BACKGROUND Low body weight was one of the risk factors of osteoporosis. Little is known about the correlation between body weight change and bone mineral density (BMD) in Korean women. Therefore, this study was designed to reveal the impact of body weight change on BMD of the lumbar spine in perimenopausal women. METHODS 105 healthy perimenopausal women(More)
Using monoclonal antibody specific to rat carbonic anhydrase isozyme VI (CA VI), the isozyme was localized in the lacrimal gland. A minority of acini (less than 10% of the total) contained a few immunoreactive acinar cells. Enzyme histochemistry indicated that the CA VI-positive cells were the only cells possessing CA in the lacrimal acini. In the acinar(More)
Qigong is a complementary intervention for preventing and curing disease, and protecting and improving health through regulation of body and mind. Recently, we have been studying the psychoneuroimmunological effects of Qigong on the promotion of health. However, there are not many studies on the therapeutic efficacy of Qigong on various symptoms in Korea,(More)
Using routinely processed, paraffin-embedded tissue specimens, osteoclast-like giant cells in giant cell tumour of bone (GCT), chondroblastoma, osteoblastoma and osteoblastic osteosarcoma were examined histochemically for osteoclast-specific enzymes tartrateresistant acid phosphatase (TRAP) and carbonic anhydrase isoenzyme II (CA-II). Osteoclast-like giant(More)
Grid codes in many countries require low-voltage ride-through (LVRT) capability to maintain power system stability and reliability during grid fault conditions. To meet the LVRT requirement, wind power systems must stay connected to the grid and also supply reactive currents to the grid to support the recovery from fault voltages. This paper presents a new(More)
We investigated the efficacy of Qi therapy as a non-pharmacological treatment for various symptoms presented by Korean combat veterans of the Vietnam War with Agent Orange Sequelae. Nine subjects volunteered to receive 30 minutes of Qi therapy, twice per day for 7 days. There was marked improvement in 89% of the patients with impaired physical activity, 86%(More)
PURPOSE It is hypothesized that robotic gastrectomy may surpass laparoscopic gastrectomy after the operators acquire long-term experience and skills in the manipulation of robotic arms. This study aimed to evaluate the long-term learning curve of robotic distal gastrectomy (RDG) for gastric cancer compared with laparoscopic distal gastrectomy (LDG). (More)
