BACKGROUND The contribution of the metal components of particulate pollutants to acute respiratory effects has not been adequately evaluated. Moreover, little is known about the effects of genetic polymorphisms of xenobiotic metabolism on pulmonary function. OBJECTIVES This study was conducted to assess lung function decrement associated with metal(More)
OBJECTIVE This study was undertaken to determine the effect of hypoxia inducible factor (HIF)-1α on the cell death, autophagy, and invasion of trophoblasts. METHODS To understand the effect of HIF-1α, we inhibited HIF-1α using siRNA under normoxia and hypoxia conditions. Invasion assay and zymography were performed to determine changes in the invasion(More)
Primary cardiac lymphoma (PCL) is a rare disease entity with only a few reported cases in Korea. In this paper, we report a case of PCL in a 59-year-old man presenting with chest pain. Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma was diagnosed through a cardiac catheterization-assisted percutaneous endomyocardial biopsy, and there was no evidence of extracardiac(More)
In addition to their differentiation potential, self-renewal capability is an important characteristic of stem cells. The limited self-renewal activity of mesenchymal stem cells is the greatest obstacle to the application of stem cell therapy in regenerative medicine. The human TERT gene enhances the self-renewal of MSCs, but the mechanism of self-renewal(More)
Complicated malaria is mainly caused by Plasmodium falciparum, but, increasingly, Plasmodium vivax is also being reported as a cause. Since the reemergence of indigenous vivax malaria in 1993, cases of severe malaria have been steadily reported in Korea. Herein, we report a case of vivax malaria complicated by adult respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) that(More)
Sauchinone has been known to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. We determined whether sauchinone is beneficial in regional myocardial ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury. Rats were subjected to 20 min occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery, followed by 2 hr reperfusion. Sauchinone (10 mg/kg) was administered intraperitoneally(More)
A clinically apparent thromboembolism associated with arthroscopic shoulder surgery is extremely rare. We report a case of a fatal pulmonary embolism developed after an arthroscopic rotator cuff repair in a 45-year-old woman. On the first day after surgery, she experienced syncope that was complicated by cardiac arrest. No hemostasis impairment was noted. A(More)
A 68-year-old woman visited the emergency department twice with symptoms of acute heart failure including shortness of breath, general weakness, and abdominal distension. Laboratory findings showed extremely low level of serum hemoglobin at 1.4 g/dL. Echocardiographic examination demonstrated dilated left ventricular cavity with systolic dysfunction and(More)
Placenta-derived stem cells (PDSCs) isolated from human full-term placentas are able to grow through self-renewal and differentiate into multiple lineages. PDSCs have been reported to have a potential for hepatogenic differentiation and therapeutic effects in an animal model of liver injury. However, the frequency of the hepatogenic differentiation of PDSCs(More)
