Autophagy is the bulk degradation of cytoplasmic constituents in response to starvation and other environmental or intracellular cues. During this process, most of the cytoplasm is sequestered into autophagosomes, which then fuse with lysosomes where the degradation of the sequestered material proceeds. We investigated the relationship between(More)
BACKGROUND Recently, a novel percutaneous adhesive tulobuterol preparation, HN-078, has been developed and tests using healthy adult subjects have indicated it to be effective for controlling exacerbations early in the morning if applied at bedtime. In children, percutaneous application is very important to eliminate side effects, including abdominal pain(More)
The incidence of latex-induced allergy has been reported to be increasing in Europe and the US but not in Japan. We thus measured latex-specific IgE antibodies and latex-specific IgG antibodies in sera from 196 atopic children with low serum IgE levels (under 1,000 U/ml; group 1), 108 atopic children with high serum IgE levels (over 1,000 U/ml; group 2) and(More)
A 70-year-old male with renal cell carcinoma extending into the retrohepatic inferior vena cava was scheduled for radical nephrectomy with vena caval resection under general anesthesia. He had received partial gastrectomy for gastric cancer twelve years before. Computed tomography and inferior vena cavography confirmed that the vena cava was almost(More)
Assessments have been made of serum IgE and IgA value, specific IgE and IgG4 antibody titers to foods, house dust, mite and percent peripheral++ eosinophil count in 191 infants with and without eczema between 5-7 months of age. Eczema patients were divided into 4 groups according to the degree of eczema involvement and laboratory data were compared between(More)
In our Department, continuous isoproterenol inhalation therapy has been conducted on status asthmatics over the last 10 years. In the present study, we investigated whether there are any differences in the therapeutic efficacy of continuous inhalation of isoproterenol in the presence or absence of respiratory infections which may induce or aggravate asthma(More)
The author made an assessment in his first report, regarding relationship to the degree of skin involvement. As a result, it was suggested that the extent of eczema is a good index for determining the severity of the allergy and also that the severity of the allergy early in the infancy has a good correlation with egg white.specific IgE antibody. Therefore,(More)
In Japan, various types of MRI equipment, having varying magnetic field strengths, are widely used. However, the biggest problem encountered while utilizing an MRI is the scarcity of information and guidelines pertaining to implants, internal, and external metallic objects. This leads to uncertainty when an unspecified object is encountered during an(More)
The bronchodilatory response to procaterol delivery by a metered dose inhaler with a spacer device (Volumatic) and a corniced extension tube was studied in a double blind manner in 18 asthmatic children, who were brought to our emergency room with acute attacks. The mean percent increase in forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) with the Volumatic was(More)
