To examine the association of plant-based food intakes with CVD and total mortality among Japanese. In the Japan Collaborative Cohort Study for Evaluation of Cancer Risk, 25 206 men and 34 279 women aged 40–79 years, whose fruit, vegetable and bean intakes were assessed by questionnaire at baseline in 1988–90, were followed for 13 years. Deaths from total stroke, stroke subtypes, CHD and total CVD, according to the International Classification for Diseases 10th Revision, were registered. During ...

Progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) and corticobasal degeneration (CBD) are often clinically confused with each other. Moreover, the discrepancy between clinical and pathological diagnoses of CBD and PSP are still controversial. We report here two atypical cases of PSP and CBD. A 73–yearold woman was admitted with right hand rigidity, limb kinetic apraxia and cortical sensory loss. Brain atrophy, hypoperfusion and hypometabolism predominantly in the left frontoparietal lobes indicated CBD clini...

BACKGROUND: We have been conducting a cohort study named "the Japan Collaborative Cohort Study (JACC Study) for Evaluation of Cancer Risk sponsored by the Ministry of Education, Science, Sports and Culture of Japan (Monbusho)" since 1988. The aim of this paper is to describe the mortality of our JACC cohort in the follow-up period from 1988 through 1999, to compare it with the mortality, especially cancer deaths, of the Japanese population in the same period and to compare the causes of mortalit...

Stroke patients who underwent computed tomography (CT) were enrolled in a stroke registry in Akita, Japan, which comprised 7288 first-ever stroke cases during 1999 to 2001. Differences in age and sex were evaluated with respect to type-specific incidences and lesion sites. The incidence increased with age, except for subarchnoid hemorrhage (SAH) in men after age 40. The incidence of intracerebral hemorrhage (IH) and cerebral infarction (CI) was higher in men than in women, whereas that for SAH w...

Background The relationship between abdominal visceral fat accumulation and lacunar infarcts has not been previously investigated in Japanese men. Methods and Results The subjects were 637 middle-aged (40-64 years) and 222 elderly (65-79 years) men who participated in a health checkup program from 1999 to 2003. The association between lacunar infarcts identified by magnetic resonance imaging and cardiovascular risk factors, including abdominal visceral fat accumulation evaluated by computed tomo...

Abstract A role of deletion ( D )/insertion ( I ) polymorphism in angiotensin converting enzyme ( ACE ) gene or A/C polymorphism in angiotensin II type 1 receptor ( AT 1 R ) gene polymorphism on ischemic stroke or leukoaraiosis were assessed in 129 Japanese ischemic stroke patients and 27 normal control subjects. Ischemic stroke patients were divided into three groups, including lacunar, atherothrombotic and cardio-embolic infarction. Leukoaraiosis was assessed with the grade of periventricular ...

Abstract Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DWI) is a sensitive diagnostic tool for detecting recent ischemic lesions in patients with transient ischemic attacks (TIAs), but the interpretation of the presence or absence of DWI abnormalities in TIA patients still remains controversial. To elucidate the pathophysiology underlying those lesions, we analyzed DWI abnormalities in patients with recent TIAs. Based on 45 consecutive patients with TIAs who underwent DWI within 10 days of onse...
