We examined the effect of perinatal hypothyroidism on auditory function in rats using a prepulse inhibition paradigm. Pregnant rats were treated with the antithyroid drug methimazole (1-methyl-2-mercaptoimidazole) from gestational day 15 to postnatal day 21 via drinking water at concentrations (w/v) of 0 (control), 0.002 (low dose), or 0.02% (high dose).(More)
In Japan, long-term oral therapy with tegafur in combination with immunopotentiators is commonly used as adjuvant therapy after curative resection of gastric or colorectal can for gastric and colorectal cancer. When the outcome was analyzed in terms of the relative performance (R.P.) and the individual dose intensity (I.D.I.) of OK-432, gastric cancer(More)
The acute and subacute oral toxicity of 2,6-dimethyl-3,5-dimethoxycarbonyl-4-(o-difluoromethoxyphenyl)-1,4 -dihydropyridine (PP-1466) was investigated in several animal species in comparison with nifedipine and nicardipine. A clear species difference in LD50 values was found in acute toxicity of PP-1466, and rabbits were the most sensitive between animal(More)
A 79-year-old man sustained blunt abdominal trauma in an automobile crash, resulting in intra-abdominal bleeding and acute ischemia of the lower extremities. Angiography demonstrated occlusion of the popliteal arteries bilaterally. He died of multiple organ failure despite immediate surgical intervention. Pathologic examination revealed diffuse(More)
