We have previously reported the effects of Kaempferia parviflora (KP), including anti-obesity, preventing various metabolic diseases, and regulating differentiation of white adipose cells. In this study we used Tsumura, Suzuki, Obese Diabetes (TSOD) mice—an animal model of spontaneous obese type II diabetes—and primary brown preadipocytes to examine the(More)
BACKGROUND The definition of Helicobacter pylori-negative gastric cancer depends on the accuracy of diagnosis of H. pylori infection. The aim of this study was to determine the frequency of H. pylori-negative gastric cancer and to clarify relationships with histological atrophy, endoscopic atrophy, and serological atrophy. METHODS A total of 240 early(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM It was previously reported that high-grade intraepithelial neoplasia of the esophagus turns pink within a few minutes after iodine staining (pink-color sign; PCS); however, iodine staining is uncomfortable. By using narrow band imaging (NBI), color change in the area between the intraepithelial papillary capillary loop (background(More)
A darknet is a set of unused IP addresses whose monitoring is an effective way of detecting malicious activities on the Internet. We have developed an alert system called DAEDALUS (direct alert environment for darknet and livenet unified security), which is based on large-scale darknet monitoring. This paper presents a novel real-time 3D visualization(More)
— One of the significant requirements for testing a software implementation of an inter-AS DDoS countermeasure is to measure the performance of the implementation in a large scale topology with typical DDoS tools and traffic. Ideally, an emulated inter-AS topology with same scale of the real Internet will provide similar characteristics of the real Internet(More)
New technologies that will be introduced to the Internet should be practically tested for effectiveness and for side effects. A realistic environment that simulates the Internet is needed to experimentally test such technologies, which will be widely deployed on the Internet. To support experimentation in a realistic, Internet-like environment, we are now(More)
A 59-year-old woman presented with ascites and intraperitoneal lymph node swelling. Pathological examination of the lymph node revealed follicular lymphoma. After a lymph node biopsy, she developed atypical genital bleeding, multiple endocrine disorders, polyneuropathy with a high plasma level of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), and was diagnosed(More)
Building an experimental network within the testbed has been a tiresome process for experimenters, due to the complexity of the physical resource assignment and the configuration overhead. Also, the process could not be expedited across testbeds, because the syntax of a configuration file varies depending on specific hardware and software. In this paper, we(More)
Alphaproteobacterium strain Q-1 is able to oxidize iodide (I(-)) to molecular iodine (I(2)) by an oxidase-like enzyme. One of the two isoforms of the iodide-oxidizing enzyme (IOE-II) produced by this strain was excised from a native polyacrylamide gel, eluted, and purified. IOE-II appeared as a single band (51 kDa) and showed significant in-gel(More)
