CYP1A2, CYP2D6 and N-acetyltransferase activities were estimated in 100 patients with bladder cancer and 84 control subjects from measurements of theophylline, metoprolol and isoniazid and their metabolites in urine, respectively. The frequency of occurrence of slow acetylators of isoniazid and poor metabolizers of metoprolol were 16.7% and 1.2% in the(More)
This study investigated the effectiveness of massive multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG)-based (massive multiplayer online role-playing game) instruction in elementary English education. The effectiveness of the MMORPG program was compared with face-to-face instruction and the independent variables (gender, prior knowledge, motivation for learning(More)
A Bayesian method is used to see whether there are changes of mean, covariance, or both at an unknown time point in a sequence of independent multivariate normal observations. Noninformative priors are used for all competing models: no-change model, mean change model, covariance change model, and mean and covariance change model. We use several versions of(More)
To determine the contribution of metoclopramide to the efficacy of ondansetron in control of cisplatin-induced emesis, ondansetron was compared with ondansetron plus metoclopramide for antiemetic efficacy in a randomized double-blind trial. Enrolled 66 patients were treated with cisplatin(60mg/m2) in combination with etoposide, flourouracil, or vinblastine,(More)
Apolipoprotein E (apo E) plays a role in the regulation of the lipid metabolism of humans. Apo E, 229 amino acid polypeptide, is classified into three major isoform (E2, E3, E4) according to the differences of amino acid in position 112 and 158. In the normal population apo E3 isoform is most prevalent and apo E2 or E4 is frequently associated with(More)
The present study was aimed at examining the regulation of aquaporin (AQP)-2 water channels in the kidney in two-kidney, one clip (2K1C) hypertension. Rats were made 2K1C hypertensive for 6 weeks, and their expression of AQP2 channel proteins was determined in the clipped and contralateral kidneys. To examine the upstream affecting AQP2 channels, adenylyl(More)
Most Korean patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) have been reported not to be obese, and many of them lost weight significantly during the course of their disease. In this regard, a retrospective cohort study was conducted to determine the relationship between body mass index (BMI, kg/m2) and the risk for NIDDM among Koreans.(More)

Veno-occlusive disease (VOD) of the liver is a clinical syndrome characterized by hyperbilirubinemia, painful hepatomegaly, and fluid retention. In the bone marrow transplantation (BMT) setting, VOD is caused by dose-intensive chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy used to prepare patients for transplant. VOD occurs in up to 50% of the patients who undergo BMT(More)
