Cyprus turkish fairy tales: glimpse of a harmonious past.
CYPRUS TURKISH FAIRY TALES: GLIMPSE OF A HARMONIOUS PAST. Am J Psychoanal. 2015 Dec;75(4):382-93 Authors: Beyoğlu E Abstract On the island of Cyprus, believed to be the birthplace of Aphrodite, the Muslim minority (settled there following the Ottoman conquest of the island in 1571) and Orthodox Christians (the native majority) lived together in peace for hundreds of years. However, as a result of ethnic conflict in the late 1950s, the Muslim Cypriot Turks established their own political state in the north of the island in 1974, and Cyprus was divided into northern Turkish and southern Greek sections. This paper attempts to examine historical, religious, cultural and psychological aspects of the relationship between these two large groups, prior to recent conflicts, by studying fairy tales told by Turkish Cypriots about a hundred years ago. It is hoped that this paper will encourage similar studies of other communities where different large-group identities live side by side, and that such studies may support their peaceful co-existence.

CONCLUSIONS Our study found that adherence to SCIT is low in a real-life setting in southeast Turkey, similar to most previous adherence studies. PMID: 30537763 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS HMGB1 is an independent prognostic biomarker for unfavorable prognosis of patients with GBM. Released HMGB1 of GBM cells can activate AKT and ERK signaling pathways and promote GBM cells invasion in this autocrine pathway, indicating that anti-HMGB1 therapy may be a promising treatment for GBM.

This study aimed to investigate the effects of metformin and acarbose treatment on urine albumin excretion in Chinese patients with newly diagnosed diabetes and low-grade albuminuria. MATERIAL AND METHODS Patients with newly diagnosed diabetes (n=589) were divided into Group I (with a baseline UACR
Authors: Erkent M, Şahiner İT, Bala M, Kendirci M, Yıldırım MB, Topçu R, Bostanoğlu S, Dolapcı M Abstract BACKGROUND Pilonidal sinus (PS) is a common disease of the sacrococcygeal-natal region. There are many treatment options, but there is still no consensus on the ideal treatment. We compared the results of our PS patients who were treated with primary midline closure (PMC), Limberg flap repair (LFR), and Karydakis flap (KF). MATERIAL AND METHODS The data for 924 PS patients from 2013 to 2017 were retrospectively examined. Demographic data, surgical procedures, schedules, and recurrence rates were e...
CONCLUSIONS This noninvasive, simple, and cost-effective method is a potential treatment strategy for focal cerebral ischemic injury. PMID: 30531687 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS Muscone improved cardiac function in MI mice through augmented angiogenesis. The potential mechanism of muscone treatment in regulating angiogenesis of MI mice was upregulating expression levels of HIF-1α and VEGFA. PMID: 30531686 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS Our findings indicate that resveratrol induces apoptosis via HIF-1α/ROS/p53 signaling in prostate cancer cells and may be a useful therapeutic agent against prostate cancer. PMID: 30531685 [PubMed - in process]
Authors: He J, Liu Y, Zhang L, Zhang H Abstract BACKGROUND ITGB8 encodes a β subunit of integrin (integrin β8), which is upregulated in some types of cancer. In the current study, we examined the expression profile of ITGB8 in serous ovarian cancer (SOVC) and investigated its potential as an independent prognostic indicator for overall survival (OS) and recurrence-free survival (RFS) in high-grade SOVC. MATERIAL AND METHODS A secondary study was conducted based on genomic and survival data in large online databases, including the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO), the Human Protein Atlas (HPA), and the Cancer...
