BACKGROUND Lactobacillus gasseri BNR17 is a type of probiotic strain isolated from human breast milk. A study was reported regarding the fact that BNR17 was an inhibitor of obesity and diabetic activities in the human body through previous animal experiments. This study was furthered to investigate the effect of BNR17, a probiotic strain isolated from human(More)
This study investigates the inhibitory effects of Korean mistletoe extract (KME) on adipogenic factors in 3T3-L1 cells and obesity and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in mice fed a high-fat diet. Male C57Bl/6 mice fed a high-fat diet were treated with KME (3 g/kg/day) for 15 weeks for the antiobesity and NAFLD experiments. Body weight and daily(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies have revealed that sleep duration is linked to both obesity and hypertension. Here, we evaluated the association between sleep duration and hypertension in obese and non-obese premenopausal women using representative national survey data from the Korean population. METHODS A total of 4,748 subjects over 20 years of age from the(More)
Toxin moiety in immunotoxin (IT) plays an important role in cytotoxicity of target cells. We constructed a recombinant immunotoxin (RIT), which is composed of a recombinant lectin A chain from Korean mistletoe (AKM) and a single-chain Fv (scFv) of an anti-carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) monoclonal antibody. This single-chain IT was expressed in E. coli,(More)
INTRODUCTION To solve unsatisfied homogeneity problem of standard birdcage coil, spiral head coil [1] has been introduced. [2] However, it is critically found that sagittal images obtained using the spiral head coil generate another unwanted effect of darkness at the top of the head image. The darkness of the spiral coil is caused due to the vector(More)
