Using data from 17 patients with liver cirrhosis and 3 patients with fatty liver, we have compared the utility of 3 hepatic imaging agents in the evaluation of hepatic functional reserve. Evaluated here were 99mTc-galactosyl human serum albumin (GSA) which is a new ligand for hepatic binding protein, 99mTc-N-pyridoxyl-5-methyl tryptophan (PMT) of a(More)
Eukaryotic horizontal gene transfer (HGT) events are increasingly being discovered yet few reports have summarized multiple occurrences in a wide range of species. We systematically investigated HGT events in the order Lepidoptera by employing a series of filters. Bombyx mori, Danaus plexippus and Heliconius melpomene had 13, 12 and 12 HGTs, respectively,(More)
PURPOSE Inhibition of protein kinase C (PKC) activity has been demonstrated to reduce thermotolerance (TT), presumably by decreasing heat shock protein (HSP) production. Therefore, the interest was in evaluating this relationship further in two isogenic murine tumour cell lines: RIF-1 and its thermoresistant TR-4 selectant. MATERIALS AND METHODS TT was(More)
The utility of 99mTc-mercaptoacetyltriglycine (MAG3) with studied clinically. In the renography obtained with 99mTc-MAG3, the abdominal aorta and the common iliac arteries were clearly visualized in the vascular phase. Due to less background activity and high target to background ratio, the quality of 99mTc-MAG3 image was superior to that of 123I-OIH or(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the control of blood glucose and glycosylated hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) and its influencing factors, in elderly type 2 diabetic mellitus (T2DM) patients undergoing comprehensive management. After years of comprehensive prevention of and control measures for diabetes, elderly T2DM patients who were receiving long-term(More)
