AIMS Chronic kidney disease (CKD) and retinopathy share the common pathophysiology of microvascular dysfunction. It is unclear whether the clinical significance of diabetic retinopathy (DMR) and hypertensive retinopathy (HTNR) differs in CKD patients. METHODS We included 684 nondialysis-dependent CKD stage 3-5 patients with diabetes or hypertension: 501(More)
The immunochemical fecal occult blood test (iFOBT) is a useful method to screen for lower gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding-related lesions. However, few studies have investigated the diagnostic utility of iFOBT in chronic kidney disease (CKD). We included 691 patients with nondialysis-dependent CKD stages 2–5 or those receiving dialysis. Bleeding-related(More)
The importance of anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) as an oncogene in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has emerged as a major concern due to a dramatic clinical effect of targeted therapy. As compared with the research for targeted therapy, the study about clinicopathological characteristics for ALK positive NSCLC hasn’t been worked enough. Here, we(More)
Blunt chest trauma can cause acute myocardial infarction, which may also be associated with pericarditis. However, such cases are rare. We herein report a case of a 57-year-old man suffering from acute myocardial infarction due to a blunt chest trauma and postcardiac injury syndrome after discharge with spontaneous resolution of a total coronary occlusion.
Objective This study assessed gender-specific associations between low muscle mass (LMM) and albuminuria. Methods Data from the Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2011 were employed. The study consisted of 1,087 subjects (≥50 years old). Skeletal muscle index (SMI) was defined as the weight-adjusted appendicular skeletal muscle mass.(More)
Activating mutations of REarrange during Transfection (RET) kinase frequently occur in human thyroid and lung cancers. An enormous effort has been devoted to discover potent and selective inhibitors of RET. Selective and potent inhibitors against constitutively active RET mutants are rare to date as identification of selective RET inhibitors is challenging.(More)
