We investigated the relationship between interleukin-6 (IL-6) levels and subset profiles of T lymphocyte (T-cell) and macrophage in peritoneal fluid (PF) with or without endometriosis (EM). IL-6 levels in PF with EM were significantly higher than those without EM. IL-6 producing cells with EM were analyzed in each activated mature T-cell (CD3+CD69+) and(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to establish safer cordocentesis by using newly produced 25-gauge needles rather than the needles currently used. METHODS Human umbilical cords were preserved in experiment 1. Pinching both ends, cordocenteses were performed by filling the cord with saline inside the sphere of the pressure-equilibrated Ringer's(More)
Parvovirus B19-infected hydrops fetalis was treated using gammaglobulin injection into the peritoneal cavity (GIFPeC) with B19-IgG-rich immunoglobulin. Fetal anemia and hydrops resolved, and B19-DNA in fetal ascites decreased despite no change in maternal B19-IgG or B19-DNA. Gammaglobulin injection into the peritoneal cavity is thus useful for treating(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to identify suitable applications for cerebral MR (magnetic resonance) scanning in cases of severe preeclampsia and eclampsia through comparison of clinical course and easily accessible parameters. METHODS From January 2001 to December 2003, cerebral MR scans were performed on 43 women with severe preeclampsia; of those(More)
ABSTRACT A single chip, versatile digital signal processor has been developed, which enables compact and low cost telecommunications equipment realization. The processor architecture has been optimized for real time voiceband signal processing by adopting efficient microprogram control and by integrating a 16 16 bit parallel multiplier on a single chip. The(More)
BACKGROUND This is a case report of fetal leukemia associated with hydramnios. CASE When the hydramnios was treated with amnioreduction, near-term bradycardia was recorded ultrasonographically, resulting in immediate cesarean delivery. At birth, neonatal leukemia was diagnosed and there was no evidence of chromosomal abnormalities. The infant died of(More)
