Abstract Background Little is known in the difference of host factors between intestinal and gastric anisakiasis. The aim of this study was to investigate the associated factors of intestinal anisakiasis in patient's characteristics and the subsequent variation compared to gastric anisakiasis. Methods At St. Luke's International Hospital in Tokyo, Japan, a retrospective cohort study was conducted from April 2004 to June 2017. All adult patients who were clinically diagnosed as anisakiasis based ...
Abstract Background Limited attention has been paid to the relationship between bladder dysfunction and motor disorder in multiple system atrophy (MSA). Objective We aimed to correlate pressure-flow urodynamic parameters with video-gait analysis parameters in MSA. Methods We recruited 34 patients with MSA: 20 men, 14 women; age 64.0 + − 7.9 years; disease duration 2 years (1–4 years). Nineteen cases had the cerebellar form, and 15 had the parkinsonian form; the patients were taking levodopa 300 ...

Abstract Objective Several studies have shown relationship between the lower urinary tract dysfunction (LUTD) and atherosclerosis. However, no study is available to see which LUTD relates more to atherosclerosis, among detrusor overactivity and post-void residual. In order to answer this question, we present data of urodynamic and atherosclerosis tests. Methods We performed standard urodynamics and two atherosclerosis tests, i.e., a cardio-ankle vascular stiffness index (CAVI) test and a duplex ...

Abstract While advanced age is a main prognostic factor in patients with tuberculosis, the factors that specifically affect tuberculosis-related death are unclear because elderly people are at a risk for other age-related lethal diseases. We aimed to assess the impact of performance status on tuberculosis-related death among elderly patients with lung tuberculosis. Elderly patients (≥65 years of age) admitted to our hospital for bacteriologically-diagnosed lung tuberculosis were included, and an...

Abstract Background Glycemic variability has been suggested to be related to some unfavorable outcomes, but malignancy development has not been evaluated. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association of glycemic variability with malignancy development among the population without diabetes. Methods We conducted a retrospective cohort study at a large teaching hospital in Tokyo, Japan, from 2005 to 2016. We included all participants without diabetes who underwent voluntary health check-up...

Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is a rare genetic disorder. Although the genetic tests and new diagnostic algorithms have recently been recommended, clinical signs and electron microscope (EM) findings have historically been the mainstays of diagnosis in Asia. To characterize PCD previously reported in Japan, we conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis. A search using MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Japana Centra Revuo Medicina (in Japanese) databases was carried out to identify articles reporting ...

Objectives To determine the optimal HbA1c test interval strategy to detect new type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) cases among healthy population, stratified by age and body mass index (BMI). Methods Markov models were built to study the optimal screening interval for new cases of T2DM among each age- and BMI-stratified health population. Age was stratified into 30–44, 45–59, and 60–74 year age groups and BMI was also stratified into underweight ( Results The HbA1c test interval to detect T2DM in a ...

Abstract Objectives Sleep and diet are important lifestyle factors for maintaining health. Although previous studies have suggested that sleep quality may be associated with specific nutrient and food intakes, the relationship between nutritional adequacy and sleep quality remains unclear. The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between sleep quality (insomnia symptoms) and adequate nutrient intake among Japanese adults. Design Cross-sectional. Setting Nationwide population sur...
Abstract Background Anti-synthetase syndrome (ASS) is characterized by the presence of anti-aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase antibody and ASS-associated interstitial lung disease (ILD) often recurs. The effectiveness of remission induction therapy with corticosteroids and calcineurin inhibitor (CNI) and the predictive factors for ASS-ILD recurrence were examined. Methods We retrospectively identified consecutive patients with ASS-ILD treated with corticosteroids and CNI during 2006–2017 and evaluated t...
