A liquid droplet in contact with a solid surface was simulated by the molecular dynamics method, in order to study the microscopic aspects of the liquid-solid contact phenomena and phase change heat transfer. Measured ‘contact angle’ was well correlated by the depth of the integrated potential of the surface. The layered liquid structure near the surface(More)
We reported results of a clinico-encephalographic study using proposal for classification of epilepsies and epileptic syndromes (1989 ILAE). Fifty-three patients belonged to localization-related epilepsies (LE) and syndromes; forty-one patients belonged to generalized epilepsies and syndromes (GE); one patient belonged to epilepsies and syndromes(More)
BACKGROUND We compared the clinical results of orthotopic neobladder reconstruction in elderly patients and those in younger patients retrospectively in order to verify whether age is a critical factor in selecting a method of urinary diversion. METHODS Following radical cystectomy for bladder cancer, 12 patients aged 75 or older and 17 patients under 75(More)
Serological expression cloning of antigens eliciting a humoral immune response to a syngeneic mouse sarcoma identified pem (mouse placenta and embryonic expression gene) as a new member of the cancer/testis family. To identify the human homologue of pem, mouse pem sequences and pem-related expressed sequence tags from human testis were used as PCR primers(More)
BACKGROUND In the glomerulonephritis, mesenchymal cells frequently repeat the expression of fetal immunohistochemical phenotypes. However, in human glomerulogenesis the phenotypic alteration of mesangial and other types of glomerular cells has not been clearly defined. Our aim was to clarify the characteristics of fetal mesangial cells and glomerular(More)
In a male infant who had cardiomyopathy, generalized muscle weakness and increased serum creatine kinase levels, his muscle biopsy revealed myopathic changes with tiny intracytoplasmic vacuoles containing PAS-positive material and high acid phosphatase activity, but had normal acid maltase activity biochemically. These findings were consistent with those(More)
CD34 is a marker of haematopoietic progenitor cells, stromal precursors, vascular endothelial cells, and a variety of stromal tumour cells. This immunohistochemical study examined the CD34 expression of glomerular mesangial cells in normal and diseased glomeruli and compared it with the staining patterns of alpha-smooth muscle actin (ASMA), as a transformed(More)
To assess antibody and cellular immune responses, 156 healthy children were immunized at approximately 18 months of age with acellular diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis vaccine. Changes in antibody responses to filamentous hemagglutinin (FHA) and to pertussis toxin (PT) were similar in pattern, and antibody titers reached values equal to those from patients with(More)
In order to confirm the constitution of hepatoprotective oleanene glucuronide (OG), HPLC profile analyses of the total OG fractions of both Puerariae Thomsonii Flos (the flowers of Pueraria thomsonii) and Puerariae Lobatae Flos (the flowers of P. lobata) were performed. No remarkable difference in the HPLC profiles with respect to OGs in the flowers was(More)
