An early detection of colorectal cancer through colorectal endoscopy is important and widely used in hospitals as a standard medical procedure. During colonoscopy, the lesions of colorectal tumors on the colon surface are visually inspected by a Narrow Band Imaging (NBI) zoom-videoendoscope. By using the visual appearance of colorectal tumors in endoscopic(More)
The gene trap technique is a powerful approach for characterizing and mutating genes involved in mouse development. However, one shortcoming of gene trapping is the relative inability to induce subtle mutations. This problem can be overcome by introducing a knock-in system into the gene trap strategy. Here, we have constructed a new gene trap vector,(More)
In this paper we propose a recognition system for classifying NBI images of colorectal tumors into three types (A, B, and C3) of structures of microvessels on the colorectal surface. These types have a strong correlation with histologic diagnosis: hyperplasias (HP), tubular adenomas (TA), and carcinomas with massive submucosal invasion (SM-m). Images are(More)
BACKGROUND Familial idiopathic low molecular weight proteinuria (FILMWP) is a renal proximal tubulopathy characterized by mild proteinuria consisting of low molecular weight proteinuria and relatively conserved renal function in young patients, but without rickets. Mutations in the renal chloride channel CLCN5 gene have been reported in three disorders of(More)
Familial idiopathic low-molecular-weight proteinuria (FILMWP) is a renal proximal tubulopathy that occurs predominantly in males. FILMWP is characterized by mild proteinuria consisting of low-molecular-weight proteinuria, aminoaciduria and relatively conserved renal function, but without rickets. To determine whether FILMWP is related to the CLCN5 gene,(More)
