Fourteen shoulders in 14 patients with minimally displaced fractures of the greater tuberosity of the proximal humerus were evaluated, at an average of 3 years, 7 months (range: 1 year to 6 years, 1 month) after the operation. For comparison this portion of the proximal humerus was measured using 100 Korean adult cadaveric humeri. The results of these(More)
Caenorhabditis elegans is an accepted model host to study host-bacteria interactions in the gut, in addition to being a simple model with which to study conserved aspects of biological signaling pathways in intestinal environments, because these nematode worms have similar intestinal cells to those of humans. Here, we used C. elegans to develop a new in(More)
To investigate telomere changes in patients with aplastic anaemia (AA) and clinical factors influencing the telomere dynamics, telomere length (TL) was measured in peripheral blood mononuclear cells using Southern blot analysis of 42 patients with AA and 39 healthy normal controls. Nineteen patients received supportive treatment only, while the remaining 23(More)
BACKGROUND This study explored the impact of genetic polymorphisms in cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes and transporters on the plasma trough concentration of imatinib mesylate (IM) and clinical response in chronic myeloid leukemia (CML). PATIENTS AND METHODS In total, 82 patients with CML who had been administered 400 mg IM daily for over 6 months were(More)
BACKGROUND Enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) with recombinant human idursulfase is effective for the treatment of Hunter syndrome, mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) type II. However, various adverse events can occur by the infusion of idursulfase. The purpose was to evaluate the occurrence of infusion-related allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis, to(More)
To treat cutting oil wastewater produced in metal surface treatment industry, Ultrasonication (US)-Fenton process, which is one of the advanced oxidation processes, was used. The optimum conditions to treat non-biodegradable pollutants using the US-Fenton process were that the application rates of H2O2 and FeSO4 were 10% and 3 g/L, respectively, the value(More)
Granulocyte transfusions have been advocated by some for the treatment of severe, progressive infections in neutropenic patients who fail to respond to antimicrobial agents and recombinant hematopoietic growth factors. We conducted the current study to determine an appropriate method of granulocyte mobilization in healthy donors, and to evaluate the safety(More)
The expression of resveratrol synthase (RS) genes is induced by biotic and abiotic factors in peanut cell cultures. However, little is known about the regulation of the RS gene expression in peanut plants. The expression of RS genes was investigated in peanut plants with a peanut RS clone, pPRS3C, which encodes two polypeptides that show about a 96% amino(More)
150 Korean patients undergoing primary uncemented total hip replacement were randomized into 3 treatment groups for deep vein thrombosis (DVT) prophylaxis. Group A(50) were controls; Group B(50) received aspirin 1.2 g daily in 3 divided doses from 2 days before, to 14 days after surgery; Group C(50), received low molecular weight dextran 500 ml, infused(More)
This study was designed to quantify the early neurologic effects of brain injury elicited by fluid percussion to the dura of cats. Propofol was used for surgical anesthesia because recovery in normal animals from an intravenous infusion was found to be nearly complete within 2 h of cessation and absolutely complete by 4 h. In addition, a cat coma scale(More)
