This study was conducted to examine the pathophysiologic mechanisms of long-term adverse effects by neonatal maternal separation on neurobehaviors of the offspring. Sprague-Dawley pups were separated from dam daily for 180min during the first 2 weeks of life (MS) or undisturbed (NH), and subjected to behavioral sessions for ambulatory activity, forced swim,(More)
The recent emergence of multiple avian influenza A subtypes that cause human disease (i.e., H5N1, H9N2 and H7N7), coupled with the fear that one of these strains might precipitate a new pandemic, underscores the need to develop new technological approaches to immunization which elicit protective immune responses against multiple subtypes of influenza A. In(More)
The Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) has a wide spectrum of bacteria recognition receptors that may be involved in the signaling of the immune responses in the prostate. A few association studies have assessed the relationship between the risk of prostate cancer (PC) and the polymorphism in the TLR4 gene in European-ancestry populations. To evaluate the(More)
"Skills and Expertise" is a data-driven feature on LinkedIn, the world's largest professional online social network, which allows members to tag themselves with topics representing their areas of expertise. In this work, we present our experiences developing this large-scale topic extraction pipeline, which includes constructing a folksonomy of skills and(More)
OBJECTIVE Solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is a very rare tumor. The purpose of this study is to determine the MR imaging features of SFT in the intracranial and extracranial head and neck regions. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed six MR images and two CT images of six histologically proven cases of SFT that occurred in four men and two(More)
'Solid-phase' PEGylation, in which a conjugation reaction attaches proteins to a solid matrix, has distinct advantages over the conventional, solution-phase process. We report a case study in which recombinant interferon (rhIFN) alpha-2a was adsorbed to a cation-exchange resin and PEGylated at the N-terminus by 5, 10, and 20 kDa mPEG aldehydes through(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate characteristic computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging findings of granulocytic sarcomas of the head and neck. METHODS The CT (n=11) and MR (n=1) images obtained from 11 patients (7 males and 4 females; mean age, 23.5 yr; age range, 1 to 69 yr) with histologically-proven granulocytic sarcomas of the head and(More)
Self-expandable metallic stent (SEMS) for malignant colorectal obstruction is widely used in palliative treatment and as an alternative to surgery. The aims of this study are to evaluate the effectiveness of stent placement for palliative treatment and to identify the predictive factors associated with stent occlusion. A retrospective analysis was performed(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the gas generated from the transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) and transurethral resection of bladder (TURB) tumor. METHODS Thirty-six smoke samples were collected from a continuous irrigation suction system during the TURP and the TURB. Then, they were subdivided into 2 groups: the group I (n = 18; gases generated from the(More)
BACKGROUND Increase in intracranial pressure (ICP) is one of the physiologic changes during laparoscopic surgery, which is known to be associated with positional changes. Changes of ICP can be measured directly by invasive method, but ultrasonographic measurement of optic nerve sheath diameter (ONSD) is known to be a rapidly applicable technique for(More)
