Fetal striatal cells were grafted into the ischemic striatum of rats and pallidal GABA release, and behavioral improvement were investigated. Intraluminal occlusion of the middle cerebral artery (MCA) for 1 h induced ischemic infarcts in the lateral striatum and the adjacent cortex. In ischemic rats, the performance of a passive avoidance task was(More)
Rifampicin, an antibacterial drug, is highly effective in the treatment of tuberculosis and leprosy. Recently, it has been reported to have neuroprotective effects in in vitro and in vivo models. This study was designed to elucidate its neuroprotective effects against 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP)-induced neurotoxicity (known as an in(More)
Synaptic release of the excitatory amino acid glutamate is considered as an important mechanism in the pathogenesis of ischemic brain damage in neonates. Synaptotagmin I is one of exocytosis-related proteins at nerve terminals and considered to accelerate the exocytosis of synaptic vesicles by promoting fusion between the vesicles and plasma membrane. To(More)
We have developed a novel autoradiographic method of visualizing oxygen fixation with sufficient delivery of [(15)O]O(2)/O(2). Brain slices (400 microm) were preincubated in Krebs-Ringer phosphate buffer and exposed to [(15)O]O(2) in a chamber. Fixation of [(15)O]O(2) correlated with the polarographically measured oxygen consumption among tissue slices from(More)
[Purpose] This study was conducted to investigate ultrasonically determined changes in the thickness of the transversus abdominis and internal oblique muscles during different sitting conditions. [Subjects and Methods] Twenty healthy men volunteered to participate in this study. Four different sitting conditions including (A) sitting, (B) sitting with left(More)
To examine the effects of hyperglycemia on a transient ischemia in the neonatal brain, neuropathological and biochemical evaluations were performed. In 10-day-old rats, brain ischemia was induced by permanent occlusion of the right external and internal carotid and subclavian arteries and the clamping of the left external and internal carotid arteries for(More)
