We evaluated the cytotoxic effect of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) on rat hepatoma dRLh-84 cells in vitro. When cells were cultured in the presence of CLA, strong cytotoxic effect on dRLh-84 cells was recognized at 1 microM level compared to the control vehicle group, and trans10, cis12-CLA but not cis9, trans11-CLA was shown to be an active isomer for(More)
Previous studies showed that food craving in eating disorders can be weakened with high-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) on the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC). The aims of this study were to assess cerebral oxygenation change induced with rTMS and to assess the short-term impact of rTMS on food craving and other(More)
OBJECTIVE It is difficult to differentiate multiple system atrophy (MSA) from Parkinson's disease (PD) at least in the early stage. Urodynamic study (UDS) is useful in differentiating MSA from PD. We aimed to clarify which UDS parameter was useful in differentiating MSA from PD. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed 273 cases and performed UDS and external(More)
BACKGROUND Autonomic urinary dysfunction affects patients with progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP); however, the severity and prevalence of urinary dysfunctions in these patients compared with those observed in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) and multiple system atrophy (MSA) are unknown. OBJECTIVE We compared urinary dysfunction characteristics(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the ability of sphincter electromyography (EMG) and post-void residual urine volume (PVR) during a free-flow study and a pressure-flow study (PFS) for distinguishing multiple system atrophy (MSA) from Parkinson's disease (PD). METHODS We retrospectively reviewed 241 case records; both urodynamic study and sphincter EMG were(More)
