It is well known that head-twitch response (HTR) in mice represents hallucinations, since administration of lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) produces hallucinations in humans, and the HTR in mice is induced by administration of LSD as a hallucinogen. The HTR is produced by excitation of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT)2A receptors. In this paper, we review the(More)
Semicarbazide-sensitive amine oxidase (SSAO, EC 1.4.3.6) is a group of enzymes highly sensitive to inhibition by semicarbazide. This high sensitivity distinguishes these enzymes from monoamine oxidase (MAO). Various mammalian tissues contain membrane-bound SSAO which metabolizes only the primary monoamines. Vascular and non-vascular smooth muscle cells have(More)

BACKGROUND In clinical studies, it has been difficult to evaluate the influence of haemodialysis (HD) parameters on HD clearance (CL(HD)) and reduction rate (RR) of non-ionic contrast medium during HD sessions. We therefore predicted clinical values of CL(HD) and RR of iopromide, a non-ionic contrast medium, from findings obtained from in vitro experiments,(More)
This study investigated gene expression of drug resistance factors in biopsy tissue samples from hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients undergoing chemotherapy by platinum complex. Liver biopsy was performed to collect tissue from the tumor site (T) and the non-tumor site (NT) prior to the start of treatment. For drug-resistant factors, drug excretion(More)
