Seasonal changes in objectively measured sedentary behavior and physical activity in Japanese primary school children

Background The recent prevalence of obesity in Japanese children is much higher compared to 1980. The present study compared daily sedentary behavior (SB) and physical activity (PA) between the school year and summer vacation in Japanese primary school children. Methods Participants were 98 Japanese boys (8.9 ± 1.8 years at baseline) and 111 girls (9.1 ± 1.8 years). SB and PA...

Fatal pneumonia caused by Penicillium digitatum: a case report

Background Penicillium species are among the most common fungi present in the environment and are usually considered non-pathogenic to humans. However, in immunocompromised hosts they can be virulent pathogens and can cause death. Penicillium digitatum is a plant pathogen that commonly causes a postharvest fungal disease of citrus called green mould; it very rarely causes...

Association between objectively evaluated physical activity and sedentary behavior and screen time in primary school children

Background Even when meeting guidelines for physical activity (PA), considerable sedentary time may be included. This study in primary school children investigated the relationships between objectively evaluated sedentary and PA times at different intensities using triaxial accelerometry that discriminated between ambulatory and non-ambulatory PA. The relationships between...

A novel combination of suicide gene therapy and histone deacetylase inhibitor for treatment of malignant melanoma

One major problem associated with application of gene therapy to treatment of tumors is poor transgene expression. Although suicide gene therapy with the herpes simplex virus-thymidine kinase gene (HSV-tk) followed by administration of ganciclovir (GCV) was effective in the treatment of melanoma, it was still difficult to induce complete remission to cancer. A novel histone...

Systemic CD8+ T Cell-Mediated Tumoricidal Effects by Intratumoral Treatment of Oncolytic Herpes Simplex Virus with the Agonistic Monoclonal Antibody for Murine Glucocorticoid-Induced Tumor Necrosis Factor Receptor

Oncolytic virotherapy combined with immunomodulators is a novel noninvasive strategy for cancer treatment. In this study, we examined the tumoricidal effects of oncolytic HF10, a naturally occurring mutant of herpes simplex virus type-1, combined with an agonistic DTA-1 monoclonal antibody specific for the glucocorticoid-induced tumor necrosis factor receptor. Two murine tumor...

Hydrocele of the canal of Nuck: a case report with magnetic resonance hydrography findings

Hydrocele of the canal of Nuck, also called the “female hydrocele,” is a rare developmental disorder in females. This entity is now believed to be more common now in comparison with previous reports; however, it is still an unfamiliar problem for physicians. The processus vaginalis accompanies the round ligament through the inguinal canal into the labium majus. This evagination...
