Distribution of serum C-reactive protein and its association with atherosclerotic risk factors in a Japanese population : Jichi Medical School Cohort Study.
The distribution of serum C-reactive protein (CRP) levels and their association with age, sex, and atherosclerotic risk factors were studied in a large Japanese population between 1992 and 1995. TheExpand
Sleep duration and mortality in Japan: the Jichi Medical School Cohort Study.
BACKGROUND Although sleep is one of the most important health-related factors, relationship between sleep duration and mortality has not been fully discussed. METHODS Study subjects were 11,325Expand
Sleep Duration and Incidence of Cardiovascular Events in a Japanese Population: The Jichi Medical School Cohort Study
Background Although sleep is one of the most important health-related factors, the relationship between sleep duration and the incidence of cardiovascular events has not been fully described. MethodsExpand
Prevalence and Determinants of Prehypertension in a Japanese General Population: The Jichi Medical School Cohort Study
It has been reported that subjects with prehypertension (pre-HT) (systolic blood pressure [SBP] 120–139 mmHg and/or diastolic blood pressure [DBP] 80–89 mmHg) have an increased risk of cardiovascularExpand
Characterization of direct antiglobulin test‐negative autoimmune hemolytic anemia: A study of 154 cases
Direct antiglobulin test (DAT)‐negative (DAT‐)autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA) is empirically thought to show the same clinical conditions as DAT‐positive (DAT+)AIHA, with the exception of anExpand
A contract-based training system for rural physicians: follow-up of Jichi Medical University graduates (1978-2006).
CONTEXT The number of studies on long-term effects of rural medical education programs is limited. Personal factors that are associated with long-term retention of physicians in rural areas areExpand
The RHD gene is highly detectable in RhD-negative Japanese donors.
Recent molecular studies on the Rh blood group system have shown that the Rh locus of each haploid RhD-positive chromosome is composed of two structural genes: RHD and RHCE, whereas the locus is madeExpand
The analysis of nucleotide substitutions, gaps, and recombination events between RHD and RHCE genes through complete sequencing.
We determined the entire nucleotide sequences of all introns within the RHD and RHCE genes by amplifying genomic DNA using long PCR methods. The RHD and RHCE genes were 57,295 and 57,831 bp inExpand
Characterization of the Duffy gene promoter: evidence for tissue-specific abolishment of expression in Fy(a-b-) of black individuals.
We have previously identified a novel first exon of Duffy gene and two inverse GATA motifs in the 600 bp 5' flanking region. The proximal GATA is positioned downstream from the start position ofExpand
Geographic distribution of primary care physicians in Japan and Britain.
Geographic distributions of primary care physicians in Japan and Britain were compared with each other. Regional variation in the number of primary care physicians per unit population was larger inExpand
