Both systemic lupus erythematosus and Sjogren's syndrome are autoimmune diseases. Almost all organs can be involved but the gall bladder is an unusual site. We report a 39-year-old woman with systemic lupus erythematosus and Sjogren's syndrome presenting with acute acalculous cholecystitis. It is a very rare complication and, in the literature review,(More)
The use of silver in the past demonstrated the certain antimicrobial activity, though this has been replaced by other treatments. However, nanotechnology has provided a way of producing pure silver nanoparticles, and it shows cytoprotective activities and possible pro-healing properties. But, the mechanism of silver nanoparticles remains unknown. This study(More)
Polymyositis is a rare complication of interferon alpha treatment as a result of immune-modulating role of the drug itself. In this case, interferon alpha induced polymyositis and cardiomyopathy is diagnosed in a 33-yr-old male patient with history of chronic hepatitis B. To treat hepatitis B, interferon alpha was administered until the proximal muscle(More)
The aim of the study was to evaluate the prevalence of restrictive ventilatory defect and to determine the risk factors in subjects with spirometrically-defined restrictive ventilatory defect. We used the population-based, fourth-2, 3 (2008, 2009) and fifth (2010-2012) Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (KNHANES) to analyze 15,073(More)
The tissue mimicking quality of tofu has been evaluated in terms of acoustic properties and acousto/thermal conversion as functions of frequency and diffraction corrected intensity over the 2 MHz to 18 MHz range using three unfocussed transducers with center frequencies of 5 MHz, 10 MHz and 15 MHz. The density and acoustic velocity were close to the(More)
Molecules associated with tumor invasion and metastasis have been actively investigated, but their prognostic significance has been variously reported by investigators. We evaluated the expression of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-1, MMP-2, MMP-3, MMP-9, MMP-10, tissue inhibitor of MMPs (TIMP)-1, TIMP-2, β-catenin, E-cadherin and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) in(More)
The anti-inflammatory action of silver nanoparticles (NPs) has been reported in a murine model of asthma in a previous study. But more specific mechanisms of silver NPs in an attenuation of allergic airway inflammation have not yet been established. Vascular and mucous changes are believed to contribute largely in pathophysiology in asthma. Among various(More)
BACKGROUND Irinotecan has been introduced to improve the treatment of small-cell lung cancer (SCLC). We conducted a trial involving a 3-week schedule of irinotecan combined with cisplatin (IP) to validate the efficacy and toxicity of this regimen in patients with previously untreated extensive-stage SCLC (ES-SCLC). PATIENTS AND METHODS Twenty-eight(More)
A 20-year-old man presented to our outpatient clinic with hemoptysis, cough, and pleuritic chest pain. His chest radiograph and pulmonary function tests (PFT) were normal. A bronchoscopy showed a small yellowish patch with a regular surface. A direct bronchoscopic biopsy was performed. The pathologic findings showed a benign granular cell tumor. The(More)

Spontaneous regression of malignant tumors is rare especially of lung tumor and biological mechanism of such remission has not been addressed. We report the case of a 79-year-old Korean patient with non-small cell lung cancer, squamous cell cancer with a right hilar tumor and multiple lymph nodes, lung to lung metastasis that spontaneously regressed without(More)
