Infection rate of Leptospira interrogans in the field rodent, Apodemus agrarius, in Korea. (1/3461)

Leptospirosis has significantly decreased in Korea since 1988, following the leptospiral vaccination programme initiated in 1988. Whether this wholly explains the decreased incidence is uncertain. As an initial step to answer this question, infection rates of Leptospira interrogans in field rodents, Apodemis agrarius, were examined and compared with previous data. Two hundred and twenty-two A. agrarius were captured during October-December 1996. Spirochaetes were isolated from 22 (9.9%) and leptospiral DNA was detected in an additional 6 rodents (12.6%). Subsequent microscopic agglutination tests (MAT) classified all these isolates as L. interrogans serogroup Icterohaemorrhagiae serovar lai. The above data did not significantly differ from previous surveys in 1984-7. There was no significant change of L. interrogans infection in field rodents following the introduction of the vaccination programme in Korea. Further studies are needed to determine the role of human vaccination in reducing incidence.  (+info)

Special medical examination program reform proposal in Korea. (3/3461)

We are at a time when reform in the special medical examination program in keeping with the changing times is desperately needed because the common perception of workers, employers, and medical examination facilities is "special medical examination is merely ritualistic and unproductive." Therefore, we have tried to set forth the basic structure for reforming the special medical examination program by taking a close look at the management status of the current program and analyzing its problems. The specifics of the special medical examination program reform proposal consist of three parts such as the types, health evaluation based on occupational medicine, and the interval, subject selection, items and procedure. Pre-placement medical examination and non-periodic medical examinations-as-necessary are introduced newly. Health evaluation based on occupational medicine consists of classification of health status, evaluation of work suitability, and post-examination measure. Details regarding the medical examination interval, subject selection, items and procedure were changed.  (+info)

Bacterial resistance to antimicrobial agents: an overview from Korea. (5/3461)

Antimicrobial resistance of bacteria has become a worldwide problem. Available data suggest that the resistance problem is comparatively more serious in Korea. In large hospitals, the proportion of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) has been reported at over 70%, and of penicillin-nonsusceptible Streptococcus pneumoniae at around 70%. Infection or colonization of vancomycin-resistant enterococci has started to increase. Extended-spectrum beta-lactamase producing Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae has become widespread and even carbapenem-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa has been increasing. Community-acquired pathogens such as Salmonella, Shigella and Neisseria gonorrhoeae are often resistant to various antimicrobial agents. The prevalence of resistant bacteria can lead to erroneous empirical selection of either noneffective or expensive drugs, prolonging hospitalization and higher mortality. The emergence and spread of resistant bacteria are unavoidable unless antimicrobial agents are not used at all. The high prevalence of resistant bacteria in Korea seems to be related to antibiotic usage: 1) easy availability without prescription at drug stores, 2) injudicious use in hospitals, and 3) uncontrolled use in agriculture, animal husbandry, and fisheries. Nosocomial infection is an important factor in the spread of resistant bacteria. Antimicrobial resistance problems should be regarded as the major public health concern in Korea. It is urgently required to ban the sale of antibiotics without prescription, to use antibiotics more judiciously in hospitals by intensive teaching of the principles of the use of antibiotics, and to establish better control measures of nosocomial infections. Regulation of antimicrobials for other than human use should also be required. These issues are not easy to address and require the collective action of governments, the pharmaceutical industry, health care providers, and consumers.  (+info)

The characteristics of extended-spectrum beta-lactamases in Korean isolates of Enterobacteriaceae. (6/3461)

Extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs) in gram-negative organisms have been implicated as the enzymes responsible for resistance to oxyimino-cephalosporins. The incidence of ESBL-producers in Korean isolates of Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae were in the range of 4.8-7.5% and 22.5-22.8%, respectively. The ESBL-producing isolates revealed variable levels of resistance to cefotaxime, ceftazidime and aztreonam. They also showed the elevated MIC values of non-beta-lactam antibiotics. SHV-12 and SHV-2a were the enzymes most frequently found in K. pneumoniae strains, but TEM-52 was the most prevalent in E. coli isolates. About 15% of ESBL-producing isolates of Enterobacteriaceae produced CMY-1 enzyme, which conferred resistance to cephamycins such as cefoxitin as well as oxyimino-cephalosporins. Thus, the most common types of ESBLs in Korea are TEM-52, SHV-12 SHV-2a, and CMY-1.  (+info)

Emergence and spread of antimicrobial resistance of Streptococcus pneumoniae in Korea. (7/3461)

Pneumococcal resistance has become a global issue during the past three decades. One of the major foci of pneumococcal resistance worldwide is the Asian region including Korea, Japan, and Hong Kong. Korea had not been recognized as a focus of pneumococcal resistance until 1995, when serial reports documented the alarmingly high prevalence of penicillin resistance among clinical isolates. Serial reports on penicillin resistance among pneumococcal isolates in Korea ranged from 68% to 77% as of 1995. Multidrug resistance was also noted in 34% of Korean isolates. Penicillin-binding protein profile analysis, pulsed-field gel electrophoresis, ribotyping, and fingerprinting analysis of pbp genes showed that antibiotic-resistant pneumococci isolated in Korea were genetically related. Data documented the extensive spread of a resistant clone within Korea and between different countries. Besides the injudicious use of antimicrobial agents or the high prevalence of serotypes 23 and 19, the spread of a resistant clone may play an important role in the rapid increase of penicillin resistance in Korea.  (+info)

Vancomycin-resistant enterococcal infections in Korea. (8/3461)

Enterococci recently became the second-to-third most commonly isolated organism from nosocomial infections. Enterococci are intrinsically more resistant to many antimicrobial agents and often show acquired resistance to many antimicrobial agents including high-level aminoglycosides. With the increased use of vancomycin, vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) has become an important nosocomial pathogen. In Korea, the proportion of VRE among all enterococcal of VRE is no longer low in some settings and recent observations of a sudden increase of VRE isolation in several hospitals in Korea suggests that VRE infection may become a serious problem in the near future. The most important considerations are that vancomycin-resistant genes may spread to other highly virulent genera, such as MRSA, and that there are no approved and convincingly effective antibiotics for the treatment of VRE. Therefore, current efforts have concentrated on limiting the spread of these organisms within the hospital environment. Prudent use of antimicrobial agents and strict adherence to preventive measures such as aggressive communication, education, and infection control practices are essential to control the spread of this organism. However, hospital infection control protocols and the laboratory support they require are costly in terms of space and supplies, as well as in personnel resources. These factors add further pressure to already stretched hospital budgets. Nevertheless, policies or programs defining and managing VRE infection or colonization should be established and now is the time to enforce an overall management strategy against VRE.  (+info)

Diagnosis of ADHD, characterized by poor concentration, distraction, and impulsiveness, is made by clinical diagnostic procedures that require long professional training, including various developmental assessments, use of assessment scales, and diagnostic interview tools.. However, there is a lot of reliance on the parent or teacher who fills out the evaluation forms. The problem is that such a process has room for subjective judgment of parents and teachers.. In the case of parents with high anxiety, it is possible to report the seriousness of the childrens problems with high severity, while parents with low anxiety may downplay the childrens symptoms.. Also, even if the child needs treatment, symptoms may worsen due to the false belief of parents or caregivers who may have a wrong idea of the disorder and lead to secondary complications.. Therefore it is necessary to consider the credibility of the information carefully, and the ADHD diagnosis process requires high proficiency of the ...

