Most of the patients were in Killip class I and II at presentation in the study (Cases) as well as the control group. Twenty-three in the study group and 10 in the control group were in Killip class I, while 7 in the study and 18 in the control group were in Killip class II.
Results: The mean age of the women was 30.20 +- 4.88 in the experimental group and 30.85 +- 4.47 in the control group. In the control group, the mean time of flatulation was 26.33 +- 7.54 hours, whereas the mean time was 13.44 +- 6.56 hours in the experimental group.
Serum ELISA showed that the levels of TNF-[alpha] in the serum of the SR group were significantly decreased (704 [+ or -] 15.63 pg/mL in WT control group, 323 [+ or -] 19.22 pg/mL in WT SR group, 721 [+ or -] 18.77 pg/mL in KO control group, and 327 [+ or -] 23.03 pg/mL in KO SR group) and there was a significant difference between the WT control group and the WT SR group (P=0.000), between the WT SR group and the KO SR group (P=0.806), and between the KO control group and the KO SR group (P=0.000).
At the end of follow-up, no evidence of disease in control group and study group was 90.5% (48/53) and 89% (49/55), respectively.
In this study, when levels of TAS in the aqueous humor and blood of patients with PEX were compared with those of the control group, TAS levels were significantly lower; however, TOS levels were reported to be significantly higher.
A difference in the expression of Bax mRNA in the normal control group during the different experimental stages was not observed.
1), the arithmetic mean recorded 113.75 kg in the initial assessment and 125.39 cm in the final assessment, and therefore, an increase of 11.64 cm for the experimental group and of 122.30 cm in the initial assessment and of 128.44 in the final assessment, and therefore, an increase of 4.14 cm in the control group. The maximum value recorded 129 cm the initial assessment and 140 cm in the final assessment and therefore an increase of 11 cm for the experimental group and 132 cm in the initial assessment, 140 cm in the final assessment and therefore, an increase of 8 cm in the control group.
Seven days after surgery, the mice of blank control group, VEGF group, and NGF group were anesthetized using pentobarbital sodium as previous described, and then intramuscular injection was administered by injecting evenly across the belly of the gastrocnemius muscle using a 27-gauge needle as follows: Blank control group (125 [micro]l 1% poloxamer/50 mmol NaCl), VEGF group (125 [micro]g VEGF[sub]165 plasmid [Invitrogen, USA] in 125 [micro]l 1% poloxamer/50 mmol NaCl), and NGF group (125 [micro]g NGF plasmid [Invitrogen, USA] in 125 [micro]l 1% poloxamer/50 mmol NaCl).
In our study, the concentration of SAA was determined to be higher in the calves clinically diagnosed with pneumonia, pneumoenteritis and enteritis than in the control group. We consider that the reason for this is inflammation is the same case that in the studies mentioned above.
Table 4 shows the six-year graduation rates of URP students compared to those of students in the two control groups. The six-year graduation rates were significantly higher for the URP students compared to students in Control Group I (p < 0.0001) and Control Group II (p < 0.0060).
Five centers were randomly assigned to the experimental group, five to the control group and three to an observation-only group.
The control group subjects were then crossed over to the treatment group, and, at 12 months, the response rates were about 70% and nearly 60% in the treatment and control groups, respectively, he said.
