Amniotic membrane patching promotes healing and inhibits proteinase activity on wound healing following acute corneal alkali burn.
Immediate intervention for acute alkali burns with AM as a temporary patch promotes wound healing by inhibiting proteinase activity and PMNs infiltration. Expand
Genetic polymorphism of merozoite surface protein-1 and merozoite surface protein-2 in Plasmodium falciparum field isolates from Myanmar
Diverse allelic polymorphism of MSP-1 and Msp-2 was identified in P. falciparum field isolates from Myanmar and most of the infections were determined to be mixed infections, as was a high degree of multiplicity of infection. Expand
Genetic polymorphism and natural selection of Duffy binding protein of Plasmodium vivax Myanmar isolates
PvDBPII of Myanmar P. vivax isolates displays a high level of genetic polymorphism and is under selective pressure, useful for understanding the nature of the P.vivax population in Myanmar and for development of PvDBP II-based vaccine. Expand
High frequency of genetic diversity of Plasmodium vivax field isolates in Myanmar.
The results collectively suggest that the P. vivax population in Myanmar is highly diverse and multiple clonal infections are prevalent in the country. Expand

Many immune down-regulatory molecules have been isolated from parasites, including cystatin (cystain protease inhibitor). In a previous study, we isolated and characterized Type I cystatinExpand
Current situation of scrub typhus in South Korea from 2001–2013
A rapid increase in the incidence of patients with tsutsugamushi disease was observed in most areas from 2001 to 2013, with the majority of cases reported in the western and southern coast. Expand
Characterization and pathogenetic role of proteinase from Acanthamoeba castellanii.
The fact that cytopathic effects and development of corneal lesions caused by the proteinase of Acanthamoeba were inhibited by theproteinase inhibitor suggest that the Proteinase inhibitor might be useful as a therapeutic agent. Expand
Genetic variations of the dihydrofolate reductase gene of Plasmodium vivax in Mandalay Division, Myanmar
The results suggest that antifolate-resistant P. vivax is becoming widespread in Myanmar, as it also is in the neighboring countries in Southeast Asia, and appears that the drug resistance situation may be worsening in the country. Expand
Purification and Characterization of an Extracellular Serine Proteinase from Acanthamoeba castellanii
The possible role of this enzyme in the pathogenesis of Acanthamoeba is suggested, as it exhibited strong cytopathic effects on human corneal epithelial cells and fibroblast cells. Expand
Genetic diversity and natural selection of Duffy binding protein of Plasmodium vivax Korean isolates.
The results suggest that PvDBPII of Korean P. vivax isolates display a limited genetic polymorphism and are under selective pressure, which has significant implications for understanding the nature of the P.vivax population circulating in Korea and useful information for development of malaria vaccines based on this antigen.
