We report on the existence of two kinds of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), MMP-2 and MMP-9, in human seminal plasma. Partial purification of the proteinases was achieved by two steps, consisting of chromatography on a gel-filtration column and then on a gelatin affinity column. Proteinase activities in the chromatography extracts were shown to hydrolyse a(More)
A new, simple and sensitive pre-column high-performance chromatographic method for the determination of diabetes marker d-glucose, 1,5-anhydro-d-glucitol and related compounds is reported. Sugars (d-glucose, d-galactose, d-mannose, sucrose and arabinose) were derivatized with benzoic acid (BA) at 80 degrees C for 60 min. l-Fucose, fructose, d-lactose,(More)
BACKGROUND Traditionally, we have been puncturing the internal jugular vein (IJV) with the head rotated. However, in adults it has been suggested that rotation of the head increases the magnitude of an overlapping of the IJV to the carotid artery (CA). Therefore, in infants and children, we have examined anatomic relationship between the IJV and the CA(More)
Previously reported data have indicated the existence of two kinds of matrix metalloproteinases (MMP-2 and MMP-9) in human seminal plasma (Shimokawa et al, 2002). Here we report the existence of complexes of gelatinases and tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase-1 (TIMP-1) and TIMP-2 in human seminal plasma. After the seminal plasma supernatant was separated(More)
The new non-reversed transcriptase inhibitor (NRTI) drugs for treatment of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) are reported. An improvement in the sensitivity and selectivity of high-performance liquid chromatography was obtained by diamond electrode-electrochemical detector and fluorescence detector owing to different structural information. The four(More)
BACKGROUND For management of postoperative bladder spasm by the ureteral reimplantation, general anesthesia and epidural anesthesia are selected in many hospitals, but epidural anesthesia is not a common technique for various complications and risks. We examined whether postoperative bladder spasms can be prevented by general anesthesia combined with single(More)
We consider groups of orientation-preserving real analytic diffeomorphisms of the circle which have a finite image under the rotation number function. We show that if such a group is nondiscrete with respect to the C-topology then it has a finite orbit. As a corollary, we show that if such a group has no finite orbit then each of its subgroups contains(More)
HMS0014 cells were GBR-engineered to proliferate and differentiate into mature osteoblast(Ob)-like cells, which initiated hard tissue matrix deposition in both monolayer and PuraMatrix 3-D cultures. Subsequently, the osteogenesis initiated with attachment/adhesion of HMS0014 cells on either Titanium (Ti) or Ti alloy discs modified with osteoconductive/(More)
We report a case of a 78-years-old woman with common iliac arteriovenous fistula associated with ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm. Common iliac arteriovenous fistula was diagnosed preoperatively by CT. Anesthesia was induced with propofol and vecuronium and maintained with sevoflurane 2-3% in oxygen. Anesthesia was managed successfully monitoring(More)
We examined the effects of chondroitinases on the release of dermatan sulfate (DS)-induced arginine amidase (AA) from rabbit ear artery. DS-induced AA release was significantly decreased by treatment with chondroitinase ABC (ABCase) in the rabbit ear artery. On the other hand, Chondroitinase ACII (ACIIase) enhanced spontaneous and DS-induced AA release.(More)
