PURPOSE The stereotactic radiotherapy (SRT) system verifies isocenter accuracy in patient space. In this study, we evaluate isocenter accuracy in frameless SRT using implanted cranial gold markers. MATERIALS AND METHODS We performed frameless SRT on 43 intracranial tumor patients between August 1997 and December 2000. The treatment technique was… (More)
Suppression of NLRP3 inflammasome by γ-tocotrienol ameliorates type 2 diabetes" (2016).
The RNA-binding protein Rbfox3 is a well-known splicing regulator that is used as a marker for post-mitotic neurons in various vertebrate species. Although recent studies indicate a variable expression of Rbfox3 in non-neuronal tissues, including lung tissue, its cellular function in lung cancer remains largely unknown. Here, we report that the number of… (More)
pH and water hardness are considered to be important factors for population dynamics in crustaceans. In this study, the effects of pH (6, 7, 8, and 9) and water hardness (40 mg CaCO3/l and 160 mg CaCO3/l) on the growth and reproductive response of the freshwater ostracod Heterocypris incongruens Ramdohr were investigated. Heterocypris incongruens exposed to… (More)
