We have implemented an identity provider (IdP), which is defined by the Liberty Alliance on a mobile phone. We propose an authentication method, which uses this personal IdP as a security token to prevent password leakage. In our method, the personal IdP on a mobile phone issues a security assertion signed by a private key on a Universal Subscriber(More)
Several studies have shown that renal failure decreases CYP3A activity and that uremic toxins may play a role via transcriptional or translational modifications of cytochrome P450 (P450) enzymes and direct inhibition of P450-mediated metabolism. In this study, we evaluated the relationship between CYP3A activity (using plasma concentration of(More)
We investigated the relationship between plasma mid-regional pro-adrenomedullin (MR-proADM)-like immunoreactive substance (IS) level and clinical characteristics associated with renal failure or resistance to antihypertensive therapy in stable kidney transplant recipients. Forty-six Japanese kidney transplant recipients who underwent transplantation more(More)
—In this paper, we propose a new method to detect and recognize events robustly in a soccer game. Based on the players density and speed, the events are detected and recognized using Hidden Markov Model (HMM). However, it is difficult to detect " free kick " and " throw in " because these events occur anytime and anywhere. In a soccer game, some event(More)
In this paper, we propose a new method to track players using 3D particle filter guided by the time-situation graph in order to perform players tracking robust to occlusion in a soccer image sequence. In the conventional method using particle filter, there is a deficit that it is difficult to discover the players again once they are lost in an image(More)
BACKGROUND High-dose methotrexate (HDMTX) is used in the treatment of certain malignancies, including leptomeningeal metastases, systemic non-Hodgkin lymphoma, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, and osteosarcoma. High circulating levels of methotrexate can cause severe myelosuppression. The present study aimed to examine the differences in plasma MTX(More)
Cevimeline is a novel muscarinic acetylcholine receptor agonist currently being developed as a therapeutic agent for xerostomia. We examined the effects of cevimeline on salivary and plasma levels of substance-P- (SP-), calcitonin-gene-related-peptide- (CGRP-), and vasoactive-intestinal-polypeptide- (VIP-) like immunoreactive substances (ISs) in humans. An(More)
Cloud computing offers a rich set of services by pay per use basis. The features and technology offered by various providers created a great competitive market for the business. The various security issues are attracting attention, one of which is identity and privacy of the cloud user. Users are varied about the privacy of information which they have given(More)
