To examine the effects of a mitogen-activated protein kinase/extracellular signal-regulated kinase kinase 1/2-inhibitor, JTP-74057, on inflammatory arthritis development, and compare its anti-arthritic effect with leflunomide. Human, mouse, and rat peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) were used. Lewis rats and DBA/1J mice were used for animal models.(More)
The authors investigated the impairment of spatial cognitive performance in rats with chronic focal cerebral ischemia using the Morris maze, and examined the correlation between this deficit and other behavioral changes, such as step-through latency in passive avoidance task and neurologic score, or pathologic changes. The authors focused on the(More)
It is well known that hemiplegia is frequently observed in cerebral ischemia. It is important for the pathophysiologic study and development of drug therapies to establish a precise method investigating impairment of motor function with animal models. To develop a quantitative and objective method for evaluating impairment of motor function, we examined an(More)
Adherence to antipsychotic treatment is particularly important in the long-term management of schizophrenia and other related psychotic disorders since poor adherence to medication is associated with poor health outcomes. Although the patients' subjective satisfaction with the medication is crucial for adherence to medication, few studies have examined the(More)
To investigate the chronic effects of a novel thyrotropin-releasing hormone analog, JTP-2942 (N(alpha)-[(1S, 2R)-2-methyl-4-oxocyclopentylcarbonyl]-L-histidyl-L-prolinamide monohydrate), on behavioral changes after stroke, the authors examined its effects on motor and neurologic deficits using a middle cerebral artery (MCA) occlusion model in rats. A left(More)
A small molecule compound, JTP-74057/GSK1120212/trametinib, had been discovered as a very potent antiproliferative agent able to induce the accumulation of CDK inhibitor p15INK4b. To conduct its drug development rationally as an anticancer agent, molecular targets of this compound were identified as MEK1/2 using compound-affinity chromatography. It was(More)
BACKGROUND Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) is a thromboembolic complication that can occur with unfractionated heparin (UFH) or low molecular weight heparin (LMWH). Our objective was to determine and compare the incidence of IgG-class HIT antibodies in patients undergoing total hip arthroplasty (THA) or total knee arthroplasty (TKA) with different(More)
BACKGROUND Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disease that leads to joint destruction, disability, and decreased quality of life (QOL). Inhibition of Janus kinase (JAK) signaling ameliorates articular inflammation and joint destruction in animal models of RA, but its effects on behaviors indicating well-being are poorly understood. In this(More)
We conducted a randomized clinical trial to compare the effectiveness of the A-V Impulse System foot pump for reducing the incidence of deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) in patients under edoxaban thromboprophylaxis. Patients undergoing primary TKA at our institution between September 2013 and March 2015 were enrolled after(More)
