We detected a regional defect in the pons with ipsilateral cerebellar hypoperfusion in a patient with acoustic neuroma by brain SPECT with 99mTc HMPAO. A high spatial resolution SPECT system with three detectors equipped with fan-beam collimators was employed. This is the first report of a defect in the brainstem being visualized by perfusion SPECT and this(More)
The effects of inhibitors of polyamine synthesis on the invasive capacity of rat ascites hepatoma (LC-AH) cells were examined by in vitro assay of penetration of the LC-AH cells through a monolayer of calf pulmonary arterial endothelial (CPAE) cells. Pretreatment of LC-AH cells with alpha-difluoromethylornithine (DFMO), an inhibitor of ornithine(More)
This article presents two cases with preserved myocardial 201Tl uptake and absent uptake of two kinds of radioiodinated fatty acids: iodine-123-labeled 15-(p-iodophenyl)-3-(R,S)-methylpentadecanoic acid (BMIPP) and iodine-123-labeled 15-(p-iodophenyl)-9-(R,S)-methylpentadecanoic acid (9MPA). Although coronary angiography showed no stenotic lesion and left(More)
The effect of intraventricular administration of dynorphin-(1-13) on luteinizing hormone (LH) release was studied in castrated conscious rats. The administration of 5 micrograms of dynorphin-(1-13) into the lateral ventricle inhibited LH secretion. Intravenous administration of naloxone blocked this suppressive effect of dynorphin on LH release. These(More)
Attempts were made to isolate and identify the unit chemical structure essential for manifestation of the immunoadjuvant activities characteristic of bacterial cell walls. The N-acetylmuramyl-peptide subunit monomers, Nalpha-(N-acetylmuramyl-L-alanyl-D-isoglutaminyl)-Nepsilon-(glycylglycyl)-L-lysyl-D-alanine from the cell walls of Staphylococcus aureus (FDA(More)
In order to assess the effect of steroid on thallium-201 uptake by glioma,201TI single-photon emission tomography was performed before and after steroid administration in four patients with recurrent malignant glioma. After steroid administration the201Tl index, expressed as the ratio of201Tl uptake in the tumour to that in the contralateral cerebral(More)
A variety of N-acetylmuramyl-peptides (or -amino acids) were prepared by condensation of benzyl N-acetyl-4, 6-O-brnzylidene-alpha-muramide with various peptide (or amino acid) benzyl esters by the dicyclohexylcarbodiimide--N-hydroxysuccinimide or ethylchlorocarbonate--N-methylmorpholine method and removal of the protecting groups by hyderogenolysis.(More)
Tl-201 SPECT was performed on 12 patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) by means of a three-head rotating gamma camera to evaluate whether or not Tl-201 SPECT was useful and reliable for assessing the tumor viability of NPC. Tl-201 clearly accumulated in the tumor in 3 patients before radiation treatment and increased Tl-201 uptake by the lesion(More)
