Aldehyde dehydrogenase-2 (ALDH2) is the main enzyme responsible for acetaldehyde oxidation in ethanol metabolism and also provides protection against oxidative stress. Alpha-lipoic acid (α-LA), a natural dithiol compound with antioxidant properties, has been reported to increase ALDH2 activity in cultured cells. We analyzed the therapeutic efficacy of(More)
Aldehyde dehydrogenase-2 (ALDH2) is a key enzyme of alcohol metabolism, catalyzing the conversion of aldehyde to acetic acid. The G-to-A polymorphism in exon 12 of the ALDH2 gene, which causes Glu-to-Lys substitution at codon 504, has been shown to be an independent risk factor for acute myocardial infarction (AMI). We investigated the possible role of the(More)

This paper reports the roentgenopathologic findings of 100 primary lung carcinomas with cavitation. It was found that formation of carcinomatous cavity was related to the histopathologic classification. The cavity could be formed in four ways: 1. Cancer tissue necrosis. 2. Abscess formation after obstructive infection. 3. Cancer infiltration around the(More)
1. There is considerable evidence regarding the efficacy of statins for the primary and secondary prevention of coronary artery disease (CAD). However, due to lack of sufficient evidence, there is still doubt whether high-dose statin therapy prior to percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is beneficial. In the present study, we performed a meta-analysis(More)
To further explore the diagnostic value of the ratio of--SP/AP (> 0.4) in Ménière's disease, the EcochG results from 70 (76 ears) cases with Ménière's disease were compared to that of 49 cases with sudden hearing loss(SHL), noise induced hearing loss(NIHL), ototoxic hearing loss, and 20 normal hearing person. The effects of different stimulus intensities(More)

122 patients with solitary pulmonary nodular lesions less than 3 cm in diameter admitted to our hospital from 1974 to 1985 are analysed. All lesions were negative by sputum exfoliative cytology and fiberoptic bronchoscopy. As lung cancer could not be excluded, exploratory thoracotomy was performed. They were diagnosed as primary peripheral pulmonary(More)
