The occurrence of Aichi virus, a picornavirus associated with acute gastroenteritis, has so far only been described in Asian countries. This study reports the first finding of Aichi virus in clinical specimens from Germany and Brazil. The nucleotide sequences of both a German and a Brazilian isolate were determined, analyzed, and compared to known Aichi(More)
A German mining lake and the supplying surface waters, which are located downstream of a sewage plant, were examined regarding their microbiological and virological quality. Between October 2002 and September 2003, specific PCR methods were used to determine the occurrence of enteric viruses in 123 water specimens drawn at different sites downstream of the(More)
Background A wide range of response rates have been reported in HER2-positive gastric cancer (GC) patients treated with trastuzumab. Other HER2-targeted therapies for GC have yet to show efficacy in clinical trials. These findings raise question about the ability of standard HER2 diagnostics to accurately distinguish between GC patients who would and would(More)
The goal of this work was to analyze the outcome of adjuvant chemoradiotherapy for patients with gallbladder cancer who underwent surgical resection and to identify the prognostic factors for these patients. Between August 1989 and November 2006, 47 patients with gallbladder cancer underwent surgical resection followed by adjuvant radiotherapy. There were(More)
Background We evaluated the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and safety of sunitinib plus capecitabine/cisplatin (XP) or capecitabine/oxaliplatin (XELOX) in Korean patients with advanced gastric cancer (GC). Methods Sunitinib (37.5 or 25 mg/day) was administered on a 2-week-on/1-week-off schedule with chemotherapy. Assessments included dose-limiting toxicity(More)
The purpose of this research was to analyze the relationship between dose–volumetric parameters and the development of diabetes mellitus (DM) in patients treated with chemoradiotherapy (CRT) following curative resection for upper gastrointestinal (GI) cancers. Medical records of patients who underwent postoperative CRT following curative resection, either(More)
The accuracy of genomic estimated breeding values (GEBV) was evaluated for sixteen meat quality traits in a Berkshire population (n = 1,191) that was collected from Dasan breeding farm, Namwon, Korea. The animals were genotyped with the Illumina porcine 62 K single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) bead chips, in which a set of 36,605 SNPs were available after(More)
