We compared physiological and perceptual responses, and stride characteristics while walking backward in water with those of walking forward in water. Eight males walked on an underwater treadmill, immersed to their xiphoid process level. Oxygen uptake ((.)V(O2)), respiratory exchange ratio (R), heart rate (HR), minute ventilation ((.)V(E)), blood lactate(More)
Six cases of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) were evaluated. In four cases, diagnosis and steroid therapy were delayed, which resulted in irreversible pulmonary dysfunction. The important points for early diagnosis were: (1) Differentiation from pulmonary tuberculosis, (2) the presence of bronchial asthma was not essential for diagnosis, and(More)
A 46-year-old male tuberculosis patient developed acute renal failure and liver dysfunction following the oral administration of rifampicin (RFP). The mechanism of the reaction was examined by means of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). 3-formylrifamycin-SV (Formylrifamycin), which is one of RFP metabolites, was conjugated to human serum albumin.(More)
Asthmatic symptoms are worsened after drinking small amounts of alcoholic beverages in Japanese asthmatic patients. Our previous results showed that the ingestion of pure ethanol caused a fall in FEV1.0 in about half of the Japanese asthmatics we studied. We studied the inhibitory effects of pretreatment with three kinds of anti-asthmatic agents on(More)
We investigated the clinical and laboratory data of 215 hospitalized patients (mean age were 76.9 +/- 12.1) to analyze both the characteristics of senile UTI and the influence of the way of urination. UTI was present in 121 of 1897 patients (6.4%), 95 of whom (78.5%) were female. Comparison of the parameters between non-infected and infected patients were(More)
A 15-year-old man with food-dependent exercise-induced anaphylaxis is reported. The patient had begun to run 4 hours after he had lunch on fried shrimps. When running about 2000 m, he suffered from general cutaneous erythema with itching, urticaria, angioedema of face and dyspnea. He had experienced the similar episodes associated with postprandial exercise(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare metabolic costs, rating of perceived exertion (RPE), and stride frequency during backward walking in water and on land. The walking speeds in water were set to be half of those on land. There was no significant difference in metabolic costs and RPE between backward walking in water with a current and on land, at slow(More)
In 11 cases of pectoralis major transfer, tracking movement was performed in the scapular and sagittal planes for both shoulder joints to compare the tracking movement ability of the operated shoulder and the unoperated shoulder. At the same time, electromyograms were taken of the upper trapezius, the middle deltoideus, the pectoralis major and the(More)
