OBJECTIVE D-dimer is a breakdown product of fibrin mesh after factor XIII stabilization. Previously, many authors have demonstrated a relationship between D-dimer level and stroke progression or type. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between D-dimer level and stroke volume. METHODS Between January 2008 and December 2009, we analyzed the(More)
Pipes are everywhere; they are used in power plants, chemical plants, and gas, oil and water supply systems. An inpipe robot is developed, whose movement is copied from the inchworm in nature. It consists of two universal joints, and two clamping and one expansion devices, which use the compressed air as the energy source; the clamping devices are operated(More)
Pipes are everywhere; they are used in power plants, chemical plants, and gas, oil supply system. The high temperature and high pressure piping for power plants, you have to go through the gas that may remain inside the piping, the use of the electric driving device is limited. This is a robot that mimics the motion of inchworms. This robot has limited the(More)
The short in vivo half-life of GLP-1 prevents it from being used clinically. This short half-life occurs because GLP-1 is rapidly degraded by dipeptidyl peptidases such as DPP-IV. To overcome this obstacle, a GLP-1/Fc was constructed and evaluated to determine if it was degraded by DPP-IV and in serum. When the degradation of GLP-1/Fc by human DPP-IV and(More)
Central corneal thickness (CCT) can be a promising source of glaucoma monitoring and diagnosis. This study evaluated changes in CCT according to experimental adjustment of intraocular pressure (IOP) in canine eyes. To adjust and measure IOP, each eye was cannulated with two 26-gauge needles under inhalant anesthesia. One needle was connected to a pressure(More)
The methods of microarray fabrication are categorized as contact printing and non-contact printing according to spot formation techniques. In contact printing, a printing device does physical contact at the substrate while depositing biological sample. In contrast, non-contact printing involves no physical contact between the device and the substrate. In(More)
— This paper describes the issues and challenges in the design of an interoperable mobile security card for campus-wide ubiquitous services. The card holder becomes able to take pleasure of utilizing the ubiquitous services everywhere on a campus with high security. In order to realize the services, the card has been designed to have 1) a ZigBee module for(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy and safety of aripiprazole versus bupropion augmentation in patients with major depressive disorder (MDD) unresponsive to selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). METHODS This is the first randomized, prospective, open-label, direct comparison study between aripiprazole and bupropion(More)
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune-mediated chronic inflammatory disease. Half of patients with SLE suffer from lupus nephritis, which is major cause of death in SLE. TNF-like weak inducer of apoptosis (TWEAK)/fibroblast growth factor-inducible 14 (Fn14) interactions mediate inflammatory responses that are linked to the pathogenesis of(More)
This study was performed to evaluate the effects of conditioned media (CM) from human amniotic epithelial cells (HAECs) on the corneal wound healing process. Eighteen rabbits (36 eyes) were used and randomly assigned to three groups according treatment: CM from HAECs (group 1), vehicle alone (group 2), and saline (group 3). Corneal alkali injuries were(More)
