During sepsis endothelial dysfunction is an important pathogenetic mechanism in acute kidney injury (AKI). Lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced endotoxemia is associated with renal hemodynamic changes such as alterations of renal blood flow (RBF), vascular resistance, and glomerular filtration rate. We used adenoviral delivery of an engineered variant of native(More)
Epigallocatechin-3-O-gallate (EGCG), the main catechin in green tea, has anti-oxidant, anti-atherosclerotic and anti-inflammatory properties. Fractalkine, a chemokine involved in inflammation and early atherosclerotic processes, acts as a chemoattractant as well as an adhesion molecule in endothelial cells activated by proinflammatory cytokines. In the(More)
| According to the ways to see the real environments, mirror metaphor augmented reality systems can be classified into video see-through virtual mirror displays and reflective half-mirror displays. The two systems have distinctive characteristics and application fields with different types of complexity. In this paper, we introduce a system configuration to(More)
Mast cells regulate both inflammatory responses and tissue repair in human diseases but there are conflicting reports on the role of these cells in the pathogenesis of various kidney diseases. Here we measured mast cell function in unilateral ureteral obstruction, a well-characterized model of renal fibrosis, using Kit(W)/Kit(W-v) mice genetically deficient(More)
Blurred frames may sparsely exist in a video sequence acquired by digital camcorder or digital camera. In order to remove the visually annoying artifact due to those blurred frames, this paper presents a novel motion deblurring algorithm where a blurred frame can be reconstructed utilizing adjacent unblurred frames. Firstly, a motion-compensated predictor(More)
A 16-year old man was referred with intermittent gross haematuria and left flank pain. On physical examination, there was a large mass in the left flank. Enhanced computed tomography demonstrated a 10 cm solid mass on the left retroperitoneal space compressing the renal pelvis and causing hydronephrosis on the left kidney. A few small lymph nodes were noted(More)
