Body mass decrease after initial gain following smoking cessation. (1/13041)

BACKGROUND: Although smoking cessation is strongly associated with subsequent weight gain, it is not clear whether the initial gain in weight after smoking cessation remains over time. METHOD: Cross-sectional analyses were made, using data from periodic health examinations for workers, on the relationship between body mass index (BMI) and the length of smoking cessation. In addition, linear regression coefficients of BMI on the length of cessation were estimated according to alcohol intake and sport activity, to examine the modifying effect of these factors on the weight of former smokers. RESULTS: Means of BMI were 23.1 kg/m2, 23.3 kg/m2, 23.6 kg/m2 for light/medium smokers, heavy smokers and never smokers, respectively. Among former smokers who had smoked > or = 25 cigarettes a day, odds ratio (OR) of BMI >25 kg/m2 were 1.88 (95% confidence interval [CI] : 1.05-3.35), 1.32 (95% CI : 0.74-2.34), 0.66 (95% CI: 0.33-1.31) for those with 2-4 years, 5-7 years, and 8-10 years of smoking cessation, respectively. The corresponding OR among those who previously consumed <25 cigarettes a day were 1.06 (95% CI: 0.58-1.94), 1.00 (95% CI: 0.58-1.71), and 1.49 (95% CI: 0.95-2.32). CONCLUSIONS: The results suggest that although heavy smokers may experience large weight gain and weigh more than never smokers in the few years after smoking cessation, they thereafter lose weight to the never smoker level, while light and moderate smokers gain weight up to the never smoker level without any excess after smoking cessation.  (+info)

The prevalence of Balantidium coli infection in fifty-six mammalian species. (2/13041)

A total of 375 fecal samples of 56 mammalian species belonging to 17 families of 4 orders were examined for the detection of Balantidium coli from December 1994 to August 1995. As a result, B. coli was found from 6 species belonging to 4 families of 2 orders (Primates and Artiodactyla) of host animals examined. White-handed gibbon (Hylobates lar), squirrel monkey (Saimiri sciurea) and Japanese macaque (Macaca fuscata) were new hosts for B. coli. All the wild boar (Sus scrofa) and chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) examined were positive. The highest number of B. coli was obtained from a chimpanzee (1,230/g feces). No B. coli was detected from the animals of orders Rodentia and Carnivora including dogs and cats. The rarity of B. coli infection in breeding animals in Japan. suggests that there is no serious problem in controlling infections.  (+info)

First report of Thelazia sp. from a captive Oriental white stork (Ciconia boyciana) in Japan. (3/13041)

Nematodes of the genus Thelazia were recovered from the cornea and inferior conjunctival sac of an immature Oriental white stork (Ciconia boyciana). The bird hatched and reared at the Toyooka Oriental White Stork Breeding Center, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan, but died of chlamydiosis. There were neither gross nor histopathologic ophthalmic lesions. The eye worm from a bird is believed to be first reported in Japan. As regarding reintroduction plan for the Oriental white stork, control measures for prevent further infection with the eye worm will be needed.  (+info)

CAG repeat length in the androgen receptor gene of infertile Japanese males with oligozoospermia. (5/13041)

We analysed the CAG repeat length in exon 1 of the androgen receptor gene in 59 idiopathic Japanese infertile males with oligozoospermia; 36 fertile males were also analysed as controls. The number of CAG repeats in infertile males ranged from 14 to 32 (mean 21.2+/-4.2), whereas the number of CAG repeats in fertile males ranged from 16 to 31 (mean 21.4+/-3.5). Among infertile males, six possessed a short form of 14 CAG repeats and three possessed 15 CAG repeats. On the other hand, fertile males did not possess the short form of 14 or 15 CAG repeats. The incidence of infertile males with 14 and 15 CAG repeats was significantly higher (P<0.05) than that of fertile males. Although the sample size is small, the results suggest that the reduction of CAG repeats in exon 1 of the androgen receptor is closely related to impaired spermatogenesis in infertile Japanese males.  (+info)

An epidemiological study on the association between the total leukocyte and neutrophil counts, and risk factors of ischemic heart disease by smoking status in Japanese factory workers. (6/13041)

