Responses of m. vastus lateralis to 8-week resistive training of various types at leg press mashine were investigated in 30 male subjects. Training loads were 25, 65 and 85% of one repetition maximum for low (LI), medium (MI), and high intensity (HI) training groups respectively, while angular velocities of contraction differed considerably between groups.(More)
Auditory and visual cognitive event-related potentials (ERPs) were investigated in 14 patients with HTLV-1 associated myelopathy (HAM) and in 36 normal controls. In the HAM patients, the latencies of P300 and N200 by the auditory tone method were significantly delayed, and N100 by the auditory click method was significantly delayed in latency. No abnormal(More)
To analyze outcomes and toxicities of stereotactic body radiotherapy with helical tomotherapy (HT-SBRT) for inoperable lung tumors, the medical records of 30 patients with 31 lung tumors treated with HT-SBRT were reviewed. The 3-year local control, cause-specific survival and overall survival rates (LC, CCS and OS, respectively) were analyzed using the(More)
We treated a 1-year-old female with a hypothalamic hamartoma and precocious puberty with leuprolide acetate depot, a super long-acting hormone-releasing hormone analogue (Tap-144-SR; [D-Leu6-[des-Gly10-NH2] LH-RH ethylamide acetate). The infant's major symptoms were genital bleeding and gynaecomastia. The LH-RH analogue (30 micrograms/kg) was injected(More)
INTRODUCTION Radiotherapy is a standard treatment for prostate cancer, and image-guided radiotherapy is increasingly being used to aid precision of dose delivery to targeted tissues. However, precision during radiotherapy cannot be maintained when unexpected intrafraction organ motion occurs. CASE PRESENTATION We report our experience of internal organ(More)
To study the cognitive function in 13 patients with sequelae of subacute myelo-optico-neuropathy (SMON), event-related potentials (ERPs) were elicited with tones, clicks, and colored visual stimuli in different tasks. P300 latency was delayed, and P300 amplitude reduced or absent in 5 patients (38%), although neuropsychological assessment for dementia did(More)
We measured six apolipoproteins (AI, AII, B, CII, CIII, and E) in the serum of patients with several kinds of neural diseases [diabetic neuropathy and neural degenerative disorders (motor neuron degenerative disorders, spinocerebellar degeneration, Parkinson's disease)], comparing them to the age-matched healthy controls using the immunoturbidimetric(More)
Cognitive potential using two-tone auditory discrimination task has been widely used as a standard and useful test to quantify the severity of cognitive dysfunction. According to our experience, however, this method (the T method), sometimes cannot be performed even in normal elderly subjects because of difficult discrimination between these two different(More)
A thirty-four-year-old man was admitted to our hospital because of the disturbed visual acuity and pain on the eye movement of the right eye. He had prominent right eye and CT-scan and MRI of the brain disclosed a tumor which could be obviously distinguished from the extraocular muscles, optic nerve and the bulb of eye in the retrobulbar region.
