BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The purpose of our study was to determine whether MR studies in the neonatal period are predictive of the neuroradiologic sequelae and clinical outcome in premature and term infants with perinatal brain injury. METHODS Thirty subjects (15 premature and 15 term infants) with abnormalities revealed by initial MR studies were(More)
AIMS To evaluate 0.75 mg of dulaglutide, a once-weekly glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist, compared with once-daily insulin glargine for glycaemic control in Japanese patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D). METHODS In this phase III, randomized, open-label, parallel-group, 26-week study, 361 patients with inadequately controlled T2D receiving(More)
BACKGROUND A thiazide diuretic used in combination with benazepril is superior to amlodipine plus benazepril in reducing albuminuria in hypertensive patients with diabetes. However, calcium channel blockers have diverse characteristics. Thus, we investigated whether combining an angiotensin receptor blocker with either azelnidipine or a thiazide diuretic(More)
Clinical significance of medullary abnormalities in the appendicular skeleton (AS) detected by low-dose whole-body multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) in patients with multiple myeloma (MM) was investigated. A total of 172 patients with monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS) (n=17), smoldering MM (n=47) and symptomatic MM (n=108)(More)
Reversal of renal dysfunction significantly affects the prognosis of multiple myeloma (MM) with renal impairment (RI). There is no reliable test for predicting reversibility of RI in MM patients. We postulated that MM with high albuminuria may reflect glomerular disease that is difficult to reverse. Here, we examined the impact of urinary albumin excretion.(More)
