Since 1986, the authors have been conducting conservative treatment for idiopathic scoliosis with the combination of brace treatment and physical treatment (side shift exercise and hitch exercise). A total of 328 female patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis who were at least 10 years of age at the first visit, with Cobb angle of 10 degrees at the(More)
The pregnane X receptor (PXR) is understood to be the key regulator for gene expression of such drug-metabolizing enzymes and transporters as multidrug-resistant protein 1 (MDR1) and the cytochrome P450 (CYP) family. We examined the effect of dietary phytochemicals on the PXR-dependent transcriptional activity in human intestinal LS180 cells by using a(More)
Neuronal plasticity in the pain-processing pathway is thought to be a mechanism underlying pain hypersensitivity and negative emotions occurring during a pain state. Recent evidence suggests that the activation of astrocytes in the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) contributes to the development of negative emotions during pain hypersensitivity after(More)
In permanent teeth described as having incompleted roots, dentin is still in the process of deposition on internal dentin walls and the root is in the process of completion. The purpose of this study of dog's immature permanent teeth was to investigate pulp healing and continuous root and internal dentin-wall developments after direct pulp capping with two(More)
In order to investigate the usefulness of an electromagnetic three-dimensional measuring device as a monitor for the side shift exercise, the evaluation by the well-trained physical therapist as to whether the exercise was properly performed or not was compared with the evaluation using data obtained by the device. The side shift exercises performed by(More)
