BACKGROUND Several studies have reported that plasma brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels are increased in patients with chronic atrial fibrillation (AF). The objective of this study was to assess the factors influencing plasma BNP levels in patients with chronic AF and preserved left ventricular (LV) systolic function. METHODS Transthoracic(More)
BACKGROUND Up to present, omeprazole plus two antibiotics are used for Helicobacter pylori eradication therapy . Few studies have compared double-dose new-generation, proton pump inhibitors (PPI) with omeprazole. Therefore, we conducted a randomized, prospective study to evaluate differences in H. pylori eradication rates by PPI type. MATERIAL AND METHODS(More)
—A new current-programming pixel circuit for active-matrix organic light-emitting diode (AM-OLED) displays, composed of four organic thin-film transistors (OTFTs) and one capacitor, has been designed, simulated and evaluated. The most critical issue in realizing AM-OLED displays with OTFTs is the variation and aging of the driving-TFTs and degradation of(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The prevalence of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection has been reported to be lower in individuals with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in some Western countries. We investigated H. pylori infection in Korean patients with IBD and any possible associations of H. pylori infection with drug therapy for IBD and the phenotype of Crohns(More)
The keys to good signal integrity in a Graphic DDR3 (GDDR3) SDRAM interface for a bandwidth up to 1.4Gbps/pin are the minimization of input/output pin capacitance and the accurate control of the output data skew. The proposed pre-emphasis output buffer control scheme provides output data skew minimization without an increase of input/output pin capacitance.(More)
