Prevalence of human papilloma virus and human herpes virus types 1-7 in human nasal polyposis
This study aimed to investigate the prevalence of human papilloma virus (HPV), herpes simplex virus-1/-2 (HSV-1/-2), varicella-zoster virus (VZV), Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), cytomegalovirus (CMV), and human herpes virus-6/-7 ...
First-trimester maternal plasma cell-free fetal DNA and preeclampsia
Objective: The purpose of this study was to determine whether, in pregnancies that experience preeclampsia, plasma cell-free fetal DNA (cffDNA) at 11-13 weeks of gestation is increased and whether this increase is related ...
Genetic diversity of RANTES gene promoter and susceptibility to coronary artery disease and restenosis after percutaneous coronary intervention
Regulated on activation, normal T cell expressed and secreted (RANTES) gene promoter is a regulatory region and a site of notable genetic diversity. In order to explore a possible interaction between RANTES promoter genetic ...
BRAF and RKIP are significantly decreased in cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma
Background: Actinic keratosis (AK) is a well-established pre-cancerous skin lesion that has the potential to progress to squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). However, little is known about the implication of BRAF and RKIP ...
RKIP and BRAF aberrations in human nasal polyps and the adjacent turbinate mucosae
Background: Little is known about the implication of BRAF and RKIP expression, or about the incidence of BRAF mutations in the formation of nasal polyposis. Objectives: To determine the expression levels of the genes BRAF ...
Activation of RAS Family Genes in Urothelial Carcinoma
Purpose: Bladder cancer is the fifth most common malignancy in men in Western society. We determined RAS codon 12 and 13 point mutations and evaluated mRNA expression levels in transitional cell carcinoma cases. Materials ...
Deregulation of the tumour suppressor genes p14ARF, p15 INK4b, p16INK4a and p53 in basal cell carcinoma
Background Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is a locally aggressive slowly growing tumour that rarely metastasizes and is mostly seen in older members of the population. Objectives To determine the involvement of the tumour ...
Mutational analysis of the BRAF gene in transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder
Purpose: Mutational activation of the MAP kinase pathway is frequently found in many types of cancer. Recently, activating mutations in the BRAF gene, an important activator of this pathway, have been described in several ...
Molecular detection methods of human papillomavirus (HPV)
Human papillomavirus (HPV) testing can identify women at risk of cervical cancer. Currently, molecular detection methods are the gold standard for identification of HPV. The three categories of molecular assays that are ...
