We investigated the effects of inhibitors of bone resorption (estrogen, raloxifene, and alendronate) on the processes of fracture repair in ovariectomized (OVX) rats. One hundred forty female Sprague-Dawley rats at 3 months of age were either OVX or sham-operated and divided into five groups: sham control, OVX control, estrogen (17alpha-ethynyl estradiol(More)
PURPOSE To characterize the spatial and temporal course of ictal high-frequency oscillations (HFOs) recorded by subdural EEG in children with intractable neocortical epilepsy. METHODS We retrospectively studied nine children (four girls, five boys; 4-17 yr) who presented with intractable extrahippocampal localization-related epilepsy and who underwent(More)
This study aimed to investigate the effect of long-term suppression of bone resorption by bisphosphonate on the microstructure, accumulation of microdamage, and mechanical properties of trabecular bone. Twenty-nine 1-year-old beagles (15 males, 14 females) were divided into three groups. The control group (CNT) was treated daily with vehicle, and the other(More)
UNLABELLED Effects of long-term suppression of bone remodeling by bisphosphonate were investigated in cortical bone of dog rib. Although microdamage was accumulated, BMD was increased without increasing cortical bone area. Consequently, the intrinsic material properties were not reduced. INTRODUCTION Recently, we have reported that long-term suppression(More)
OBJECTIVE Clinical severity of alternating hemiplegia of childhood (AHC) is extremely variable. To investigate genotype-phenotype correlations in AHC, we analyzed the clinical information and ATP1A3 mutations in patients with AHC. METHODS Thirty-five Japanese patients who were clinically diagnosed with AHC participated in this study. ATP1A3 mutations were(More)
PURPOSE High-frequency oscillations (HFOs), termed ripples at 80-200 Hz and fast ripples (FRs) at >200/250 Hz, recorded by intracranial electroencephalography (EEG), may be a valuable surrogate marker for the localization of the epileptogenic zone. We evaluated the relationship of the resection of focal brain regions containing high-rate interictal HFOs and(More)
The goal of this study was to investigate Cystatin SN, a cysteine protease inhibitor, as a novel tumor marker for colorectal cancer (CRC). Gene expression profiles of mRNA from normal tissues and cancer cell lines were performed. Twenty-eight monoclonal antibodies for Cystatin SN were generated and serum Cystatin SN was quantified using ELISA in sera from(More)
It still remains controversial whether simple obesity, as measured by the body mass index (BMI), is an independent risk factor for Barrett's esophagus (BE). Recent studies have shown abdominal obesity, as defined by the waist circumference (WC) and the waist-to-hip ratio (WHR), to be a risk factor for BE, independent of the BMI, with the association between(More)
OBJECTIVE To localize high-frequency oscillations (HFOs) on the cortex during epileptic spasms using video subdural EEG and Multiple Band Frequency Analysis (MBFA). METHODS Using video subdural EEG sampled at 1 kHz, we studied a 14-year-old boy with asymmetric epileptic spasms of possible left frontal origin. We identified HFOs, then analyzed and(More)
