Recent genetic studies at the 5' end of the dopamine D4 receptor (DRD4) gene have identified several polymorphisms having a possible relationship with attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). This study examined the association between the -521 and -376 promoter single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of the DRD4 gene and ADHD through a case-control(More)
5-HT2C receptor gene is viewed as an important candidate gene in pharmacogenetic studies of antipsychotic drug-induced weight gain. However, inconsistent results have been obtained in different populations. We investigated the association between the -759C/T polymorphism of the 5-HT2C receptor gene with early phase (after 4 weeks of treatment) weight gain(More)
Recent studies showing the improvement of ADHD symptoms obtained with the highly selective noradrenergic reuptake inhibitor, atomoxetine, demonstrate that the noradrenergic system plays the role of pathophysiology in this disorder. It is revealed that the norepinephrine transporter gene (SLC6A2) is a possible candidate gene directly related to ADHD. To(More)
The 3D-printed boluses were used during the radiation therapy of the chest wall in six patients with breast cancer after modified radical mastectomy (MRM). We measured the in-vivo skin doses while both conventional and 3D-printed boluses were placed on the chest wall and compared the mean doses delivered to the ipsilateral lung and the heart. The(More)
There are several widely used combinations of angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB)/thiazide. The complimentary mechanism of action for such anti-hypertensive therapies is that, while ARB inhibits the vasoconstricting and aldosterone-secreting effects of angiotensin II, hydrochlorothiazide affects the renal tubular mechanisms of electrolyte reabsorption and(More)
