We assessed hemokinetics associated with changes in Alzheimer's disease (AD) severity in 90 AD patients by researching the relationship between AD Assessment Scale, cognitive sub-scale (ADAS(cog)) scores and regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF). In the present study, we employed the questionnaire-type ADAS(cog) examination to accurately assess the severity… (More)
A case of chondroma which occurred in the midline of the dorsum of the tongue in a 40-year-old Japanese male is reported together with a review of the literature. Histological investigation revealed that this lingual chondroma had the characteristics of hyaline cartilage. We regard the metaplastic transformation theory as the best explanation of… (More)
Corticobasal degeneration(CBD) is a neurodegenerative disorder characterised clinically by apraxia, cortical sensory loss, alien limb, dementia, oculomotor abnormalities, dysarthria, postural instability, akinesia, rigidity, and pyramidal signs. Brain imaging may demonstrate greater abnormalities contralateral to the more affected side. We reported a case… (More)

Gfi1 plays an important role in the development and maintenance of many hematopoietic linage cells. However, the impact of Gfi1-deficiency on the iNKT cell differentiation remains unclear. We herein demonstrate a critical role of Gfi1 in regulating the development of iNKT cell subsets. In the thymus of T cell-specific Gfi1-deficient mice, iNKT cells… (More)
[125I]Mesotocin (MT) binding of membrane fractions of the cortical tissue and the medullary tissue (medullary cone) of the kidney of nonlaying hens was measured by the use of radioligand binding assays to determine the distribution of two distinct MT receptors within the hen kidney. The binding to [125I]MT in the medullary tissue was found to be highly… (More)
Carpal tunnel syndrome is well known to be associated with hypothyroidism, but other mononeuropathies have been rarely reported. We report a 65-year-old male who showed right deep peroneal nerve palsy caused by hypothyroidism. The patient was admitted to our hospital because of general fatigue and right drop foot. On admission, bilateral pretibial pitting… (More)
