Effects of three different varieties (Koimidori, Powerful-Reishi, and Hyakunari) of bitter melon (Momordica charantia) and those of methanol fraction extract of Koimidori variety on serum and liver triglycerides were studied in rats. Feeding of diets containing either bitter melon or various fractions isolated by organic solvents caused no adverse effects(More)
The hypolipidemic effect of dietary methanol fraction (BMMF) extracted from bitter melon (Koimidori variety), at the levels of 0.5% and 1.0%, was examined in male golden Syrian hamsters fed diets supplemented with and without cholesterol. The feeding of BMMF at 0.5% and 1.0% levels in the diets for 4 wk tended to reduce food intake and growth, although(More)
In this paper, we present an architecture design of application-network collaborative bandwidth on-demand (BoD) network service. For emerging ultra-high-bandwidth data transmission, such as HDTV streaming and Tera-byte class remote file transfer, network providers are expected to offer flexible use of the high performance of the optical network resources.(More)
Verifying whether the routing information originating from an AS is being correctly distributed throughout the Internet is important for stable inter-AS routing operation. However, the global behavior of routing information is difficult to understand because it changes spatially and temporally. Thus, rapid detection of inter-AS routing failures and(More)
In the past years, the ALM (Application Layer Multicast) has led the rapid development of the real-time streaming data transmission technology. However, as focusing on the global performance and control, the individual efficiency in the ALM structure could not be guaranteed. Furthermore, according to the complex environment of the existing networks, the(More)