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic disease that causes pain, stiffness, swelling, and limitation in the motion and function of multiple joints. Though joints are the principal body parts affected by RA, inflammation can develop in other organs as well. An estimated 1.3 million Americans have RA, and the disease typically affects women twice as often as men.. Methotrexate, a widely used immunosuppressant, can lower vaccine efficacy in people with RA. So researchers in Seoul, Republic of Korea, set out to investigate whether patients with RA could improve their response to influenza vaccinations by temporarily pausing methotrexate use for two weeks after their flu shot.. RA patients are more susceptible to infections, including seasonal flu, due to their underlying abnormal immune function and the treatment-associated immune suppression, said Jin Kyun Park, MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine at Seoul National University Hospital, and a lead author of the study. RA patients taking ...
Molecular profiling with next-generation sequencing (NGS) has been applied in multiple solid cancers to discover potential therapeutic targets. Here, we describe the results of a clinical NGS panel in patients with advanced melanoma. Thirty-six tumor tissues from patients with BRAF wild-type melanoma at Seoul National University Hospital (SNUH; Seoul, Republic of Korea) were collected and deep-sequenced using the SNUH FIRST-Cancer NGS panel to assess single-nucleotide variants, small insertions/deletions, copy number variations, and structural variations to estimate tumor mutation burden (TMB). We discovered 106 oncogenic alterations and most of the patients (n = 33, 92%) harbored at least one oncogenic alteration, including 2 patients who were initially diagnosed as BRAF V600E-negative but were later confirmed to be positive. Altogether, 36 samples were classified into RAS/BRAF/NF1-mutant (n = 14, 39%) or triple wild-type (n = 22, 61%) melanoma subtypes. The estimated median TMB was 8.2 ...

A recent clinical research led by Hyo-Soo Kim from the Division of Cardiology in the Department of Internal Medicine at Seoul National University Hospital suggests that combining statins with omega-3 fatty acids may be more effective at managing raised blood lipid levels than statins alone. Sixty-two people with high triglyceride levels and total cholesterol levels participated in the six week prospective, randomized, open-label study. Both groups received a daily poll containing 20mg of simvastatin, while half of the participants also received an addition 4 grams of omega-3 per day*.. After six weeks the group receiving simvastatin only achieved a 13.9 percent reduction. The group receiving the combination simvastatin and Omega-3 was able to reduce blood levels of triglycerides by a significant 41.0 percent without adverse reactions.. The study appears to support the already extensive data linking omega-3 intakes and improved measures of cardiovascular health. The heart health benefits of ...

In 2009, South Korea had the highest suicide rate among the 31 mostly wealthy nations in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, at around 22 deaths per 100,000 people (compared with around 18 in 100,000 for the OECD as a whole.) The OECD notes that the rate in South Korea has increased rapidly even as it has slowed in most other developed nations, with suicides among South Korean males, for instance, almost tripling between 1990 and 2006.. […]. The suicide problem has also been linked with the Korean concept of han, a kind of stoicism also tied to feelings of anger and impotence that arise when facing a situation that cant be changed. Han, deeply embedded in Korean society, has been linked to depression. When a situation is bad and they cant show their cool selves, Koreans tend to get frustrated, give up and take drastic choices, says Hwang Sang-min, a professor of psychology at Yonsei University. These cultural traits may be exacerbated by the stigma that many South ...

By Jon Herskovitz. SEOUL (Reuters) - South Koreas celebrated stem cell scientist, who has been caught in a storm of controversy over ethical lapses in his work, has been taken to hospital suffering from exhaustion, a medical official said on Wednesday.. In the United States, an influential science publication said there were no flaws in the findings of the scientist, Hwang Woo-suk, whose team made global headlines by developing tailored embryonic stem cells and producing the worlds first cloned dog.. Hwang has been in seclusion since November 24, when he apologized as he told a news conference that two junior women researchers had donated their eggs for his work and he had not released information about the incident soon enough.. International science generally frowns on research associates donating key project components because of possible coercion.. Hwang was admitted to Seoul National University Hospital on Wednesday with symptoms including dramatic weight loss. He could be suffering from ...
It is true that conspiracy theories are rife in Korea, and they play a major role in Korean public life. One needs to look no farther than the Mad Cow scare that gripped the country two years ago. While there were legitimate kernels of truth about Americas lax regulation against Mad Cow Disease (for example, not accounting for cross-infection until April of 2009,) those kernels were popcorned into utterly crazy ideas that the U.S. is out to kill Koreans with infected meat in the name of profit. More recently, certain South Korean political groups claimed that the South Korean government was falsely accusing North Korea for the attack by manufacturing the critical piece of evidence (which is Korean lettering discovered on a piece of the exploded torpedo shell) in order to gain advantage in the upcoming regional elections. In fact, the political groups that made those wild charges ended up gaining in the regional elections ...

