Heat Stroke: Increased Signal Intensity in the Bilateral Cerebellar Dentate Nuclei and Splenium on Diffusion-Weighted MR Imaging
Heat stroke is a critical illness characterized by hyperthermia (elevated core body temperature >40°C) with accompanying life-threatening complications. Previous MR imaging findings of heat stroke… Expand
Live attenuated nephropathogenic infectious bronchitis virus vaccine provides broad cross protection against new variant strains
ABSTRACT Infectious bronchitis virus (IBV) infections cause great economic losses to the poultry industry worldwide, and the emergence of new variant strains complicates disease control. The… Expand

Aims: To investigate the sporicidal mechanisms of microwave irradiation on Bacillus licheniformis spores.
Characteristics of non-carious cervical lesions--an ex vivo study using micro computed tomography.
The aetiology of non-carious cervical lesions (NCCLs) is not well understood and still controversial. The aim of this ex-vivo study was to examine the morphological characteristics of NCCLs for… Expand
Nephrin loss in experimental diabetic nephropathy is prevented by deletion of protein kinase C alpha signaling in-vivo.
Albuminuria in diabetic nephropathy is due to endothelial dysfunction, a loss of negative charges in the basement membrane, and changes a of the slit-membrane diaphragm composition. We have recently… Expand
The production of tumour necrosis factor‐alpha is decreased in peripheral blood mononuclear cells from multidrug‐resistant tuberculosis patients following stimulation with the 30‐kDa antigen of…
The clearance of intracellular bacteria requires the appropriate induction of proinflammatory cytokines and chemokines to recruit macrophages and T cells to the site of infection. In this study, we… Expand
The effects of high‐power microwaves on the ultrastructure of Bacillus subtilis
Aims: To investigate the microbicidal mechanisms of high‐power microwave (2·0 kW) irradiation on Bacillus subtilis and to determine the effect of this procedure on the ultrastructure of the cell… Expand

Recent studies have suggested that virulent strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis induce apoptosis in macrophages less often than do attenuated strains. K‐strain, which belongs to the Beijing family,… Expand
Stage-specific embryonic antigen-1 expression by undifferentiated spermatogonia in the prepubertal boar testis.
The objective of this study was to use fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS) and spermatogonial stem cell (SSC) xenotransplantation to identify cell surface markers of putative porcine SSC.… Expand
IL‐18 Production in Human Pulmonary and Pleural Tuberculosis
Interleukin‐18 (IL‐18) has multiple important pro‐inflammatory effects, including the induction of interferon‐γ (IFN‐γ) in various diseases. In this study, we investigated the IL‐18‐producing… Expand
