The sea lamprey (Petromyzon marinus) is an ancient jawless fish phyletically removed from modern (teleost) fishes. It is an excellent organism in the study of olfaction due to its accessible olfactory pathway, which is susceptible to manipulation, and its important location in the evolution of vertebrates. There are many similarities in the olfactory(More)
The invasiveness of glioblastoma is a major cause of poor prognosis and relapse. However, the molecular mechanism controlling glioma cell invasion is poorly understood. Here, we report that receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa-B (NFκB) ligand (RANKL) promotes glioma cell invasion in vivo, but not in vitro. Unlike the invasiveness under in vitro(More)
The main causes of early hearing deficit in circling mice have been reported to be early degeneration of the organ of Corti and deterioration of spiral ganglion neurons. As an exact cochlear pathology is essential to explain our previous results regarding the auditory brainstem circuits of developing circling mice, we reinvestigated the cochlear pathology(More)
Methods Sixteen bullae of 8 gerbils were injected with 200μl (107CFU/ml) of H. influenza and formation of biofilms in the bullae was obtained by 5 days. The bullae were divided into control, laser, photofrin, and PDT groups. The control group received no treatment. For laser group, 120 J/cm2 (100 mw x 20 min) of 632 nm LD laser was irradiated into the(More)
We evaluated functional and morphological changes after trans-tympanic laser application using several different powers of photobiomodulation (PBM). The left (L) ears of 17 rats were irradiated for 30 min daily over 14 days using a power density of 909.1 (group A, 5040 J), 1136.4 (group B, 6300 J), and 1363.6 (group C, 7560 J) mW/cm2. The right (N) ears(More)
Auditory neuropathy is a hearing disorder caused by impaired auditory nerve function. The lack of information about the pathophysiology of this disease limits early diagnosis and further treatment. Laser therapy is a novel approach to enhance nerve growth or induce axonal regeneration. We induced auditory neural degeneration sparing the sensory epithelium(More)
Noise-induced hearing loss is a common type of hearing loss. The effects of laser therapy have been investigated from various perspectives, including in wound healing, inflammation reduction, and nerve regeneration, as well as in hearing research. A promising feature of the laser is its capability to penetrate soft tissue; depending on the wavelength, laser(More)
