Nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-kappaB) is a transcription factor critical for key cellular processes, including immune response, apoptosis, and cell cycle progression. A yeast two-hybrid screening, using the Rel homology domain (RHD) of the p65 subunit (RelA) of NF-kappaB as bait, led to the isolation of PIAS3, previously identified as a specific inhibitor of(More)
BACKGROUND Intraocular cytomegalovirus (CMV) infections, including endotheliitis and retinitis, have been reported to threaten the host's vision. These infections have been treated with systemic or intravitreal GCV injection. Intracameral GCV injection can be an effective treatment option that avoids systemic side effects. The cytotoxic effect of(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the efficacy of optokinetic nystagmus (OKN) suppression and induction methods for the objective estimation of visual acuities in patients with various ocular diseases. DESIGN Prospective, descriptive study. METHODS One hundred seventy-three eyes of 89 patients aged between 27 and 75 years who registered at our institution from(More)
AIM To evaluate the efficacy and complications of stereotactic body radiotherapy in localized paraaortic lymph node recurrence from colorectal cancer. METHODS From 2003 to 2009, 7 patients with paraaortic lymph node recurrence (1-3 lesions) from colorectal cancer were treated with stereotactic body radiotherapy. Total gross tumor volumes ranged from 4 to(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the most appropriate media condition for the proliferation and functional maintenance of human corneal endothelial cells (HCECs). METHODS We cultured HCECs in traditional media (medium A or D) and in stem cell media (medium E or N). The morphology of the cells was evaluated by inverted microscopy. Collagen, type VIII, alpha 2 and(More)
PURPOSE To investigate stemness characteristics of human corneal endothelial cells (HCECs) cultured in various media. METHODS Human corneal endothelial cells were isolated using a sphere-forming assay. Cells were allowed to attach to the bottom of culture plates and were cultured in different media designated as medium A (Opti-MEM I with 8% fetal bovine(More)
PURPOSE This study was performed to compare the therapeutic efficacy and toxicity of doxorubicin plus docetaxel neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NC) with doxorubicin plus vinorelbine NC. METHODS Fifty-three patients underwent 4 cycles of NC consisted of intravenous injection of doxorubicin (50 mg/m(2)) plus docetaxel (75 mg/m(2)) administered every 3 weeks (AD),(More)
The traditional security objectives of smart grids have been availability, integrity, and confidentiality. However, as the grids incorporate smart metering and load management, user and corporate privacy is increasingly becoming an issue in smart grid networks. Although transmitting current power consumption levels to the supplier or utility from each smart(More)
The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the toxicity of voriconazole on cultured human corneal endothelial cells (HCECs). HCECs were cultured and exposed to various concentrations of voriconazole (5.0 to 1,000 μg/ml). Cell viability was measured using a Cell Counting Kit-8 (CCK-8) and live/dead viability/cytotoxicity assays. Cell damage was(More)
AIMS To determine the effect of intracamerally injected voriconazole on corneal endothelial cells in rabbit eyes. METHODS Various concentrations of voriconazole (0%, 0.03%, 0.1%, 0.25%, 0.5% and 1%) were injected intracamerally in 36 eyes of 18 rabbits (six eyes for each concentration). Measurements of endothelial cell counts and central corneal thickness(More)
