Risk factors of renal involvement and significant proteinuria in Henoch-Schönlein purpura
TLDR
Long-term prognosis of Henoch-Schönlein purpura is dependent on the severity of renal involvement, especially significant proteinuria, so close attention should be paid to a urinalysis for at least 3 months from the onset of the disease. Expand
Epidemics of Vector-borne Diseases Observed in Infectious Disease Surveillance in Japan, 2000-2005
TLDR
The study reveals the epidemiologic features of both temporal and geographic distributions of cases of 6 vector-borne diseases in Japan, 2000-2005, which increased for dengue fever and Japanese spotted fever, and declined for malaria and scrub typhus. Expand
Overview of Infectious Disease Surveillance System in Japan, 1999-2005
TLDR
Comparison of the data between the 2 periods revealed that most of the diseases have had declining trends after the new law was enacted with several exceptions, and the new surveillance system with two different frameworks of mandatory reporting for severe diseases and sentinel reporting for milder diseases seems to be working well. Expand
[Age at the onset of intractable disease: based on a clinical database for patients receiving financial aid for treatment].
TLDR
Using a clinical database for patients receiving financial aid for treatment, the distribution of ages at onset and peak onset ages could be systematically clarified for individual intractable diseases. Expand
Epidemics of Drug-Resistant Bacterial Infections Observed in Infectious Disease Surveillance in Japan, 2001-2005
TLDR
An increasing incidence of MRSA and PRSP infections and monthly variation in PRSP and MDRPA infections were observed for the 5-year period and sex-age distributions of the patients reported to NESID in Japan were revealed. Expand
Annual and Weekly Incidence Rates of Influenza and Pediatric Diseases Estimated from Infectious Disease Surveillance Data in Japan, 2002-2005
BACKGROUND The method for estimating incidence of infectious diseases from sentinel surveillance data has been proposed. In Japan, although the annual incidence rates of influenza and pediatricExpand
Wide-area Epidemics of Influenza and Pediatric Diseases from Infectious Disease Surveillance in Japan, 1999-2005
TLDR
The frequency of wide-area epidemics of influenza and pediatric diseases in various prefectures was observed and Epidemics of infectious diseases occurring in small areas were likely to spread to wide areas. Expand
Epidemics of Influenza and Pediatric Diseases Observed in Infectious Disease Surveillance in Japan, 1999-2005
TLDR
The frequency and temporal change were described in the epidemics of influenza and pediatric diseases in public health center areas from the NESID data in Japan, 1999-2005. Expand
[The impact of changing critical values of the early epidemic detection system for infectious disease surveillance in Japan].
TLDR
The present examination of linkage between trends and frequencies of epidemic warnings/ pre-warnings and the critical values in the early epidemic detection system of infectious disease surveillance in Japan confirmed the expected increase with lowering of the threshold. Expand
[Age and cause of death contributing to reduction of disparity in age-adjusted overall mortality between males in Okinawa and mainland Japan].
TLDR
The results of this study revealed the extent of age and cause of death contributions to the decreasing disparity observed between populations of Okinawa and Japan nationwide in male age-adjusted overall mortality and confirmed that the difference-change contribution proportion is a useful method to quantify contributions to changes in variation regarding life expectancy.
