TWO VARIANTS OF THE INOSINE TRIPHOSPHATASE (ITPA rs1127354, rs7270101) gene cause ITPA deficiency and protect against the hemolytic toxicity of ribavirin. We investigated the clinical significance of ITPA variants in Korean patients treated with pegylated interferon (PEG-IFN) plus ribavirin. Of the 133 patients, 108 were CC and 25 were non-CC at rs1127354(More)
To evaluate the activity and safety of a combination chemotherapy with epirubicin, cisplatin, and a protracted venous infusion of 5-fluorouracil (ECF) in unresectable or metastatic gastric cancer, a phase II study was performed. Thirty-five chemotherapy-naive patients were given ECF. Epirubicin (50 mg/m(2) intravenous, i.v.) and cisplatin (60 mg/m(2) i.v.)(More)

Recommended by Donal O'Regan We give some subordination-and superordination-preserving properties of certain nonlinear integral operators defined on the space of normalized analytic functions in the open unit disk. The sandwich-type theorems for these integral operators are also obtained. Moreover, we consider an application of the subordination and(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Most patients with acute viral hepatitis A have a favorable course, but a few of them suffer from severe forms of hepatitis such as fulminant hepatitis. This study was carried out to identify the factors influencing the severity of acute viral hepatitis A. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 713 patients with acute(More)
BACKGROUND Although numerous chemotherapeutic agents have been tested, the role of systemic chemotherapy for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has not been clarified. New therapeutic strategies are thus needed to improve outcomes, and we designed this study with new effective drug combination. METHODS Twenty-nine patients with histologically-confirmed,(More)
Let q 1 and q 2 belong to a certain class of normalized analytic univalent functions in the open unit disk of the complex plane. Sufficient conditions are obtained for normalized analytic functions p to satisfy the double subordination chain q 1 (z) ≺ p(z) ≺ q 2 (z). The differential sandwich-type result obtained is applied to normalized univalent functions(More)
To elucidate the genes responsible for constitutive human skin color, we measured the extent of skin pigmentation in the buttock, representative of lifelong non-sun-exposed skin, and conducted a gene mapping study on skin color in an isolated Mongolian population composed of 344 individuals from 59 families who lived in Dashbalbar, Mongolia. The(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Sustained virologic response (SVR) for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C (CHC) may differ with ethnicity due to differences in genetic traits. This study evaluated the efficacy of peginterferon and ribavirin, and the association between IL28B genotypes and the treatment efficacy in Korean CHC patients. METHODS This was a retrospective(More)
