It is noted that the increased central sympathetic nerve activity caused by neurovascular compression at the rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM) is closely related to the genesis of neurogenic hypertension. The authors present the case of a 49-year-old female with refractory neurogenic hypertension to be uncontrolled even with all kinds of oral(More)
It is said that the microgravity environment positively affects the quality of protein crystal growth. The formation of a protein depletion zone and an impurity depletion zone due to the suppression of convection flow were thought to be the major reasons. In microgravity, the incorporation of molecules into a crystal largely depends on diffusive transport,(More)
Japan's first large lunar explorer was launched by the H-IIA(JST). This explorer named " KAGUYA (SELENE: SELenological and Engineering Explorer) " has been keenly anticipated by many countries as it represents the largest lunar exploration project of the post-Apollo program. The lunar missions that have been conducted so far have gathered a large amount of(More)
The rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM) is known to be a major center regulating sympathetic and cardiovascular activities. A possible association between neurovascular compression of the RVLM and essential hypertension has been indicated. The present study was performed to determine the role of angiotensin II (AngII) in the pressor and sympathetic(More)
