BACKGROUND This study evaluated the accuracy of fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) in cases of follicular neoplasm (FN) on the basis of histologic diagnosis, and reviewed the cytologic findings of FN according to the FNAC. METHODS Among the 66 cases diagnosed with thyroid FN by FNAC during the 7-year period from 2003 to 2009, 36 cases that had(More)
For developing a clinically effective bone regeneration strategy, we compare the bone regeneration potential of cultured allogeneic bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BM-MSCs) and of autologous BM-MSCs loaded onto allogeneic cancellous bone granule scaffolds. A critical-sized segmental bone defect was made at the mid-shaft of both radiuses in 19(More)
The extent of unilateral chromosomal losses and the presence of microsatellite instability (MSI) have been classified into high-risk (high- and baseline-level loss) and low-risk (low-level loss and MSI) stem-line genotypes in gastric carcinomas. A unilateral genome-dosage reduction might stimulate compensation mechanism, which maintains the genomic dosage(More)
BACKGROUND The transitional-CpG sites between weakly methylated genes and densely methylated retroelements are overmethylated in the gastric mucosa infected with Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) and they are undermethylated in the gastric cancers depending on the level of loss of heterozygosity (LOH) events. This study delineated the transitional-CpG(More)
