Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) are life-threatening, cutaneous adverse drug reactions that are accompanied by keratinocyte cell death. Dead keratinocytes from SJS/TEN lesions exhibited necrosis, by morphological criteria. Supernatant from peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) that had been exposed to the causative(More)
BACKGROUND Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) are life-threatening cutaneous reactions caused by drugs or infections and exhibiting widespread epidermal necrosis. Currently, there is no animal model that reproduces SJS/TEN symptoms. OBJECTIVE We sought to develop a novel mouse model of SJS/TEN by using PBMCs and skin from(More)
Due to the lack of a gold standard method in canine lipoprotein analysis, it is unclear whether canine high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) can be accurately evaluated by the lipoprotein analysis methods used for dogs. This study investigated whether the ultracentrifugation-precipitation (U-P) method was suitable as a gold(More)
