In this paper, we propose a new data management method for handling relations on genealogy display software easily. It is named “Widespread Hands to InTErconnect BASic Elements (WHIteBasE)”. The WHIteBasE is a hidden node for integrating the relations due to an event including a married couple and their children. That is, individual's data(More)
Right heart failure is a critical complication in patients requiring mechanical ventricular support. However, it is often difficult to provide adequate right ventricular support in the acute phase. A 41-year-old woman diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy with severe right heart failure underwent implantation of a paracorporeal pulsatile left ventricular(More)
There is evidence suggesting that the GABA system in the arcuate nucleus, where orexigenic neuropeptide Y and agouti-related peptide as well as anorexigenic proopiomelanocortin (POMC) are expressed, plays an important role in energy balance. In this study, we generated POMC-specific GABAB receptor-deficient [knock-out (KO)] mice. Male KO mice on a high-fat(More)
The long-term management of paracorporeal biventricular assist devices (BiVAD) is difficult because of significant risks of bleeding, thrombosis, and infection. Here we report the case of a 41-year-old woman with severe dilated cardiomyopathy who developed serious cerebral bleeding after receiving a paracorporeal BiVAD but recovered well after treatment.(More)
In this paper, we propose a new system for enhanced viewing of electronic text. It is named “Magnifying And Simplifying System for Text EXTension (MaSSTExt)”. This system for displaying text has the operational feeling like a map system displayed on a web browser. No link buttons are used for changing the other pages in this system because it(More)
In test-driven development, programs for tests are written before coding the main program, and using software frameworks for support testing, implementation of the program becomes easy by the frequent and low cost feedback of these tests. In this work, application of test-drive development framework for environmental software was attempted. As a case study,(More)
Aspergillus oryzae KB produces two β-fructofuranosidases (F1 and F2). F1 has high transferring activity and produces fructooligosaccharides from sucrose. Mycelial growth pellets were altered by the addition of Tween 20, 40 and 80 (HLB=16.7, 15.6 and 15.0, respectively) in liquid medium cultures to form small spherical pellets. The particle size of the(More)
According to several previous reports on persistent fifth aortic arch (PFAA), the presentation of the patients was usually either very mild when diagnosed by physical examination including upper body systemic hypertension and systolic murmur, or severe with ductal shock in the neonatal period. In our case, the clinical course was unique with relatively mild(More)
