Introduction: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common endocrinopathy associated with increased cardiovascular risk in reproductive aged women. Circulating osteoprotegerin (OPG) and soluble receptor activator of nuclear factor κB ligand (sRANKL) are associated with subclinical atherosclerosis. Our aim is to evalutate serum OPG and sRANKL levels and their relations with cardiovascular and metabolic markers in paients with obese and non-obese PCOS.<p class="abstext"...

Clinical significance of ADAMTS1, ADAMTS5, ADAMTS9 aggrecanases and IL17, IL23, IL33 cytokines in polycystic ovary syndrome

Karakose Melia , Demircan Kadir , Tutal Esra , Demirci Taner , Arslan Muyesser Sayki , Sahin Mustafa , Celik Huseyin Tugrul , Kazanci Fatmanur , Cakal Erman , Delibasi Tuncay

Introduction: Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common endocrine disorders among women of reproductive age. A disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin-like motifs (ADAMTS) are involved in inflammation and fertility. The aim of this investigation was to evaluate to serum levels of ADAMTS1, ADAMTS5, ADAMTS9, IL17, IL23, IL33 and to find out the relationship between these inflammatory cytokines and ADAMTSs in PCOS patients.Met...

Introduction: Vitamin D deficiency is a common health problem. Vitamin D supplements are used to improve vitamin D status. However, there are few data about what doses to give and how often to give. The aim of this study is to determine the effects of single high dose or daily low dose oral cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) on vitamin D levels and muscle strenght.Methods and design: 60 healthy postmenouposal women who had serum vitamin D levels wer...

Introduction: The relationship between hyperthyroidism and voice disorders has not been identified before. The aim of this study was to investigate the changes in the acoustic values in patients with subclinical thyrotoxicosis.Methods: In this study, acoustic voice analysis was evaluated in a total of 115 cases. Sixty of 115 individuals (18 men and 42 women) had subclinical thyrotoxicosis, aged between 18 and 65 years, and all had no history of laryngeal...

Introduction: Paragangliomas are neuroendocrine tumors arising from extra-adrenal chromaffin cells. Paragangliomas of the head and neck frequently originate from the paraganglionic system including the carotid bifurcation, middle ear and the ganglion nodosum of the vagus nerve. However, of paragangliomas of the head and neck, only 1–3% secrete hormones and majority are non-functional. Here, we describe a case of non-functional paraganglioma confused with parathyroid adeno...
