A 3-D augmented reality navigation system using autostereoscopic images was developed for MRI-guided surgery. The 3-D images are created by employing an animated autostereoscopic image, integral videography (IV), which provides geometrically accurate 3-D spatial images and reproduces motion parallax without using any supplementary eyeglasses or tracking(More)
INTRODUCTION Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the airways, involving oxidative stress. Upon oxidative stress, glutathione covalently binds to protein thiols to protect them against irreversible oxidation. This posttranslational modification, known as protein S-glutathionylation, can be reversed by glutaredoxin 1 (Glrx1) under physiological(More)
This study aimed to investigate bronchiolar catalase expression and its relationship with smoking and/or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in humans and to determine the dynamic change of bronchiolar catalase expression in response to cigarette smoke in mice. Lung tissue was obtained from 36 subjects undergoing surgery for peripheral tumours,(More)
BACKGROUND Airway occlusion pressure 0.1 s after the start of inspiratory flow (P0.1) is used as an index of respiratory motor output; however, the reliability of P0.1 in this capacity has not been sufficiently investigated. Therefore, the aim of our study was to examine the reliability of P0.1. METHODS Eleven healthy subjects (7 men and 4 women)(More)
