BACKGROUND & AIMS Survival of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is determined by hepatic function and tumour extent. Recently, a new Model to Estimate Survival in Ambulatory HCC patients (MESIAH) was proposed to predict overall survival in ambulatory HCC patients. This study aimed to evaluate the prognostic performance of the MESIAH score in an(More)
Granulocyte macrophage-colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF) has immuno-stimulatory effects. We hypothesized that GM-CSF plays an important role both in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)- and hemorrhage-induced acute lung injury (ALI). We also postulated that GM-CSF augments LPS-induced inflammation by priming neutrophils. ALI was induced in GM-CSF-/- or control C57BL(More)
This study quantitatively investigated the postoperative effects of radiofrequency (RF) application on the normal dermal extracellular matrix (ECM) of in vivo rabbits. Postoperative effects were evaluated by histology and atomic force microscopy analysis of dermal tissues treated using three RF energy levels (10 ~ 30 W) and either a single- or multiple-pass(More)
