    • Application of the RIMARC algorithm to a large data set of action potentials and clinical parameters for risk prediction of atrial fibrillation 

      Ravens, U.; Katircioglu-Öztürk, D.; Wettwer, E.; Christ, T.; Dobrev, D.; Voigt, N.; Poulet, C.; Loose, S.; Simon, J.; Stein, A.; Matschke, K.; Knaut, M.; Oto, E.; Oto, A.; Güvenir, H. A. (Springer, 2015)
      Ex vivo recorded action potentials (APs) in human right atrial tissue from patients in sinus rhythm (SR) or atrial fibrillation (AF) display a characteristic spike-and-dome or triangular shape, respectively, but variability ...
    • Data mining experiments on the Angiotensin II-Antagonist in Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation (ANTIPAF-AFNET 2) trial: ‘exposing the invisible’ 

      Okutucu, S.; Katircioglu-Öztürk, D.; Oto, E.; Güvenir, H. A.; Karaagaoglu, E.; Oto, A.; Meinertz, T.; Goette, A. (Oxford University Press, 2016)
      Aims: The aims of this study include (i) pursuing data-mining experiments on the Angiotensin II-Antagonist in Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation (ANTIPAF-AFNET 2) trial dataset containing atrial fibrillation (AF) burden scores ...
    • The effects of exchange rate risk on economic performance: the Turkish experience 

      Berument, H.; Dincer, N. N. (Routledge, 2004)
      This study examines the effects of real exchange rate risk on the economic performance for an emerging, small open economy: Turkey. When the ratios of the total foreign exchange liabilities of the Central Bank of the ...
    • Extremely skewed X-chromosome inactivation patterns in women with recurrent spontaneous abortion 

      Bagislar, S.; Ustuner, I.; Cengiz, B.; Soylemez, F.; Akyerli, C. B.; Ceylaner, S.; Ceylaner, G.; Acar, A.; Ozcelik, T. (Wiley-Blackwell Publishing Asia, 2006)
      Background: The role of extremely skewed X-chromosome inactivation (XCI) has been questioned in the pathogenesis of recurrent spontaneous abortion (RSA) but the results obtained were conflicting. Aims: We therefore ...
    • High school students’ knowledge level of, attitudes toward and interest in cancer 

      Yıldırım, Ilgın (Bilkent University, 2017-06)
      Cancer is one of the most common diseases in recent years. However, there are very few studies which investigate adolescents’ cancer awareness and thoughts about cancer in Turkey. This research explored high school students’ ...
