Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the most common movement neurodegenerative movement disorder. An incomplete understanding of the molecular pathways involved in its pathogenesis impedes the development of effective disease-modifying treatments. To address this gap, we have previously generated a Drosophila model of PD that overexpresses PD pathogenic mutant form(More)
H-2 crossovers and their parental strains were arranged into 35 combinations in which the adult donor of spleen cells differed from the newborn recipient in the whole H-2 complex, or in three, two, or one region of the complex. A Simonsen splenomegaly assay was then used to test the contribution of the individual H-2 regions to the graft-versus-host(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the usefulness of multidetector-row computed tomography(CT) in the evaluation of reperfused myocardial infarction. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eleven rabbits were subjected to 90-min occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery followed by reperfusion. Multidetector-row CT was performed 31 hours+/-21 after the procedure and(More)
The objectives of this study were to determine the usefulness of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in the differentiation of various lesions causing an abnormality of the endometrial cavity by evaluating the imaging features on dynamic contrast-enhanced study and late contrast-enhanced T1-weighted images (T1WI). Contrast-enhanced MR imaging of 59(More)
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) have been used for analgesic, anti-inflammatory and antithrombotic actions and recently for cancer prevention, but they carries a risk of major gastroduodenal damages from symptomatic ulcers to serious complications leading to fatal outcomes. Therefore, the novel strategies to rescue long-term NSAID requiring(More)
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammat ory drugs (NSAIDs) are one of the drug types frequently prescribed for their analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and antithrombotic actions, but carry a risk of major gastroduodenal damage from mild erosive changes to serious ulceration leading to fatal outcomes. From the long history of willow tree bark and its extracts being applied(More)
PURPOSE Texture analysis on fluence maps was performed to evaluate the degree of modulation for volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT) plans. METHODS A total of six textural features including angular second moment, inverse difference moment, contrast, variance, correlation, and entropy were calculated for fluence maps generated from 20 prostate and 20(More)
BACKGROUND Various treatment protocols for melasma have been suggested in the literature, but the efficacy and safety of treatment varies according to the report. OBJECTIVE To investigate the selective photothermolytic effect of fluence-dependent intense pulsed light (IPL) in the treatment of melasma. METHODS Twenty Korean adults with melasma were(More)
The aim of this study is to present a modulation index considering both mechanical and dose calculation uncertainties for volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT). As a modulation index considering only mechanical uncertainty of VMAT, MIt has been previously suggested. In this study, we developed a weighting factor which represents dose calculation(More)
