BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma (PPAR-gamma), COX-2 and 15-lipoxygenase (LOX)-1 have been shown to be involved in tumour growth. However, the roles of PPAR-gamma, COX-2 or 15-LOX-1 in gastric tumourigenesis remain unclear. Here, we investigate the role of 15-LOX-1 induction by honokiol, a small-molecular weight(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Intra-abdominal infection can be a life-threatening condition in children, and aggressive treatment is usually needed. The treatment should include surgical correction and drainage, and administration of antimicrobials that are effective against both aerobic and anaerobic microorganisms. This study investigated the microbiological(More)
Mutations in the mouse formin (Fmn) gene, formerly known as the limb deformity (ld) gene, give rise to recessively inherited limb deformities and renal malformations or aplasia. The Fmn gene encodes many differentially processed transcripts that are expressed in both adult and embryonic tissues. To study the genomic organization of the Fmn locus, we have(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) infections in skin and soft tissues are increasing in children in Taiwan. This study investigated the outcomes of therapy with or without appropriate antibiotics among children with CA-MRSA skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs), and analyzed the outcomes of(More)
