The Japan Neurosurgical Database: Overview and Results of the First-year Survey. Neurol Med Chir (Tokyo). 2020 Mar 31;: Authors: Iihara K, Tominaga T, Saito N, Suzuki M, Date I, Fujii Y, Hongo K, Houkin K, Kato A, Kato Y, Kawamata T, Kim P, Kinouchi H, Kohmura E, Kurisu K, Maruyama K, Mikuni N, Miyamoto S, Morita A, Nakase H, Narita Y, Nishikawa R, Nozaki K, Ogasawara K, Ohata K, Sakai N, Sakamoto H, Shiokawa Y, Sonoda Y, Takahashi JC, Ueki K, Wakabayashi T, Yamamoto T, Yoshida K, Kayama T, Arai H, Japan Neurosurgical Society Abstract The Japan Neurosurgical Database (JND) is a prospective observational study registry established in 2017 by the Japan Neurosurgical Society (JNS) to visualize real-world clinical practice, promote science, and improve the quality of care and neurosurgery board certification in Japan. We summarize JND's aims and methods, and describes the 2018 survey results. The JND registered in-hospital patients' clinical data mainly from JNS training institutions in 2018. Caseload, patient demographics, and in-hospital outcomes of the overall cohort and a neurosurgical subgroup were examined according to major classifications of main diagnosis. Neurosurgical caseload per neurosurgeon in training in core hospitals in 2018 was calculated as an indicator of neurosurgical training. Of 523,283 cases (male 55.3%) registered from 1360 participating institutions, the neurosurgical subgroup comprised of 33.9%. Among the major classifications, cere...

Authors: Noda A, Sakai T, Obara T, Miyazaki M, Tsuchiya M, Oyanagi G, Murai Y, Mano N Abstract BACKGROUND: There are no reports on investigations of the characteristics of adverse drug reaction (ADR) reports for pediatric patients in the Japanese Adverse Drug Event Report database (JADER) and the utility of database for drug safety surveillance in these patients. METHOD: We aimed to evaluate ADR reports for pediatric patients in the JADER. We used spontaneous ADR reports included in the JADER since April 1, 2004, to December 31, 2017, which was downloaded in April 2018. In a total of 504,407 ADR reports, the nu...

ConclusionThese data establish that [89Zr]anti-CD11b Ab immunoPET targets CD11b+ cells (TAMCs) with high specificity in a mouse model of GBM, demonstrating the potential for non-invasive quantification of tumor-infiltrating CD11b+ immune cells during disease progression and immunotherapy in patients with GBM.

Authors: Tomiyama H, Shiina K Abstract The brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (brachial-ankle PWV), which is measured simply by wrapping pressure cuffs around the four extremities, is a simple marker to assess the stiffness of the medium- to large- sized arteries. The accuracy and reproducibility of its measurement have been confirmed to be acceptable. Risk factors for cardiovascular disease, especially advanced age and high blood pressure, are reported to be associated with an increase of the arterial stiffness. Furthermore, arterial stiffness might be involved in a vicious cycle with the development/progression o...

AbstractBackgroundCombination therapy of interferon and ribavirin has traditionally been used to eradicate hepatitis C virus. The sustained virologic response achieved with interferon-related therapy is persistent, and late relapses after achieving sustained virologic response at 24  weeks using this therapy are reportedly rare (

AbstractIndocyanine green (ICG) excretory defect is characterized by an ICG retention rate of more than 50% at 15  min without any other abnormal liver functions. The incidence of ICG excretory defect is 0.007% in the Japanese population. Due to its rarity, the imaging characteristics associated with ICG excretory defect remain unclear. Herein, we present three cases of ICG excretory defect, which showed impai red lesion detectability on gadoxetic acid-enhanced MR imaging (EOB-MRI). In the hepatobiliary phase (HBP) of EOB-MRI, diminished enhancement of the liver parenchyma, prolonged intravascular enhancement, and att...

CONCLUSION: The results suggest the limited relevance of the "retired husband syndrome" among middle-aged Japanese couples. The effects of a husband's retirement on the wife's mental health depended heavily on her prior behavior. PMID: 32448823 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Diabetes has been associated with metabolic disorder, insulin resistance and neuroinflammation. However, the pathogenesis for HFD-induced injury of central nervous system (CNS) is still unclear. Tripartite Motif Containing 13 (TRIM13), also known as RFP2, is a member of TRIM proteins, and is associated with multiple cellular processes, such as apoptosis, survival and inflammation. However, the effects of TRIM13 on brain injury, especially the HFD-induced CNS damage, have not been investigated. To address this issue, the TRIM13flox/flox (fl/fl) mice were produced and then crossed them with Nestin-Cre mice ...
