BACKGROUND The aim of the present paper was to determine the mechanism by which the level of coagulation factor XIIIA declines during the active phase of Crohn's disease. METHODS The relationship between the activity of Crohn's disease and factor XIIIA was observed in 31 patients with Crohn's disease prospectively. The relationship between factor XIIIA(More)
BACKGROUND Subarachnoid clot is important in the development of delayed vasospasm after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). OBJECTIVE To compare the clearance of subarachnoid clot and the incidence of symptomatic vasospasm in surgical clipping and embolization with Guglielmi detachable coils for aneurysmal SAH. METHODS The subjects were 115 patients with(More)
We herein discovered a highly resistant clinical isolate of Pseudomonas aeruginosa with MICs to amikacin, gentamicin, and arbekacin of 128 μg/mL or higher in a drug sensitivity survey of 92 strains isolated from the specimens of Yoka hospital patients between January 2009 and October 2010, and Achromobacter xylosoxidans was separated from this P. aeruginosa(More)
We report herein the case of a 69-year-old Japanese man with acquired von Willebrand syndrome associated with monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance who developed IgG1-kappa antibodies against von Willebrand factor (VWF). The patient was urged to undergo tooth extractions because of alveolar pyorrhea, and a low-dosage intravenous immunoglobulin(More)
OBJECTIVE Subarachnoid clots play an important role in development of delayed vasospasm after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). The purpose of this study was to compare clearance of subarachnoid clots using external ventricular drainage (EVD) or lumbar drainage (LD) after Guglielmi detachable coil (GDC) embolization for aneurysmal SAH. METHODS The subjects(More)
The effects of Maillard reaction on gel properties of dried egg white (DEW) with galactomannan (GM) were investigated. Maillard-reacted DEW (MDEW) was prepared by dry-heating a mixture with a weight ratio of 1:4 of GM to DEW at 60 degrees C and 65% relative humidity. The modification of amino groups and polymerization of DEW proteins dry-heated with GM(More)
