Onychomycosis is usually caused by dermatophytes, but some nondermatophytic molds and yeasts are also associated with invasion of nails. The genus Chaetomium is a dematiaceous nondermatophytic mold found in soil and plant debris as a saprophytic fungus. We report the first Korean case of onychomycosis caused by Chaetomium globosum in a 35-year-old male. The(More)
We can find many valuable relations from a text document. Extracting these relations from a document plays an important role in Information Extraction. However, it is not easy to achieve relation extraction task from a large corpus. This is due to the many kinds of relation and it’s appearing patterns. To solve these difficulties, we suggest a method which(More)
Fonsecaea strains isolated from chromoblastomycosis patients in Korea and morphologically identified as Fonsecaea pedrosoi were re-evaluated for typing by sequencing the ribosomal internal transcribed spacer (ITS) regions. The ITS sequences of five Korean isolates and two reference strains were determined and then aligned with those of 11 related strains(More)
The pH-dependent structures of the ferritin shell (apoferritin, 24-mer) and the ferrihydrite core, under physiological conditions that permit enzymatic activity, were investigated by synchrotron small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS). The solution structure of apoferritin was found to be nearly identical to the crystal structure. The shell thickness and hollow(More)
Structural characteristics of various conformational states of porcine pepsin in solution under different pH conditions were investigated in terms of size and shape by small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS). Low-resolution structural models of porcine pepsin were reconstructed from SAXS data, which were made inside the search volume of maximum dimension(More)
[Purpose] This study examined the effects of an ankle-foot orthosis worn during balance training on lower limb muscle activity and static balance of chronic stroke patients. [Subjects] The subjects were twenty-five inpatients receiving physical therapy for chronic stroke. [Methods] The chronic stroke patients were divided into two groups: thirteen patients(More)
Onychomycosis is usually caused by dermatophytes, but some nondermatophytic molds and yeasts are also associated with invasion of nails. Scopulariopsis brevicaulis is a nondermatophytic mold found in soil as a saprophyte. We report two cases of onychomycosis caused by S. brevicaulis in a 48-year-old male and a 79-year-old female. The two patients presented(More)
[Purpose] The purpose of the present study was to examine and compare the effects of proprioceptive training accompanied by motor imagery training and general proprioceptive training on the balance of stroke patients. [Subjects and Methods] Thirty-six stroke patients were randomly assigned to either an experimental group of 18 patients or a control group of(More)
