OBJECTIVE This study investigated the effects of resveratrol, a natural polyphenol with neuroprotective properties, on retinal neuronal cell death mediated by diabetes-induced activation of Ca(2+)/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaMKII). RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Diabetes was induced in C57BL/6 mice by five consecutive intraperitoneal injections(More)
OBJECTIVE Protein kinase C (PKC)-delta, an upstream regulator of the Akt survival pathway, contributes to cellular dysfunction in the pathogenesis of diabetes. Herein, we examined the role of PKC-delta in neuronal apoptosis through Akt in the retinas of diabetic rats. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS We used retinas from 24- and 35-week-old male Otsuka(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the functional outcomes of the over-tensioning technique compared with those of the standard tensioning technique in the transfer of extensor indicis proprius (EIP) to extensor pollicis longus (EPL) for the chronic rupture of the thumb extensor. METHODS Data were collected from patients who underwent(More)
In our previous study, we demonstrated that immobilization stress blocked estrogen-induced luteinizing hormone (LH) surge possibly by inhibiting the synthesis and release of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) at the hypothalamic level and by blocking estrogen-induced prolactin (PRL) surge by increasing the synthesis of dopamine receptor at the pituitary(More)
