BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Substance P (SP), a representative member of the tachykinin family, is involved in nociception under physiological and pathological conditions. Recently, hemokinin-1 (HK-1) was identified as a new member of this family. Although HK-1 acts on NK(1) tachykinin receptors that are thought to be innate for SP, the roles of HK-1 in(More)
The purpose of the study was to determine whether lidocaine could be transported through living rat skin using alternating current and to determine whether lidocaine transport depends on voltage. The drug delivery cell was originally constructed for the application of an electric field. Hairless rats were anaesthetised using sevoflurane, and a tracheotomy(More)
Morphological features of the hind limb muscles reflect the muscular function correlating with the locomotion. In this study, the muscles of the baboon hind limb were weighed and the relative muscle weights were compared with those of the human lower extremity. In the baboon, the biceps femoris was the largest (11.60%) and the vastus lateralis (10.67%) was(More)
We compared morphological and morphometric data on various motor neurons in the human pyramidal system using the modified Klüver-Barrera staining method with extremely minimized shrinkage ratio and an image-analyzer. We classified motor neurons in the human pyramidal system into three groups according to the measurement data. This report may be of interest(More)
We describe a case series of suspected metallic embolism after coil embolization for intracranial aneurysms. Between January 2012 and December 2014, 110 intracranial aneurysms had been treated by coil embolization in our institution. In 6 cases, the postprocedural MR imaging revealed abnormal spotty lesions not detected on the preprocedural MR imaging. The(More)
