To determine overall detection rates of lung cancer by low-dose CT (LDCT) screening and to compare histopathologic and imaging differences of detected cancers between high- and low-risk groups, this study included 6,406 asymptomatic Korean adults with >or=45 yr of age who underwent LDCT for lung cancer screening. All were classified into high- (>or=20(More)
The aim of this study is to ascertain the relationship between ingestion of raw cow liver and Toxocara canis infection. A total of 150 apparently healthy adults were divided into 2 groups; 1 group consisted of 86 adults with positive results of Toxocara ELISA, and the other group of 64 adults with negative results. One researcher collected the history of(More)
—A signature-based network intrusion detection sys-tem(NIDS) identifies intrusions by comparing the data traffic with known signature patterns. In this process, matching of packet strings against signature patterns dominates the overall system performance. The MWM algorithm has been known as the fastest pattern matching algorithm when the patterns in a rule(More)
BACKGROUND Varenicline is an effective smoking cessation aid. However, smokers prescribed with varenicline do not always receive varenicline for 12 weeks, as recommended. This study analyzed the subjects who received varenicline and investigated the effect of varenicline treatment duration on the success rate of 6-month smoking cessation. METHODS This(More)
Heart rate (HR) recovery after exercise is a function of vagal reactivation, and its impairment is a predictor of overall mortality and adverse cardiovascular events. While metabolic syndrome is associated with sympathetic overactivity, little is known about the relationship between metabolic syndrome and HR recovery. A symptom-limited exercise stress test(More)
OBJECTIVES The aging process affects responsiveness and other functions of endothelium and vascular smooth muscle cells, predisposing the old vessels to the development of atherosclerotic lesions. Endothelial nitric oxide synthase (ecNOS) gene polymorphisms were shown to affect the occurrence of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). We hypothesized that aging(More)
Local scanning worms Worm containment Worm virulence estimation Maximum likelihood estimation a b s t r a c t A worm-infected host scanning globally may not cause any new infection in its underlying local network before it is detected and quarantined by a worm detector. To defend this type of scanning hosts, a number of worm scanner detection methods such(More)
PURPOSE Continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) is becoming the treatment of choice for supporting critically ill pediatric patients. However, a few studies present have reported CRRT use and outcome in neonates weighing less than 3 kg. The aim of this study is to describe the clinical application, outcome, and complications of CRRT in small neonates.(More)
