A case study on identification of airborne organic compounds and time courses of their concentrations in the cabin of a new car for private use.
TLDR
The results of this study offer useful fundamental data for investigations on air pollution in automotive cabins due to the organic compounds diffusing from the interior materials according to multiple linear regression analysis. Expand
Dehydroepiandrosterone supplementation improves endothelial function and insulin sensitivity in men.
TLDR
The low dose DHEA supplementation improves vascular endothelial function and insulin sensitivity and decreases the plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1 concentration and these beneficial changes have the potential to attenuate the development of age-related disorders such as cardiovascular disease.

Interior Air Pollution in Automotive Cabins by Volatile Organic Compounds Diffusing from Interior Materials: I. Survey of 101 Types of Japanese Domestically Produced Cars for Private Use
The types and concentrations of organic compounds in the interior air of 101 different types of Japanese domestically produced private-use cars were examined. All the vehicles had been registered inExpand
Association between occupational exposure levels of antineoplastic drugs and work environment in five hospitals in Japan
TLDR
The contamination level of antineoplastic drugs was suggested to be related with the amount of drugs handled, cleaning methods of the equipment, and the skill level of the technique of maintaining negative pressure inside a vial. Expand
Correlation between lead in plasma and other indicators of lead exposure among lead-exposed workers
TLDR
P is a better dose indicator of lead biochemically available for heme synthesis and that PbU has a closer correlation with P bP than with PbB, according to a study on five workers in a Japanese factory manufacturing lead glass-based paints. Expand
Inhalation toxicokinetics of p-dichlorobenzene and daily absorption and internal accumulation in chronic low-level exposure to humans
Abstract. Inhalation toxicokinetics of p-dichlorobenzene (p-DCB) in humans was evaluated, and the amounts of daily absorption and internal accumulation were estimated in order to obtain fundamentalExpand
Dehydroepiandrosterone supplementation improves endothelial function and insulin sensitivity in men.
TLDR
The low dose DHEA supplementation improves vascular endothelial function and insulin sensitivity and decreases the plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1 concentration and these beneficial changes have the potential to attenuate the development of age-related disorders such as cardiovascular disease. Expand
Prognostic value of flow-mediated dilation of the brachial artery in patients with cardiovascular disease.
TLDR
The present results demonstrated that the magnitude of FMD in the brachial artery was a good predictor of subsequent cardiovascular events. Expand
Simultaneous analytical method for urinary metabolites of organophosphorus compounds and moth repellents in general population.
An analytical method was developed for simultaneous measurement of urinary metabolites in the general population exposed to organophosphorus compounds (insecticides, flame retardants andExpand
Ambient formaldehyde levels and allergic disorders among Japanese pregnant women: baseline data from the Osaka maternal and child health study.
TLDR
There was a tendency for a positive exposure-response relationship between FA levels and the prevalence of atopic eczema, although the adjusted odds ratio for highest vs. lowest FA categories did not reach statistical significance. Expand
