UNLABELLED The fate of 166Ho-chitosan complex, a radiopharmaceutical drug for cancer therapy, was determined by studying its absorption, distribution and excretion in rats and mice. METHODS Holmium-166-chitosan complex [0.75 mg of Ho(NO3)3 x 5H2O and 1 mg chitosan/ head] was administered intrahepatically to male rats. Radioactive concentrations in blood,(More)
The peripheral benzodiazepine receptor (PBR) has been known to have many functions such as a role in cell proliferation, cell differentiation, steroidogenesis, calcium flow, cellular respiration, cellular immunity, malignancy, and apoptosis. However, the presence of PBR has not been examined in mesenchymal stem cells. In this study, we demonstrated the(More)
BACKGROUND Children with acute liver failure (ALF) caused by hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) may be at risk of undergoing unnecessary liver transplantation (LT). The aim of this study was to compare the characteristics of ALF caused by HLH with those of ALF of unknown etiology in children. METHODS The clinical features and laboratory findings for(More)
The safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of DW-116, a new fluoroquinolone with a broad antibacterial spectrum, were evaluated in healthy male subjects after administration of single oral doses of 100, 200, 300 and 800 mg and after administration of multiple oral doses of 300 or 400 mg, respectively, for 7 days. DW-116 was well tolerated.(More)
166Holmium (166Ho) is a radionuclide of rare earth chemical and is known to have antitumor activity. Several chemicals were complexed with 166Ho to facilitate the transport of this radionuclide to the site of action. In this study, 166Ho was complexed to chitosan (Chit) which decreases the distribution of Ho into other tissues when applied intrahepatically.(More)
Fever is the most common complaint among children brought into the emergency department (ED). 'Fever phobia' is a descriptive term for an unrealistic concern about the consequences of fever. 'Fever phobia' is prevalent among parents and even healthcare providers, worldwide. The aim of this study was to determine the implications of fever-phobic ideas in(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to investigate the association between increased weight status (IWS), a weight for age/sex at greater than the 95th percentile, and fall-induced intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) in children aged 4 years or younger. METHODS In 7072 children aged 4 years or younger with head injury who visited a tertiary care hospital(More)
Hereditary fructose intolerance is an autosomal recessive disorder that is caused by a deficiency in fructose-1-phosphate aldolase (Aldolase B). Children can present with hypoglycemia, jaundice, elevated liver enzymes and hepatomegaly after intake of dietary fructose. Long-term intake of fructose in undiagnosed patients can result in hepatic failure or(More)
We aim to derive a new sufficient condition for successful joint support set reconstruction in the multiple measurement vectors (MMV) model [1]. Our MMV model consists of S multiple measurement vectors, S multiple K sparse vectors each having the same support set, and a measurement matrix. Our work here aims to give how many measurements per measurement(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate whether point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) for intussusception screening streamlines the workflow of clinically nonspecific intussusception (CNI), an intussusception presenting with only 1 manifestation of the classic triad, and/or vomiting. METHODS We reviewed 274 consecutive children with intussusception,(More)
