Interleukin (IL)-25, a member of the IL-17 family of cytokines, is expressed in the brains of normal mice. However, the cellular source of IL-25 and its function in the brain remain to be elucidated. Here, we show that IL-25 plays an important role in preventing infiltration of the inflammatory cells into the central nervous system. Brain capillary(More)
This study was performed to examine the possibility of Er:YAG laser for dentine hypersensitivity treatment using a novel laser probe; broom-type probe. The morphological change of dentinal tubules of bovine dentine plate after low power laser irradiation (5 or 10 mJ/ pulse, 10 pps) or boiling was observed by SEM. Fifty teeth from 13 patients aged 31–54(More)

An experimental study was performed to observe heat transfer characteristics for design of an internal heat integrated distillation column system. The overall heat transfer coefficient and temperature difference were measured between the higherpressure rectifying section and the lower-pressure stripping section. It has been confirmed that the pressure ratio(More)
A male patient aged over 60 years presented with abdominal pain. A solid lesion measuring 7cm was detected in the pancreatic body and tail, along with periaortic lymphadenopathy. Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration suggested squamous cell carcinoma. Nab-paclitaxel+gemcitabine therapy was effective;however, tumor progression was noted after(More)
INTRODUCTION Organic chemical industries dealing with batch or semi-batch reaction processes usually need various separation processes to purify reaction products. In particular, a multipurpose high-efficiency distillation system is very useful after or during a reaction process. For example, it is of practically great importance to rectify solvent mixtures(More)
A 67-year-old male patient presented with an irregular mass involving the pancreatic body and tail with multiple liver/lymph node metastases. A biopsy indicated the presence of a poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma. Fever and increased white blood cell count, C-reactive protein levels, and granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) levels led to the(More)
