OBJECT The difference in the hemodynamics of wall shear stress (WSS) and oscillatory shear index (OSI) between ruptured and unruptured aneurysms is not well understood. The authors investigated the hemodynamic similarities and dissimilarities in ruptured and thin-walled unruptured aneurysm blebs. METHODS Magnetic resonance imaging-based fluid dynamics(More)
A new series of 1,4-benzoxazepine derivatives was designed, synthesized, and evaluated for binding to 5-HT1A receptor and cerebral anti-ischemic effect. A lot of compounds exhibited nanomolar affinity for 5-HT1A receptor with good selectivity over both dopamine D2 and alpha1-adrenergic receptors. Among these compounds,(More)
Cancer stem cells (CSCs) have been studied for their self-renewal capacity and pluripotency, as well as their resistance to anticancer therapy and their ability to metastasize to distant organs. CSCs are difficult to study because their population is quite low in tumor specimens. To overcome this problem, we established a culture method to induce a(More)
Although copy number variations (CNVs) are expected to affect various diseases, little is known about the association between CNVs and breast cancer susceptibility. Therefore, we investigated this relation. Array comparative genomic hybridization was performed to search for candidate CNVs related to breast cancer susceptibility. Subsequent quantitative(More)
Despite advancement of diagnostic and treatment modalities, subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is still an entity of neurosurgical emergency with poor outcome. Recent reports indicated that hemodynamic stress might play an important role in rupture or the growth of cerebral aneurysms, but there is no consensus about how or which hemodynamic factor contribute to(More)
Cancer stem-like cells (CSLCs) in solid tumors are thought to be resistant to conventional chemotherapy or molecular targeting therapy and to contribute to cancer recurrence and metastasis. In this study, we aimed to identify a biomarker of pancreatic CSLCs (P-CSLCs). A P-CSLC-enriched population was generated from pancreatic cancer cell lines using our(More)
PURPOSE Anthracycline-based chemotherapies for breast cancer are well known to have adverse effects and can also negatively affect host immune function. There is therefore a necessity for an adjuvant that maintains the quality of life (QOL) and immune function of cancer patients receiving anthracycline-based chemotherapies. PATIENTS AND METHODS The(More)
A series of new piperidinyl- and 1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridinyl-pyrimidine derivatives were synthesized. Among these compounds, 4-methyl-2-(1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridin-4-yl)pyrimidine derivative 23 (SUN N5147) exhibited sub-nanomolar affinity for 5-HT1A receptor with 1000-fold selectivity over both dopamine D2 and alpha1-adrenergic receptors and remarkable(More)
