BACKGROUND/AIMS Bismuth-based quadruple therapy for second-line eradication treatment achieves the eradication rate ranging from 70% to 81% due to antimicrobial resistance and poor compliance. The aim of this study was to compare the eradication rate of levofloxacin-based triple therapy with that of bismuth-based quadruple therapy in second-line(More)
Nutrition has been found to be associated with cognitive impairment, but it has not been established whether these associations are present solely in later life or whether they are present in younger age as well. HC is a good indicator of brain development and the most sensitive anthropometric indicator of prolonged malnutrition during early life. This(More)
We describe a 58-year-old woman who was incidentally found to have gastric and colonic polyposis, hypoalbuminemia, cutaneous hyperpigmentation and onychodystrophy (Cronkhite-Canada syndrome). Histology of polyps from the stomach showed features of juvenile or retention type (hamartomatous) polyps with Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection. The large(More)
Evolution of IT and computer has made e-books popular day by day. In this paper, we are interested in searching a word in e-books. However, it is impossible to search a word in digitized e-books if they consist of image files such as JPG and PDF. Our solution to this problem is to transform the image file based e-books into text files based e-books to(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS It is not clear whether the anti-secretory therapy should be continued for symptomatic relief and ulcer healing before or after the eradication of H. pylori in patients with peptic ulcer disease. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of additional anti-secretory therapy before or after H. pylori eradication in peptic ulcer(More)
FA (Fanconi's Anemia) is an autosomal recessive disorder that is characterized by pancytopenia with bone marrow hypoplasia, diverse congenital abnormalities and an increased predisposition towards malignancy. The mainstay of the treatment for these cancers has been surgery, because of the hypersensitive reactions of FA patients to DNA cross- linking agents(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The clinical significance of serum CA 125 levels in patients with chronic liver disease has not been widely appreciated in relation to the severity of the disease. We examined serum CA 125 levels in patients with chronic liver disease according to the severity of liver disease and the presence of ascites. METHODS Fasting serum CA 125(More)
Therapeutic hypothermia (TH) is potently neuroprotective in experimental stroke models and clinically proven to improve outcomes in patients after cardiac arrest and neonatal encephalopathy because of hypoxia-ischemia. Preclinical studies show that TH is far more beneficial and consistent in temporary middle cerebral artery (MCA) occlusion than in permanent(More)
Adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) is common in the salivary glands but rare in the esophagus. Routine esophagogastroscopy performed in a 54-year-old woman as part of a medical check-up revealed a submucosal tumor (1.5x1.0 cm) at the mid-esophagus. Endoscopic ultrasonography revealed a lesion with mixed echogenicity in the submucosal layer. The submucosal mass(More)
