The majority of the oncogenic osteomalacia-associated mesenchymal tumors are considered to belong to the category of phosphaturic mesenchymal tumors, mixed connective tissue (PMTMCT) variant, of which malignant cases are very rare. Here we report a case of a recurrent malignant PMTMCT variant which arose in the tongue. The patient was treated with surgery(More)
CONCLUSION The results of this study suggest that the administration of vitamin E and vitamin C to patients with idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss (ISSHL) has beneficial effects by reducing the level of reactive oxygen metabolites produced by inner ear ischaemia and reperfusion injury after treatment. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to(More)
Olfactory neurons are unique in the mammalian nervous system because of their capacity to regenerate in adult animals. It has been shown that olfactory receptor cells located in the olfactory epithelium are replaced on a continuous basis and in response to injury throughout the life span of most species. NGF, which is one of the neurotrophic factors, is(More)
NGF is produced in the olfactory bulb and transported from the bulb to cholinergic neurons in the horizontal limb of the diagonal band. Although the expression of NGF receptors has been reported in olfactory epithelial cells, no correlation between NGF and olfactory epithelial cells has been found. This study aimed to define whether or not retrograde(More)
The olfactory bulb is one of the brain regions that synthesizes the nerve growth factor (NGF). Functional roles of the bulbar NGF remain to be determined. The aim of the present study was, using an antibody specific to the high-affinity NGF receptor (trkA), to examine immunohistochemically the distribution of the NGF receptor in the mouse olfactory tract,(More)
The aim of this study was to examine the function of nerve growth factor (BGF) in the olfactory tract of mice. Using the mice which had received unilateral olfactory bulbectomy and in which antibodies to NGF had been continuously infused with into the contralateral olfactory blub, three kinds of analysis were performed: histological analysis of the(More)
