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)
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)
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)
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)
Diffuse large B-cell lymphomas (DLBCLs) are clinically heterogeneous and need a biomarker that can predict the outcome of treatments accurately. To assess the prognostic significance of the cell-of-origin type for DLBCLs, we applied the Lymph2Cx assay using a NanoString gene expression platform on formalin-fixed paraffin wax-embedded pretreatment tissues(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)
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)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of orally administered dienogest (DNG) for dysmenorrhea and pelvic pain associated with endometriosis. METHODS For this study we recruited 89 patients with dysmenorrhea and pelvic pain associated with endometriosis diagnosed by laparoscopy. All patients complained of persistent dysmenorrhea and pelvic pain despite surgical(More)
