Eye tracking has been used to investigate gaze behaviours in individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). However, traditional analysis has yet to find behavioural characteristics shared by both children and adults with ASD. To distinguish core ASD gaze behaviours from those that change with development, we examined temporo-spatial gaze patterns in(More)
Neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by surgery (NCS) has not been fully evaluated clinically. Currently, the main regimen of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) used in NCS includes cisplatin. The antitumor effects of NAC reduce lymph node metastasis and the tumor diameter in patients prior to surgery, and this can reduce the number of high risk patients who(More)
Cervical cancer is a female-specific disease with a high incidence and mortality. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are implicated in posttranscriptional regulation of gene expression and in the pathogenic mechanisms of cancer, suggesting their importance in diagnosis and treatment. miRNAs may have roles in the pathogenesis of cervical cancer based on the increases or(More)
OBJECTIVE Children with specific language impairment (SLI) face risks for social difficulties. However, the nature and developmental course of these difficulties remain unclear. Gaze behaviors have been studied by using eye tracking among those with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). Using this method, we compared the gaze behaviors of children with SLI with(More)
INTRODUCTION The mechanism of epilepsy in Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS) has not been elucidated, since it is difficult to detect epileptic discharges on scalp EEG records. To determine the electrophysiological characteristics of SWS, we evaluated epileptic discharges using intracranial electrocorticography (ECoG). CASE SUMMARY We report a 1-year and(More)
Monoclonal antibody YHD-06 generated by immunization with GM2 reacted with gangliosides with GM2-determinant, i.e., GM2, GalNAc-GM1b and GalNAc-GD1a, among which GalNAc-GD1a was characterized as an antigen of autoimmune peripheral neuropathies including Guillain-Barré syndrome. When glycolipids were examined by TLC-immunostaining with YHD-06 in seven human(More)
Among negatively charged lipids, sulfoglycolipids are known to be expressed by specific cell populations and to be involved in their functions, including in adhesion with functional proteins, modification of ion channels and induction of cellular differentiation. Accordingly, we determined their amounts in several histologically defined types of ovarian(More)
Human symbiotic bacteria, Lactobacillus reuteri (LR) in the intestines, Staphylococcus epidermidis (SE) in skin and Streptococcus salivalis (SS) in the oral cavity, contain dihexaosyl diglycerides (DH-DG) in concentrations equivalent to those of phosphatidyl glycerol (PG) and cardiolipin (CL), together with mono- to tetrahexaosyl DGs. The molecular species,(More)
