Apoptosis, or programmed cell death, resulting from cerebral ischemia may be related to decreased levels of anti-apoptotic factors, such as serine/threonine kinase (Akt), phosphorylated Akt (pAkt), pBAD, and Bcl-2, and increased levels of pro-apoptotic factors, such as BAD, caspase 9, and caspase 3 activities. In this study, we investigated the effects of(More)
The aim of this study was to examine the repeatability of and relationships among spasticity, co-contraction of agonist-antagonist, and muscle strength in children with cerebral palsy (CP). Eight children with spastic diplegic CP (five males, three females; Gross Motor Function Classification System [GMFCS] Levels I-III; mean age 10y 2mo [SD 2y 9mo], range(More)

The expression of the anti-apoptotic molecules Bcl-2 and transforming growth factor-beta 1 is known to confer protective effects on the cerebral ischemia-reperfusion injury. The current study investigated the expression levels of Bcl-2 and transforming growth factor-beta 1 in response to multiple pre-ischemia electro-acupuncture at acupoints Zusanli (ST36)(More)
