UNLABELLED The utility of (18)F-FDG PET/CT in patients with nasal-type natural killer (NK)/T-cell lymphoma has not been established. Therefore, we evaluated the role of (18)F-FDG PET/CT for determining cancer staging by comparing its results to those of conventional staging methods (CSMs) (physical examination, CT with intravenous contrast, biopsies from(More)
Mutations in 2 upstream components of the nuclear factor κB (NF-κB) pathway, CD79B and MYD88, are important information for new target therapy in malignant lymphoma. We examined the prevalence and clinicopathologic characteristics of CD79B and MYD88 mutation in a cohort of Asian diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) patients. CD79B and MYD88 mutations were(More)
A 31-year-old Korean male presented with altered consciousness and severe headache. Brain MRI delineated focal leptomeningeal enhancement without any intracerebral lesions. Diagnosis was made based on a brain biopsy showing anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL), immunohistochemical stains revealing positivity for anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) and an(More)
This study was to investigate the association of genetic polymorphisms in complement component 2 (C2), complement factor B (CFB) and complement component 3 (C3) with exudative age-related macular degeneration (AMD) in a Korean population and the gene-gene and gene-environment interactions in the development of AMD. A total of six SNPs that are located in(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the efficacy of raloxifene in preventing bone loss associated with long term gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist (GnRH-a) administration. METHODS Twenty-two premenopausal women with severe endometriosis were treated with leuprolide acetate depot at a dosage of 3.75 mg/4 weeks, for 48 weeks. Bone mineral density (BMD) was(More)
BACKGROUND Immunophenotyping of plasma cell has become an important diagnostic tool for plasma cell myeloma. There have been a few studies for association of antigen expression and cytogenetic abnormality of plasma cell myeloma. METHODS A total of 68 symptomatic/smoldering plasma cell myeloma case were analyzed by multicolor flow cytometry using CD38 and(More)
Live, attenuated Salmonella Typhimurium vaccine candidate expressing BCSP31, Omp3b, and SOD proteins of Brucella abortus was constructed. Thirty BALB/c mice were divided equally into three groups, Group A, were intraperitoneally (IP) inoculated with 100 μl of approximately 1.2 × 10(6) colony-forming units (CFUs)/ml of the Salmonella containing vector only(More)
OBJECTIVES To access the effectiveness of radiofrequency myolysis (RFM) in women with midline dysmenorrhea. METHODS We designed RFM in two ways laparoscopic RFM (LRFM), vaginal ultrasound-guided RFM (URFM). One hundred and thirty-two patients were in the LRFM group and, 140 patients were in the URFM group. RESULTS Upon receipt of surgery, both the LRFM(More)
