Comparison of the biochemical and radiological criteria for lumbar disc degeneration
Background: The relationship between radiological degeneration criteria on lumbar magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and both the keratan sulfate (KS) and chondroitin sulfate (ChS) levels was examined in disc material taken ...
Elevated Nitrosative Stress in Children with Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria
Background: Chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU) is an idiopathic condition that seriously affects quality of life. It is well known that oxidative stress and nitrosative stress (NS) are generally involved in many chronic ...
Evaluation of residual monomer release and toxicity of self-adhesive resin cements
The aim of this study was to evaluate the amount of leached residual monomers from self-adhesive resin cements and evaluate their toxicity in-vitro. A total of 60 disk-shaped specimens (5 mm in diameter and 0.5 mm in ...
Cathelicidin (LL-37) and human 2-defensin levels of children with post-infectious bronchiolitis obliterans
IntroductionThe antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) human -defensins and cathelicidin (LL-37) are key factors in innate and adaptive immune responses of the respiratory tract and play an important role in many respiratory diseases. ...
Vitamin B-12 treatment reduces mononuclear DNA damage
Background: DNA damage effects of vitamin B-12 deficiency were performed in vitro and in adults.
Association of parity with osteoprotegerin levels and atherosclerosis
Purpose Association of serum osteoprotegerin (OPG) levels and cardiovascular disorders has been shown previously. The aim of this observational study was to investigate the relationship between parity, OPG and carotid ...
Oxidative and antioxidative balance in patients of migraine.
Background: Migraine is characterized by multiple attacks of severe headaches often unilateral. The molecular mechanisms of migraine have not yet been clearly defined. Disorders of oxidant-antioxidant balance are observed ...
Increased oxidative stress in preschool children exposed to passive smoking
Objectives: To study the effect of passive cigarette smoking on plasma oxidative and antioxidative status in passive smoking preschool children and to compare them with controls.
Impact of contrast enhanced MRI on lymphocyte DNA damage and serum visfatin level
Objectives: Nephrogenic systemic fibrosis is a novel clinical entity encountered in subjects undergoing contrast enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The aim of the present study is to evaluate the impact of contrast ...
