Two Gram-variable, rod-shaped, endospore-forming bacterial strains, which are motile with peritrichous flagella, were isolated from a Korean traditional fermented seafood, jeotgal. The two isolates (strains YKJ-1OT and YKJ-11) were proven to be members of the same species on the basis of the results of phenotypic and phylogenetic analyses and DNA(More)
BACKGROUND Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is a well-known precursor of Alzheimer's disease (AD) but often also precedes dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB). The early differentiation of DLB from AD is important to delay disease progression. Olfactory dysfunction is a well-known early sign of both AD and Lewy body disorders, including Parkinson's disease (PD)(More)
HyperIgEemia and atopy have recently been reported to be related to various neurological diseases such as Hirayama disease and idiopathic myelitis. The aims of this study are to determine frequency of atopy or hyperIgEemia in idiopathic myelitis and to characterize the clinical and laboratory profiles of atopic myelitis (AM). From January 2006 to August(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS This study was undertaken to examine three main relationships. First, the distance and angle from the anterior ethmoidal canal to the limen nasi and the sill were measured. Second, the location of the anterior ethmoidal canal was examined in relation to the lamellas and the skull base. Third, the existence of bony defects in the canal(More)
BACKGROUND Whether triple antiplatelet therapy is superior or similar to dual antiplatelet therapy in patients with acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction undergoing primary percutaneous coronary intervention in the era of drug-eluting stents remains unclear. METHODS AND RESULTS A total of 4203 ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction patients(More)
Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) is a rare disease that occurs mainly in immunocompromised patients. Despite the progressive nature of the disease, the changes on MRI during the disease course - which may help in monitoring the disease process - have seldom been reported. Here we describe a patient with polymerase-chain-reaction-proven PML(More)
attenuation pole at 1.2 GHz, electromagnetic coupling between two resonators is controlled and capacitance pattems are added. The designed inter-resonators coupling constant is k = 0.129. Fig. 3 compares the simulated and measured results of the proposed filter. The 3-D field simulation is carried out with HFSS (Ansoft Co., Ltd.). The measured results show(More)
OBJECTIVES Aspirin resistance is one of several possible explanations for limited efficacy or treatment failure of aspirin. However, the predictors of aspirin resistance are not well known. We therefore conducted a study of laboratory-defined aspirin resistance in Korean patients with ischemic stroke and considered a wide range of factors as possible(More)
Two cases of Kikuchi disease showed variable nodal enhancing features, including homogeneous enhancement and focal or extensive nodal necrosis on contrast-enhanced CT scans. At MR imaging, the area of central necrosis was isointense or hypointense on T1-weighted images and had a lower signal than nonnecrotic areas on T2-weighted images. The CT appearance of(More)
