BACKGROUND Although laparoscopic surgery has many advantages, its application in pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma has not been sufficiently studied. The objective of this study was to compare the surgical outcomes of laparoscopic distal pancreatectomy (LDP) to those of open distal pancreatectomy (ODP) for left-sided ductal adenocarcinoma. STUDY DESIGN(More)
PURPOSE There are no reports about bone graft and cell therapy for the osteonecrosis of femoral head (ONFH). We prospectively evaluated the clinical results of auto-iliac cancellous bone grafts combined with implantation of autologous bone marrow cells for ONFH. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty-one hips in 52 patients with ONFH treated with bone graft and cell(More)
Laparoscopic central pancreatectomy (LCP) is a parenchyma-sparing minimally invasive surgical technique for removal of benign or low-grade malignant lesions from the neck and proximal body of the pancreas. The aim of this study was to compare the short- and long-term clinical outcomes of LCP with those of other pancreatectomies. During the study period,(More)
The objective of the present study was to identify reliable preoperative factors predicting malignancy or invasiveness of intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN) of the pancreas and the effectiveness of a diagnostic scoring system based on these factors. Between August 1994 and December 2007, 204 patients underwent pancreatic resection for IPMN at a(More)
To compare perioperative and oncologic outcomes of pure (totally) laparoscopic pancreaticoduodenectomy (TLPD) or robot-assisted pancreaticoduodenectomy (RAPD) with those of conventional open pancreaticoduodenectomy (OPD). A systematic literature search was performed using PubMed, EMBASE, and Cochrane library databases. Studies comparing TLPD with OPD and(More)
Suppression subtractive hybridization was used to construct a subtracted library (ogfw) from plants of a wild rice species, Oryza grandiglumis, subjected to a fungal elicitor and physical wounding. To screen the differentially expressed transcripts in the library, we applied a reverse Northern blot analysis to a cDNA microarray containing 1,152 random(More)
A previously unidentified gene encoding ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme was isolated from leaves of wild rice plant treated with wounding and microbe-associated molecular patterns. The OgUBC1 gene was composed of 148 amino acids and contained a typical active site and 21 ubiquitin thioester intermediate interaction residues and 4 E3 interaction residues. Both(More)
We evaluated the performance of a new chromogenic medium for detection of Clostridium difficile, chromID C. difficile agar (CDIF; bioMérieux, France), by comparison with BBL C. difficile Selective Agar (CDSA; Becton Dickinson and Company, USA). After heat pre-treatment (80℃, 5 min), 185 diarrheal stool samples were inoculated onto the two media types and(More)
Wild rice, Oryza grandiglumis shows hyper-resistance response to pathogen infection. In order to identify genes necessary for defense response in plants, we have carried out a subtractive hybridization coupled with a cDNA macroarray. An acidic PATHOGENESIS-RELATED1 (PR1) gene of the wild rice is highly identical to the acidic PR1 genes of different plant(More)
BACKGROUND To determine the safety and efficacy of neoadjuvant gemcitabine/capecitabine followed by surgery for the treatment of locally advanced pancreatic adenocarcinoma (LAPC). METHODS Patients with histologically confirmed LAPC were given 3-6 cycles of fixed-dose rate gemcitabine/capecitabine every 3 weeks. At the end of chemotherapy, patients were(More)
