Identical epidermal growth factor receptor mutations in adenocarcinomatous and squamous cell carcinomatous components of adenosquamous carcinoma of the lung
Attempts to investigate the EGFR mutation status in each component of adenosquamous carcinoma and to characterize the patients according to mutation status may help to understand the histogenesis of adenocarcinomatous carcinoma. Expand
Congenital absence of inferior vena cava as a rare cause of pulmonary thromboembolism.
A rare case ofruption of the inferior vena cava with azygos continuation, presenting with massive pulmonary embolism, and the congenital absence of retrohepatic IVC is reported. Expand
Elevated circulating level of osteopontin is associated with advanced disease state of non-small cell lung cancer.
Osteopontin (OPN) plays important roles in tumor progression and metastasis through binding to OPN receptors such as alpha(v)beta(beta) integrin and CD44, and its overexpression in tumor isExpand
Anti-oxidative and inhibitory activities on nitric oxide (NO) and prostaglandin E2 (COX-2) production of flavonoids from seeds of Prunus tomentosa Thunberg
Anti-oxidative and inhibitory activities on nitric oxide (NO) and prostaglandin E2 production in interferon-γ (INF-γ) and lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-activated RAW 2647 cells in vitro of the isolated compounds were evaluated. Expand
Clinical results of conversion total hip arthroplasty after failed bipolar hemiarthroplasty.
The conversion THA after symptomatic bipolar arthroplasty can offer reliable pain relief and functional improvement and the perioperative complications approximate those of revision THAs. Expand
Prognosis of thymic epithelial tumors according to the new World Health Organization histologic classification.
The WHO classification is associated with tumor invasiveness, recurrence, completeness of resection, and tumor-related death, and has good correlation with Masaoka stage, and the WHO histologic subtypes are an independently significant prognostic factor with respect to survival in the authors' multivariate analysis.

Differentiation Between Bone Infarction and Acute Osteomyelitis in Children with Sickle-Cell Disease with Use of Sequential Radionuclide Bone-Marrow and Bone Scans
It is suggested that osteomyelitis can be differentiated from bone infarction in children with sickle-cell anemia and acute bone pain by a combination of sequential bone-marrow and bone scintigraphy. Expand
Bronchobiliary fistula after radiofrequency thermal ablation of hepatic tumor.
A rare complication of brochobiliary fistula was encountered after RF ablation in a patient with a metastatic tumor from stomach cancer, assumed to have developed from collateral damage to the adjacent diaphragm and lung base as well as biloma formation at the ablation zone. Expand
Clinical significance of insulin receptor substrate-I down-regulation in non-small cell lung cancer.
Intratumoral expression of IRS-1 did not influence disease-free survival, disease-specific survival or overall survival of stage I NSCLC patients, whose median follow-up duration is 7.5 years (95% CI; 7.21-7.86 years). Expand
The Prevalence of Human Papillomavirus Infection in Korean Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Patients
It was showed that the prevalence rate of HPV 16 and 18 infections in NSCLC tissue was low, suggesting HPV 16and 18 infections played a limited role in lung carcinogenesis of Koreans, however, the higher prevalence of HPV 33 infections in Korean lung cancer patients compared to other Asian and Western countries may be important and warrants further investigation.
