BACKGROUND We examined the effect of atorvastatin on the expression of COX-2 in peripheral blood monocytes from patients with early stage of acute myocardial infarction (AMI), and the plasma C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations were also examined. METHODS Patients with AMI (n = 40) and with stable coronary heart disease (CHD; n = 18) were registered,(More)
bottom panels). These results thus confirm that patient 1, her mother, and patient 2 are heterozygous for the novel HK allele, fully explaining the previous Southern, multiplex-PCR, and pedigree analysis (Fig. 1D) results. Because the HK allele contains neither deletion nor triplication, carriers of this novel allele are unlikely to suffer any deleterious(More)
This report aims to describe a paranasal flap technique for reconstruction of lower eyelid retraction and ectropion. After the contracture of the lower eyelid skin or conjunctiva had been thoroughly released, the ipsilateral upper pedicle paranasal flap was designed according to the size of the lower eyelid skin wound. After dissection of the flap, the(More)
To investigate whether single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the P450 oxidoreductase (POR) gene were correlated with interindividual variations in cytochrome P450 (CYP) 2B6 activity. Thirty-six healthy volunteers who tested CYP2B6 and POR polymorphisms were enrolled in the study. CYP2B6 activity was measured by bupropion hydroxylation with LC/MS/MS. The(More)
Hyperpigmentation frequently occurs in human skin autografts resulting in an unsatisfactory appearance. This study aimed to elucidate the role of melanocortin-1 receptor in the hyperpigmentation process of skin autografts by analyzing the expression of melanocortin-1 receptor. The data were correlated with the amount of melanin in autografted human skin and(More)
