We investigated the bucillamine (Buc) mechanism inhibiting interleukin (IL)-1beta-induced vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) production from human fibroblast-like synoviocytes (HFLS) which derived from the inflamed synovium of an RA patient using SA981, its active metabolite. HFLS did not produce IL-1beta, spontaneously. While SA981 partially(More)
We investigated the role of leukotriene (LT) B(4) in 5-lipoxygenase metabolite- and allergy-induced itch-associated responses using SA6541, an LTA(4) hydrolase inhibitor. Itch-associated responses were induced by intradermal injection of 5-hydroperoxyeicosatetraenoic acid (HPETE), a precursor of 5-lipoxygenase metabolites, and passive cutaneous anaphylaxis(More)
Natural language communications using social networking and blogging services can result in the undesired revelation of private information. Existing disclosure control is tedious and error-prone because the user must set the disclosure level manually and must reconsider the level every time a new text is to be uploaded.

SA14867 ((+)-3-Acetyl-6-chloro-2-[2-(3-(N-(2-ethoxyethyl)-N-isopropylamino)propoxy)-5-methoxyphenyl]benzothiazoline O,O'-diacetyl-L-tartrate), a selective kappa-opioid receptor agonist, was synthesized and its antinociceptive and antipruritic effects were investigated. In a functional binding assay, SA14867 showed approximately more than 31,000 and 2200(More)
