BACKGROUND It is generally accepted that the development of cancer in the oral mucosa is preceded by an identifiable non-invasive precursor lesion. The aim of this follow-up study was to estimate the rate and the time to transformation in a group of patients from southern Taiwan with potentially malignant oral epithelial lesions. METHODS The follow-up(More)
Intra-oral lipoma is a well-known entity, but lipomatous tumors including salivary gland tissue containing clustered or peripherally located ducts and acinar cells are uncommon. They are a newly recognized entity of salivary gland lipoma, designated sialolipoma. We describe a case of sialolipoma arising in the floor of the mouth presenting with apparently(More)
To investigate the role of circulating intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) and E-selectin in ischaemic stroke, serum levels of ICAM-1 and E-selectin were measured by ELISA in 51 patients with acute ischaemic stroke within 24 h, and in 25 age-matched healthy controls and 10 young healthy volunteers. Carotid Doppler ultrasonography showed a significant(More)
Biomechanics of the knee during stair-ascent has mostly been studied using skin-marker-based motion analysis techniques, but no study has reported a complete assessment of the soft tissue artifacts (STA) and their effects on the calculated joint center translation, angles and moments at the knee in normal subjects during this activity. This study aimed to(More)
Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae exotoxins (Apx) are major virulence factors that play important roles in the pathogenesis of pleuropneumonia in swine. A previous study has demonstrated that native ApxI at low concentrations induces apoptosis in primary porcine alveolar macrophages (PAMs) via a caspase-3-dependent pathway. However, the molecular mechanisms(More)
Salmonella enterica serovar Choleraesuis (Salmonella Choleraesuis) causes a lethal systemic infection (salmonellosis) in swine. Live attenuated Salmonella Choleraesuis vaccines are effective in preventing the disease, and isolates of Salmonella Choleraesuis with mutations in the cAMP-receptor protein (CRP) gene (Salmonella Choleraesuis Deltacrp) are the(More)
The current study aimed to quantify the soft tissue artifacts of selected markers on the thigh and shank, and their effects on the calculated joint center translations, angles and moments of the knee during sit-to-stand. Ten patients with total knee replacements rose from a chair under simultaneous surveillance of a motion capture system, a force-plate and(More)
This article describes the clinical and pathological features of an orphan 7-day-old, male Formosan sambar fawn that was hospitalized for treatment of weakness. The fawn had been deprived of colostrum and developed suppurative meningitis that was attributed to Escherichia coli.
A composite lymphoma is defined as the simultaneous occurrence of two histologically different types of lymphomas situated in one anatomical location. Reports of composite B- and T-cell lymphomas, especially in the head and neck region, are rare. We describe a 76-year-old Taiwanese aboriginal female patient clinically presenting with a midfacial necrotizing(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to share the experience of establishing a virtual microscope and telepathology system for the oral and maxillofacial pathology laboratory course in a dental school. STUDY DESIGN A dot-slide system has been used to generate digitized microscopic slides, which are placed on an image server that is available online. (More)
