( f ) #1120 (e) #0940 (d) #0760 Fig.3 CG animation of pianist's musical performance (180 frame intervals). Motor area that controls the movements of the human body is divided functionally into each control region. In the motor area, the area of the hand is almost the same as the total area of arm, torso and lower body. This physiological fact indicates that(More)
Recurrence of urethral stricture after single internal urethrotomy was investigated in 66 patients with special reference to some factors which would influence restricturing. In the present study, recurrence rate was 16.7% (11 patients). Recurrences occurred within an average of 11.9 months. Factors that had no influence on restricturing were age,(More)
Heat shock protein (Hsp) 90 is a key regulator of various oncogene products and cell-signaling molecules, while Hsp70 protects against heat-induced apoptosis. We previously described a system in which hyperthermia was produced using thermosensitive ferromagnetic particles (FMPs) with a Curie temperature (T c) of 43 °C to mediate automatic temperature(More)
Hormonal replacement therapy was carried out on 24 postmenopausal women who had chronic irritative lower urinary tract symptoms without definable causes. They all underwent bacteriological, endoscopic and urodynamic evaluations, and were diagnosed as having no abnormalities. Depot estradiol (4 mg i.m.) was administered for 2 months at 2-weekly intervals.(More)
To evaluate the renal toxicity of intravenous administration of ioversol and iohexol, the urinary N-acetyl-β-glucosaminidase (NAG) to creatinine ratio was measured before and after drip infusion pyelography. Thirty patients received intravenous ioversol and 29 patients received iohexol. The urinary NAG to creatinine ratio tended to increase after respective(More)
Heat shock protein (Hsp) 90 is a key regulator of a variety of oncogene products and cell-signaling molecules, and the therapeutic benefit of its inhibition in combination with radiation or chemotherapy has been investigated. In addition, hyperthermia has been used for many years to treat various malignant tumors. We previously described a system in which(More)
Hyperthermia has been used for many years to treat a variety of malignant tumors. The Curie temperature (Tc) is a transition point at which magnetic materials lose their magnetic properties, causing a cessation of current and thus heat production. The Tc enables automatic temperature control throughout a tumor as a result of the self-regulating nature of(More)
Eviprostat has been used as a non-hormonal and non-neuropharmacological treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in Japan. We evaluated the clinical efficacy of Eviprostat in patients with symptomatic BPH and the anti-inflammatory effect of this drug was investigated by retrospective evaluation of TUR specimens. Clinically, Eviprostat subjectively(More)
