BACKGROUND: Community respiratory viruses (CRVs) are associated with upper respiratory viral infections (URI), pneumonia or life-threatening respiratory disease in patients with allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT). Our aim is to demonstrate our URI experience related to CRVs after allo-HSCT. METHODS: From January 2013 to November 2015, 39 post allo-HSCT patients with acute URI symptoms were included to the study. We evaluated CRVs by multiplex PCR from nasopharyngeal wash and throat swabs...

REVIEW
Didem Demirbas, Ana I Coelho, M Estrela Rubio-Gozalbo, Gerard T Berry
Hereditary galactosemia is an inborn error of carbohydrate metabolism. Galactose is metabolized by Leloir pathway enzymes; galactokinase (GALK), galactose-1-phosphate uridylyltransferase (GALT) and UDP-galactose 4-epimerase (GALE). The defects in these enzymes cause galactosemia in an autosomal recessive manner. The common and severe GALT deficiency, or classic galactosemia, is life-threatening in the newborn period. The treatment for classic galactosemia is dietary restriction of lactose. Although implementation of lactose restricted diet is efficient in resolving the acute complications, it is not sufficient to prevent long-term complications affecting the brain and female gonads, the two main target organs of damage...

OBJECTIVES: Kidney transplant is the best choice for treatment of patients with advanced chronic renal disease. However, small, poorly compliant, and unstable bladders can result in major problems for patients. Here, we aimed to develop and evaluate a new ileobladder model. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fifteen rats (250-300 g) and 5 pigs (~100 kg) were cared for according to institutional and published guidelines. After general anesthesia, laparotomy was done through midline incision...

OBJECTIVE: This study was done to compare the intrapulpal temperature change generated by different energy levels of Er:YAG laser used during debonding of ceramic brackets and find the most suitable level for clinical use. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Eighty polycrystalline alumina brackets were bonded on bovine incisor teeth, which were randomly divided into 4 groups of 20. One group was assigned as control. In the study groups, after laser exposure with 2, 4, or 6 Watt energy levels, brackets were debonded using an Instron Universal Testing machine...

Recent progress in the development of silica- and silicon-based multimodality imaging nanoprobes has advanced their use in image-guided drug delivery, and the development of novel systems for nanotheranostic and diagnostic applications. As biocompatible and flexibly tunable materials, silica and silicon provide excellent platforms with high clinical potential in nanotheranostic and diagnostic probes with well-defined morphology and surface chemistry, yielding multifunctional properties. In vivo imaging is of great value in the exploration of methods for improving site-specific nanotherapeutic delivery by silica- and silicon-based drug-delivery systems...

PURPOSE: We aimed to investigate the relation between preoperative serum thyrotrophin (TSH) and clinicopathological features in patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) and microcarcinoma (PTMC). METHODS: Patients who underwent thyroidectomy and diagnosed to have benign nodular disease or PTC/PTMC in our clinic were evaluated retrospectively. Patients with a previous history of thyroid surgery, patients using antithyroid medications or thyroid hormone and patients with tumors known to be unresponsive to TSH were excluded...

BACKGROUND: We aimed to evaluate the effects of complex decongestive therapy (CDT) on upper extremity functions, the severity of pain, and quality of life. We also searched the impact of the sociodemographic and clinical characteristics on the improvement in upper extremity functions. METHODS: A total of 37 women with breast cancer-related lymphedema (BCRL) [age, 53.6 ± 11.2 (28-72)] were included in this study. All patients underwent CDT-phase 1 program, including meticulous skin care, manual lymphatic drainage, remedial exercises, and compression bandages...

In present study, bone ash-reinforced chitosan-based hydrogels were obtained by encapsulation of bone ash into the hydrogel structure which was fabricated by photopolymerization of chitosan-grafted-glycidyl methacrylate (CTS-g-GMA) and poly(ethylene glycol)diacrylate (PEGDA) under the UV light. Hydrogels were characterized by ATR-FTIR, SEM and XRD analyses. Mechanical performance of the hydrogels was determined by universal mechanical tester. Cytotoxicity tests for hydrogels were conducted with L929 cell lines to determine cellular compatibility...

Lupus erythematosus is a chronic autoimmune disease characterized by remissions and exacerbations. Accumulated evidence indicated that matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are upregulated in inflammatory cells of cutaneous lupus erythematosus (CLE); however, the activity levels of these proteases have remained uncharacterized. To elucidate the significance of MMP-2, MMP-9, and TIMP-1 in CLE pathogenesis, gelatin zymography was used to investigate pro and active levels of MMP-2 and MMP-9 in lesional and perilesional skin biopsies obtained from twenty-two CLE patients...

Nearly all manufactured products in the metal industry involve welding. The detection and correction of defects during welding improve the product reliability and quality, and prevent unexpected failures. Nonintrusive process control is critical for avoiding these defects. This paper investigates the detection of burn-through damage using noncontact, air-coupled ultrasonics, which can be adapted to the immediate and in-situ inspection of welded samples. The burn-through leads to a larger volume of degraded weld zone, providing a resistance path for the wave to travel which results in lower velocity, energy ratio, and amplitude...

Microvascular changes play central roles in the pathophysiology of systemic sclerosis (SSc) and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), and represent major causes of morbidity and mortality in these patients. Therefore, clinical tools that can assess the microvasculature are of great importance both at the time of diagnosis and follow up of these cases. These tools include capillaroscopy, laser imaging techniques, infrared thermography and iontophoresis. In this review, we examined the clinical manifestations and pathobiology of microvascular involvement in SSc and SLE as well as the methodologies used to evaluate the microvasculature...

The interaction between disulfiram (Antabus®) and silica was studied experimentally by adsorption from apolar solvent onto highly porous silica material (Santa Barbara Amorphous material-3, SBA-3) with large surface area. The adsorption isotherm was fitted to the Langmuir model by accounting two different affinities contributing to the overall behavior, which were attributed to two different types of silanol groups (i.e. geminal and vicinal) present on amorphous silica surfaces. This assumption was supported by theoretical calculations...

Viral hepatitis is the most common cause of serious health problems such as liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Leading to immunodeficiency disorders through different mechanisms, Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) causes the development of severe secondary infections. Hepatitis A (HAV) is thought to spread by the faecal-oral route, while Hepatitis B (HBV), Hepatitis C (HCV) and HIV are mostly transmitted vertically during childhood. In our study, we aimed to determine the seroprevalence of HAV, HBV, HCV and HIV among Syrian refugee children who were admitted to outpatient clinics...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of different degrees of obstruction, and the roles of inflammation, oxidative stress, and hypoxia parameters on bladder function. METHODS: Thirty male Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into 3 groups (n = 10 in each group): (i) sham-operated control; (ii) severe partial bladder outlet obstruction (PBOO); and (iii) moderate PBOO. Severe and moderate PBOO were induced by urethral ligation using 3-Fr and 4-Fr catheters, respectively, for 6 weeks...

BACKGROUND: Metabolic syndrome (MetS), as a cluster of metabolic derangements which is major risk factors for vascular disease, is one of the most important threats to public health. Although the epidemiological and limited amount of basic science and clinical evidence link MetS to several male urogenital disorders, a holistic approach aiming to define common mechanistic pathways and new possible therapeutic targets are lacking. OBJECTIVE: The current review has focused on providing scientific evidence on the role of MetS and its components on male urogenital disorders and the definition of new therapeutic targets...
