Estrogenic activity was determined in sediments collected from Tokyo Bay. Sampling was performed at five stations including the site near the sewage treatment plant. The most estrogenic sediment collected near the sewage treatment plant was fractionated into ten fractions using normal-phase high-performance liquid chromatography. Chemical analysis was(More)
We determined associations between bone health and the quantity and quality of habitual physical activity in a cohort of 172 free-living Japanese aged 65–83 years (76 men, 96 women). The number of steps taken and the intensity of physical activity were measured every 4 s throughout each 24-h period for 1 year, using a specially adapted accelerometer that(More)
A tight fixation between bone and implant materials is of great importance for a successful outcome of procedures such as total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and total hip arthroplasty (THA). Surface modification of titanium metal and titanium alloy is one of the attractive methods to improve the biological affinity of orthopedic prostheses. Recent studies(More)
In recent clinical studies, contamination of the inner parts of dental implants through bacterial penetration along the implant components has been observed. The aim of the present in-vitro study was to investigate leakage of Fusobacterium nucleatum through the interface between implants and premachined or cast abutments. Both premachined (n=10) and cast(More)
Multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) are one of natural nano-size bricks. The MWNTs are conductive narrow wires, and would be useful materials for a component of nano-electronics. By building up the MWNT bricks, nano-scale device structures, which cannot be fabricated from three dimensional bulk materials, can be constructed. For the application of carbon(More)
