Moyamoya disease: current concepts and future perspectives
Moyamoya disease is an uncommon cerebrovascular disease that is characterised by progressive stenosis of the terminal portion of the internal carotid artery and its main branches. The disease isExpand

Stereotactic irradiation for intracranial arteriovenous malformation using stereotactic radiosurgery or hypofractionated stereotactic radiotherapy.
PURPOSE To investigate the appropriateness of the treatment policy of stereotactic irradiation using both hypofractionated stereotactic radiotherapy (HSRT) and stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) forExpand

Migration and differentiation of nuclear fluorescence‐labeled bone marrow stromal cells after transplantation into cerebral infarct and spinal cord injury in mice
There is increasing evidence that bone marrow stromal cells (BMSC) have the potential to migrate into the injured neural tissue and to differentiate into the CNS cells, indicating the possibility ofExpand

Co-expression of an ethylene receptor gene, ERS1, and ethylene signaling regulator gene, CTR1, in Delphinium during abscission of florets.
We are trying to determine the mechanisms responsible for ethylene-induced floret abscission in cut flowers of Delphinium and recently identified an ethylene receptor gene, ERS1, and studied itsExpand

Incidence and Clinical Features of Disease Progression in Adult Moyamoya Disease
Background and Purpose— The progression of occlusive lesions in the major intracranial arteries was believed to be very rare in adult patients with moyamoya disease. The present study aims to clarifyExpand

Radiological Findings, Clinical Course, and Outcome in Asymptomatic Moyamoya Disease: Results of Multicenter Survey in Japan
Background and Purpose— Although the development of a noninvasive MR examination has increased the opportunity to identify asymptomatic patients with moyamoya disease who have experienced no strokeExpand

Bone marrow stromal cells protect and repair damaged neurons through multiple mechanisms
A surprising shortage of information surrounds the mechanism by which bone marrow stromal cells (BMSC) restore lost neurologic functions when transplanted into the damaged central nervous system. ToExpand

Impact of oxygen extraction fraction on long-term prognosis in patients with reduced blood flow and vasoreactivity because of occlusive carotid artery disease.
BACKGROUND Reduced cerebral blood flow and cerebrovascular reactivity to acetazolamide (type 3 ischemia) is believed as an independent predictor for subsequent ischemic stroke in patients withExpand

Ethylene production and enhanced transcription of an ethylene receptor gene, ERS1, in Delphinium during abscission of florets
Abstract Delphinium spp. L florets are known to undergo severe senescence a few days after harvesting as cut flowers. Using a cDNA library made from mRNA extracted from Delphinium florets 4 dExpand
