We report a case of leukemoid reaction (LR) complicating renal abscess caused by Morganella morganii infection in an 80-year-old man. On administration, laboratory tests revealed white blood cell count of 76160 /microL and C reactive protein 3.09 mg/dL. Although chronic myeloid leukemia was suspected, bcr/abl fusion transcript was not observed. Contrast(More)
Until recently, predicted values of vital capacity (VC) and forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) have been calculated with Baldwin's equation (VC-B) and Berglund's equation (FEV1-B) respectively, in Japan. Due to several problems using these equations, new prediction equations of VC (VC-J) and FEV1 (FEV1-J), which were created using data from(More)
We report a case in which gefitinib was effective in reducing the amount of ascites. A 61-year-old man with peritonitis carcinomatosa due to metastasis from pulmonary adenocarcinoma was admitted to our hospital. Various chemotherapies were not effective for controlling his ascites. Therefore, we orally delivered gefitinib at a dose of 250 mg/day. Three days(More)
A problem of generating and manipulating characters, words and sentences is studied. First, characters are obtained as the trace of cross-sectional area between a virtual writing plane and a virtual writing device modeled by a circular cone which is moving in three dimensional space. Such a motion is designed as a sum of weighted and time-shifted B-spline(More)
To solve recent pressing issues regarding satisfying numerous video codec standards and supporting "full-high-definition" (full-HD) (i.e., 1920 pixels by 1080 lines) video on different consumer devices, a multi-standard CODEC IP based on a heterogeneous multiprocessor architecture was developed. To achieve satisfactory performance with low power(More)
We describe two patients who developed progressive ascending paralysis associated with Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) during late pregnancy. A 25-year-old woman in the 30th week of gestation (GW) developed diarrhea followed by GBS and weakness of the bilateral facial muscles. Serum IgM antibody titers against cytomegalovirus (CMV) were high. Respiratory(More)
