Mitochondrial dysfunction in dopaminergic neurons of patients with idiopathic and familial Parkinson's disease (PD) is well known although the underlying mechanism is not clear. We established a homogeneous population of human adipose tissue-derived mesenchymal stromal cells (hAD-MSCs) from human adult patients with early-onset hereditary familial(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of CT software that generates rib unfolding images and automatically numbers ribs and thoracic spines on radiologist performance in detecting thoracic bone metastases from breast cancer. METHODS A total of 126 patients with breast cancer who underwent chest CT and fludeoxyglucose (FDG)-positron emission tomography (PET)/CT(More)
Parallux, a solid-phase fluorescence immunoassay (SPFIA) developed for antibotics residue detection in milk, was applied for analysis of fish tissue. The recommended therapeutic doses of oxytetracycline (OTC, 100 g/ton water, withdrawal period 30 days) and tetracycline (TC, 150 g/ton water, withdrawal period 30 days) were treated to a group of 35 olive(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the computed tomography (CT) findings and clinical characteristics of pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) in patients with emphysema, compared with those without emphysema. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-nine patients (M:F = 36:3; mean age, 64.8 years) who were diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and had emphysema in(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between lobar severity of emphysema and lung cancer using automated lobe segmentation and emphysema quantification methods.This study included 78 patients (74 males and 4 females; mean age of 72 years) with the following conditions: pathologically proven lung cancer, available chest computed(More)
INTRODUCTION This study was conducted to investigate the relationships between the effect of sunitinib and immature microvessels which are not covered by pericytes. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study involved 29 patients with clear-cell renal cell carcinoma (RCC) who took sunitinib after radical nephrectomy or biopsy due to metastatic RCC. Associations(More)
The purpose of our study was to evaluate the feasibility and safety of CT-guided percutaneous lung biopsy using two needles in difficult and poorly cooperative patients; and to examine the usefulness of the malpositioned first needle in tissue sampling with a second needle. This study included 17 consecutive patients with unsuccessful first insertion of the(More)
