Human CC ligand 3-like protein 1 (CCL3L1), a member of the CC chemokine family, that induces MCP1 and RANTES, exhibits a variety of proinflammatory activities including chemotaxis, and functional and proliferative activation of leukocytes, lymphocytes and macrophages. Its signal is transmitted through transmembrane receptors, CC chemokine receptors, CCR1,(More)
Recombinant tumor necrosis factor α (rTNFα; optimal dose 1000 U/ml) significantly increased the density of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGF-R) in three of four glioma cell lines in culture as determined by binding analysis of anti-EGF-R monoclonal antibody (mAb) 425. Since enhancement of EGF-R expression by rTNF-α was inhibited when cells were treated(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the present study was to assess a new technique of surgical microscope-based indocyanine green (ICG) videoangiography (VAG) to confirm the patency of the anterior communicating artery (AcomA) after clipping AcomA aneurysms. METHODS Aneurysmal clipping of five cases of unruptured, broad-neck AcomA aneurysm was performed using the Carl(More)
We evaluated the effects of presurgical nasoalveolar molding (NAM) with an orthopedic appliance and compared them with a passive orthopedic method (Hotz plate, HP), focusing on the naris morphology and width of the alveolar and palate cleft gap. The subjects were 28 unilateral complete cleft lip and palate patients treated with primary cheiloplasty at(More)
Oculocutaneous albinism type 4 (OCA4) is an autosomal recessive hypopigmentary disorder caused by mutations in the Membrane-Associated Transporter Protein gene (SLC45A2). The SLC45A2 protein is a 530-amino-acid polypeptide that contains 12 putative transmembrane domains, and appears to be a transporter that mediates melanin synthesis. Eighteen pathological(More)
A 58-year-old female with gastric cancer presented with left chronic subdural hematoma (CSH) without history of head injury. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed left CSH with atypical findings such as abnormal dural enhancement and swelling of the left cerebral hemisphere. One month after gastrectomy, motor aphasia and right hemiparesis developed.(More)

OBJECTIVE We present herein the intraoperative indocyanin green videoangiography (ICGVAG) findings for three cases of cerebellar hemangioblastoma (HB). CASES Cerebellar HB was detected in three patients presenting with symptoms of vertigo and/or headaches and diagnosed on the basis of preoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and cerebral angiographic(More)
