We propose a method for detecting the generation of garbage cells by analyzing a source text written in a functional programming language which uses ordinary linked lists to implement list-type values. For a subexpression such as <italic>F</italic>(<italic>G</italic>( . . . )) in a program where the function values of <italic>F</italic> and(More)
A 61-year-old Japanese woman suffered from a small, painful, subcutaneous nodule on the sole of her foot that was 10 mm across in diameter during pegylated interferon (PEG IFN) and ribavirin (RBV) combination therapy for chronic hepatitis C. Skin biopsy revealed multiple non-caseating granulomas composed of epithelioid histiocytes with multinucleate giant(More)
Machine-to-machine (M2M) communication with an M2M gateway is expected to spread rapidly with the penetration of smart devices and sensors. As increasing the number of connected devices leads to repetitive manual configuration on an M2M gateway, one of the key factors in M2M communication is ease in configuration for end-users. In this paper, a new(More)
TNF-related apoptosis-including ligand/Apo2 (TRAIL)-mediated immunotherapy is an attractive anti-tumor modality with high tumor specificity. In order to improve its therapeutic efficacy, we further need to implement a novel maneuver for sensitization of malignant cells to TRAIL. Bortezomib (BTZ), a novel anti-myeloma (MM) agent, potently induces endoplasmic(More)
We determined the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of various antimicrobial agents against 108 strains of Streptococcus pneumoniae and 144 strains of Haemophilus influenzae isolated from respiratory organs in the First Department of Internal Medicine, Shinshu University, and affiliated hospitals between January 2000 and February 2001. The following(More)
A 56-year-old male presented with pathological rib fracture and lumbago in 2006. He was diagnosed with multiple myeloma (IgG-lambda type, D&S stage IIIA, ISS 2). He was treated with VAD therapy and tandem auto-PBSCT, and achieved CR in 2007. He was followed without chemotherapy, but relapsed in 2009. He received lenalidomide plus dexamethasone and(More)
