Background: Prior studies suggested that glycans were differentially expressed in patients with ovarian cancer and controls. Wehypothesized that glycan-based biomarkers might serve as a diagnostic test for ovarian cancer and evaluated the ability of glycans to distinguish ovarian cancer cases from matched controls.

Alternative Polyadenylation patterns for novel gene discovery and classification in cancer
Beğik, Oğuzhan; Öyken, Merve; Can, Tolga; Erson Bensan, Ayşe Elif (2017-06-03)
Certain aspects of diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of cancer patients are still important challenges to be addressed. Therefore, we propose a pipeline to uncover patterns of alternative polyadenylation (APA), a hidden complexity in cancer transcriptomes, to further accelerate efforts to discover novel cancer genes and pathways. Here, we analyzed expression data for 1,045 cancer patients and found a significant shift in usage of poly(A) signals in cancers. Using machine-learning techniques, we further def...

Certain aspects of diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment of cancer patients are still important challenges to be addressed. Therefore, we propose a pipeline to uncover patterns of alternative polyadenylation (APA), a hidden complexity in cancer transcriptomes, to further accelerate efforts to discover novel cancer genes and pathways. Here, we analyzed expression data for 1045 cancer patients and found a significant shift in usage of poly(A) signals in common tumor types (breast, colon, lung, prostate, gastric...
Evaluation of high hydrostatic pressure effects on bovine red blood cells and platelets
Ceylan, Cagatay; Severcan, Mete; Bozoglu, Faruk; Severcan, Feride (Informa UK Limited, 2009-01-01)
The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of high hydrostatic pressure (HHP) on the stability of red blood cells (RBCs) and platelets. Bovine blood cells (n=5) were treated with the pressure of 55, 110, 154 and 220MPa at 25C for 5min. Light microscopy, atomic force microscopy and flow cytometry studies revealed that RBCs were morphologically stable up until the 220MPa pressure treatments, at which surface modifications were observed. The platelets were found to be less stable than RBCs. HHP...
The evaluation of psychotherapists in movies in terms of emotional intelligence
Banlı Pala, Müge; Gençöz, Faruk; Department of Psychology (2009)
The aim of the current study was to investigate the impact of psychotherapists’ Emotional Intelligence (EI) on adolescent patients’ perceptions about psychotherapists’ success and on adolescent patients’ preference about psychotherapists to consult. In order to examine EI level of psychotherapists who are represented in selected movies, the Scale for Evaluating Psychotherapist’s Emotional Intelligence was created for specific to this study. 50 high school students aged between 16 and 18 were participated in...
Testing the caregiver stress model with the primary caregivers of schizophrenic patients
Konağ, Özlem; Bozo Özen, Özlem; Department of Psychology (2011)
The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between the stressors of caregiving for a schizophrenic patient and related outcomes. The Caregiver Stress Model was used as the conceptual framework for the current study. The sample of the study was composed of 98 Turkish caregivers of schizophrenic patients who were treated at psychiatry clinics of hospitals in Ankara. Twelve mediation models were tested using marital satisfaction and social support as mediators. The models contained primary stressor ...
