Studies conducted in Western countries have reported excess risks for second primary malignancies after breast cancer. However, there is little documentation of ethnic differences in these excess risks. Asian women are characterized by younger age at diagnosis of breast cancer, but very few reports are available on the incidences and risks for second(More)
Fengycin is a cyclic lipopeptidic antibiotic produced nonribosomally by Bacillus subtilis. A fengycin synthetase mutant of B. subtilis F29-3 was generated with Tn917lux, which contains a transposon inserted in a 7716-bp gene, fenD. The mutation can be genetically complemented by transforming a plasmid carrying a wild-type fenD, confirming the participation(More)
This paper presents the design of a monolithically integrated CMOS optical receiver, including a photo detector, a transimpedance amplifier, and a post limiting amplifier on a single chip. A novel PIN detector is proposed and adopted in this design without technology modification. The optical receiver is capable of delivering 420 mV<sub>pp</sub> to 50 Omega(More)
OBJECTIVE Studies conducted in Western countries have reported an increased risk for second primary malignancies after cervical cancer. There is little documentation of ethnic differences in this increased risk, and most of the Asian studies are hospital-based studies with small case numbers. METHODS Using population-based data from the Taiwan Cancer(More)
We employed second-harmonic generation (SHG) imaging and the zebrafish model to investigate the myopathy caused by statin in vivo with emphasis on the altered microstructures of the muscle sarcomere, the fundamental contractile element of muscles. This approach derives an advantage of SHG imaging to observe the striated skeletal muscle of living zebrafish(More)
We employed the techniques of DNA relaxation, DPPH (1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl hydrate), and DMPO (5,5-dimethyl-1-pyrroline-N-oxide)-electron spin resonance (ESR), to study the effects of reactive oxygen species (ROS) suppression by 11 selected C6-C3 phenylpropanoid derivatives under oxidative conditions. We also investigated the effects of the(More)
OBJECTIVES Whole blood or tea was frequently used to stain the teeth for measuring the effectiveness of different bleaching materials. However, the components of blood or tea cannot be quantitatively determined and variability might exist among different brands of tea. The purpose of this study was to develop a reproducible in vitro tooth-staining model to(More)
Intramedullary titanium elastic nails have been reported to fix displaced midclavicular fractures with excellent functional outcomes and minor complications. This study reports and analyzes the complications and technical pitfalls associated with titanium elastic nail fixation of displaced midclavicular fractures and describes how to prevent these problems.(More)
