Age-related changes in intraocular pressure in a large Japanese population: a cross-sectional and longitudinal study.
The authors found an inconsistency in the change in IOP against age between cross-sectional and longitudinal analysis and suspected that birth cohort differences in ocular characteristics influence IOP in the Japanese population. Expand
The relationship between age and intraocular pressure in a Japanese population: The influence of central corneal thickness
The IOP decreases with age in the Japanese, and CCT variation has practically no effect on the unique age-IOP relationship. Expand
Relationship between intraocular pressure and obesity in Japan.
- K. Mori, F. Ando, H. Nomura, Y. Sato, H. Shimokata
- International journal of epidemiology
- 1 August 2000
It is suggested that obesity is an independent risk factor for increase in intraocular pressure, and cross-sectional and longitudinal analyses showed a significant association between IOP and obesity in both cross-sectionally and longitudinal analysis. Expand
Refractive errors and factors associated with myopia in an adult Japanese population.
- N. Shimizu, H. Nomura, F. Ando, N. Niino, Y. Miyake, H. Shimokata
- Japanese journal of ophthalmology
The prevalence of myopia in a Japanese population was similar to that in other Asian surveys but higher than in black or white populations, and a significant association with education levels and socioeconomic factors. Expand
Association of polymorphisms of the estrogen receptor α gene with bone mineral density of the femoral neck in elderly Japanese women
- Yoshiji Yamada, F. Ando, N. Niino, S. Ohta, H. Shimokata
- Biology, Medicine
- Journal of Molecular Medicine
- 4 June 2002
The results suggest that the estrogen receptor α gene is a susceptibility locus for bone mass, especially for the femoral neck, in elderly Japanese women. Expand
Association of polymorphisms of the osteoprotegerin gene with bone mineral density in Japanese women but not men.

- Molecular genetics and metabolism
- 1 November 2003
The present results implicate the osteoprotegerin gene as a susceptibility locus for reduced BMD in Japanese women and were not associated with the 950T --> C or 245T --> G genotypes in men. Expand
Preproghrelin Leu72Met variant contributes to overweight in middle-aged men of a Japanese large cohort
Results suggest that the 72Met allele of the preproghrelin gene is a contributing factor for midlife weight change in men. Expand
Dietary patterns of antioxidant vitamin and carotenoid intake associated with bone mineral density: findings from post-menopausal Japanese female subjects
The findings suggest the combination of vitamin C and β-cryptoxanthin intakes might provide benefit to bone health in post-menopausal Japanese female subjects. Expand
Age-related change in contrast sensitivity among Japanese adults.
- H. Nomura, F. Ando, N. Niino, H. Shimokata, Y. Miyake
- Japanese journal of ophthalmology
- 1 May 2003
The results suggest that contrast sensitivity tests, especially at high frequencies, assess aspects of visual function that cannot be determined in the elderly population from visual acuity tests alone. Expand
Dietary Supplement Use by Community-living Population in Japan: Data from the National Institute for Longevity Sciences Longitudinal Study of Aging (NILS-LSA)
Dietary supplement use was especially prevalent in females, subjects who felt unhealthy, and subjects who were more careful of maintaining an appropriate weight, though the association was affected by the frequency of dietary supplement use. Expand
