We investigated the effect of acetic acid (AcOH) on the prevention of obesity in high-fat-fed mice. The mice were intragastrically administrated with water or 0.3 or 1.5% AcOH for 6 weeks. AcOH administration inhibited the accumulation of body fat and hepatic lipids without changing food consumption or skeletal muscle weight. Significant increases were(More)
Acetic acid (AcOH), a main component of vinegar, recently was found to suppress body fat accumulation in animal studies. Hence we investigated the effects of vinegar intake on the reduction of body fat mass in obese Japanese in a double-blind trial. The subjects were randomly assigned to three groups of similar body weight, body mass index (BMI), and waist(More)
This paper proposes an improved context-aware language supported system for learning Japanese mimetic words and onomatopoeia (MIO) using wireless sensor network " MOTE ". In our previous work, a learner wears sensors so that the system provides the appropriate MIO expressions at his/her place. In this current system called JAMIOLAS (Supporting Japanese(More)
We have reported that acetic acid (AcOH) intake suppresses body fat mass and up-regulates the genes involved in fatty acid oxidation, but it is not clear whether the suppression of body fat mass by AcOH administration is due to an increase in energy expenditure (EE). In this study, we investigated to determine whether a single oral administration of AcOH(More)
Excessive dynamic airway collapse (EDAC) has been diagnosed using dynamic CT during inspiration and expiration. We herein report an asthma patient with EDAC that was detected incidentally using nondynamic CT. The patient presented with wheezing, cough and mild fever. Treatment for the asthma did not improve her wheeze. CT revealed tracheal narrowing and(More)
