Using differential screening we have cloned a cDNA encoding a novel oxidative stress protein designated A170 from murine peritoneal macrophages. It has a Zn-finger domain, a PEST domain and several potential phosphorylation sites for kinases. Treatments with oxidative stress agents such as diethyl maleate and paraquat increased a 2.0-kilobase A170 mRNA(More)
The transradial approach has currently been accepted as an alternative entry method for coronary angiography and angioplasty. Vascular complications of this method were evaluated by 2-dimensional echo and color Doppler ultrasonic studies in 162 patients before, early (2+/-2 [mean+/-SD] days), and late (95+/-29 days) after catheterization. Mean age was(More)
We previously reported cDNA cloning of a novel oxidative stress protein termed A170 from murine macrophages. Further experiments have demonstrated that exposure of the cells to low levels of H2O2 produced by glucose/glucose oxidase markedly induced the 60-kDa A170 protein. This result suggests that the level of A170 protein can also be controlled at(More)
BACKGROUND Direct revascularization through a superficial temporal artery-middle cerebral artery (STA-MCA) bypass is often performed to prevent ischemic or hemorrhagic attack in patients with moyamoya disease. This is the first reported case of aneurysm formation and rupture due to an STA-MCA bypass in a patient with moyamoya disease. CASE DESCRIPTION A(More)
We describe a case of intracranial hypotension syndrome due to overdrainage of cerebrospinal fluid presented with hearing loss after ventriculoperitoneal shunting procedure. A 69-year-old man suffering from subarachnoid hemorrhage presented with an angiogram showing two aneurysms, one of the right internal carotid and one of the middle cerebral artery. Neck(More)
The objectives of this study were to elucidate the normal anatomy of middle cerebral artery (MCA) bifurcations and to analyze the differences in patients with MCA aneurysms. In the present study, 62 patients underwent three-dimensional magnetic resonance angiography, and no intracranial lesions were noted. The widths of M1 and the superior and inferior M2(More)
Mast cells (MCs) and eosinophils are thought to play important roles in evoking allergic inflammation. Cell-type--specific gene expression was screened among 12,000 genes in human MCs and eosinophils with the use of high-density oligonucleotide probe arrays. In comparison with other leukocytes, MCs expressed 140 cell-type--specific transcripts, whereas(More)
A patient with subarachnoid hemorrhage was found to have electrocardiographic abnormalities resembling an acute myocardial infarction as well as left ventriculographic findings of cardiac dysfunction. These cardiac abnormalities resolved following surgical clipping of the aneurysm and the patient recovered well from the operation. She died 2 months later(More)
The risk of anticoagulant-associated intracranial hemorrhage(ICH)is relatively low in patients treated with non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants(NOAC). The anticoagulant-associated ICH comprises mainly intraparenchimal hemorrhage. Subdural hematoma and subarachnoid hemorrhage(SAH)are rare complications after treatment with NOAC, trauma being the(More)
Intracranial aneurysms usually occur at arterial bifurcations. However, in middle cerebral artery (MCA) aneurysms, we often find that the aneurysmal neck does not necessarily exist just on the arterial bifurcation. In this study, we have evaluated the relation among aneurysmal neck, parent artery, and daughter arteries in middle cerebral artery aneurysms,(More)
