A. grandis >25) and measuring the size of larval parasites (3). Recently, PCR has been used for diagnosis in veterinary infections (2,7). For the patient in our study, molecular analysis identified human pentastomiasis by using a formalin-fixed microscope slide that had been stored for 7 years. A difference of 2 nt each was seen when the amplified(More)
Green algae are of great economic importance. Seaweed is consumed fresh or as seasoning in Japan. The commercial value is determined by quality, color, and flavor and is also strongly influenced by the production area. Our research, based on solid phase microextraction gas chromatography mass spectrometry (SPME-GC-MS), has revealed that volatile compounds(More)
We introduce the organization of the Todai Robot Project and discuss its achievements. The Todai Robot Project task focuses on benchmarking NLP systems for problem solving. This task encourages NLP-based systems to solve real high-school examinations. We describe the details of the method to manage question resources and their correct answers, answering(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the usefulness of one of IGRAs, QuantiFERON-TB Gold (QFT-G), in human immunodeficiency virus- (HIV-) infected patients with various CD4(+) T cell counts. METHODS The QFT-G assay was performed using QFT-G kits among 107 HIV-infected patients including 9 cases with active tuberculosis (TB). RESULTS In HIV-infected patients with(More)
A lightweight, human-in-the-loop evaluation scheme for machine translation (MT) systems is proposed. It extrinsically evaluates MT systems using human subjects' scores on second language ability test problems that are machine-translated to the subjects' native language. A large-scale experiment involving 320 subjects revealed that the context-unawareness of(More)
In the today's information society, where information access is ubiquitous and data is abundantly available, the importance of memorization is giving way to information gathering skills (search, filtering, summarization), and this focus should also be reflected in the educational process. In this study, we focus on the problem-solving skills of information(More)
Memantine is a non-competitive antagonist of the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor, and is an approved drug for the treatment of moderate-to-severe Alzheimer's disease. We identified a mouse strain with a naturally occurring mutation and an ataxic phenotype that presents with severe leg cramps. To investigate the phenotypes of these mutant mice, we(More)
