OBJECTIVE The effects of low-level laser therapy (LLLT) on a bone defect model in streptozotocin-induced diabetic (STZ-D) rats was examined. BACKGROUND DATA LLLT accelerates bone fracture repair in healthy animals, but its effect in diabetic animals is unclear. METHODS Twenty-eight rats were divided into five groups: 1 (diabetes, no LLLT), 2 (diabetes,(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study was to examine the effects of low-level laser therapy (LLLT) on the tibia of streptozotocin-induced diabetic (STZ-D) rats. BACKGROUND DATA LLLT has been found to accelerate fracture healing in animals. Diabetes mellitus decreases bone volume and its biomechanical parameters. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty rats were(More)
The purpose of the present study was to investigate the development of follicles and incidence of apoptosis in vitrified neonatal mouse ovaries cultured in vitro in the presence of leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF). The vitrified and non-vitrified ovaries of 1-week-old mouse were cultured in the presence or absence of LIF for 7 days. At the beginning and at(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to investigate follicular growth and steroid production in neonatal mouse ovary during in vitro culture. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this experimental study, 7-day-old mouse whole ovaries were cultured in α-MEM (medium supplemented with 100 mIU/ml recombinant follicle stimulating hormone, 1% insulin, transferrin and(More)
One of the uncommon congenital variations is intrathoracic rib which a normal, a bifid, or an accessory rib lies within the thoracic cavity that is founded accidentally. Clinically, in most cases they are without symptoms; however, it may cause intrathoracic problems therefore it is important for radiologists and physicians to identify to prevent of(More)
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer type in men and is the second cause of death, due to cancer, in patients over 50, after lung cancer. Prostate specific antigen (PSA) is a widely used tumor marker for prostate cancer. Recently, PSA is discovered in non-prostatic cancer tissues in men and women raising doubts about its specificity for prostatic(More)
OBJECTIVE The effect of light therapy (LT) on surgically created partial osteotomy in streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic rats was examined. BACKGROUND DATA LT has been shown to enhance bone repair in healthy human and animal models. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty male rats were divided into groups 1 to 5. Diabetes was induced in rats of groups 1, 2, and(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of Kit Ligand (KL) on the growth of vitrified follicle, oocyte quality, and embryo development in two- and three-dimensional culture systems. Vitrified and nonvitrified mouse whole ovaries were cultured for 1 week, then their isolated preantral follicles were cultured for 12 days in two- or three-dimensional(More)
To investigate the development of follicles and incidence of apoptosis in vitrified cultured mouse ovaries in the presence and absence of Kit ligand, 1-week-old mouse ovaries were cultured in the presence or absence of Kit ligand for 7 days. Development and function of ovarian follicles was evaluated by histology and hormonal analysis. Apoptosis assessment(More)
