SUMMARY Rosai-Dorfman disease (sinus histiocytosis with massive lymphadenopathy) rarely affects the intracranial region without involvement of other sites. We report the case of a 68-year-old woman with isolated Rosai-Dorfman disease of the frontal dura. She presented with a new onset seizure. Initial MR imaging showed subtle mild change in the left frontal… (More)
During pre-implantation mouse development, embryos form blastocysts with establishment of the first two cell lineages: the trophectoderm (TE) which gives rise to the placenta, and the inner cell mass (ICM) which will form the embryo proper. Differentiation of TE is regulated by the transcription factor Caudal-related homeobox 2 (Cdx2), but the mechanisms… (More)
Multiple sclerosis is a chronic demyelinating disease of the central nervous system leading to progressive cognitive and motor dysfunction, which is characterized by neuroinflammation, demyelination, astrogliosis, loss of oligodendrocytes, and axonal pathologies. Cyclic phosphatidic acid (cPA) is a naturally occurring phospholipid mediator with a unique… (More)
We present a new user interface for the virtual sculpting system. In our system, the user operates a chisel with a pressure sensitive pen to carve a workpiece in the virtual space. The user can control the depth of carving and the angle of the virtual chisel to the surface of the workpiece dynamically like the real wood carving.
This study was designed to assess the influence of an antivibration glove on digital vascular responses in healthy subjects exposed to short-term grasping of a vibrating handle. To measure finger blood flow (FBF) and finger skin temperature (FST) once at the end of every min, a blood flowmeter sensor was attached to the dorsum and a thermistor sensor was… (More)
