The immunological pathogenesis of Mycoplasma pneumoniae pneumonia is known to involve several cytokines. The serum levels of interleukin-18 (IL-18) were examined using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay in 23 pediatric patients (median age 6 years; range 4-13 years; 14 girls and 9 boys) with M. pneumoniae pneumonia admitted to our hospital. Serum levels of(More)
BACKGROUND This study evaluated the effect of prophylactic cefdinir (3 mg/kg given once daily) for the prevention of recurrent and complicated urinary tract infections (UTI) in pediatric patients. METHODS The study included 14 infants who were observed for at least 6 months following the first signs of infection (eight boys, six girls; mean age at(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the high shear granulation process using near-infrared (NIR) chemical imaging technique and to make the findings available for pharmaceutical development. We prepared granules and tablets made under appropriate- and over-granulation conditions with high shear granulation and observed these granules and tablets(More)
This study describes a high corrosion resistance technology for the positive electrode of lead acid battery that becomes possible by replacing a lead alloy grid by a SnO<sub>2</sub> coated Ti collector. Experimental batteries with a Ti/SnO<sub>2</sub> collector were subjected to accelerated float life test at 65 degree C and cycle life test at 25 degree C.(More)
