To drive the daily ACTH secretory rhythm from anterior pituitary corticotropes signals from the circadian clock schedule CRH and, to lesser extent, arginine vasopressin (AVP) release from neuroendocrine terminals. In turn, releasable pools of CRH and AVP in neuroendocrine terminals are sustained by synthetic mechanisms in the medial parvicellular(More)
The protein-A plaque assay was used for serial monitoring of spontaneous plaque-forming lymphocytes (PFC) in blood or thoracic duct lymph of 30 renal transplant patients. In patients experiencing early or delayed graft rejection, PFC manifested a 10-fold increase over the preoperative or control level within one month of the transplantation. Patients(More)
Folliculosebaceous cystic hamartoma (FSCH) is a rare cutaneous hamartoma composed of dilated folliculosebaceous units associated with mesenchymal elements. Two cases of FSCH with typical histopathological features are reported. Patient 1 was a 60-year-old man presented with a normal skin-coloured asymptomatic nodule on his scalp. Patient 2 was a 70-year-old(More)
We report a case of epidermolysis bullosa acquisita (EBA) associated with psoriasis vulgaris. A 71-year-old woman with psoriasis vulgaris developed subepidermal blisters on the extremities. Direct immunofluorescence demonstrated linear deposit of IgG at the basement membrane zone, which bound to the dermal side of normal human skin split with 1 mol/L NaCl.(More)
Cytogenetic analysis was performed on a specimen from a pulmonary metastasis of clear cell sarcoma originated on the right ankle of a 53-year-old Japanese woman. It revealed near-triploid with several numerical changes including abnormalities in the copy number of chromosomes 7, 8, and 22, and structural abnormalities of chromosome 22 and others. This is a(More)
AMPA receptors (AMPARs) have been demonstrated to be an important therapeutic CNS target. A series of substituted benzotriazinone and benzopyrimidinone derivatives were prepared with the aim to improve in vivo activity over the previously reported bis-benzoxazinone based AMPAKINE series from our laboratory. These compounds were shown to be potent, positive(More)
