Seroprevalence of hantavirus and Borrelia burgdorferi in D üzce (Turkey) forest villages and the relationship with sociodemographic features
Conclusion: This study was the first to determine the frequency of hantavirus in the study region and it includes current data for B. burgdorferi. Consequently, it is recommended that similar studies be carried out on rodents in all the regions at risk. PMID: 30862151 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Authors: Çimen S, Taşdemir C, Vardı N, Ateş B, Taşdemir S, Özaydoğdu Çimen A Abstract Background/aim: The aim was to investigate the protective and therapeutic effects of ghrelin, which has antioxidant and antiinflammatory activity, on preventing kidney damage that occurs by induced partial ureteral obstruction in rats Materials and methods: Twenty-eight adult male rats were included in the study, and the rats were divided into 4 groups. After the laparotomy operation on the sham group, the ureter was identified in the retroperitoneal area and was duly sutured (n = 7). Ghrelin was admini...
Conclusion: spa typing can be performed to screen for transmission of S. aureus. t786, ST88, and SCCmec IVa MRSA strains were identified for the first time in Turkey. PMID: 30997982 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: Based on the results of our present study, ruxolitinib may potentially lead to the pathological expression of the transcription factors important in lymphoma genesis, neoplastic commitment on the progenitor lymphoid cells, inhibition of repressor transcriptions protective for lymphoma development, inhibition of apoptosis, promotion of neoplastic proliferation, transcriptional activation, and proliferation of malignant neoplastic B cells.

Conclusion: Reduction in TRPM7 ion channel activity may be a progression marker for endometrial hyperplasia regardless of the atypical criteria. PMID: 30997980 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: Esophageal pH values decreased and continued to remain low following IAP increase and TP in this experimental rat model. Prolonged laparoscopic procedures can particularly lead to GER that requires instant recognition and rapid and appropriate intervention. PMID: 30997979 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: Elevated NLR (> 2.11) may be used as a parameter to discriminate secondary EN from idiopathic EN. PMID: 30997978 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: Cardiac left ventricular and arterial functions are affected in psoriatic children and may be an alarming sign of atherosclerotic heart disease in the long term. Early detection of these changes may be helpful for eliminating other risk factors. PMID: 30997977 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: Our results revealed that home-based modified CDT is more effective in reducing extremity edema volume in secondary LEL than primary LEL. It should be an available method for self-management of LEL at all stages. PMID: 30997976 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: This study demonstrates that targeted narrowband UVB therapy is a safe and effective treatment alternative, particularly for alopecia areata, lichen simplex chronicus, and palmoplantar and plaque-type psoriasis. PMID: 30997975 [PubMed]
Authors: Anlıaçık SÖ, Tokgöz S, Zamani AG, Yıldırım MS, İyisoy MS Abstract Background/aim: We aimed to investigate the associations between endothelial nitric oxide synthase(eNOS) gene polymorphisms [G894T (rs1799983)], intron 4 (27-bpTR) variable number tandem repeat (VNTR) and T786C (rs2070744), and ischemic stroke in the Anatolian population. Materials and methods: This case-control study included 112 patients with “stroke of undetermined etiology” and 160 controls. Real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) analysis was used to analyze these polymorphisms. Between-group ...
