Is Hib vaccine of economic value in South Korea?
Prediction of plasma hemoglobin concentration by near-infrared spectroscopy.
We obtained a total of 97 data combinations for the 30 study patients. The Hb was regressed by independent variables including rSO(2) and PaCO(2). A multilinear regression analysis was performed and the final regression equation was expressed only with statistically significant variables. The measur...
Drug Rash with Eosinophilia and Systemic Symptoms (DRESS) syndrome induced by celecoxib and anti-tuberculosis drugs.
We report a case in a 29-yr-old female patient who had been on celecoxib and anti-tuberculosis drugs for one month to treat knee joint pain and pulmonary tuberculosis. Our patient's clinical manifestations included fever, lymphadenopathy, rash, hypereosinophilia, and visceral involvement (hepatitis...
Nomograms for prediction of disease recurrence in patients with primary Ta, T1 transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder.
We developed nomograms to predict disease recurrence in patients with Ta, T1 transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder. Thirty-eight training hospitals participated in this retrospective multicenter study. Between 1998 and 2002, a total of 1,587 patients with newly diagnosed non-muscle invasive bla...
Acute interstitial pneumonia in siblings: a case report.
We present a case of AIP in a 3-yr-old girl whose other two siblings showed similar radiologic findings. The patient was confirmed to have AIP from autopsy showing histological findings of diffuse alveolar damage and proliferation of fibroblasts. Her 3-yr-old brother was also clinically and radiolog...
Factors affecting the designation of cerebrovascular diseases as work-related in administrative litigation.
We estimated the relationship between the investigated variables and designation of the work-relatedness of the CVD. As for the age, the odds ratio of the acceptance rate of a case as work-related in subjects over 60 yr of age was 0.08 (95% CI, 0.01-0.75), which was compared to subjects under 30 yr...
Evaporated liquid nitrogen-induced asphyxia: a case report.
A 27-yr-old postgraduate student was found lying at the floor of an unsealed underground dry area, where a valve-opened empty cylinder of liquid nitrogen (150 L) was connected to a cap-removed empty Dewar-flask (10 L) via a copper infusion tube. No injury was found externally or internally. There we...
Meta-analysis of the association between HLA-DRB1 allele and rheumatoid arthritis susceptibility in Asian populations.
The aims of this study were to summarize results on the association of HLA-DRB1 with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in Asians and to determine if the shared epitope (SE) hypothesis could explain the meta-analysis results. Among the papers published between January 1987 and July 2006 on RA susceptibility...
Detrimental effects of N(omega) nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME)in experimental Escherichia coli sepsis in the newborn piglet.
We tested the hypothesis that nonselective inhibition of nitric oxide synthase with N(omega) -nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME) is detrimental during the early phase of experimental sepsis in the newborn piglet. Newborn piglets were divided into four groups: 6 in the control group, 6 in the L-N...
Intercellular adhesion molecule-1 polymorphisms in Korean patients with Behcet s disease.
We analyzed ICAM1 polymorphisms in Korean BD patients to determine if there was an association between particular mutations and clinical symptoms. The prevalence of ICAM1R241G and ICAM1K469E polymorphisms was determined among 197 patients with BD and 248 healthy controls using BsrG1 and BstU1 PCR-RF...
