The purpose of the present study was to investigate the efficacy of amantadine in Parkinson's disease patients suffering from dyskinesias. METHODS In this multi-center, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, cross-over(More)
The KMDB/MutationView is a graphical database of mutations in human disease-causing genes and its current version consists of nine category-based sub-databases including diseases of eye, heart, ear, brain, cancer, syndrome, autoimmunity, muscle and blood. The KMDB/MutationView stores mutation data of 97 genes involved in 87 different disease and is(More)
BACKGROUND In March 2007, a regulatory advisory was issued in Japan to restrict oseltamivir use in children aged 10-19 years because of safety concerns over abnormal behavior. The effectiveness and validity of regulatory risk minimization actions remain to be reviewed, despite their significant public health implications. To assess the impact of the(More)
BACKGROUND Psychoses such as hallucinations are a frequent non-motor problem in patients with Parkinson disease (PD) and serious psychosis requires anti-psychotic medications that worsen Parkinsonism. Although psychosis could be associated with patient-related or biological factors such as cognition, age, and severity of PD, it can also be associated with(More)
A database of mutations in human eye disease genes has been constructed. This KMeyeDB employs a database software MutationView which provides graphical data presentation and analysis as a smooth user-interface. Currently, the KMeyeDB contains mutation data of 16 different genes for 18 eye diseases. The KMeyeDB is accessible through(More)
A database of mutations in human disease-causing genes has been constructed and named as Keio Mutation Database (KMDB). This KMDB utilizes a database software called MutationView which was designed to compile various mutation data and to provide graphical presentation of data analysis. Currently, the KMDB accommodates mutation data of 38 different genes for(More)
