Our purpose was to assess the use of magnetic stimulation for measuring conduction time of the recurrent and superior laryngeal nerves In 10 normal volunteers (7 male, 3 female). Subjects underwent laryngeal electromyography and magnetic stimulation of the vagus nerve bilaterally at the mastoid tip with a figure 8 coil. Mean muscle response latencies were(More)
The development of new phonosurgical techniques has increased the level of interest in the field of neurolaryngology. This field requires valid techniques for determining if muscle activation is normal. Laryngeal electromyography is being used more frequently to assess muscle innervation and synkinesis. Further, magnetic stimulation has been introduced as a(More)
N-Nitrosodialkylamines are considered a potential health hazard for humans. Among various N-nitrosodialkylamines compound, N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), was applied to lung cells, MLG. In order to examine the effect of NDMA in lung cells, cell death was first examined. NDMA induced cell death in a dose-dependent manner. Mitogen activated protein kinase(More)
Puerarin [4H-1-benzopyran-4-one,8-b-D-glucopyranosyl-7-hydroxy-3-(4-hydroxyphenyl)] is the major bioactive constituent in galgeun, which is the dried root of Puerariae Radix. For more than 2,000 years, galgeun has been widely used as an herbal medicine for its potential benefits on the treatment of common cold, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases in(More)
