Little data are available regarding the influence of psychiatric factors on chronic dysphagia after anterior cervical spine surgery. The purpose of this study was to identify associations between psychiatric factors and the development of chronic dysphagia in patients after anterior cervical spine surgery. The authors prospectively examined 72 patients with(More)
Mucolipidosis II (ML II) or inclusion cell disease (I-cell disease) is a rarely occurring autosomal recessive lysosomal enzyme-targeting disease. This disease is usually found to occur in individuals aged between 6 and 12 months, with a clinical phenotype resembling that of Hurler syndrome and radiological findings resembling those of dysostosis multiplex.(More)
We present a light-switchable gene expression system for both inducible and switchable control of gene expression at a single cell level in Escherichia coli using a previously constructed light-sensing system. The λ cI repressor gene with an LVA degradation tag was expressed under the control of the ompC promoter on the chromosome. The green fluorescent(More)
Frequent relapse and spreading of tumors during radiotherapy are principal obstacles to treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). In this study, we aimed to investigate how macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) which is expressed at high levels in metastatic and primary lung cancer cells could regulate NSCLC metastasis in response to ionizing(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS (18)F-Fluorodeoxyglucose positron-emission tomography ((18)F-FDG PET) has been used to assess the biological behavior of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). In this study, we investigated the usefulness of (18)F-FDG PET for predicting tumor progression and survival in patients with intermediate Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer (BCLC)(More)
A new type of constitutive model and its computational implementation procedure for the simulation of a trabecular bone are proposed in the present study. A yield surface-independent Frank-Brockman elasto-viscoplastic model is introduced to express the nonlinear material behavior such as softening beyond yield point, plateau, and densification under(More)
Abstract: During the last decade, the demand for natural gas has steadily increased for the prevention of environmental pollution. For this reason, many liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers have been manufactured. Since one of the most important issues in the design of LNG carriers is to guarantee structural safety, the use of low-temperature materials is(More)

STUDY DESIGN This is a prospective study design. OBJECTIVE To test the interobserver and intraobserver reliabilities of 5 specific measures of global cervical sagittal alignment in patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS), and to suggest a better means of measuring cervical sagittal alignment. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA The intraobserver and(More)
