We review the recent progress of electroencephalography (EEG) and magnetoencephalography (MEG) to elucidate pain perception mechanisms in humans, since EEG and MEG have an excellent temporal resolution in order of msec. MEG is more useful to detect activated areas following painful stimulation, because the spatial resolution of EEG is not very high. For(More)
The chemokine receptor CCR5 is constitutively associated with the T cell co-receptor CD4 in plasma cell membranes, but the physiological role of this interaction has not been elucidated. Here we show that detergent-solubilized, purified CCR5 can directly associate with purified soluble fragments of the extracellular portion of CD4. We further demonstrate(More)
Isoketals are highly reactive gamma-ketoaldehydes formed by the oxidation of arachidonic acid that rapidly adduct to proteins. To investigate the formation of isoketal adducts in vivo, we isolated and characterized a single-chain antibody from a phage displayed recombinant ScFv library that bound a model peptide adducted with synthetic 15-E2-isoketal.(More)
The problem of who is mixing with whom is of great theoretical importance in the context of heterosexual mixing. In this article, we publish for the first time, data from a study carried out in 1989 that had the goal of estimating who is mixing with whom, in heterosexually active college populations in the presence of co-factors like drinking. The gathering(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the long-term efficacy of pterygium excision combined with autologous corneal limbal stem cell transplantation in the treatment of pterygium. METHODS Fifty five patients (57 eyes) diagnosed with primary pterygium undergoing pterygium excision combined with autologous corneal limbal stem cell transplantation between December 2003 and(More)
Delayed neuropsychological sequelae (DNS) are the most severe and clinically intractable complications following acute carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. Symptoms of DNS often resemble those of Parkinson’s disease (PD), suggesting shared neurological deficits. Furthermore, Parkinson protein 2 (PARK2) mutations are associated with PD and other neurodegenerative(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the long-term outcomes of a non-valved, Chinese-made Hunan aqueous drainage device (HAD) in patients with refractory glaucoma, compared to trabeculectomy. METHODS This was a retrospective observational case series, including 27 patients with refractory glaucoma who either underwent HAD implantation (n=11) or trabeculectomy (n=16). The(More)
Objective: This study aimed to evaluate the variation of brainstem auditory evoked potentials (BAEP) in patients with delayed encephalopathy who got acute carbon monoxide poisoning. Methods: Thirty-two controls and forty patients have been performed in BAEPs. Wave I, II, III, IV, V latencies and I-III, III-V, I-V interpeak latencies were measured,(More)
To explore the relationship between the clinical manifestations and functional magnetic resonance images of delayed encephalopathy after carbon monoxide intoxication. Six patients received the MRI were diagnosed with delayed encephalopathy after carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. Clinical manifestations were observed in each patient. MRI revealed multiple(More)
