An interactive automatic procedure for detection of malaria from microscope blood images is presented. The user is required to select image from data set and the algorithm detects whether the blood is infected with malaria or not automatically. This method will help in reducing the time taken for diagnosis and the chance for human errors. A general(More)
BACKGROUND In patients with chronic renal failure undergoing hemodialysis (HD), silent cerebral infarctions (SCI) are associated with high mortality. Levels of interleukin-6 (IL-6) increase with renal dysfunction and may be a novel predictor for cerebrovascular events. We tested the hypothesis that increased IL-6 levels correlate with the occurrence of SCI(More)
Human T-cell leukaemia virus type I (HTLV-I) is a retrovirus that causes adult T-cell leukaemia (ATL). HTLV-I has existed in Japanese people for thousands of years. In order to prevent an epidemic of HTLV-I, it is important to explain the infection system by a mathematical approach. By considering the main infection routes in Japan, that is: (i)(More)
A 71-year-old man suffering from epigastric discomfort and dizziness was admitted to our hospital and diagnosed with advanced gastric cancer with bulky lymph node metastases and liver metastasis. We thought a complete resection would be difficult, so he was treated with neo-adjuvant immunochemotherapy in combination with S-1 80 mg/m2 (2 weeks administration(More)
The physicochemical properties (pH and osmolarity), ingredients, and impurities containing in compound glycyrrhizin injections (eight items) marketed in China were compared with those in bland-name drug (Stronger Neo-Minophagen C injection). Glycyrrhizin (GZ), glycine (Gly), and l-cysteine (CysH) as the ingredients, moreover, glycyrrhetinic acid (GA),(More)
This paper reports that in parallel Monte-Carlo simulations of the 2D Ising-Model, commonly used pseudo-random number generators (PRNG) lead to manifestly erroneous results. When parallel random number sequences for a parallel simulation are generated by a same PRNG with diffrent initial seeds, the sequences can be strongly correlated with each other if the(More)
