Estimating age of humans based on telomere shortening.
TLDR
The terminal restriction fragment (TRF) length is determined, as telomere length, using Southern blot analysis of peripheral human blood and blood stains to give a rough estimation of age of subjects in forensic samples that carry no morphological information. Expand
Age estimation in dental pulp DNA based on human telomere shortening
TLDR
These findings show that telomere shortening, based on dental pulp DNA is a new and useful approach to estimate age of the subject at the time of death. Expand
Construction of calibration-locking databases for rapid and reliable drug screening by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry
Unique calibration-locking databases were constructed for rapid and semiquantitative drug screening by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GCMS). In addition to the free-drug database of 127 drugs,Expand
Rapid and quantitative screening method for 43 benzodiazepines and their metabolites, zolpidem and zopiclone in human plasma by liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry with a small particle column.
TLDR
A rapid and quantitative screening method for 43 benzodiazepines, their metabolites, zolpidem and zopiclone in human plasma by liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry with a small particle column that is sensitive and rapid, thus it should be useful in forensic and clinical toxicological analyses. Expand
Pattern of poisoning in Japan: selection of drugs and poisons for systematic toxicological analysis
TLDR
This is the first study to show the toxic drugs and poisons to be analyzed in Japan based on frequency of use, and as such the list will be useful in establishing the most efficient screening system in forensic practice. Expand
Methamphetamine-related sudden death with a concentration which was of a 'toxic level'.
TLDR
A diagnosis of the exact cause of death is often difficult to make in cases where the blood concentration of methamphetamine was of a 'toxic level', and a diagnosis has to be carefully made in consideration of the pathological findings, the pharmacological effects of methamphetamine and the process until death in such cases. Expand
A fatal case of poisoning related to new cathinone designer drugs, 4-methoxy PV8, PV9, and 4-methoxy PV9, and a dissociative agent, diphenidine.
TLDR
Based on the pathological and toxicological findings, the cause of death was determined to be 3 types of cathinone drugs, 4-methoxy PV8, PV9, and 4- methoxy POP, and diphenidine poisoning under the influence of 3 benzodiazepines and alcohol. Expand
Simultaneous determination of formate and acetate in whole blood and urine from humans using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry.
TLDR
A sensitive and simple method for simultaneous determination of formate and acetate in whole blood and urine from humans using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, which can be determined in forensic cases. Expand
A fatal case of amoxapine poisoning under the influence of chronic use of psychotropic drugs.
TLDR
The cause of death was determined to be amoxapine poisoning on the basis of chronic heart failure due to the chronic use of psychotropic drugs. Expand
Determination of nitrate in blood by gas chromatography and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry.
TLDR
The blood nitrate levels of two victims who committed suicide by inhaling automobile exhaust gas were determined using a sensitive and simple method using an extractive alkylation technique. Expand
