We conducted a randomised prospective study to evaluate the clinical and radiological results of a mobile- and fixed-bearing total knee replacement of similar design in 174 patients who had bilateral simultaneous knee replacement. The mean follow-up was for 5.6 years (5.2 to 6.1). The total knee score, pain score, functional score and range of movement were(More)
We performed a prospective, randomised study to compare the results and rates of complications of primary total knee replacement performed using a quadriceps-sparing technique or a standard arthrotomy in 120 patients who had bilateral total knee replacements carried out under the same anaesthetic. The clinical results, pain scales, surgical and hospital(More)
PURPOSE We conducted a phase III randomized clinical trial to compare two myeloablative conditioning regimens for allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) in patients with leukemia and myelodysplastic syndrome. PATIENTS AND METHODS After randomization, 64 patients received busulfan (3.2 mg/kg per day × 4 days) plus cyclophosphamide (60 mg/kg(More)
We describe a 55-year-old woman who presented with pancytopenia with a normocytic and normochromic anemia which was progressive despite conventional treatments such as folic acid, vitamin B6, and oxymetholone. Her physical findings and history of a previous massive postpartum hemorrhage suggested Sheehan’s syndrome, and the pituitary hormonal studies(More)
A recent study from Germany showed that WT1 single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs16754 was an independent prognostic factor in cytogenetically normal acute myeloid leukemia (CN-AML). We analyzed clinical impact of the WT1 rs16754 genotype on disease characteristics and outcomes in Korean patients with CN-AML. A total of 73 patients with CN-AML were(More)
Any role for reduced-intensity conditioning (RIC) before hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) from a human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-haploidentical donor remains to be defined. We therefore assessed 83 patients (age, 16-70 years): 68 with acute leukemia (including 34 in remission and 34 with refractory disease) and 15 patients with myelodysplastic(More)
The aim of the Korean Imatinib Discontinuation Study was to identify predictors for safe and successful imatinib discontinuation. A total of 90 patients with a follow-up of ≥12 months were analyzed. After a median follow-up of 26.6 months after imatinib discontinuation, 37 patients lost the major molecular response. The probability of sustained major(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Signal transducers and activators of transcription (STAT) behave as signal transducers in the cytoplasm and as transcription factors in the nucleus. In the current study, we analyzed the immunohistochemical staining patterns of gastrectomy tissue specimens. We investigated the expression of STAT3 and STAT5 and estimated the relationship(More)
OBJECTIVE There is little information on the efficacy of interferon-gamma-releasing assays for predicting subsequent active tuberculosis in hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HCT) recipients. METHODS We prospectively enrolled adult patients admitted for allogeneic HCT during a 3-year period in an intermediate-tuberculosis-burden country. All the patients(More)
