INTRODUCTION Gout is characterized by episodes of intense joint inflammation in response to intra-articular monosodium urate monohydrate (MSU) crystals. miR-155 is crucial for the proinflammatory activation of human myeloid cells and antigen-driven inflammatory arthritis. The functional role of miR-155 in acute gouty arthritis has not been defined.(More)
Color laser printers are nowadays abused to print or forge official documents and bills. Identifying color laser printers will be a step for media forensics. This paper presents a new method to identify color laser printers with printed color images. First, 39 noise features of color printed images are extracted from the statistical analysis of the HH(More)
Estimating printing source is applicable in many forensic situations. In this paper, we propose an electrophotographic printer identification scheme from its printed material, in which imperceptible halftone patterns are contained inherently. The halftone textures in each channel of CMYK domain are analyzed. We construct a histogram from angle values of(More)
—This paper proposes a steganalysis scheme using the difference histogram and image calibration. The message embedding makes the correlation with the neighboring pixels weaken and the random changes of the pixel values generate the block effects among the pixels. The proposed method crops a suspicious image by 1 pixel in a row or column direction and(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES WE INVESTIGATED ECHOCARDIOGRAPHIC PREDICTORS: left ventricular (LV) geometric changes following aortic valve replacement (AVR) according to the late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) on cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) in patients with severe aortic stenosis (AS) and preserved LV systolic function. SUBJECTS AND METHODS We(More)
BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES This study was performed to investigate the in vitro antioxidant and cytoprotective effects of fermented sesame sauce (FSeS) against hydrogen peroxide (H2O2)-induced oxidative damage in renal proximal tubule LLC-PK1 cells. MATERIALS/METHODS 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH), hydroxyl radical ((•)OH), and H2O2 scavenging assay was(More)
The objective of this study was to develop a Korean version of the Assessment of Spondyloarthritis International Society-Health Index/Environmental Factor (ASAS HI/EF) and to evaluate its reliability and validity in Korean patients with axial spondyloarthritis (SpA). A total of 43 patients participated. Translation and cross-cultural adaptation of the ASAS(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is often performed therapeutically, and antithrombotic treatment is required for at least 12 months after stent implantation. However, the development of post-PCI upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB) increases morbidity and mortality. We investigated the incidence and risk factors for UGIB in Korean(More)

This paper examines the effects of investor learning on the dynamics of managers' voluntary disclosure decisions. Using a multi-period voluntary disclosure model and structural estimation, I find that investor learning introduces persistence in disclosure incentives because of the correlation of investors' beliefs over time. Disclosure is more likely when(More)
