BACKGROUND The present study was undertaken to examine the correlation between serum levels of adiponectin isoforms and the risk for endometrial cancer. METHODS This retrospective case-control study included 43 Japanese women with endometrial cancer and 62 Japanese women with no history of cancer. Serum levels of total adiponectin and the respective(More)
OBJECTIVE N-terminal pro-B type natriuretic peptide (NT-pro-BNP) is one of the biomarkers, increased by myocardial ischemia or subsequent, burdened wall stress. The aim of this study was to assess if NT-pro-BNP can predict the incidence of atrial fibrillation (AF) after off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (OPCAB). METHODS NT-pro-BNP was measured(More)
Electrocapacitography devised for medical purposes by Hatakeyama was applied as a noninvasive volumetric method to investigate circulation in the rabbit head and brain. The effective electric capacitance was measured by means of a highly sensitive device. An electrocapacitogram (ECPG) of the head, considered to reflect the volume of intracranial as well as(More)
Three types of multiple-layer structure are proposed for a two-wavelength-compatible phase-change optical disk that uses an 830-nm beam for writing and erasing and a 670-nm beam for reading. Each disk with an optimized structure exhibits high-enough carrier-to-noise and erasing ratios at 830 nm and 670 nm for practical use. One of the disks has a lower(More)
