The aim of this study was to investigate theory of mind (ToM) ability in patients in remission after the first episode of schizophrenia. A ToM task which contained four pictures was given to 30 patients with schizophrenia in remission and 30 matched healthy controls. Patients with schizophrenia in remission showed statistically significant impairment in the(More)
From the genome library of Staphylococcus warneri M, the two successive cell-lysis genes (holWMY and lytWMY) were cloned and characterized. The lytWMY gene encoded a protein (LysWMY), whose calculated molecular mass and pI were 54 kDa and 8.95, respectively. When overproduced in Escherichia coli, lysWMY directed a protein of 45 kDa (smaller than the(More)
The ATM Forum formed a working group in 1996 to address issues in the eecient support for scalable multipoint-to-multipoint (mpt-mpt) communication in ATM. These issues include traac management and, in particular, available bit rate (ABR) service. While a number of eecient protocols for point-to-point (pt-pt) ABR service have been proposed, the more(More)
A patient with a 17-year history of plaque psoriasis accompanied by type 2 diabetes mellitus discontinued cyclosporine and steroid ointment given for treatment of psoriasis because she was dissatisfied with the effects of the drugs. After sitagliptin, a dipeptidyl peptidase-IV (DPP-IV) inhibitor, was administered for control of blood glucose, psoriatic skin(More)
Shotgun cloning of the Lactobacillus gasseri JCM 1131T whole DNA yielded two recombinant plasmids, p118gaY1 and p118gaY2, which directed cell lysis activity. Sequencing analysis revealed that the two plasmids carried almost identical inserted genes in following orders (truncated genes, in parentheses): in p118gaY1,(More)
Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection causes a wide range of neurologic and hematologic manifestations. We report a 72-year-old Japanese male patient with severe chronic active EBV infection syndrome (SCAEBV) who presented with Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) and developed hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) several months after the onset of GBS. He showed(More)
This paper presents a hazard/crime incident information sharing system using cell phones. Cell phone penetration is nearly 100% among adults in Japan, and they function as a telecommunication tool as well as a Global Positioning System (GPS) and camera. Open source software (Apache, Postfix, and MySQL) is installed on a system server, and together with the(More)
