We measured prostaglandin E2 and leukotriene B4 in the aqueous humor of baboon eyes, 1 or 8 days after phacoemulsification, with or without posterior chamber lens implantation. We also evaluated the effects of steroid eye drops and cyclooxygenase inhibitor eye drops on the synthesis of these mediators of inflammation. Eyes that had undergone(More)
We determined the concentration dependent effects of arachidonic acid between 0.3 and 30 x 10(-6) M on corneal epithelial migration, in an organ culture system of the rabbit cornea. With 3 x 10(-6) M arachidonic acid, corneal epithelial migration was maximally stimulated by 51%. The cyclooxygenase inhibitors, indomethacin, ketoprofen, flurbiprofen and(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the usage of tooth autotransplantation in dental clinics which offer the treatment and evaluate its practicality. Participating dentists were requested to provide information on transplantations they had undertaken from 1 January 1990 to 31 December 2010. A total of 614 teeth from 552 patients (37 dentists) ranging(More)
The anti-inflammatory effects of betamethasone and its derivatives (betamethasone 21-phosphate, betamethasone 21-acetate, betamethasone 17-valerate, clobetasol 17-propionate and betamethasone dipropionate) on endotoxin-induced uveitis (EIU) in rats was investigated. Among the compounds examined, betamethasone, betamethasone 21-phosphate, betamethasone(More)
The effects of linolenic acid hydroperoxide (LAPO) on isolated rat lenses were investigated, because they are believed to be cataractogenic in vivo. They were also compared with the effect of linolenic acid (LA), source of LAPO. Rat lenses, which were exposed for 5 hr to either 210 microM or 420 microM LAPO, became cloudy and this change was associated with(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the risk factors affecting long-term prognosis of autotransplantation of third molars with complete root formation in males at dental clinics. Participating dentists were requested to provide information on transplantations they had undertaken from 1 January 1990 to 31 December 2010. Data on a total of 708 teeth from(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate risk factors affecting 5- and 10-year survival in autotransplantation of third molars with complete root formation at dental clinics. Participating dentists were requested to provide information on transplantations performed between 1 January 1990 and 31 December 2009. After data screening and elimination, 183 teeth(More)
l-Tetrahydroberberine-d-camphor sulfonate (THB-CS) possessed an inhibitory effect on apomorphine-induced chewing movement in a similar manner to that of tetrahydroberberine (THB). Both compounds enhanced barbiturate-induced hypnosis. They did not have an anticonvulsant effect on convulsive seizures induced by bicuculline, pentetrazole or strychnine. THB and(More)
