To investigate whether BCG, lymphtoxin (LT) or bee venom (BV) can prevent insulitis and development of diabetes in non-obese diabetic (NOD) mice, we measured the degree of insulitis and incidence of diabetes in 24 ICR and 96 female NOD mice. NOD mice were randomly assigned to control, BCG-, LT-, and BV-treated groups. The BCG was given once at 6 weeks of(More)
A cross-sectional study was conducted to evaluate the relationship between body mass and serum level of female sex hormones among 153 adolescent girls, and 153 postmenopausal women in Korea. Information on lifestyles, and both menstrual and reproductive factors was collected by personal interview. Serum total estradiol (E2), progesterone (Pg), and sex(More)
Fanconi anemia (FA) is an autosomal recessive disorder of progressive bone marrow failure in patients with congenital malformations. FA is different from acquired aplastic anemia (AA) in terms of the natural course and treatment options. As the frequency of FA is unknown in Korea, we conducted screening tests using DNA clastogenic agents, diepoxybutane(More)
Sulodexide, a glycosaminoglycan-containing compound, is known to have an antiproliferative effect on vascular smooth-muscle cells, in vitro, as well as antithrombotic and fibrinolytic effects. But there are few reports about the effect of neointimal proliferation in vivo. In this study, we examined whether Sulodexide was effective in the inhibition of(More)
Preoperative uterine artery embolization and cervical evacuation as conservative management of cervical pregnancy has been tried in recent years. However, cervical suturing, vasoconstrictor injection, or cervical ballooning was frequently used as an ancillary measures in those procedures in most of the previous studies. We report two cases of cervical(More)
We provided a curve-fit equation to predict the normal heart weight (g) in Koreans by examining 422 autopsies (215 males and 207 females, from newborn to age 77 yr) who were relatively in good general condition. Heart weight was well correlated with body surface area (m2), body weight (kg), and body height (cm) but poorly with age in both sex. Heart weight(More)
Citrus red mite (CRM) is known as the most common sensitizing allergen in subjects with asthma and rhinitis working on citrus farms. The aim of this study is to evaluate the role of specific IgG1 (slgG1) and specific IgG4 (slgG4) to CRM in citrus farmers. Questionnaire survey and skin prick test including CRM antigen was done by 136 workers. Specific IgE(More)
Blood lead concentrations of Koreans who have not been exposed to lead occupationally, show a wide range of variation. Despite the fact that blood lead concentration reveals a long-normal distribution, geometric means and standard deviations have not been presented in almost all studies on blood lead levels in Koreans. A new meta-analytical method was(More)
In order to define osteoporosis on the basis of bone mineral measurements, one must define an acceptable normal range or fracture threshold. It is clear that the normal range cannot be compared between different ethnic groups. We have measured spinal bone mineral density (BMD) by dual photon absorptiometry in 277 women without spinal fracture, aged 30-91(More)
