In previous studies, we showed that basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) reduced infarct volume when infused intravenously in animal models of focal cerebral ischemia. In the current study, we examined the potential mechanism of infarct reduction by bFGF, especially effects on apoptosis within the ischemic brain. We found that bFGF decreased DNA(More)
Block copolymer nanopaticles were prepared from the mixture solutions containing good/poor solvents by a simple evaporation process. The block copolymers formed disorder, unidirectionally stacked lamellar, and onion-like structures in nanoparticles depending on preparation temperatures. Thermal annealing induced the disorder-order phase transition and(More)
A far ir interferometric spectrometer with a special electronic computer has been constructed. The interferometer is of the conventional Michelson type. The electronic computer, which consists of an analog computer to introduce apodization and a digital computer to calculate the Fourier cosine transform, is fed with the detector output of the interferometer(More)
Basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) is a polypeptide with potent survival-promoting and protective effects on brain cells. In previous studies, we showed that intravenous administration of bFGF reduced infarct volume in models of focal cerebral ischemia in rats, mice, and cats. In these previous studies, infarct volume was measured within 1-7days of the(More)
A triblock terpolymer, polystyrene-block-polybutadiene-block-poly(methyl methacrylate) (SBM), formed a double-helical nanoscale structure, composed of polybutadiene (PB) helical microdomains around hexagonally packed polystyrene (PS) cores in a poly(methyl methacrylate) matrix. The orientation of double-helical morphologies at various film thicknesses were(More)
