This study aimed to evaluate the relationship between the diameters of the auditory and eighth cranial nerves and improvements in post-implant performance. Twenty prelingually deafened children (aged from 2.0 to 6.0 years) who received the Nucleus 24 cochlear implant participated in this study. All subjects had used their implant for at least 1 year after(More)
This study investigated changes in long-term cochlear implant MAPs (values of the program to stimulate electrodes) in children, and examined whether there were significant differences between children and adults. Ten prelingually deafened children (aged from 2.7 to 7.8 years) who received the Nucleus 22 cochlear implant at Kyoto University between 1996 and(More)
We describe a 22-year-old woman with an adult-onset, slowly progressive form of subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE), who was repeatedly evaluated by brain magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS). The brain lesion spectrum showed a decrease in N-acetylaspartate (NAA) resonance, an increase in inositol (Ins) resonance, and an unaltered choline signal.(More)
The objective of this study was to observe the effects of brassinosteroid, gibberelin, and auxin application on the development and foliar anatomy of Tabebuia alba (Cham.) Sandw. seedlings. T. alba seedlings were grown in plastic bags with fertilized soil and treated with the following: 1water (control); 2brassinolide (BR1) 0.104 mM; 3BR1 0.208 mM;(More)
Thirteen patients, who received parathyroidectomy within 5 years after the initiation of hemodialysis, were discussed on their clinical characteristics and their prognoses. 204 patients received the first parathyroidectomy due to secondary hyperparathyroidism in our department, 13 of which were selected on dialysis duration. 9 patients were female and(More)
BACKGROUND Sarcoidosis is caused by Th1-type immune responses to unknown agents, and is linked to the infectious agent Propionibacterium acnes. Many strains of P. acnes isolated from sarcoid lesions cause intracellular infection and autophagy may contribute to the pathogenesis of sarcoidosis. We examined whether P. acnes induces autophagy. METHODS Three(More)
