Additionally, controversy still remains regarding whether there is an age-related increase in circulating cytokines in healthy individuals. We investigated(More)
BACKGROUND Despite increasing importance of Acinetobacter baumannii in nosocomial infections and rapid development of multi-antimicrobial resistance in this strain, the resistance mechanisms of beta-lactam antimicrobials in A. baumannii were not clearly defined. In order to observe the resistance mechanisms against beta-lactams and carbapenem, we(More)
Angiomyolipoma is a common tumor of the kidney but has rarely been found in the mediastinum. We report a case of angiomyolipoma of the posterior mediastinum in a 62-year-old woman. She experienced exertional dyspnea and intermittent cough at admission. Computed tomography indicated a tumor located at the left paravertebral and upper posterior mediastinum(More)
A fast microtomography system for high-resolution high-speed imaging has been developed using bright monochromatic x-rays at the BL29XU beamline of SPring-8. The shortest scan time for microtomography we attained was 0.25 s in 1.25 μm effective pixel size by combining the bright monochromatic x-rays, a fast rotating sample stage, and a high performance(More)
AIMS To evaluate the efficacy and safety of evogliptin, a newly developed dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor, in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) inadequately controlled by diet and exercise. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group, multicentre, phase III study, 160 patients with T2D were assigned to(More)
PURPOSE Several studies have evaluated the effects of growth hormone (GH) on auxological and biochemical parameters in children with non-GH-deficient, idiopathic short stature (ISS). This study evaluated the efficacy and safety of Growtropin®-II (recombinant human GH) in Korean patients with ISS. METHODS This was a 1-year, open-label, multicenter, phase(More)
The purpose of this study is to develop a framework for understanding teachers’ knowledge for teaching mathematics (MKT) by examining a hierarchy of 317 South Korean elementary teachers’ knowledge for teaching mathematics. Through a web-based survey, the teachers were asked to rank order their beliefs about and use of knowledge subdomains for teaching(More)
