Investigation Of The Bactericidal Effects Of Vancomycin And Quinupristin/Dalfopristin On Staphylococcus Aureus Isolates, Mi̇ne Hoşgör Li̇moncu, Şafak Ermertcan, Güner Coşar

Turkish Journal of Medical Sciences

The present study aimed to determine the correlation between the bactericidal activity of vancomycin and quinupristin/dalfopristin (Q/D) on Staphylococcus aureus isolates and their minimal inhibition concentrations. The in-vitro susceptibilities of the 99 S. aureus isolates to vancomycin and Q/D were investigated by agar dilution. Thirty methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) and 30 methicillin-susceptible S. aureus (MSSA) vancomycin and Q/D susceptible isolates were involved in time-kill studies. While both MRSA and MSSA isolates were susceptible to vancomycin, 96% of both isolates were determined as susceptible to Q/D. In the time-kill test, after 6 h of incubation vancomycin exhibited a bactericidal activity of …

Turkish Journal of Medical Sciences

This study was performed to determine the body fat percentage, fat distribution and plasma lipid-cholesterol levels of patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). We compared the body fat percentage, distribution and lipid profile in 22 patients with definitive diagnosis of MS and age and height matched 16 healthy control subjects on normal diets. Poser criteria was used to determine the MS diagnosis. Body fat percentage and distribution were evaluated anthropometrically by measuring skin fold thickness from 7 different reference points of the body. The parameters of the body composition were obtained by using the equations of Durning, Womersly and Siri. Body …

Evaluation Of Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields On Bone Healing After Implant Placement In The Rabbit Mandibular Model, Jüli̇de Özen, Arzu Atay, Selçuk Oruç, Mehmet Dalkiz, Bedri̇ Beydemi̇r, Sali̇h Develi̇

Turkish Journal of Medical Sciences

Although bone healing around titanium implants has already been evaluated, the effect of pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) during the period of bone maturation around titanium dental implants has not yet been investigated. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of PEMFs on bone formation following the insertion of titanium-dental implants in the rabbit mandibular model. Ti-6Al-4V (Sulzer Calcitek, California, USA) dental implants were inserted into the mandibulae of 28 New Zealand rabbits (6 weeks old). Fourteen were stimulated with PEMFs for 2 consecutive weeks, 4 h/day, at a magnetic intensity of 0.2 milli Tesla (mT), while the …

Serological Evaluation Of Hsv-1 And Hsv-2 Infection In Pregnancy, Ni̇zami̇ Duran

Turkish Journal of Medical Sciences

We performed a serological evaluation of herpes simplex virus (HSV) infections at the time of labor. In order to determine the seroprevalence of asymptomatic HSV infections in pregnant women, blood samples were collected for antibody measurement from 130 randomly selected pregnant women. Presence of HSV IgG and IgM antibodies in the serum samples was tested by ELISA. The prevalence of HSV-1 gG1 antibodies was 90% (117/130), that of HSV-2 gG2 antibodies was 63.1% (82/130) and that of HSV-2 IgM antibodies was 13.8% (18/130). Eight (44.4%) of the pregnant women with HSV-2 IgM were at the same time found to have …

The osseous sulcus angle of 28 male right, 22 male left, 21 female right and 29 female left knees was measured on magnetic resonance images (MRIs) and by a goniometer; the angle was measured in 40 right and 40 left femurs. In MRIs, the mean sulcus angle in males and in females was 134° ± …


Systemic Responses To Burn Injury, Bariş Çakir, Berrak C. Yeğen Jan 2004

Systemic Responses To Burn Injury, Bariş Çakir, Berrak C. Yeğen

Turkish Journal of Medical Sciences

The major causes of death in burn patients include multiple organ failure and infection. It is important for the clinician to understand the pathophysiology of burn injury and the effects it will have on the pharmacokinetics of a drug. The local and systemic inflammatory response to thermal injury is extremely complex, resulting in both local burn tissue damage and deleterious systemic effects on all other organ systems distant from the burn area itself. Thermal injury initiates systemic inflammatory reactions producing burn toxins and oxygen radicals and finally leads to peroxidation. The relationship between the amount of products of oxidative metabolism …

