BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Activators of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma (PPARgamma), a member of the PPAR family, increase levels of CuZn-superoxide dismutase (SOD) in cultured endothelium, suggesting a mechanism by which it may exert its protective effect within the brain. These properties raise the question of whether a PPARgamma agonist may(More)
The purpose of this study was to clarify the kinetics of nitric oxide (NO) induced by either endothelial NO synthase (eNOS) or neuronal NO synthase (nNOS) after transient global forebrain ischemia. We investigated NO production and ischemic changes to hippocampal CA1 neurons in eNOS knockout (-/-) mice and nNOS (-/-) mice during cerebral ischemia and(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Cervicocephalic arterial dissection can cause both ischemic stroke and hemorrhagic stroke. However, spontaneous cervicocephalic arterial dissection presenting only with headache and neck pain has rarely been reported. The clinical features of patients with spontaneous cervicocephalic arterial dissection presenting only with headache(More)

Three days after admission, she was unable to generate any voluntary movements, except for those of the eye, suggesting locked-in syndrome (LIS). She could not speak, but showed good(More)
