BACKGROUND/AIMS The aim of this study was to evaluate the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) during telbivudine (LdT) versus entecavir (ETV) treatment in chronic hepatitis B (CHB) patients with underlying comorbidities such as diabetes mellitus (DM), hypertension, and cirrhosis. METHODS From 2010 to 2012, 116 CHB patients treated with LdT and 578(More)
Since carbapenems and cephalosporins have been suggested to induce convulsive side effects through an inhibitory action on the central gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-mediated inhibitory transmission, the present study evaluated the convulsive activity of a new carbapenem antibiotic (1R,5S,6S)-6[(R)-1-hydroxyethyl]-2-[(3S,5S)-5(S-methyl-4thiomorpholin (More)
Most guidelines suggest combination therapy including nucleoside and nucleotide analogues for the treatment of chronic hepatitis B (CHB) with multidrug resistance (MD-R). However, long-term combination treatment can evoke high costs and safety problems. Therefore, we investigated the efficacy of tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF) mono-rescue therapy for(More)
We compared the viral suppressive efficacy of tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF) mono-rescue therapy (TDF group) and TDF plus entecavir (ETV) combination-rescue therapy (TDF + ETV group) in chronic hepatitis B (CHB) patients with lamivudine resistance and entecavir resistance. One hundred and thirty-three CHB patients with lamivudine and entecavir(More)
AIM To investigate the effect of bile acid on the expression of histidine decarboxylase (HDC), which is a major enzyme involved in histamine production, and gene expression of gastric transcription factors upon cooperative activation. METHODS HDC expression was examined by immunohistochemistry, reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction, and promoter(More)
