BACKGROUND It is well-known that there is a close relationship between metabolic syndrome (MetS) and microalbuminuria. However, some recent studies have found that even normal range albuminuria was associated with MetS and cardiometabolic risk factors. The purpose of this study is to analyze the relationship between MetS and normal range albuminuria and to(More)
BACKGROUND Albuminuria is associated with cardiovascular disease, and the relationship between albuminuria and hypertension is well established in many studies. So the control of hypertension is critical for decreasing cardiovascular events and albuminuria. Obesity and abdominal obesity are also associated with hypertension and albuminuria. Therefore, we(More)
Previous studies suggested that serum gamma-glutamyltransferase (GGT) levels were associated with the prevalence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors including hypertension, diabetes mellitus (DM), and metabolic syndrome (MetS) in the general population. We aimed to investigate the relationship between serum GGT levels and CVD risk factors in Korean(More)
BACKGROUND Ferritin is associated with various cardiometabolic risk factors such as dyslipidemia, hypertension, obesity, and insulin resistance in adults. We aimed to study the association between serum ferritin levels and dyslipidemia in adolescents, because dyslipidemia is considered an important modifiable cardiovascular risk factor in the young.

PHARMACOKINETIC POPULATION MODELING OF NICOTINE INCORPORATING CYP2A6 GENOTYPES FOLLOWING DIFFERENT ROUTES OF ADMINISTRATION. Y. Yoon, MD, PhD, D. Verotta, PhD, N. Benowitz, MD, University of California San Francisco, Inje University (Korea), San Francisco, CA. PURPOSE: We developed a comprehensive population pharmacokinetic (PK) model to quantify the(More)
Horseradish peroxidase (HRP) was immobilized on carboxylated multi-wall carbon nanotubes in the presence of a coupling reagent, 1-ethyl-3-(3-dimethylaminopropyl) carbodiimide. The immobilized HRP maintained its oxidative activity for guaiacol over a broad range of pH values (4–9). An electrode of graphite rod, 6 mm diam. was fabricated using the immobilized(More)
In an earlier study, Pseudomonas putida NCIB 9816-4, which was one of the most studied naphthalene-degrading bacteria, showed the preferred adhesion to the naphthalene-contaminated soil when it was in the exponential growth phase. The adhesion was found to take place through a hydrophobic interaction. We postulated that the surface hydrophobicity of P.(More)
