Calcite (CaCO3) is a geologically abundant material, which can be used as a starting material in producing biomedical scaffolds for clinical dental and orthopedic applications. Bone-filling applications require porous, biocompatible, and resorbable materials. Commercially available CaCO3 powders were physically mixed, for 80-90 s, with an orthophosphoric acid (H3PO4) solution, which was partially neutralized to pH 3.2 by adding NaOH, to form biphasic, micro-, and macroporous calcite-apatitic calcium phosphate (Ap-CaP) cement scaffolds of low strength. The resultant carbonated and Na-doped Ap-CaP phase in these scaffolds crystallogra . . .phically and spectroscopically resembled calcium hydroxyapatite. Upon mixing CaCO3 powders and the setting solution, carbon dioxide gas was in situ generated and formed the pores. Thus formed scaffolds contained pores over the range of 20-750 µm. Scaffolds were also converted to single-phase Ap-CaP, without altering their porosity, by soaking them in 0.5 M phosphate buffer solutions at 80°C for 36 h in glass bottles. Soerensen's buffer solution was also shown to be able to convert the calcite powders into single-phase Ap-CaP powders upon soaking at 60-80°C. This robust procedure of synthesizing Ap-CaP bioceramics is simple and economical. © 2007 Blackwell Publishing Ltd Daha fazlası Daha az

Hindistan’da ortaya çıkan birbirinden farklı ve hatta birbirine rakip milliyetçilik hareketleri koloni yönetiminden bağımsızlık kazanmak amacıyla işbirliği yaparlar. Ancak bağımsızlık sonrası dönemde milliyetçilik hareketleri arasında rekabet işbirliğinin önüne geçer. Sonuç bölünme, ayrılma, pek çok insanın hayatına mal olan nüfus mübadelesi, otoriter yönetim, dinsel-ulusal elitler arasında siyasal ikileşme, siyasi suikastların iktidar devirme aracı olarak kullanılması ve büyük bir demokrasinin yaşaması için gerekli uzlaşının ortadan kalkması olur. This article illustrates that different and competing nationalist movements were able . . . to join forces for the purpose of achieving self-rule in India in the presence of an external hegemonic force (Britain) controlling politics. However, once independence was accomplished, these competing movements have traded self-rule for self-interest. The result has been secession, threats of secession, mass population exchange at great cost to human life, authoritarian rule, political bifurcation along religio-national nomenclatures, violent transfers of power through assassination, and a general absence of compromise necessary for the successful rule of a large democracy Daha fazlası Daha az

Aim. Three incisional ventral abdominal wall hernias were repaired by placing a 20 30cm composite mesh via single incision of 2cm. Methods. All three cases had previous operations and presented with giant incisional defects clinically. The defects were repaired laparoscopically via single incision with the placement of a composite mesh of 20 30cm. Nonabsorbable sutures were needed to hang and fix the mesh only in the first case. Double-crown technique was used in all of the cases to secure the mesh to the anterior abdominal wall. Results. The mean operation time was 120 minutes. The patients were mobilized and led for oral intake at . . . the first postoperative day. No morbidity occurred. Conclusion. Abdominal incisional hernias can be repaired via single incision with a mesh application in experienced centers. © 2011 Umut Barbaros et al Daha fazlası Daha az

