DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.444
Synopsis: 
Wolf berry extract has certain anti-aging, neuroprotective, anti-fatigue/endurance-increasing, and anti-oxidant biological effects with anti-tumor activity and cytoprotection. The protective effect of Wolf berry against acetic acid-induced colitis in rats and Wolf berry extract effectiveness were investigated in this study.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The aim of the present study was to investigate the protective effect of WB against acetic acid-induced colitis in rats.

Protective Effect of Montelukast Sodium in Acute Ethyl Alcohol-induced Hepatic Injury in Rats

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.431
Synopsis: 
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of montelukast sodium on acute hepatopathy induced by ethyl alcohol in rats. The liver tissue, and biochemical parameters were assessed. Montelukast sodium administration had beneficial effects in alleviating ethyl alcohol-induced hepatotoxicity.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Ethyl alcohol (EA) is a substance that is used commonly worldwide and known to have toxic effects on the liver. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of montelukast sodium (MK) on acute hepatopathy induced by a single dose of EA in rats.

A Novel Marker Demonstrating Endothelial Dysfunction in Behçet's Disease, YKL-40

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.025
Synopsis: 
This study demonstrated that serum YKL-40 level was significantly higher in patients with an active and inactive Behçet's disease (BD) compared to the healthy individuals. This difference was, however, not the case between the active and inactive disease groups.

ABSTRACT

Background: To evaluate the relationship between disease activity and levels of YKL-40 in patients with Behcet’s disease (BD).

Methods: Twenty five active and twenty six inactive BD patients and 24 age and gender matched healthy control subjects were included in the study. Serum YKL-40 levels were measured using Enzyme Linked Immuno Sorbent Assay (ng/mL). Disease activity was assessed using Behcet’s Disease Current Activity Form (BDCAF).

Is Imatinib Protective Against to Osteoporosis? - A Comparative Study in Terms of Bone Densitometry on Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia Patients and Healthy Volunteers

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.447
Synopsis: 
Previous studies have shown that imatinib affects bone metabolism in chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients. We aimed in this study to investigate whether the inhibition of tyrosine kinase is a new potential target against osteoporosis which is an important issue for public health.

Atrial Electromechanical Delay and P-wave Dispersion Before and After Haemodialysis in Patients with End-stage Renal Failure

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.190
Synopsis: 
Atrial fibrillation is a dangerous condition and maintaining sinus rhythm is crucial for patients with end-stage renal disease. Haemodialysis sessions have favourable hemodynamic effects which result in the decrement in atrial electromechanical delay and P-wave dispersion.

ABSTRACT

Background: Electromechanical delay (EMD) has been defined as the temporal interval between the onset of cardiac electrical activity and myocardial contraction. Atrial EMD is considered as an independent predictor of atrial fibrillation. In this study, we sought to evaluate the effect of hemodialysis (HD) on atrial electromechanical properties and conduction homogeneity in patients with end-stage renal failure (ESRF).
