BACKGROUND Information on breast cancer risk can be obtained both from the histological appearance of the breast epithelium in biopsy specimens and from the pattern of parenchymal densities in the breast revealed by mammography. It is not understood, however, how parenchymal densities influence breast cancer risk or whether these densities are associated(More)
There is now a large amount of evidence indicating that women with extensive areas of mammographic densities are 4-6 times more likely to develop breast cancer than those with little or no density in the mammogram. We have examined one potential biological explanation for this association by estimating the incidence of various histological types of benign(More)
AIM To investigate the role of glucose transporter 1 (GLUT1) expression in colorectal carcinogenesis and evaluate the correlation with clinicopathological parameters and apoptosis-activating factor-1 (Apaf-1) expression in colorectal adenocarcinomas. METHODS We used tissue microarrays consisting of 26 normal mucosa, 50 adenomas, 515 adenocarcinomas, and(More)
An unusual class 1 integron was identified that carries an IS26-disrupted aadA1 gene cassette (designated as 'integron-IS26') in an imipenem-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii (IRAB) outbreak strain. DNA sequencing revealed that integron-IS26 contained two gene cassettes, the aac(6')-Im cassette and a peculiar aadA1 cassette that was disrupted by IS26(More)
BACKGROUND Group A rotavirus is a major cause of severe diarrhea in children throughout the world. For the proper management of rotavirus infections, it will be helpful to know their clinical characteristics according to the G and P genotypes of the infecting virus. METHODS The diarrheal stool specimens from patients hospitalized in Chosun University(More)
