Severe neonatal hyperbilirubinemia in the south-east region of Turkey.

Severe neonatal hyperbilirubinemia in the south-east region of Turkey. Turk J Med Sci. 2019 Nov 14;: Authors: Bozkurt Ö, Yücesoy E, Oğuz B, Akinel Ö, Palali MF, Ataş N Abstract BACKGROUND/AIM: Severe neonatal hyperbilirubinemia, is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in developing countries. The aim was to assess etiologic reasons for development of severe hyperbilirubinemia and to define risk factors for exchange transfusion and acute bilirubin encephalopathy (ABE) in Sanliurfa located in south-east region of Turkey. MATERIALS AND METHODS: An observational cohort study included 115 infants with ? 35 weeks? gestation admitted with diagnosis of severe hyperbilirubinemia in a period of 18 months. Potential risk factors associated with exchange transfusion and development of ABE were analyzed. RESULTS: Of the 115 infants, 67 (58.3%) received exchange transfusion and 45 (39.1%) developed ABE. Rh isoimmunization (OR: 24.6, 95% CI = 2.2- 271, p = 0.009), glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency (G6PD) (OR: 21.1, 95% CI = 1.8-238.4, p = 0.01), early discharge (OR: 14.4, 95% CI = 4.2-48.9, p =

Here we show by spectrofluorometric analysis, thermal and urea denaturation, and trypsin proteolysis, that a different mechanism stabilizes the enzyme from Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PaG6PDH) (EC 1.1.1.363). The spectrofluorometric analysis of the emission of 8-anilino-1-naphthalenesulfon...

L-glutamine (GLN) has been shown to exert a modulatory effect in metabolic disorders-related syndromes. We therefore hypothesized that GLN supplementation would protect against myocardial and renal glycogen-lipid mishandling in COC-treated animals by mod...

In conclusion, we found that microRNAs upregulated in renal cancer contribute to disturbed expression of key genes involved in the regulation of RCC metabolome. miR-146a-5p and miR-155-5p emerge as a key “metabomiRs” that target genes of crucial metabolic pathways (PPP (the pentose phosphate pathway), TCA cycle, and arginine metabolism).

Abstract Mitochondrial alternative NADH dehydrogenase (aNDH) was found to extend lifespan when expressed in the fruit fly. We have found that fruit flies expressing aNDH from Ciona intestinalis (NDX) had 17-71% lifespan prolongation on media with different protein-tocarbohydrate ratios except NDX-expressing males that had 19% shorter lifespan than controls on a high protein diet. NDX-expressing flies were more resistant to organic xenobiotics, 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid and alloxan, and inorganic toxicant potassium iodate, and partially to sodium molybdate treatments. On the other hand, NDX-expressing fli...

Conclusion The current study augments the etiological role of G6PD in the causation and severity of NHB in the region; however, in the absence of significant difference in the reticulocytes and the hemoglobin level, the underlying mechanism cannot be backed to the excess hemolysis alone.

Abstract Perilla oil (PerO), a natural oil with a high unsaturated fatty acid content derived from the mature seeds of Perilla frutescens, is a homology of medicine and food. The type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) model was successfully established using a high-fat and high-sugar diet combined with a single low-dose of streptozocin (STZ). PerO intervention reduced the levels of fasting blood glucose and the level, size and accumulation of lipid droplets, increased the insulin level and diminished the body weight loss. PerO pretreatment markedly promoted the serum levels of alanine transaminase (ALT) and aspartate tra...
