Borna disease virus is a neurotropic negative-strand RNA virus that infects a wide range of vertebrate hosts, causing disturbances in movement and behavior. We have cloned and sequenced the 8910-nucleotide viral genome by using RNA from Borna disease virus particles. The viral genome has complementary 3' and 5' termini and contains antisense information for(More)
We developed a laboratory incident report classification system that can guide reduction of actual and potential adverse events. The system was applied retrospectively to 129 incident reports occurring during a 16-month period. Incidents were classified by type of adverse event (actual or potential), specific and potential patient impact, nature of(More)
OBJECTIVES According to the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, new active tuberculosis (TB) cases have increased since 2001. Some key factors explain and characterize the transmission dynamics of Korean TB infection, such as a higher ratio of latent individuals and a new reporting system implemented in 2001, among others. METHODS We propose(More)
This paper investigates one type of electronic word-of-mouth (eWOM), the online consumer review. The study considers two components of review structure: the type and the number of reviews. Using the cognitive fit theory, we show that the type of reviews can be a key moderating variable to explain the inconsistent relationship between consumer expertise and(More)
A wide range of e-learning modalities are widely integrated in medical education. However, some of the key questions related to the role of e-learning remain unanswered, such as (1) what is an effective approach to integrating technology into pre-clinical vs. clinical training?; (2) what evidence exists regarding the type and format of e-learning technology(More)
This study explores the feasibility of using computer tutorials to train laboratory personnel in Nepal. Training incorporated three software programs that teach microscope-based laboratory tests (peripheral blood smears, urinalysis, Gram stains). Forty-seven participants attended training sessions and completed a questionnaire. The participants' overall(More)
In order to update the design of the next generation of the Digital Anatomist, we have surveyed teaching assistants who have used the Digital Anatomist for learning and teaching anatomy as medical students, and have also examined available anatomy web sites with sufficient content to support learning. The majority of web sites function in an atlas mode and(More)