Several epidemiologic studies have shown the association between total leukocyte count and the risk of developing myocardial infarction. The purpose of this study was to assess the association between the total leukocyte and neutrophil counts and risk factors of ischemic heart disease in 1,384 Japanese factory workers. Total leukocyte and neutrophil counts were significantly higher in current smokers than in non-smokers. Among current smokers, the total leukocyte and neutrophil counts were positively associated with the number of cigarettes smoked daily and the duration of cigarette smoking and alcohol consumption. Being independent of smoking habit, the total leukocyte and neutrophil counts were also related to several characteristics recorded at the physical examinations. The total leukocyte and neutrophil counts were positively associated with serum total cholesterol, serum triglyceride and hematocrit levels, and inversely associated with the serum HDL-cholesterol level. No significant associations of the total leukocyte or neutrophil counts were found with the red blood cell count and hemoglobin level. These results suggest that the total leukocyte and neutrophil counts may represent the metabolic condition with a high coronary risk among apparently healthy people.  (+info)

A historical cohort mortality study of workers exposed to asbestos in a refitting shipyard. (7/13041)

To investigate the risks of developing asbestos-related diseases we conducted a historical cohort mortality study on 249 ship repair workers (90 laggers and 159 boiler repairers) in a single U.S. Navy shipyard in Japan. We successfully identified the vital status of 87 (96.7%) laggers and 150 (94.3%) boiler repairers, and, of these, 49 (56.3%) and 65 (43.3%) died, respectively, during the follow-up period from 1947 till the end of 1996. Our in-person interviews with some of the subjects clarified that asbestos exposure was considered to be substantially high in the 1950-60s, decreased thereafter gradually but remained till 1979 in the shipyard. The laggers, who had handled asbestos materials directly, showed a significantly elevated SMR of 2.75 (95% C.I.: 1.08-6.48) for lung cancer. The risk developing the disease was greater in the laggers after a 20-year latency (SMR = 3.42). Pancreatic cancer yielded a greater SMR than unity (7.78, 90% C.I.: 2.07-25.19) in a longer working years group. Four laggers died from asbestosis. The boiler repairers, who had many chances for secondary exposure to asbestos and a few for direct exposure, showed no elevation of the SMR of lung cancer overall, but there was a borderline statistically significant SMR of 2.41 (90% C.I.: 1.05-5.45) in a longer working years group. One boiler repairer died from mesothelioma and four from asbestosis.  (+info)

Relationship between glycosylated hemoglobin and the prevalence of proteinuria in Japanese men. (8/13041)

A total of 5,174 Japanese men were included in a cross-sectional study to examine the relationship between the glycated hemoglobin (HbA1C) level and the prevalence of proteinuria as determined using a reagent strip. The prevalence of proteinuria rose significantly at HbA1C levels above 5.9%, whereas no relationship was observed at HbA1C levels below 5.9%. Multiple logistic regression analysis showed that blood pressure and a family history of diabetes were independent factors associated with proteinuria in subjects with a HbA1C below 5.9% who were not under medication for diabetes. In contrast, HbA1C, obesity and smoking were associated with proteinuria in subjects who were under medication for diabetes and/or have a HbA1C above 5.9%. These findings suggest that maintaining a HbA1C level below 5.9%, non-smoking and a standard body weight may reduce the prevalence of proteinuria in Japanese men. Healthy life-style and standard body weight are especially important for subjects with a family history of diabetes.  (+info)

Results Mean follow-up duration was 10.7 years. Cut-off levels of Lp(a) for tertiles were 10 mg/dl and 23 mg/dl. Risks for all stroke were 1.34 (95% CI 1.03 to 1.74) and 1.00 (95% CI 0.77 to 1.31) in the lower and the higher Lp(a) group, respectively, with reference to the middle group after adjustment for age, smoking status, drinking status, systolic blood pressure, and body mass index. Risks for cerebral haemorrhage (lower tertile 2.25, 95% CI 1.28 to 3.94 and higher tertile 0.93, 95% CI 0.49 to 1.77), were similar to all stroke and no significant relationships were seen between Lp(a) and cerebral infarction (lower tertile 1.15, 95% CI 0.83 to 1.60 and higher tertile 1.02, 95% CI 0.74 to 1.41),or subarachnoid haemorrhage (lower tertile 1.04, 95% CI 0.52 to 2.09 and higher tertile 0.96, 95% CI 0.48 to 1.90). ...
GSK2190915 is currently in development for the treatment of asthma. This study aims to assess the safety and tolerability of single doses of GSK2190915 in healthy Japanese subjects. The study will also look at the pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) of single doses of GSK2190915 and aims to characterise the PK/PD relationship in healthy Japanese subjects. Twelve healthy Japanese subjects will take part in this single escalating dose study and subjects will receive one of five possible treatments, 10 mg, 50 mg, 150 mg, 450 mg GSK2190915 or placebo in each treatment period.

