Occupational asthma; the limited role of air-fed respiratory protective equipment
Ilgaz, Aslihan; Moore, Vicky C.; Robertson, Alastair S.; Walters, Gareth I.; Burge, P. Sherwood (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2019-07-01)
Background Evidence-based reviews have found that evidence for the efficacy of respiratory protective equipment (RPE) in the management of occupational asthma (OA) is lacking.
Immunoproteomic analysis of Bordetella pertussis and identification of new immunogenic proteins
Altindis, Emrah; Tefon, Burcu E.; Yildirim, Volkan; Ozcengiz, Erkan; Becher, Doete; Hecker, Michael; Özcengiz, Gülay (Elsevier BV, 2009-01-22)
Bordetella pertussis is the causative agent of highly communicable respiratory infection whooping cough (pertussis) which remains one of the world's leading causes of vaccine-preventable deaths. In the present study, total soluble proteins extracted from two B. pertussis strains, Tohama I and the local isolate Saadet were separated by two-dimensional gel electrophoresis and analyzed by Western blotting for their reactivity with the antisera obtained from the mice immunized with inactivated whole cells as we...
Health problems among UN refugees at a family medical centre in Ankara, Turkey
Yaman, H; Kut, A; Yaman, A; Ungan, M (Informa UK Limited, 2002-06-01)
Objectives - Political lability in the Near East has brought about the migration of refugees from adjacent countries to Turkey in recent years.

Background Political priority pertains to the agenda setting phase of the policy process whereby an issue emerges as one that draws the attention of and triggers action from high-level decision makers. Few studies have investigated why political priority fails to develop or reemerge for certain public health issues in middle-income countries. In Turkey, road traffic injuries are a major cause of mortality and morbidity. Although, the issue has gained attention in recent years, it has, unfortunately, not rec...
Surface water isolates of hemolytic and non-hemolytic Acinetobacter with multiple drug and heavy metal resistance ability
Akbulut, Sevilay; Yilmaz, Fadime; İçgen, Bülent (IWA Publishing, 2014-01-01)
Acinetobacter in surface waters are a major concern because of their rapid development of resistance to a wide range of antimicrobials and their ability to persist in these waters for a very long time. Four surface water isolates of Acinetobacter having both multidrug-and multimetal-resistant ability were isolated and identified through biochemical tests and 16S rDNA sequencing. Based on these analyses, two hemolytic isolates were affiliated with Acinetobacter haemolyticus with an accession number of X81662...
