Aims: The purpose of the study was to establish whether the patients presenting with abdominal pain should undergo to contrast enhanced CT (Computed tomography). For this purpose, we have investigated the possible relationship between CRP (C-reactive protein),WBC (White blood cell), neutrophil levels and the presence of pathological findings determined on abdominal pelvic CT images.

A microfluidic system for dielectrophoretic characterization of cancer cells
Sel, Kaan; Külah, Haluk; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2018)
Dielectrophoresis (DEP) is a promising cell manipulation approach for early diagnosis of cancer, which significantly increases chances of successful treatment. Compared to other cell manipulation techniques that rely on surface antigens, DEP systems enable label-free, cost-effective, simply-implementable cell characterization and separation. However, separation efficiency of the DEP based systems is limited and still far from meeting the medical requirements for early cancer detection. In order to improve t...
A systematic review of the reliability of objective structured clinical examination scores
Brannick, Michael T.; Erol-Korkmaz, H. Tugba; Prewett, Matthew (2011-12-01)
CONTEXT The objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) is comprised of a series of simulations used to assess the skill of medical practitioners in the diagnosis and treatment of patients. It is often used in high-stakes examinations and therefore it is important to assess its reliability and validity.
The association between metabolic syndrome and its components with systemic lupus erythematosus: a comprehensive systematic review and meta-analysis of observational studies
Hallajzadeh, J.; Khoramdad, M.; Izadi, N.; Karamzad, N.; Almasi-Hashiani, A.; Ayubi, E.; Qorbani, M.; Pakzad, R.; Sullman, M. J. M.; Safiri, S. (2018-05-01)
Objectives: Based upon inflammatory-related factors in chronic systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), as well as the long-term prescription of corticosteroids, metabolic syndrome (MetS) prevalence is expected to be higher in SLE patients than among those without SLE. The aim of this study was to systematically analyze: (1) the worldwide prevalence of MetS in patients with SLE using different criteria, (2) the risk of MetS in patients with SLE compared with those without SLE, and (3) the risk of MetS component ...
Predicting intraoperative pain in emergency endodontic patients: clinical study
Yucel, Olga; Ekici, Mugem Asli; İlk Dağ, Özlem; İLHAN, MUSTAFA NECMİ; KAYAOĞLU, GÜVEN (2018-01-01)
This prospective observational study sought to investigate the incidence of intraoperative pain (IOP) among emergency endodontic patients and to construct an IOP prediction model that includes preoperative pain level (PPL). All patients who underwent emergency endodontic treatment at Gazi University, Ankara, Turkey, during the spring term of 2016 were considered for inclusion in the study. Demographic and clinical variables and PPL were recorded. Local anesthesia was provided to all patients before beginnin...
The overexpression of DNA repair genes in invasive ductal and lobular breast carcinomas: Insights on individual variations and precision medicine
Mohamed, Ruwaa; Bargal, Salma A.; Mekawy, Asmaa S.; El-Shiekh, Iman; Tunçbağ, Nurcan; Ahmed, Alaa S.; Badr, Eman; Elserafy, Menattallah (2021-03-01)
In the era of precision medicine, analyzing the transcriptomic profile of patients is essential to tailor the appropriate therapy. In this study, we explored transcriptional differences between two invasive breast cancer subtypes; infiltrating ductal carcinoma (IDC) and lobular carcinoma (LC) using RNA-Seq data deposited in the TCGA-BRCA project. We revealed 3854 differentially expressed genes between normal ductal tissues and IDC. In addition, IDC to LC comparison resulted in 663 differentially expressed g...
