Mast cell-mediated allergic inflammation is involved in many diseases such as asthma, sinusitis, and rheumatoid arthritis. Mast cells induce production of pro-inflammatory cytokines with immune regulatory properties. We investigated the effect of quercetin on the expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines in human mast cell line, HMC-1. HMC-1 cells were(More)
An epidemiological study on diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) was done by analysis of 207 cases collected from the medical records of 6 major general hospitals in Seoul area during the period of 5 years between 1979 and 1984. There was female predominance in the occurrence of DKA (male/female ratio, 0.71) in spite of the male predominance in general prevalence of(More)
Osteoporosis is a common disease among patients undergoing transplantation and a loss of bone mass is usually detected after bone marrow transplantation (BMT), particularly during the immediate post-BMT period. Post-BMT bone loss is primarily related to gonadal dysfunction and immunosuppression. Cytokines, especially interleukin 6, play an important role in(More)
Mast cell-mediated allergic inflammation is involved in many diseases such as asthma, sinusitis, and rheumatoid arthritis. Mast cells induce synthesis and production of pro-inflammatory cytokines including tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, interleukin (IL)-1β and IL-6 with immune regulatory properties. The formulated ethanol extract of Artemisia asiatica Nakai(More)
The three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction of as-built industrial plant models plays an important role in revamping planning, maintenance planning, and preparation for dismantling during the lifecycle of industrial plants. Recently, the 3D reconstruction of existing industrial plants was conducted using laser-scan data to make surveying processes more(More)
Anatomical lesions of hypothalamic area associated with hypodipsic hypernatremia have been reported only rarely. We report here a case of hypodipsic hypernatremia induced by a hypothalamic lesion. A 25-yr-old man, who had been treated with radiation for hypothalamic tumor 5-yr before, was admitted for evaluation of hypernatremia and hypokalemia. He never(More)
In this paper, we build a framework for maximizing the utilization of solar-based harvesting energy in sensor networks. For this goal, we analyze the required power at each relay node and give the queueing framework for the power management. In the simulation, our proposed algorithm shows a superior performance than conventional ones in terms of the PRR(More)
Recently, Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology has attracted much attention in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry. Despite the growing interest in BIM technology, the benefits of BIM have not yet been fully realized during the course of implementation of BIM because of its low adoption rate among architects. Therefore,(More)