Context. The Edmonton Symptom Assessment System (ESAS) is a brief, widely adopted, multidimensional questionnaire to evaluate patient-reported symptoms. Objectives. To develop a Korean version of the ESAS (K-ESAS) and to perform a psychometric analysis in Korean patients with advanced cancer. Methods. We tested the K-ESAS in two pilot studies with 15 patients each. We assessed internal consistency, test-retest reliability, and concurrent validity in 163 Korean patients, who completed the K-ESAS along with the Korean versions of the M. D. Anderson Symptom Inventory (K-MDASI) and the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (K-HADS) twice. A total of 38 patients completed the questionnaires again seven days later to assess responsiveness. Results. The K-ESAS scores had good internal consistency, with a Cronbachs alpha coefficient of 0.88, indicating that no questions had undue influence on the score. Pearson correlation coefficients for K-ESAS symptom scores between baseline and after two to four ...
A South Korean research scandal that recently shook the scientific world may be closer to home than originally thought.. Dr. Gerald Schatten, a researcher from the University of Pittsburgh, has been implicated by a Seoul National University panel investigating the work of Dr. Hwang Woo-Suk. In South Korea, Suk went from being the countrys most celebrated scientist to highly discredited when it was determined last month that his research on human stem cell cloning was illegitimate. Hwang has since resigned and may face jail time for misusing government funds.. That study was co-authored by Schatten. The extent of Schattens involvement in the fraud is being investigated by his university.. Schatten remains on the faculty at the University of Pittsburgh as an academic panel reviews the extent of his involvement in Hwangs work. The panel is expected to continue its investigation into February.. The SNU panel indicated that Schattens role in the study and its fabrications may have been ...

Research proves youll live longer if you laugh! A seven-year, 54,000-person study concluded people with a sense of humor have a 70% greater chance of surviving cancer, and a Loma Linda University medical researcher even calculated precise chemical changes. (Laughter increased human growth hormone by 87%, which optimizes immunity.). Laughter also increases T cells in the immune system while reducing arterial stiffness and blood pressure, and one author suggests for every minute of laughter you produce somewhere around $10,000 worth of healthy body chemistry. Lee Im-seon, laughter therapist at Seoul National University Hospital, even claims the hormones secreted when people laugh are known to alleviate pain 200-300 times better than morphine.. Amazing how much funnier everything is when your life depends on it - but watch out. One man died while laughing at the movie A Fish Called Wanda.

PURPOSE: For the accurate diagnosis of organic acidopathies, quantification of urinary organic acid should be done and we should know the normal ranges of each organic acid excreted in the urine. The amount of organic acids excreted in the urine shows wide variability according to ethnic group, diet and age. We have quantified 82 organic acids to make a Korean reference value. METHODS: Organic acid concentrations were quantified with gas chromatography and the individual acids identified with mass spectrometry in urine specimens from members of the healthy Korean population of ages of one day to more than 12 years, subdivided into four age groups : neonatal period(-2 mon), infantile period(-2 year), childhood period(-12 year) and adolescent and adulthood(over 12 years). For isolation of organic acids from urine, we used solvent extraction method with ethylacetate. Derivatization was done with MSTFA(N-methyl-N-trimethylsilylfluoroacetamide). The library and four points quantification curve for ...

