Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are becoming popular methods for examining tumorous lesions along the upper gastrointestinal tract. Though duplication cysts are uncommon. EUS findings from gastric duplication cysts have accumulated and proven very useful for preoperative diagnosis. There have been few reports, however,(More)
The frequencies of chromosomal breaks and sister chromatid exchanges (SCE) are influenced by pregnancy, oral hormonal contraceptives and the menstrual cycle. The changes in the number and sites of spontaneous and aphidicolin-induced breaks on chromosomes from peripheral blood lymphocytes during the menstrual cycle were examined in 8 healthy women. Menstrual(More)
We describe herein the case of a 45-year-old man who developed a periosteal chondroma in a rib at the site of a thoracotomy that had been performed 24 years previously. To our knowledge, this is only the third case of a periosteal chondroma in a rib to be documented in the world literature. Some authors have suggested that trauma, including that of surgery,(More)
Wild-derived mice have long offered invaluable experimental models for mouse genetics because of their high evolutionary divergence from laboratory mice. A number of wild-derived strains are available from the RIKEN BioResource Center (BRC), but they have been maintained as living stocks because of the unavailability of assisted reproductive technology(More)
We report a case of basaloid carcinoma of the thymus, confirmed by histopathological examination, in a 52-year-old man who underwent complete resection. Local recurrence and lung metastases developed, which were obliterated by radiation therapy. The patient survived for 81 months after surgery. We reviewed the 13 other cases of basaloid carcinoma of the(More)
We present an environment that enables non-programmers to quickly author interactive augmented reality projects without writing code or waiting to compile. Major changes to models, animation, behaviors and interactivity can be made while the application is running, and the results immediately seen on a HMD or screen. We do this by combining marker-tracking(More)
We propose a method to extract traffic information from videos of road intersections, taken from a low-resolution camera fixed 2 to 7m above ground. First, feature points are detected and tracked with the Kanade-Lucas-Tomasi tracker to obtain trajectories. These trajectories are then segmented into groups corresponding to vehicles so that the vehicle's(More)
SnO 2-Ag composite nanomaterials of mass ratio 1:4, 2:3, 3:2 and 4:1 were fabricated and tested for toxicity to E. coli using the pour-plate technique. The said nanomaterials were mixed with laminating fluid and then coated on glass slides. The intensity of UVA transmitted through the coated glass slides was measured. Results revealed that the 1:4 ratios of(More)
The authors discuss which type of antibodies, the circulating or the tissue-bound antibodies, are important in the pathogenesis of fixed drug eruptions (FAE). Observation of some pertinent cases and results of epicutaneous tests support the hypothesis that in FDE the tissue-bound antibodies are of main importance. Histologic examinations of different stages(More)
