The Application of the Korean Dietary Pattern Score; KNHANES (Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey) 2007  [PDF]
Kyung Won Lee, Ji Eun Oh, Mi Sook Cho
Food and Nutrition Sciences (FNS) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/fns.2012.312221
Abstract: The aim of this study was to apply the Korean Dietary Pattern Score (KDPS) to Korean subjects based on traditional Korean-style meals. The KDPS is based on the 3-Chup Bansang (the traditional Korean daily table setting) and considers the intake of 6 major food groups according to the Korean Dietary Reference Intakes (KDRIs). The KDPS consists of 2 parts: the Korean-Style Meal Score (KSMS) and the Food Group Score (FGS). The KDPS was applied dietary data collected during the Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (KNHANES) in 2007. Socio-demographic status, gender, age, and body mass index are all factors that have been shown to be meaningful predictors for the KDPS. When the effect of the KDPS on risk of disease was evaluated, a higher total KDPS was associated with a decreased risk of elevated systolic blood pressure (p < 0.05) and hypercholesterolemia (p < 0.05). In addition, as the KSMS increased, the risk of central obesity (p < 0.05) and hypertension (p < 0.01) significantly decreased. A higher total KDPS suggests a greater diversity of food intake, and therefore greater dietary diversity appears to lower the risk of disease. The KDPS is relevant because it integrates scores for Korean-style meal patterns and meal evaluation from a nutritional perspective. In conclusion, the KDPS is appropriate for evaluating the quality of diet, adherence to Korean-style meal patterns, and risk of related diseases. These results will be useful for evaluating the nation’s dietary patterns, nutrition, and health status when planning nutrition policies and programs.

Journal of Surface Engineered Materials and Advanced Technology (JSEMAT) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/jsemat.2011.12009
Abstract: This paper demonstrates for fabricating the biopolymric optical planar waveguide. Gelatin and chitosan were mixed with ratio of 9 to 1 and stirred at 70°C with 1300 rpm. The blended biopolymer was spincoated on silicon substrate with 500 rpm and then dried in the oven at 50°C. The refractive indices of the prepared biopolymer clad and core layers of the waveguide were measured by the ellipsometry. The measured refractive indices of the two layers were obtained to be 1.516 and 1.52, respectively. The nanograting was successfully imprinted on surface of the biopolymeric waveguide.

PIER , 2012, DOI: 10.2528/PIER12041205
Abstract: Distance-based impedance matching networks for a tunable high frequency (HF) system are presented in this paper for the improved performance. The transmitting antenna for a HF system with an operating frequency of 13.56 MHz consists of a two-turn loop and three channel impedance matching networks corresponding to the distance of the receiving antenna. Each impedance matching network maximizes the system performance such as uniform power efficiency and reading range at specific distance between a transmitting and a receiving antenna. By controlling the distance-based matching networks, the power efficiency of the proposed antenna improves by up to 89% compared to the conventional antenna system with the fixed matching (FM) condition for distances, and the reliable reading range according to the impedance matching conditions is also increased. The proposed technique is applicable for near field communication (NFC), radio frequency identification (RFID), or wireless power transfer (WPT) devices.

PLOS ONE , 2014, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0086419
Abstract: Background Epidemiologic data regarding tuberculin skin test (TST) responses are an important basis for TB control strategies. This study analyzed TST responses in Korea, which experienced a rapid change in BCG vaccination status. Methods TST responses in young adults were examined over 5 years. Participants with active TB lesions were excluded. Results A total of 5,552 participants were enrolled with median age of 21 years. When an induration diameter ≥10 mm was used as the criterion for a positive test, TST positivity fell (from 28.0% in 2005 to 15.3% in 2009); however, they remained steady when the criterion was ≥15–20 mm. A positive TST was associated with a personal or family of TB, the presence of a Bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG) scar, and age (odds ratio [95% confidence interval] = 4.03 [2.61–6.22], 2.91 [1.80–4.71], 1.50 [1.31–1.72], and 1.15 [1.09–1.20], respectively). Among these factors, the decrease of participants with BCG scars was the most prominent change, which appeared to be associated with the change of TST positivity rate. Conclusion Overall, the rate of TST positivity in Korea decreased. However, this trend seems associated with the change of BCG vaccination strategy rather than successful control of LTBI. This study showed that change in BCG vaccination strategy can have great impact on TB epidemiologic survey based on TST.
Leptin Increases TNF-α Expression and Production through Phospholipase D1 in Raw 264.7 Cells

PLOS ONE , 2014, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0102373
Abstract: Epidemiological evidence suggests that obesity is associated with inflammation of the respiratory tract and the pathogenesis of asthma. The purpose of this study was to examine the role of phospholipase D1 (PLD1) in leptin-induced expression of the proinflammatory cytokine, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, and to suggest a molecular link between obesity and respiratory tract inflammation. We investigated whether leptin, a typical adipocytokine, plays a role in the expression of TNF-α through increased PLD1 activity in Raw 264.7. Leptin enhanced the activity of PLD1 through activation of PLCγ and Src, while PLD1 siRNA decreased the leptin-induced expression and production of TNF-α. Leptin-induced PLD activation was also inhibited by a PLCγ inhibitor (PAO) and Src kinase inhibitor (PP2), indicating that PLCγ and Src kinase are upstream activators of PLD1. Down-regulation of PLD1 also completely blocked activation of p70S6K, an activator of JNK. Leptin-induced expression of TNF-α was also prevented by inhibition of p70S6K and JNK. Taken together, these results indicate that PLD1 acts as an important regulator of leptin-induced expression of TNF-α by participating in the PLCγ/Src/PLD1/PA/p70S6K/JNK pathway.

