Precise topographic localization, predominance in males mostly of Asian origin, and existence of some familial cases suggest a genetic background for monomelic amyotrophy. To identify susceptibility genes for monomelic amyotrophy, we performed whole-exome sequencing of four unrelated patients with monomelic amyotrophy and detected a total of 45 novel(More)
Height is a highly heritable trait that involves multiple genetic loci. To identify causal variants that influence stature, we sequenced whole exomes of four children with idiopathic short stature. Ninety-five nonsynonymous single-nucleotide polymorphisms (nsSNPs) were selected as potential candidate variants. We performed association analysis in 740 cohort(More)
Genomic changes frequently occur in cancer cells during tumorigenesis from normal cells. Using the Illumina Human NS-12 single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) chip to screen for gene copy number changes in primary hepatocellular carcinomas (HCCs), we initially detected amplification of 35 genes from four genomic regions (1q21-41, 6p21.2-24.1, 7p13 and(More)
Kawasaki disease (KD) is a rare disease that occurs predominantly in infants and young children. To identify KD susceptibility genes and to develop a diagnostic test, a specific therapy, or prevention method, collecting KD patients' clinical and genomic data is one of the major issues. For this purpose, Kawasaki Disease Database (KDD) was developed based on(More)
BACKGROUND Although both pregabalin and gabapentin are known to be useful for treating lumbar radiating pain and reducing the incidence of surgery, the oral corticosteroids sometimes offer a dramatic effect on severe radiating pain despite the lack of scientific evidence. METHODS A total of 54 patients were enrolled among 703 patients who complained of(More)
Despite the advantages of using photodynamic therapy (PDT) for the treatment of head and neck tumors, it can only be used to treat early stage flat lesions due to the limited tissue penetration ability of the visible light. Here, we developed near-infrared (NIR) excitable upconversion nanoparticle (UCN) based PDT agent that can specifically target(More)
provided the original work is properly cited. CC Post-intubation throat pain is a common complaint that is caused by focal ischemia, damage to the laryngeal mucosa, or edema. However, if the laryngeal symptoms persist after 72 h, vocal cord paralysis, the formation of granulation tissue, or ulcers can occur [1]. Most vocal cord ulcers that are caused by(More)
As the growth of the Internet has given consumers an access to unprecedented amounts of digital contents from almost anywhere, thanks to a variety of smart devices, it has raised concerns about the safety of personal data with current digital content transaction model when purchasing the online digital contents. Smartphone use is increasing rapidly and it(More)
