The aim of the present study was to investigate the action of pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP) on ion transport in the guinea pig distal colon. Submucosal/mucosal segments from distal colon were mounted in Ussing flux chambers, and increases in short-circuit current (Isc) were used as an index of secretion. Serosal addition of(More)
We examined the effect of human epidermal growth factor (hEGF) on the healing rate of gastric ulcers induced in rats. These ulcers were produced by a submucosal injection of 0.03 ml of 20% acetic acid into the stomach. Healing of the ulcers was delayed when a daily s.c. injection of indomethacin (1 mg/kg) was given for 4 wks. hEGF (100 and 300(More)
We examined the effects of orally administered human epidermal growth factor (hEGF) on healing of acetic acid-induced gastric ulcers in rats. hEGF, given twice daily at 30 and 100 micrograms/kg for 2 weeks or at 100 micrograms/kg for 4 weeks to rats with ulcers, had no effect on natural healing or the gastric secretion, delayed one caused by indomethacin.(More)
Repeated administration of histamine X 2HCl (40 mg/kg X 4) significantly augmented mepirizole (200 mg/kg) or cysteamine (300 mg/kg)-induced duodenal and gastric lesions in rats within 6 hr. Most of the duodenal lesions were penetrating ulcers and were located over the entire duodenum. Gastric lesions were mainly located in the antrum adjacent to the(More)
Following stroke, rehabilitation exercises paired with medical treatment are important for the recovery and maintenance of upper limb function. We developed a 2-DOF passive haptic system for upper limb rehabilitation and software focusing on reaching exercises, known as the coin collecting program, which provides training and evaluation of motor function,(More)
