The reuse of free and open source software (FOSS) components is becoming more prevalent. One of the major challenges in finding the right component is finding one that has a license that is e for its intended use. The license of a FOSS component is determined by the licenses of its source code files. In this paper, we describe the challenges of identifying(More)
We have reported that a diazepam binding inhibitor (DBI)-like peptide is released by the aversive quinine stimuli 'Chem. Senses 25 (2000) 739'. To determine the effect of DBI on the fluid intake, we injected a DBI peptide fragment into the fourth ventricle in mice. DBI suppressed the intake of 5% sucrose, water and 0.9 mM quinine-HCl and the preference for(More)
BACKGROUND Reports have been accumulating that genetic properties are predictive of clinical response after and/or toxicity during cancer chemotherapy, but little information is available concerning effects on long-term survival. In this study, 49 Japanese patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) were followed up for 5 years after treatment(More)
Using the extracellular recording method, the effects of lidocaine (a local anesthetic known to relieve tinnitus) on discharge of inferior colliculus (IC) neurons of the guinea pig were studied before and after salicylate (200 mg/kg) administration. The salicylate-induced discharge was inhibited by intravenous injection of lidocaine at a concentration (1(More)
The effects of cisplatin (cis-DDP) and transplatin (trans-DDP) on the voltage-dependent calcium current (ICa) of outer hair cells isolated from the guinea pig cochlea were compared using the whole-cell patch-clamp technique. Both cis-DDP and trans-DDP blocked ICa in a concentration-dependent manner. Trans-DDP did not show ototoxicity or nephrotoxicity in(More)
When we reuse a code fragment in an open source system, it is very important to know the history of the code, such as the code origin and evolution. In this paper, we propose an integrated approach to code history tracking for open source repositories. This approach takes a query code fragment as its input, and returns the code fragments containing the code(More)
FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) is repeatedly modified and reused by other FOSS or proprietary software systems. They are released to others under specific licenses whose terms and conditions are usually written on the source-code files as program comments. There are a few researches which automatically analyze the licenses in a FOSS release, but there(More)
—An identifier is an important key in mapping program elements onto domain knowledge for the purpose of program comprehension. Therefore, if identifiers in a program have inappropriate names, developers can waste a lot of time trying to understand the program. This paper proposes a method for extracting and gathering verb-object (V-O) relations, as good(More)
This study demonstrated a simple method of repairing the severed chorda tympani nerve and a method of intraoperative identification of regenerated nerves, and evaluated taste function of regenerated nerves. Seven patients who underwent staged tympanoplasty and whose chorda tympani nerve was severed during primary surgery were evaluated. When the chorda(More)
