Performance Evaluation of the OraQuick Hepatitis C Virus Rapid Antibody Test
Background A reliable rapid assay for hepatitis C virus (HCV) may be helpful in various clinical settings. We evaluated the performance of the OraQuick HCV Rapid Antibody Test (OraSure TechnologiesExpand
Effect of the Cox maze procedure on the secretion of atrial natriuretic peptide.
OBJECTIVES The Cox maze procedure has been confirmed to be effective in curing atrial fibrillation. Some authors have reported severe fluid retention after the Cox maze procedure and have suggestedExpand
Knowledge and attitudes of Korean dentists towards human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immune deficiency syndrome
Purpose Infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) remains a major global threat, and although the prevalence is comparatively still very low, the number of HIV-positive Koreans is increasing.Expand
Development of Acute Megakaryoblastic Leukemia with Isochromosome (12p) after a Primary Mediastinal Germ Cell Tumor in Korea
The association of hematological malignancies with a mediastinal germ cell tumor (GCT) is very rare. We report one case of a young adult male with primary mediastinal GCT who subsequently developedExpand
Multiplex diagnosis of viral infectious diseases (AIDS, hepatitis C, and hepatitis A) based on point of care lateral flow assay using engineered proteinticles.
Lateral flow assay (LFA) is an attractive method for rapid, simple, and cost-effective point of care diagnosis. For LFA-based multiplex diagnosis of three viral intractable diseases (acquired immuneExpand
High Prevalence of Multiple Strain Colonization of Helicobacter pylori in Korean Patients: DNA Diversity Among Clinical Isolates from the Gastric Corpus, Antrum and Duodenum
Background : The aims of our study were to determine the correlation of the strain variation and degree of homogeneity of infecting Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) with their disease outcomes, andExpand
DICOM-based intravascular ultrasound signal intensity analysis: an Echoplaque Medical Imaging Bench study
BackgroundMost intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) data are stored digitally using the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) standard. This allows random access to studies and improvesExpand
Prevalence of Helicobacter pylori Infection in Patients with Peptic Ulcer Diseases and Non-Ulcer Dyspepsia
Background: Helicobacter pylori is known to be a cause of active chronic gastritis and has been proposed as an etiologic factor in the development of peptic ulcer disease, but controversy continuesExpand
[Evaluation of indigenously manufactured immunochromatographic assay systems for rapid detection of hepatitis B surface antigen and antibody.].
BACKGROUND We evaluated three indigenously produced immunochromatography (ICA) kits for the rapid detection of hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) and antibody to HBsAg (anti-HBs) by comparing themExpand
Comparison of HPV genotyping assays and Hybrid Capture 2 for detection of high-risk HPV in cervical specimens.
High-risk types of human papillomavirus (HR-HPV) are among the primary causes of cervical cancers. Hybrid Capture 2 (HC-II) (Digene, Gaithersburg, MD), which detects 13 HR-HPVs as a group, is theExpand
