We evaluated associations between folate, vitamin B12, and the methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene, and risk of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) and cervical cancer. This multicenter case–control study enrolled 927 Korean women (440 controls, 165 patients with CIN 1, 167 patients with CIN 2/3, and 155 patients with cervical cancer, aged(More)
Currently, the satisfaction of user is becoming one of the most important topics concerned by the service providers. So we propose the approach method for the objective QoE measurement through the QoS parameters. The measurements and provisioning of the quality of service (QoS) are generally defined in terms of network delivery capacity and resource(More)
The natural history of high-risk human papillomavirus (HRHPV) infection after successful treatment of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) is not well known. This study was performed to evaluate the rate and pattern of HRHPV infection clearance after successful conization for CIN and to analyze factors associated with such clearance. A total of 287(More)
OBJECTIVE We analyzed the sonographic characteristics of thyroid nodules and assessed the diagnostic value of ultrasonography in order to distinguish between benign and malignant lesions in terms of the management of thyroid nodules. DESIGN We retrospectively analyzed the sonographic features of thyroid nodules in 580 patients who had been examined with(More)
BACKGROUND The association between autoimmune thyroiditis (AIT) and thyroid cancer is still not clear despite many previous reports. This study investigated whether serologic thyroid antibodies are predictive of thyroid cancer in patients with thyroid nodules. METHOD We retrospectively reviewed records of patients with thyroid nodules evaluated by(More)
Osteoporosis is a serious and relatively common complication of transplantation procedures. However, little is known about the exact mechanism or severity of osteoporosis complicated by bone marrow transplantation (BMT). We conducted both ex vivo and clinical studies to identify the mechanism and extent of bone loss after BMT. In a prospective clinical(More)
—In this paper, we propose an Adaptive Hybrid Transmission (AHT) scheme for on-demand mobile IPTV service over broadband wireless access network (i.e. mobile WiMAX, 802.16e). Proposed algorithm utilizes hybrid mechanism which combines multi-channel multicasting and unicast scheme to enhance not only service blocking probability but also reduce overall(More)
New diagnostic markers, other than squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) antigen, are needed for the detection of cervical cancer. Osteopontin (OPN) is a candidate frequently associated with several human malignancies. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical significance of OPN expression as a diagnostic and prognostic biomarker for cervical cancer.(More)
Cervical cancer is one of the most common gynecological malignancies in Korea, although the incidence has been declining in recent years. This study explored whether antioxidant vitamin intakes influenced the risk of cervical cancer. The association between antioxidant vitamin intakes and cervical cancer risk was calculated for 144 cervical cancer cases and(More)
BACKGROUND Galectin-3 (G3) immunostaining of fine-needle aspiration (FNA) samples from thyroid nodules is very useful for the diagnosis of malignancy. The objective of the present study was to determine whether the absence of G3 immunostaining in preoperative FNA samples is associated with favorable clinicopathological parameters, including lymph node (LN)(More)
