Statin use associated with a reduced risk of pneumonia requiring hospitalization in patients with myocardial infarction: a nested case-control study

Background Statins have been reported to prevent adverse cardiovascular events in patients with myocardial infarction (MI). However, the association of statin use and the risk of pneumonia requiring hospitalization in MI patients remains unclear. Methods A nested case-control study was conducted by using data from the National Health Insurance Research Database of Taiwan. Among...

Risks of Breast and Endometrial Cancer in Women with Diabetes: A Population-Based Cohort Study

Objective We investigated the overall and age-specific risks of developing breast and endometrial cancer among women with diabetes in a population-based cohort study. Methods Women with diabetes (n = 319310) and age-matched controls (n = 319308), selected from ambulatory care claims and beneficiary registry in 2000, respectively were linked to the in-patient claims (2000–2008) to...

Risk of Parkinson Disease Onset in Patients With Diabetes: A 9-year population-based cohort study with age and sex stratifications

OBJECTIVE We retrospectively assessed the age- and sex-specific incidence and relative risk of Parkinson disease (PD) in Taiwan’s diabetic population.

Molecular profile and copy number analysis of sporadic colorectal cancer in Taiwan

Background Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a major health concern worldwide, and recently becomes the most common cancer in Asia. The case collection of this study is one of the largest sets of CRC in Asia, and serves as representative data for investigating genomic differences between ethnic populations. We took comprehensive and high-resolution approaches to compare the...

Copy Number Change of the NDM-1 Sequence in a Multidrug-Resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae Clinical Isolate

The genetic features of the antimicrobial resistance of a multidrug resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae strain harboring blaNDM-1 were investigated to increase our understanding of the evolution of NDM-1. The strain, KPX, came from a Taiwanese patient with a hospitalization history in New Delhi. Complete DNA sequencing was performed; and the genes responsible for antimicrobial...

TPMD: a database and resources of microsatellite marker genotyped in Taiwanese populations

Taiwan Polymorphic Marker Database (TPMD) (http://tpmd.nhri.org.tw/) is a marker database designed to provide experimental details and useful marker information allelotyped in Taiwanese populations accompanied by resources and technical supports. The current version deposited more than 372 000 allelotyping data from 1425 frequently used and fluorescent-labeled microsatellite...