Located near the center of the Japanese main island of Honshu, Aichi Prefecture faces the Ise and Mikawa Bays to the south and borders Shizuoka Prefecture to the east, Nagano Prefecture to the northeast, Gifu Prefecture to the north, and Mie Prefecture to the west. It measures 106 km east to west and 94 km south to north and forms a major portion of the Nōbi Plain. With an area of 5,153.81 km2 it accounts for approximately 1.36% of the total surface area of Japan. The highest spot is Chausuyama at 1,415 m above sea level. The western part of the prefecture is dominated by Nagoya, Japans third largest city, and its suburbs, while the eastern part is less densely populated but still contains several major industrial centers. Due to its robust economy, for the period from October 2005 to October 2006, Aichi was the fastest growing prefecture in terms of population, beating Tokyo, at 7.4 per cent. As of April 1, 2012, 17% of the total land area of the prefecture was designated as Natural Parks, ...
In a prospective study of a general Japanese population, we clearly demonstrated that elevated HbA1c levels, even in the prediabetic range, were a significant risk factor for the development of CVD, especially for CHD and ischaemic stroke, in a general Japanese population. These associations remained robust even after controlling for comprehensive confounding factors. Furthermore, adding the HbA1c value to the confounding factors significantly improved the predictive ability for total CVD. These findings are important in that they indicate HbA1cs value for predicting the long-term risk of CVD in Japanese.. Some clinical and population-based cohort studies have shown that increased HbA1c levels were positively associated with the risks of CVDs and mortality [6-11, 20-25]. In the present study, the risks of CHD and ischaemic stroke were significantly or marginally higher even in the subjects with HbA1c levels of ≥5.5% compared with those with HbA1c levels of ≤5.0%. There has been controversy ...

The current study provided a unique opportunity to investigate a more elderly Japanese population (versus the previous cohort studies), and determine the prevalence of early and late AMD in the elderly Japanese population of Hatoyama.2-4 The prevalence of late AMD in the current study appears to be comparable with those reported in other Japanese cohorts, although the small number of cases in each study limits any comparisons. Additionally, comparison of background characteristics between targeted sample and recruited samples was not impossible and thus, we could not justify the representativeness and generalizability of the prevalence of both early and late AMD, which also limits our study. However, the age-specific prevalence of early AMD in the current study is like to be higher than that reported in other Japanese cohorts, although it was similar to that reported in the Singapore Malay Eye Study.10 Therefore, caution should be exercised when comparing our standardized AMD prevalence to ...

A magnitude 5.7 earthquake and a magnitude 4.6 quake rattled central Japan on Monday afternoon, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.
Japan is the fastest ageing society on earth and the first large country in the history to have its population start shrinking rapidly from natural causes. The life expectancy of Japanese people (mean age: men, 79.4 years; women, 85.9 years) is at the highest level in the world. The population of Japan, which currently stands at 127 million, is expected to fall to just under 100 million in the next 40 years. By 2050, 4 of 10 adults in Japan will be older than 65 years of age. Japan implemented the national social long-term care insurance (LTCI) system on 1 April 2000. Every Japanese person aged 65 and older is eligible for benefits based strictly on physical and mental frailty or disability.1 In June 2006, the Japanese government implemented a major LTCI reform that focused on preventive benefits for the population at high risk of disability (ie, physical and/or cognitive frailty), to contain the skyrocketing costs of the LTCI.2. Physical frailty increases with advancing age and is a major risk ...

