OBJECTIVES Several reports suggest that enhanced generation or actions of nitric oxide (NO) have been implicated in the pathogenesis of glomerular hyperfiltration and hyperperfusion that occurs in early diabetes. However, the precise role of altered NO generation in the pathogenesis of diabetic nephropathy is unclear. The present study was aimed at(More)
Aromadendrin, a flavonol, has been reported to possess a variety of pharmacological activities such as anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-diabetic properties. However, the underlying mechanism by which aromadendrin exerts its biological activity has not been extensively demonstrated. The objective of this study is to elucidate the anti-inflammatory(More)
OBJECTIVES Central and peripheral roles of nitric oxide (NO) in blood pressure regulation have been suggested. The present study was aimed at examining if the role of NO in blood pressure regulation is altered in chronic renal failure. METHODS Blood pressure responses to acute inhibition of NO were examined in 5/6 nephrectomized rats. Three weeks after(More)
A 29-year-old woman presented with bloody diarrhea, abdominal pain, hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia, and acute renal failure. She was diagnosed with Escherichia coli O104:H4-associated hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS) and treated with plasmapheresis and hemodialysis for 3 weeks. She recovered without sequelae. To the best of our knowledge, this is the(More)
In the breast-cancer image detection device field, remarkable advancements have been made in the breast cancer detection method using microwave radiation that satisfies the conditions required by Institute of Medicine (IOM). This paper is for embodying the microwave analysis breast tumor detection system that can analyze the permittivity and the(More)
Recommended by Vincent Lau This paper addresses the displacement of a base station with optimization approach. A genetic algorithm is used as optimization approach. A new representation that describes base station placement, transmitted power with real numbers, and new genetic operators is proposed and introduced. In addition, this new representation can(More)
The Korean Society of Nephrology (KSN) launched the official End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Patient Registry in 1985 and the Internet online registry program was opened in 2001. The ESRD Registry Committee of KSN has collected data on dialysis therapy in Korea through the online registry program in the KSN Internet website. The increasing number of elderly(More)
In the present study we report the results of 200 percutaneous internal jugular vein catheterizations for hemodialysis performed at our center in 161 patients, 95 males and 66 females with a mean age of 39.77 +/- 12.9 years (mean +/- SD). 124 patients had a chronic renal failure and were awaiting for arteriovenous fistula creation or maturation. Major(More)
The involvement of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) in the neurodegenerative disease, especially Alzheimer's disease (AD), has received wide consideration, however, outcomes from several researches have not shown consistency. In this study, we determined whether RF-EMF influenced AD pathology in vivo using Tg-5xFAD mice as a model of AD-like(More)
