Myasthenia gravis (MG) is an autoimmune disorder generally mediated by antibodies against the acetylcholine receptors (AChR) of the skeletal muscles. CD4 T cells help B cells to produce antibodies through their production of cytokines or chemokines. In this study, we evaluated the frequency of regulatory (Treg) and IL-17 producing CD4 T-cell subsets (Th17)(More)
This paper proposes a method for automatic extraction of the form of a single neuron from image series which are captured with confocal laser scanning microscopic (CLSM). Deficiency parts appear in binary images through extraction process because of noises in CLSM images. It is needed manual operation to compensate it. Our method connects some discrete(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between the structure of the foot arch and postural control in the elderly. Ratio of midfoot pressure (RMP) and CoP was measured in 87 healthy elderly and 56 frail elderly using the Shoe Type Stabilometer we developed. As a result, a significant correlation was recognized between the RMP which(More)
Myasthenia gravis (MG) is an autoimmune disorder generally mediated by antibodies against the acetylcholine receptors of the skeletal muscles. Depending on the disease burden, MG patients may experience chronic dysregulation of both the hormonal stress axis and the immune system, consequently, aggravating the disease itself but also leading to secondary(More)
This paper presents a proposal of a method for interpolation of cross-sectional area of a premotor neuron in a silkworm moth brain for form reconstruction of the neuron. We have proposed a method for the automatic interpolation of partial deficiencies which occur in extraction processes of the form of a neuron because of noise in CLSM images. However,(More)
