We report 7 cases of traumatic basal ganglia haemorrhage (TBGH), which is closely related to diffuse axonal injury (DAI). Although most of our patients were in coma for more than 24 hours, the outcome was relatively favourable. All the patients regained consciousness, and 2 of 4 patients with contralateral hemiparesis showed improvement. Although expressive(More)
Both tumor necrosis factor a (TNFa) and Fas ligand (FasL) have been implicated in the pathogenesis of graft-versushost disease (GVHD). In this study, we examined the ameliorating effects of neutralizing anti-FasL and/or anti-TNFa monoclonal antibody (MoAb) in a lethal acute GVHD model in mice. Whereas the treatment with either anti-FasL or anti-TNFa MoAb(More)
1. The characteristic features of the endothelium-mediated regulation of the electrical and mechanical activity of the smooth muscle cells of cerebral arteries were studied by measuring membrane potential and isometric force in endothelium-intact and -denuded strips taken from the rabbit middle cerebral artery (MCA). 2. In endothelium-intact strips,(More)
An investigation of pharmacoangiography using a combination of nitroglycerin and angiotensin II demonstrated that it was useful due to the following reasons. First, good dilatation of the proximal portion of the arteries was demonstrated which enabled good clarity of the margin between the encasement and the normal portion of the arteries. Secondly, there(More)
