Low temperature or cold stress is one of the major constraints of rice production and productivity in temperate rice-growing countries and high-altitude areas in the tropics. Even though low temperature affects the rice plant in all stages of growth, the percent seed set is damaged severely by cold and this reduces the yield potential of cultivars(More)
Cold tolerance at the seedling stage of rice is an important phenotypic trait that causes normal plant growth and stable rice production in temperate regions as well as tropical high-lands in Asia and Africa. In order to find quantitative trait loci (QTLs)/genes associated with cold tolerance, we constructed a linkage map using 153 recombinant inbred lines(More)
Self-expandable metallic stent (SEMS) for malignant colorectal obstruction is widely used in palliative treatment and as an alternative to surgery. The aims of this study are to evaluate the effectiveness of stent placement for palliative treatment and to identify the predictive factors associated with stent occlusion. A retrospective analysis was performed(More)
BACKGROUND Snare polypectomy of a giant pedunculated colorectal polyp is sometimes technically demanding, and, therefore, piecemeal resection is inevitable, despite the relative risk of invasive cancer and postpolypectomy bleeding. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of endoscopic submucosal dissection in comparison(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS There have been no definite indications for additional surgical resection after endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) of submucosal invasive colorectal cancer (SICC). The aims of this study were to evaluate the feasibility of ESD for nonpedunculated SICC and to determine the need for subsequent surgery after ESD. PATIENTS AND METHODS A(More)
Inflammatory pseudopolyps are formed in the regenerative and healing phases of ulcerated epithelium. Giant pseudopolyposis of the colon (pseudopolyp larger than 1.5 cm in size) is a very rare complication of inflammatory bowel disease and it may lead to colonic intussusception or luminal obstruction, but the more important clinical significance is that it(More)
The immunosuppressant azathioprine (AZA) is widely used in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) for both inducing and maintaining remission. However, the adverse effects of AZA can often necessitate a dose reduction or discontinuation. Bone marrow suppression is one of the most serious complications with AZA treatment. On the other hand, some(More)
AIM To evaluate the efficacy and acceptability of magnesium citrate and a single dose of oral sodium phosphate (45 mL) solution for morning colonoscopy bowel preparation. METHODS A total of 159 patients were randomly assigned to receive two split doses of 90 mg of sodium phosphate (Group I, n = 79) or magnesium citrate (250 mL, the day before the(More)
For asymptomatic individuals aged 40–49 years, screening for colorectal cancer is recommended only if individuals are at an increased risk. A family history of colon cancer (FHCRC) is considered to increase risk, however, whether family history of stomach cancer (FHSC) increases the risk of adenoma is not well known. We aimed to see whether FHSC increases(More)
