The highly ordered process of wound healing involves the coordinated regulation of cell proliferation and migration and tissue remodeling, predominantly by polypeptide growth factors. Consequently, the slowing of wound healing that occurs in the aged may be related to changes in the activity of these various regulatory factors. To gain additional insight(More)
Malignant meningioma is a rare brain tumor with a high risk of recurrence. If this tumor recurs after complete resection and adjuvant radiotherapy, there is no optimal treatment to control it. The authors report the first case of recurrent malignant meningioma treated using boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT). This 25-year-old pregnant woman presented with(More)
BACKGROUND Fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family members are involved in the regulation of a variety of biological phenomena. Because most of their activity is exerted via a signaling complex composed of FGF, heparin/heparan sulfate and FGF receptor tyrosine kinase, it is important to study the dynamic behavior of all the molecules in the complex without(More)
Lymphocytic hypophysitis is an autoimmune disorder of the pituitary gland. We report a case of lymphocytic hypophysitis managed by high dose methylprednisolone pulse therapy and review the literature. A 61-year-old woman presented with severe headache. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed a contrast enhancing pituitary mass. The patient underwent(More)
Fundamental oscillations up to 1.08 THz with the output power of 5.5 microwatts was achieved in GalnAs/AlAs resonant tunneling diodes (RTDs) at room temperature. The graded emitter, thin barriers, and high-indium-composition transit layers were introduced to reduce the tunneling and transit delays. The first two of these structures are the same as those in(More)
