Although peritoneal lavage cytology is widely performed during surgery for gastric cancer and the results have been reported to be one of the accurate prognostic factors, the cancer stage is determined independent of the results of lavage cytology according to the First English Edition of Japanese Classification of Gastric Carcinoma. In this study we(More)
The feasibility of the new classification of stage grouping by the Japanese Research Society for Gastric Cancer was evaluated. During the 22-year period between January 1975 and December 1996, a total of 1294 patients with primary gastric cancer underwent laparotomy at the Department of Surgery, Chiba University; 1222 had their lesions removed during the(More)
Human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) are uniquely dependent on aerobic glycolysis to generate ATP. However, the importance of oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) has not been elucidated. Detailed amino acid profiling has revealed that glutamine is indispensable for the survival of hPSCs. Under glucose- and glutamine-depleted conditions, hPSCs quickly died(More)
< 0.001) were observed after transplantation. An elevation in RV5 + SV1 levels by 0.6 mV on electrocardiogram (P = 0.042) was seen without any change in the cardiothorathic ratio on chest X-ray. Echocardiographic measurements of six recipients revealed great improvements in the left ventricular systolic dimension and thickness of the posterior wall of the(More)
Differences in the methodologies for evaluating atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation outcomes should be evaluated. In the present study, we compared the AF ablation outcomes among periodic clinic electrocardiography (ECG), 24-h Holter ECG, and telemonitoring ECG to evaluate the differences among these methods. In addition, we evaluated the AF-free survival(More)
Cell transplantation therapy will mean a breakthrough in resolving the donor shortage in cardiac transplantation. Cardiomyocyte (CM) transplantation, however, has been relatively inefficient in restoring cardiac function after myocardial infarction (MI) due to low engraftment of transplanted CM. In order to ameliorate engraftment of CM, the novel(More)
Cardiac regenerative therapy with human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs), such as human embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells, has been hampered by the lack of efficient strategies for expanding functional cardiomyocytes (CMs) to clinically relevant numbers. The development of the massive suspension culture system (MSCS) has shed light on(More)
We propose JitSeer, a long horizon prediction method for the delay variation of IP packets; i.e., jitter. In designing JitSeer, we directed our attention to similarities between delay variation, which is the variation of one-way delay, and volatility in finance, which is the variation of financial asset return. From a time series view, the similarities are(More)
