A compact image-capturing system called TOMBO (an acronym for thin observation module by bound optics) is presented in which the compound-eye imaging system is utilized to achieve a thin optical configuration. The captured multiple images are processed to retrieve the image of the target object. For image retrieval, two kinds of processing method are(More)
We document serial changes in the electrocardiogram (ECG) and myocardial markers in a case of severe heat stroke treated with cooling procedures. A 23-year-old comatose male with heat stroke was presented in the emergency room. The condition of the patient was complicated by hepatic failure, rhabdomyolysis, acute renal failure, and cardiac abnormalities.(More)
The neurotrophin family plays pivotal roles in the development of the nervous system. Recently, the role of the neurotrophin in non-neural tissue has been extensively investigated. Among them, neurotrophin-3 and its receptor TrkC are critical for embryonic heart development, though little is known about neurotrophin-3/TrkC function in adult heart. Moreover,(More)
Prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) is a potent lipid mediator in a diverse range of biological processes. This study examined the hypertrophic effect of PGE2 in primary cultured rat neonatal cardiomyocytes. PGE2 increased total protein synthesis in a dose-dependent manner, as measured by [3H]-phenylalanine uptake. PGE2 increased the cell size and surface area and(More)
