The Etiologic and Prognostic Importance of High Leukocyte and Neutrophil Counts in Acute Ischemic Stroke
Journal of Neurological Sciences , 2010,
Abstract: Objectives: Inflammatory mechanisms play an important role in the pathogenesis of cerebral ischemia and in the risk of stroke. In several studies, elevated leukocyte count has been associated with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events. The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between the leukocyte and neutrophil counts and stroke severity, short term prognosis and stroke subtypes of the patients with acute ischemic stroke.Materials/Methods: Leukocyte and neutrophil counts were measured in 166 consecutive acute ischemic stroke patients in the first 24 hour of admission. Clinical findings, stroke risk factors and brain imagings were evaluated. According to their etiology, patients were classified by using the TOAST criteria. Stroke severity was assessed by the modified Rankin Scale(mRS) on admission and discharge, National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) was used on admission.Results: While 51(%30.72) patients had leukocyte ≥10000/μl and 115(%69.28) patients had leukocyte <10000/ μl, 70(%42.17) patients had neutrophil ≥6100/μl and 96(%57.83) patients had neutrophil<6100/μl. leukocyte and neutrophil counts were significantly higher in severe stroke (p<0.001) hence short term prognosis was significantly poor in these patients. (p<0.001) We found a strong correlation between large vessel disease and high leukocyte count (p<0.05) and also between small vessel disease and normal leukocyte count. (p<0.05) Results were similar for neutrophil levels of patients according to stroke subtypes.Conclus on: According to our study; high leukocyte and neutrophil levels on admission correlate with large vessel disease and therefore could be a predictor of stroke severity and unfavourable outcome.
Managing dental caries in children in Turkey - a discussion paper
Asli Topaloglu-Ak, Ece Eden, Jo E Frencken
BMC Oral Health , 2009, DOI: 10.1186/1472-6831-9-32
Abstract: A virtual absence of palliative, preventive and restorative care characterises juvenile oral healthcare in Turkey. Consequently, carious cavities remain untreated, which may lead to pain, discomfort and functional limitation and, further, may impact negatively upon general health and cognitive development. As a first step to controlling dental caries, a national health programme including promotional, preventive and minimal intervention approaches for managing dental caries is proposed. The pros and cons of community-oriented caries-preventive measures are discussed. Daily tooth brushing with fluoridated toothpaste at home, in mother- and child-care centres, kindergartens, and schools is highlighted.The dental profession, government, university officials and other stakeholders need to meet and determine how best the oral health of children in Turkey can be improved. The present proposed plan is considered a starting point.Worldwide, the contribution of dental caries to the burden of oral diseases is about 10 times higher than that of periodontal disease, the other common oral condition [1]. Owing to its globally high prevalence, dental caries in children has been described as a 'pandemic' disease characterised by a high percentage of untreated carious cavities causing pain, discomfort and functional limitations [2]. Untreated carious cavities, furthermore, have a significant impact on the general health of children and on the social and economic wellbeing of communities [3] and are more common in developing, than in developed countries [4]. In the latter, the low prevalence of dental caries is predominantly due to children's intensive use of promoted preventive oral health measures, supported by appropriate curative care provided by an umbrella of accessible clinics and affordable health insurance. In contrast, most developing countries and those in transition lack the resources and infra-structure required to provide children with the necessary care and attention.T

Topaloglu-Ak, Asli;Eden, Ece;Frencken, Jo E.;
Journal of Applied Oral Science , 2007, DOI: 10.1590/S1678-77572007000300015
Abstract: objectives: the aim of the investigation was to test the differences in the perceived level of dental anxiety among children treated restoratively using the atraumatic restorative treatment (art) approach, the traditional restorative (tra) approach and art aided with a chemomechanical caries removal gel (art plus). methods: the study subjects were 6-7-year-old children. tra was compared to art in a clinical setting after children had seen a dentist twice (group a), art was compared to 'art plus' in a clinical setting after children had seen a dentist once (group b) and art was applied outside the clinic on school premises (group c). the treatments were carried out in class ii cavitated dentine lesion in primary molars. dental anxiety was measured using the venham picture test (vpt). three-way analysis of variances and interaction was applied to test for treatment approach, gender and operator effects on the mean vpt scores. results: there was no statistically significant difference (p=0.80) observed between the mean vpt scores for the traditional approach and those for the art approach and between art with and without a chemomechanical caries removal gel (p=0.07). children in group a had lower mean vpt scores than children in group b (p=0.02) and group c (p<0.00001) when treated using the art approach by the same two operators. conclusions: the level of dental anxiety was low. there was no difference in level of dental anxiety observed in children treated with art in comparison to the traditional restorative approach, and between children treated with art with and without a chemomechanical caries removal gel. the treatment environment and prepatory visits may be factors determining the level of dental anxiety in children treated through the art approach only.
Renal Amyloidosis Following Chronic Osteomyelitis in a Patient with Congenital Insensitivity to Pain and Anhidrosis  [PDF]
Sevgi Yavuz, Aydin Ece
Open Journal of Pediatrics (OJPed) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojped.2014.43032
Abstract: Congenital insensitivity to pain and anhidrosis (CIPA) is a rare form of hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy. It is characterized by impaired perception of pain and temperature, anhidrosis and intellectual disability. Self mutilating behaviors lead to accidental injuries. The limb lesions are often infected and frequently progress to chronic osteomyelitis. In pediatrics, amyloidosis usually occurs secondary to chronic inflammatory diseases. The coexistence of amyloidosis and CIPA has not previously been reported in literature. A CIPA case complicated with nephrotic syndrome and renal amyloidosis following chronic osteomyelitis is presented here. This report emphasizes the importance of close follow-up of patients by urine analysis for the risk of developing amyloidosis particularly in the presence of chronic infections.
Parental Conditional Regard, Subjective Well-Being and Self-Esteem: The Mediating Role of Perfectionism  [PDF]
Ece Mendi, Jale Eldeleklio?lu
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2016.710130
Abstract: The present study investigated the relationship between parental conditional regard, perfectionism, subjective well-being and self-esteem, and the role of perfectionism as a mediator in the relationship between parental conditional regard and both subjective well-being and self-esteem. Using a convenience sampling, 500 Turkish university students (M age = 20.83 years old, SD age = 2.05) completed questionnaires. The results showed positive links between parental conditional regard and perfectionism, negative links between parental conditional regard and both subjective well-being and self-esteem and negative links between perfectionism and both subjective well-being and self-esteem. While perfectionism was a partial mediator between parental conditional regard and self-esteem, perfectionism was not a mediator between parental conditional regard and subjective well-being.

