K?ksal DEVEC?,Hu?lya DEVEC?,Korhan Bar?? BAYRAM,Hikmet KO?Y???T
Türkiye Fiziksel Tip ve Rehabilitasyon Dergisi , 2012,
Abstract: Objective: Although there is an opinion that anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide antibody (anti-CCP) is a reliable diagnostic and prognostic indicator in rheumatoid arthritis (RA), its association with disease activity and severity is uncertain. This study has been planned to determine the relationship between anti-CCP antibody levels and the disease activity in patients with RA. Materials and Methods: A total of 48 patients, who have been diagnosed with RA, were included in the study. After physical examination, all patients were evaluated with clinical and laboratory parameters. The clinical symptoms were assessed using visual analog scale (VAS), disease activity score (DAS-28) and Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ). Rheumatoid factor (RF), erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), C-reactive protein (CRP), thrombocyte, leukocyte, hemoglobin and anti-CCP levels were investigated. Results: The anti-CCP results were positive in 33 patients (68.7%) and negative in 15 patients (31.3%). Anti-CCP was positive in 30.4% of RF-negative patients. A significant difference was observed in average RF levels when the anti-CCP positive and negative patients were compared, however, there was no significance between other parameters. In logistic regression analysis of multiple parameters, higher DAS-28 scores and RF positivity were associated with 5.95 and 5.4 times greater risk of being anti-CCP positive, respectively. Conclusion: Anti-CCP can be used in the diagnosis of patients with seronegative RA and also may be useful for reflecting disease activity. Turk J Phys Med Re-hab 2012;58:267-71.

Türkiye Fiziksel Tip ve Rehabilitasyon Dergisi , 2012,
Abstract: Objective: The aim of this study was to compare the effectiveness of glenohumeral (GH) joint injection and suprascapular nerve block (SNB) in patients with hemiplegic shoulder pain.Materials and Methods: Thirty-six patients with shoulder pain lasting for at least 3 months were randomized into two groups in which SNB was applied in the first and GH joint steroid injection in the second group. All patients were evaluated before treatment, after 30 minutes, second week and third month after the treatment. Pain at rest, with motion and nocturnal pain were determined by the visual analogue scale. Shoulder joint range of motion was recorded for all patients. Disability status was assessed using the Functional Independence Measure (FIM). Results: There was a significant decrease in VAS scores for pain at rest, night and activity immediately after, at the second week and at the third month after the treatment in both groups. Change scores were similar in both groups. Conclusion: Although, both GH joint injection and SNB reduced pain and improved functional status at upto 3 months, there was no superiority of the one over the other.

Thus, in this article, we aimed to present a 55-year-old male patient with coexisting Beh et’s disease and ankylosing spondylitis who had HLA-B5 positivity, HLA-B27 negativity, and oral and genital lesions.
Relationship between the Level of Helicobacter pylori and Number of Platelets in Non-ITP Patients Who Underwent Gastroscopy  [PDF]
Osman Mavis, Korhan Kapucu
Open Journal of Gastroenterology (OJGas) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojgas.2017.75018
Abstract: Purpose: To investigate both the presence of H. pylori in non-ITP patients who had not undergone H. pylori eradication, and also its relationship (if any) with the number of platelets. Methods: This retrospective study was performed with a total of 220 cases aged between 18 and 65 years who had undergone gastroscopy. H. pylori levels of the participants were investigated, and concurrently their hemograms were analyzed, and their platelet counts were performed. At the same time, cases in the H. pylori positive arm were compared with sub-groups categorized based on their degree of positivity. Results: A statistically significant difference was not detected between platelet counts of the cases based on their H. pylori levels (p = 0.583). A statistically significant difference was detected between H. pylori levels, and distribution of histopathological diagnosis of the cases (p = 0.001; p < 0.01). Conclusion: Our study results revealed that in cases where any primary or secondary factor which might affect platelets is absent, the presence of H. pylori has not any effect on platelet counts.

