Among 114 breast cancers in Taiwan, the prevalence of p53 mutation (22.8%) and p53 accumulation (38.3%) was similar to that in high-incidence areas. However, novel patterns of p53 abnormalities, including unique sites or types of mutation (i.e. an excessive proportion of G:C to A:T transition at CpG site), and accumulation of wild-type p53 either within(More)
PURPOSE The objectives of this study are: (1) to investigate the dosimetric differences of the different treatment planning systems (TPS) in breast irradiation with tangential fields, and (2) to study the effect of beam characteristics on dose distributions in tangential breast irradiation with 6 MV linear accelerators from different manufacturers.

This study uses a national database to evaluate the incidence of inguinal hernia and associated risk factors of incarcerated hernia in children from birth to 15 years of age. The study selected children born from 1997 to 2005 from a randomly selected cohort of 1,000,000 from an insured population of 23 million. We regarded children that were classified with(More)
Two CYP21 genes, the active CYP21 and the pseudogene, CYP21P, also pairs of duplicated genes including the XA, XB, XB-S; YA, YB; and ZA, ZB are arranged in tandem next to the serum complement C4 genes (C4A and C4B). In this report, we have analyzed the influence of some DNA sequences within the C4A/CYP21P region on the transcription activity of the human(More)
