However, spontaneous biliary-enteric fistula is well recognized in AAC, 90% of which are cholecystoduodenal(More)

We investigated the difference in the cure rates of H. pylori infection by triple (rabeprazole plus amoxacillin and clarithromycin) therapy in relation to CYP2C19 genotype status. (More)

Whether it is of a calculous or acalculous origin, gallbladder perforation, as a complication of acute cholecystitis, has common symptoms, signs, laboratory data, radiological findings and(More)
To measure and to partition the effect of pregnancy on yield, the relationships among milk, fat, and protein yields during early lactation, current days open, and 305-d yields were investigated using sample day records of 247,310 Holstein cows. The model included fixed effects of calving herd-year-season, calving age, and days open; the continuous variable(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS De novo colorectal carcinoma shows more aggressive behavior including submucosal invasiveness. Both p53 and cyclo-oxygenase-2 (COX-2) have been shown to be involved in colon carcinogenesis, progression from adenoma to carcinoma, and submucosal invasion by tumor. We performed this study to evaluate the expression of p53 and COX-2 protein in(More)