Arif Sari, Pelin Bayram
Int'l J. of Communications, Network and System Sciences (IJCNS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ijcns.2015.813052
Abstract: The Mobile Commerce (m-commerce) becomes very powerful tool in the competitive business markets. Companies started to use this technology to attract their customers and catch their attention. Usage of Mobile commerce applications spreaded around different countries and became very popular. Different communication protocols and security techniques are designed for business use of m-commerce. Mobile Commerce, likewise the e-commerce brought significant difference in the market. People start to use this technology by feeling the freedom of having transactions at anywhere and anytime. However, consumers face lot of difficulties while using this technology which is consumer-based or service provider based. This research exposes the impact of determinants that influences mobile commerce application users’ attitudes by classifying and investigating the internal and external variables in a case study of Cyprus Research Centre.
Necrotizing fasciitis: strategies for diagnosis and management
Korhan Taviloglu, Hakan Yanar
World Journal of Emergency Surgery , 2007, DOI: 10.1186/1749-7922-2-19
Abstract: Necrotising fasciitis (NF) is a rare soft tissue infection, primarily involving the superficial fascia and resulting in extensive undermining of the surrounding tissues. If untreated, it is invariably fatal, and thus a high index of suspicion for the diagnosis is required [1]. Mortality remains still high in NF despite use of modern powerful antimicrobial drug regimens and advances in the care of the critically ill patients. Overall mortality ranges from 25 percent to 73 percent in the published literature [2-12]. The disease's manifestation can range from a fulminant presentation to a subtle and insidious development [13].In 1871, a Confederate army surgeon named Joseph Jones first described the disease during the Civil War. By 1918, the cause of the disease was identified as a bacterial infection. It was named "necrotizing fasciitis" in 1952, from necrosis, which means death of a portion of tissue, and fascia, which refers to the fibrous tissues that enclose and connect the muscles. Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, cases of NF occurred only sporadically and usually remained restricted to military hospitals during wartime, although some civilian population outbreaks have also occurred. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that, worldwide, rates of NF increased from the mid-1980s to early 1990s. Increases in the rate and severity of NF are associated with increases in the prevalence of toxin-producing strains of S. pyogenes (M-1 and M-3 serotypes). In 1999, approximately 600 cases of NF were reported in the United States, according to the CDC [14].The diagnosis of primary or idiopathic NF may be challenging because it occurs in the absence of a known causative factor or portal of entry for bacteria [11,15]. In most cases, NF occurs as a result of a known etiology, and classified as secondary NF. Bacterial entry occurs as a result of some precipitating events such as laceration, cut, abrasion, contusion, burn, bite, subcutaneous injectio
Banking and Technology: Information Flow Between the Human and the Machine Through Automated Teller Machines
Mete Feridun,Orhan Korhan
Information Technology Journal , 2005,
Abstract: During their encounter with the Automated Teller Machines (ATMs), humans face up various choices and options, which leads them to make a number of decisions. During this process, accuracy, integrity and speed are the critical elements. The objective of this study was to design a simple human machine system, which would both incorporate these elements and enable humans to use their full capacities while not overdemanding or overloading. The design eliminates the information loss (equivocation) and gain (noise) and augments the process in terms of accuracy, integrity and speed.
Turkish and Argentine Financial Crises: A Univariate Event Study Analysis
Mete Feridun,Orhan Korhan
Journal of Applied Sciences , 2005,
Abstract: This study analyzes the financial crises in Argentina and Turkey in order to find out whether a set of six major macroeconomic indicators account for these crises or not. Evidence suggests that in Turkey, an increase in domestic credit is associated with the 1992, 1994 and 2001 financial crises, whereas an increase in CPI is associated with all crisis episodes. Similarly, a decrease in exchange rate is associated with all crises. A fall in the market index is associated with financial crises in 1991, 1992 and 1994. An increase in M1 is associated only with the crisis in 1992 and a fall in the volume of exports relative to volume of imports is associated with the crisis in 1994. In Argentina, an increase in neither CPI nor domestic credit is associated with any of the financial crises. A decrease in exchange rate is associated with all crises, whereas a fall in the market index is associated with financial crises in 1991 and 2000. An increase in M1, on the other hand, is associated with the crises in 1993, 2000 and 2001.
Reliability and Validity of the Turkish Version of Brandes, Dharwadkar, and Dean’s (1999) Organizational Cynicism Scale: The Case of Organized Industrial Zone, Kayseri
Korhan Karacaoglu,Fatma Ince
Business and Economics Research Journal , 2012,
Abstract: The aim of this research is to investigate the validity and reliability of Turkish version of Organizational Cynicism Scale developed by Brandes et al. (1999). The research was conducted on 300 workers employed in the manufacturing entreprises of Kayseri Organized Industrial Zone. The psychometric properties of the scale were examined by cronbach alpha and item-total corelations for the reliability, and exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses for the validity. As a result of the factor analysis, three factors emerged as in the original form of the scale: affect, cognition, and behavior. The Cronbach’s alpha for the oganizational cynicism scale was 0,91, and affect, cognition and behavior dimensions revealed the coefficients of 0,94, 0,87, and 0,82 respectively. The psycometric properties of the Turkish version of Organizational Cynicism Scale showed that the scale has a satisfactory level of reliability and validity for the Turkish employee sample.

Bar?? Kendirli
Applied Mathematics (AM) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/am.2015.68133
Abstract: Recently, Williams [1] and then Yao, Xia and Jin [2] discovered explicit formulas for the coefficients of the Fourier series expansions of a class of eta quotients. Williams expressed all coefficients of 126 eta quotients in terms of \"\" and \"\" and Yao, Xia and Jin, following the method of proof of Williams, expressed only even coefficients of 104 eta quotients in terms of \"\" and \"\" . Here, by using the method of proof of Williams, we will express the even Fourier coefficients of 360 eta quotients i.e., the Fourier coefficients of the sum, f(q) + f(?q), of 360 eta quotients in terms of \"\" and \"\".
