RATIONALE Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is caused by alterations in expression of proteins involved in multiple pathways, including matrix deposition, inflammation, injury, and repair. OBJECTIVES To understand the pathogenic changes in lung protein expression in IPF and to evaluate apolipoprotein (Apo) A-I as a candidate therapeutic molecule. (More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Metformin use has been associated with decreased colorectal cancer risk and mortality among diabetic patients. Recent research suggests that metformin use may decrease the incidence of colorectal adenomas in diabetic patients with previous colorectal cancer. This study aimed to assess the clinical effect of metformin use on the development(More)
Mean platelet volume (MPV) has been actively investigated in liver disease such as steatosis, cirrhosis and hepatitis. Recently, MPV/platelet count (PC) ratio has been proposed as a predictor of long-term mortality after myocardial infarction. As PC is known to be decreased in various liver diseases such as cirrhosis, hepatosplenomegaly and malignancy, we(More)
To the Editor Creatinine (Cr) is the most popular renal marker; however, age and muscle mass dependency limits its use in measuring renal function in pediatrics [1]. In contrast to Cr, cystatin C (CysC) is less influenced by muscle mass, gender or age than Cr, and is known to be a superior marker than Cr for assessing glomerular function in children [2].(More)
A wide range of phenotypes have been reported in autosomal recessive (AR) Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) patients carrying mutations in the ganglioside-induced differentiation-associated protein 1 (GDAP1) gene, such as axonal, demyelinating, and intermediate forms of AR CMT. There have been very few reports of GDAP1 mutations in autosomal dominant (AD)(More)
We report two childhood cases of acute leukemia with t(16;21)(p11.2;q22) and FUS-ERG rearrangements. Patient 1 (14 years old) was initially diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. Chromosome study showed a t(16;21)(p11.2;q22) clone in more than one third of the cells analyzed, and further investigation with reverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reaction,(More)
Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) is classified into demyelinating neuropathy (CMT1) and axonal neuropathy (CMT2). Mutations in the neurofilament light chain polypeptide (NEFL) gene are present in CMT2E and CMT1F neuropathies. Two types of Pro22 mutations have been previously reported: Pro22Ser in CMT2E with giant axons, and Pro22Thr in CMT1F. In this(More)
