In this paper we describe the architecture of the 3D graphics LSI core for mobile phone "Z3D". The major 3D graphics applications on mobile phones are character animation and games. While a character animation or a game is running, the CPU has to be used for the communication to the center machine and CPU clock frequency is low. Therefore, the requirement(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of the study was to investigate the recurrence-free interval after phototherapeutic keratectomy (PTK) in patients with corneal dystrophies resulting from an Arg124His (R124H) mutation of the Big-h3 gene. METHODS Patients with corneal dystrophy resulting from a genetically confirmed Big-h3 R124H mutation were examined with a slit lamp.(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the preventive effect of vaccination using fusion protein (gD-IL-2) consisting of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) glycoprotein D (gD), and human interleukin-2 (IL-2), and plasmid DNA encoding gD-IL-2 against murine herpetic keratitis. METHODS Plasmid containing gD-IL-2 (pHDLneo1) was constructed, and gD-IL-2 peptide was purified.(More)
To compare disinfection by povidone-iodine (PI) solution with that by polyvinyl alcohol-iodine (PAI) solution in preoperative eyewash and to assess the optimal duration of the preoperative application of 0.5% levofloxacin (LVFX) ophthalmic solution. Two-hundred-seventy-two elderly cataract patients who had undergone phacoemulsification aspiration with(More)
PURPOSE To survey the use of triamcinolone acetonide (TA) for ocular disease in Japan. SUBJECTS AND METHODS A questionnaire was sent to 1,236 teaching hospitals approved by the Japanese Ophthalmological Society requesting information regarding indications, methods, efficacy and complications of TA administered from January through December 2005. The(More)
The tumorigenesis of bovine adenovirus type 3 was studied using either the wild type strain or three isolated virus clones and one experimentally induced variant, with the following results: 1. The wild type strain produced non-progressive, solid or cystic tumors which induced neutralizing antibodies. 2. The three cloned virus strains produced progressive,(More)
To study variations of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), we analyzed the gp350/220 gene for several cell lines and Japanese wild isolates using direct sequencing. The N-terminal region was highly conserved in all EBVs except for Jijoye/P3HR-1 and a few isolates. The variation of the region coincided with EBV types A and B (also referred to as types 1 and 2) and(More)
We developed an immunochromatographic assay kit that uses fluorescent silica nanoparticles bound to anti-Acanthamoeba antibodies (fluorescent immunochromatographic assay [FICGA]) and evaluated its efficacy for the detection of Acanthamoeba and diagnosis of Acanthamoeba keratitis (AK). The sensitivity of the FICGA kit was evaluated using samples of(More)
Studies have indicated that intracameral administration of moxifloxacin (MFLX), a fourth-generation fluoroquinolone, is safe and effective. However, administration methods vary between studies, and no definite protocol exists. A prospective study clarifying the incidence of endophthalmitis and complication rates associated with each administration method(More)
