The reactive oxygen species take role in pathogenesis of many diseases including hypoxia, hypercholesterolemia, atherosclerosis, nephropathy, hypertension, ischemia-reperfusion damage, and heart defects. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether crocin administration could protect kidney injury from oxidative stress in streptozotocin-induced diabetic(More)
In this study, physicochemical and microbiological properties of traditional and commercial yogurt samples were determined during 4 wk of storage. Proteolytic activity, which occurs during the storage period of yogurt samples, was also determined. Peptide fractions obtained from yogurts were investigated and the effect of proteolysis on peptide release(More)
From November 3, 1975 to November 3, 1990, 874 kidney transplants were performed at our centers. Of these, 675 (77.2%) were from living donors and 199 (22.8%) were from cadaver donors. Five hundred eighty (66.4%) of the living donors were first degree related while 99 (11.3%) were unrelated or second degree related donors, 29 of which were spouses. All(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the effect of immunoregulatory cytokine interleukin-10 (IL-10) gene therapy on multiple organ injury (MOI) induced by a cecal ligation and puncture (CLP) model of sepsis in mice. Male Balb/c mice subjected to CLP were treated with either an hIL-10-carrying vector or an empty control vector. We assessed the degree of(More)
In this study, 2 different starter culture combinations were prepared for cheesemaking. Starter culture combinations were formed from 8 strains of lactic acid bacteria. They were identified as Lactococcus lactis ssp. lactis (2 strains), Lactobacillus plantarum (5 strains), and Lactobacillus paraplantarum (1 strain) by amplified fragment length polymorphism(More)
A case of primary hyperaldosteronism due to an adrenal adenoma with near syncope and torsade de pointes is described. A woman patient had a history of high blood pressure and severe hypokalemia that was the cause of her ventricular arrhythmia, which was controlled by administering potassium supplementation but no antiarrhythmic medication. Adrenal adenoma(More)
The aim of the current study was to investigate the outcomes in a rat model of an acute swimming exercise induced oxidative stress in brain, kidney, liver, skeletal and cardiac muscles using supplementation with crocin. Rats were divided into the eight groups; Normal Control (NC: Untreated and did not swim), Crocin Control (CC: Received crocin and did not(More)
