  • A various ${\alpha}$-arylmethylpropionic acids(profen) have been widely used as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for the relief of acute and chronic rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, as well as for other connective tissue disorders and pains. Example is fenoprofen, ibuprofen, ketoprofen, and naproxen. All are chiral and, except for naproxen and ibuprofen, are marketed in racemic form. Enantioseparations of profens have been of considerable interest becaus their anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects have been attirbuted almost exclusively to their (S)-enantiomer. (omitted)

  • The typical Kinetic Family Drawing (KFD) Web database system, a form of prototype system, has been developed, relying on the suggestions from family art therapists, with an aim to handle large amounts of assessment data and to facilitate effective implement of assessment activities. However, unfortunately such a system has an intrinsic problem that it fails to collect clients' behaviors, attitudes, facial expressions, voices, and other critical information observed while they are drawing. Accordingly we propose the ontology based video event analysis and video retrieval system in this paper, in order to enhance the function of a KFD Web database system by using a web camera and drawing tool. More specifically, a newly proposed system is designed to deliver two kinds of services: the client video retrieval service and the sketch video retrieval service, accompanied by a summary report of occurred events and dynamic behaviors relative to each family member object, respectively. The proposed system can support the reinforced KFD assessments by providing quantitative and subjective information on clients' working attitudes and behaviors, and KFD preparation processes.

  • The purpose of this study was to explore family perception of adolescence through the Kinetic Family Drawing (KFD), and to explore its relation with the family system. The Kinetic Family Drawing (KFD) and Family System Diagnosis Scale (FSDS) were administered to 356 adolescent children. Data were analyzed using the regression analysis and the discriminant analysis. The results were as follows: First, there was a significant difference among the KFD family adaptability variables of boys' KFD and the flexibility and rigidity variables of the FSDS in the family relationship. For example, That is; for sons', it means that if there is a greater the satisfaction for their family in their drawings, then the family relationship will be more flexible. Especially with the son's KFD, there was an indication that if there is a greater the activity level of the self, then he has more flexibility in his family relationship. Second, there is a significant difference in the relationship between the KFD family hierarchy variables of girls' KFD and the parent coalition·cross-generational triads variable of the FSDS. For girls 'KFD, the result of this study indicated that when there is a greater the distance between the father figure and the child figure, the cross-generational triads we greater.

  • The use of skin whitening agents have been recently increased in various kinds of cosmetic products, although there were reports that whitening agents might cause allergic contact dermatitis. A murine local lymph node assay (LLNA) has been developed as an alternative to guinea pigs for contact sensitization potential. This study was carried out to investigate the skin sensitization potential of three whitening agents, kojic acid, arbutin, azelaic acid, by LLNA using a non-radioistopic endpoint.(omitted)

  • Zinc is known to have an inhibitory effect on apoptosis and an antioxidative effect scavenging reactive oxygen species (ROS) under oxidative stress. We studied the influence of zinc on cadmium-induced apoptosis especially associated with ROS in MCF-7 human breast carcinoma cell line. For the determination of appropriate experimental concentration and time, we excecuted MTT [3-(4, 5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2, 5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide] assay and DNA fragmentation assay.

  • Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease (KFD) is a benign self-limiting disease characterized by fever and lymphadenitis. The etiology and pathogenesis of KFD is unclear. However, two hypotheses have been suggested: a viral infection hypothesis and an autoimmune hypothesis. Several KFD patients with various types of autoimmune diseases have been reported, and these reports support the hypothesis for autoimmune pathogenesis of KFD. Here, we report the case of a 17-year-old female patient diagnosed with KFD and autoimmune thyroiditis. This case serves as additional evidence that the etiology of KFD is autoimmune origin.

  • Recently, support vector learning attracts an enormous amount of interest in the areas of function approximation, pattern classification, and novelty detection. One of the main reasons for the success of the support vector machines(SVMs) seems to be the availability of global and sparse solutions. Among the approaches sharing the same reasons for success and exhibiting a similarly good performance, we have KFD(kernel Fisher discriminant) approach. In this paper, we consider the problem of function approximation utilizing both predetermined basis functions and the KFD approach for regression. After reviewing support vector regression, semi-parametric approach for including predetermined basis functions, and the KFD regression, this paper presents an extension of the conventional KFD approach for regression toward the direction that can utilize predetermined basis functions. The applicability of the presented method is illustrated via a regression example.

  • Purpose : We experienced 7 patients with Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease(KFD) who had presented a prolonged fever and lymphadenopathy. The clinical and the laboratory aspects of the patients were analyzed. Methods : The medical records of the 7 KFD patients, who were confirmed by excisional lymph node biopsy from January 1996 through December 2003, were retrospectively analyzed. Results : The mean age of the children was $11.4{\pm}2.8$ years(ranging from 8 to 15 years). The male to female ratio was 1.3 : 1. The median duration of the fever prior to admission and the total duration of the fever were 12 days(ranging from 5 to 65 days) and 27 days(ranging 9 to 75 days), respectively. One patient had supraclavicular lymphadenopathy, 5 had cercical involvement, and 1 had axillary lymphadenopathy. All the histologic findings of the lymph nodes biopsies showed the characteristic findings consistent with KFD such as paracortical necrosis with karyorrhexis and an increase in the number of phagocytic histiocytes and atypical lymphocytes. As for the laboratory findings, leukopenia($3,800{\pm}700/mm^3$), anemia(hemoglobin, $11.0{\pm}1.2g/dL$), an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate($42{\pm}17mm/hr$), and a relatively low C-reactive protein level($1.3{\pm}0.9mg/dL$) were noted. Four patients received conservative therapy with antipyretics, and 3 patients were treated with prednisolone. Conclusion : KFD is a rare disease, yet should be considered in the differential diagnosis for older children with prolonged fever and lymphadenopathy.
