Comparison of the Effects of Carperitide and Tolvaptan on Patients with Left Ventricular Dysfunction: A Two-Center Retrospective Study

In patients with left ventricular (LV) dysfunction, diuretics can reduce blood pressure and lead to electrolyte abnormalities. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of tolvaptan (T group) and carperitide (C group) in these patients. Sixty-one consecutive patients admitted to the Iwate Prefectural Kuji Hospital or the Emergency Center of the Iwate Medical University...

Clinical Performance of a New Soluble CD14-Subtype Immunochromatographic Test for Whole Blood Compared with Chemiluminescent Enzyme Immunoassay: Use of Quantitative Soluble CD14-Subtype Immunochromatographic Tests for the Diagnosis of Sepsis

We previously reported that a soluble CD14-subtype (sCD14-ST) immunochromatographic test (ICT) for plasma is more convenient than chemiluminescent enzyme immunoassay (CLEIA), but plasma separation makes bedside measurements difficult. We developed a new sCD14-ST ICT for whole blood and investigated whether quantitative determinations of sCD14-ST by ICT were useful for diagnosing...

Construction of a scoring system for predicting the risk of severe gastrointestinal involvement in Henoch-Schönlein Purpura

Objective To evaluate the parameters associated with significant gastrointestinal (GI) involvement in Henoch-Schönlein Purpura (HSP), and construct a scoring system for the identification of patients at high risk of gross blood in stools. Study design Data for HSP patients hospitalized at each of seven institutes were retrospectively analyzed. Patients were divided into four...

Synthesis of deoxyoligonucteotides containing 7-deazaadenine: recognition and cleavage by restriction endonuclease Bgl II and Sau 3AI (Nucleosides and Nucleotides Part 551)

Deoxydecanucleotides having a recognition sequence of Bgl II and Sau 3AI, and their 7-deazaadenine analogs were synthesized. The decanucleotides containing 7-deazaadenine in place of adenine were partially resistant to the hydrolysis by Sau 3AI and strongly resistant to that by Bgl II. A new hypothesis on the mode of recognition and cleavage of specific nucleotide sequences by...

Achievements of KEKB

The machine commissioning of KEKB started in December 1998 and its operation was terminated at the end of June 2010 to upgrade KEKB to SuperKEKB. In this paper, we summarize the history of KEKB and show the achievements made there.
