To support a long-lasting antihypertensive effect of transdermal clonidine (CAS 4205-90-7), changes in plasma norepinephrine (NE) levels and urinary NE excretion as indices of the sympathetic nervous activities were investigated following transdermal and oral clonidine in conscious spontaneously hypertensive rats. Plasma NE levels were significantly reduced(More)
1) Using two histologically different human renal cell carcinomas heterotransplanted into nude mice, the antitumour effect of UFT was investigated, and an attempt was made to analyze the properties of the tumour strains where a drug efficacy was noted. 2) The two strains used were the JRC 1 strain (tumour doubling time of 9.4 days, clear cell type,(More)
The study aimed to further demonstrate the peripheral antitussive properties of moguisteine. Firstly, the antitussive effect of moguisteine on the cough reflex induced by inhalation of citric acid aerosol was evaluated in conscious guinea pigs. Secondly, the effects of both moguisteine and codeine on the centrally mediated cough reflex induced by afferent(More)
Patients with immunoglobulin (Ig) G4-related sclerosing cholangitis typically have a high serum IgG4 level. However, here we describe our experience of a patient with a normal serum IgG4 level for whom the cholangitis was diagnosed by liver biopsy. A 61-year-old male presented with elevated liver enzymes and a normal serum IgG4 level. The hilar,(More)
Portal vein tumor thrombus (PVTT) frequently occurs with the progression of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and is an important factor in determining the prognosis of HCC.
