MATERIAL AND METHODS We clinically, pathologically and genetically studied six CMTX patients with distinct symptoms and four different GJB1 mutations.

A new method of cyclophosphamide (CP)-induced skin allograft tolerance in mice that can regularly overcome fully allogeneic (major H-2 plus non-H-2) antigen barriers in mice has been established. The components of the method are intravenous or intraperitoneal administration of 50-100 micrograms of anti-Thy-1.2 mAb on day -1, intravenous injection of 90 x(More)
When C3H (H-2k, Mls-1b) mice were primed intravenously with 10(8) viable spleen cells from AKR (H-2k, Mls-1a) and treated intraperitoneally with 200 mg/kg of cyclophosphamide (CP) 2 d later, not only a long-lasting skin allograft tolerance but also a tolerance in mixed lymphocyte reaction to Mls-1a-encoded antigens was established. The cellular mechanisms(More)
A 29-year-old Japanese man with Duchenne muscular dystrophy was placed on a mechanical ventilator support at 23 years of age and admitted to our hospital at 25 years of age. He had severe neck contracture deviated to the left side which resulted in dysphagia and microaspiration. At 29 years of age, he developed left lobar pneumonia accompanied by slight(More)
