A case of Epstein-Barr virus–associated hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis with severe cardiac complications

Background Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is a life threatening hematological disorder associated with severe systemic inflammation caused by an uncontrolled and ineffective immune response resulting in cytokine storm. Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is the most common infectious agent in patients with the viral-associated HLH. Limited numbers of cases with cardiac...

Re-biopsy by endobronchial ultrasound procedures for mutation analysis of non-small cell lung cancer after EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitor treatment

Background Re-biopsy for resistant non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) after treatment with epidermal growth factor receptor-tyrosine kinase inhibitors (EGFR-TKIs) is important for selection of better therapy, but there have been no reports about the utility of endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS)-guided procedures for such purpose. The aim of this study was to evaluate the utility of...

Predominant formation of aromatic aldehyde and acid from a dimeric β-O-4-type lignin model compound under hydrogen peroxide bleaching conditions with high pH levels

 Akiyama Tomoya Yokoyama Yuji Matsumoto When a dimeric non-phenolic β-O-4-type lignin model compound, 2-(2-methoxyphenoxy)-1-(3,4dimethoxyphenyl)propane-1,3-diol (veratrylglycerol-βguaiacyl ether (VG)), was

On the properties of von Neumann kernels for link analysis

We study the effectiveness of Kandola et al.’s von Neumann kernels as a link analysis measure. We show that von Neumann kernels subsume Kleinberg’s HITS importance at the limit of their parameter range. Because they reduce to co-citation relatedness at the other end of the parameter, von Neumann kernels give us a spectrum of link analysis measures between the two established...

Oxygen free radicals and calcium homeostasis in the heart

Many experiments have been done to clarify the effects of oxygen free radicals on Ca2+ homeostasis in the hearts. A burst of oxygen free radicals occurs immediately after reperfusion, but we have to be reminded that the exact levels of oxygen free radicals in the hearts are yet unknown in both physiological and pathophysiological conditions. Therefore, we should give careful...

Diagnostic Utility of Pleural Fluid Cell Block versus Pleural Biopsy Collected by Flex-Rigid Pleuroscopy for Malignant Pleural Disease: A Single Center Retrospective Analysis

Background Some trials recently demonstrated the benefit of targeted treatment for malignant disease; therefore, adequate tissues are needed to detect the targeted gene. Pleural biopsy using flex-rigid pleuroscopy and pleural effusion cell block analysis are both useful for diagnosis of malignancy and obtaining adequate samples. The purpose of our study was to compare the...

DISC1 (Disrupted-in-Schizophrenia-1) Regulates Differentiation of Oligodendrocytes

Disrupted-in-schizophrenia 1 (DISC1) is a gene disrupted by a translocation, t(1;11) (q42.1;q14.3), that segregates with major psychiatric disorders, including schizophrenia, recurrent major depression and bipolar affective disorder, in a Scottish family. Here we report that mammalian DISC1 endogenously expressed in oligodendroglial lineage cells negatively regulates...

Motion-blur-free video shooting system based on frame-by-frame intermittent tracking

In this paper, a concept of frame-by-frame intermittent tracking to achieve motion-blur-free and high-brightness images when video shooting fast moving scenes is proposed. In our tracking concept, two control methods are applied alternately at hundreds of hertz, according to the open or closed shutter state of the camera. When the shutter is open, the target’s speed in images is...

Endoscope-assisted resection of cavernous angioma at the foramen of Monro: a case report

Introduction Intraventricular cavernous angiomas are rare pathological entities, and those located at the foramen of Monro are even rarer. We herein present a case of cavernous angioma at the foramen of Monro that was successfully treated by neuroendoscope-assisted surgical removal, and review the relevant literature. Case presentation A 65-year-old woman had experienced headache...
