The prognosis of medulloblastoma has improved significantly because of advances in multi-modal treatments; however, metastasis remains one of the prognostic factors for a poor outcome and is usually associated with tumor recurrence. We evaluated the migratory potential and therapeutic efficacy of genetically engineered human neural stem cells (NSCs) that(More)
We previously demonstrated the protective effect of inducible heat shock protein 70 (Hsp70) against gamma radiation. Herein, we extend our studies on the possible role of Hsp70 to ionizing radiation-induced cell cycle regulation. The growth rate of inducible hsp70-transfected cells was 2-3 hours slower than that of control cells. Flow cytometric analysis of(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the effect of gadoxetic acid enhancement on the detection and characterisation of focal hepatic lesions on T(2) weighted and diffusion weighted (DW) images. METHODS A total of 63 consecutive patients underwent T(2) weighted and DW imaging before and after gadoxetic acid enhancement. Two blinded readers independently identified all(More)
WHAT IS KNOWN AND OBJECTIVE Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), which are widely used for the treatment of peptic ulcers and gastroesophageal diseases, reduce both basal and stimulated gastric acid secretion by inhibiting the parietal cell enzyme H(+)-K(+)-adenosine triphosphatase. There have been several reports of hypersensitivity reactions to PPIs but(More)
Pediatric brainstem glioma is an incurable malignancy because of its inoperability. As a result of their extensive tropism toward cancer and the possibility of autologous transplantation, human adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hAT-MSC) are attractive vehicles to deliver therapeutic genes to brainstem gliomas. In this study, in a good manufacturing(More)
BACKGROUND Although many factors have been found to be involved in recovery from Bell's palsy, no study has investigated the association between recovery from Bell's palsy and obesity. This study therefore evaluated the association between recovery from Bell's palsy and body mass index (BMI). METHODS Subjects were classified into five groups based on BMI(More)
