BACKGROUND/AIMS The aims of this study were (1) to identify the useful clinical parameters of noninvasive approach for distinguishing nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) from nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), and (2) to determine whether the levels of the identified parameters are correlated with the severity of liver injury in patients with NASH.(More)
The purpose of this investigation was to assess the possible use of algicidal bacteria in conjunction with an immobilization technique for efficient termination of natural blooms of Stephanodiscus concomitant with minimization of adverse effects caused by a single application of bacteria. The performance of Pseudomonas fluorescens cells immobilized on(More)
In recent decades, harmful algal blooms (HABs) - commonly known as red tides - have increasingly impacted human health, caused significant economic losses to fisheries and damaged coastal environments and ecosystems. Here, we demonstrate a method to control and suppress HABs through selective algal lysis. The approach harnesses the algicidal effects of(More)
High-resolution 16S rRNA tag pyrosequencing was used to obtain seasonal snapshots of the bacterial diversity and community structure at two locations in Gosung Bay (South Sea, Korea) over a one year period. Seasonal sampling from the water column at each site revealed highly diverse bacterial communities containing up to 900 estimated Operational Taxonomic(More)
Aspergillus causes a variety of clinical syndromes in the lung including tracheobronchial aspergillosis, invasive aspergillosis, chronic necrotizing pulmonary aspergillosis, allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, and aspergilloma. Aspergilloma usually results from ingrowths of colonized Aspergillus in damaged bronchial tree, pulmonary cyst or cavities of(More)
Culture experiments involving 23 algae strains were conducted to evaluate the algicidal effects of a newly developed algicidal thiazolidinedione (TD) derivative (TD49) on non-harmful and harmful algal bloom (HAB) species. We also assessed the effect of various concentrations of TD49 on various growth phases (lag, logarithmic, and stationary) of the harmful(More)
We investigated the ecological responses with a focus on the diversity of bacterioplankton communities with regard to the effects of artificial clay (Ca-aminoclay) on suppressing harmful algal bloom species (HABs) of Cochlodinium polykrikoides in indoor microcosms. The Ca-aminoclay induced cell lysis in the HABs within a few minutes, but had negligible(More)
The aim of the study was to determine the activity of an immobilized algicidal bacterium, Pseudomonas fluorescens HYK0210-SK09 (SK09), against blooms of the diatom Stephanodiscus hantzschii and to characterize its effect in an ecosystem. To this end, SK09 cells that had been immobilized using an activated carbon polyvinyl alcohol sponge (APVAS) were tested(More)
