Effects of testosterone on circadian rhythmicity in olds
 miceAbstractSerum testosterone concentration decreases with age in humans and rodents. Accordingly, old male mice show changes in locomotor activity rhythms: a lengthened free-running period and decreased activity levels among others. To investigate whether testosterone replacement improves the age-related decline in circadian rhythmicity, we examined the effects of testosterone on the circadian rhythms of wheel running activity in old male mice. Intact male C57BL/6J mice (18–22 months old) were...

Intermittent hyperbaric oxygen exposure mobilizing peroxiredoxin 6 to prevent oxygen toxicityAbstractIntermittent hyperbaric oxygen exposure (IE-HBO) can protect the body against oxygen toxicity, but the underlying mechanisms are not very clear. Peroxiredoxin 6 (Prdx6) is a special endogenous antioxidative protein. We explored if the protective effects of IE-HBO are related to Prdx6. Mice were exposed to 280 kPa O2 for 60 min, followed by 30-min exposure to 20% O2/N2 mixture with equal pressure,...

Thyroxin and calcitonin secretion into thyroid venous blood is regulated by pharyngeal mechanical stimulation
 in anesthetized ratsAbstractThe effects of the pharyngeal non-noxious mechanical stimulation on the secretion of immunoreactive thyroxin (iT4), immunoreactive calcitonin (iCT), and immunoreactive parathyroid hormone (iPTH) into thyroid venous blood were examined in anesthetized rats. Secretion rates of iT4, iCT, and iPTH were calculated from their concentration in thyroid venous plasma and the plasma flow rate. A mechanical stimulation was delivered to the pharynx by a rubber balloon placed on the...

Assessment of the molluscicidal impact of extracted chlorophyllin on some biochemical parameters in the nervous tissue and histological changes in Biomphalaria alexandrina and Lymnaea natalensis snailsAbstractBiomphalaria alexandrina and Lymnaea natalensis snails are the intermediate hosts of schistosomiasis and fasciolosis. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the molluscicidal activity of chlorophyll extract as a photodynamic substance against these snails and how it affected its tissues...

Electrical Storm: Current Evidence, Clinical Implications, and Future PerspectivesAbstractPurpose of ReviewElectrical storm (ES) is a life-threatening medical emergency of repetitive episodes of sustained ventricular arrhythmias within a short period. Its occurrence is associated with poor short- and long-term survival, even in patients with implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD). Management of ES is challenging and mainly based on retrospective studies. This article reviews the existing literature...

Recurrence of hepatocellular carcinoma at the porta-hepatis following liver transplantation diagnosed on EUS-FNAAbstractHepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a potentially fatal complication of chronic liver disease. Liver transplantation is now the preferred treatment due to good outcomes. We present a unique case of recurrence of HCC at the porta hepatis four years after orthotopic liver transplantation diagnosed via endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA). Our report also highlights...

Small papular pseudolymphoma induced by a patch test for gold, T. Kiyohara, H Tanimura, K. Makimura, S. Shimada, S. Ohnishi, M. Miyamoto, T. Shijimaya, N. Ma, H. OkamotoFirst Published: 27 July 2019Small papular pseudolymphoma (SPP)1 is characterized by multiple angiomatous papules, mainly on the acral sites of the hands and feet in children. It was first reported as acral pseudolymphomatous angiokeratoma of children (APACHE). The disorder may be recognized as a pseudolymphoma rather than a vascular...
