OBJECTIVES: This 3-year cohort study was conducted to investigate the relation between insomnia and development of depression in male workers, and to clarify the association between the severity of insomnia and the onset of depression. METHODS: Self-administered questionnaire surveys on depression and insomnia were conducted on male workers for 3 years. Depression was assessed with the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-D), and insomnia was examined using the Athens Insomnia Scale (AIS)...

Spatiotemporal changes in cytosolic Ca(2+) concentration ([Ca(2+)]c) trigger a number of physiological functions in smooth muscle cells (SMCs). We previously imaged Ca(2+)-induced Ca(2+) release following membrane depolarization as local Ca(2+) transients, Ca(2+) hotspots, in subplasmalemmal regions. In this study, the physiological significance of mitochondria on local Ca(2+) signaling was examined. Cytosolic and mitochondrial Ca(2+) images following depolarization or action potentials were recorded in single SMCs from the guinea pig urinary bladder using a fast-scanning confocal fluorescent microscope...

BACKGROUND: Kawasaki disease (KD) is a type of systemic vasculitis of unknown etiology. Atypical Kawasaki disease is defined as that where there are signs and symptoms not corresponding to the classical criteria for this nosological entity. Children with atypical Kawasaki disease may present with acute abdominal symptoms, meningeal irritation, pneumonia or renal failure. CLINICAL CASES: We describe 4 children with ages ranging from 2 to 12 years who had atypical Kawasaki disease, with neurological and gastrointestinal symptoms as part of the systemic presentation of the disease...

Dendritic cell inhibitory receptor 3 (DCIR3) is a member of dendritic immuno-receptor family, of which protein expression has been unknown. We established a specific monoclonal antibody against mouse DCIR3 and investigated the expression of DCIR3 on immune cells of various immune organs. We found that DCIR3 was expressed on monocytes, but not on eosinophils and neutrophils. We also found the existence of a dichotomy in the levels of the expression of DCIR3 on monocytes in bone marrow, blood and spleen. Further investigation of the expression of several cell surface markers on DCIR3(High) cells and DCIR3(Low) cells revealed that DCIR3(High) cells were Ly-6C(-) CD43(High) CD11c(+) CD80(+) NK1...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Primary systemic vasculitides (PSV) encompass a subset of autoimmune diseases, characterized by inflammation of blood vessels. Atheromatosis and arteriosclerosis may be accelerated in several PSV and account for the increased rate of cardiovascular morbidity that some exhibit. We aimed to summarize recent studies reporting on the acceleration of atheromatosis and/or arteriosclerosis in each type of PSV, using state-of-the-art noninvasive vascular biomarkers with clinical value as end points...

Objective: To investigate the impacts of ash2 (absent, small, or homeotic)-like (Ash2L) and Jumonji domain-containing protein 3 (Jmjd3) on histone methylation of interferon-gamma(IFN-γ) gene and association with vascular damage of Kawasaki disease (KD) in acute phase. Methods: This study was performed among 36 children with KD in acute phase (KD group) and 28 age-matched health children (control group), who were treated or underwent physical examination in our hospital between February 2015 and June 2016. Patients were further divided into KD groups with or without coronary artery lesions (KD-CAL(+) , 16 cases; KD-CAL(-), 20 cases)...

Motivation: Inappropriate disclosure of human genomes may put the privacy of study subjects and of their family members at risk. Existing privacy-preserving mechanisms for Genome-Wide Association Studies (GWAS) mainly focus on protecting individual information in case-control studies. Protecting privacy in family-based studies is more difficult. The transmission disequilibrium test (TDT) is a powerful family-based association test employed in many rare disease studies. It gathers information about families (most frequently involving parents, affected children and their siblings)...

We report a rare case of type A dissection involving a right-sided aortic arch with an aberrant left subclavian artery originating from Kommerell's diverticulum in a 76-year-old woman. Endovascular treatment for Kommerell's diverticulum including intimal tear of the dissection was performed. At the 5-year follow-up, the patient was doing well, with no endoleak or dilatation of the Kommerell's diverticulum.