Background: Investigational approaches based on genome-wide association studies have proven useful in identifying genetic predictors for many diseases, including susceptibility to chronic hepatitis B and C. In these studies, the majority of genetic variants that have shown a positive association have been identified in genes involved in the immune response. In this study IFN-gamma, IFNGR-1, and IRF-1 genes were analyzed for their role in susceptibility to the development of chronic hepatitis B and chronic hepatitis C in a Turkish population. Methods: Polymorphic genes IRF-1 (-410, -388), IFNGR-1 (-56, -611), and IFN-gamma (+874) wer . . .e analyzed in a total of 400 individuals: 100 chronic hepatitis B patients, 100 hepatitis B carriers, 100 chronic hepatitis C patients, and 100 healthy controls. A single base primer extension assay was used. Correlations between genes and gender, viral load, and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) levels were also investigated. Results: The IRF-1 gene at positions -388 and -410 were observed to be candidate gene markers for susceptibility to the development of chronic hepatitis B and C (p < 0.05). IFN-gamma +874 and IFNGR-1 (-56 and -611) correlated with chronic hepatitis B but not chronic hepatitis C. Correlation of functional genotype with viral load and AST and ALT levels revealed an association of IFN-gamma +874 and IFNGR-1 -611 with chronic hepatitis C and IFN-gamma +874 with viral load and chronic hepatitis B (p < 0.05). Conclusions: Findings suggest that IFN-gamma (+874), IRF-1 (-410, -388), and IFNGR-1 (-56, -611) are candidate gene markers for determining patient susceptibility to the development of chronic hepatitis B and C.

Priapism is defined as having prolonged (more than 6 h), and usually painful penile erection that occurs without a sexual desire or arousal. Only a very few priapism cases caused by ziprasidone are reported in the literature. In this case report we aimed to present a prolonged penile erection due to use of ziprasidone. © 2013 Korean Neuropsychiatric Association.

Many hypertensive patients require ?2 drugs to achieve blood pressure targets. This study aims to review and analyze the clinical studies conducted with dual or triple combination of angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs), calcium channel blockers (CCBs), and diuretics. Medical literature between January 1990 and April 2012 was reviewed systematically and data from eligible studies were abstracted. Data were analyzed using random-effects models. Of the 224 studies screened, 7563 eligible patients from 11 studies were included. Triple combinations of ARBs (olmesartan or valsartan), CCBs (amlodipine), and diuretics (hydrochlorothiazi . . .de) at any dose provided more blood pressure reduction in office and 24-hour ambulatory measurements than any dual combination of these molecules ( Daha fazlası Daha az

A Gram-positive-staining, rod-shaped, facultatively oligotrophic bacterial strain, designated MB18(T), was isolated from a water sample collected from the River Mahananda at Siliguri (26 degrees 44' 23.20' N, 88 degrees 25' 22.89' a West-Bengal, India. On the basis of 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity, the closest relative of this strain was Brevibacterium epidermidis NCDO 2286(T) (96% similarity). The DNA G+C content of strain MB18(T) was 64.6 molo/o. Chemotaxonomic data [MK-8(H-2) as the major menaquinone, galactose as the sole cell-wall sugar, meso-diaminopimelic acid as the diagnostic cell-wall diamino acid, phosphatidylglycerol . . . and diphosphatidylglycerol as constituents of the polar lipids, anteiso-C-15:0, anteiso-C-17:0 and iso-C-15:0 as the major fatty acids] supported the affiliation of strain MB18T to the genus Brevibacterium. The results of DNA G +C content, 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis and biochemical and physiological analyses allowed genotypic and phenotypic differentiation of strain MB18(T) from its nearest neighbour B. epidermidis. The isolate therefore represents a novel species, for which the name Brevibacterium siliguriense sp. nov. is proposed; the type strain is MB18(T) (=DSM 23676(T)=LMG 25772(T)) Daha fazlası Daha az

Although European Union already plays a significant role in shaping international society, it may still influence international society more effectively. In this study, this claim will be demonstrated with reference to the success of European countries in transforming the concept of sovereignty and to three other characteristics of the union which have emerged in the process of integration: (1) implicit formation, (2) passive defense, and (3) will-power and concert. Moreover, it will be argued that arrangements, which remove structural inconsistencies of the union, and policies, which facilitate inclusion of Turkey to the union, wil . . .l play a significant role in enhancing the European Union's capacity to mould the international society. As a result, in spite of its inability to affect international order, this paper will describe the Union's potential to influence international society and discuss the strategies to increase this potential Daha fazlası Daha az
