Two potent endogenous opioid peptides, endomorphin-1 (EM-1) and -2 (EM-2), which are selective micro-opioid agonists, have been identified from bovine and human brain. These endomorphins were demonstrated to produce a potent anti-allodynic effect at spinal level. In the present study, we further investigated their supraspinal anti-allodynic effects and(More)
We construct an MSSM-like model from intersecting D-branes in Type IIA theory on the Z 2 × Z ′ 2 orientifold where the D-branes wrap rigid 3-cycles. Because the 3-cycles are rigid, there are no extra massless fields in the adjoint representation, arising as open-string moduli. The presence of these unobserved fields would create difficulties with asymptotic(More)
BACKGROUND There is a paucity of information regarding pediatric dental emergencies in Taiwan. This study investigates the prevalence and characteristics of the pediatric dental emergency services provided at a medical center. METHODS This study included a retrospective chart review of patients under 18 years of age with dental complaints who visited the(More)
BACKGROUND Urinary homovanillic acid (HVA)/vanillylmandelic acid (VMA), orotic acid (OA), and homogentisic acid (HGA) are diagnostic biomarkers of neuroblastoma, ornithine carbamoyl transferase deficiency (OCTD), and alkaptonuria (AKU), respectively. In this study, a high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) method was(More)
