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)
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)
Parkinson's disease (PD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by loss of dopaminergic (DA) neurons in the substantia nigra pars compacta (SNpc). Oxidative stress has been hypothesized to play a major role in the development of PD in various studies. This study assessed to investigate oxidative and anti-oxidative status in PD patients.(More)
Tension-type headache (TTH) is one of the most common and costly primary types of headache in clinical practice, with an unknown etiology. This study assessed to investigate oxidative and antioxidative status in patients with chronic tension-type headache (CTTH), and to evaluate possible effect of medical treatment. The study included 41 CTTH patients and(More)
When managing therapy for the post-lumbar puncture headaches (PLPHs), an efficacious, fast-acting, practical and safe method is preferred. Invasive methods have known complications and oral medications might be problematic when nausea and vomiting occurs with severe headaches. The aim of this study was to highlight the brief initial time for a remarkable(More)
Migraine patients have an increased risk to develop deep white matter hyperintensities (WMH) than the general population. Oxidative stress is believed to play a role in the pathogenesis of migraine. The present study was undertaken to assess oxidant/antioxidant balance of migraineurs with and without WMH. We hypothesized that increased oxidative stress and(More)
The von Willebrand factor (vWF) levels increase in acute-phase ischemic stroke because of endothelial dysfunction and thrombus formation and may reduce acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) efficiency in hemostatic cascade. The aim of the study is to investigate the relationship between vWF levels and ASA resistance in ischemic stroke patients. Fifty acute ischemic(More)
