The singular points of fingerprints, namely, core and delta, are important referential points for the classification of fingerprints. Several conventional approaches such as the Poincare index method have been proposed; however, these approaches cannot achieve the reliable detection of poor-quality fingerprints. In this paper, we propose a new core and(More)
We previously demonstrated that outcome of pediatric 11q23/MLL-rearranged AML depends on the translocation partner (TP). In this multicenter international study on 733 children with 11q23/MLL-rearranged AML, we further analyzed which additional cytogenetic aberrations (ACA) had prognostic significance. ACAs occurred in 344 (47%) of 733 and were associated(More)
Infants with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and a germline MLL gene are highly curable with use of chemotherapy alone: results from the Japan Infant Leukemia Study Group Although infants with acute lymphoblas-tic leukemia (ALL) and a germline MLL gene have a better prognosis than comparable infants with a rearranged MLL gene, their optimal therapy is(More)
CCAAT/enhancer-binding protein alpha (CEBPA) mutations are a favorable prognostic factor in adult acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients; however, few studies have examined their significance in pediatric AML patients. Here we examined the CEBPA mutation status and clinical outcomes of pediatric AML patients treated in the AML-05 study. We found that 47(More)
Acute myeloid leukemia with t(6;9)(p22;q34) is listed as a distinct entity in the 2008 World Health Organization classification, but little is known about the clinical implications of t(6;9)-positive myeloid leukemia in children. This international multicenter study presents the clinical and genetic characteristics of 62 pediatric patients with(More)
BACKGROUND Myeloid/NK cell precursor acute leukemia (MNKL) is a rare type of leukemia, and ocular complications have not previously been reported. We now report a patient with MNKL who developed intraocular infiltrates during follow-up. METHODS AND RESULTS A 13-year-old boy diagnosed with MNKL developed left eye pain 3 months after starting treatment.(More)
The Ewing sarcoma breakpoint region 1 (EWSR1) gene is known to fuse with various partner genes to promote the development of the Ewing sarcoma family of tumors and other sarcomas. In contrast, the association of EWSR1 chimeric fusion genes with leukemia has rarely been reported. We identified a novel EWSR1-associated chimeric fusion gene in a patient with(More)
The ecotropic viral integration site-1 gene (EVI1) encodes a zinc finger protein that functions as a transcrip-tional regulator of hematopoietic stem cell self-renewal and long-term multilineage repopulating activity. 1,2 The mixed lineage leukemia gene (MLL) rearrangements [i.e. t(11q23)] occur at high frequency in pediatric acute myeloid leukemia (AML)(More)

Tetris is one of the most famous tile-matching video games, and has been used as a test bed for artificial intelligence techniques such as machine learning. Many games have been derived from such early tile-matching games, in this paper we discuss how to develop AI players of "PuyoPuyo". PuyoPuyo is a popular two-player game, and where the main point is to(More)
