Using PCR with primers derived from a non-coding region of the human TT virus (TTV) genome, the TTV sequence in serum samples obtained from pigs (Sus domesticus), dogs (Canis familiaris) and cats (Felis catus) was identified and the entire genomic sequence was determined for each representative isolate. Three TTV isolates (Sd-TTV31 from a pig, Cf-TTV10 from(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS In both SHARP and Asia-Pacific Study, sorafenib was proved to improve the overall survival of the patients with hepatocellular carcinoma. However, factors contributing to the improvement of overall survival of the patients treated by sorafenib have not been fully evaluated. In this study, patient-derived, background liver disease-derived and(More)
Hemodialysis, a useful treatment for patients with severely compromised renal function, has also unfavorable side effects. In the ophthalmologic area, a rise in intraocular pressure (IOP) during dialysis accompanied by ocular pain has been reported. In our study when measuring IOP, as well as serum osmolality and plasma CO2 pressure every 30 minutes during(More)
