. Adults were enrolled and studied in three groups. Group 1: Inactive HBsAg(More)
BACKGROUND High-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1), identified as an alarmin molecule, was shown to have a role in virus-triggered liver injury. We aimed to evaluate the association between serum levels of HMGB1 and liver fibrosis. METHOD This cross-sectional case-control study included 189 chronic hepatitis B (CHB) patients and 51 healthy controls. All(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the diagnostic factors for brucellar spondylitis. METHODS This retrospective study included 227 consecutive brucellosis patients admitted to the Infectious Diseases and Clinical Microbiology clinics of Adiyaman State Hospital and Adiyaman 82 nd Year State Hospital, Adiyaman, Turkey between January 2010 and December 2012. Acute(More)
OBJECTIVES Crimean Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is the second most common hemorrhagic fever worldwide. This study aimed to evaluate the oxidant-antioxidant balance of patients with CCHF by detecting dynamic thiol disulfide homeostasis (TDH), which is a novel oxidative stress marker, and other molecules, including paraoxonase (PON), arylesterase (ARES),(More)
BACKGROUND Hepatologists have studied serologic markers of liver injury for decades. Annexins are a prominent group of such markers and annexin A2 (AnxA2) is one of the best characterized annexins. AnxA2 inhibits HBV polymerase among other functions. Its expression is up-regulated in regenerative hepatocytes. OBJECTIVES To determine if serum AnxA2 level(More)
