A Gram-negative and tryptophanase-positive thermophile, whose growth is dependent on co-culture with an associating Bacillus strain, had been reported and tentatively named Symbiobacterium thermophilum strain T(T). Axenic culture of strain T(T) was recently established by dialysing cultures with the supporting bacterial strains or adding their culture(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM The aim of the present study was to investigate the clinical effectiveness, safety, and outcome associated with the use of covered expandable Nitinol stents (Taewoong Medical, Seoul, Korea) for the treatment of malignant gastroduodenal obstructions. METHODS Between March 2001 and October 2004, covered expandable Nitinol stents were(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to identify the DNA methylation status of the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) signal-inhibiting genes dual-specificity phosphatase 4 (DUSP4) and 6 (DUSP6); and serpin peptidase inhibitor A member 5 (SERPINA5) in thyroid cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS Using 76 papillary thyroid cancer(PTC) tissues and three(More)
The roles of oncogenic miRNAs are widely recognized in many cancers. Inhibition of single miRNA using antagomiR can efficiently knock-down a specific miRNA. However, the effect is transient and often results in subtle phenotype, as there are other miRNAs contribute to tumorigenesis. Here we report a multi-potent miRNA sponge inhibiting multiple miRNAs(More)
Recommended by Tocka Diagana We study the existence and uniqueness of solutions and controllability for the semilinear fuzzy integrodifferential equations in n-dimensional fuzzy vector space E N n by using Banach fixed point theorem, that is, an extension of the result of J. H. Park et al. to n-dimensional fuzzy vector space.
PURPOSE We performed this study to investigate whether real-time tidal volume feedback increases optimal ventilation and decreases hyperventilation during manikin-simulated cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). BASIC PROCEDURES We developed a new real-time tidal volume monitoring device (TVD) which estimated tidal volume in real time using a magnetic(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to investigate whether the 1-year survival rate of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) patients with malignancy was different from that of those without malignancy. METHODS All adult OHCA patients were retrospectively analyzed in a single institution for 6years. The primary outcome was 1-year survival, and secondary(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Pyogenic liver abscess (PLA) is a life-threatening condition, despite advances in diagnostic technology and strategies for treatment. A strong predictor of mortality in this condition is septic shock. This study describes clinical, biochemical, and radiologic features in patients with PLA with or without septic shock, with the intent of(More)
