Parathyroid hormone-related protein (PTHrP) is one of the main factors from tumors causing malignancy associated hypercalcemia. It is also expressed in various kinds of normal tissues including vascular smooth muscle systems. Colocalization of the PTH/PTHrP receptor and locally produced PTHrP and its vasorelaxant activities suggest that PTHrP has a(More)
Parathyroid hormone (PTH) is a key factor involved in the systemic regulation of bone resorption. It is well known that a high turnover of bone occurred together with the reduced bone mass in patients with hyperparathyroidism. However, the effect of subnormal secretion of PTH on age-related bone loss has not been extensively investigated. Recently, some(More)
We report a 6-year-old girl with anaplastic ependymoma probably originating in the region of the conus medullaris and probably spreading retrogradely to the region of the interventricular foramen (Monro) through the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Since ependymoma of the spinal cord rarely occurs in children, and retrograde spreading is extremely rare, the(More)
