The proxy signature scheme is a kind of digital signature scheme. In the proxy signature scheme, one user, called the original signer, can delegate his/her signing capability to another user called the proxy signer. This is similar to a person delegating his/her seal to another person in the real world. In this paper, we propose a new type of proxy(More)
OBJECTIVES It was suggested that glucocorticoid exerts cell-specific effects on thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) gene expression at the transcriptional level. Although there is no typical palindromic glucocorticoid response element (GRE) on the rat TRH gene promoter, a perfect GRE half-site is found between -205 bp and -211 bp. We investigated whether(More)
BACKGROUND Secondary treatment of arteriosclerosis may be applicable for the primary prevention of atherosclerosis in diabetic patients. This prospective, 2-year follow-up study was designed to determine the efficacy and safety of antiplatelet therapy in the prevention of atherosclerosis of diabetic subjects. METHODS Patients with type 2 diabetes and(More)
BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE The goal of the present study was to investigate the effects of moderate caloric restriction on β-cell function and insulin sensitivity in middle-aged obese Korean women. SUBJECTS/METHODS Fifty-seven obese pre-menopausal Korean women participated in a 12-week calorie restriction program. Data on total cholesterol (TC), high density(More)
Quantities as well as distributions of adipose tissue (AT) are significantly related to cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors and can be altered with caloric restriction. This study investigated which cross-sectional slice location of AT is most strongly correlated with changes in CVD risk factors after caloric restriction in obese Korean women.(More)
The importance of dietary intake in the treatment of type 2 diabetes was emphasized. This study was performed to investigate the dietary intakes of Korean type 2 diabetes patients according to the treatment and duration of diabetes and to examine the relationships between their diet and serum lipid profiles. The subjects were 111 type 2 diabetic patients(More)
Several lines of evidence suggest a strong genetic component to NIDDM. To clarify the role of glucokinase gene in the development of NIDDM, restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) of glucokinase gene and 3' microsatellite polymorphism analyses by polymerase chain reaction-single strand conformational polymorphism (PCR-SSCP) were performed in NIDDM(More)
