BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Some of recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS) patients had concomitant atrophic glossitis (AG). This study assessed whether RAS patients with AG (AG+/RAS patients) or without AG (AG-/RAS patients) had anemia and hematinic deficiencies and to evaluate whether RAS combined with AG or RAS itself was a significant factor causing anemia and hematinic deficiencies in AG+/RAS or AG-/RAS patients, respectively. METHODS: The mean corpuscular volume (MCV) and mean blood hemoglobin (Hb), iron, vitamin B12, and folic acid levels were measured and compared between any two of three groups of 160 AG+/RAS patients, 195 AG-/RAS patients, and 355 healthy control subjects...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Approximately 13% of recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS) patients have serum anti-gastric parietal cell antibody (GPCA) positivity. This study assessed whether serum GPCA or RAS itself was a significant factor causing hematinic deficiencies and anemia statuses in GPCA-positive RAS (GPCA+/RAS) and all autoantibodies-negative RAS (Abs-/RAS) patients. METHODS: The mean corpuscular volume (MCV) and mean blood hemoglobin (Hb), iron, vitamin B12, and folic acid levels were measured and compared between any two of three groups of 31 GPCA+/RAS patients, 240 Abs-/RAS patients, and 342 healthy control subjects...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Serum anti-gastric parietal cell (GPCA), anti-thyroglobulin (TGA), and anti-thyroid microsomal antibodies (TMA) can be found in some recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS) patients. This study mainly assessed whether serum GPCA, TGA, TMA and RAS itself played significant roles in causing anemia and hematinic deficiencies in TGA/TMA-positive RAS patients with GPCA positivity (GPCA+/TGA/TMA/RAS patients) or negativity (GPCA-/TGA/TMA/RAS patients). METHODS: The mean corpuscular volume (MCV) and mean blood hemoglobin (Hb), iron, vitamin B12, and folic acid levels were measured and compared between any two of the four groups of 15 GPCA+/TGA/TMA/RAS patients, 69 GPCA-/TGA/TMA/RAS patients, 240 all autoantibodies-negative RAS patients (Abs-/RAS patients), and 342 healthy control subjects...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: The Stagnara wake-up test assesses neurological deficits during scoliosis surgery, and response surface interaction models for opioids and inhaled agents predicts anesthetic drug effects. We hypothesized that there is an optimal desflurane-fentanyl dosing regimen that can provide a faster and more predictable wake-up time, while also ensuring adequate analgesia during wake-up testing. METHODS: Twenty-three American Society of Anesthesiologists Class I-II scoliosis patients who received desflurane-fentanyl anesthetic regimens were enrolled in this posthoc study, and their intraoperative drug administration data were collected retrospectively...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: To evaluate meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) by infrared thermography. METHODS: An observational study was conducted at the Department of Ophthalmology, Far Eastern Memorial Hospital, New Taipei City, Taiwan. Participants included 89 MGD patients (30 in Grade 1, 49 in Grade 2, and 10 in Grade 3) and 65 controls. The close-eye thermographic images of the eyelid were obtained noninvasively by infrared thermography. Temperatures at 8 regions of interest (ROIs) of the eyelid margin and a reference temperature at the center of the upper eyelid were measured...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Atrial flutter/fibrillation (AFL/Af) is a common late complication in atrial septal defect (ASD) patients even after occluder implantation. We try to delineate the risk factors of persistent AFL/Af. METHODS: From 1998 to 2010, all patients older than 18 years of age who received ASD occluder implantation in our hospital were enrolled, and their records were retrospectively reviewed. In addition, renin-angiotensin system gene polymorphisms including angiotensinogen gene, A1166C polymorphism on the angiotensin II type I receptor gene, and insertion/deletion (I/D) patterns on the angiotensin-converting enzyme gene were checked using direct sequencing...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Anti-gastric parietal cell antibody (GPCA), anti-thyroglobulin antibody (TGA), and anti-thyroid microsomal antibody (TMA) have not yet been reported in patients with recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS). This study mainly assessed the frequencies of the presence of serum GPCA, TGA, and TMA in different types of RAS patients. METHODS: Serum GPCA, TGA, and TMA levels were measured in 355 RAS patients of different subtypes and in 355 age- and sex-matched healthy control individuals...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: The aims of the current study were to determine whether patients with conduct disorder (CD) showed an abnormal availability of serotonin reuptake transporter (SERT), and if their hyperkinetic symptoms, impulsivity, and quality of life were correlated with the availability of SERT. METHODS: We recruited 14 drug-naïve patients with CD and eight age-matched healthy controls (HCs). The adult attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) self-report scale (ASRS), Barrett impulsivity scale (BIS), and the World Health Organization quality of life-brief version (WHOQOL-BREF) scale were administered...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Previously, we successfully identified oral cancer stem cells (OCSC) displaying enhanced stemness and tumorigenic potentials. In the study, we investigated the chemotherapeutic effect of the flavonoid luteolin, commonly found in fruits and vegetables, on targeting OCSC. METHODS: Oralspheres was applied to isolate OCSC. aldehyde dehydrogenase 1 activity and CD44 positivity of OCSC with luteolin treatment were assessed by flow cytometry analysis...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Bacteria in the tooth root canal may cause apical periodontitis. This study examined the bacterial species present in the apical root canal of teeth with apical periodontitis. Antibiotic sensitivity tests were performed to evaluate whether these identified bacterial species were susceptible to specific kinds of antibiotics. METHODS: Selective media plating and biochemical tests were used first to detect the bacterial species in samples taken from the apical portion of root canals of 62 teeth with apical periodontitis...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Cholangiocarcinoma (CC) is a fatal malignancy originating from biliary tracts and constitutes approximately 10-20% of hepatobiliary cancers. CC is characterized by a very poor prognosis. The definite molecular mechanisms leading to oncogenesis remain unclear. This study aimed to perform mutation analysis and copy number changes of KRAS and BRAF genes of CC in Taiwan. METHODS: A total of 182 cases of biliary tact CC were studied for point mutation and quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction analysis of KRAS and BRAF genes...
