Expression of a dominant negative mutant IFNgammaR1 in murine SCK and K1735 tumor cells rendered them relatively unresponsive to IFNgamma in vitro and more tumorigenic and less responsive to IL-12 therapy in vivo. IL-12 induced histologic evidence of ischemic damage only in IFNgamma-responsive tumors, and in vivo Matrigel vascularization assays revealed(More)
SUMMARY We report the development of aseptic meningitis in 3 patients with aneurysms treated with hydrogel-coated coils. Patients presented with febrile meningeal syndromes during the 24 hours following the procedures and responded to corticosteroids. One of them developed delayed hydrocephalus that required treatment with a ventriculoperitoneal shunt.(More)
AIMS To evaluate the caveolin-1 status of invasive ductal carcinoma and its correlation with other important parameters of breast carcinogenesis. Caveolin-1, the main structural protein of caveolae, is involved in the regulation of several intracellular signalling pathways and also functions as a tumour suppressor in breast carcinogenesis. METHODS AND(More)
An auxiliary factor of mammalian multi-aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases, p43, is thought to be a precursor of endothelial monocyte-activating polypeptide II (EMAP II) that triggers proinflammation in leukocytes and macrophages. In the present work, however, we have shown that p43 itself is specifically secreted from intact mammalian cells, while EMAP II is(More)
Polypyrimidine tract-binding protein (PTB) is involved in pre-mRNA splicing and internal ribosomal entry site (IRES)-dependent translation. In order to identify cellular protein(s) interacting with PTB, we performed a yeast two-hybrid screening. Heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein L (hnRNP L) was identified as a PTB-binding protein. The interaction(More)
We present a measurement of the W-boson mass using 200 pb{-1} of data collected in pp[over ] collisions at sqrt[s]=1.96 TeV by the CDF II detector at run II of the Fermilab Tevatron. With a sample of 63 964 W-->enu candidates and 51 128 W-->munu candidates, we measure M_{W}=80 413+/-34{stat}+/-34{syst}=80,413+/-48 MeV/c;{2}. This is the most precise single(More)
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS Since gastric adenomas are precancerous lesions, polypectomy is necessary. However, there have been no reports suggesting factors capable of predicting malignant transformation of gastric adenomas removed by endoscopic snare polypectomy (ESP) or endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) in Korea, a country in which gastric cancer is a(More)
AIM To present the clinical and radiological follow-up results of coil embolization using the Enterprise stent for intracranial saccular aneurysms. MATERIALS AND METHODS The clinical and morphological outcomes of 261 consecutive patients with a total of 289 aneurysms that were treated with a stent-protected coiling technique using the Enterprise stent(More)
BACKGROUND Patients undergoing orthognathic surgery are at high risk of developing emergence agitation. We hypothesised that a single-dose of dexmedetomidine would reduce emergence agitation in adults with nasotracheal intubation after orthognathic surgery. METHODS Seventy adults (20-45 years old) undergoing orthognathic surgery were randomly assigned to(More)
betaig-h3 is a transforming growth factor-beta-inducible cell adhesion molecule that has four characteristic homologous repeated domains. We made recombinant betaig-h3 proteins, which were highly active in mediating human corneal epithelial (HCE) cell adhesion and spreading. The 2nd and the 4th repeated domains were sufficient to mediate HCE cell adhesion.(More)
