A 72-year-old woman with a sigmoid colon cancer and a synchronous colorectal liver metastasis (CRLM), which involved the right hepatic vein (RHV) and the inferior vena cava (IVC), was referred to our hospital. The metastatic lesion was diagnosed as initially unresectable because of its invasion into the confluence of the RHV and IVC. After she had undergone(More)
Gangliosides GM1 is a good marker of membrane microdomains (lipid rafts) with important function in cellular activation processes. In this study we found that GM1 expression on CD4+ T cells and memory T cells (CD45RO/CD4) were dramatic increased after stimulation with phytohaemagglutinin in vitro. Next, we examined the GM1 expression on peripheral blood(More)
We discuss here the complementarity effect of rewriting services in a language-translation Web service work-flow. The communication mediated by the machine translation service includes mistranslations and changed meanings, which are caused by the quality of the machine translation. To reduce these problems, we propose service reallocation and assemblage of(More)
We evaluated 51 poly-aluminum chloride (PACl) coagulants to determine the coagulant characteristics that were responsible for effective arsenate removal from contaminated river water by means of experiments involving coagulation, settling, and microfiltration. Some of the high-basicity PACls exhibited high arsenate removal percentages, particularly under(More)
We recently established a novel animal model of obese type 2 diabetes (T2D), the Zucker fatty diabetes mellitus (ZFDM) rat strain harboring the fatty mutation (fa) in the leptin receptor gene. Here we performed a phenotypic characterization of the strain, focusing mainly on the prediabetic state. At 6-8 weeks of age, fa/fa male rats exhibited mild glucose(More)
Image upsampling from one input image gathers considerable attention in the field of computer vision. The problem is ill-posed because the number of known low-resolution (LR) pixels is less than that of unknown high-resolution (HR) pixels. Therefore, quality of an upsampled image depends on prior assumptions. Image interpolation methods are one of the image(More)
