The endocannabinoid system in animals and humans is involved in the onset of diverse diseases, including obesity and diabetic nephropathy, which is a major end-stage renal disease characterized by high glucose (HG)-induced apoptosis of mesangial cells. Endocannabinoids induce physiological and behavioral effects by activating two specific receptors,(More)
Formaldehyde (FA) is an important substance that induces sick house syndrome and diseases, such as asthma and allergies. Oxidative stress is involved in the development of respiratory disease, and diverse antioxidants may protect respiratory tract cells from apoptosis. Peroxiredoxin is a pivotal endogenous antioxidant. In the present study, FA induced death(More)
[Purpose] To determine the effect of dual-task training with cognitive tasks on cognitive and walking ability after stroke. [Subjects and Methods] Twenty patients diagnosed with stroke participated in this study. All participants were receiving a traditional rehabilitation program 5 days a week. Dual-task and single-task training were additionally performed(More)
[Purpose] The purpose of this study was to examine the effects on stroke patients of trunk stabilization exercise on different support surfaces. [Subjects and Methods] Sixteen stroke patients with onset of stroke six months earlier or longer were randomly and equally assigned to group I (exercise performed on a stable support surface) and group II (exercise(More)
Formaldehyde (FA) is toxic to the respiratory system, and nitric oxide (NO) dysfunction stimulates the onset of respiratory diseases. The involvement of dimethylarginine dimethylaminohydrolase (DDAH), the l-arginine analogue asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) degrading enzyme, in FA-induced cell death in lung epithelial cells has not been investigated. In(More)
Excessive sustained activation of glutamate receptors can kill neurons, particularly under conditions of reduced energy, availability and increased oxidative stress(1). This phenomenon, which is called excitotoxicity, can be dramatically demonstrated by exposing cultured neurons to high concentrations of glutamate and by exposing animals to excitotoxins(More)
[Purpose] The purpose of this research was to analyze the efficacy of extracorporeal shock wave therapy for the treatment of stroke patients with plantar fasciitis. [Subjects and Methods] This study included 10 stroke patients diagnosed with plantar fasciitis who were administered 3 sessions of extracorporeal shock wave therapy per week. After the last(More)
The motor injury were took damage of the cerebral motor cortex, premotor cortex, motor pathway(motor tract) and related fibers, cerebrumandcerebellumpassage between the association pathways in the ischemic and/or hemorrhagic caused stroke(1). Especially, an experimental method that middle cerebral artery occlusion(MCAo) in the focal ischemic brain damage(More)
