The relationship between age and intraocular pressure in a Japanese population: The influence of central corneal thickness
TLDR
The IOP decreases with age in the Japanese, and CCT variation has practically no effect on the unique age-IOP relationship. Expand
Hip Fracture Prevention Trial Using Hip Protectors in Japanese Nursing Homes
TLDR
The hip protector is a beneficial device for the prevention of hip fractures and the effect of the hip protector on hip fracture prevention was independent of anthropometric data, ultrasonic bone assessment values or number of falls. Expand
Refractive errors and factors associated with myopia in an adult Japanese population.
TLDR
The prevalence of myopia in a Japanese population was similar to that in other Asian surveys but higher than in black or white populations, and a significant association with education levels and socioeconomic factors. Expand
Association of polymorphisms of the estrogen receptor α gene with bone mineral density of the femoral neck in elderly Japanese women
TLDR
The results suggest that the estrogen receptor α gene is a susceptibility locus for bone mass, especially for the femoral neck, in elderly Japanese women. Expand
Association of polymorphisms of the osteoprotegerin gene with bone mineral density in Japanese women but not men.
TLDR
The present results implicate the osteoprotegerin gene as a susceptibility locus for reduced BMD in Japanese women and were not associated with the 950T --> C or 245T --> G genotypes in men. Expand
Age-related change in contrast sensitivity among Japanese adults.
TLDR
The results suggest that contrast sensitivity tests, especially at high frequencies, assess aspects of visual function that cannot be determined in the elderly population from visual acuity tests alone. Expand
Association of polymorphisms in the estrogen receptor α gene with body fat distribution
TLDR
For women, the A → G polymorphism, in particular the GG genotype, may contribute to the development of upper-body obesity in middle-aged individuals, but may serve to decrease the whole-body and abdominal fat tissue of older individuals. Expand
Communication between patients and physicians about terminal care: a survey in Japan.
TLDR
The analysis by kappa coefficients showed that the concordance between patients' preferences and physicians' estimation was not far from a figure expected by chance alone. Expand
Association of polymorphisms in the estrogen receptor alpha gene with body fat distribution.
TLDR
For women, the A --> G polymorphism, in particular the GG genotype, may contribute to the development of upper-body obesity in middle-aged individuals, but may serve to decrease the whole-body and abdominal fat tissue of older individuals. Expand
