Piscine nodaviruses (betanodaviruses) have been tentatively divided into four genotypes (SJNNV, RGNNV, TPNNV and BFNNV) and it is suggested that host specificity is different among these genotypes. In the present study, a betanodavirus [sevenband grouper nervous necrosis virus (SGNNV)] belonging to the redspotted grouper nervous necrosis virus (RGNNV)(More)
The effects of rearing temperature (23–29 °C) during the larval and juvenile stage on survival, growth and skeletal malformations in the seven-band grouper Epinephelus septemfasciatus were investigated. The survival rate of juveniles 30–40 mm in total length emerging from eggs was higher at 25 and 26 °C (0.1–1.3 %) than at 23 °C or 27–29 °C (0.004–1.5 %).(More)
Thirty-eight patients with chronic renal failure who were treated by hemodialysis more than 100 times each, including 13 cancer patients, were examined for serum alpha 2-globulin and immunoglobulin values monthly, the relationship between the possibility of cancer occurrence and the frequency of blood transfusion during hemodialysis was discussed. The alpha(More)
A 88 year old Japanese male was repeatedly infected with Ancyclostoma duodenale. He underwent an artificial anus operation about 55 years ago. He appeared to be infected with hookworm earlier than in 1977 and developed severe anemia. Though he was treated with pyrantel pamoate and mebendazole several times, reinfections developed in each time. A possible(More)
Two autopsy cases, a 77-year-old man and a 66-year-old woman, of cardiovascular amyloidosis with many giant cells were reported. These cells were always found adjacent to amyloid masses which were deposited mainly in small arteries and arterioles, and some of them contained amyloid substance in their cytoplasms. The incidence of these cells was high in the(More)
