CYP1A2, CYP2D6 and N-acetyltransferase activities were estimated in 100 patients with bladder cancer and 84 control subjects from measurements of theophylline, metoprolol and isoniazid and their metabolites in urine, respectively. The frequency of occurrence of slow acetylators of isoniazid and poor metabolizers of metoprolol were 16.7% and 1.2% in the(More)
The objective of the present study was to identify brain centers, whose activity changes are related to erotic visual stimuli in healthy, heterosexual, middle aged males. Ten heterosexual, right-handed males with normal sexual function were entered into the present study (mean age 52 years, range 46-55). All potential subjects were screened over 1 h(More)
Cranial capacity was measured in Korean adult skulls. The cavity was filled with rice seeds and the volume of the seeds were measured in a graduated cylinder. The results were 1470 +/- 107 (mean +/- standard deviation) in male and 1317 +/- 117 cc in female skulls. These values were in good accordance with those previously reported. In addition, regression(More)
BACKGROUND Flow cytometric immunophenotyping has been used to identify neoplastic plasma cell populations in patients with multiple myeloma (MM). Previous reports have described the use of several antigens, including CD38, CD138, CD56, CD117, CD52, CD19 and CD45, to distinguish distinct populations of plasma cells. The aim of this study was to evaluate a(More)
We provided a curve-fit equation to predict the normal heart weight (g) in Koreans by examining 422 autopsies (215 males and 207 females, from newborn to age 77 yr) who were relatively in good general condition. Heart weight was well correlated with body surface area (m2), body weight (kg), and body height (cm) but poorly with age in both sex. Heart weight(More)
Patients with acute myelocytic leukemia (AML) have varied outlooks for survival after the diagnosis. To identify pretreatment prognostic indicators in AML, we analyzed 132 cases of AML seen at our hospital between June, 1989 and December, 1994. The median age of the patients was 40 years (range, 15-81). There were 63 male and 69 female patients. One hundred(More)
There has been no standard therapy for patients with metastatic colorectal cancer who have failed to first-line fluorouracil-based treatment. The present study was designed to assess the efficacy and toxicities of a combination of oxaliplatin, 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and leucovorin in fluoropyrimidine-pretreated patients with metastatic colorectal cancer.(More)
PURPOSE Few studies have investigated the effects of everolimus therapy in Asian populations. This study evaluates the safety and efficacy of everolimus in Korean patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC). METHODS We retrospectively reviewed records of Korean patients with mRCC (n = 22) who received everolimus between January 2009 and July 2010(More)
Major ABO incompatibility may be potentially associated with immediate or delayed hemolysis and delayed onset of erythropoiesis in patients receiving allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). To determine if hemolysis can be prevented by the inhibition of graft erythropoiesis, we performed hypertransfusion and assessed red cell transfusion(More)
Non-myeloablative allogeneic peripheral stem cell transplantation (NST) is a novel therapeutic strategy for patients with hematologic malignancies. Whether non-myeloablative transplants are associated with increased risk of cytomegalovirus (CMV) infections is unknown. To clarify this issue, we compared the outcome of CMV infection following 24 allogeneic(More)
