While pleural effusion in multiple myeloma is relatively infrequent, myelomatous pleural effusion is extremely rare. We experienced a 61-year-old woman with IgD-lambda multiple myeloma and pleural effusion. The diagnosis was made originally by pleural biopsy, pleural fluid cytology and immunoelectropheresis of pleural fluid. Transient improvement of the(More)
Pathologic findings of scrub typhus have been characterized by vasculitis of the microvasculature of the involved organ resulting from a direct invasion by Orientia tsutsugamushi. We experienced a case of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) associated with scrub typhus. The case was proven by eschar and high titer of serum IgM antibody (positive at(More)
In vitro models for neurologic diseases have been highly demanded for better understanding of pathology and strategies for treatment of the diseases such as Alzheimer's disease (AD); however, there have been limits in mimicking in vivo microenvironment on in vitro system. Here, we have developed a microfluidic chip based on three-dimensional (3D)(More)
In our comparative study of L1 consensus primers with E6 type-specific primers for detection of human papillomavirus (HPVs) by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in 35 cases of cervical neoplasia, the detection rate by E6 primers (54%; 19/35) was significantly higher than that by L1 primers (25%; 9/35) (p < 0.01). And all specimens HPV-positive with L1 primers(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy of antibiotic prophylaxis in patients undergoing autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) for multiple myeloma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Among 232 ASCT cases performed at the Asan Medical Center, 114 cases underwent treatment with ciprofloxacin, fluconazole, and acyclovir (between January 2001 and(More)
Previous studies have demonstrated that enalapril and verapamil seem to attenuate the cyclosporine nephrotoxicity. However, the mechanisms have not been completely understood, especially on molecular events. The aim of this study was to examine the effect of individual or combined treatment on osteopontin, TGF-beta, endothelin-1 and procollagen alpha 1(I)(More)
The main aspect in Wireless Sensor Network is to improve the overall performance of the network, to reduce the battery usage, and also to enrich all QoS by using some protocols. Now a it is seen that a single network that is deployed have to handle numerous with varied QoS requirements applications. These aspects can be achieved by using multi-stack(More)
