The idea that human bocavirus (hBoV) infection possibly plays a role in gastroenteritis has been suggested because of the frequent manifestation of gastrointestinal symptoms. The purpose of this study was to investigate the prevalence of hBoV in children with gastroenteritis. We studied the etiologic agents in 962 children hospitalized with gastroenteritis.(More)
We have identified a novel chordin-like protein, CHL2, which is structurally most homologous to CHL/neuralin/ventroptin. When injected into Xenopus embryos, CHL2 RNA induced a secondary axis. Recombinant CHL2 protein interacted directly with BMPs in a competitive manner to prevent binding to the type I BMP receptor ectodomain, and inhibited BMP-dependent(More)
Breast and leg meat patties, prepared from turkeys fed diets containing 25, 200, 400 or 600 IU of dl-a-tocopheryl acetate (TA) per kg diet, were irradiated at 0 or 2.5 kGy with vacuum or loose packaging. The effects of dietary TA on storage stability and production of volatiles in irradiated raw turkey meat were determined. Dietary TA at . 200 IU/kg(More)
Leukemia cutis is the cutaneous involvement of leukemic neoplastic cells. It is an uncommon feature of systemic leukemia, and is associated with a poor prognosis. A 20-year-old man presented with a solitary, 2 cm domeshaped, firm, erythematous nodule on the right medial malleolus that was present for 3 months. The patient had a history of venous catheter(More)
Human astrovirus (HAstV) is the second most important cause of viral diarrhea and acute gastroenteritis in infants under five. However, determination of the infectivity of clinical isolates is difficult, and the replication cycle of HAstV is not yet fully understood. In this study, it was attempted to detect negative-sense (−)RNAs generated during the(More)
An epidemiologic study was performed to determine the genetic variability of rotaviruses in Seoul, South Korea. In 3,174 stool specimens from children with acute diarrhea at five referral hospitals, 571 (18%) possessed the antigen of group A rotavirus detectable by ELISA--10.8% in 2004 and 28.1% in 2005. VP7 genotyping revealed that the G3 type was found in(More)
Sarcoidosis is a systemic inflammatory disease of an unknown origin and it is characterized by the presence of noncaseating epitheloid cell granulomas in multiple organs. Herein we report on a case of cutaneous and pulmonary sarcoidosis that was associated with interferon alpha treatment for hepatitis C. A 39-year-old man, a former intravenous drug user,(More)
