Evaluation of malignancy with thyroid imaging reporting and data system (TI-RADS) in thyroid nodules with persistent nondiagnostic cytology
Conclusion: In this study, we did not demonstrate any suspicious ultrasound (US) finding predictive for malignancy in thyroid nodules with persistent ND cytology and did not determine any difference between malignant and benign nodules regarding TI-RADS scores. Whereas, we found that thyroid nodules in 4a, 4b, and 4c TI-RADS categories had higher malignancy rates than those previously reported in ND cytology. We think that TI-RADS categories in thyroid nodules with persistent ND cytology can be helpful in treatment decision.

Does hand grip strength decrease in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease exacerbation? A cross-sectional study
Conclusion: In subjects with COPD exacerbation, the HGS was lower than that of stable COPD patients, and this difference was not explained by age, comorbidities, severity of obstruction, or smoking. Physical inactivity and steroid use during exacerbation might be possible factors affecting HGS. HGS was moderately correlated with 6MWD in cases of exacerbation. It may be used as a measure of muscle performance in COPD exacerbation, especially when the 6-min walk test cannot be performed.

CONCLUSION: The ablation zone arced in the presence of surgical clips at the edge or outside the ablation margins; therefore, nearby critical structures may be susceptible to the effects of IRE. Furthermore, there was no physical degradation of the embolic agents or surgical clips, and this may have importance when considering IRE ablation of previously embolized lesions in vivo.

Revealing the Genetic Impact of the Ottoman Occupation on Ethnic Groups of East-Central Europe and on the Roma Population of the Area
History of East-Central Europe has been intertwined with the history of Turks in the past. A significant part of this region of Europe has been fallen under Ottoman control during the 150 years of Ottoman occupation in the 16-17th centuries. The presence of the Ottoman Empire affected this area not only culturally but also demographically. Romani people, largest ethnic minority of the East-Central European area, share an even more eventful past with Turkish people from the time of their migration throughout Eurasia and they were a notable ethnic group in East-Central Europe in the Ottoman era already.

Epidemiological features of tularaemia in Central Anatolia, Turkey.
Abstract Tularaemia has become a public health threat in Turkey. Our aim was to examine the epidemiological characteristics of 154 tularaemia cases reported from Kayseri, Central Anatolia, between 2010 and 2017. Clinical diagnosis was confirmed by micro-agglutination test (≥1/160 titres). Most patients (56.5%) were residing in rural areas. The year with the highest case load was 2011 (40% of all cases). Tularaemia was reported in all seasons, but mostly in February (26.1%). Morbidity rates were higher in women and people aged ≥65 years. The tularaemia incidence in Kayseri was higher than in the whole country...

An approach to the pollution haven and pollution halo hypotheses in MINT countries.
This study examines the nonlinear relationship between foreign direct investment (FDI) and the ecological footprint (EF), trying to confirm the pollution haven hypothesis (PHH). We use a panel data model for MINT (Mexico, Indonesia, Nigeria, and Turkey) countries in the period 1990-2013 and an empirical framework based on the pollution haven hypothesis (PHH). Using the fully modified least squares (FMOLS) and dynamic ordinary least squares (DOLS) econometric methodologies, the empirical results confirm an inverted-U relationship between FDI and the ecological footprint. To reinforce our analysis, we check the connection be...

A truncating CLDN9 variant is associated with autosomal recessive nonsyndromic hearing loss
AbstractWhile the importance of tight junctions in hearing is well established, the role of Claudin- 9 (CLDN9), a tight junction protein, in human hearing and deafness has not been explored. Through whole-genome sequencing, we identified a one base pair deletion (c.86delT) inCLDN9 in a consanguineous family from Turkey with autosomal recessive nonsyndromic hearing loss. Three affected members of the family had sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) ranging from moderate to profound in severity. The variant is predicted to cause a frameshift and produce a truncated protein (p.Leu29ArgfsTer4) in this single-exon gene. It is absen...
