Oxidative stress is induced under diabetic conditions and possibly causes various forms of tissue damage in patients with diabetes. Recently, it has become aware that susceptibility of pancreatic beta-cells to oxidative stress contributes to the progressive deterioration of beta-cell function in type 2 diabetes. A hypoglycemic sulfonylurea, gliclazide, is(More)
Testing of concurrent programs is much more difficult than that of sequential programs. A concurrent program behaves nondeterministically, that is, the program may produce different results with the same input data according to execution timings of the program. In testing of concurrent programs, test data must specify not only input data but also sequences(More)
Testing of programs is important to increase reliability of the programs. Coverage is a ratio of the number of worked test-events to all test-events, and it is used as a metric of testing sufficiency and reliability. The test-events are defined by a testing criterion. Some testing criteria are proposed for evaluating testing sufficiency of sequential(More)
Digital audio devices have been changing music entertainment environment. Those devices are bundled with music jukebox software, such as Apple's iTunes, Sony's CONNECT player.

A neonate was diagnosed as having SCID from his umbilical cord blood cells immediately after birth because his older brother had died of SCID eight months earlier. One locus-mismatched unrelated umbilical cord blood cell transplantation without conditioning was performed at the age of 30 days. The CD3-positive cells were detected on day 14(More)
We compared the results of two bacterial identification methods: 1) a traditional method based on phenotypic identification of the causative organism using gram-staining, culture and biochemical markers and 2) matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS). A total of 111 isolates, including 107 strains of common(More)
