Ground pork patties were processed from pork hams to achieve fat levels of 10%, 15%, 20%, and 25%, respectively. Each patty was cooked from a thawed state to 75℃ in a microwave oven at full power (700 W). After(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate the clinicopathological characteristics and the survival outcomes of invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC) patients compared to invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC) patients according to their molecular subtype. METHODS We compared the clinicopathological characteristics, breast cancer-specific survival (BCSS) and overall survival (OS)(More)
PURPOSE The combination of gemcitabine and docetaxel (GD) is used to effectively treat patients with soft tissue sarcoma (STS). It is widely considered that the conventional doses used are too high for long term use and many patients must discontinue GD treatment due to its toxicity. Therefore, to determine the appropriate dose meeting acceptable efficacy(More)
Recently, there was growing interest in a gastric spiral-shaped bacterium morphologically deviating from Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori), which was classified as Helicobacter heilmannii (H. heilmannii). It rarely inhabits human species whereas the observation of structurally comparable bacteria in other mammals, including cats and dogs, is a commonplace.(More)
Peripheral blood monocytes from hospitalised patients greater than 60 years of age and less than 35 years, and those from healthy normal controls less than 35 years, were tested for a range of functional and physiological properties, comprising chemotaxis under agarose, the ability to phagocytose and kill Candida albicans, adhesion to glass and spreading on(More)
Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), which may occur as an autosom-al dominant disorder, is caused by the absence of neurofibromin protein due to somatic mutations in the NF1 gene, and it has been associated with an increased risk of breast cancer. Herein we describe a family with two women affected by both NF1 and early-onset breast cancer. We evaluated whether(More)
INTRODUCTION Belotecan (Camtobell, CKD602) is a new camptothecin-derivative antitumor agent that belongs to the topoisomerase inhibitors. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of belotecan monotherapy as a second-line therapy in patients with relapsed or refractory small cell lung cancer (SCLC). METHODS Between June 2008 and August(More)
Background/Aims Because of rarity, role of chemotherapy of bladder adenocarcinoma are still unidentified. Therefore, we performed a retrospective analysis of the clinical features and chemotherapy outcomes of bladder adenocarcinoma. Methods Eligible patients for this retrospective analysis were initially diagnosed with bladder adenocarcinoma and presented(More)
The association between surgical extent and prognosis in papillary thyroid carcinoma originating in the isthmus is unclear. We included 233 patients with early-stage, node-negative papillary thyroid cancer originating in the isthmus; 126 were treated by lobectomy plus isthmusectomy with ipsilateral central neck dissection and 97 were treated by total(More)
