Successful management of bleeding duodenal varices by endoscopic variceal ligation and balloon-occluded retrograde transvenous obliteration.
Upper-GI variceal bleeding is an important complication of portal hypertension. Endoscopic injection sclerotherapy (EIS) and endoscopic variceal ligation (EVL) are widely accepted as primaryExpand

Plasma adiponectin plays an important role in improving insulin resistance with glimepiride in elderly type 2 diabetic subjects.
OBJECTIVE We investigated the effect of glimepiride, a third-generation sulfonylurea hypoglycemic agent, on insulin resistance in elderly patients with type 2 diabetes, in connection with plasmaExpand

A cambialistic SOD in a strictly aerobic hyperthermophilic archaeon, Aeropyrum pernix.
The superoxide dismutase (SOD) gene of Aeropyrum pernix, a strictly aerobic hyperthermophilic archaeon, was cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli, and its gene product was characterized. TheExpand

Secretion by Saccharomyces cerevisiae of human apolipoprotein E as a fusion to serum albumin.
For secretion of human apolipoprotein E (hApoE) by Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the hApoE gene was fused to truncated human serum albumin (HSA)-encoding sequences and expressed under the control of theExpand

Identification of Suberization-associated Anionic Peroxidase as a Possible Allergenic Protein from Tomato
A 45 kDa protein, which is recognized by IgE antibodies in sera of food-allergic patients, was purified and characterized as an allergenic protein from the tomato. The IgE-binding protein purifiedExpand
