It has been proposed that the local renin-angiotensin system is activated in the adventitia after vascular injury. However, the physiological role of Angiotensin II (Ang II) in the adventitia has not been studied at a cellular level. This study was designed to assess the role of Ang II in the growth response of cultured adventitial fibroblasts (AFs).(More)
Patients with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) have lower heart rate variability (HRV) than the general population, but findings in this area have been inconsistent. This study was conducted to investigate the characteristics of HRV in patients with PTSD and to evaluate associations between PTSD symptoms and HRV indices. Sixty-eight patients with PTSD(More)
Both the formation of long-term memory (LTM) and dendritic spine growth that serves as a physical basis for the long-term storage of information require de novo protein synthesis. Memory formation also critically depends on transcription. Adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is a transcriptional regulator that has emerged as a major(More)
The Symptom Checklist - Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Scale (SCL-PTSD), also known as Crime-Related PTSD Scale has been validated in survivors of interpersonal trauma in the general population. However, the psychometric properties have not been investigated in a clinical setting for patients with PTSD from diverse traumatic events. This study investigates(More)
We experienced an unusual case of cardiac tamponde caused by a rupture of the coronary arteriovenous aneurysm in a 54-year-old woman. The patient was suffered from sudden chest pain and syncope, and was initially managed by pericardiocentesis following an echocardiogram which revealed a massive pericardial effusion with signs of cardiac tamponade. She was(More)
s | 53 Scale-18(BPRS-18) at the baseline, 6 weeks, 6 months, and 12 months after the baseline. Changes of BPRS-18 scores across time were analyzed by repeated measure ANOVA. To identify which factor is related to additional improvement with longterm use of clozapine, subjects were classified into 2 groups; clozapine-responsive group and clozapine-resistant(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate the efficacy and tolerability of atypical antipsychotics (AAPs) with augmentation by blonanserin in schizophrenic patients. METHODS aA total of 100 patients with schizophrenia who were partially or completely unresponsive to treatment with an AAP were recruited in this 12-week, open-label,(More)
