Cat brain tumors were produced by stereotactical xenotransplantation of rat glioma clone F98 into the internal capsule of the left hemisphere. Two to four weeks after implantation, the tissue content of water, sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, serum albumin, serum immunoglobulin, and hemoglobin was measured in samples taken from the tumor, from(More)
Experimental brain tumours were produced in adult cats by stereotactic xenotransplantation of the rat glioma clone F98. Regional ATP, glucose and lactate were measured after 2-4 weeks on coronal cryostat sections by substrate-induced bioluminescence, potassium content was imaged by the histochemical sodium cobaltinitrite method, and regional pH by(More)
BACKGROUND Adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) are mesenchymal stem cells that have recently been applied to tissue repair and regeneration. Keratinocytes and dermal fibroblasts play key roles in cutaneous wound healing. OBJECTIVE We investigated the paracrine effects of ASCs on HaCaT cells (i.e., immortalized human keratinocytes) and human dermal(More)
Sympathetic neurolysis is very important in treating chronic pain, especially sympathetically maintained pain. However, conventional neurolytic agents destroy nerve fibers nonselectively and may leave serious complications. Botulinum toxin type A (BTA) selectively acts on cholinergic nerves and inhibits the secretion of acetylcholines (Ach) at the involved(More)
BACKGROUND Botulinum neurotoxin type A (BoNT/A) has been used as an analgesic for myofascial pain syndromes, migraine, and other types of headaches. Although an antinociceptive effect of central or peripheral administration of BoNT/A is suggested, the effect at the spinal level is still unclear. In this study, we evaluated the antinociceptive effect of(More)
The effect of barbiturate treatment on post-ischemic cerebral protein biosynthesis was studied in gerbils subjected to 5 min transient occlusion of carotid arteries followed by 2 h or 48 h recirculation. Ischemia induced a remarkable decline of amino acid incorporation into brain proteins in most forebrain structures. The initial inhibition recovered to(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Prolonged inhibition of protein synthesis precedes delayed neuronal death in the CA1 sector of the hippocampus after transient cerebral ischemia. Organic calcium antagonists have been recommended for alleviation of ischemic neuronal damage. The present study was undertaken to investigate whether these drugs improve the recovery of(More)
To determine whether the potency of botulinum toxin A (BTA) decreases after being reconstituted with normal saline and stored in refrigerator, we injected one side of the extensor digitorum brevis muscle with 2.5 units of botulinum toxin A that had been immediately reconstituted with saline, and the contralateral side with identical material that had been(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the incidence and characteristics of pain following intracavernous injection of prostaglandin E1 (PGE). We injected PGE into the cavernous tissues of 156 patients with erectile dysfunction who had never previously been injected with PGE. The incidence and characteristics of pain after injection were evaluated by the(More)
BACKGROUND Foremost fine hairs in the frontal hairline region are critical in hair transplantation for hairline correction (HTHC) in women. However, there are few studies on a nonsurgical revisionary method for improving an unnatural foremost hairline with thick donor hairs resulting from a previous HTHC. OBJECTIVE To investigate the efficacy and safety(More)
