Muyesser Okumus, Hulya Parpucu, Seher Kocaoglu, Esma Ceceli, Murat Duranay, P?nar Borman
Open Journal of Rheumatology and Autoimmune Diseases (OJRA) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojra.2012.24017
Abstract: ,b>Objective: The aim of this study was to determine the frequency of fibromyalgia (FM) in patients on Peritoneal Dialysis (PD) and to investigate its impact on the quality of life of that population. Methods: A hundred and twenty four patients with end stage renal disease who had undergone PD, and a control group of 54 age and sex-matched healthy volunteers were included to the study. Demographic characteristics including age, sex, disease and dialysis duration were recorded. Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire (FIQ) and Nottingham Health Profile (NHP) were also measured. Results: The mean age of the patients (68 female, 56 male) and control subjects (36 female, 18 male) were 43.5 ± 13.4 and 41.2 ± 9.2 years respectively. The prevalence of FM in the PD patients and controls were determined as 9.7% (12 patients) and 11.1% (6 controls) respectively and were found to be similar (p = 0.983). The mean score of sub- groups of NHP except pain and emotion subgroups, were significantly higher in PD patients than in the control group. The mean FIQ levels, the scores of all the subgroups of NHP except the social subgroup were significantly higher in PD patients with FM than in those without FM. Conclusion: In conclusion although the prevalence of FM appears to be similar in PD patients and control subjects, the functional disability is common and quality of life is worse in PD patients with FM than in patients without FM. Detection and treatment of FM may lead to improvement in the quality of life of PD patients with this syndrome.
Healthy Environments or High Prices? Residents’ Perspective to the Urban Regeneration Projects in Atasehir, Istanbul  [PDF]
Deniz Erdem Okumus, Engin E. Eyuboglu
Current Urban Studies (CUS) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/cus.2017.54025
Regeneration movement is an irreplaceable necessity for Istanbul not only to prevent the destructions of earthquake and improve physical quality, but also to enhance the quality of life, reduce social vulnerability and maintain both social and physical sustainability. In Turkey, the term of urban regeneration has had different descriptions according to various agencies and stakeholders since 1980s. While academicians evaluate the regeneration projects as planning tools for having sustainable and high quality urban environments from social, ecological and economic approaches, investors for instance justify that they need more development rights and need to make more money to build good condition buildings for having that kind of neighborhoods. Residents, however, are the most important stakeholders to decide the future of the neighborhood. This research aims to evaluate what the residents’ satisfaction level, perceptions and expectations are about the conditions and the possible urban regeneration movements in the neighborhood. 5 main headings are specified as main indicators for the research and conducted by surveys and interviews with current residents in the case of Atasehir, Barbaros Neighborhood which is a new developing and attractive area for real estate investments and urban regeneration projects in Istanbul. At the end of this research, it is stated that residents are very aware of the content of urban regeneration at practice level, and they believe in their neighborhood needs to regenerate for several reasons. They, however, discredit the term about having environment which is healthy and has high quality of life. They are just interested in the economic returns of the projects, and they expect to be built high level income housing to sell the prices out of the market.
Genetic Variation at Karayaka Sheep Herds Based on Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA Markers
Ahmet Okumus,Levent Mercan
Biotechnology , 2007,
Abstract: Turkish Karayaka sheep breed that is one of the important native breed at Black Sea Region in Turkey was genotyped for 13 RAPD primers. Genotypes of 100 were collected from five different herds (BA, BF, LA, LD and KP herds) localized in the Samsun territory. The genetic similarity was obtained on the dendrograms individuals and herd. Within herds, individuals showed a similarity index between 0.857 to 0.420. The similarity index between populations ranged from 0.520 to 0.710. The binary results also were utilised by principal component analysis for comparison of herds and individuals. The genetic relationship of animals shows a difference among herds in terms of number of RAPD bands. These results show that some herds are effected possibly from other sheep breeds or reared purely such as KP.
Chiasma Frequency and Chromosome Pairing at Tobacco Genotypes (Nicotiana tabacum) in the Middle Black Sea Region
Ahmet Okumus,A. Gulumser
Journal of Biological Sciences , 2001,
Abstract: The study covers the relationship between tobacco genotypes in terms of chromosome homology by pairing configurations and chiasma frequency growing at different areas of the middle black sea region. For this purpose, three genotypes (Samsun, Bafra and Merzifon) and their crosses were studied by acetocarmine stain technique at the stage of metaphase I of meiosis. Consequently, parents and their hybrids showed that bivalent type of chromosome pairing (0.6-1.1 rod type and 22.0-23.4 ring type) and chiasma frequency between 46.90-47.40 %. This type of pairing is considered to be from the close similarity of the chromosomes of genotypes
Genetic Similarity by RAPD Between Pure Lines of Chickens
A. Okumus,M. Kaya
Journal of Biological Sciences , 2005,
Abstract: Twelve primers were used to characterize the genetic similarity among ten chickens which named RIR I, RIR II, Barred I, Barred II, Colombian Rock, Line-54, Blue Line, Maroon Line, Black Line and Brown Line provided by Ankara Poultry Research Institute-Turkey. The objective of this study were to determine PCR-based genetic similarity between lines. Totally, 35 bands were scored for the dendogram prepared on the bases of a similarity matrix using the UPGMA algorithma. The highest and lowest genetic similarities were found to be 0.3773 between Bar I and Maroon and 0.0899 between Col and Bar II, respectively.
Instrumentation of Thermography and its Applications in Horses
Latif Emrah Yanmaz,Zafer Okumus,Elif Dogan
Journal of Animal and Veterinary Advances , 2012,
Abstract: Thermography is the noninvasive technique that measures emitted heat and displays this temperature as a picture. Inflammation can be determined by using a medical thermogram. The techniques involve contacting and noncontacting device; noncontacting thermography is very accurate for detecting infrared radiation. Thermography is a useful imaging tool to evaluate diagnosis of certain lameness conditions in the horse and also to allow appropriate treatment that can be applied before some clinical signs occur. This review is intended to present instrumentation and applications of thermography in equine medicine.

