We examined allelic polymorphisms of the serotonin transporter (5-HTT) gene and antidepressant response to 6 weeks' treatment with the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) drugs fluoxetine or paroxetine. We genotyped 120 patients and 252 normal controls, using polymerase chain reaction of genomic DNA with primers flanking the second intron and(More)
We examined the potential associations between PvuII and XbaI polymorphisms in the first intron of the estrogen receptor alpha (ER-α) gene and bone mineral density (BMD) in a population-based study of 174 postmenopausal Korean women. BMD was measured at the lumbar spine (L2–L4), right femoral neck, right trochanter, and right Ward’s triangle. ER-α gene(More)
Fifty-one women (29 to 75 years of age) with 55 cancers (ductal carcinoma in situ [DCIS] or ductal carcinoma in situ with microinvasion [DCISM] were studied by comparing biopsy specimens with mastectomy specimens. Presentation, histologic type, nuclear grade, microscopic duct counts, multicentricity, and microinvasion were correlated. Forty-seven percent of(More)
1. The authors investigated the candidate neuroanatomic substrates underlying delusional thought disorder in old-aged depressed patients by using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and examined the relationship between volumes for individual brain structures and clinical correlates of particular relevance to depression: executive cognitive impairment and(More)
