The objective of this study was to evaluate the implication of human telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT) in cervical carcinogenesis and cancer recurrence. One hundred three cases of uterine cervix, including 20 normal, 13 low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (LSIL), 30 high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (HSIL), and 40 squamous cell(More)
The optimal steroid dosages in AECOPD are still under debate. Admission records of patients in our hospital from January to December 2008 due to a diagnosis of AECOPD were reviewed. More wheezing and tachypnea were noted in the patients with a maximal daily prednisolone dose more than 60 mg. The steroid dose was higher in AECOPD without pneumonia than those(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate tumor-spreading patterns in the parametrium. METHODS We conducted a prospective clinical trial between January 1998 and December 2000 to define a new method for parametrium evaluation. The parametrium was divided into three areas, paracorpus, paracervix, and paravagina. A total of 284 consecutive patients with FIGO stage IB to IIA(More)
Vascular access failure is a major cause of morbidity in chronic haemodialysis (HD) patients. However, some factors (such as homocysteine levels) are known regarding the risk factors predisposing certain HD patients to vascular access thrombosis (VAT). Immunoglobulin-G anticardiolipin antibody (IgG-ACA) is strongly associated with venous and arterial(More)
Acute renal failure (ARF) is a frequent medical complication after liver transplantation (LT). We analyzed cadaveric related liver transplant recipients who had developed ARF early in the postoperative course. Between January 1982 and August 2003, a total of 67 patients underwent cadaveric related LT. Their mean age was 28.64 years at LT. The 67 recipients(More)
Vascular access thrombosis (VAT) is an important cause of morbidity for chronic haemodialysis (HD) patients. Some risk factors for VAT have been well-defined for chronic HD patients from western countries. However, only a few such factors have been confirmed for Taiwanese patients. This study attempted to determine the association between(More)
Quantitative and qualitative studies of cyclosporine and its metabolites were performed on human bile from liver transplant and liver disease patients. The concentration of CsA in bile is higher in patients with normal liver function than in those with poor liver function but in neither case could account for more than 2% of an absorbed dose of CsA.(More)
