Fundic gland area gastric polyps in familial polyposis coli (FPC) were compared with those in non-familial polyposis coli clinicopathologically to elucidate their histogenetic and biological characteristics. Some differences were observed in age, sex, and radiological and endoscopical features. Although the polyps were similar histologically, they showed an(More)
We investigated the induction of ischaemic tolerance in the hippocampal CA1 neurones to transient forebrain ischaemia following pretreatment with unilateral middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) in gerbils. Histological evaluation was carried out after 5 min bilateral carotid artery occlusion (5BCO) in the gerbils with no MCAO pretreatment, MCAO(More)
Accessory spleen is an anomaly that is observed in about 10% of individuals by the autopsy study, and most accessory spleens are located close to the splenic hilum. Although accessory spleen is a frequently encountered entity, intrapancreatic accessory spleen (IPAS) is rarely recognized radiologically and is sometimes mistaken for another type of pancreatic(More)
The case of an infant with congenital mesoblastic nephroma and associated reninism is presented. The patient was a 39-day-old boy who presented with a left abdominal mass and mild hypertension (112/70 mm Hg). Both plasma renin activity (PRA) and plasma total renin concentration (PTRC) were elevated; the PTRC value of 1458 pg/mL of this case was the highest(More)
Plasma total renin is a new, useful marker for nephroblastoma, but the conventional method for determining its level is sophisticated and requires large blood samples. To develop a simpler technique, a monoclonal antibody specific for both inactive and active renin (inactive + active = total) was raised, and a radioimmunoassay (RIA) system was established.(More)
UNLABELLED Blood components were reported to be aggravating factors of ischemic cerebral injury. We previously reported that a partial blood replacement with Fluosol DA reduced ischemic neuronal injury. The purpose of this study is to elucidate whether pyridoxalated hemoglobin polyoxyethylene conjugate solution (PHP) exerts neuro-projective effects against(More)
The determination of plasma total renin is useful not only as a tool to investigate the physiology of hypertension but also as a marker for Wilms' tumor. A radioimmunoassay (RIA) system to determine plasma total renin was newly developed using monoclonal antibodies specific for both inactive and active renin (inactive + active = total); in this study, an(More)
