A simple, rapid screening procedure for determining the relative amounts of pancreatic (P)- and salivary (S)-type amylase in serum is presented, involving incorporation of a selective inhibitor (from wheat-germ) into commercially available BMD Single-Vial Amylase and Beckman Enzymatic Amylase-DS procedures for manual and automated isoamylase measurements.(More)
This high-performance liquid-chromatographic (HPLC) method for simultaneous determination of prednisone and its metabolite, prednisolone, in plasma is a modification of the method of Frey et al. (Clin Chem 1979;25:1944-7). Heparinized plasma (1.0 mL) with 0.1 mL of internal standard solution (11-deoxy-17-hydroxycorticosterone, 2 mg/L) is extracted with 7.0(More)
We evaluated the clinical utility of some recently developed laboratory methods, including total amylase by three methods; isoamylase by inhibition and isoelectric focusing; lipase by pH-Stat and turbidimetry; and immunoreactive trypsin. All methods correlated highly positively with hyperamylasemia due to primary acute pancreatitis. Pancreatic-type(More)
Thymic carcinoma is a rare but lethal mediastinal cancer. The optimal treatment for advanced thymic carcinoma is not yet established. This report is the first known of stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (sabr) with CyberKnife (Accuray, Sunnyvale, CA, U.S.A.) as definitive therapy for thymic carcinoma. The patient, a 70-year-old woman with thymic carcinoma,(More)
This study aims to investigate Taiwanese EFL college students’ perceptions of the potentials of computer games for language learning. The participants are required to play two selected video games, Sid Meier’s Pirates and Telltale Sam & Max in the researcher’s computer assisted language learning class. To elicit(More)
BACKGROUND Relationships between the neighborhood environment and children's physical activity have been well documented in Western countries but are less investigated in ultra-dense Asian cities. The aim of this study was to identify the environmental facilitators and barriers of physical activity behaviors among Hong Kong Chinese children using nominal(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of fundamental movement skills (FMS) training on FMS proficiency, self-perceived physical competence (SPC), physical activity (PA), and sleep disturbance in children with developmental coordination disorder (DCD) compared with children with typical development (TD). A total of 84 children were allocated(More)
