Changes in the serotonergic nervous system after the intracerebroventricular (i.c.v.) administration of ethylcholine aziridinium (AF64A, 3 nmol/each ventricle) were studied in rats. Two weeks after the infusion of AF64A, the levels of 5-HT and 5-HIAA in microdialysed cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), the levels of total 5-HT and 5-HIAA, the density of serotonin(More)
Although it is widely accepted that exercise is beneficial in patients with end-stage renal disease as in the general population, it is not easy to incorporate exercise programs into routine clinical practice. This review aimed to investigate the beneficial effects of exercise during hemodialysis and also to introduce various intradialytic exercise programs(More)
OBJECTIVE Prediction of influenza incidence among outpatients from an influenza surveillance system is important for public influenza strategy. METHODS We developed two influenza prediction models through influenza surveillance data of the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (each year, each province and metropolitan city; total reported(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Encapsulating peritoneal sclerosis (EPS) is an often-fatal complication of long-term peritoneal dialysis (PD). We here report the clinical features of EPS in Korean PD patients from a single university center. METHODS The data were collected retrospectively from 606 PD patients at Kyungpook National University Hospital, between August 2001(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this retrospective study was to evaluate the efficacy of soft stabilization with an artificial intervertebral ligament after microdecompression for the treatment of grade I degenerative spondylolisthesis. METHODS From a total of 54 patients with degenerative spondylolisthesis who were treated surgically from May 2000 to April(More)

Alpha1-antitrypsin (AAT) exerts its anti-inflammatory effect through regulating the activity of serine proteinases. This study evaluated the inhibitory effects of AAT against the transforming growth factor (TGF)-β1 induced epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in unilateral ureter obstruction (UUO) mice and Madin-Darby canine kidney (MDCK) cells.(More)
Health-related quality of life (HRQOL) is an important clinical outcome for dialysis patients. However, relative superiority in HRQOL between automated peritoneal dialysis (APD) and continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) are not clearly known. We compared HRQOL over time between APD and CAPD patients and evaluated factors associated with HRQOL.All(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Little is known regarding the incidence rate of and factors associated with developing chronic kidney disease after continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) in acute kidney injury (AKI) patients. We investigated renal outcomes and the factors associated with incomplete renal recovery in AKI patients who received CRRT. METHODS Between(More)
BACKGROUND Prealbumin, a sensitive marker for protein-energy status, is also known as an independent risk factor for mortality in hemodialysis patients. We investigated the impact of prealbumin on survival in incident peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. METHODS In total, 136 incident PD patients (mean age, 53.0 ± 15.8 years) between 2002 and 2007 were(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS This study analyzed the risk factors for technique survival in dialysis patients and compared technique survival rates between hemodialysis (HD) and peritoneal dialysis (PD) in a prospective cohort of Korean patients. METHODS A total of 1,042 patients undergoing dialysis from September 2008 to June 2011 were analyzed. The dialysis modality(More)
