The prophylactic effect of glutathione (GSH) on radiation injury in rat parotid glands was investigated. GSH was administered to male Wistar rats i.p. 15 min prior to irradiation. The necrosis index (NI) of the glands was determined histologically 24 h after a single dose of 15, 30, or 60 Gy. Total amylase activity, total protein content and wet weight of(More)
A case of wildlife trichinosis was found in a red fox (Vulpes vulpes japonica) captured at Rokkasho, Aomori Prefecture on November 27, 1998. Trichinella larvae were obtained from almost all of the muscle tissues except for the masseter. The highest number of larvae per gram of tissue was found in the muscles of the gluteal region and throat. The lowest(More)
Thymidine phosphorylase (TP), also known as platelet-derived endothelial cell growth factor, has been implicated in the angiogenesis of bladder cancer. The aim of this study is to investigate the association between TP expression and the clinicopathologic findings, and the prognostic value. TP immunohistochemical staining was performed in specimens from 71(More)
Autopsy cases of two brothers with bulbo-spinal muscular atrophy associated with gynecomastia, testicular atrophy and sensory neuropathy are reported. The disease started with finger tremor, proximal muscle weakness and facial muscle twitching at the second and fourth decades, accompanied by bulbar signs and glove-stocking type sensory disturbance.

Traumatic myositis ossificans in the left masseter muscle of a 25-year-old man is described. The lesion, which extended intramuscularly from the lateral surface of the zygomatic bone to the mandibular angle, was resected by an intraoral approach. The specimen was composed of mature cortical bone in the outer portion and spongy bone, including degenerated(More)
Thromboembolism has been shown to play a role in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). A possibility exists that lipoprotein (a) [Lp(a)], a newly-discovered prothrombotic factor, also participates in the development of at least some cases of IBD. Marked elevation of serum Lp(a) levels was observed in a young patient with ulcerative colitis.(More)
Intra-arterial chemotherapy from bilateral superficial temporal arteries and radiotherapy were carried out preoperatively on two patients with oral cancer on the midline. Total doses of preoperative chemo- and radio-therapies were 160 mg/m2 of carboplatin, 50 mg of peplomycin and 20 Gy of 60Co-irradiation, respectively. Therapeutic effect of preoperative(More)
We report a case of a fast-growing cardiac papillary fibroelastoma (CPF) arising in the aortic valve. A 71-year-old woman was referred to a cardiologist for investigation of palpitations. Cardiac catheterization, coronary angiography, and echocardiography showed no stenosis of the coronary arteries, nor any other cardiovascular abnormalities. However, 12(More)
