BACKGROUND The ciliary epithelial cells in the paranasal sinuses produce nasal nitric oxide (NO) continuously and plays a variety of roles in the paranasal sinuses. The purpose of this study was to assess whether we can use the levels of nasal NO (nNO) and exhaled NO (eNO) as a tool for evaluation in chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) with nasal polyp patients.(More)
OBJECTIVE Prophylactic central neck dissection (CND) for papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) remains controversial. The aim of this study was to evaluate the patterns and predictive factors of central lymph node metastasis in cases of PTC that were clinically determined to be node negative. METHODS We studied 485 patients who have unilateral PTC without(More)
In this study, we used an in vitro coculture system to determine which virulence factor from Pasteurella haemolytica Al was responsible for augmenting bovine polymorphonuclear neutrophil (PMN)-mediated killing of bovine pulmonary artery endothelial cells (BPAEC). A 5"Cr release cytotoxicity assay was used as a measure of BPAEC killing. The mechanisms(More)
In this study, we determined the effects of hederagenin isolated from Akebia quinata fruit on alcohol-induced hepatotoxicity in rats. Specifically, we investigated the hepatoprotective, anti-inflammatory, and anti-apoptotic effects of hederagenin, as well as the role of AKT and mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) signaling pathways in ethanol-induced(More)
In this study, we investigated the effects of Akebia quinata ethanol extract (AE), Akebia quinata sikhye (AS), and Akebia quinata water extract (AW) on alcohol-induced liver injury in rats. The hepatoprotective, anti-inflammatory, anti-apoptotic, and antioxidant effects of AE, AS, and AW were examined. Experimental animals were randomly divided into five(More)
The present study evaluated the effects of a calcium (Ca) supplement derived from Gallus gallus domesticus (GD) on breaking force, microarchitecture, osteogenic differentiation and osteoclast differentiation factor expression in vivo in Ca-deficient ovariectomized (OVX) rats. One percent of Ca supplement significantly improved Ca content and bone strength(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to determine the optimal extent of prophylactic central neck dissection (pCND) in papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). MATERIALS AND METHODS We studied 384 patients with clinically node-negative unilateral PTC who had undergone total thyroidectomy with pCND. Of these, 169 patients underwent unilateral pCND, and 215,(More)