Genotoxic Evaluation Of The Antibacterial Drug, Ciprofloxacin, In Cultured Lymphocytes Of Patients With Urinary Tract Infection, Mevli̇t İkbal, Hasan Doğan, Hati̇ce Odabaş, İbrahi̇m Pi̇ri̇m Jan 2004

Genotoxic Evaluation Of The Antibacterial Drug, Ciprofloxacin, In Cultured Lymphocytes Of Patients With Urinary Tract Infection, Mevli̇t İkbal, Hasan Doğan, Hati̇ce Odabaş, İbrahi̇m Pi̇ri̇m

Turkish Journal of Medical Sciences

Ciprofloxacin is a quinolone carboxylic acid derivative and is commonly used in medicine. The genotoxicity of ciprofloxacin was evaluated in cultured human peripheral blood lymphocytes in patients with urinary tract infection. Sister chromatid exchange (SCE), mitotic index (MI) and replicative index (RI) were measured before and after ciprofloxacin therapy. Our results showed that SCE frequency significantly increased after ciprofloxacin therapy (P < 0.001), but MI and RI decreased (P < 0.001). The results of this study suggest that clinical therapy using ciprofloxacin may have a moderate genotoxic potential.

Mechanisms Of Glybenclamide-Mediated Anti-Arrhythmia And Ischemic Conditionining In A Rat Model Of Myocardial Infarction: Role Of Yohimbine Treatment, Ömer Bozdoğan, Ersöz Gonca, Eylem Suveren Ti̇ryaki̇, Fati̇h Gökçe Jan 2004

Mechanisms Of Glybenclamide-Mediated Anti-Arrhythmia And Ischemic Conditionining In A Rat Model Of Myocardial Infarction: Role Of Yohimbine Treatment, Ömer Bozdoğan, Ersöz Gonca, Eylem Suveren Ti̇ryaki̇, Fati̇h Gökçe

Turkish Journal of Medical Sciences

Glibenclamide (Glyburide), a widely used second-generation sulfonylurea hypoglycemic agent, is a known specific blocker of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) sensitive potassium (K+) channels. Although the blockage of the ATP dependent potassium channel reduces arrhythmia, it increases enfarct size. Yohimbine is an alpha-2 blocker that reduces infarct size as suggested by several studies. We hypothesized that a combination of yohimbine and glibenclamide may be more effective in reducing the arrhythmia following ligation. The arteria descendence (LAD) branch of the left coronary artery in conscious rats was ligated and arrhythmia was recorded during the 15 min following coronary ligation. Sixteen hours after coronary …

The aim of this study was to examine the effects of weight loss induced by pharmacotherapy combined with a hypocaloric diet for a period of 8-weeks on maximal work (Wmax) production capacity and aerobic fitness in obese patients. Twelve obese females were put on an integrated energy restricted diet with orlistat supplement 3 x 120 mg/day. Each patient performed 3 incremental ramp exercise tests using an electromagnetically braked cycle ergometer: one at onset, one at the end of 4-weeks and one at the end of the 8-weeks to determine Wmax production capacity. The first 4-week therapy period resulted in a …

Alopecia areata (AA) is a common cause of non-scarring alopecia characterized by patchy hair loss. AA is difficult to treat because of its chronic and inflammatory nature. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of low-dose systemic corticosteroids in the treatment of AA. Fifteen patients with AA were included in this study. Systemic prednisolone 10-15 mg/day on 2 consecutive days per week for 6 months was administered. Fourteen patients (93.3%) had patchy alopecia areata. One patient (6.3%) had alopecia universalis. Seven (46.7%) patients showed complete healing, 5 (33.3%) showed partial response and 3 (20%) did not …
