Treatment of AR requires a stepwise approach depending on the severity and duration of symptoms. Treatment options for AR consist of allergen avoidance, pharmacotherapy, immunotherapy and surgery. For the mechanisms of AR, anti-IgE antibody and specific antibody to cytokines such as IL-4 or IL-5 that correlate with allergic inflammation have recently(More)
OBJECTIVE The study aimed to investigate the efficacy and adverse effects of sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) of dust mite drops to allergic rhinitis with mite allergy. The compliance and satisfaction of SLIT were also assessed. METHOD One hundred and three patients of allergic rhinitis sensitive to dust mites were treated with SLIT for 6 months or more.(More)
OBJECTIVES Malignancies arising from the sinonasal tract, which includes the nose, paranasal sinuses, and nasopharynx, are uncommon. Although adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) is the second most common cancer occurring in the sinonasal tract, only few studies have been reported. This retrospective review was performed to identify the clinical features and(More)
Genetic improvement in growth rate and feed efficiency has allowed modern broilers to reach market weight in a shorter period of time. However, selection for these economically important traits has been accompanied by an increase in the number of problems encountered during production, including obesity, ascites, sudden death syndrome and leg abnormalities(More)
The study was undertaken to assess dietary CP and ME concentrations for optimum growth performance and carcass characteristics of goslings. In a 5 x 3 factorial arrangement, 360 one-day-old commercial generation Huoyan goslings were randomly assigned to experimental diets with 10.87, 11.37, 11.87, 12.37, and 12.87 MJ of ME/kg of diet; each contained 15.0,(More)
Neurospheres are potentially good tools to study olfactory neurogenesis. For this purpose, it is necessary to characterize neurospheres derived from the olfactory system. This study is aimed at identifying the regional difference of cellular composition within neurospheres derived from the adult mouse olfactory bulb, and studying whether these(More)
PURPOSE There is growing evidence that nasal airway remodeling occurs in allergic rhinitis (AR). Although angiogenesis is an important component of airway remodeling in asthma, its involvement in AR has been little studied. Furthermore, information regarding the role of potent angiogenic factors, such as vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and(More)
OBJECTIVES The internet has become an important source of medical information and a great amount of information related to allergic rhinitis (AR) is available on the internet. However, the quality of this information is still a matter of debate. Therefore, this study was conducted to assess the AR-related information on Korean websites. METHODS The key(More)
CONCLUSION We have developed a simple, reliable method for the simultaneous determination of the ciliary wave disorder (CWD) and ciliary beat frequency (CBF) of actively beating cilia. OBJECTIVE The CBF and the directions of beating cilia are two important components of mucociliary transport. Although lots of studies have been performed on the measurement(More)
