OBJECT The morphological and functional impairments of neurons and their connections caused by hydrocephalus, and their restoration by ventricular shunt placement were investigated in experimental hydrocephalus by the immunostaining of neurofilaments, which constitute the major component of the neuronal cytoskeleton. METHODS Progressive hydrocephalus was(More)
Since the discovery of small non-coding RNAs, the analyses of microRNA (miRNA) expression patterns in human cancer have provided new insights into cancer biology. miRNA-21 has been suggested to be one of the miRNAs that have an important role in the development or biological behavior of a variety of malignancies, including pancreatic cancer. This study was(More)
Twenty six shoulder joint capsules obtained from 13 autopsy cases were studied to evaluate the nerve distribution using immunohistochemical techniques. Immunohistochemical staining of polyclonal S-100 protein or protein gene product 9.5 was more sensitive, specific, and reproducible compared with conventional gold chloride methods. A small number of(More)

A 60-year-old female with intravascular lymphoma (IVL) presented with the complaint of urinary dysfunction and gait disturbance. T2 weighted MR imaging of the thoracic spinal cord showed a hyperintense lesion, and brain MR imaging indicated hyperintense lesions in the deep white matter. Multiple sclerosis was assumed, so steroid pulse therapy was(More)
We describe an autopsied case of an 86-year-old woman who presented with acute tetraparesis, bulbar palsy, and respiratory insufficiency. MRI showed a T2 hyperintensity lesion in the medulla oblongata and C1 and C2 level cervical cord, and an unruptured aneurysm in the left posterior inferior cerebellar artery. With an initial diagnosis of Bickerstaffs(More)
Characteristic degeneration of the nerves in shoulder joints was recognized in 26 of 35 capsules (74.3%) from 20 cadavers. No left or right or gender differences were found. Histologic features of the nerves were (1) thickening of the perineurium, (2) myxoid degeneration in the endoneurium, and (3) hyaline globular structures with a whorled, oligocellular(More)
Plasma glucose and plasma immunoreactive insulin (IRI) levels were measured during the 75 g glucose tolerance test (GTT) in healthy pregnant women, to clarify the changes of glucose metabolism during the last trimester of pregnancy. The glucose tolerance decreased with gestational time. After 33 weeks of gestation, the peak levels of the post-glucose(More)
