In this paper, we propose a novel computer gaming style Lifestyle Ubiquitous Gaming, where our experience is enriched in our daily lives by using gaming concepts. In lifestyle ubiquitous gaming, human daily activities are implicitly tracked and interpreted. Then, the feedback of the activities are returned to a user as a game system' presentation. The user(More)
To find efficient methods to evaluate oxidative stress in mouse skin caused by X-ray irradiation, several markers and methodologies were examined. Hairless mice were irradiated with 50 Gy X-rays and skin homogenates or skin strips were prepared. Lipid peroxidation was measured using the skin homogenate as the level of thiobarbituric acid reactive(More)
We present <i>CookieFlavors</i>, a TUI prototyping tool that provides a set of physical input primitives realized by coin-size Bluetooth wireless sensors named <i>Cookie</i>. Developers can attach CookieFlavors on any physical objects and examine the suitability of tangible input in a TUI prototype phase. We have built a map viewer application and projected(More)
We studied sequence polymorphism, expression level of pfmdr1 gene and drug sensitivity in mefloquine sensitive-strain as well as mefloquine-resistant clone/24 to understand underlying drug resistance mechanism. Mefloquine-resistant clone/24 exhibited decreased susceptibility to mefloquine, quinine, halofantrine and artemisinin and increased susceptibility(More)
Drug resistance in Plasmodium falciparum is a serious problem in most endemic areas. Recent studies have suggested the potential involvement of genes in the MDR gene family in resistance to quinoline-containing compounds in P. falciparum. In our present studies, a molecular analysis of pfmdr 1 in isolate strain of P. falciparum, 523a R, from Japanese(More)
We studied DNA sequence polymorphism, expression level of pfmdr1 gene and sensitivity of major antimalarial drugs in both mefloquine sensitive and resistant strains to elucidate mechanism of mefloquine resistance. Mefloquine-resistant 523a R/24 strain exhibited decreased susceptibility to mefloquine, artemisinin and halofantrine whereas increased(More)
Background: Robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP) has become the gold standard treatment for organ-confined prostate cancer. However, no proper surgical approach or appropriate postsurgical management of RALP has been established for a patient undergoing peritoneal dialysis. Here, we present a case of a peritoneal dialysis patient who underwent(More)