Abstract: Takedaite, Ca3B2O6, has been found in crystalline limestone near gehlenite-spurrite skarns at Fuka, Okayama Prefecture. It occurs as aggregates of granular crystals up to 0.8 mm long and 0.3 mm wide. The mineral is associated with nifontovite, olshanskyite, pentahydroborite, frolovite, sibirskite, calcite and an unidentified mineral, is white or pale gray, and has a vitreous luster. Takedaite is trigonal with space group of R3¯c, a = 8.638(1), c = 11.850(2)Å, Z = 6. The strongest lines in the X-ray powder pattern [d in A(I)(hkl)] are 2.915(100)(113), 1.895(75)(223), 2.756(61)(104), 2.493(44)(300), 2.044(21) (214,131), 2.160(19)(220), 1.976(18)(006), 1.549(12)(306).

In the present study, the relationship between LDL-C and BMI was investigated in a large sample of population-based Japanese schoolchildren. It was found that LDL-C measured using the direct method for fourth-grade boys and girls was 90.0 and 95.0 mg/dL, respectively, whereas for seventh-grade boys and girls the values were 86.0 and 93.0 mg/dL. These results were similar to those in previous studies using the direct measurement of LDL-C [15, 16]. Moreover, in our study, LDL-C level was significantly higher in girls than in boys for both grades (P , 0.001). These results were consistent with previous nationwide reports among Japanese children [9, 15]. The sex difference in the results may be explained in part by the influence of hormones on LDL-C among children [23, 24]. Additionally, in our data, BMI was significantly higher in boys than in girls regardless of grade (P , 0.05). The previous study reported that sex differences in body composition are present very early in life, and are primarily ...

In 1996 the Okinawa Prefectural Government drew up an Action Program for the return of US bases in Okinawa. It called for the return of US bases in 3 stages to achieve an Okinawa free of military bases by the year 2015. In December 1996, after 12 months of study and consultations, the governments in Tokyo and Washington and their representatives on the Special Action Committee on Okinawa produced their final report concerning the return of US military base properties on the island. The United States agreed to return to Japanese control about 21 percent of the land on Okinawa used for US military bases, adjust training and operational procedures, implement noise abatement procedures, and change Status of Forces Agreement procedures. Often called the Galapagos of the East , Okinawa encompasses a vast diversity of life including 400 species of coral and more than 1,000 species of reef fish, marine mammals and sea turtles. The east coast of Okinawa supports approximately 1,205 ha of seagrass in ...
Venue. Osaka is located on the main island of Honshu, roughly in the center of Japan. Osaka City, which was incorporated in 1889, has a population of 2.5 million and an area of 221 square kilometers.

We used the residential postal codes of pregnant women who delivered at Kyushu University Hospital and compared the pollutant concentrations measured at the nearest monitoring station to Kyushu University Hospital with those measured at the nearest monitoring stations to the respective residential regions. Hospital-based and residence-based concentrations of PM2.5 and Ox were similar, and the percentage differences of hospital-based and residence-based SPM concentrations were around 6.5%.. As expected, most pregnant women lived a short distance from their delivery hospital, with 40% of women residing near the Yoshizuka monitoring station, which was the nearest station to Kyushu University Hospital in Fukuoka city, and 84% of women being assigned pollutant concentrations measured either at the Yoshizuka station or at one of the other four monitoring stations in Fukuoka city. Among women aged 15-49 years who resided in Fukuoka Prefecture, roughly 35% resided in Fukuoka city [14], a relatively low ...
To compare asthma treatment in children between Europe and Japan, we made 4 model cases of children with asthma. The questionnaire-based surveys were conducted at the 2007 annual meeting of the ERS held in Stockholm and at the 40th annual meeting of the Japanese Society of Pediatric Pulmonology. We selected 3 pediatric asthma sessions at the ERS meeting and 86 European respondents (72%) were pediatricians (Table 1), whereas all of the Japanese respondents were pediatricians. Although there were also some other differences in characteristics of respondents between European countries and Japan (Table 1), we did not divide them into subgroups because the number of them was too small.. Because some doctors chose several answers for each question, a scoring system was introduced. This questionnaire-based survey using model cases was useful and showed the differences in the treatment of children with asthma between Europe and Japan. In general, ICSs were selected more in Europe than in Japan, and LTs ...

