We performed a real-time PCR assay to detect herpes simplex virus (HSV) DNA, and compared it prospectively with a nested PCR assay in 164 clinical samples (109 cerebrospinal fluid and 55 sera) from patients suspected of having neonatal HSV infection or HSV encephalitis. In 25 of 164 samples, HSV DNA was detected by the nested PCR assay. All samples positive(More)
Neonatal herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection is a severe disease with high mortality and morbidity. To investigate the pathogenesis of neonatal HSV infection, we examined inflammatory responses and markers of apoptosis in patients with neonatal HSV infection. Concentrations of inflammatory cytokines and markers of apoptosis were significantly higher in(More)
Although posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) is caused by various conditions, there have been no reports on PRES associated with bronchial asthma. We report a case with PRES during the treatment for severe asthmatic attack. A 4-year-old girl was treated for asthmatic attack with steroids. From the 10th hospital day, hypertension, pulmonary(More)
SRM is possible to high output by high speed drive. However, efficiency decreases for increase of iron loss in high speed drive. Therefore, reduction of iron loss is necessary for high efficiency drive. And, we aim to improve of efficiency by electromagnetic steel sheet of low iron loss. We thought Si6.5% electromagnetic steel sheet is suitable to high(More)
The glycoprotein B (gB) region of the human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is a major envelope glycoprotein that is a principal target of neutralizing antibodies and is known to stimulate the immune response of cytotoxic T lymphocytes. HCMV is currently classified into four genotypes on the basis of the nucleotide sequence of the gB region. The presence of HCMV in(More)
