The role of cytomegalovirus infection in triggering systemic lupus erythematosus remains a subject of debate. Here, we present a case of childhood systemic lupus erythematosus with concomitant cytomegalovirus infection, which sheds light on the relationship between these conditions and their treatment in pediatric patients. A 12-year-old Japanese girl with(More)
Females of a lichen moth, Barsine expressa (Arctiidae, Lithosiinae), which inhabit Iriomote Island in Japan, were captured by a black-light trap, and the pheromone gland extract was analyzed by gas chromatography (GC) with an electroantennographic (EAG) detector, and by GC coupled with mass spectrometry. The females produced several EAG-active esters, and(More)
— This study describes an approach to estimate the maximum friction between the pushbelt and pulley set in a mass-produced Continuously Variable Transmission. Up-to-date friction knowledge is useful to accurately determine the maximum transmittable torque and to monitor the variator condition. Besides standard sensors, torque signals are assumed to be(More)
