Previous studies have suggested the importance of CD8+ cytotoxic T-cells of hosts against neoplasms. Earlier studies and our previous investigation showed that a majority of tumor infiltrating T-cells in human basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) belonged to CD4+ T-cells. CD8+ cells were also present in the peritumor areas of human BCCs, but in smaller numbers.(More)
Many patients with Behçet disease (BD) develop lesions that clinically resemble those of erythema nodosum (EN) but differ from that condition with regard to their microscopic features. We examined 11 sections of EN-like lesions in BD and compared them with 9 sections of classic EN using routine histopathology and immunohistochemistry so as to form a(More)
AbstrAct The Internet has changed the way many companies do business, but has also tended to increase the disparity between firms in developed countries and those in developing countries. As the digital divide seems to grow, the question becomes how will developing countries catch up? We examine two large developing countries, China and India, in an attempt(More)

It begins in early childhood and is complicated by the development of painful flexion contractures, constrictions, and autoamputations of the digits. Only 11 cases of Olmsted syndrome have been reported to date. However,(More)
This article shows how the technical hype of 1990s has been transformed into the e-business organizations at the beginning of the 21st century. The authors took an interpretive stance in this study, grounded theory, and investigated the ontology of virtual organization by the metaphorical analysis. The metaphori-cal analysis adopted in this study provides(More)
Littoral cell angioma (LCA) is an extremely rare primary splenic tumor. There are few MRI and scintigraphic characteristics described. These characteristics may be most helpful in differentiating LCA from other primary vascular tumors. We present a 54-year-old woman found on CT to have a 7-cm mass within an enlarged spleen. LCA was diagnosed by ultrasound(More)
Scar formation following skin injury can be a major psychosocial and physiological problem. However, the mechanisms of scar formation are still not completely understood. Previous studies have shown that wound healing in oral mucosa is faster, associates with a reduced inflammatory response and results to significantly reduced scar formation compared with(More)

Two patients with incapacitating isolated buttock claudication and bilateral hypogastric artery occlusive disease were treated by balloon dilatation of a single hypogastric artery. Symptoms were eliminated in 1 patient and reduced in the other. Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty represents an effective therapeutic approach in this relatively uncommon(More)
The ever increasing scale of e-commerce has today presented a big range of choice for the customer. Customer uses online product reviews as a primary criterion to make a decision for his purchase. These product reviews are scattered all around the internet, and this data has a great potential value. However, it is also unstructured and written in a natural(More)
The entity-relationship (ER) model is clearly established as a conceptual model of choice when building relational database systems. Once the ER model is built, it can be mapped algorithmically to the relational model and consequently to the data definition language (DDL) of SQL. Algorithmic mapping of the ER model to the relational model can produce(More)
