An analysis of the complete Molluscum contagiosum virus (MCV-1) genome sequence revealed a 104-amino-acid open reading frame (MC148R) that is structurally related to the beta (CC) family of chemokines. The predicted MCV chemokine homolog (MCCH) has a deletion in the NH2-terminal activation domain, suggesting the absence of chemoattractant activity. The(More)
Elective surgery for liver hemangioma is controversial. We reviewed long-term outcomes following elective hepatectomy or observation only for symptomatic and asymptomatic liver hemangioma. All patients (n = 307) with liver hemangioma referred to our hospital for surgical evaluation from January 1988 to December 2009 were identified, and imaging results,(More)
Molluscum contagiosum virus (MCV), a member of the family Poxviridae, replicates well in vivo but cannot be propagated in cell culture. The coding capacity of the MCV genome was previously determined by DNA nucleotide sequence analysis. The objective of the present study was to establish experimental systems for the identification and characterization of(More)
Tumor cell dissemination from the primary tumor site to distant organs is one of the characteristic properties of malignant tumors and represents a crucial step in the progression of disease. Although the pattern of spread may vary in different types of carcinomas, dissemination via the lymphatic system represents a common event in metastasis. The extent of(More)
Bioimpedance analysis (BIA) estimates the amount of total body water (TBW) in the human body. During sports, however, the increased skin temperature distorts bioimpedance measurements and, thus, prevents the application of BIA. In this paper, we propose a two-stage regression that includes temperature information in order to correct the temperaturedistorted(More)
Quantitative estimation of water loss during physical exercise is of importance because dehydration can impair both muscular strength and aerobic endurance. A physiological indicator for deficit of total body water (TBW) might be the concentration of electrolytes in sweat. It has been shown that concentrations differ after physical exercise depending on(More)
The amount of total body water (TBW) can be estimated based on bioimpedance measurements of the human body. In sports, TBW estimations are of importance because mild water losses can impair muscular strength and aerobic endurance. Severe water losses can even be life threatening. TBW estimations based on bioimpedance, however, fail during sports because the(More)
