BACKGROUND The changes in the functional magnetic resonance imaging signal during anticipation, pain stimulation, and the poststimulation periods were investigated to determine whether changes in sex hormones affect brain activity. METHODS Eighteen participants were examined twice, once in the follicular phase and once in the luteal phase. Half the(More)
BACKGROUND Iron overload is a predictable and life-threatening complication in patients dependent on the regular transfusion of RBCs. The aims of this study were to investigate the efficacy and safety of deferiprone in a variety of pediatric hematologic and/or oncologic patients with a high iron overload. METHODS SEVENTEEN PATIENTS (AGE: 1.1-20.4 years;(More)
To establish changes in phototransduction in diabetes, the effects of high glucose on rhodopsin kinase (RK) and transducin (G(t)), as well as recoverin, were examined in the retina of STZ-induced diabetic rats. Diabetes was induced by single intraperitoneal injection of STZ (50mg/kg) to Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats and the animals were sacrificed after 6 weeks.(More)
In this study we investigated the mRNA expression of NELL2, a neural tissue-specific epidermal growth factor (EGF)-like repeat domain-containing protein, in the developing and adult rat CNS using in situ hybridization histochemistry and northern blot analysis. The possible candidates that interact with or be regulated by NELL2 were screened with a cDNA(More)
OBJECTIVE Sudden major cerebral artery occlusion often resists recanalization with currently available techniques or can results in massive symptomatic intracranial hemorrhage (sICH) after thrombolytic therapy. The purpose of this study was to examine mechanical recanalization with a retrievable self-expanding stent and balloon in acute intracranial artery(More)
Brain Respiration (BR)-training is a unique form of breathing exercise that develops potential ability by facilitating brain function. It is recognized as an effective method of improving the scholastic aptitude and emotional stability of children. The present study was designed to investigate the characteristics of the EEG during this training. Spectral(More)
Rupture of spontaneous dissecting aneurysms of the middle cerebral artery (MCA) is rare and its etiology remains obscure, although the risk of rebleeding is greater than with saccular aneurysms. Most reports concerning the treatment of a ruptured dissecting aneurysm of the anterior circulation involve surgical trapping or wrapping. Here, we report on a case(More)
