Lipid rafts/caveolae are membrane platforms for signaling molecules that regulate various cellular functions, including cell survival. To better understand the role of rafts in tumor progression and therapeutics, we investigated the effect of raft disruption on cell viability and compared raft levels in human cancer cell lines versus their normal(More)
OBJECTIVE Peak oxygen uptake (VO2peak) is a strong predictor of survival in cardiac patients. The aims of this study were to compare the effects of high interval training (HIT) to moderate continuous training (MCT) on VO2peak and to identify the safety of HIT in acute myocardial infarction patients with drug-eluting stent. DESIGN Twenty-eight acute(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the treatment outcome of angiocentric T-cell and natural killer (NK)/T-cell lymphoma, nasal type. METHODS Between February 1989 and March 2001, 53 patients with newly diagnosed angiocentric T-cell and NK/T-cell lymphoma, nasal type involving the head and neck, were treated with radiation therapy (RT).(More)
BACKGROUND This study was undertaken to evaluate the prognostic value of quantitative metabolic parameters in [(18) F]2-fluoro-2-deoxyglucose (FDG)-positron emission tomography (PET) for diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL). METHODS A total of 140 DLBCL patients underwent FDG-PET scans before rituximab, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and(More)
Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) in resource-poor population shows an early childhood peak with predominance of mixed cellularity (MCHL) and high Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) association, whereas HL in resource-rich population has a peak in ages 15-29 years with the predominance of nodular sclerosis (NSHL) and low EBV association. We examined the changing trend of HL in(More)
BACKGROUND It is well known that cardiac rehabilitation (CR) including regular exercise training (ET) is cardioprotective with respect to clinical events in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI). However, it is not known whether the regular ET may affect coronary restenosis after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) with stenting in AMI. The(More)
Exosomes are small membrane vesicles secreted from various types of cells. Tumor-derived exosomes contain MHC class I molecules and tumor-specific antigens, receiving attention as a potential cancer vaccine. For induction of efficient anti-tumor immunity, CD4+ helper T cells are required, which recognize appropriate MHC class II-peptide complexes. In this(More)
This study was launched to determine the prognostic significance of local tumor invasiveness (LTI) in 114 patients diagnosed with stage I E /II E extranodal natural killer (NK)/T-cell lymphoma, nasal type (NTCL). LTI was defined as bony invasion or destruction or tumor invasion of the skin. Complete remission (CR), overall survival (OS), and disease-free(More)
BACKGROUND It is well known that some trace elements such as zinc and copper play a significant role in many forms of hair loss. However, the effect of zinc and copper in the pathogenesis of hair loss is still unknown. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study is to evaluate the zinc and copper status in each of four types of hair loss. METHODS A study was(More)
