BACKGROUND The studies on cancer-stem-cells (CSCs) have attracted so much attention in recent years as possible therapeutic implications. This study was carried out to investigate the gene expression profile of CSCs in human lung adenocarcinoma A549 cells. RESULTS We isolated CSCs from A549 cell line of which side population (SP) phenotype revealed(More)
BACKGROUND Compared with coronary computed tomographic angiography (CCTA), the coronary artery calcium score (CACS) may be limited in predicting adverse cardiovascular events in asymptomatic diabetic patients. METHODS We evaluated the predictive value of CACS for obstructive coronary plaques (OCPs) assessed by CCTA in 328 consecutive asymptomatic patients(More)
BACKGROUND Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is associated with increased risks of diabetes and coronary artery disease (CAD). Despite the controversial inclusion of established diabetes in MetS, the association between MetS and CAD according to diabetes status has not been elucidated in the Asian population. METHODS We evaluated the association between MetS and(More)
BACKGROUND Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a major cardiovascular complication in diabetic patients. Despite the significant association between obesity and diabetes, the majority of the diabetic subjects are not obese in an Asian population. This study evaluated the association between obesity and coronary artery disease (CAD) according to the diabetes(More)
This longitudinal study employed the Infant Behavior Questionnaire-Revised in assessing temperamental differences between infants at 6 months (n = 114 US, 184 Dutch) and 12 months (n = 92 US, 172 Dutch) from the United States of America and The Netherlands. Main effects indicated that Dutch infants were rated higher on the Orienting/Regulatory Capacity(More)
Analysis of covariance selection models is a useful multivariate method to analyze the co-variance structure of a multivariate normal distribution. It is used to reveal cause-and-effect relationships. In the present paper we review the theory and study numerically how the stepwise procedure of covariance selection works in actual data analysis. Then we try(More)
The primary objective of this study was to compare the pharmacokinetics of a new anti-human immunodeficiency virus agent 1-(2-amino-pyridin-4-ylmethyl)-6-(3,5-dimethylbenzoyl)-5-isopropyl-1H-pyrimidine-2,4-dione (VP-0502) with its amino acid prodrug alanine amide of VP-0502 (VP-0502AL), following intravenous and oral administrations to rats. The plasma(More)
