The FrameNet Project is producing a lexicon of English for both human use and NLP applications, based on the principles of Frame Semantics, in which sentences are described on the basis of predicators which evoke semantic frames and other constituents which express the participants (frame elements) in these frames. Our lexicon contains detailed information(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the clinical characteristics, 5-year survival, and prognostic factors of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the external and middle ear. METHODS A multi institutional study. Ninety five cases of patients from 10 institutions were reviewed on their age and sex distribution, initial complaints, stages, tumor locations, treatments, and(More)
Although epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is particularly important in the pathogenesis of head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCCs), conflicting data have been reported on the correlation between EGFR copy number and survival and the association between EGFR copy number and protein expression. Anatomical site of the tumour in HNSCCs may likely(More)
In this paper, we introduce the Spanish FrameNet Project which is creating an online lexical resource for Spanish, based on Frame Semantics and supported by corpus evidence. Spanish and English lexical units in the Emotion and Motion frames are compared and differences between the lexicalization patterns and constructions in both languages are described.(More)
A 14-year-old girl had massive bleeding from a Dieulafoy lesion of the ileum. A preoperative dynamic computed tomography scan detected the point of bleeding. Selective arteriography with embolization using microcoils could not stop the bleeding, but the microcoils were useful as markers of the location of the bleeding point. The position of the microcoils(More)
Penicillium herquei IFO 4674 is a filamentous fungus that produces a large amount of hydrolases for fibrous polysaccharides. We purified two beta-xylosidases, S1 and S2. The molecular masses of S1 and S2 determined by MALDI-TOF-MS were 103,700 and 37,460 Da. The optimum pHs of S1 and S2 were 4.0 and 6.5, respectively. By several kinds of alcohols,(More)

The aim of our study was to review the characteristics of these patients in northern Japan and to analyze their outcomes. METHODS The medical records of 94 patients who had been provided initial treatment(More)

OBJECTIVE The aim was to assess the association between the quality of preoperative glycemic control, intraoperative insulin sensitivity, and adverse events after cardiac surgery. DESIGN AND SETTING We conducted a prospective cohort study at a tertiary(More)
Four full-thickness skin wounds made in normal mice led to the significant increase in levels of nerve growth factor (NGF) in sera and in wounded skin tissues. Since sialoadenectomy before the wounds inhibited the rise in serum levels of NGF, the NGF may be released from the salivary gland into the blood stream after the wounds. In contrast, the fact that(More)
