We report 3 patients who experienced nonconvulsive status epilepticus following generalized convulsions during antidepressant treatment. All showed prolonged confusion with some psychiatric symptoms, and their electroencephalograms (EEGs) showed either bilateral synchronous multiple spike wave discharges or continuous diffuse sharp and slow waves. When(More)
BACKGROUND X-chromosome-linked inhibitor of apoptosis (XIAP) is one of the anti-apoptotic proteins leading to chemoresistance in several cancers. The aim of this study is to evaluate the impact of XIAP expression upon ovarian clear cell carcinoma (CCC) that has a platinum-resistant phenotype. METHODS Tissue microarrays made from 90 CCC patients were(More)
OBJECTIVE Lower birth weight is associated with higher insulin resistance in later life. The aim of this study was to determine whether cardiorespiratory fitness modifies the association of birth weight with insulin resistance in adults. METHODS The subjects were 379 Japanese individuals (137 males, 242 females) aged 20-64 years born after 1943. Insulin(More)
As described in this paper, a physical activity classification algorithm is proposed for energy expenditure estimation. The proposed algorithm can improve the classification accuracy using both the triaxial acceleration and heart rate. The optimal classification also contributes to improvement of the accuracy of the energy expenditures estimation. The(More)
BACKGROUND High-temperature-required protein A2 (HtrA2), a protein relating with apoptosis in a caspases-dependent and non-dependent manner, has been reported to be associated with chemosensitivity in several human cancers. METHODS Tissue microarrays made from 142 patients with high-grade serous ovarian adenocarcinoma were evaluated to assess whether(More)
