    The number of case reports on elderly-onset herpes simplex encephalitis (HSE) has been increasing. We encountered the case of an 89-year-old woman with HSE, who was probably one of the oldest-onset patients in Japan. She was a bed patient with underlying diseases of old cerebral infarction and c...

  9. Photoinduced molecular reorientation in photoreactive liquid crystalline copolymers in a phase retarder application

    Polymer 52(25):5788 (2011)

    Polymethacrylate copolymers, which have hexamethylene spacer groups terminated with 4-methoxyphenyl-4′-oxycinnamate (MPC) and 4-oxybenzoic acid (BA) in the side chain, were synthesized. Thin films underwent thermally enhanced photoinduced cooperative molecular reorientation using linearly p...

    In Japan,the prevalence of non-herpetic acute limbic encephalitis (NHALE),characterized by a lack of evidence of the herpes simplex virus (HSV) genome or enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) antibody,has shown an upward trend. The causes of NHALE include several anti-neural antibodies relat...
