INTRODUCTION Activation of MET, either by increased gene copy number (GCN) or mutation, has been detected in various cancers. We investigate the clinicopathologic features of MET gene copy in nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS Tumor tissues were obtained from 180 resected NSCLCs, including 97 squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs) and 72 adenocarcinomas.(More)
BACKGROUND Atypia or follicular lesions of undetermined significance (AUS/FLUS) is a broad cytological category in the Bethesda system for classifying thyroid cytology. This study investigated the diagnostic accuracy of ultrasound (US) analysis of thyroid nodules with AUS/FLUS. PATIENTS AND METHODS Of 5062 subjects with nodules subjected to fine-needle(More)
Human CD99 (MIC2) is a 32 kDa cell surface protein and its encoding gene is localized to the pseudoautosomal regions of both Xp and Yp chromosomes. Although sequences of several genes such as human PBDX and MIC2R are known to be related to that of CD99, the murine counterpart of CD99 has not been reported. Here we have identified a novel CD99 mouse paralog,(More)
Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) occurs more frequently in Europe and North America than in Asia but its prevalence is now increasing in many Asian countries. Many reasons have been given for the lower prevalence of GORD in Asia. Low dietary fat and genetically determined factors, such as body mass index and maximal acid output, may be important.(More)
BACKGROUND Adenocarcinoma of the esophagus has been reported to be increasing in incidence in a number of regions throughout the world, while the incidence of squamous cell carcinoma (SCCA) of the esophagus is mostly stable or decreasing. To evaluate the increasing tendency of adenocarcinoma of the esophagus. METHODS We studied retrospectively the records(More)
Rifaximin has been reported to be effective for the treatment of hepatic encephalopathy (HE) in Europe. However, it is unknown whether Rifaximin is effective for the treatment of HE in Koreans, therefore we conducted a open-label prospective randomized study to evaluate the efficacy of rifaximin versus lactulose in Korean patients. Fifty-four patients with(More)
BACKGROUND In augmentation rhinoplasty, delayed morphologic changes are often observed with silicone implants, despite them being known as a safe implant material. The purpose of this study was to identify the cause and time course of delayed shape changes of silicone implants, through the long-term evaluation of inserted implants and their surrounding(More)
Despite numerous reports on MHC class II expression by T cells from a wide spectrum of mammalian species including humans, the biological relevance of this phenomenon has never been tested with appropriately designed animal models. To address this issue, we developed mouse models in which immature thymocytes are the only positively selecting(More)
Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is one of the most malignant tumors in urology, and due to its insidious onset patients frequently have advanced disease at the time of clinical presentation. Thus, early detection is crucial in management of RCC. To identify tumor specific proteins of RCC, we employed proteomic analysis. We prepared proteins from conventional RCC(More)
Regulatory T (Treg) cells act as terminators of T cell immuniy during acute phase of viral infection; however, their role and suppressive mechanism in chronic viral infection are not completely understood. In this study, we compared the phenotype and function of Treg cells during acute or chronic infection with lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus. Chronic(More)
