Inspired by the relatively simple morphological blueprint provided by batoid fish such as stingrays and skates, we created a biohybrid system that enables an artificial animal--a tissue-engineered ray--to swim and phototactically follow a light cue. By patterning dissociated rat cardiomyocytes on an elastomeric body enclosing a microfabricated gold(More)
We have reported a possible involvement of apurinic/apyrimidinic endonuclease 1 (APE1), one of the DNA repair pathways, in various nephropathy models and found that there is a close connection between APE1 and p53-dependent apoptosis. Therefore, we investigated the changes of APE in aging rat kidney since aging is the consequence of increased susceptibility(More)
The bispectral index (BIS) has been used as a measure of the degree of sedation and level of hypnosis for IV hypnotics and sedatives, potent volatile anesthetics. We evaluated the effect of increasing concentrations of nitrous oxide (N2O) on BIS and compared it with the Observer's Assessment of Alertness and Sedation (OAA/S) scale in patients undergoing(More)
We conducted a phase I trial of the antiangiogenic agent 6-O-(4-dimethylaminoethoxy) cinnamoyl fumagillol hemioxalate (CKD-732). Our aims were to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD), pharmacokinetics (PK), and safety profiles as well as identify the biologically active dose (BAD) from ex vivo pharmacodynamics (PD) and biomarkers of CKD-732. Using a(More)
Background We conducted a Phase I clinical trial to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics (PK) of CKD-732 [6-O-(4-dimethylaminoethoxy) cinnamoyl fumagillol hemioxalate] in combination with capecitabine and oxaliplatin (XELOX) in nine metastatic colorectal cancer patients who had progressed on irinotecan-based chemotherapy. Methods Using a(More)
OBJECTIVE The aims of this study were to identify prognostic factors for overall survival (OS) in patients with small cell lung cancer (SCLC) and to construct a prognostic index on the basis of their expected OS. Long-term survivors were also given special attention. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed 295 patients diagnosed with SCLC from January 2002 to(More)
BACKGROUND Recent studies have shown the importance of postprandial glucose (PPG) in the development of diabetes complications. This study was conducted in order to survey the perceptions of clinicians and diabetic patients with respect to PPG management and the current status of diabetes education. METHODS This was a cross-sectional study involving(More)
Most recently, 1-h hyperglycemia has been recognized as an additional risk factor for type 2 diabetes. To date, previous genome-wide association studies for glycemic traits have a limited impact on the fasting state and 2-h plasma glucose level in an oral glucose challenge. To identify genetic susceptibility in different stages of glucose tolerance, we(More)
To investigate the role of genetic predisposition in the pathogenesis of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in relation to obesity, we performed a genome-wide association study of PCOS in Koreans (n=1741). PCOS is a heterogeneous endocrinal disorder of uncertain etiology. Obesity is one of the well-known risk factors for PCOS. Genome-wide association study.(More)
Flow cytometry and fluorescence activated cell sorting techniques were designed to realize configurable classification and separation of target cells. A number of cell phenotypes with different functionalities have recently been revealed. Before simultaneous selective capture of cells, it is desirable to label different samples with the corresponding dyes(More)
