  In this study, ethanol, water, methanol and acetone extracts of Tulipa sintenisii (Baker) were tested for in vitro antimicrobial activity using disc diffusion method. All of the extracts exhibited antimicrobial effect on Staphylococcus auresus (ATCC 6538), Escherichia coli (ATCC 25922) and Pseudomonas syringae pv. Tomato (DSM 60407 (DSMZ)). While streptomycin (10 μg) which is used for control generates a zone diameter of approximately 15 mm against test microorganisms, it is ascertained that acetone extract generates an inhibition zone diameter of 10.5 mm against Staphylococcus auresus, 12 mm against Escherichia coli and an inhibition zone diameter of 14 mm against Pseudommonas syringae pv. tomato. As a result of the study, it can be said that the extracts of Tulipa sintenisii involves antimicrobial substances against the microorganisms which are used for this study. However, much more complicated researches are needed.

  The discovery that hyperhomocysteinemia may be responsible for several pregnacy complications has only recently been made. With this study, it is aimed to determine levels of homocysteine in pregnant women encountered with abortus imminens, abortus incompletus and abortus. In the study in 35 abortus imminens, 36 abortus incompletus, 30 abortus missed and 33 healthy pregnant women, homocysteine levels are specified by making use of competitive immunoassay technique. Homocysteine levels were determined in the abortus imminens group as 8.78±5.29 μmol L-1 in the abortus incompletus group as 10.55±4.49 μmol L-1, in abortus missed group as 9.03±4.29 μmol L-1 and as 4.87±1.27 μmol L-1 in the control group. Homocysteine levels were found to be excessively high with all abortus groups when compared to the control group (p<0.0001). The homocysteine levels of pregnant individuals using folic acid (7.354±3.78 μmol L-1) in comparison to those not using (9.58±5.27 μmol L-1) was determined as significantly low (p<0.01). As a result of this study, it cannot be explained that all abortus develop in parallel with hyperhomocysteinemia. However, hyperhomocysteinemia is together with an increased risk of abortus and such a risk might possibly be reduced with use of folic acid, it should definitely be recommended to use folic acid.
