AIMS/HYPOTHESIS Most genetic variants identified for type 2 diabetes have been discovered in European populations. We performed genome-wide association studies (GWAS) in a Chinese population with the aim of identifying novel variants for type 2 diabetes in Asians. METHODS We performed a meta-analysis of three GWAS comprising 684 patients with type 2(More)
We performed this study to investigate the possible association between vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene polymorphism and the focal bone erosion in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients in Korea. One hundred and fifty-seven RA patients were enrolled and two control groups were selected. The focal bone erosion score was assessed by modified Sharp's method.(More)
Retroperitoneal fibrosis is a rare disease characterized by the formation of dense plaque of fibrous tissue covering the retroperitoneal structures. This disease is commonly presented as ureteral obstruction, but the involvement of duodenum is rare. We report a case of retroperitoneal fibrosis which was complicated with duodenal stenosis and was(More)
The thromboembolic complications of nephrotic syndrome are reasonably common, including spontaneous peripheral venous and/or arterial, pulmonary arterial, and renal venous occlusions. However, in comparison to the relatively high incidence of the venous thromboembolic complications with hypercoagulable status, arterial thromboses have been reported much(More)
The agricultural transition profoundly changed human societies. We sequenced and analysed the first genome (1.39x) of an early Neolithic woman from Ganj Dareh, in the Zagros Mountains of Iran, a site with early evidence for an economy based on goat herding, ca. 10,000 BP. We show that Western Iran was inhabited by a population genetically most similar to(More)
We report on universality in boundary domain growth in cluster aggregation in the limit of maximum concentration. Maximal concentration means that the diffusivity of the clusters is effectively zero and, instead, clusters merge successively in a percolation process, which leads to a sudden growth of the boundary domains. For two-dimensional square lattices(More)
Tooth isolation is a very important pre-processing step for both computer-aided dental diagnosis and automatic dental identification systems. The accuracy of tooth isolation will directly affect the accuracy of feature extraction and thereby the final results of both types of systems. This paper presents a very effective and fully automatic tooth isolation(More)
This study was designed to determine the effectiveness of electrical stimulation over the trunk in improving sitting balance in young children with spastic diplegic cerebral palsy who displayed poor trunk control. The subjects ranged in age from 8 to 16 months and were randomly assigned to two groups. Both group had physical therapy for 6 weeks. Electrical(More)
