4-Hydroxynonenal (HNE), an aldehydic product of membrane lipid peroxidation, has been shown to induce neurotoxicity in various types of neurons. To clarify the mechanisms underlying HNE-induced neurotoxicity, the effects of antioxidants (N-acetylcysteine (NAC) and ebselen with or without NAC pretreatment) and Ca(2+)-related reagents were examined in(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS The presence of resistance-associated variants (RAVs) of hepatitis C virus (HCV) attenuates the efficacy of direct acting antivirals (DAAs). The objective of this study was to characterize the susceptibility of RAVs to interferon-based therapy. METHODS Direct and deep sequencing were performed to detect Y93H RAV in the NS5A region.(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS The fibrosis stage, which is evaluated by the distribution pattern of collagen fibers, is a major predictor for the development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) for patients with hepatitis C. Meanwhile, the role of elastin fibers has not yet been elucidated. The present study was conducted to determine the significance of quantifying both(More)

α-L-Aspartyl-D-phenylalanine methyl ester (L, D-APM) and α-D-aspartyl-L-phenylalanine methyl ester (D, L-APM) are diastereomers of aspartame (N-L-α-Aspartyl-L-phenylalanine-1-methyl ester, L, L-APM). The Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives has set 0.04 wt% as the maximum permitted level of the sum of L, D-APM and D, L-APM in commercially(More)
AIM For patients receiving endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD), there is urgent need pertaining to the prevention of postoperative bleeding. We conducted a retrospective propensity score-matched study that evaluated whether pre-ESD gastric lavage prevents postoperative bleeding after ESD for gastric neoplasms. METHODS From September 2002 to October(More)
