3D4ALL: Toward an Inclusive Pipeline to Classify 3D Contents [article]

Nahyun Kwon, Chen Liang, Jeeeun Kim
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Algorithmic content moderation manages an explosive number of user-created content shared online everyday. Despite a massive number of 3D designs that are free to be downloaded, shared, and 3D printed by the users, detecting sensitivity with transparency and fairness has been controversial. Although sensitive 3D content might have a greater impact than other media due to its possible reproducibility and replicability without restriction, prevailed unawareness resulted in proliferation of

As the 3D content exists as a document on the web mainly consisting of text and images, we first study the existing algorithmic efforts based on text and images and the prior endeavors to encompass transparency and fairness in moderation, which can also be useful in a 3D printing domain. At the same time, we identify 3D specific features that should be addressed to advance a 3D specialized algorithmic moderation. As a potential solution, we suggest a human-in-the-loop pipeline using augmented learning, powered by various stakeholders with different backgrounds and perspectives in understanding the content. Our pipeline aims to minimize personal biases by enabling diverse stakeholders to be vocal in reflecting various factors to interpret the content. We add our initial proposal for redesigning metadata of open 3D repositories, to invoke users' responsible actions of being granted consent from the subject upon sharing contents for free in the public spaces.

Modeling Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) Using "Good-Fit" Genome-Editing Tools

Uijin Kim, Nahyun Kim, Ha Youn Shin
2020 Cells  
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), which affects both adults and children, is the most common liver disorder worldwide. NAFLD is characterized by excess fat accumulation in the liver in the absence of significant alcohol use. NAFLD is strongly associated with obesity, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, as well as specific genetic polymorphisms. Severe NAFLD cases can further progress to cirrhosis, hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), or cardiovascular complications. Here, we describe
more » ... pathophysiological features and critical genetic variants associated with NAFLD. Recent advances in genome-engineering technology have provided a new opportunity to generate in vitro and in vivo models that reflect the genetic abnormalities of NAFLD. We review the currently developed NAFLD models generated using clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats/CRISPR-associated protein 9 (CRISPR/Cas9) genome editing. We further discuss unique features of CRISPR/Cas9 and Cas9 variants, including base editors and prime editor, that are useful for replicating genetic features specific to NAFLD. We also compare advantages and limitations of currently available methods for delivering genome-editing tools necessary for optimal genome editing. This review should provide helpful guidance for selecting "good fit" genome-editing tools and appropriate gene-delivery methods for the successful development of NAFLD models and clinical therapeutics.

Creative Compensation (CC): Future of Jobs with Creative Works in 3D Printing [article]

Chen Liang, Nahyun Kwon, Jeeeun Kim
2021 arXiv   pre-print
With the continuous growth of online 3D printing community and the democratization of 3D printers, growing number of users start sharing their own 3D designs on open platforms, enabling a wide audience to search, download, and 3D print models for free. Although sharing is mostly for altruistic reasons at first, open platforms had also created potential job opportunities to compensate creative labors. This paper analyzes new job opportunities emerged in online 3D printing social platforms and

We find that offering exclusive membership through subscriptions, selling final products or printing services through web stores, and using affiliate links are primary means of earning profits, while there exist gaps between creators' expectations and realities. We show that various socio-economic promises emerged, leading to a win-win situation for both creators to gain extra income and audiences to have access to more quality content. We also discuss future challenges that need to be addressed, such as ethical use of opensource content.

Factors Influencing Rehabilitation among Cancer Survivors

Jooyeon Park, Nahyun Kim
2017 Korean Journal of Adult Nursing  
Purpose: The objective of the study was to identify impact of depression, fatigue, family support, and resilience on rehabilitation among cancer survivors. Methods: One hundred and twenty-four participants who visited an out-patient department were recruited from a university hospital in Korea. An inclusion criterion was no reported relapse following the primary cancer treatment. Data were collected from July 1st to August 31st, 2014. Data analysis included an independent t-test, ANOVA, Pearson

Results: Rehabilitation of those with colon and breast cancer was significantly correlated with depression, fatigue, family support and resilience. In a regression analysis, cancer rehabilitation accounted for 79.2% of the variance of depression, fatigue, monthly household income and resilience. The most significant factor affecting the success of rehabilitation was depression (β=-0.39, p<.001). Conclusion: The results of the study indicate the importance of managing depression for the successful rehabilitation of cancer survivors. Nurses should prioritize the development and implementation of effective interventions for the improvement of rehabilitation among cancer survivors.

