The molecular and ultrastructural profiles of the symbionts found in the midgut and ileum of Cephalotes atratus, Cephalotes clypeatus, and Cephalotes pusillus were determined using the V3 region of the bacterial 16S rDNA gene and transmission electron microscopy (T.E.M.). Two samples of C. atratus, three of C. clypeatus, and six of C. pusillus were(More)
The aggregation of lymphoid cells in the bronchial mucosa has been named the bronchus-associated lymphoid tissue (BALT) and investigated in comparison with the gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT). To elucidate precisely the structure and function of the BALT, the present study examined the age-related change in the mouse BALT by light microscopy. We also(More)
The three-dimensional architecture of the rat pulmonary veins was studied by light microscopy (LM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). For LM, the left lungs were fixed with formalin, sectioned and immunostained with an anti-alpha-smooth muscle actin (alpha-SMA) antibody in addition to conventional staining. For SEM, the specimens were fixed with(More)
Cefamandole sodium (CMD), a new cephalosporin-derivative, was synthesized in the Laboratory of Eli-Lilly Co. Ltd. U.S.A. in 1972. CMD, which is several times more active than cefmetazole (CMZ, a cephamycin antibiotic) against Gram-positive cocci, is only as active as the latter antibiotic against Gram-negative bacilli. Against Haemophilus influenzae, CMD(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the effectiveness of including HPV testing as an adjunct to conventional cytology in cervical cancer screening. METHODS Atypical epithelial cells (ATC) were classified according to the 2001 Bethesda classification system. The study ran for 6 years from May 2004 to November 2009 in conjunction with public cervical cancer screening for(More)
To try to determine the site and mode of action of dopamine (DA) on the secretion of gonadotropins in humans, 4 series of studies were performed in 19 healthy volunteers (7 healthy males, 5 females in follicular phase and 7 postmenopausal females). The intravenous infusion of DA at the rate of 4 micrograms/kg/min decreased plasma LH levels to 75.9 +/- 3.7(More)
The efficacy and safety of tobramycin (TOB) administration at 90 mg twice a day (90 mg group) to patients with respiratory tract infections (RTI) were objectively investigated by means of a well-controlled comparative study. The results in this 90 mg group were compared with the case of administering 3 times a day of 60 mg each (60 mg group) as the control.(More)
