PURPOSE Gastric carcinoma more commonly affects older patients, and it is thought that cases of early-onset gastric carcinoma may develop with a different molecular profile different from that of carcinoma occurring at a later age. We assayed the methylation status and genetic changes in genes associated with the APC-beta-catenin axis and the mismatch(More)
Pincer nail deformity is characterized by excessive curvature and distortion of the nail in the transverse dimension, and particularly at the distal part of the nail plate. This deformity leads to pinching off and loss of soft tissue in the affected digit, causing severe pain. Many treatment methods have been proposed; however, an effective long-term method(More)
BACKGROUND The in vitro activities of retapamulin and fusidic acid against clinical isolates of mupirocin-resistant and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) from Korea are not well understood. OBJECTIVE This study aimed to determine the activities of retapamulin and fusidic acid against clinical isolates of mupirocin-resistant MRSA. (More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the effectiveness and toxicity when levamisole was added to the adjuvant combination chemotherapy in patients with operable gastric cancer. METHODS After en bloc resection of gastric cancer without gross or microscopic evidence of residual disease from April 1991 to December 1992, 100 patients were randomized to 6 months of(More)
PURPOSE In gastric cancer, peritoneal dissemination is the most frequent cause of the noncurative resection and recurrence after curative resection. We therefore evaluated the feasibility of radioimmunoguided surgery (RIGS) in the treatment of peritoneal metastases of gastric cancer and the use of anti-CEA-specific T84.66 F(ab')2 as an efficient immune(More)
Aeromonas hydrophila is a facultatively anaerobic, asporogenous gram-negative rod that has often been regarded as an opportunistic pathogen in hosts with impairment of a local or general defense mechanism. A 68-year-old alcoholic woman presented with shock and gangrene on the right arm. At first, her clinical presentations were severe painful erythematous(More)
BACKGROUND The patient and observer scar assessment scale (POSAS) recently emerged as a promising method, reflecting both observer's and patient's opinions in evaluating scar. This tool was shown to be consistent and reliable in burn scar assessment, but it has not been tested in the setting of skin graft scar in skin cancer patients. OBJECTIVE To(More)
The nail bed is an important part of the nail unit. It supports the nail plate, but does not regenerate itself. The labial mucosa and the nail bed both lack a granular layer. Because the keratinization of the nail bed can cause poor nail adhesion, harvesting graft from nonkeratinized sites is preferred. Furthermore, harvesting graft from labial mucosa is(More)
