This study assessed the cognitive brain function measured by the cognitive P300 auditory event-related potentials (ERPs) in female fibromyalgia (FM) patients and compared the results with those from healthy age and education-matched controls. The relationship of the P300 potentials to the pain threshold of patients was also investigated. The P300 component(More)
Parkinson's disease (PD) is one of the common neurodegenerative disorders. Oxidative stress is considered as a contributing factor to the development of PD. The present study aims to investigate serum oxidative stress status in patients with PD. Oxidative stress was assessed by measuring serum nitric oxide levels, lipid hydroperoxide concentrations, and(More)
We studied the efficacy and safety of midazolam given as a continuous infusion in the treatment of refractory generalized convulsive status epilepticus (RGCSE). We carried out a prospective, open study, in 19 patients (11 men) with RGCSE in the intensive care unit at Firat Medical Center in Elazig. When intravenous administration of 0.3 mg/kg diazepam(More)
Neurological and structural changes are paralleled by cognitive deficits in diabetes mellitus. The present study was designed to evaluate the expression of neural cell adhesion molecules (NCAM) in the hippocampus, cortex and cerebellum and to examine cognitive functions in diabetic rats. Diabetes was induced in male albino rats via intraperitoneal(More)
Ischemic stroke is one of the most common causes of death worldwide and is most often caused by thrombotic processes. We investigated the changes in hsCRP and homocysteine levels, two of these risk factors, during the acute period of ischemic stroke and evaluated the relationship between these levels and the short-term prognosis. HsCRP and homocysteine(More)
BACKGROUND The P300 components of auditory event related potentials (ERPs) are objective measures related to information and cognitive processing. OBJECTIVES To assess P300 ERPs in female patients with fibromyalgia (FM) in comparison with healthy age matched controls. To investigate the relationship between P300 potentials and pain threshold levels of(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate possible autonomic nervous system (ANS) dysfunction in leprosy patients with the sympathetic skin response (SSR) and the heart rate (R-R) interval variation (RRIV) measurements which are easy and reliable methods for evaluation of autonomic functions. MATERIAL AND METHODS We studied 37 lepromatous leprosy(More)
Bilateral, symmetric, calcium and other mineral deposits occur in basal ganglia, thalamus, cerebellum, and white matter off cerebral hemisphere are rare disorders. Tha basal ganglia are the most common site of involvement. This disease may be lined sporadic such as radiation, systemic disease, toxins, hypoparathroidy, pseudohipoparathroidy and(More)
OBJECTIVE The relationship between the frequency of autonomic dysfunction (AD) and the severity of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) has not been exactly known, despite its importance in the pathogenesis of COPD. Therefore, we aimed to evaluate the relationship between the clinical stage severity of the disease and the frequency of AD in COPD(More)
It has been hypothesized that chronic inflammation may play an important role in the development and progression of the neurodegeneration of Idiopathic Parkinson's disease (IPD). Neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is a marker that indicates the peripheral inflammation. There is only one study regarding NLR and IPD. In this study, we assessed to investigate(More)
