Yeast with pseudohyphae or those that have been phagocytized by white blood cells are coincidentally found in peripheral blood smears. The clinical diagnostic value and outcome of candidaemia diagnosed from peripheral blood smears (CPBSs) are unclear. A 45-year-old man with diabetes and panhypopituitarism for 20 years received 10 mg of hydrocortisone and(More)
Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonia (PCP) is classified as PCP with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and non-HIV PCP, and the two forms differ in progression and prognosis. Although early treatment is necessary, the diagnosis of non-HIV PCP is often difficult because of the underlying diseases. However, the outcome with treatment delay remains unclear(More)
This paper presents a mobile-controlled handoff with an end-to-end communication architecture that helps to provide high mobility without requiring any special service from the visiting networks. The handoff utilizes the IP diversity created by dual network interfaces at the mobile node and exploits the overlapping area between subnets. The end-to-end(More)
We evaluated the performance of the Verigene Gram-Negative Blood Culture Nucleic Acid Test (BC-GN; Nanosphere, Northbrook, IL, USA), an automated multiplex assay for rapid identification of positive blood cultures caused by 9 Gram-negative bacteria (GNB) and for detection of 9 genes associated with β-lactam resistance. The BC-GN assay can be performed(More)
Rituximab-related late-onset neutropenia (R-LON) is an adverse event associated with rituximab. A 65-year-old woman presented with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma of the kidney without bone marrow involvement. She was treated with 4 cycles of CHOP chemotherapy consisting of doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, vincristine, and prednisolone at 4-week intervals.(More)
We consider an online linear optimization problem over the set of permutations under some precedence constraints. In this problem, the player is supposed to predict a permutation of n fixed objects at each trial, under the constraints that some objects have higher priority than other objects in each permutation. This problem is naturally motivated by a(More)
