The medical records of 142 patients with cystic fibrosis were reviewed. The patient group included 78 males and 64 females; three patients were black. Periods of observation ranged from two to 25 years (mean, 14.5 years). The analysis focused on clinical evaluation at age 18 years and included information gained at an earlier age. Evaluation at age 18 years(More)
AIMS We aimed to investigate the clinical significance of GPx3 in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and to characterize its tumor suppressive role. METHODS HCC patients (113) who underwent hepatectomy were recruited to examine the clinical relevance of GPx3. The tumor suppressive role of GPx3 was studied by administration of recombinant GPx3 (rGPx3) or(More)
Omics technologies are increasingly being used to monitor organismal responses to environmental stressors. Previous studies have shown that species identification, an appreciation of life history traits, and organism phenotype (e.g., gender) are essential for the accurate interpretation of omics data from field samples. As marine mussels are increasingly(More)
Chemoresistance is one of the major obstacles in systemic chemotherapy and targeted therapy for patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma. To identify novel chemoresistance-associated targets in hepatocellular carcinoma, chemoresistant hepatocellular carcinoma cell lines were established. By comparing the global gene expression profiles between(More)
A new sweat test (CF Indicator; Medtronic, Inc.) for cystic fibrosis (CF) features a compact, portable configuration of electrodes that dispense pilocarpine for iontophoresis. A disposable chloride sensor patch absorbs a specified volume of sweat, in which the chloride concentration is immediately determined as less than 40, 40-60, or greater than 60(More)
This article evaluates a recently developed qualitative sweat patch test (SPT). A battery-powered stimulator with polymer pad electrodes is used to stimulate sweating, followed by the application of a paper patch which collects the sweat and shows color change on sweat chloride levels above 40 to 50 mEq/l. Our data consist of 66 patients with cystic(More)

BACKGROUND AND AIMS Our previous study showed that small-for-size liver graft may provide favorable micro-environment for tumor growth. GPx3, an anti-oxidant, not only attenuates oxidative stress, but also suppresses liver tumor growth in our recent study. Here, we aimed to characterize the clinical significance and explore the functional role of GPx3 in(More)
