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)
In this paper, we study the existence and uniqueness of solutions and controllability for the semilinear fuzzy integrodifferential equations in n-dimensional fuzzy vector space (EN ) n by using Banach fixed point theorem. That is an extension of the result of Park et al. [J.H. Park, J.S. Park and Y.C. Kwun, Controllability for the semilinear fuzzy(More)
INTRODUCTION We performed this study to investigate whether the SEDline system, a 4-channel-processed electroencephalography (EEG) monitoring device in the frontal area, can detect epileptiform discharges accurately during post-resuscitation care in comatose cardiac arrest survivors. METHODS Adult comatose cardiac arrest survivors, who were admitted to(More)
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)
INTRODUCTION We performed this study to investigate the association of pre-hospital supraglottic airway (SGA) on neurological outcome in cardiac arrest victims with adjustment of post-resuscitation variables as well as pre-hospital and resuscitation variables. METHODS This study was a retrospective study based on a multicenter prospective cohort registry(More)
