BACKGROUND Myocarditis (MC) is an important cause of cardiac dysfunction in children. Fulminant MC is sometimes fatal, and sequelae may develop during follow-up. We conducted a nationwide survey to determine the clinico-epidemiological features of MC in Japanese children and adolescents. METHODS AND RESULTS Survey questionnaires were mailed to 627(More)
Our purpose is to study the effect on the blood flow caused by the valve in blood vessel. We examine the possibility that thrombosis is caused by pressing the artificial valve. We tried to solve the flow of blood by numerical analysis with an incompressibility Navier-Stokes equation. We supposed the static boundary condition about vessel shape, although(More)
BACKGROUND Aseptic meningitis is a serious adverse reaction to intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) therapy. We studied the clinical characteristics of patients with acute Kawasaki disease (KD) who developed IVIG-induced aseptic meningitis. METHODS A retrospective analysis of the medical records of patients with KD who developed aseptic meningitis after IVIG(More)
Future Japanese population pyramid and death toll are similarity. According to the national census performed in last October, Japan entered population decline society. A trend of population of man and woman is shown until 2060. A calculation results are shown every five years. The population is classified in an age-grade every 5 years old. The population of(More)
This study analyzed the direct and indirect CO 2 emissions of the energy-intensive basic metals industry, in particular steels, using the distributions of various energy sources, including coal/peat, oil, and electricity, from an input–output table. An analysis of five major steel producing countries indicated that direct CO 2 emissions increased 1.4-fold(More)
We have the three biological discussions as for stochastic and dissipative equations. The first model belongs to the group of diffuse equations according to a kind of complex Fokker-Planck equation. The second one show the concrete stochastic model for actin-myosin system using stochastic resonance, and the last is stochastic or diffusional flagellar motor(More)
The Macrobiotus hufelandi is a living thing that belongs to the Tardigrada. And, it is known as a living thing where it can live in the breaking point of the life for a long term. Because for Macrobiotus hufelandi's cell to endure turbulence. However, there are many uncertain points about the biological function mechanism. Authors researched; Ecology of(More)
In order to understand the movement of actin-myosin system in muscle, we propose new model of stochastic inclined rods model (DS-SIRM). DS-SIRM has many inclined rods stood out from its body and it moves always forward to one direction whenever those rods are independently vibrating. DS-SIRM can convert the thermal noise to the one directional motion by(More)
Accurate evaluation of fall accidents is needed on the effect of protectors such as helmet or safety cap to reduce the shock from the impact to head is very important. We have done the experiment in JARI using human-type robot which simulates the human accidental injury. The precise data of acceleration has been taken from the robot, then HIC has been(More)
While TSH-producing adenoma (TSHoma) is rare, the diagnosis is often delayed because the clinical features are heterogeneous. The patient was a 69-year-old woman who had been referred to the Yachiyo Medical Center in August 2008, because of dyspnea, loss of appetite, weight loss of 10 kg, and diarrhea that lasted 4 years. We diagnosed this patient with(More)
