PURPOSE To search for novel disease-specific markers in gastric juice by investigating the protein concentrations and components in gastric juice from patients with various gastroduodenal diseases. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Protein concentrations and pH values in fasting gastric juice were examined in 120 healthy subjects and 39 gastric ulcer, 38 duodenal(More)
AIM To assess the sensitivity and specificity of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in detecting Helicobacter pylori (H pylori) infection in patients with bleeding peptic ulcers, and to compare its diagnostic efficacy with other invasive and non-invasive tests. METHODS From April to September 2002, H pylori status in 60 patients who consecutively presented(More)
AIM To elucidate the relations between the myeloperoxidase (-468)G-->A polymorphism and the development of duodenal ulcer (DU), and to investigate the impacts of this host genetic polymorphism on the histopathological features of Helicobacter pylori (H pylori)-related gastritis. METHODS In a case-control study of 115 consecutive DU patients and 182(More)
This analysis evaluated the association between serum retinol levels and risk of head and neck cancer (HNC) and whether the association is modulated by the use of alcohol, betel quid, or cigarette. In addition, we also examined the association between HNC risk and 2 single nucleotide polymorphisms, TTR rs1667255 and RBP4 rs10882272, that have been(More)
In this video demonstration, we present a remote interaction user interface prototype -- Pointer Wizard, to provide mixed reality experience with intuitive interaction afar. By identifying finger gestures and voice commands, it allows users to interact with appliances remotely, without the need of close proximity or even physical contact. It also brings(More)
Allergy symptoms have been associated with a reduced head and neck cancer (HNC) risk, while elevated blood immunoglobulin E (IgE) levels have been associated with an increased HNC risk. According to the “prophylaxis hypothesis,” allergic reaction is the body’s way of expelling carcinogens. IgE level may be increased by exposure to environmental carcinogens,(More)
Recent advances in wireless communications, mobile connectivity, and cloud computing have paved a way for all the devices and applications of Internet of Things (IoT), within which information from all related perspectives is closely monitored and synchronized between physical facilities, such as transportation carriers and the cyber computational space.(More)

Although substantial evidence supports a 20–30% risk reduction of colon cancer, breast cancer, and endometrial cancer by physical activity (PA), the evidence for head and neck cancer (HNC) is limited. Three published studies on the association between PA and HNC have generated inconsistent results. The current study examined the association between(More)
Although alcohol is an established risk factor of head and neck cancer (HNC), insufficiencies exist in the literature in several aspects. We analyzed detailed alcohol consumption data (amount and type of alcoholic beverage) of 811 HNC patients and 940 controls to evaluate the association between alcohol and HNC by HNC sites and by genotypes of ADH1B and(More)
