This study examined the total polyphenol content of eight wild edible plants from Ethiopia and their effect on NO production in Raw264.7 cells. Owing to its relatively high polyphenol concentration and inhibition of NO production, the methanol extract of Adansonia digitata L. leaf (MEAD) was subjected to detailed evaluation of its antioxidant and(More)
The oncogenic RAS-selective lethal small molecule Erastin triggers a unique iron-dependent form of nonapoptotic cell death termed ferroptosis. Ferroptosis is dependent upon the production of intracellular iron-dependent reactive oxygen species (ROS), but not other metals. However, key regulators remain unknown. The heme oxygenase (HO) is a major(More)
PURPOSE Exercise is commonly recommended to women after breast cancer surgery, yet it is difficult for patients and health professionals to adopt safe and beneficial types and modes of exercise. Thus studies on exercise interventions targeting women with breast cancer treatment were systematically reviewed. METHODS The review process and quality(More)
Objectives: to determine IL-1α and IL-1β levels in patients with bacterial cystitis, microscopic hematuria, and gravid females relative to a control group of normal subjects. Methods: enzyme immunoassays were used to measure concomitantly urinary IL-1α and IL-1β in clean catch urine samples from normal subjects (n=31) and study patients (n=46). All normal(More)
BACKGROUND Brain imaging has shown that not only the cortico-spinal tract (CST), but also alternate corticofugal motor fibers (aMF), such as the cortico-rubro-spinal and cortico-reticulo-spinal tract, influence residual motor output after stroke. So far, studies mainly have investigated each tract separately. A combined analysis of CST and aMF with(More)
BACKGROUND Optimal protocol of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) on post-stroke dysphagia remains uncertain with regard to its clinical efficacy. OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study is to investigate the effects of high-frequency rTMS at the bilateral motor cortices over the cortical representation of the mylohyoid muscles in the(More)
Hydroxide ions that are initially buried within an ice film segregate to the ice film surface at elevated temperatures. This process was observed by conducting experiments with an ice film constructed with a bottom H(2)O layer and an upper D(2)O layer, with an excess of hydroxide ions trapped at the H(2)O/D(2)O interface as they were generated by Na(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of simultaneous, bihemispheric, dual-mode stimulation using repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) on motor functions and cortical excitability in healthy individuals. METHODS Twenty-five healthy, right-handed volunteers (10 men, 15 women; mean age, 25.5(More)
446 Background: Renal cell ca (RCC) is one of solid tumor with relatively highest incidence of venous thromboembolism (VTE). But, there have been to no large-scale studies that focused on VTE in RCC. The aim of this study was to investigate the incidence, time course of VTE, risk factors, and prognosis associated with VTE in RCC patients in Korea. METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVES To confirm the interhemispheric modulation induced by low-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) over the primary motor cortex, real-time regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) was assessed using functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) in the contralateral primary motor cortex (M1) and premotor cortex (PM).