In our study, we found that the intake of isoflavones, miso soup, and soy food was not clearly associated with overall colorectal cancer in either men or women. However, the risk of proximal colon cancer in men decreased with increasing consumption of isoflavones, miso soup, and soy food. In contrast, we found no association for distal colon or rectal cancer in men or women. To our knowledge, this is the first cohort study to investigate the association between a large variety of dietary soy foods and isoflavone intake and the risk of colorectal cancer, including anatomic subsites in a general population. These findings suggest that the intake of isoflavones, miso soup, and soy food may not be associated with the risk of colorectal cancer in Japanese men and women.. These epidemiologic findings for dietary soy and isoflavone intake and colorectal cancer risk are partially consistent with the results of a previous cohort study (14) in women, four case-control studies in men and women combined (9, ...

Night sleep duration of Japanese children aged 10-18 y has become shorter by one hour during the last 30 years in Japan [1]. The so called 24-hour society, which is currently in progress in Japan, seems to change environmental conditions surrounding children. For example, mobile phones are used by more than 90 % of university students and more than 30% of junior high school students living in the urban area of Kochi city (33°N) [2]. Students can communicate with their colleagues even in the middle of the night with mobile phones. Frequent or long-time (more than 30 min) usage of the mobile phone makes university and junior high school students more evening-typed [2].. Convenience stores are open for 24 hours and provide several kinds of food and other goods for general civilian life. Convenience stores are now common all over Japan even in suburban areas. Illumination inside the convenience stores is very bright (2000 lux or more at the level of the eyes). Bright lighting in retail stores ...

RERF is monitoring mortality and cancer incidence in persons born between May 1946 and December 1984 to the Life Span Study (LSS) survivors. As of 2007, cohort members ranged in age from 23 to 61, with a mean age of 47 years. To date, there has been no evidence of increased cancer incidence or increased mortality from cancer or other diseases either up to age 20 or after age 20. Much longer follow-up is needed to reach any conclusions regarding the effects of parental A-bomb exposure on disease occurrence, since most of the disease occurrence in this cohort is still in the future. The Table shows recent summaries of mortality data for this F1 cohort ...

Japan Table of Contents Although the Japanese economy is largely based on private enterprise, it does have a number of government-owned (public) corporations, which are more extensive and, in some cases, different in function from what exists in the United States. In 1988 there were ninety-seven public corporations, reduced from 111 in the early 1980s as a result of administrative reforms. Public companies at the national level were normally affiliated with one of the economic ministries, although the extent of direct management and supervision varied. The government divided the national-level corporations into several categories. The first included the main public service and monopoly corporations: Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation, Japanese National Railways, and Japan Tobacco and Salt Corporation. However, Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation was privatized in 1985, and the Japanese National Railways in 1987, and Japan Tobacco and Salt Corporation in 1988. The second category ...

Why is it important to have your chlorella product tested and passed by the Japan Food Research Laboratories is a good question.. The Japanese Government has the highest standards in the world for testing and certifying the purity of chlorella.. Chlorella manufacturers are not able to sell their product in Japan without first passing the Japanese governments strict protocol.. The most important part of the test is for heavy metal content. The results of this part of the testing is why less than 10 manufacturers of chlorella worldwide out of 100s of chlorella manufacturers are authorized to sell their chlorella products in the Japanese marketplace.. When the Japanese government tests for heavy metals a maximum of 20 parts per million of any of the following heavy metals is allowed.. Arsenic. Cadmium. Mercury. Aluminum. Since a limit of 20 parts per million is allowed the above heavy metals can be published as Not Detected by chlorella manufacturers who Pass the Japanese standards and are ...
In addition, a clinical health study of about 12,000 individuals was conducted between 2002 and 2006 with a focus on lifestyle diseases, based on the idea that adulthood is when disorders from radiation effects may develop. In this study, possible relationships between parental exposure and a combination of six multifactorial diseases (e.g., diabetes and hypertension) were analyzed, taking into consideration such lifestyle habits as drinking and smoking. The results showed no evidence at this time of increased risk of these multifactorial diseases among the target individuals. However, given that the subjects were still young at the time of the health examinations, with an average age of 48.6, it would be desirable to continue the clinical health study of this fixed cohort ...

