Abstract: In this research, it is aimed to determine the determinants of service quality perceived by fitness center members. Scanning model from quantitative research methods was used in the research. The study group consisted of 301 women and 390 men in total 691 members who participated the research voluntarily and were selected through an easily accessible sample. The "Sport-Fitness Centers Perceived Service Quality Scale (SFC-PSQS)" developed by U?an (2007) was used in the study. In the analysis of the data, independent t-test, correlation analysis and logistic regression tests were applied. According to obtained findings, significant and moderate relationships were determined between service quality sub-dimensions in positive direction whereas Independent T test results showed that service quality perceptions of participants who evaluated the program as expensive were found to be significantly lower in all sub-dimensions. Considering the logistic regression results, it was determined that variable of "physical environment quality" from perceived service quality sub-dimensions had an effect on the level of program fees of the members. It seems that 1 unit increase in physical environment quality variable caused 6.1% decrease in "program fee prediction" related to odds value. It can be stated that 11% of the total variance of program fee levels predicts perceived service quality. As a result, it is considered that only one factor cannot be effective in ensuring the continuity of sport-fitness center customers and the sustainability of the business. This is because factors such as customer expectations, equipment, experience of fitness center, customer loyalty, physical appearance that may affect individual consumer satisfaction are important factors.

Abstract: Optic disc edema is the end result of many pathological processes, some relatively benign, some with visual and neurological consequences. Charts belonging to adults referred with the finding of unilateral disc edema during the last 5 years were reviewed in the neuroophthalmology department of a tertiary eye care center in Ankara, Turkey. Of 77 patients who were retrospectively evaluated; 38 had nonarteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION), 13 had papillitis and 10 had disc edema secondary to orbital mass lesions. Unilateral optic disc edema was associated with visual loss in 66 (85,7 %) and with other complaints (proptosis, diplopia, transient visual obscurations) in 11(14,3 %) patients. Then the patients were divided into three groups according to their etiology such as ischemic (Group 1: 41 patients), compressive (Group 2: 18 patients) and inflammatory (Group 3: 18 patients). The groups were statistically compared in terms of demographic and clinical characteristics. All groups were similar in terms of gender, optic disc appearance and duration of symptoms. There were more aged persons with systemic diseases such as diabetes mellitus and hypertension in Group 1 (ischemic) with significantly more painless visual loss, and more optic disc hemorrhages. Group 2 (compressive) had less severe central vision loss and color vision loss; and Group 3 (inflammatory) consisted of younger individuals with mostly painful visual loss.

Abstract: Objectives: To determine the clinical and laboratory predictors of fatality among patients with Hantavirus infection.Materials and methods: A retrospective study was conducted on the patients with Hantavirus infection between April 2009and October 2011 at the Black Sea and the Mediterranean regions in Turkey. Demographic, clinical and laboratory findings offatal cases and non-fatal cases at the admission were compared.Results: Twenty-two patients with confirmed Hantavirus infection were evaluated. Five patients died (22.7%). The cause ofdeath was massive bleeding. The rate of hemorrhage was significantly higher in the fatal cases than non-fatal cases (p<0.001).Massive gastrointestinal hemorrhage was seen in four of these patients, cerebral hemorrhage in two and both gastrointestinaland pulmonary hemorrhage in one. Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) was present in four of the fatal cases and aremarkable cause of the bleeding (p=0.02). White blood cell count (WBC) (p=0.002), creatine phosphokinase (CPK) (p=0.011),blood-urea-nitrogen (BUN) (p=0.014), C reactive protein (CRP) (p=0.005) and D-dimer levels (p=0.001), prothrombin time (PT)(p=0.023), activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) (p=0.001) and international normalized ratio (INR) (p=0.021) were significantlyhigher, and platelet counts (p=0.038) significantly lower in the fatal cases. Optimum diagnostic cut-off points for specificlaboratory parameters which may be predictive of fatality were; WBC=16,000 μL-1, PLT=30000 μL-1, PT=19.7 s, aPTT=36s, INR=1.2, D-dimer=9.3 μg/mL, CPK=600 U/L, BUN=47 mg/dL and CRP=13.4 mg/dL.Conclusions: Physicians should be aware of the high fatality risk for patients with Hantavirus infection with hemorrhage, elevatedWBC, CPK, BUN, CRP, PT, aPTT, INR and D-dimer and reduced platelet counts.

Abstract: The analysis of semiology has been previously used in only linguistic analysis but in time it was started to be used to analyse in different ares such as cinema, music, advertising poster etc. In this article, Algirdas Julien Greimas’s the actantial model and narrative curriculum will be discussed who was inspired by narrative science of Vladimir Propp in respect to the structuralism and making up his own analysis method. Considering these facts, William Shakespeare’s play ‘Hamlet’ adaptation is going to be analyzed according to A.J. Greimas’s actantial model.

