Expression of survivin and its splice variants in pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia
(Mary Ann Liebert, Inc, 2018)
Aims: Survivin is involved in the inhibition of apoptosis and the regulation of cell division. In addition to wild-type survivin (survivin-wt), at least four splice variants with differential functions (Delta Ex3 and 3B ...
Nutcracker syndrome in children: role of doppler ultrasonographic indices in detecting the pattern of symptoms
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical characteristics of 44 pediatric patients who were diagnosed as having nutcracker syndrome (NCS). We also investigated the left renal vein Doppler ultrasonography (DUS) ...
Evaluation of autonomic nervous system functions in frame of heart rate variability in children with inflammatory bowel disease in remission
(Turkish J Pediatrics, 2018)
Heart Rate Variability (HRV) is one of the reliable and noninvasive parameters to evaluate autonomic control of the cardiovascular system in patients. The aim of our study was to assess autonomic function in pediatric ...
Disseminated fungal infection by Aureobasidium pullulans in a renal transplant recipient
Renal transplant recipients are on long-term potent immunosuppressive therapy, which makes them highly vulnerable to opportunistic fungal infections. Dematiaceous, or dark-pigmented saprophytic fungi, are being increasingly ...
Assessment of bioelectrical impedance analysis for determining dry weight in pediatric hemodialysis patients; single center experience
Aim: Maintaining euvolemia is an important purpose in patients on hemodialysis therapy. Multiple-frequency bioimpedance spectroscopy (BIS) appears to be a useful and appropriate technique for assessing hydration status and ...
