In order to determine the antianoxic potential of evodiamine, its effects were compared to those of vinpocetine (VPT), using a series of animal models of anoxia. In mice, evodiamine was equivalent to VPT in the KCN-induced anoxia model but was greater than VPT in the low-pressure-induced anoxia model. Its effectiveness was increased by combined treatment(More)
Sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) has been considered to be a painless and efficacious therapeutic treatment of allergic rhinitis which is known as type I allergy of nasal mucosa. Nevertheless, its mechanisms need to be further investigated. In this study, we constructed an effective murine model of sublingual immunotherapy in allergic rhinitis, in which mice(More)
Genetic studies in humans or in vivo studies using animals have shown that kisspeptin released from the hypothalamus controls secretion of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) from GnRH neurons, and subsequently GnRH induces gonadotropin secretion from the anterior pituitary. Kisspeptin did not stimulate GnRH expression in the GnRH-producing cell line(More)
Preferences for different housing conditions in mice were evaluated by radiotelemetry. Male C57BL/6J and ICR mice were used. Preference for bedding materials in mice was compared among three materials, wood shavings (WS), paper (CF) and cloth (AG), using the length of stay in cages as a parameter. The results indicated that mice stayed longer in a cage with(More)
Bedding and nesting materials can improve the health and environmental welfare of laboratory mice. This study was carried out to examine which items are actually preferred by mice. Two series of studies were performed on four types of floor-covering materials (Wood-shavings (Clean-chip), Cloth (Agrebe), Recycled-paper (Paper-clean), Paper (Care-feeaz), and(More)
