Both vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and interleukin 8 (IL-8) play an important role in the progression of gastric cancer (GC). In this study, we investigated whether circulating levels of VEGF or IL-8 in drainage veins of GC patients were correlated with any clinicopathological factors. Thirty-seven patients with primary GC who underwent(More)
1. Electrical activity of neurones of the locus coeruleus (LC) was studied in rats anaesthetized with urethane. By stimulating the dorsal pathway (DP) of axons of LC neurones in the mid=brain and observing field responses in the dorsolateral tegmentum of the pons, micro-electrodes were oriented to record unit discharges of LC neurones. They were evoked by(More)
KEY POINTS Cerebral haemodynamic response to neural stimulation has been extensively investigated in animal and clinical studies, in both adult and paediatric populations, but little is known about cerebral haemodynamic functional response in the fetal brain. The present study describes the cerebral haemodynamic response measured by near-infrared(More)
