The objective of this study was to clarify whether the neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and the platelet-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) are significant prognostic markers in patients with resectable colorectal cancer (CRC). A total of 200 patients who underwent curative resection for CRC were enrolled. The NLR and PLR were positively correlated (p < 0.001). Both(More)
This study on the relationships of indoor, outdoor, and personal air (RIOPA) was undertaken to collect data for use in evaluating the contribution of outdoor sources of air toxics and particulate matter (PM) to personal exposure. The study was not designed to obtain a population-based sample, but rather to provide matched indoor, outdoor, and personal(More)
BACKGROUND The evolutionally conserved MAPK Sty1 and bZIP transcriptional activator Atf1 are known to play a pivotal role in response to the reactive oxygen species in S. pombe. However, it is unclear whether all of the H(2)O(2)-induced genes are directly regulated by the Sty1-Atf1 pathway and involved in growth fitness under H(2)O(2)-induced stress(More)
The Relationship of Indoor, Outdoor and Personal Air (RIOPA) study was designed to investigate residential indoor, outdoor and personal exposures to several classes of air pollutants, including volatile organic compounds, carbonyls and fine particles (PM2.5). Samples were collected from summer, 1999 to spring, 2001 in Houston (TX), Los Angeles (CA) and(More)
Little is known about the natural history of right colonic diverticulitis treated with conservative management. The purpose of this study was to analyze the short-term outcome of a conservative approach to the treatment of patients with acute right colonic diverticulitis. A retrospective review of the clinical and radiological findings of 62 patients with(More)
Epidemiological studies routinely use central-site particulate matter (PM) as a surrogate for exposure to PM of ambient (outdoor) origin. Below we quantify exposure errors that arise from variations in particle infiltration to aid evaluation of the use of this surrogate, rather than actual exposure, in PM epidemiology. Measurements from 114 homes in three(More)
Sequence polymorphism in BrCRTISO1, encoding carotenoid isomerase, is identified in orange-colored B. rapa , and three resulting gene-based markers will be useful for marker-assisted breeding of OC cultivars. Carotenoids are color pigments that are important for protection against excess light in plants and essential sources of retinols and vitamin A for(More)
The diffusion tensor (DT) is a three-dimensional (3D) model of diffusivity in biological tissues. In white matter (WM), the major eigenvector, which is the direction of greatest diffusivity, is generally assumed to align with the direction of the fiber bundles. The distribution of major eigenvectors in WM has been investigated using color-based maps and WM(More)
Functioning nephron mass is a determinant of the graft function of kidney transplant recipients. The graft kidney volume and its weight have been reported to be surrogates of the nephron mass. To investigate the impact of the ratios of the surrogates to recipient body surface area (BSA) and body weight on the graft function within six months(More)
OBJECTIVE. Although endoscopic treatment for early gastric cancer (EGC) is an accepted therapy in South Korea and Japan, long-term outcomes remain unknown. We evaluated the clinical outcome of endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for gastric dysplasia and EGC. MATERIAL AND METHODS. A total of 402 patients with gastric dysplasia and EGC were treated with(More)
