Although hepatitis C virus (HCV) affects approximately 130-170 million people worldwide, no vaccines are available. HCV is an important cause of chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma, leading to the need for liver transplantation. In this study, curcumin, a constituent used in traditional Chinese medicine, has been evaluated for its(More)
Although adding oxaliplatin to fluorouracil and leucovorin in adjuvant chemotherapy for colon cancer may improve disease-free survival, grade 3–4 sensory neuropathy also increases. To determine whether oral N-acetylcysteine is neuroprotective against oxaliplatin-induced neuropathy, we did a pilot study. Fourteen stage III colon cancer patients with 4 or(More)
We have measured ultrafast charge carrier dynamics in monolayers and trilayers of the transition metal dichalcogenides MoS2 and WSe2 using a combination of time-resolved photoluminescence and terahertz spectroscopy. We recorded a photoconductivity and photoluminescence response time of just 350 fs from CVD-grown monolayer MoS2, and 1 ps from trilayer MoS2(More)
Recent studies have linked simian virus 40 (SV40) to non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), especially in countries in which people were exposed to contaminated polio vaccines prior to 1963. In Taiwan, nearly all children were not exposed to contaminated polio vaccine during this period; the relationship between SV40 infection and hematological malignancies is(More)
In this paper we investigate the methods for image keypoint detection, description, and matching. We compare four methods, including SIFT, SURF, ORB, and BRISK. The datasets used for evaluation cover different changes and transformations in imaging conditions, such as zoom, rotation, blur, viewpoint, light, and JPEG compression. We also compare the(More)
A 67-year-old woman presented with a history of dilated cardiomyopathy with congestive heart failure since 2003, who subsequently developed lower rectal cancer (adenocarcinoma) with liver, bone, and lymph node metastasis. Abdominoperineal resection and hepatectomy were performed. The patient received two rounds of intravenous chemotherapy, including 12 and(More)
The most well-known adverse events of oxaliplatin are hematologic toxicity, gastrointestinal tract toxicity, and sensory neuropathy. However, hypersensitivity reaction of oxaliplatin, especially severe anaphylactic reactions (SAR), was less often reported. Three hundred and three patients with colon cancer treated by oxaliplatin-containing chemotherapy in(More)
OBJECTIVE Sorafenib is a recommended treatment for advanced hepatocellular carcinoma. The study is to evaluate the efficacy of sorafenib plus cyproheptadine compared with sorafenib alone in patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma. METHODS A retrospective cohort study reviewed all consecutive advanced hepatocellular carcinoma cases with Child-Pugh(More)
STUDY DESIGN Case report. OBJECTIVE We report malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) discovered in a Tc-99m MDP bone scan as a photopenic lesion in a 64-year-old man presenting with low back pain and diagnosed with F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT). SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Malignant pleural(More)
