Rapid vitamin K antagonist (VKA) reversal is required in patients experiencing major bleeding or requiring urgent surgery. Four-factor prothrombin complex concentrate (4F-PCC; Beriplex(®)/Kcentra(®)) was shown in two large randomized controlled, international phase 3b trials to be an effective alternative to plasma for urgent VKA reversal. In the present prospective, open-label, single-arm phase 3b trial, we evaluate the efficacy and safety of 4F-PCC in Japanese patients. Eleven patients [international normalized ratio (INR) ≥2] requiring rapid VKA reversal owing to major bleeding (n = 6) or before urgent surgical/invasive procedures (n = 5) were administered 4F-PCC dosed based on INR and weight...

It is not yet clear whether the discordance of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (non-HDL-C) predicts the follow-up clinical outcome (major adverse cardiovascular events: MACEs) in patients with coronary stent implantation. Among 2015 patients with coronary stent implantation (Fukuoka University [FU]-Registry), excluding those with acute coronary syndrome or hemodialysis, we selected 801 patients who had undergone successful stent implantation with a follow-up until 18 months, and classified them into 3 groups according to baseline LDL-C and non-HDL-C levels [percentile(P)non-HDL-C more than (P)LDL-C, (P)non-HDL-C equal to (P)LDL-C, and (P)non-HDL-C less than (P) LDL-C]...

Due to increasing precision of modern imaging modalities, intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMN) of the pancreas are found with increasing prevalence. Despite their malignant potential IPMN are often kept under surveillance and are not immediately resected. The 2012 International Consensus Guidelines of Fukuoka have been widely accepted for the management of IPMN. They recommend surgical resection for branch duct IPMN with "high risk stigmata", while branch duct IPMN with "worrisome features" should undergo observation without immediate resection...

Cu/Zn-superoxide dismutase (SOD1) is an enzyme that disproportionates superoxide anion into hydrogen peroxide and molecular oxygen. The enzymatic activity of SOD1 requires the binding of copper and zinc ions and also the formation of a conserved intramolecular disulfide bond. In a eukaryotic cell, a copper chaperone for SOD1 (CCS) has been known to supply a copper ion and also introduce the disulfide bond into SOD1; however, a mechanism controlling the CCS-dependent activation of SOD1 remains obscure. Here, we characterized CCS isolated from a human liver fluke, Clonorchis sinensis, and found that an N-terminal domain of CCS was essential in supplying a copper ion in SOD1...

AIMS: Matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) is up-regulated during heart failure (HF) and influences ventricular remodeling. We hypothesized that disparity between MMP-9 and tissue inhibitors of MMP-1 (TIMP-1) results in clinical manifestations and is related to prognostic risk in patients with chronic HF. METHODS AND RESULTS: Plasma levels of MMP-9, TIMP-1, and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) were measured in 173 patients with chronic HF. Combined endpoints of worsening HF events were assessed during follow-up (median 109 months)...

Patients with persistent atrial fibrillation (AF) and a large left atrium are at a high risk for thromboembolisms. Recently, direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) have mainly been used for the prevention of cardiac embolisms caused by AF. Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is performed in order to exclude any left atrial appendage (LAA) thrombi. We herein report two cases of persistent AF, both of which were treated with rivaroxaban for more than two years. Since TEE identified mobile LAA thrombi with this treatment, we switched from rivaroxaban to the direct thrombin inhibitor dabigatran...

Introduction Therapeutic drug monitoring is necessary for lithium, but clinical application of several prediction strategies is still limited because of insufficient predictive accuracy. We herein proposed a suitable model, using creatinine clearance (CLcr)-based lithium clearance (Li-CL). Methods Patients receiving lithium provided the following information: serum lithium and creatinine concentrations, time of blood draw, dosing regimen, concomitant medications, and demographics. Li-CL was calculated as a daily dose per trough concentration for each subject, and the mean of Li-CL/CLcr was used to estimate Li-CL for another 30 subjects...

BACKGROUND: Rice blast is the most serious disease afflicting rice and there is an urgent need for the use of disease resistance (R) genes in blast tolerance breeding programs. Pb1 is classified as a quantitative resistance gene and it does not have fungal specificity. Pb1-mediated resistance develops in the latter stages of growth. However, some cultivars, such as Kanto209 (K209), cultivar name Satojiman, despite possessing Pb1, do not exert resistance to rice blast during the reproductive stage...

In this study, we investigated the genetic basis of seed shattering and dormancy in Hokuriku 193 and bred an NIL improved these traits. Analysis of an F3 population from Hokuriku 193 × Koshihikari revealed a general correspondence between seed shattering and genotypes at the qSH1 locus, suggesting a strong influence of this locus on the seed shattering in Hokuriku 193. An F2 population from [ms-bo] Nekken 2 × Hokuriku 193 was also analyzed to identify quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for seed dormancy as measured by germination rate in the first December and March after seed harvest...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) have been reported to reflect the antitumor immunity of the host and correlate with the therapeutic outcomes and survival. Nowadays TILs are attracting attention as new biomarkers of diseases such as colorectal cancer. TILs are classified into several subsets, among which CD8(+) T cells directly attack cancer cells and play a central role in antitumor immunity. A high density of CD8(+) TILs has been reported to correlate with a better clinical outcome...

The management of intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN) continues to evolve. In particular, the indications for resection of branch duct IPMN have changed from early resection to more deliberate observation as proposed by the international consensus guidelines of 2006 and 2012. Another guideline proposed by the American Gastroenterological Association in 2015 restricted indications for surgery more stringently and recommended physicians to stop surveillance if no significant change had occurred in a pancreatic cyst after five years of surveillance, or if a patient underwent resection and a non-malignant IPMN was found...

AIMS/HYPOTHESIS: Serum adiponectin has been reported to impact upon fracture risk in the general population. Although type 2 diabetes is associated with increased fracture risk, it is unclear whether serum adiponectin predicts fractures in individuals with type 2 diabetes. The aim of the study was to prospectively investigate the relationship between serum adiponectin and fracture risk in individuals with type 2 diabetes. METHODS: In this study, data was obtained from The Fukuoka Diabetes Registry, a multicentre prospective study designed to investigate the influence of modern treatments on the prognoses of patients with diabetes mellitus...

The poultry red mite (Dermanyssus gallinae) is a serious problem for the poultry industry worldwide. However, the relationship between the mite population and the damage that they cause is still unclear. In this study, the mite population in poultry houses was examined using an established trap method, and the risk of blood-stained eggs caused by the mites was assessed. Traps were placed once a week outside the egg channels and/or on the floor in two poultry farms in Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan, from April 2012 to July 2014...

Energy expenditure (EE) during walking includes energy costs to move and support the body and for respiration and circulation. We measured EE during walking under three different oxygen concentrations. Eleven healthy, young, male lowlanders walked on a treadmill at seven gait speeds (0.67-1.83 m s(-1)) on a level gradient under normobaric normoxia (room air, 21% O2), moderate hypoxia (15% O2), and severe hypoxia (11% O2). By comparing the hypoxia-induced elevation in heart rate (HR [bpm]), ventilation (VE [L min(-1)]) with the change in energy expenditure (EE [W]) at each speed, we were able to determine circulatory and respiratory costs...
