PURPOSE Patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty (TKA) are at high risk of venous thromboembolism, manifesting as deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of edoxaban 15 mg once daily (o.d.) for preventing DVT in patients undergoing TKA. METHODS Three hundred patients undergoing(More)
Osteoarthritis (OA) is characterized by articular cartilage degradation and hypertrophic joint changes. Interleukin (IL)-18 is a potent inducer of prostaglandin (PG) E2 in vitro. We determined the relation between IL-18 and PGE2 in synovial fluid (SF) of human OA, and discussed the role of IL-18 in the pathogenesis of OA and also its therapeutic(More)
OBJECTIVE To generate a mouse model of reactive arthritis (ReA), an aseptic synovitis that develops in joints distant from the primary bacterial infection site, to examine roles for Toll-like receptors (TLRs) that recognize bacterial components involved in the development of this arthritis, and to identify the cytokine(s) relevant to this arthritis.

It has been reported that transected spinal cord shows signs of axonal regeneration after peripheral nerve (PN) graft. We studied the membrane excitability and ion distribution in axons from transected rat spinal cord 3 weeks after PN graft using the spinal cord evoked potential, electron probe X-ray microanalysis, and the patch-clamp technique. Axonal(More)
Introduction: The lack of initial post-operative implant stability is recognized as an important determinant in the aseptic loosening process of cementless stem. However, there is no objective method to evaluate the mechanical stability at the time of implantation. In our previous study, it is confirmed that our system could successfully provide a criterion(More)
The various physiologic factors which might influence the time of first meconium passage were studied in 62 healthy full-term newborn infants. Thirty-two babies were born vaginally and 30 by elective cesarean section. Infants born vaginally were more acidotic and passed first stool earlier compared to those born by cesarean section. The same applies to(More)
