Affective engineering aims to improve service/product design by translating the customer's psychological feelings. Award-winning advertisements (AAs) were selected on the basis of the professional standards that consider creativity as a prerequisite. However, it is unknown if AA is related to satisfactory advertising performance among customers or only to the experts' viewpoints towards the advertisements. This issue in the field of affective engineering and design merits in-depth evaluation. We recruited 30 subjects and performed an electroencephalography (EEG) experiment while watching AAs and non-AAs (NAAs)...

Adriamycin (ADR) induces the over-expression of P-glycoprotein (P-gp) and multiple drug resistance in breast cancer cells. However, the biochemical process and underlying mechanisms are not clear. Our previous study revealed that ADR increased reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation and decreased glutathione (GSH) biosynthesis, while N-acetylcysteine, the ROS scavenger, reversed the over-expression of P-gp. The present study showed that ADR inhibited the influx of cystine (the source material of GSH) and the activity of the SLC7A11 transporter (in charge of cystine uptake) in MCF-7 cells...

Allergen-specific immunotherapy is the only causal treatment for allergic diseases. However, the efficacy of immunotherapy may vary around the world due to differences in climate, the nature of aero-allergens and their distribution. The aim of this study was to describe the effects of subcutaneous immunotherapy (SCIT) in Korean adults with allergic asthma (AA). As a retrospective cohort study, we reviewed medical records for 627 patients with AA in Korea who were sensitized to house dust mite (HDM) and/or pollens and who underwent SCIT with aluminum hydroxide adsorbed allergen extract from 2000 to 2012...

Graphene Oxide-Molecular Imprinted Polymer (GO-MIP) based electrochemical sensor was developed for the first time towards enzyme less determination of glucose. This GO-MIP was obtained from a series of fictionalization, polymerization and template molecule introduction/removal during the synthesizing process. The proposed GO-MIP based electrode showed excellent electrocatalytic activity towards glucose oxidation at optimized conditions and possessing detection limit of 0.1nM with a response time of ~2min. The current response of GO-MIP based glucose sensor was linearly related to the concentration of glucose...

BACKGROUND: Patients having coronary artery disease treated by coronary bypass or PCI procedure are exposed to tissue damage because of the phenomenon called reperfusion injury. Reperfusion injury can be characterized/monitored by oxidative stress parameters, inflammatory markers and by post-operative complication rate. OBJECTIVE: Beyond the obvious factors determining its severity (affected myocardial mass, ischaemic time, collateral circulation etc.) we examined the GST enzyme group's most cardio selective member, GSTP1 and its genetic polymorphism if there is any genetically determined preventive effect on the above-mentioned parameters...

BACKGROUND: Treatment of non-clear cell renal cell carcinoma (RCC) remains controversial despite several recent prospective studies of targeted therapies (TT). Often Vascular Endothelial growth Factor (VEGF) and Mammalian Target of Rapamycin (mTOR) inhibitors are used, extrapolating the data from use of these agents in clear cell RCC. METHODS: We performed a retrospective data analysis within the Renal Cross Channel Group to determine metastatic chromophobe RCC (mChRCC) outcomes in the TT era...

CD2 is expressed on the surfaces of virtually all T cells and natural killer (NK) cells. In mammals, the CD2 molecule is 50 kDa. The cytoplasmic tail of CD2 interacts with CD2-associated protein (CD2AP), which plays an important role in mediating the trigger signal in outer magnetic pole cells. In this study, we identified CD2AP from rock bream and investigated its gene expression. The ORF of CD2AP (1950 bp) encodes 650 amino acids (aa). CD2AP has a Src homology 3 (SH3) domain. Quantitative real-time PCR analysis revealed that CD2AP shows higher expression in the gills and skin...

Fatty acid amides (FAAs), conjugates of fatty acids with ethanolamine, mono-amine neurotransmitters or amino acids are a class of molecules that display diverse functional roles in different cells and tissues. Recently we reported that one of the serotonin-fatty acid conjugates, docosahexaenoyl serotonin (DHA-5-HT), previously found in gut tissue of mouse and pig, attenuates the IL-23-IL-17 signaling axis in LPS-stimulated mice macrophages. However, its presence and effects in humans remained to be elucidated...

BACKGROUND: Mucinous appendiceal adenocarcinomas (AAs) are the most common histological subset of AAs. Nonmucinous AAs have been infrequently studied. We performed a single-center retrospective study to investigate this histological subtype. METHODS: We reviewed 172 patient records with nonmucinous AAs treated at MD Anderson Cancer Center from Jan, 1990 to Jun, 2015 and recorded patient demographics, tumor characteristics, treatment, and outcomes. Response rate (RR) was assessed semi-quantitatively (response/no response) according to the treating physician's findings...

Excitotoxicity plays a key role during insults to the developing brain such as neonatal encephalopathy, stroke, and encephalopathy of prematurity. Such insults affect many thousands of infants each year. Excitotoxicity causes frank lesions due to cell death and gliosis and disturbs normal developmental process, leading to deficits in learning, memory, and social integration that persist into adulthood. Understanding the underlying processes of the acute effects of excitotoxicity and its persistence during brain maturation provides an opportunity to identify mechanistic or diagnostic biomarkers, thus enabling and designing possible therapies...
