Background: The aim of this study was to determine the imaging characteristics of presacral epidermoid cysts and correlate the imaging findings with the histopathologic findings. Methods: We retrospectively reviewed sonographic, computed tomographic, and magnetic resonance examinations in four consecutive patients with a pathologically proven presacral(More)
Heme oxygenase (HO)-1 expression via nuclear factor-erythroid 2-related factor 2 (Nrf2) activation has an ability to inhibit tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α and interleukin (IL)-6 production. Costunolide has been reported to inhibit IL-1 production, but whether other cytokines could be inhibited remains to be confirmed. We investigated the effects of(More)
We tested recent evidence that ischemic preconditioning (PC) involves in translocation of protein kinase C (PKC) from the cytosol to myocyte membrane. Isolated Langendorff-perfused rabbit hearts (n=96) were subjected to 60 or 45 min of ischemia (I) and 120 min of reperfusion (R) with or without PC (4 cycles of 5 min I and 5 min R; or single dose of 5 min I(More)
Plastic packaging is the mainstream on microelectronic packaging technology at present. As the continuous requirements for smaller but higher density products, failure and reliability issues on MEMS/MOEMS packaging because of the hygroscopic swelling mismatch stress become more and more serious. To this end, this paper presented the stress monitoring(More)