Deficiency of Capicua disrupts bile acid homeostasis

Eunjeong Kim, Sungjun Park, Nahyun Choi, Jieon Lee, Jeehyun Yoe, Soeun Kim, Hoe-Yune Jung, Kyong-Tai Kim, Hyojin Kang, John D. Fryer, Huda Y. Zoghbi, Daehee Hwang (+1 others)
2015 Scientific Reports  
Capicua (CIC) has been implicated in pathogenesis of spinocerebellar ataxia type 1 and cancer in mammals; however, the in vivo physiological functions of CIC remain largely unknown. Here we show that Cic hypomorphic (Cic-L -/-) mice have impaired bile acid (BA) homeostasis associated with induction of proinflammatory cytokines. We discovered that several drug metabolism and BA transporter genes were down-regulated in Cic-L -/liver, and that BA was increased in the liver and serum whereas bile

Consistent with this finding, levels of hepatic transcriptional regulators, such as hepatic nuclear factor 1 alpha (HNF1a), CCAAT/enhancer-binding protein beta (C/EBPb), forkhead box protein A2 (FOXA2), and retinoid X receptor alpha (RXRa), were markedly decreased in Cic-L -/mice. Moreover, induction of tumor necrosis factor alpha (Tnfa) expression and decrease in the levels of FOXA2, C/EBPb, and RXRa were found in Cic-L -/liver before BA was accumulated, suggesting that inflammation might be the cause for the cholestasis in Cic-L -/mice. Our findings indicate that CIC is a critical regulator of BA homeostasis, and that its dysfunction might be associated with chronic liver disease and metabolic disorders.

The Safe Baculovirus-Based PrM/E DNA Vaccine Protected Fetuses Against Zika Virus in A129 Mice

Hanul Choi, Jungmin Chun, Mina Park, Suyeon Kim, Nahyun Kim, Hee-Jung Lee, Minjee Kim, Ha Youn Shin, Yu-Kyoung Oh, Young Bong Kim
2021 Vaccines  
The Zika virus (ZIKV) is a mosquito-borne member of the Flaviviridae family of enveloped RNA viruses. The correlation between viral infection and fetal microcephaly was revealed in 2015, yet we still lack a vaccine against ZIKV. Here, we present a genetic vaccine that delivers the premembrane (prM) and envelope (E) genes of ZIKV using a recombinant baculovirus vector that expresses a human endogenous retrovirus (HERV) envelope on its surface to enhance gene delivery. We observed that

Using the AcHERV baculovirus vector, we constructed a recombinant baculovirus vaccine encoding ZIKV prM/E genes (AcHERV-ZIKV), which are major targets of neutralizing antibodies. Mice immunized twice with AcHERV-ZIKV exhibited high levels of IgG, neutralizing antibodies, and IFN-γ. In challenge tests in IFN knock-out mice (A129), AcHERV-ZIKV showed complete protection in both challenge and pregnancy tests. These results suggest that AcHERV-ZIKV could be a potential vaccine candidate for human application.

The Lived Experience of Anger in Elderly Women with Aggressive Tendency

Jung Hwa Han, Eun Ja Kim, Jin Sook Hyun, Nahyun Kim
2016 Journal of Korean Gerontological Nursing  
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to describe the essential structure of the lived experience of aggressive elderly women's anger. Methods: Seven elderly women with aggressive tendency were interviewed. Colaizzi analysis of phenomenological research was applied. Results: The meaning of experiences were identified as four categories from eight theme clusters and fourteen themes. The four categories were 'Lamenting over life that has been disrespected', 'Uncontrollable and deep resentment',
more » ... Rationalization for anger', 'Embers of the fire that have never been extinguished'. Conclusion: The findings of this study reveal a close similarity between the anger of older women and the anger of different age groups. However, this study is significant because the data came from an in-depth examination of aggressive older women's anger vented in the Korean social-cultural context, offering ample understanding of this anger. The results of this study can be used to develop diverse physical, psychological and social programs to help older women control and relieve their anger and have a healthier lifestyle.
