Decreases in the elevated serum IgE(More)
For percutaneous epidural adhesiolysis (PEA) in patients with chronic low back and/or leg pain, comparative efficacy of lumbar PEA between the sacral types has not yet been investigated. This study aimed to determine the comparative efficacy of lumbar PEA between the sacral types in chronic pain with lumbosacral herniated intervertebral disc (L-HIVD).A(More)
BACKGROUND Since its reemergence in 1993, a number of cases of Plasmodium vivax malaria have been reported in Korea.
