To facilitate future decisions regarding the usefulness of rotavirus vaccines in the Republic of Korea, active surveillance was conducted in a network of clinics, emergency departments, and hospitals serving Jeongeub District, Korea. Children with diarrhea underwent standard clinical evaluations, and stool specimens were collected to test for the presence(More)
BACKGROUND In a previous study, the authors described an adjuvant pressure therapy using magnets for the management of ear keloids. The purpose of the present study was to build on this previous study by expanding the cohort of patients, evaluating treatment outcomes by means of a prospective study and identifying risk factors for recurrent ear keloids.

OBJECTIVE The aims were (1) to determine whether thrombin, which is increased in the presence of coronary thrombosis, can directly stimulate the production of lysophosphatidylcholine, which has arrhythmogenic properties, in ventricular myocytes; (2) whether the effect is dependent upon extracellular [Ca2+]; and (3) whether it is mediated directly through(More)
Recent evidence indicates that factors involved in the activation of the coagulation system eliciting an intracoronary thrombus may contribute importantly to arrhythmogenesis during acute myocardial ischemia. In the present study, the influence of the thrombin receptor activating peptide, SFLLRNPNDKYEPF (SFLL), on intracellular Na+ ([Na+]i) and tissue(More)
Elastic neutron-scattering, inelastic x-ray scattering, specific-heat, and pressure-dependent electrical transport measurements have been made on single crystals of AuZn and Au0.52Zn0.48. Elastic neutron scattering detects new commensurate Bragg peaks (modulation) appearing at Q =(1.33,0.67,0) at temperatures corresponding to each sample's transition(More)
The physiopathogenesis of keloid scars is not well understood. This report aims to present the authors’ experiences with facial keloids, to evaluate their treatment outcomes via a prospective study, and to identify risk factors involved in facial keloid recurrence. Patients with facial keloids were treated with surgical excision followed by intra- and(More)
BACKGROUND A previous study described the outcomes of a treatment protocol using a prospective design and identified three clinical risk factors for recurrent keloids. OBJECTIVE To introduce a novel classification of earlobe keloids through a retrospective study and describe the appropriate surgical methods according to this new classification. METHODS(More)
Tacrine (THA; 1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-9-aminoacridine) is an anticholinesterase agent which has been used clinically, most recently in the treatment of Alzheimer-type dementias. This paper describes the methodology for the isolation and quantitation of THA at therapeutic levels in serum from human subjects. Using C18 Bond Elut columns and an HPLC/fluorometry(More)
Keloid formation is one of the most challenging clinical problems in wound healing. With increasing frequency of open heart surgery, chest keloid formations are not infrequent in the clinical practice. The numerous treatment methods including surgical excision, intralesional steroid injection, radiation therapy, laser therapy, silicone gel sheeting, and(More)
Recently, rhinoplasty techniques have advanced significantly and are frequently combined with columellar struts using conchal cartilage grafts to sufficiently reshape the nasal tip. For this reason, auricular keloids following harvesting of conchal cartilage grafts are expected to occur with greater frequency. The aim of this study was to share our(More)
