Adiponectin, an adipose tissue-specific plasma protein, has been shown to ameliorate insulin resistance and inhibit the process of atherosclerosis. Recently, several reports have stated that angiotensin type 1 receptor blockers (ARBs), increase adiponectin plasma level, and ameliorate insulin resistance. Telmisartan, a subclass of ARBs, has been shown to be(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Intimal hyperplasia (IH) leading to restenosis is a major complication of arterial revascularization. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of photodynamic therapy (PDT) using mono-L-aspartyl chlorin e6 (NPe6) as a photosensitizer and intraluminal radial irradiation for inhibition of IH experimentally.

Soluble adhesion molecule E-selectin (sE-selectin) is a marker of endothelial activation. To investigate whether high serum concentrations of sE-selectin could predict cardiovascular events, we followed 392 Japanese patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus who had no history of cardiovascular disease for a mean period of 6 years. The cardiovascular end points(More)
A clinical study was performed on concentration of cefotiam (CTM) in the gallbladder bile and the gallbladder tissue in benign diseases of the biliary tract. By an hour intravenous infusion the CTM concentration obtained 2 hours after the start of the infusion revealed that the level of the CTM in A bile was atmost same as that in B bile (3.1--46.0(More)
In this study, we evaluated autoantibodies to IA-2 (IA-2As), glutamic acid decarboxylase 65 (GADAs), and islet cell antibodies (ICAs) in 233 patients with type 1 diabetes (M:F = 90:143, mean duration 4.0 +/- 6.7 yr) as a cross-sectional study. Of 233 patients with type 1 diabetes, IA-2A was detected in 58% of patients with duration within 2 weeks, 61% of(More)
