Environmental noise is known to cause noise annoyance. Since noise annoyance is a subjective indicator, other mediators-such as noise sensitivity-may influence its perception. However, few studies have thus far been conducted on noise annoyance in South Korea that consider noise sensitivity and noise level simultaneously. The aim of this study was to evaluate the correlations between noise sensitivity or noise level and noise annoyance on a large scale in South Korea. This study estimated the level of noise exposure based on a noise map created in 2014; identified and surveyed 1836 subjects using a questionnaire; and assessed the impact of transportation noise and noise sensitivity on noise annoyance...

Monochamus alternatus Hopeis is an important vector of nematode pests of timber in Korea, particularly Bursaphelenchus xylophilus (Steiner & Buhrer) Nickle. Previously, we reported that ethanedinitrile (C2N2) has the potential to replace methyl bromide and metam sodium to control M. alternatus larvae and B. xylophilus under low-temperature (<5 °C) conditions. Herein, we report on fumigation trials of C2N2 over a 3-yr period (February 2013-October 2015) conducted at higher temperatures. The trials were conducted under 24 different conditions that incorporated varying fumigation chamber types (plastic sheeting-enclosed chambers of differing construction or an ISO shipping container, interior size: 5...

Alveolar capillary dysplasia with misalignment of pulmonary veins (ACD/MPV) is an autosomal dominant, fatal developmental disorder of the lungs, with a mortality rate of about 100%. ACD/MPV is caused by mutations in FOXF1. Herein, we describe a newborn boy with ACD/MPV carrying a novel pathogenic variant of FOXF1. The patient developed respiratory distress and severe pulmonary hypertension on the first day of life. Despite aggressive cardiorespiratory management, including veno-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, his condition deteriorated rapidly, and he died within the first month of his life...
