A randomized, double-blind, prospective, 24-week clinical trial was performed to evaluate the effects of a combinative agent, Maxmarvil, of calcitriol (0.5 μg) and alendronate (5 mg) on bone metabolism in postmenopausal women. A total of 217 postmenopausal women with osteoporosis were enrolled; 199 patients were randomly assigned to one of two treatment(More)
We utilized a discrete dynamic Bayesian network (dDBN) approach (Burge, J., Lane, T., Link, H., Qiu, S., Clark, V.P., 2007. Discrete dynamic Bayesian network analysis of fMRI data. Hum Brain Mapp.) to determine differences in brain regions between patients with schizophrenia and healthy controls on a measure of effective connectivity, termed the approximate(More)
In this transcultural study of schizophrenic delusions among patients in Seoul, Shanghai and Taipei, we discovered that both the frequency and content of delusions differed among the three groups; and that these differences could perhaps be explained by varying sociocultural and political situations. Delusional themes that are sensitive to sociocultural or(More)
Two genes (TaLTP1 and TaLTP2) encoding lipid transfer proteins (LTPs) were isolated from a cDNA library constructed from leaf tissue harvested from 4-week-old seedlings of a wheat-rye near-isogenic line (NIL) involving a translocation of rye chromosome 2RL with wheat 2BS. The spatial and temporal patterns of expression of TaLTP1 and TaLTP2 were examined by(More)
We study the synchronization phenomena in a system of globally coupled oscillators with time delay in the coupling. The self-consistency equations for the order parameter are derived, which depend explicitly on the amount of delay. Analysis of these equations reveals that the system in general exhibits discontinuous transitions in addition to the usual(More)
We have studied the Cabibbo-suppressed decay mode D0 → K+K−π0 using a Dalitz plot technique and find the strong phase difference δD ≡ δK∗−K+ − δK∗+K− = 332◦ ± 8◦ ± 11◦ and relative amplitude rD ≡ aK∗−K+ / aK∗+K− = 0.52 ± 0.05 ± 0.04. This measurement indicates significant destructive interference between D0 → K+(K−π0)K∗− and D0 → K−(K+π0)K∗+ in the Dalitz(More)
Acupuncture is useful in treating the nausea and vomiting related to chemotherapy, adult postoperative surgery pain and postoperative dental pain. We obtained single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) brain perfusion images of six patients with middle cerebral artery occlusion obtained before and after acupuncture and compared the changes in(More)
Recently, the truncated hemoglobin gene (trHb) was discovered in plant species, however, its role has not yet been determined. In this study, the gene expression of wheat trHb (TatrHb) was analyzed under various biotic and abiotic stresses. TatrHb transcript levels increased in NaCl-treated leaves and gibberellic acid (GA3)-treated roots. In addition,(More)
Dialyzed paper pulp waste liquor added at 20% (v/v) basal medium improved the production of indole alkaloid, catha-ranthine, from Catharanthine roseus, yielding 51 μ:g/cell as against 42 μg/cell in non-supplemented medium. 30-40% (v/v) of catharanthine was secreted out of the cells, showing that the change of the ratio of inner to outer concentrations was(More)
Community detection has been one of the major topics in complex network research. Recently, several greedy algorithms for networks of millions of nodes have been proposed, but one of their limitations is inconsistency of outcomes [1]. Kwak et al. propose an iterative reinforcing approach to eliminate inconsistency in detected communities. In this paper we(More)
