BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Bioaggregates such as Portland cement (PC) can be an economical alternative for mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) with additional benefit of less discoloration. MTA has been known to induce differentiations of several dental cells. MicroRNAs are important regulators of biological processes, including differentiation, physiologic homeostasis, and disease progression. This study is to explore how PC enhances the differentiation of periodontal ligament (PDL) cells in microRNAs level...

BACKGROUND: Obstetric patients comprise a limited portion of intensive care unit patients, but they often present with unfamiliar conditions and exhibit the potential for catastrophic deterioration. This study evaluated the maternal and neonatal outcomes of respiratory failure during pregnancy. METHODS: Information on 71 patients at >25 weeks gestation in the ICU with respiratory failure was recorded between 2009 and 2013. The characteristics and outcomes of mothers and fetuses were determined through a retrospective chart review and evaluated using Student's t test, chi-square test, and Fisher's exact test...

BACKGROUND: It is generally understood that cancer patients are at an increased risk for osteoporosis. Additionally, recent studies have suggested a shared pathophysiological mechanism between the development of cancer and osteoporosis. The purpose of this investigation was to investigate whether low bone mineral density is associated with cancer risk. METHODS: We enrolled 8780 subjects who underwent dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) and cancer screening from January 1, 2008-December 31, 2012 from a cohort selected from Chang Gung Health Care Center in Taiwan...

PURPOSE: This study examined the differences in mental health and behavioral problems among young adults with borderline personality symptoms of various severities. METHODS: 500 college students participated in this study. Borderline personality symptoms were evaluated using the Taiwanese version of the Borderline Symptom List (BSL-23). Mental health problems were assessed using the Symptom Checklist-90-Revised Scale. Suicidality and other behavioral problems were assessed using questions from the epidemiological version of the Kiddie Schedule for Affective Disorders and Schizophrenia and BSL-23 Supplement...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Research biopsies (RBs) are crucial for developing novel molecular targeted agents. However, the safety and diagnostic yields of RBs have not been investigated in EGFR mutation-positive non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients pretreated with epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs). METHODS: We searched the medical records of NSCLC patients who participated in lung cancer clinical trials and underwent mandatory RBs between 2012 and 2014 at our institution...

Ketamine immunoassay urine drug screen (UDS) is commonly used in Taiwan. However, there was limited report about possible drug which may cause false positive results in ketamine screen test. We report two cases who used quetiapine showed positive in ketamine urine immunoassay screen initially, and found to be false positive in confirmation test. Clinicians should be aware of the false positive result of ketamine UDS caused by currently used medication.

REVIEW
Kelvin K W To, Cyril C Y Yip, Kwok-Yung Yuen
Rhinovirus has been neglected in the past because it was generally perceived as a respiratory virus only capable of causing mild common cold. Contemporary epidemiological studies using molecular assays have shown that rhinovirus is frequently detected in adult and pediatric patients with upper or lower respiratory tract infections. Severe pulmonary and extrapulmonary complications are increasingly recognized. Contrary to popular belief, some rhinoviruses can actually replicate well at 37 °C and infect the lower airway in humans...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: To investigate the M1/M2 polarity of macrophages in the endometrium among different menstrual cycles, normal and abnormal pregnancies, and unexplained recurrent spontaneous abortions (RSAs). METHODS: Endometrial tissue was obtained from 43 patients undergoing hysterectomy, either in the follicular phase (Group 1, n = 23) or in the luteal phase (Group 2, n = 20). In addition, decidual tissue was obtained from 53 pregnant women during the first trimester, either of normal pregnancies (Group 3, n = 12) or abnormal pregnancies (Group 4: spontaneous abortions, n = 20; Group 5: unexplained RSA, n = 21)...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Deregulation of metabolic pathways is one of the hallmarks of cancer progression. Connective tissue growth factor (CTGF/CCN2) acts as a tumor suppressor in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). However, the role of CTGF in modulating cancer metabolism is still unclear. METHODS: OSCC cells stably overexpressing CTGF (SAS/CTGF) and shRNA against CTGF (TW2.6/shCTGF) were established. Oxygen consumption rate (OCR) and extracellular acidification rate (ECAR) were examined by the Seahorse XF24 analyzer...

BACKGROUND: To determine whether dual-phase (18)F-florbetapir positron emission tomography imaging with perfusion-like and amyloid deposition information can distinguish among primary progressive aphasia (PPA), Alzheimer's disease (AD), and healthy controls (HCs). METHODS: Patients diagnosed with PPA, including four semantic dementia (SD) and two progressive nonfluent aphasia (PNFA), as well as one logopenic variant (LV) of PPA, were studied. All PPA patients, and age-/sex-matched patients with probable AD (n=8) and HCs (n=8) were subjected to dual-phase (18)F-florbetapir imaging...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Elevated monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) is related to severe periodontal destruction. Furthermore, MCP-1 -2518 A/G gene polymorphism affects MCP-1 after inflammatory stimuli. This study analyzed the association between MCP-1 -2518 gene polymorphism and the outcome of nonsurgical periodontal treatment. METHODS: Forty periodontal patients were recruited and MCP-1 -2518 A/G gene polymorphisms were analyzed using polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism assay...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Interval colorectal cancer (CRC) is an emerging issue in CRC screening and surveillance. The frequency of interval CRC and its associated factors have not been well studied in Eastern Asia. We aim to clarify the factors associated with interval CRC. METHODS: CRC patients who had negative colonoscopy results 6-36 months prior to cancer diagnosis were defined as cases of interval CRC. Patient characteristics, past history, colon preparation, colonoscopy findings, and pathology were retrospectively evaluated...
