BACKGROUND & AIMS: The aim of this study was to examine differences in the validity of a visual estimation method for determining patients' meal intake between various meal types and supplied food items in hospitals and to find factors influencing the validity of a visual estimation method. METHODS: There are two procedures by which we obtained the information on dietary intake of the patients in these hospitals. These are both by visual assessment from the meal trays at the time of their clearing, by the attending nursing staff and by weighing conducted by researchers...

Density Functional Theory (DFT) is a successful and well-established theory for the study of the structure of simple and complex fluids at equilibrium. The theory has been generalized to dynamical situations when the underlying dynamics is diffusive as in, for example, colloidal systems. However, there is no such a clear foundation for Dynamic DFT (DDFT) for the case of simple fluids in contact with solid walls. In this work, we derive DDFT for simple fluids by including not only the mass density field but also the momentum density field of the fluid...

The pathogenesis of Kawasaki disease (KD) remains unknown and there is accumulating evidence for the importance of the innate immune system in initiating and mediating the host inflammatory response. We compared innate immune responses in KD and toxic shock syndrome (TSS) participants more than two years after their acute illness with control participants to investigate differences in their immune phenotype. Toxic shock syndrome shares many clinical features with KD; by including both disease groups we endeavoured to explore changes in innate immune responses following acute inflammatory illnesses more broadly...

PURPOSE: The purposes of this study were to investigate pulmonary vein cross-sectional orifice area (PV-CSOA) using intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) and to determine its association with atrial fibrillation (AF) recurrence after radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA). METHODS: We studied 77 patients undergoing initial RFCA for AF (55 paroxysmal and 22 persistent AF patients, mean age 61 ± 12 years, 59 men). The PV-CSOA was measured in each patient and expressed as an index divided by the body surface area-left superior (LSPV-CSOA), left inferior (LIPV-CSOA), right superior (RSPV-CSOA), and right inferior (RIPV-CSOA)...

BACKGROUND: Kawasaki disease (KD) is a self-limited acute systemic vasculitis of unknown aetiology that predominantly affects infants and young children eventually associated with immunological abnormalities. Coeliac disease (CD) is an inflammatory autoimmune disease characterised by a permanent gluten intolerance, which affects genetically susceptible individuals of any age group, and can cause intestinal and systemic symptoms. Association of CD with KD has been previously described in a single study that disclosed a surprisingly high prevalence of CD in children with a history of KD...

Cisplatin (CDDP) and doxorubicin (DOX) are chemotherapeutic drugs that trigger apoptosis by inducing DNA-damage. A previous study using breast cancer cells demonstrated the negative feedback modulation of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and receptor tyrosine-protein kinase erbB-2 (ErbB2) via extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK)-mediated phosphorylation of conserved Thr-669 and Thr-677 residues, respectively, in the juxtamembrane domain. In addition, CDDP has been identified to cause negative feedback inhibition of activated EGFR in lung cancer cells...

Objective The purpose of this study was to clarify the clinical features of ischemic patients for whom cigarette smoking was the sole risk factor for ischemic stroke. Methods Among the 1,329 patients (male, n=833; female, n=496) with acute ischemic stroke who were admitted to our hospital between April 2005 and September 2016, 346 (26%) were smokers (male, n=308 [36.9%]; female, 38 [7.6%]). In 42 (3.1%; male, n=41; female, n=1) cases, cigarette smoking was considered to be the sole risk factor for ischemic stroke...

Previously, we reported that ε-poly-L-lysine (25 - 35 residues) significantly promoted a glucose oxidase enzymatic (GOx) reaction using ferricyanide ion as the oxidant, and that the effect was due to the formation of a polyion complex between anionic GOx and protonated (polycationic) ε-poly-L-lysine. Here, we show that streptothricins (STs), which have an L-β-lysine oligomer (1 - 7 residues) and possess only several positive charges at most, also effectively promote the GOx enzymatic reaction. Interestingly, the promotion effect increased with the size of the lysine oligomer of STs, suggesting that the ionic valence is a key factor determining the degree of the promotion effect...

Superior mesenteric artery syndrome (SMAS) is a relatively rare disease that involves bowel obstruction symptoms, such as vomiting and gastric distension, owing to the compression of the third portion of the duodenum from the front by the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) and from the rear by the abdominal aorta and the spine. SMAS is diagnosed on the basis of an upper gastrointestinal examination series indicating the obstruction of the third portion of the duodenum or a computed tomography scan indicating the narrowing of the branch angle between the aorta and the SMA (i...

BACKGROUND: In patients with long QT syndrome (LQTS), a sudden increase in heart rate can cause T-wave alternans (TWA) with beat-to-beat alternating polarity of T wave. We hypothesized that LQTS patients at a high risk of Torsade de Pointes (TdP) may exhibit momentary atrial or sinoatrial premature beat-induced T-wave inversion (APB-TWI). OBJECTIVE: To assess the association of APB-TWI with TdP history and with microvolt TWA. METHODS: 24-h continuous 12-lead electrocardiograms (ECGs) were recorded in 18 healthy subjects and 39 consecutive patients with LQTS types 1 (n=21), 2 (n=4), 3 (n=4), and unidentified (n=10)...

Fc-receptors for immunoglobulin G (FcγRs) mediate a variety of effector and regulatory mechanisms in the immune system. N-glycosylation of FcγRs critically affects their functions which is well exemplified by antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC) and phagocytosis mediated by homologous FcγRIIIa and FcγRIIIb, respectively. Although several reports describe N-glycosylation profiles of recombinant FcγRIII glycoproteins, much remains unknown regarding their native glycoforms. Here we performed site-specific N-glycosylation profiling of a soluble form of FcγRIIIb purified from human serum based on mass spectrometric analysis...

Coronary arteritis in Kawasaki disease can lead to serious complications such myocardial infarction and sudden death. The identification of coronary manifestations with a method that is minimally invasive and of low radiation exposure is therefore important in paediatric patients with Kawasaki disease. Coronary CT angiography can be an attractive alternative to invasive coronary angiography. This paper describes imaging techniques for coronary CT angiography in pediatric patients and demonstrates the spectrum of cardiovascular manifestations in patients with Kawasaki disease...
