Digital still and video cameras require ADCs with high 14b or more of resolution to obtain sufficient image quality after the data pass through the color processing pipeline. A column-parallel ADC in CMOS image sensors helps to enable high-speed readout of high-quality images by preventing the large wideband noise caused by high-speed analog readout(More)
Korean red ginseng (KRG), the steamed root of Panax ginseng Meyer, has a variety of biological properties, including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anticancer effects. Aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) produced by the Aspergillus spp. causes acute hepatotoxicity by lipid peroxidation and oxidative DNA damage, and induces liver carcinoma in humans and laboratory(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Remnant lipoproteins (RLPs) are products of partially catabolized chylomicrons and very-low-density lipoprotein, from which some triglycerides have been removed. These particles are smaller and denser than the parent particles and are believed to be strongly atherogenic. We explored the association between RLP cholesterol (RLP-C) and(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The time of hospital arrival may have an effect on prognosis of various vascular diseases. We examined whether off-hour admission would affect the 3-month functional outcome in acute ischemic stroke patients admitted to tertiary hospitals. METHODS We analyzed the 'off-hour effect' in consecutive patients with acute ischemic stroke(More)
This study was conducted to determine the Phytophthora rot resistance of 514 accessions of watermelon germplasm, Citrullus lanatus var lanatus. About 46% of the 514 accessions tested were collections from Uzbekistan, Turkey, China, U.S.A., and Ukraine. Phytophthora capsici was inoculated to 45-day-old watermelon seedlings by drenching with 5 ml of(More)
We decompose stock return autocorrelation into spurious components—the nonsynchronous trading effect (NT) and bid-ask bounce (BAB)—and genuine components—partial price adjustment (PPA) and time-varying risk premia (TVRP), using four key ideas: theoretically signing or bounding the components; computing returns over disjoint subperiods separated by a trade(More)
BACKGROUND Most cases with congenital hypothyroidism (CH) are usually sporadic, while about 20% of the cases are caused by genetic defects. Little information is available regarding the mutation incidence and genetic heterogeneity of CH in Koreans. We aimed to determine the mutation incidence of CH in newborn screenings (NBS) and to evaluate the frequency(More)
STUDY DESIGN Retrospective interventional study. PURPOSE To introduce a free-hand pedicle screw (PS) insertion technique without fluoroscopic guidance in the C7 vertebra and evaluate the procedure's feasibility and radiologic outcomes. OVERVIEW OF LITERATURE Although PS insertion at C7 has been recognized as a critical procedure in posterior cervical(More)
Hereditary gelsolin amyloidosis (HGA) is an autosomal dominant hereditary disease characterized by corneal lattice dystrophy, peripheral neuropathy, and cutis laxa. So far, no Korean patients with HGA have been reported. A 58-yr-old man presented with involuntary facial twitching, progressive bilateral facial weakness, and tongue atrophy. His mother,(More)
