Utility of Daily Catheter-Drawn Blood Cultures to Predict Catheter-Related Bacteremia in Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplanted Patients/Kateterden Gunluk Alinan Kan Kulturlerinin Hematopoietik Kok Hucre Nakli Yapilan Hastalarda Kateter Ile Iliskili Bakteriyemiyi Ongormedeki Yaran (Research Article) (Report)

Introduction Infectious complications constitute an important cause of morbidity and mortality in patients who undergo hematopoietic progenitor transplantation (HSCT). Bloodstream infections are among the most frequent bacterial infections in these patients, and central vascular catheters are a very common source of the bacteremia [1,2]. Catheter-related bacteremia (CRB) is an increasing-in-frequency and potentially life-threatening complication.

Introduction Since its identification in 1981, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and the associated acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) remain a major health burden globally. Recent estimates indicate that over 35 million people are affected worldwide, with mortality counts of over 20 million [1]. About 70% of these deaths have occurred in sub-Saharan Africa [1], where […]

Transient Depletion of Innate Immunity in Varicella Infections in Otherwise Healthy Children/ Saglikli Cocuklarda Gelisen Varisella Enfeksiyonu Sirasinda Bagisiklik Sisteminde Gecici Baskilanma (Research Article) (Report)

Transient Depletion of Innate Immunity in Varicella Infections in Otherwise Healthy Children/ Saglikli Cocuklarda Gelisen Varisella Enfeksiyonu Sirasinda Bagisiklik Sisteminde Gecici Baskilanma (Research Article) (Report)

Introduction Varicella is a common childhood infection and can be complicated by secondary bacterial infection, pneumonia, acute cerebellar ataxia, meningoencephalitis, Reye’s syndrome, purpura fulminans and hemophagocytic syndrome, especially in immunocompromised hosts [1]. After the host is infected by varicella zoster virus (VZV) via droplets, VZV completes 10 to 21 days of an incubation period in […]

Disclosure of Child Murder: A Case Study of Ethical Dilemmas in Research (Ethics IN Research) (Report)

Disclosure of Child Murder: A Case Study of Ethical Dilemmas in Research (Ethics IN Research) (Report)

Disclosures of unreported incriminating information are rarely documented in research; researchers therefore often do not know how to respond when cases arise. Disclosure may occur when respondents volunteer information, without necessarily being asked, and presents an ethical dilemma. Researchers have to choose between maintaining confidentiality and public protection. Debate on confidentiality in research is ongoing; […]

Assessing the Medical Risks of Human Oocyte Donation for Stem Cell Research

Assessing the Medical Risks of Human Oocyte Donation for Stem Cell Research

It is widely understood that stem cell treatments have the potential to revolutionize medicine. Because of this potential, in 2004 California voters approved Proposition 71 to set up a 10-year, $3 billion program to fund research on stem cells. Under the direction of the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine, this program will pay to build […]
