Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) elicits an inflammatory response in the subarachnoid space, which is mediated by the release of various cytokines. To assess their involvement in post-hemorrhagic complications, we determined the source and time-course of the release of inflammatory cytokines and acute-phase proteins in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) following SAH.(More)
By employing polyclonal antibodies for retinol-binding protein (RBP), its distribution in the human pancreas and digestive tract mucosa was compared with those of transthyretin (TTR) and various peptide hormones. The materials used included surgically removed pancreas, esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines. Paraffin sections were stained by the(More)
be the exterior algebra of dx1, . . . , dxn over Fq . Let Pn ⊗ En be the polynomial tensor exterior algebra in n variables x1, . . . , xn over the finite field Fq . The general linear group GLn(Fq) and the special linear group SLn(Fq) act on both the polynomial algebra Pn and the polynomial tensor exterior algebra Pn ⊗ En . In [4], the ring of invariants of(More)
One of the most powerful tools in the study of the mod p cohomology of classifying spaces of connected compact Lie groups is the Rothenberg–Steenrod spectral sequence. For a connected compact Lie group G, there is a strongly convergent first quadrant spectral sequence of graded Fp –algebras {Ep,q r , dr : Ep,q r → Ep+r,q−r+1 r } such that E 2 = Cotor p,q(More)
To detect anti-granulocyte antibodies (AGAs) in the sera of granulocytopenic patients is important to study the mechanism of the disease. In this report, we studied neutrophil associated immunoglobulin (NAIg) and neutrophil binding immunoglobulin (NBIg) in patients' sera using flow cytometry (FCM). We investigated the interference of circulating immune(More)
A 48-year-old non-goitrous woman, who had undergone cardiac surgery for mitral stenosis under the extracorporeal circulation, showed high levels of serum T3 and free T3 in a recent follow-up study, employing antibody coated-bead RIA for T3 and -Amerlex M particle RIA for free T3. However, other thyroid function tests (T4, free T4, TSH and TBG) were normal.(More)
