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).

Synopsis: 
We evaluated the efficacy of allergic rhinitis treatment on attention deficit and hyperactivity symptoms in paediatric allergic rhinitis. We found that the combination of fluticasone furoate nasal spray and levocetirizine tablet may improve attention deficit and hyperactivity symptoms.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Allergic rhinitis (AR) may cause neurobehavioural symptoms and impair quality of life (QoL). We evaluated the efficacy of AR treatment on QoL, attention deficit and hyperactivity symptoms in paediatric allergic rhinitis.
