Twenty-four patients with acute low-tone sensorineural hearing loss (ALHL) were examined using electrocochleography. The negative summating potential (SP) amplitude and the summating potential/action potential (AP) ratio were significantly greater in the ALHL patients than in normals. The SP/AP ratio was smaller in the ALHL patients than in patients with(More)
ABCB1, also known as MDR1/P-glycoprotein, can transport cortisol and aldosterone. We examined the effects of ABCB1 polymorphisms on serum levels of cortisol and aldosterone among different phases of the normal menstrual cycle in 51 non-pregnant healthy Japanese female volunteers (22 +/- 1 years old). The menstrual cycle was divided into three phases:(More)
Two siblings with Cockayne's syndrome (CS) are described. Both showed cachectic dwarfism, photosensitivity and progressive neurological dysfunction. The damped-rotation test revealed no vestibular nystagmus in one of them, and reduced per-rotatory nystagmus in the other. Neuropathological examination in the former subject disclosed neuronal loss with(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Elevated mean pulmonary artery pressure (mPAP) is a significant prognostic indicator in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). It has been reported that the computed tomography-determined ratio of the diameter of the pulmonary artery to the aorta (PA:A) is correlated with mPAP in various respiratory diseases. However, in patients with(More)
Anagrelide, a phospholipase A2 inhibitor, is widely used in the management of essential thrombocythemia. To date, anagrelide has only rarely been reported to be associated with the development of drug-induced interstitial pneumonitis. We herein report two cases of anagrelide-associated interstitial pneumonitis. The patients were a 67-year-old woman and a(More)
