BACKGROUND Array-based detection of copy number variations (CNVs) is widely used for identifying disease-specific genetic variations. However, the accuracy of CNV detection is not sufficient and results differ depending on the detection programs used and their parameters. In this study, we evaluated five widely used CNV detection programs, Birdsuite (mainly(More)
Porosity and interconnectivity are important properties of calcium phosphate cements (CPCs) and bone-replacement materials. Porosity of CPCs can be achieved by adding polymeric biodegradable pore-generating particles (porogens), which can add porosity to the CPC and can also be used as a drug-delivery system. Porosity affects the mechanical properties of(More)
BACKGROUND Drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS) syndrome is a potentially life-threatening syndrome comprising severe skin eruption, fever, eosinophilia, lymphadenopathy, and involvement of internal organs. Here, we describe a case of DRESS syndrome caused by cross-reactivity between vancomycin and subsequent teicoplanin(More)
In this paper, the authors present the estimation of plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) market growth including the uncertainty of gasoline price fluctuation. The authors earlier have developed a model to estimate the market penetration of electric vehicles considering such factors as vehicle prices and availability of quick charging facilities. The(More)
Photovoltaic generation (PV) output varies depending on the time, weather, and season. In these days, batteries equipped in electric vehicles (EVs) can be utilized as substitutes for the storage systems, and are expected to use output of PV generation efficiently. In this paper, authors propose an energy management method with EV batteries to improve the(More)
