OBJECTIVE To determine whether subclinical hypothyroidism (SCH) alters the phenotype, insulin resistance, or lipid parameters in young women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). DESIGN Prospective case-control study. SETTING Tertiary care setting. PATIENT(S) Sixty-two young women with PCOS and SCH (group I) and 291 euthyroid women with PCOS (group(More)
CONTEXT To improve the treatment outcomes in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), various drugs like glitazones, oral contraceptive pills, or antiandrogens have been combined with metformin. OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to compare the efficacy of the combination of low-dose spironolactone and metformin with either drug alone in the(More)
Motor and sensory responses induced by trial stimulation were examined before stereotaxically implanting a permanent stimulating electrode for pain relief in 11 patients with intractable pain of central origin. The total number of points eliciting a response when stimulated was 70. The points of stimulation were determined as exactly as possible from(More)
A 47-year-old female presented with an unusual cystic meningioma. Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging showed a cystic tumor with marked edema in the left parietal region of the brain, resembling a metastatic tumor. The tumor was totally removed. Histological examination revealed meningioma with dense lymphoplasmacytic infiltrates.
The proximal left M1 and the common trunk of A2 were clipped in 12 adult dogs. Naloxone was injected after placing the clips onto 6 dogs. Neither the systemic blood pressure nor the local cerebral blood flow were influenced by naloxone. In another group of 6 dogs with chronic right hemiplegia, naloxone proved passably effective in improving the hemiplegia.(More)
A 48-year-old male with type A atrophic gastritis developed multiple gastric carcinoids and a pituitary adenoma. Laboratory tests revealed high levels of serum gastrin and growth hormone (GH). He underwent subtotal gastrectomy, resulting in a return of the previously elevated gastrin level to normal. Serum GH concentration remained high. Three months after(More)
A 34-year-old male developed consciousness disturbance; semicoma, on December 15, 1984, and diagnosed as a thalamic hemorrhage perforating into the ventricular system after a computed tomographical (CT) examination. Angiography revealed an arteriovenous malformation (AVM) in the right posterior thalamic region, which was fed by a posteromedial choroidal(More)

To investigate a clinical application of Lentinan, an immunomodulator and polysaccharide extracted from Lentinus edodes, an effect of Lentinan on the adrenalectomized rats was examined. The multiple injection of Lentinan did not result in any changes in the growth curves, survival rate nor histamine sensitivity, compared with those of the controls,(More)
The cumulative effects of Lentinan and endocrine therapy on the growth of DMBA (7, 12-dimethyl benzanthracene)-induced mammary tumors of rats were studied. Multiple injection of Lentinan alone resulted in a slight degree of regression of the tumor growth, when administered to rats bearing mammary tumors of about 1 cm in size. Ovariectomy-adrenalectomy,(More)
