Seventy-two children with Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), diagnosed at 11 major teaching hospitals in Taiwan during the period 1986-1990, were studied retrospectively. There were 44 males and 28 females ranging in age from 7 months to 15 years. Preceding events could be traced in 61 patients (85%), including antecedent infection in 59 patients and previous(More)
Pterostilbene, found in grapes and berries, exhibits pleiotropic effects, including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-proliferative activities. This study was conducted to investigate the effect of pterostilbene on liver fibrosis and the potential underlying mechanism for such effect. Sprague-Dawley rats were intraperitoneally given dimethyl(More)
This study reviews our experience in 83 cases of brain abscesses in children diagnosed at seven teaching hospitals during the 10-year period from June 1978 to July 1987. The average age of the patients was 7 years, with 12% of them less than 1 year old. The male-to-female ratio was 1.7:1. Of the brain abscesses, 90.4% were detected by CT brain scan. A total(More)
Pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH) may be a major predictor of pregnancy-associated intracranial hemorrhage (ICH). However, the relationship between PIH and long-term ICH risk is unknown.The objective of the study was to determine the association between PIH and ICH and to identify the predictive risk factors.Patients with newly diagnosed PIH were(More)
INTRODUCTION Invasive procedures including loop electrosurgical excision, cervical conization, and endometrial sampling are often recommended when atypical glandular cells (AGC) are detected on Pap smear with unsatisfactory colposcopy. These invasive procedures may result in patient anxiety, increased medical expense, and increasing the risk of preterm(More)

Full-blown generalized spike and wave patterns in electroencephalogram lasting more than 3 seconds are diagnostically significant, suggesting one of the generalized epileptic syndromes. However, brief (less than 3 seconds) bursts of generalized spike waves activity are often difficult to evaluate the clinical correlations when such bursts are the only(More)
