PURPOSE There are controversies around the role of the posterior cruciate ligament and the effect of design modifications for high flexion in total knee arthroplasty (TKA). So, we compared the clinical outcomes of the cruciate retaining (CR), posterior stabilized (PS), and high flexion posterior stabilized (F-PS) designs in TKA with identical femoral(More)
Image registration with anatomical modalities, such as CT and MRI, facilitates the anatomical identification and localization in the interpretation of nuclear medicine images that lack anatomical information. The implementation of Functional Image Registration (FIRE), an operating system (OS) and platform independent multimodal image registration software(More)
UNLABELLED To evaluate the possibility of radionuclide gene therapy and imaging in hepatocellular carcinoma cancer, we investigated the iodine accumulation of a human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line, SK-Hep1, by transfer of human sodium iodide symporter (hNIS) gene. By targeting NIS expression in SK-Hep1, we could also investigate whether these cells(More)
For an objective interpretation of cerebral metabolic pattern to find epileptogenic zones in patients with temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE), we developed a computer-aided classifier using an artificial neural network (ANN). We studied 261 epilepsy patients diagnosed as no abnormal findings (NA, n = 64), left TLE (n = 116), or right TLE (n = 81) on interictal(More)
Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris produces great amounts of an exopolysaccharide (EPS), xanthan gum. Eight eps loci involved in biosynthesis of the EPS were previously located in the chromosome map of strain Xc17. In this study, the eps8 region was cloned, sequenced and found to contain a crp homologue whose deduced amino acid sequence possesses(More)
UNLABELLED We investigated the effect of doxorubicin on transgene expression and evaluated the mechanism of enhanced transgene expression by doxorubicin in transfected human anaplastic thyroid cancer cells (ARO cells). METHODS ARO cells were transfected with plasmid vectors or adenoviral vectors expressing human sodium/iodide symporter (hNIS) or(More)
The uvrB gene of Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris, a Gram-negative plant pathogenic bacterium inhabiting soil and infected plants, was cloned and sequenced. This gene has the capacity to encode a polypeptide of 673 amino acid residues with a calculated molecular mass of 75.9 kDa. Its deduced amino acid sequence shows a high degree of similarity and(More)
The authors aimed to demonstrate the relationship between the sagittal mechanical axis of the tibia and other reference axes of the tibia and fibula in patients with advanced osteoarthritis of the knee joints, and then to identify a reliable landmark in order to minimize posterior tibial slope measurement errors. We evaluated 133 osteoarthritic knees with(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to develop and validate a novel knee evaluation instrument, the Korean Knee Score (KKS), to reflect a floor life style with high knee flexion. In addition, we aimed to assess the importance of high knee flexion activity for Korean patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS The KKS was developed following the guidelines of the(More)
