Recently, the -160 C/A polymorphism, located within the regulatory region of Ecadherin promoter, has been shown to influence E-cadherin transcription by altering transcription factor binding. We examined the effect of this polymorphism on risk of gastric cancer and on histological classification of intestinal- and diffuse-type gastric cancer in 146 normal(More)
We analyzed 12 ovarian epithelial tumors using 2D PAGE-based comparative proteomics to construct intra- and inter-tumoral distance map trees and to discover surrogate biomarkers indicative of an ovarian tumor. The analysis was performed after laser microdissection of 12 fresh-frozen tissue samples, including 4 serous, 5 mucinous, and 3 endometrioid tumors,(More)
The aim of this study was to determine whether a single nucleotide polymorphism at G473A (rs1800449) within the LOX-propeptide is associated with susceptibility to gastric cancer. We investigated the genotype and allele frequencies of this gene in tissue specimens from 458 gastric cancer patients and 282 healthy individuals. Polymorphism analysis was(More)

It is unknown whether the use of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) guidance during percutaneous coronary intervention can attenuate the stent length effect on clinical outcomes. The aim of the present study was to determine the differential prognostic effect of IVUS according to the implanted stent length. We enrolled 3,244 consecutive patients from the(More)
BACKGROUND Smoking is one of well known environmental factors causing endothelial dysfunction and plays important role in the atherosclerosis. We investigated the effect of cilostazol could improve the endothelial dysfunction in smokers with the measurement of flow-mediated dilatation (FMD). METHODS We enrolled 10 normal healthy male persons and 20 male(More)
The potassium channels are ubiquitous multisubunit membrane proteins, and potassium-dependent alterations in the membrane potential play an important role in the proliferation of many types of cells. This study analyzed the mutation, allelic loss and expression patterns of the KCNRG gene in 77 HCCs in order to determine if the KCNRG gene, which encodes the(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to assess the long-term prognostic value of the global longitudinal strain of the right ventricle (GLSRV) in patients with inferior ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) who underwent primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). BACKGROUND RV systolic dysfunction is an important prognostic factor in(More)
OBJECTIVES This study sought to evaluate the association between newly revealed abnormal ankle-brachial index (ABI) and clinical outcomes in patients with significant coronary artery stenosis. BACKGROUND Little is known about the prevalence and clinical implications of ABI in patients with no claudication or previous history of peripheral artery disease(More)
There are no practical criteria for the use of triple antiplatelet therapy after drug-eluting stent (DES) implantation. In our present report, pooled analysis of 3 randomized studies in patients with diabetes mellitus (Drug-Eluting Stenting Followed by Cilostazol treatment reduces LAte Restenosis in patients with diabetes mellitus trial) and long coronary(More)
Transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) regulates many cellular processes, including cellular proliferation and differentiation. Disruption of the TGF-beta signaling pathway can lead to cancer. Serine-threonine receptor kinase-associated protein (STRAP), an inhibitor of TGF-beta signaling, is an important regulator of cell proliferation. Here, in order(More)