PLOS ONE , 2014, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0088231
Abstract: We aimed to investigate whether in vitro fermentation of soy with L. plantarum could promote its beneficial effects on lipids at the molecular and physiological levels. Rats were fed an AIN76A diet containing 50% sucrose (w/w) (CTRL), a modified AIN76A diet supplemented with 1% (w/w) cholesterol (CHOL), or a CHOL diet where 20% casein was replaced with soy milk (SOY) or fermented soy milk (FSOY). Dietary isoflavone profiles, serum lipids, hepatic and fecal cholesterol, and tissue gene expression were examined. The FSOY diet had more aglycones than did the SOY diet. Both the SOY and FSOY groups had lower hepatic cholesterol and serum triglyceride (TG) than did the CHOL group. Only FSOY reduced hepatic TG and serum free fatty acids and increased serum HDL-CHOL and fecal cholesterol. Compared to CHOL, FSOY lowered levels of the nuclear forms of SREBP-1c and SREBP-2 and expression of their target genes, including FAS, SCD1, LDLR, and HMGCR. On the other hand, FSOY elevated adipose expression levels of genes involved in TG-rich lipoprotein uptake (ApoE, VLDLR, and Lrp1), fatty acid oxidation (PPARα, CPT1α, LCAD, CYP4A1, UCP2, and UCP3), HDL-biogenesis (ABCA1, ApoA1, and LXRα), and adiponectin signaling (AdipoQ, AdipoR1, and AdipoR2), as well as levels of phosphorylated AMPK and ACC. SOY conferred a similar expression profile in both liver and adipose tissues but failed to reach statistical significance in many of the genes tested, unlike FSOY. Our data indicate that fermentation may be a way to enhance the beneficial effects of soy on lipid metabolism, in part via promoting a reduction of SREBP-dependent cholesterol and TG synthesis in the liver, and enhancing adiponectin signaling and PPARα-induced expression of genes involved in TG-rich lipoprotein clearance, fatty acid oxidation, and reverse cholesterol transport in adipose tissues.

Sensors , 2013, DOI: 10.3390/s131013439
Abstract: We propose a new remote gaze tracking system as an intelligent TV interface. Our research is novel in the following three ways: first, because a user can sit at various positions in front of a large display, the capture volume of the gaze tracking system should be greater, so the proposed system includes two cameras which can be moved simultaneously by panning and tilting mechanisms, a wide view camera (WVC) for detecting eye position and an auto-focusing narrow view camera (NVC) for capturing enlarged eye images. Second, in order to remove the complicated calibration between the WVC and NVC and to enhance the capture speed of the NVC, these two cameras are combined in a parallel structure. Third, the auto-focusing of the NVC is achieved on the basis of both the user’s facial width in the WVC image and a focus score calculated on the eye image of the NVC. Experimental results showed that the proposed system can be operated with a gaze tracking accuracy of ±0.737°~±0.775° and a speed of 5~10 frames/s.

PIER , 2012, DOI: 10.2528/PIER12040307
Abstract: A wideband circular polarized planar monopole antenna array (PMAA) that employs dual band-notched characteristics is presented in this paper. The proposed antenna array is formed by four pinwheel-shaped folded planar monopole antennas (PMAs) in order to improve the performance of circular polarization and high directivity. Also, it achieves low-profile, smallsized structure. The attractive characteristics of the proposed PMAA are a wide impedance bandwidth of 87.3% (1 GHz to 2.55 GHz), the 3 dB axialratio (AR) bandwidth of 92.3% (1.05 GHz to 2.85 GHz) excluding dual notch bands, the total bandwidth of 35% (1.8 GHz to 2.55 GHz), and the maximum gain of 8.24 dBic within the total bandwidh. Moreover, in order to generate dual band-notched characteristics in a circular polarized antenna, a folded PMAA with multiple U radiators and inverted W slots is proposed.

Archives of Plastic Surgery , 2012, DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.5999/aps.2012.39.3.244
Abstract: Many types of upper lip reconstruction have been introduced to treat defects after a tumorexcision or trauma. The authors treated two cases of upper lip defects. A 35-year-old womanpresented with a squamous cell carcinoma of the left upper lip that had invaded the cornerof the mouth. After resecting the tumor, the defect was 3.7×3.5 cm in size. A 52-year-oldwoman presented with a dog bite of the right upper lip. The defect measured 4.0×2.2 cm insize. The two cases were reconstructed by combined rotation and advancement of a cheekflap. This technique produced a good functional outcome that allowed for oral competenceand created an opening of adequate size. A combination of rotation and an advancementflap can be used to treat upper lip defects in a single-stage procedure. This approach producesa good functional and cosmetic outcome.
