A new experimental technique to measure crater growth is presented whereby a high speed video captures profiles of a crater forming after impact obtained using a vertical laser sheet centered on the impact point. Unlike previous so called “quarter-space experiments”, where projectiles were launched along a transparent Plexiglas sheet so that growth of half(More)
BACKGROUND A close correlation of the p53 protein expression to nuclear pleomorphism and proliferative activity in breast cancer has been reported. The prognostic implications of p53 protein expression, however, in relation to nuclear pleomorphism and proliferative activity in breast cancer remain controversial. PATIENTS AND METHODS Nuclear pleomorphism(More)
An epidermoid cyst is a common occurrence in the skin. Such a cyst occurring in the retrorectal space, however, is extremely rare. We herein present a case of retrorectal epidermal cyst in a 67-year-old Japanese woman. She reported no symptoms and a perirectal mass behind the lower rectum was accidentally detected by computed tomography (CT). Contrast CT(More)
Milk fat globule membrane (MFGM) comprises carbohydrates, membrane-specific proteins, glycoproteins, phospholipids, and sphingolipids. We evaluated the effects of MFGM consumption over a 12-wk period on endurance capacity and energy metabolism in BALB/c mice. Long-term MFGM intake combined with regular exercise improved endurance capacity, as evidenced by(More)
Waste bagasse of Agave tequilana-Weber fibers treated with sodium hydroxide was used to elaborate hydrogel films. The bagasse was offered in an alternative use for the preparation of hydrogel films by phase inversion method without crosslinking and further purification of cellulose. The effect on the properties of the obtained films was studied when the(More)
Small bowel anisakiasis is a relatively uncommon disease and there is only a few report of laparoscopic treatment for patients with small bowel anisakiasis. We report a case of ileal anisakiasis successfully treated by laparoscopy-assisted partial resection of the ileum. A 39-year-old Japanese man visited our hospital with right lower quadrant pain.(More)
Introduction: Titan has a thick atmosphere composed primarily of N 2 with a few percent of CH 4. One of the most puzzling aspects of Titan's atmosphere is the origin of N 2 because of the near absence of non-radiogenic noble gases (e.g., 36 Ar) in the atmosphere, highly suggestive of that the nitrogen was captured as NH 3 and other non-N 2-bearing compounds(More)
Introduction: Hypervelocity impacts on the surface of growing planets may generate impact-induced vapor clouds and many chemical species are produced within such vapor clouds. These species may control the surface environments of the planets, such as temperature and redox state of the atmosphere. It is, thus, important to understand the composition of gases(More)
