The purpose of this study was to introduce an advanced technique for the best living donor right hepatectomy (LDRH) using the hanging maneuver by Glisson’s approach under an upper midline incision. From January 2005 to February 2010, a total of 196 consecutive LDRHs have been performed at the National Cancer Center, Korea. To assess the overall outcomes of(More)
BACKGROUND In rotator cuff repair, no practical guidelines exist for deciding which technique is the most beneficial to outcomes. PURPOSE To determine which of 2 repair techniques, the single-row (SR) and double-row suture bridge (DR-SB) methods, leads to better therapeutic outcomes in terms of remnant tendon length in patients with larger than(More)
AIM We aim to investigate erythropoietin (EPO) response to anemia and its association with autonomic neuropathy in type 2 diabetic patients without advanced renal failure. METHODS A cross-sectional study was conducted on 211 type 2 diabetes mellitus patients without advanced renal failure [estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) >40 ml/min/1.73 m(2)].(More)
Heat shock proteins (HSPs) have been observed in cells exposed to a variety of stresses, including infectious pathogens. This study used a label-free, quantitative proteomic approach and transcriptional gene expression analysis to investigate infection-related HSP proteins and their encoding genes in whole kidneys from olive flounder (Paralichthys(More)
UNLABELLED Twenty-two patients (24 shoulders) had a scapulothoracic arthrodesis for various clinical disorders including facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy, scapular winging from serratus anterior palsy, painful scapular crepitation, and cleidocranial dysostosis. All patients were extremely disabled with pain and loss of function because of their(More)
A multiplex PCR protocol was established to simultaneously detect major bacterial pathogens in olive flounder (Paralichthys olivaceus) including Edwardsiella (E.) tarda, Streptococcus (S.) parauberis, and S. iniae. The PCR assay was able to detect 0.01 ng of E. tarda, 0.1 ng of S. parauberis, and 1 ng of S. iniae genomic DNA. Furthermore, this technique was(More)
The learning and memory impairment of presenilin 2 transgenic mice was mentioned previously. In this study, exposing the presenilin 2 transfected PC12 cells to the 50 microM Abeta(25-35), 30 mM l-glutamate and 50 microM H(2)O(2) resulted in significant increase 8-oxodG and p53 levels of the cells expressing the mutant gene. The increase was also found in(More)
Mutation in the presenilin 2 (PS2mt) is known to be one of factors involved in the development of Alzheimer's disease (AD). It was recently revealed that an abnormality of lipid metabolism is a phenomenon occurring in AD. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the potential relationship between the mutation of PS2 and alterations of the lipid(More)