A 73-year-old female was admitted to our hospital with abdominal pain and diarrhea. Computed tomography detected distension of the small intestine. A palmar erythema, multiple oral ulcers, and desquamation of the fingers appeared after hospitalization. Small-bowel endoscopic images showed multiple ulcers. We attributed this case to infection with Yersinia pseudotuberculosis based on the changes in Y. pseudotuberculosis antibody titers throughout the course of the illness. This report is valuable, as it illustrates the endoscopic characteristics of a Y...

OBJECTIVE: TDF increases the risk of kidney tubular dysfunction (KTD). This study was conducted to elucidate whether KTD persists after discontinuation of TDF. DESIGN: A prospective cross-sectional study which enrolled 941 HIV-1-infected patients. METHODS: KTD was predefined as the presence of at least two abnormalities among the five tubular markers (fractional excretion of phosphate, fractional excretion of uric acid, β2-microglobulinuria, N-acetyl-β-D-glucosaminidase, non-diabetic glycosuria)...

OBJECTIVE A convergence of clinical research suggests that the temporal pole (TP) plays an important and potentially underappreciated role in the genesis and propagation of seizures in temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). Understanding its role is becoming increasingly important because selective resections for medically intractable TLE spare temporopolar cortex (TPC). The purpose of this study was to characterize the role of the TPC in TLE after using dense electrocorticography (ECoG) recordings in patients undergoing invasive monitoring for medically intractable TLE...

The paper describes a clinical case of gigantic aneurysm of one of the coronary arteries. It considers the morphological and immunohistochemical characteristics of the wall of the blood vessel with the detected signs of coronaritis. The authors have determined that Kawasaki disease could be retrospectively diagnosed in early childhood.

INTRODUCTION: Coronary artery aneurysms (CAA) are rare. We present our experience with the surgical treatment of patients with CAAs. METHODS: Between March 2000 and October 2016, 15 patients with CAA underwent surgery. RESULTS: Mean age of patients was 60 ± 16 years and 47% (n = 7) were male. Kawasaki syndrome was present in two (13%) patients and 7% (n = 1) patients had Marfan syndrome. Isolated CAAs were found in 73% (n = 11) and involvement of multiple vessels was present in 27% (n = 4) of patients...

BACKGROUND: Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) is the treatment of choice in Kawasaki disease (KD). IVIG is used to prevent cardiovascular complications related to KD. However, a proportion of KD patients have persistent fever after IVIG treatment and are defined as IVIG resistant. METHODS AND RESULTS: To develop a risk scoring system based on genetic markers to predict IVIG responsiveness in KD patients, a total of 150 KD patients (126 IVIG responders and 24 IVIG nonresponders) were recruited for this study...

Background: 24-h urine collection is regarded as the "gold standard" for monitoring sodium intake at the population level, but ensuring high quality urine samples is difficult to achieve. The Kawasaki, International Study of Sodium, Potassium, and Blood Pressure (INTERSALT) and Tanaka methods have been used to estimate 24-h urinary sodium excretion from spot urine samples in some countries, but few studies have been performed to compare and validate these methods in the Chinese population. Objective: To compare and validate the Kawasaki, INTERSALT and Tanaka formulas in predicting 24-h urinary sodium excretion using spot urine samples in 365 high-risk elder patients of strokefrom the rural areas of Shaanxi province...

Coronary arterial abnormalities are uncommon findings in children that have profound clinical implications. Although anomalies of the coronary origins are well described, there are many other disease processes that affect the coronary arteries. Immune system-mediated diseases (eg, Kawasaki disease, polyarteritis nodosa, and other vasculiditides) can result in coronary arterial aneurysms, strictures, and abnormal tapering of the vessels. Because findings at imaging are an important component of diagnosis in these diseases, the radiologist's understanding of them is essential...
