Adult granulosa cell tumor (GCT) of the ovary is mostly diagnosed in postmenopausal women.

This study reviews the cytologic features of adult GCT of the ovary diagnosed by fine-needle aspiration (FNA). We reviewed slides from ten cases diagnosed by(More)
AIM We investigated whether aliskiren, a direct renin inhibitor, provided protection in a model of diabetic nephropathy in mice and compared its protective effects to valsartan, an angiotensin II type 1 receptor blocker. MATERIALS AND METHODS Hyperglycemia was induced with streptozotocin (STZ, 40 mg/kg/day × 5 days) injection in DBA/2J mice fed on a high(More)

Such nonlocal information, whether obtained visually,(More)
