Nitric oxide (.NO) modulates the activity of the endocrine system in the behavioral response to stress. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of restraining the body of an animal on expression of neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) in the paraventricular nucleus (PVN) of the hypothalamus, and the inhibitory effect of para-masticatory(More)
—Automatic detection of wipes and their frame ranges is important for the purpose of reliable video parsing and video database indexing. Wipes are difficult to detect because of the complexity and variety of the transition effects. Many of the existing wipe detection algorithms could detect only a few wipe effects. The false/miss detection problem caused by(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The detection of cervical nodal metastases is important for the prognosis and treatment of head and neck tumors. The purpose of this study was to assess the ability of ADC values at 3T to distinguish malignant from benign lymph nodes. MATERIALS AND METHODS From July 2009 to June 2010, twenty-two patients (21 men and 1 woman; mean(More)
BACKGROUND Obstructive uropathy and chronic urinary tract infection increase the risk of urinary tract cancer. Urinary tuberculosis (UTB) can cause chronic urinary tract inflammation, lead to obstructive uropathy, and potentially contribute to the development of urinary tract cancer. However, the association between UTB and urinary tract cancer has not been(More)
Proteinase-activated receptor-1 (PAR(1)) and PAR(2) mediate contraction in the guinea-pig gallbladder. To investigate and compare the effects mediated by PARs in the human gallbladder with those in the guinea-pig gallbladder, we measured contractions of isolated human and guinea-pig gallbladder strips caused by PAR agonists. Results in human were similar to(More)
