A method for predicting pedestrian movement on the basis of a mixed Markov-chain model (MMM) is proposed. MMM takes into account a pedestrian's personality as an unobservable parameter. It also takes into account the effects of the pedestrian's previous status. A promotional experiment in a major shopping mall demonstrated that the highest prediction(More)
BACKGROUND Although several kinds of evidence suggest that glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and proteoglycans (PGs) may contribute to the development of beta2-microglobulin-related (Abeta2m) amyloidosis, the precise roles of these molecules for the development of Abeta2m amyloidosis are poorly understood. METHODS We investigated the effects of GAGs and PGs on(More)
We previously identified pyruvate dehydrogenase kinase 4 (PDK4) mRNA as a most rapidly induced mRNA by fibrates and suggested the possibility that the coupled induction of PDK4 and reduction of serum triglyceride and fatty acid levels can cause protein degradation in muscles. To investigate whether the drugs that are known to have a risk of rhabdomyolysis(More)
