The age-dependent constituents of esophageal acidic glycosaminoglycans (AGAG) were studied using 35 healthy individuals by electrophoretic characterization and enzymic assay with specific chondroitinases and hyaluronidase. Human esophageal AGAG comprised hyaluronic acid, dermatan sulfate, heparan sulfate and chondroitin 4- and 6-sulfate and oversulfated(More)
The acidic glycosaminoglycans (AGAG) in normal portions of human gastric tissue were separated by electrophoresis in 3 buffer systems. Paper chromatographic separation of the constitutional disaccharide units by digestion of chondroitin sulfates (CS) with chondroitinase-ABC and chondroitinase-AC was carried out after fractionation of CS by ion-exchange(More)
Applicat ion of bar ium enema followed by the evacuat ion fold method and double cont ras t study has been widely employed as a routine method of X-ray examinat ion of the colon. However, f rom the s tandpoint of examinat ion on the funct ional state, the opaque meal method seemed to be superior. Consequently the following studies were carr ied out on the(More)
We have observed 170 cases of acute regional enteritis of ileum at operation in the past 13 years. The resection of diseased segment was performed in 24 cases because of strongly inflammatory changes or symptoms of ileus. In 11 of 24 cases anisakis larvae was found, the wall of the segment was markedly hyperemic, edematous and thickened, and the folds of(More)
In vitro anti-thyroglobulin antibody (TgAb) production by unstimulated, thyroglobulin (Tg)-stimulated and pokeweed mitogen (PWM)-stimulated peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL) from 44 patients with Hashimoto's thyroiditis and 10 normal individuals was investigated using a biotin-avidin enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Spontaneous TgAb production by non-T(More)
Twenty eight cases with jaundice occurred among the children and teachers at an institution for mentally defective children in Ishikawa prefecture from May throngh September 1965. Clinical and histological investigation on these cases as well as on the healthy children, teachers and their families totaling 121 revealed that the disease picture was(More)
