The clinical efficacy of exercise training in individuals with heart failure is well established, but the mechanism underlying such efficacy has remained unclear. An imbalance between cardiac hypertrophy and angiogenesis is implicated in the transition to heart failure. We investigated the effects of exercise training on cardiac pathophysiology in(More)
Organic cation transporter-3 (OCT3) is expressed in several tissues including the brain. We have previously demonstrated that rats with behavioral sensitization to methamphetamine (METH) increased the brain penetration of METH with decreased expression of OCT3 in brain. Considering the earlier in vitro studies demonstrating that 1) OCT3 could transport(More)
A 66-year-old woman receiving continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis developed acute respiratory distress 12 hours after a fall. Blood gas analysis revealed hypoxia (PaO2 67.7 torr) and metabolic acidosis with an increased anion gap, consistent with lactic acidosis (lactate, 86.5 mg/dL; normal range, 4.0-16.0). Magnetic resonance imaging showed a lumbar(More)
Crizotinib, a first-line anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK)-tyrosine kinase inhibitor, has shown promising results for the treatment of locally advanced and metastatic lung cancer presenting the ALK rearrangement. On the other hand, secondary organizing pneumonia (OP) caused by anti-cancer drugs has been reported. While it is sometimes needed to rechallenge(More)
The patient was a 9-year-old premenarcheal pediatric female, whose chief complaint was a well-circumscribed palpable right breast mass without nipple discharge. Although the patient had noticed the lump 2 years prior to hospital admission, its size (1.5 × 1.3 cm) had been stable. There was no family history or previous history of malignancies. Physical(More)

Sepsis is characterized by various symptoms, signs and underlying pathophysiology. To investigate possible mechanisms underlying this diversity, we compared the cardiovascular effects of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) derived from Escherichia coli (E-LPS) with those of LPS from Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P-LPS) in rats. We also examined the possible roles of tumor(More)
