BACKGROUND Bronchial asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease that has a severe impact on health worldwide. METHODS A survey of 10,771 patients with bronchial asthma in the Tama region, Tokyo was conducted for 5 years to examine treatment and quality of life (QOL). Subjects were patients aged ≥ 16 years and their physicians who replied to a questionnaire(More)
The measurement of air temperature is strongly influenced by environmental factors such as solar radiation, humidity, wind speed and rainfall. This is problematic in low-cost air temperature sensors, which lack a radiation shield or a forced aspiration system, exposing them to direct sunlight and condensation. In this study, we developed a machine(More)
The microstructure at the interface of diffusion-bonded joints of oxygen-free high-conductivity copper for two kinds of surface conditions, with and without argon ion bombardment treatment, was investigated using scanning and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy and energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. The results showed that argon ion(More)
We propose a method which adaptively selects InfiniBand transport services used for source and destination peers to improve performance while limiting memory consumption of the MPI library. There are two major choices of IB transport services available, i.e., Reliable Connection (RC) and Dynamically Connected (DC), each of which is selected for each pair of(More)