PR 2.0 and interaction of Turkish Brands in Terms of Brand Awareness
AJIT-e : Online Academic Journal of Information Technology , 2012, DOI: 10.5824/1309‐1581.2012.4.005.x
Abstract: Today, under the affect of market conditions, companies prefer social media channel with the aim of reaching their target population, interacting with their customers directly and expressing their brands more powerfully in the market. Companies are trying to perform new strategies for creating close relationships between brand and customers, while the differentiation attempts of the companies. Nowadays, the Internet phenomenon is one of the most important factors in this regard. People spend most of their times at the computer and internet networks. In the 1990s, with the spread of internet and mobile phones, public relations activities moved to electronic and digital media of mass communication as a one-way by using e-mail, SMS and fax machine tools (Jalali, 2009:32). In the 2000s, by the development in web area, with the help of 2.0 patches, people can also edit the pages instead of just reading the written pages through the web pages. In today's competitive environment and the developments that followed the progress of technology companies and companies with a progressive web influenced by these developments and the opportunities created by social media, they introduce their products and services and increase customer satisfaction for better uses. PR activities which use Web 2.0 and technological developments in social media environment are called PR 2.0 (Jalali, 2009:45). Throughout the research, PR 2.0 activities within the scope of the contribution of brand awareness through social media, especially in comparison with traditional PR will be discussed. Brands will be examined regarding the brands which are actively using the social media in terms of the public relations and brand awareness. Brands can be listed in four different business sectors such as; Mavi Jeans, Anadolu Efes Pilsen, Garanti Bankas and ETI.
A Forgotten Migration and Citizenship Experience: First Generation Immigrant Women and The Netherlands Union of Women from Turkey
Ece ?ztan
Fe Dergi : Feminist Ele?tiri , 2010,
Abstract: Despite acknowledging the feminization of immigration there are a few studies giving immigrant and ethnic minority women greater visibility within receiving country context and using gender as an analytic concept in migration researches. Particularly, there is a tendency that women’s migration has still been acknowledged as “dependant” or “secondary” migratory movement in guest worker regimes’ traditional “family reunion” schemas and issues such as immigrant women’s participation in labour markets, politics and citizenship have been ignored. In this article, I aim to examine immigrant women’s role especially in community services and citizenship struggles focusing on Hollanda Türkiyeli Kad nlar Birli i (The Netherlands Union of Women from Turkey) founded in 1974 and participant women’s experiences. This study is based on a larger fieldwork conducted in 2007-2008 in the Netherlands including in-depth interviews with women who were previously active in HTKB and the data review from HTKB archives. In the introduction chapter, I review gender and migration relationship in literature. In the second chapter, I focus on first generations Turkish immigrant women’s experiences in labour market and community organization in Dutch context and following chapter specifically their experiences in HTKB. Finally, from the vantage point of immigrant women’s experiences, the article concludes with critics on current political frameworks in the Netherlands based on a neoliberal citizenship perspective that construct immigrant women as a “problem category”

MS Asli
African Journal of Biotechnology , 2010,
Abstract: Siahe sardasht grape is famous variety of grape in Iran that is used for red grape juice concentrate. The pomace of this grape (as byproduct of fruit juice concentrate industry) is a favorable medium for growth of all type of yeasts. The ethanol production using Saccharomyces cerevesiae SC1 extracted from fermented siahe sardasht grape pomace was studied in batch fermentation. The best ethanol production rates are observed at pH 4.5, temperature 32°C and sugar concentration equal to 100 g/L. According to the results, KH2PO4 is a better phosphorous source in comparison with K2HPO4, and (NH4)2SO4 is the best nitrogen source.
