Foam cell formation from macrophage is a major cause of atherosclerosis. An efficient macrophage-specific promoter is required for the targeting to macrophages. In this study, we develop a macrophage-specific synthetic promoter for the therapeutic application of adiponectin (APN), an antiatherogenic gene. Synthetic promoter-146 (SP146), registered on the(More)

We compared the incidence of exposure of the hydroxyapatite implant after evisceration according to the position of scleral windows which allow rapid fibrovascularization into the implant. Three patients (10%) developed tissue breakdown and exposure of the hydroxyapatite, out of 30 patients who had external scleral windows located in a position just(More)
Cefazolin treatment failure has been observed in high-inoculum infections caused by methicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA) with a cefazolin inoculum effect (CIE). However, data on the characteristics and risk factors for the acquisition of CIE-positive MSSA infection are scarce. CIE positivity was measured as an MIC ≥ 16 μg/ml with a high(More)
