BACKGROUND Thyroid cancer has increased globally, with a prominent increase in small, papillary thyroid cancers (PTC). The Korean population has a high iodine intake, high prevalence of BRAF V600E mutations, and family histories of thyroid cancer. We examined the clinicopathological characteristics and outcomes of thyroid cancers in Korean patients over(More)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
= 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)
