Aims/hypothesis. Visceral adipocytes have different functions than those from the subcutaneous fat area. These differences could contribute to the pathological significance of excessive visceral fat accumulation for accompanying insulin resistance and hyperinsulinaemia. This study addresses this hypothesis and describes a unique method to clarify whether(More)
To assess the pathogenetic mechanisms of renal vasculitis, we performed immunohistochemical studies using renal biopsy specimens which were obtained from a patient with microscopic polyangiitis during both the acute and the convalescent phase. Intense infiltration and aggregation of neutrophil elastase positive (NE+) cells were observed especially in the(More)
We have investigated the pharmacology of sodium (R)-2-[4-(2,2-dimethyl-1,3-dioxan-5-yl) methoxy-3,5-dimethylpyridin-2-yl]methylsulfinyl-1H-benzimidazol (E3710), a new proton pump inhibitor (PPI), and its effect on gastric acid secretion. E3710 irreversibly inhibited H(+),K(+)-ATPase activity in pig gastric vesicles with an acidic internal environment with(More)
A 54-year-old man developed renal failure, with renal biopsy findings of diffuse mesangiolysis with severe endocapillary proliferation. Immunohistochemical studies revealed that CD3-CD56-CD57+ large granular lymphocytes were present predominantly within glomerular tufts. Intercellular adhesion molecule-1 was more preferentially expressed in the glomerular(More)
A 49-year-old male was admitted to our hospital because of acute renal failure. He had been treated by a local doctor for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) during the past eight years. We treated him with steroid pulse therapy, because of suspected acute interstitial nephritis. We confirmed this diagnosis by renal biopsy and steroid pulse therapy markedly improved(More)
