Serum urate and sodium concentrations were measured in 23 patients with acute viral and bacterial meningitis. Serum urate level was 3.0 +/- 0.2 mg/dl (mean +/- S.D.) (3.6 +/- 1.2 mg/dl in male and 2.5 +/- 0.9 mg /dl in female) on admission, but gradually elevated with improvements of meningitis. It turned to 4.8 +/- 0.2 mg/dl after recovery, and the value… (More)
In a prospective study of 19,561 Japanese men, green-tea intake was not associated with a lower risk of prostate cancer (110 cases), the multivariate hazard ratio for men drinking > or =5 cups compared with <1 cup per day being 0.85 (95% confidence interval 0.50-1.43, trend P = 0.81).
Using a conventional thermal chemical vapor deposition (CVD) system, ethanol vapor was enclosed in a reactor, i.e., no flow, with Co/Mo dip-coated quartz substrates to synthesize submillimeter long vertically aligned single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) films successfully. The no-flow CVD method yielded an increase in film thickness of up to 0.11 mm… (More)
