Bacterial meningitis remains a serious cause of morbidity and mortality in childhood. Epidemiologic investigations have shown variability in disease risks among different populations and races. In Korea, however, basic epidemiologic information on bacterial meningitis in children is limited. The main purpose of this study was to analyze bacteriologically(More)
To characterize the radiation-enhancing effects on human cancer cells and underlying mechanisms of celecoxib, a cyclooxygenase (COX)-2 selective inhibitor, and to ascertain whether its effects are COX-2 dependent. Clonogenic cytotoxicity assays and radiation survival assays after treatment with celecoxib +/- radiation were done on four human cancer cell(More)
We investigated the expression of CD99 in 35 hyperplastic perigastric lymph nodes, which were resected for gastric carcinoma or chronic peptic ulcer. Essentially, all lymphocytes in lymph nodes expressed CD99, but there were two populations with respect to the intensity of CD99 expression--CD99high and CD99low cells. We showed CD99high cells were(More)
To investigate genes regulated by COX-2 or a COX-2 specific inhibitor, celecoxib, in irradiated cancer cells, we analyzed changes in gene expression using complementary DNA microarray following celecoxib or combined celecoxib and ionizing radiation (IR) treatment in a stable COX-2 knockdown A549 (AS) and a mock cell line (AN). Thirty-six genes were(More)
Advanced gastric cancer is one of the most aggressive gastrointestinal malignancies, and ADAM (A disintegrin and metalloproteinase)-9 is a cell-surface membrane glycoprotein with oncogenic properties that is overexpressed in several cancers. Herein, we investigated the biologic mechanism of ADAM9 in the progression, proliferation, and invasion of gastric(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the dietary effects of persimmon peel (PP) and PP ethanol extract (PPE) on egg production, egg quality, and liver lipids in the late stage of egg production in laying hens. One hundred and twenty 50-wk-old Hy-Line Brown layers (n = 120) were fed different diets. Four replicate groups of 6 hens each were randomly(More)
PURPOSE This study was conducted to evaluate the biological features of murine hepatocarcinoma according to different tumor microenvironmental models and to determine the change in molecular and immunologic responses after radiation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Tumor models were established in the liver (orthotopic) and thigh (heterotopic) of male C3H/HeN mice.(More)
As an angiogenic factor, thymidine phosphorylase (TP) expression in primary tumours has been thought to be a risk factor for lymph node (LN) and hepatic metastasis in patients with gastric adenocarcinoma. However, the molecular basis for the induction of metastasis by TP is largely unknown. We aim to elucidate the role of TP expression in gastric cancer(More)
BACKGROUND Radiotherapy (RT) is one of the major non-operative treatment modalities for treating lung cancer. Tomotherapy is an advanced type of intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) in which radiation may be delivered in a helical fashion. However, unexpected pneumonitis may occur in patients treated with tomotherapy, especially in combination with(More)