Abstract: The traditional use of in earthen material in Turkey and especially Central Anatolia is known to have originated from the primary ages of settled civilization period. The building techniques that were used in Central Anatolia in B.C. 5000s and that can be seen in the examples that have survived today resemble one another. We can tell that this is an indication that the architecture defined as vernacular is not pure. The forms have affected each other and similar techniques have been used. Within the scope of this research, vernacular examples of houses made of “earthen material” in Anatolia have been examined and application methods that differ from region to region and their differences have been explained. Türkiye’de zellikle Orta Anadolu’ya bakt m zda kerpi gelene inin, yerle im düzenine ge ilen ilk a lara kadar gitti i bilinmektedir.

Abstract: Objective: Endothelial dysfunction, which is associated with decreased nitric oxide (NO) and hyperhomocysteinemia, is an essential component of preeclampsia Aim of our study was to investigate nitric oxide levels and homocysteine levels in preeclamptic women and to study the relationship between homocysteine and NO.Material and Method: Thirty preeclamptic and thirty healthy pregnant women above 30 gestational weeks were included to study. Venous blood samples were collected from all women before administration of any drug. Homocysteine and two stable oxidation products of NO, nitrate and nitrite were analyzed in healthy pregnant women, mild preeclamptic, severe preeclamptic and eclamptic women.Results: Demographical and obstetrical characteristics of patients were similar, except blood pressure measurements. Mean of homocysteine values were significantly higher in preeclamptic women (9.0±3.4 μmol/l) than healthy controls (5.3±1.3 μmol/l). Homocysteine levels were found to be increased as the severity of preeclampsia increased; with highest level in eclamptic patients (14.0±1.8 μmol/l, p<0.001). Cut-off values with good sensitivity and specificity was reproduced by ROC analysis. There was no significant difference in serum nitrite and nitrate levels. No association between hyperhomocysteinemia and NO was found.Conclusions: Preeclampsia and severity of this pregnancy associated catastrophic disease is well-correlated with level of serum homocysteine. However, NO levels are not altered. Pathophsiology of hyperhomocysteinemia in preeclampsia probably does not involve impinging upon NO.

Abstract: Objective: We investigated the levels of anxiety, depression and quality of life of non small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients receiving chemotherapy. Material and Method: Forty three patients with NSCLC cancer receiving chemotherapy were included in this study. The series of forms including the questions regarding the demographic characteristics of the patients, Turkish version of the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), the Turkish version of the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) and EORTC- QLQ-C30 (version 3) were completed during face-to-face interviews by trained interviewers to determine the psychological status and quality of life of the patients.Results: The mean Beck depression scores were 18±10.1 (range 0-40) and the mean STAI scores were 46.2±6.6 (range 33-60). 46.5% of the patients (20 patients) (Beck Depression scores ≥17 points) were determined as depressive. The STAI and EORTC-QLQ C30 symptom scales scores (excluding the dyspnea, diarrhea, constipation, appetite loss and financial problems) of the depressive patients (BDI≥17) were significantly higher than that of the non depressive patients (BDI<17). On the other hand, the EORTC-QLQ C30 function scales (physical, role, cognitive, emotional and social function scales) and global quality of life scores of the depressive patients (BDI≥17) were significantly lower than that of the non depressive patients (BDI<17). Conclusion: In our study, anxiety and depression levels were high in Turkish NSCLC cancer patients. We found that depression was strongly associated with the poor quality of life in Turkish NSCLC cancer patients.

Abstract: MMPs play a significant role in the progression of different types of human tumors as well as malignant melanomas. MMP-2, which is also known as 72-kD type IV collagenase is a member of MMPs. The aim of this immunohistochemical study is to evaluate the role of MMP-2 expression in common melanocytic nevi, dysplastic nevi and primary cutaneous malignant melanomas.Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded materials from 21 common melanocytic nevi (CMN), 42 dysplastic nevi (DN) and 18 primary cutaneous malignant melanomas (MM) were examined. Standard streptavidin-biotin immunoperoxidase method was used for immunostaining with MMP- 2 antibody. Both tumoral and stromal cytoplasmic MMP- 2 expressions in melanocytic lesions were scored semiquantitatively.MMP-2 immunoreactivity was not observed in stromal and/or melanocytic cells in either common melanocytic or dysplastic nevi. Eleven of 18 malignant melanomas expressed MMP-2. Five cases showed positive cytoplasmic staining only in stromal cells, and six cases in both stromal and melanocytic cells. MMP-2 was more commonly expressed at the tumor-stroma interface where significant amount of plasma cells and lymphocytes were observed.MMP-2 expression does not appear to be related to the pathobiology of benign melanocytic lesions such as common melanocytic nevi and dysplastic nevi. On the other hand, MMP-2 expression by the cells in the tumor stroma, particularly by endothelial cells and fibroblasts, may play a significant role in melanoma pathobiology.
