This study describes the Brief Inventory of Social Support Exchange Network (BISSEN) as a standardized brief inventory measuring various aspects of social support. We confirmed the reliability and validity for function and direction of support and standardized the BISSEN. For Sample 1, a stratified random sampling method was used to select 5200 residents in Japan. We conducted mail surveys and responses were retrieved from 2274 participants (collection rate 43.7%). Participants completed a questionnaire packet that included BISSEN, suicidal ideation, depression, support seeking, and Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support (MSPSS)...

Background: Amrubicin is approved for treating non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and small-cell lung cancer. However, no direct comparisons between amrubicin and docetaxel, a standard treatment for NSCLC, have been reported. Patients and methods: We conducted a randomized phase III trial of Japanese NSCLC patients after one or two chemotherapy regimens. Patients were randomized to amrubicin (35 mg/m2 on days 1-3 every 3 weeks) or docetaxel (60 mg/m2 on day 1 every 3 weeks)...

BACKGROUND: 5-Aminolevulinic acid is a precursor of photosensitizing protoporphyrin IX and has been applied for photodynamic diagnosis of brain and bladder tumors with few side effects. Although most upper gastrointestinal tumors can be detected during photodynamic diagnosis, some tumors containing signet-ring cells cannot be visualized. Here, we aimed to assess whether proteins involved in the absorbance, activation, and turnover of protoporphyrin IX altered the fluorescence signal in gastric cancer...

BACKGROUND: Previous studies have revealed the interactive effects of airborne pollen and particulate matter on the daily consultations for pollinosis, but it is uncertain which compositions are responsible. This study aimed to investigate the interactive effects of specific PM2.5 compositions and airborne pollen on the daily number of clinic visits for pollinosis in Fukuoka. METHODS: We obtained daily data on pollen concentrations, PM2.5 compositions, PM2.5 mass, gaseous pollutants (SO2, NO2, CO, and O3), and weather variables monitored in Fukuoka between February and April, 2002-2012...

Meibomian glands secrete lipids (meibum) that form the surface lipid layer of the tear film and thereby prevent excessive evaporation of tear fluid. Meibomian gland dysfunction is a major cause of evaporative dry eye, which is more prevalent than aqueous-deficient dry eye. Noninvasive meibography with infrared light and an infrared charge-coupled device camera can detect morphological changes of meibomian glands in both upper and lower eyelids, whereas tear interferometry allows qualitative and quantitative evaluations of the lipid layer of the tear film...

IL-33 is one of the critical cytokines that activates group 2 innate lymphoid cells (ILC2s) and mediates allergic reactions. Accumulating evidence suggests that IL-33 is also involved in the pathogenesis of several chronic inflammatory diseases. Previously, we generated an IL-5 reporter mouse and revealed that lung IL-5-producing ILC2s played essential roles in regulating eosinophil biology. In this study, we evaluated the consequences of IL-33 administration over a long period, and we observed significant expansion of ILC2s and eosinophils surrounding pulmonary arteries...

To elucidate the mechanisms by which cells respond to extracellular stimuli, the behavior of intracellular signaling proteins in a single cell should be directly examined, while simultaneously recording the cellular response. In Escherichia coli, an extracellular chemotactic stimulus is thought to induce a switch in the rotational direction of the flagellar motor, elicited by the binding and dissociation of the phosphorylated form of CheY (CheY-P) to and from the motor. We recently provided direct evidence for the binding of CheY-P to a functioning flagellar motor in live cells...

BACKGROUND: The primary treatment strategy for chronic atlantoaxial rotatory fixation (chro-AARF) is traction followed by bracing or application of a Halo device. However, to complete these conservative therapies, patient cooperation is mandatory. If conservative therapy fails, surgery is required for reduction and prevention of recurrence. It has been considered that surgery for AARF necessitates solid bony fusion. However, once bony fusion is achieved, loss of range of motion is problematic...

Malignant psoas syndrome is a rare malignant condition presenting as lumbosacral plexopathy and painful fixed flexion of the hip. Metastasis to the psoas muscle is observed, which damages the nerve bundles in the lumbosacral plexuses. The syndrome presents as refractory lower back pain with several other neurological symptoms. The pain is difficult to control because it is a mixture of nociceptive and neuropathic pain, which indicates that treatment requires a versatile approach. The authors report a case of severe back pain caused by metastasis to the psoas muscle of advanced gastric cancer in a patient who underwent palliative radiotherapy under epidural analgesia...

A 70-year-old man developed urinary retention in the early stages of herpes simplex virus (HSV) type-1 encephalitis. A nerve conduction study suggested latent myeloradiculitis. This is the first report of human herpes simplex virus-1 encephalitis followed by urinary retention at early stage from the onset like the Elsberg syndrome. Although relatively few similar cases have been reported, we consider that urinary retention is common in HSV-1 encephalitis, in which disturbances of consciousness usually require bladder catheterization from the onset...

BACKGROUND Pancreatic intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) present a clinical challenge. Evidence-based guidelines are lacking. The so-called "Fukuoka criteria" were developed to assess the risk of malignancy in IPMNs upon imaging. However, little is known about their diagnostic value and the natural course of IPMNs. Thus, the aim of this study was the assessment of Fukuoka criteria and patient management in pancreatic IPMNs -during follow-up. MATERIAL AND METHODS IPMNs were identified via retrospective survey of endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) examinations...

Energy cost of transport per unit distance (CoT; J·kg-1·km-1) displays a U-shaped fashion in walking and a linear fashion in running as a function of gait speed (v; km·h-1). There exists an intersection between U-shaped and linear CoT-v relationships, being termed energetically optimal transition speed (EOTS; km·h-1). Combined effects of gradient and moderate normobaric hypoxia (15.0% O2) were investigated when walking and running at the EOTS in fifteen young males. The CoT values were determined at eight walking speeds (2...

The molecular origins of adsorption of lignin-derived phenolics to metal-organic framework NU-1000 are investigated from aqueous solution, as well as in competitive mode with glucose present in the same aqueous mixture. A comparison of adsorption equilibrium constants (Kads) for phenolics functionalized with either carboxylic acid or aldehyde substituents demonstrated only a slight increase (less than a factor of 6) for the former according to both experiments and calculations. This small difference in Kads between aldehyde and carboxylic-acid substituted adsorbates is consistent with the pyrene unit of NU-1000 as the adsorption site, rather than the zirconia nodes, while at saturation coverage, the adsorption capacity suggests multiple guests per pyrene...

Benign metastasizing leiomyoma (BML) is a rare condition in which a benign uterine leiomyoma causes metastasis, mainly to the lungs. The patient was a 72-year-old woman who had undergone hysterectomy for an uterine leiomyoma at 37 years of age. Between the ages of 52 and 68 years, she had undergone 5 metastatectomies for 10 BMLs. At the current presentation, 2 nodules located in the right upper lobe of the lung were resected. The histological diagnosis was BML, and immunohistochemical staining demonstrated that the tumor cells were positive for estrogen and progesterone receptors...
