Long-term efficacy of tenofovir disoproxil fumarate therapy after multiple nucleos(t)ide analogue failure in chronic hepatitis B patients
1. Tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF) rescue therapy is effective and safe for chronic hepatitis B patients with prior multiple nucleos(t)ide analogues treatment failure. 2. Hepatitis B virus DNA level at the time of switch to TDF is the most important factor for determining virologic response. 3. Further research is necessary to investigate optimal TDF therapy regimens according to the genotypic resistance profiles.

Impact of an endothelial progenitor cell capturing stent on coronary microvascular function: comparison with drug-eluting stents
1. Coronary microvascular function was better in patients receiving an endothelial progenitor cell (EPC) capturing stent than in patients receiving drug-eluting stents (DESs) at 6 months after percutaneous coronary intervention. However, both late loss of lumen diameter and target-vessel revascularization were unfavorable in the EPC stent group compared to the DES group. 2. The complete re-endothelialization achieved with the EPC stent confers beneficial effects, especially in patients with microvascular dysfunction.

Clinical impact of routine follow-up coronary angiography after second- or third-generation drug-eluting stent insertion in clinically stable patients
1. Routine follow-up coronary angiography (CAG) did not affect long-term clinical outcome after second- or third-generation drug-eluting stent implantation in clinically stable patients. 2. Routine follow-up CAG may cause a revascularizations in clinically stable patients who otherwise would not had undergone CAG, via a phenomenon known as the “oculostenotic reflex.”

Pleural fluid characteristics of pleuropulmonary paragonimiasis masquerading as pleural tuberculosis
1. Physicians should include pleuropulmonary paragonimiasis in their list of differential diagnoses for pleural effusion, especially for patients who live in or have travelled to areas in which pulmonary paragonimiasis is endemic. 2. In patients with unexplained pleural effusion, pleural fluid should be obtained by thoracentesis. When the results of pleural f luid testing reveal marked eosinophilia, a high lactate dehydrogenase level, and a low glucose level, physicians should consider a diagnosis of pleuropulmonary paragonimiasis.

Proteomic differences with and without ozone-exposure in a smoking-induced emphysema lung model
1. An ozone-induced exacerbation model in smoking-induced emphysema can be used in research related to acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. 2. TBC1 domain family 5 may be a potential biomarker of ozone-induced lung injury in emphysema.

The association between an abnormal post-voiding urine volume and a lower estimated glomerular filtration rate in patients with type 2 diabetes with no voiding symptoms
1. Diabetic cystopathy (DC) is a frequent complication of diabetes mellitus. 2. There was a negative association between estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and post-voiding residual (PVR) and a lower eGFR was a significant risk factor for a PVR urine volume > 50 mL. 3. Patients with diabetic nephropathy should have PVR measured to screen for DC, even if the patients do not complain of any voiding problems.

The efficacy of low-dose transdermal fentanyl in opioid-naïve cancer patients with moderate-to-severe pain
1. In the majority of patients with significant cancer pain, low-dose transdermal fentanyl patch was effective first line medication accompanied by only mild adverse events. 2. Pain relief (numeric rating scale ≤ 3/10) was achieved approximately in a week.
