Information on precise effects of deflazacort on bone cell function, especially osteoclasts, is quite limited. Therefore, the present study was undertaken to test effects of deflazacort on osteoclast-like cell formation in mouse bone marrow cultures and on the regulation of osteoprotegerin (OPG) and its ligand (RANKL) mRNA expressions by RT-PCR in the ST2(More)
We had an opportunity to evaluate a child who developed fever approximately two to three weeks after the open heart surgery for tetralogy of Fallot. His peripheral blood smear showed rings and various stages of Plasmodium vivax. The patient had received packed red blood cells during the surgery and postoperative care, one unit of which was later proved(More)
Some circulating cancer cells in the blood play a central role in the metastatic process and may have a major influence on patient progress. Their numbers can be very small and techniques for their detection need to be both sensitive and specific. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) has been successfully used to detect small numbers of tumor cells in cancer. We(More)
The future technological revolution is expected to be led by converging technologies, having enormous effects on economic and industrial environments in the future. But there have been few attempts to make empirical approach to the concept of converging technologies. In order to obtain the overall concept of converging technologies, this study will look(More)
Feature-based similarity retrieval has become an important research issue in multimedia database systems. The features of multimedia data are useful for discriminating between multimedia objects (e g documents, images, video, music score, etc.). For example, images are represented by their color histograms, texture vectors, and shape descriptors, and are(More)
The volumetric caudal epidural steroid injection has been advocated to facilitate the delivery of medications to the lesion site. This study was aimed to examine the actual spreading patterns of this technique, using epidurogram. A total of 32 patients with chronic low back pain accompanied by radiculopathy of various causes (degenerative spondylosis,(More)
Hepatitis C viral infection occurs relatively low in Korea compared to hepatitis B. However, it progresses into chronic hepatitis and cirrhosis more frequently than HBV. It may be associated with cryoglobulinemia and glomerulonephritis, both in native and transplanted kidneys. We report three cases of membrano-proliferative glomerulonephritis type I in(More)
