Human hepatocyte GF (hHGF) has strong neoangiogenesis activity. The present study was designed to investigate the possible involvement of hHGF in neovascularization in proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) by measuring vitreous hHGF concentrations. The mean vitreous hHGF concentration was higher in subjects with PDR (5.70 +/- 0.68 ng/mL, n = 33) than in(More)
Human hepatocyte growth factor (hHGF) is a powerful inducer of angiogenesis. We investigated the relationship between serum hHGF concentrations and proliferative diabetic retinopathy, the major characteristic of which is retinal neovascularization. Serum hHGF concentrations were measured in diabetic (n = 135) and nondiabetic subjects (n = 80). The mean(More)
Somatotopy is a fundamental concept that is essential for the understanding of the functions of the brain. Here, I have described somatotopy in the basal ganglia that comprise the striatum, subthalamic nucleus, globus pallidus, and substantia nigra. Projections from the motor cortical subregions that represent different body parts terminate in different(More)
