Thirty-eight obese Korean children (21 boys, 17 girls), whose ages were between 9 and 15, were divided into either the intervention group (19 obese children: BMI>95P) or the age- and sex-matched obese control group. The intervention group performed an intensive exercise program under the supervision of educated instructors for 12 weeks (90 minutes/day, two(More)
We experienced an unusual case of cardiac tamponde caused by a rupture of the coronary arteriovenous aneurysm in a 54-year-old woman. The patient was suffered from sudden chest pain and syncope, and was initially managed by pericardiocentesis following an echocardiogram which revealed a massive pericardial effusion with signs of cardiac tamponade. She was(More)
Growth hormone (GH) treatment has been increasingly widely used for children with GH deficiencies as the survival rate of pediatric patients with malignancies has increased. Both GH and insulin-like growth factor-I have mitogenic and antiapoptotic activity, prompting concern that GH treatment may be associated with tumor development. In this review, the(More)
Carrot (Daucus carota L.) suspension cells are known to exhibit acclimation responses, such as fatty acid catabolism, during the first 5 days of carbon starvation. The present study shows that cells start to die once starvation is prolonged beyond this period. We investigated the signals involved in this transition from acclimation to cell death.(More)
Spot urinary albumin to creatinine ratio (ACR) measurement has been suggested as a surrogate to 24-hr urine collection for the assessment of microalbuminuria, and cystatin C (cysC) is known as an advantageous marker for renal function. The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical values of spot urinary ACR and serum cysC for the assessment of diabetic(More)
IGF-binding protein-3 (IGFBP-3) is the major circulating carrier protein for IGF, and also acts as a potent antiproliferative agent in various cell types. Recently, IGFBP-3 was reported to mediate high glucose-induced apoptosis in mesangial cells and podocytes. In this study, we investigated the role of IGFBP-3 in high glucose-induced apoptosis in proximal(More)
PURPOSE Sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) modulates the availability of biologically active free sex hormones. The regulatory role of SHBG might be important in the relationship between hormone levels and the modification of lipid profiles in girls with precocious puberty. However, few studies have evaluated the relationship of SHBG, free estradiol index(More)
