In this report, we describe a laser-latex combination system that enables membrane-impermeable molecules to penetrate cell membranes. Laser light (Q-switched Nd:YAG laser, 532.5 nm) was used to irradiate a mixture of commercial latex particles (blue dyed, 1 micro m in diameter) and mouse fibrosarcoma (Meth-A) cells. After irradiation, membrane permeability(More)
The biostimulatory effects of laser irradiation focus not only in the field of soft tissue but also bone formation. Studies have shown that the light of a nanosecond pulsed laser which has a high peak power can produce stress waves in tissue. We have hypothesized that nanosecond pulsed laser irradiation stimulates bone formation. Our aim was to clarify the(More)
Sugar-pendant [60] fullerene derivatives have been prepared from carbohydrate-linked azides 1a-e. Both monosugar (4a-e) and bissugar derivatives (5a-e) produce singlet oxygen ((1)O(2)) under laser irradiation (355 nm) proved by the direct observation of (1)O(2) emission at 1270 nm. Monosugar derivatives exhibit photocytotoxicity varying by the attached(More)
 Low-energy laser irradiation has positive effects on bone fracture healing, osteoblast proliferation, bone nodule formation, and alkaline phosphatase activity. However, the mechanism by which low-energy laser irradiation affects bone is not clearly known. It was recently found that light at a low radiation dosage is absorbed by intracellular chromophores.(More)
A study has been conducted in which HeLa cells are incubated with hematoporphyrin derivative (HpD) for 1 h (1 microgram/ml of HpD in PBS) to compare the use of continuous wave (CW) and pulsed laser (10 Hz repetition rate and 7-9 ns pulse width) light for photodynamic therapy. Cytotoxic effects on the cells are evaluated by the(More)
Agar jelly (0.5%), which has the similar physical properties to bavarian cream (bavarois) or pudding available in a market, was tested to study how soft foods were processed in the human oral cavity. Cineradiographic observations revealed that the soft foods were caught between the tongue and hard palate and crashed to be swallowed, when the food size was(More)
The name of gastritis was introduced by Broussais in 1808. He considered it as the seat of febrile diseases such as typhoid fever. However, what he had seen was soon proved to be a postmortem change and the name of gastritis was discarded for some time. Nevertheless the presence of inflammatory change of the gastric mucosa was gradually recognized with the(More)
We investigated the effect of multiple stress waves with peak stress of less than 3 MPa on chemosensitivity of HeLa cells adhered on plastic. HeLa cells exposed to stress waves retained more than 95% of the viability found in untreated cells. The scanning electron microscopy of cells exposed to stress waves showed ruffling microvilli, indicating a change in(More)
