Three siblings with genetically assessed cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy (CADASIL) with core-like lesions and mitochondrial abnormalities in muscles are described. Involvement of the Ryanodine receptor 1 gene was excluded. In the current cases, the relation between molecular genetic lesion and(More)
BACKGROUND Malignant hyperthermia (MH) is a fatal autosomal dominant pharmacogenetic disorder characterized by skeletal muscle hypertonicity that causes a sudden increase in body temperature after exposure to common anesthetic agents. The disease is genetically heterogeneous, with mutations in the gene encoding the skeletal muscle ryanodine receptor (RYR1)(More)
Ischemia reperfusion injury (IRI) in organ transplantation remains a serious and unsolved problem. Organs that undergo significant damage during IRI, function less well immediately after reperfusion and tend to have more problems at later times when rejection can occur. Biliverdin has emerged as an agent that potently suppress IRI in rodent models. Since(More)
Animal models of para-renal cancer can provide useful information for the evaluation of tumor response to loco-regional therapy experiments in solid tumors. The aim of our study was to establish a rabbit para-renal cancer model using locally implanted VX2 tumors. In order to generate a rabbit model of para-renal cancer, we established four hind limb donor(More)