Single status was associated with a higher risk of mortality than was married status for both men and women. Divorce and widowhood were associated with elevated risk for men, but not for women. These findings suggest single, divorce and widowhood status constitute potentially adverse health effects.
The patients anxiety state is augmented more by disclosure of disease labeling, or diagnosis from the physician at a general checkup than by a simple notification of abnormal values. Excluding the effects of potential confounding variables such as anxiety traits or depressive states associated with personality and types of lifestyle-related diseases also led to similar results. Additionally, even with mild deviations in the abnormal test values, disease diagnosis disclosure elicited an anxiety state in patients. Despite these results, improvements in daily life behavior due to the perception of abnormality notification or diagnosis disclosure were not observed one month after the general checkup. The results of the present study showed that, even in a general checkup for the general population, disclosing non-critical diseases such as lifestyle-related diseases exacerbated anxiety as a short-term psychological impact.. Anxiety state is thought to be affected by many factors. In particular, ...
Typhoon Phanfone barreled into southern Japan at about 8 a.m. local time on Oct. 6 (11 p.m. Universal Time on Oct. 5). The category 1 storm made landfall in Shizuoka Prefecture with maximum sustained winds of about 80 miles per hour. Phanfone dumped 19 inches of rain in the mountainous region of Shizuoka Prefecture. At one point during the storm, rain fell in Shizuoka-the capital city of the prefecture-at a record-rate of 3.4 inches per hour. The 667,000 people living in the prefecture were urged to evacuate to safer ground. The intense rain and resulting runoff led to sediment plumes in Suruga Bay, visible in the natural-color image (top) acquired Oct. 6 by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASAs Aqua satellite.. less ...
Adiponectin is an adipocyte-specific protein that plays a role in obesity, insulin resistant, lipid metabolism, and anti-inflammation. Hypoadiponectinemia may be associated with a higher risk for type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Some studies suggest that adiponectin levels are modulated by lifestyle factors, but little is known about the associations between lifestyle factors and plasma adiponectin levels in Japanese people. We therefore investigated the associations between lifestyle factors and plasma adiponectin levels in general Japanese men. The subjects were 202 Japanese male workers who participated in an annual health check. They provided details about anthropometrical data, blood collection, their use of prescribed medication, and the clinical history of their families. They also completed a self-administered questionnaire about their lifestyles. Subjects with plasma adiponectin levels below 4.0 μg/ml had significantly lower levels of HDL cholesterol and higher levels of BMI, SBP,
a 6.7 magnitude earthquake hit Nagano prefecture in Japan, destroying more than 40 residences, severely cracking roads, and injuring dozens of people.
It has been well known for some time that radiation can induce aberrations in the chromosomes of exposed cells. The frequency of occurrence of such aberrations increases with radiation dose, and certain kinds of aberrations persist throughout life, so the frequency of chromosome aberrations in human blood lymphocytes can be a useful indicator of the radiation dose received by the body. The cytogenetics program has studied chromosome aberrations in a subset of atomic-bomb survivors who participate in the Adult Health Study via several methods. Classical Giemsa staining allows one to visualize the chromosomes through a microscope and can detect about 2/3 of all chromosome aberrations. An extensive chromosome study using this traditional staining method was also conducted on about 16,000 children born to A-bomb survivors ...
Decreased nitric oxide (NO) availability due to obesity and endothelial dysfunction might be causally related to the development of lifestyle-related diseases such as insulin resistance, ischemic heart disease, and hypertension. In such situations, instead of impaired NO synthase (NOS)-dependent NO generation, the entero-salivary nitrate-nitrite-NO pathway might serve as a backup system for NO generation by transmitting NO activities in the various molecular forms including NO and protein S-nitrosothiols. Recently accumulated evidence has demonstrated that dietary intake of fruits and vegetables rich in nitrate/nitrite is an inexpensive and easily-practicable way to prevent insulin resistance and vascular endothelial dysfunction by increasing the NO availability; a NO-rich diet may also prevent other lifestyle-related diseases, including osteoporosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and cancer. This review provides an overview of our current knowledge of NO generation through the
