We report the characteristics of three cell lines (designated, SNU-80, SNU-373 and SNU-790), which were established from two papillary carcinomas and one anaplastic carcinoma obtained from three Korean thyroid carcinoma patients. All cell lines grow as adherent cells. Electron microscopy characteristically showed cytoplasmic invaginations of nuclei and(More)
OBJECTIVE The Malaysian Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPG) for Management of Dementia (second edition) was launched in April 2010 by the Ministry of Health Malaysia. A training programme for the management of dementia, involving all categories of staff working at primary and secondary centres, was implemented to ensure that care delivery for people with(More)
Buckled thin films on elastomeric substrates have many applications. Films of this type exhibit periodic, sinusoidal " wavy " relief profiles, except near edges that lie perpendicular to the wavevector associated with waves. In these locations, the amplitudes of the waves steadily decrease until the films become completely flat, in a manner that can be used(More)
Women with hyperprolactinemia have been reported to have hyperandrogenemia and/or insulin resistance. However, little is known about the association of hyperandrogenemia and insulin resistance in these women. To investigate whether hyperandrogenemia and/or insulin resistance occur in hyperprolactinemic women, and to assess the relationship between them, we(More)
The authors measured thyrotropin binding inhibitory immunoglobulin (TBII), thyroid stimulating antibody (TSAb), and thyroid stimulation blocking antibody (TSBAb) sequentially in patients who developed hyperthyroidism following primary hypothyroidism, and compared changes in these various functional parameters of thyrotropin receptor antibody (TRAb) with(More)
OBJECTIVES The prognosis of IDDM is mainly dependent on complicated diabetic nephropathy which is probably determined by both metabolic abnormalities and genetic predisposition. Angiotensin I converting enzyme (ACE) regulates systemic and renal circulations through angiotensin II formation and kinins metabolism. The insertion(i)/deletion(D) polymorphism in(More)
= Abstract = Patients with supratentorial cerebral infarction frequently show depressed metabolic activity in the contralateral cerebellar hemisphere which is known as crossed cerebellar diaschisis(CCD). In order to investigate the relationship between this phenomenon and the characteristics of the supratentorial lesion, we retrospectively evaluated the(More)
The myocardial uptake of In-111 antimyosin Fab and Tc-99m pyrophosphate was studied in dogs undergoing coronary artery occlusion for 90 minutes followed by reperfusion. The regional myocardial blood flow was determined by injecting Sc-46 labeled microsphere and was related to the relative concentrations of In-111 antimyosin and Tc-99m pyrophosphate. There(More)
We studied blocking type TSH receptor antibodies in 28 patients with primary myxedema and 21 patients with goitrous Hashimoto's thyroiditis by measuring the ability of their IgG to inhibit TSH binding to its receptor, and to inhibit TSH-stimulated cAMP increases and 3H-thymidine incorporation in a rat thyroid cell line, FRTL-5. The incidences of TSH binding(More)