In her latest book, North Korea: Markets and Military Rule, author Hazel Smith delivers a rich empirical study of social and economic transformation in North Korea. The book evaluates the marketization from below that followed the devastating famine of the early 1990s, estimated to be the cause of nearly one million fatalities. Smith shows how the end of the Cold War in Europe and the famine brought radical social change to all of North Korean society. It analyses how marketization transformed the interests, expectations and values of the entire society, including Party members, the military, women and men, the young and the elderly. Smith shows how the daily life of North Koreans has become alienated from the daily pronouncements of the North Korean government. Challenging stereotypes of twenty-five million North Koreans as mere bystanders in history, Smith argues that North Koreans are neither victims nor villains but active agents of their own destiny.
WASHINGTON, April 3, 2013 - U.S. leaders are taking North Korean threats seriously and will continue to make measured responses to Kim Jong Uns bellicosity, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said here today.. The secretary spoke to students at the National Defense University at Fort Lesley J. McNair.. The North Korean leader has threatened to shell the South Korean capital of Seoul and to launch missiles at Guam, Hawaii and the western United States. He also rescinded the armistice North Korea signed with the United Nations in 1953 that ended hostilities on the Korean Peninsula. This week, he announced he was restarting a nuclear plant to produce more weapons-grade uranium and plutonium.. It only takes being wrong once, and I dont want to be the secretary of defense that was wrong once, Hagel said in answer to a students question. We will continue to take these threats seriously. I hope the North will ratchet this very dangerous rhetoric down.. For decades, officials have urged North Korean ...
CAMBRIDGE, England -- The war of words goes on. U.S. Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz has warned the North Korean government that any aggressive activity on the Korean Peninsula sponsored by North Korea would be met by a devastating response.. Presumably that is a threat of military action by the United States. At the June 2 press conference in Seoul in which he made the threat, Wolfowitz also said he takes seriously Pyongyangs claims to have developed nuclear weapons. He added, however, that U.S. intelligence is unable to confirm whether North Korea possesses any weapons of mass destruction.. The thing is, the North Korean government has never claimed publicly that it has any nuclear weapons or that it is engaged in uranium enrichment or plutonium production.. U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for East Asia and the Pacific James Kelly claims that the North Koreans told him that they have weapons and are working to develop more. But no one has corroborated Kellys claims, which are ...

Jangmadang (Chosŏngŭl: 장마당), Korean for market grounds, are the North Korean farmers markets, local markets and black markets. Since the North Korean famine, they have formed a large informal economy. In recent years, the government has become more lenient on their existence, but however, merchants still face heavy regulations. Currently a majority of North Koreans are dependent on markets for their survival. The North Korean government has tried to regulate growth of the market economy in North Korea with a variety of methods. Some of them such as regulating age of traders has caused some societal changes such as making women more responsible for earning money for their families. This has resulted in changing gender roles in North Korean society. There have been speculations on the possible role of black market in causing reforms of North Korean government and economy, possibly in similar manner as in China· After the collapse of the public distribution system in North Korea, the ...

BACKGROUND: Several nomograms have been proposed to facilitate the determination of initial gentamicin dosing regimens in clinical settings. This study aimed to assess the predictive performance of these nomograms in Korean patients.. METHODS: Gentamicin concentrations were determined in 84 patients with infective endocarditis (IE) and in 95 patients with other infections. All patients underwent therapeutic drug monitoring in Seoul National University Hospital from 2006 to 2012. Individual pharmacokinetic parameters were estimated using a Bayesian method, which predicted steady state peak and trough serum concentrations. Six nomograms were evaluated in patients with other infections: the Thomson guidelines, Hull-Sarubbi table, and Rule of Eights, for multiple daily dosing; and the Hartford nomogram, Barnes-Jewish Hospital nomogram, and Sanford Guide, for extended-interval dosing. In IE patients, synergistic combination dosing nomograms, based on the American Heart Association dosing interval ...
