Liquid and gas chromatography are commonly used to measure organophosphorus pesticides. However, these methods are relatively time consuming and require a tedious sample pretreatment. Here, we applied the localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) of gold nanoparticles covalently coupled with acetylcholinesterase (AChE) to create a biosensor for detecting(More)
Pogostemon cablin (PC) is a herbal medicine traditionally applied to treat not only common cold, nausea and diarrhea but also headache and fever. The aim of this study was to investigate the analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties of standardized PC methanol extract (PCMeOH) in vivo. Investigations were performed in mice with two analgesic models. One(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of green tea extract on patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and lipid abnormalities on glycemic and lipid profiles, and hormone peptides by a double-blinded, randomized and placebo-controlled clinical trial. This trial enrolled 92 subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus and lipid abnormalities(More)
We report a case of lung cancer with multiple metastases to the brain and internal auditory canal. A 59-year-old man complained about persistent and progressive vertigo for 3 weeks with rapidly developing left-sided hearing loss and tinnitus. Bilateral intact eardrums and unsteady gait were noted on physical examination. There was no nystagmus. Pure tone(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS To examine the effect and safety of high-dose green tea extract (Epigallocatechin gallate, EGCG) at a daily dosage of 856.8 mg on weight reduction and changes of lipid profile and obesity-related hormone peptides in women with central obesity. METHODS We conducted a randomized, double-blind trial registered under ClinicalTrials.gov(More)

Acute diffuse otitis externa (swimmer's ear), otomycosis, exostoses, traumatic eardrum perforation, middle ear infection, and barotraumas of the inner ear are common problems in swimmers and people engaged in aqua activities. The most common ear problem in swimmers is acute diffuse otitis externa, with Pseudomonas aeruginosa being the most common pathogen.(More)
Biseugenol (Eug) is known to antiproliferative of cancer cells; however, to date, the antiperitoneal dissemination effects have not been studied in any mouse cancer model. In this study, Aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) expression was associated with lymph node and distant metastasis in patients with gastric cancer and was correlated with(More)
Atherosclerosis and its associated complications represent major causes of morbidity and mortality in the industrialized or Western countries. Monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) is critical for the initiating and developing of atherosclerotic lesions. Interleukin-8 (IL-8), a CXC chemokine, stimulates neutrophil chemotaxis. Ticlopidine is one of the(More)
