Clinical and immunogenetic characteristics of fulminant type 1 diabetes associated with pregnancy.
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to characterize the clinical and immunogenetic features of Japanese pregnancy-associated fulminant type 1 diabetes (PF). A group of patients with PF wasExpand
Sensorineural hearing loss associated with hypoparathyroidism
The hearing loss of 21 patients with hypoparathyroidism was investigated by pure tone audiometry, short increment sensitivity index (SISI) test, Békésy audiometry, speech audiometry, and auditoryExpand
Prognosis of sudden deafness with special reference to risk factors of microvascular pathology.
OBJECTIVE We attempted to elucidate the contribution of microvascular disorders as risk factors to the prognostic outcome in well-defined patients with sudden deafness. METHODS One-hundred andExpand
Interleukin-4 gene polymorphisms in Japanese and Caucasian patients with aggressive periodontitis.
OBJECTIVES Recently, interleukin (IL) 4 gene polymorphisms have been analyzed in association with periodontitis. Genetic differences between Caucasian and Japanese patients with periodontitis haveExpand
The effect of vitamin D deficiency on the cochlear potentials and the perilymphatic ionized calcium concentration of rats.
Sensorineural hearing loss has been frequently reported in patients with renal failure but its etiology has not yet been established. Disturbance of Ca metabolism is present in renal failure andExpand
Effects of 10 min tilt and visual directional information on ocular counterrolling.
The effects of 10 min of static tilt on ocular counterrolling (OCR) were investigated. Seven healthy volunteers were tilted 45 degrees around the naso-occipital axis, fixed at that position for 10Expand
The effect of transient anoxia upon the cochlear potentials.
To contribute to the analysis of the electrocochleographical findings in humans, the reversibility of the cochlear potentials (the AP, CM, and SP) after transient anoxia was examined using 24 albinoExpand
Time-related changes in cochlear potentials in guinea pigs with experimentally induced endolymphatic hydrops.
In order to examine the changes in cochlear function occurring in hydropic ears over time, endolymphatic hydrops was provoked by obliterating the endolymphatic sac in 62 albino guinea pigs. CochlearExpand
Saccular and cochlear endolymphatic potentials in experimentally induced endolymphatic hydrops of guinea pigs.
Saccular and cochlear endolymphatic potentials (SEP and CEP) were recorded in 33 normal animals. We confirmed that SEP is not produced in the saccule per se, but is a potential leak from the cochlea.Expand
Evaluation of vitamin D metabolism in patients with bilateral sensorineural hearing loss.
The possible role of vitamin D in hearing impairment was investigated by the measurement of three metabolites of vitamin D in 28 patients with bilateral sensorineural hearing loss (BSNHL).Expand
