Using proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy ((1)H-MRS), we measured chemical metabolites in the left amygdala and the bilateral orbito-frontal cortex (OFC) in children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The concentrations of N-acetylaspartate (NAA) in these regions of ASD were significantly decreased compared to those in the control group. In the(More)
The influences of designing product spread from human scale to social scale. It is necessary for product designer to easily and quickly get the overview and the insight of the social and environmental influences of the designing product. So, new product life cycle simulation system for product development based on the interaction of subjects is proposed.(More)
Software Defined Network (SDN) is revolutionizing the networking industry by a potential of enabling flexible and uniform management by decoupling the control plane and forwarding plane. However, there are several issues on scalability and adaption against conventional network protocols to implement on the large scaled network. To address these issues, we(More)
Using an immunoradiometric assay, serum CA125 levels were measured in 13 women with a normal pregnancy, 9 with a spontaneous abortion, 3 with a hydatidiform mole, and 15 with a tubal pregnancy. Serum CA125 levels were high in patients with a normal pregnancy (154±169 U/ml; mean±S.D.), a spontaneous abortion (244±258 U/ml), or a hydatidiform mole (54±16(More)
INTRODUCTION Mutations of SLC35A2 that encodes Golgi-localized Uridine diphosphate (UDP)-galactose transporter at Xp11.23 lead to congenital disorders of glycosylation (CDG). Although patients with CDG generally have diverse systemic symptoms, patients with a SLC35A2 mutation manifest predominantly disorders of the central nervous system (CNS). CASE(More)
We previously reported neural dysfunction in the anterior cingulate cortex and dorsolateral prefrontal cortex in autistic patients using proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy ((1)H-MRS). In this investigation, we measured chemical metabolites in the left amygdala and the bilateral orbito-frontal cortex (OFC), which are the main components of the social(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the GABA(A) receptor in the autistic brain, we performed (123)I-IMZ SPECT in patients with ASD. We compared (123)I-IMZ SPECT abnormalities in patients who showed intellectual disturbance or focal epileptic discharge on EEG to those in patients without such findings. SUBJECTS AND METHODS The subjects consisted of 24 patients with ASD(More)
A 51-year-old woman presented with lumbar backache leading to the preoperative diagnosis of a right solid adnexal mass with calcification on computed tomographic scan. Histological examination revealed a right ovarian luteinized thecoma characterized by extensive calcification and metaplastic ossification. Osteoblasts and osteoclasts surrounded the surface(More)
PURPOSE To elucidate the functional characteristics of cortical tubers that might be responsible for epilepsy in tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC), proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy ((1)H-MRS) and [123I] iomazenil (123I-IMZ) single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) were performed. METHODS (1)H-MRS using a clinical 3-tesla magnetic resonance(More)
We prepared submicron-scale spherical hollow particles of anatase TiO2 by using a polystyrene-bead template. The obtained particles were very uniform in size, with a diameter of 490 nm and a shell thickness of 30 nm. The Brunauer-Emmett-Teller surface area measurements revealed a large value of 70 m2/g. The photocatalytic property was investigated by the(More)