Journal of Animal and Veterinary Advances , 2012, DOI: 10.3923/javaa.2011.2357.2362
Abstract: Timing and density of spat settlement on artificial collectors Polypropylene (PP) and hemp with growth and culture potential of Mediterranean mussel, Mytilus galloprovincialis were studied at two sites (Trabzon-Sana and Rize) in the Southeastern Black sea coast. The growth of the mussels and environmental parameters were measured monthly from May 2003 to April 2004. Two different spat collectors (PP and hemp) hung on long-line mussel systems in April 2003. First observation of spat settlement at each sites was started in May. Mean value of spat settlement was determined as 7659±1495 mussels/m in Sana and 5774±1438 mussels/m in Rize. There was no significant difference found between spat collector ropes. Mean value of spat length was determined as 0.07±0.003 mm in Sana, 0.09±0.004 mm in Rize. At the end of the study, shell length of mussels reached 40.39±1.184 mm in Sana and 46.20±0.547 mm in Rize. In conclusion for mussel culture enough seed can be collected but spats must be stripped in 1 or 2 months after settlement and that mussels would be market size in 1+ years.

Latif Emrah Yanmaz,Zafer Okumus,Elif Dogan
Veterinary Research , 2012,
Abstract: In recent years, laparoscopy has gained a great acceptance in veterinary medicine. Laparoscopic surgery is minimally invasive and traumatic in animals. For laparoscopy, the animal rapidly turns its normal physical condition. Laparoscopy allows safe biopsy in several organs such as kidney, liver, pancreas and intestine. It also assists some surgical procedures such as cryptorchidectomy, abomasopexy, colopexy, castration and adhesiolysis. To perform laparoscopy, the surgeon should know abdominal topography. Laparoscopy requires expensive instruments that can also be used to other endoscopic procedures. This study with application of laparoscopy in veterinary surgery with advantages and disadvantages.

Veterinary Research , 2012,
Abstract: Periodontal disease is an inflammation of periodontal tissues that include gingiva, cementum, alveolar bone and periodontal ligament. They occur mostly in dogs and cats mainly due to a lack of oral hygiene. Therefore, care must be taken to minimize occurrence of these problems. Since periodontal diseases can occur as a complex in 4 stages, clinical symptoms should be carefully evaluated for effective treatment. This review study provides extensive information on etiology, epidemiology, treatment and prognosis of periodontal diseases in pet animals.
