In 9 patients with frontotemporal dementia and parkinsonism linked to chromosome 17 (FTDP-17) with a P301S tau mutation, the predominant phenotype was frontotemporal dementia in 3 and parkinsonism in 6. Comparison of the tau genotype/haplotype carrying the mutation and the initial clinical sign showed association between H1/H1 and parkinsonism and between(More)
A cationic azolato-bridged dinuclear platinum(II) complex, [{cis-Pt(NH3)2}2(μ-OH)(μ-methyl-pyrazolate)]2+ (4M-PzPt), was developed to overcome resistance to cisplatin (CDDP). This study aimed to assess the cytotoxicity of 4M-PzPt against a CDDP-resistant cell line, H4-II-E/CDDP, and compare the intracellular accumulation of CDDP and 4M-PzPt. H4-II-E and(More)
BACKGROUND Changes in the expression of transporters have been reported as factors in resistance to cisplatin (CDDP). This study was designed to clarify whether CDDP-resistant strains isolated from a cell line had the same characteristics, and whether these characteristics could be therapeutic targets. MATERIALS AND METHODS Intracellular platinum levels(More)
A 69-year-old woman complained of diplopia and truncal titubation after upper respiratory infection. She presented with mydriasis and external opthalmoplegia of bilateral eyes, ataxia, hyporeflexia and cervical-brachial muscle weakness. The protein abnormally increased (49 mg/dl) in the cerebrospinal fluid, and the serum anti-GQ1b and anti-GT1a IgG(More)
Renal dysfunction is recognized with increasing frequency among the noninfectious comorbidities associated with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. Urinary liver-type fatty acid-binding protein (L-FABP) has been shown to be a new biomarker to screen for not only tubulointerstitial damage but also kidney dysfunction. We performed a cross-sectional(More)
