Direct measurement of the release of nitric oxide (NO) from the myenteric plexus has been extremely difficult to date, due to the lack of suitable methodologies. We have developed a new bioimaging system to visualize the nitrergic neurons of the myenteric plexus and investigated whether NO production is impaired in dextran sulfate sodium (DSS)-induced(More)
Further observation was made of 100 cases of occlusion amblyopia (form vision deprivation amblyopia) in order to study the symptomatology and the results of treatment by intensive occlusion of the sound eye. The occlusion was classified into three categories: (1) Short-term total occlusion after entropion or other minor lid surgery, (2) Long-term total(More)
BACKGROUND The role of nitric oxide (NO) in lipopolysaccharide (LPS) tolerance in the liver has been investigated in a number of previous studies, but it is still not clear whether NO is cytotoxic or cytoprotective. The aims of this study were to investigate whether low-dose LPS (LLPS)-induced hepatic production of NO is beneficial and to clarify the(More)
In performing FOLFOX chemotherapy (infusional 5-FU/LV with oxaliplatin) for advanced colorectal cancer, the neurotoxicity of oxaliplatin (L-OHP) is the dose-limiting factor. A retrospective study of 25 consecutive patients, receiving modified FOLFOX6 (mFOLFOX6) for advanced colorectal cancer, was conducted. From March 2006 to February 2008, we investigated(More)
