We correlated serial brain MRIs with neuropathological findings in a 16-year-old female whose autopsy was consistent with Wernicke's encephalopathy (WE). Diffusion-weighted imaging, diffusion coefficients mapping and neuropathology findings were suggested vasogenic edema in the periaqueductal and peri-the-fourth ventricular areas. This is the first(More)

We have already reported the first result on the all-particle spectrum around the knee region based on data from 2000 November to 2001 October observed by the Tibet-III air-shower array. In this paper, we present an updated result using data set collected in the period from 2000 November through 2004 October in a wide range over 3 decades between 10 14 eV(More)
Lymph node metastasis (LNM) in gastric cancer is associated with higher rate of cancer recurrence and poor prognosis. As a result, a reliable biomarker for the prediction of LNM is important and would be valuable in the clinical practice. MiRNA microarray revealed that ten miRNAs were expressed significantly different among patients with or without LNM. A(More)
Protein tyrosine kinases (PTKs) are a major class of proto-oncogenes that are involved in tumor progression. The purpose of this study was to establish a comprehensive PTK expression profile in gastric cancers, with the objective of identifying possible biomarkers for gastric cancer progression. We have designed degenerate primers according to the consensus(More)
Endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) or endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is an effective alternative treatment for early gastric cancer. However, a major concern is the likelihood of lymph node metastasis. From December 1987 to December 2006, 391 patients who underwent curative surgery for gastric cancer with mucosal (T1a, n = 265) or submucosal (T1b, n(More)
Adenosquamous carcinoma of the stomach is a very rare disease, consisting of less than 0.4 % of all stomach cancer. From 1991 to 2013, a total of 2800 patients received gastrectomy for gastric cancer at Taipei Veterans General hospital. Among them, seven patients (0.25 %) diagnosed as adenosquamous carcinoma were enrolled. The clinicopathologic(More)

The intensity of Galactic cosmic rays is nearly isotropic because of the influence of magnetic fields in the Milky Way. Here, we present two-dimensional high-precision anisotropy measurement for energies from a few to several hundred teraelectronvolts (TeV), using the large data sample of the Tibet Air Shower Arrays. Besides revealing finer details of the(More)
The investigation of prognostic factor for gastric cancer is still desirable because of dismal prognosis in gastric cancer. Lauren’s classification is currently a useful histological classification. There are few large series evaluating the prognostic significance of Lauren’s classification in gastric cancer. From January 1987 to December 2013, a total of(More)
BACKGROUND Minimally invasive surgery, including laparoscopic and robotic gastrectomy, has become more popular in the treatment of gastric cancer. However, few studies have compared the learning curves between laparoscopic and robotic gastrectomy for gastric cancer. METHODS Data were prospectively collected between July 2008 and Aug 2014. A total of 145(More)
BACKGROUND The best sites for biopsy-based tests to evaluate H. pylori infection in gastritis with atrophy are not well known. This study aimed to evaluate the site and sensitivity of biopsy-based tests in terms of degree of gastritis with atrophy. METHODS One hundred and sixty-four (164) uninvestigated dyspepsia patients were enrolled. Biopsy-based tests(More)
