The Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident occurred on March 11 2011, following the Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami. Radioactive materials, including I-131, were released into the environment after the accident. Shortly after, the prefectural government initiated the Fukushima Health Management Survey for monitoring the long-term health conditions of the residents of Fukushima Prefecture. In the survey, thyroid ultrasonography was scheduled for all people aged 18 years or younger who were living in Fukushima Prefecture at the time of disaster. The total number of examinees was approximately 370,000 in the Preliminary Baseline Survey (PBLS), and 380,000 in the first Full-scale Survey (FSS). First, thyroid ultrasonography was performed as the Primary Examination. When a thyroid nodule that meets the fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) guideline is detected, thyroid FNAC is performed. By the end of June 2017, the cytological specimens of 187 examinees had been interpreted as Malignant or Suspicious for Malignancy (SFM). In this article, the cytological results of whole categories are presented using the criteria of The Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology. The total numbers of examinees with SFM or Malignant in PBLS and at the first FSS were 106 (62.0%) and 71 (38.0%), respectively. The data of the cytological results of SFM and Malignant were already reported. However, this is the first report of cytological data from categories other than SFM and Malignant. The results of the current study will contribute to future research into the thyroid conditions of children and adolescents.

Background:Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a common arrhythmia in patients with acute heart failure (AHF). Heart rate (HR) also changes significantly over time. However, the association between changes in HR in AF patients and prognosis is uncertain.Methods and Results:We investigated the association between HR reduction in AF achieved within 48 h of admission and 60-day mortality in patients with AHF from the REALITY-AHF study. The percentage HR (%HR) reduction was calculated as (baseline HR–HR at 48 h) / baseline HR × 100. The primary endpoint was 60-day all-cause mortality. In 468 patients with confirmed AF at both admission and 48 h after admission, the median HR at these time points was 105±31 and 84±18 beats/min, respectively. The median %HR reduction was 15.4% (interquartile range 2.2–31.4%). During the 60 days of admission, 39 deaths (8.3%) were recorded, and the %HR reduction within 48 h was significantly associated with 60-day mortality in the unadjusted model (hazard ratio [HR] 0.85; 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.77–0.95; P=0.005) and after adjusting for other covariates (HR 0.81; 95% CI 0.68–0.96; P=0.016).Furthermore, the %HR reduction was associated with a significant reduction in 60-day mortality in patients with higher baseline HR.Conclusions:%HR reduction is associated with a better short-term prognosis in patients with AHF presenting with AF, particularly in those with a rapid ventricular response.

The Great East Japan Earthquake, which occurred on March 11, 2011, and its subsequent Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident, prompted implementation of the Thyroid Ultrasound Examination (TUE) program as a part of the Fukushima Health Management Survey. The purpose of this program is to support residents of Fukushima Prefecture, and to analyze the health effects of the released radionuclides. Regardless of relatively high participation rates and a well-planned diagnostic flow, it is conceivable that not all thyroid cancer cases can be detected by the TUE program. The aims of the present study were to identify and characterize these “outside” cases, targeting patients at Fukushima Medical University (FMU) Hospital. As of June 30, 2017, we have successfully identified 11 outside cases. These corresponded to 5.7% of the 194 subjects who were identified as having thyroid cancer or suspected thyroid cancer in the TUE program. Although the outside subjects of other institutes were not investigated, the present study may have identified the majority of outside subjects in Japan, considering that FMU Hospital treats a large number of thyroid cancer subjects. Furthermore, the characteristics of the 11 subjects were not different from those of the subjects identified in the TUE program. These findings confirm that the TUE program was able to identify subjects of thyroid cancer adequately and sufficiently.

Background and Aims: Several investigators have reported the significance of circulating galectin-3 in thyroid cancer patients. However, the precise meaning of circulating galectin-3 remains unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationships between serum galectin-3 levels and angiogenetic factors, and nutritional and inflammatory indicators in patients with thyroid cancer. Materials and Methods: Sixty-one patients with thyroid tumors were enrolled, comprising 47 pre-treatment thyroid cancer patients and 14 patients with benign thyroid diseases. Galectin-3, interleukin (IL)-6, vascular endothelial growth factor, granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF), soluble form of intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (sICAM-1), retinol binding protein, prealbumin, albumin, and transferrin were measured. C-reactive protein (CRP), neutrophil count, lymphocyte count, and neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio (NLR) were also investigated. Results: The amounts of circulating galectin-3 in benign disease and thyroid cancer were significantly higher than those of healthy volunteers (P < 0.001). Analysis of galectin-3 performance in distinguishing malignant disease from benign disease using a receiver operating characteristic curve revealed that the area under the curve was 0.555. There were statistically significant correlations between the circulating amount of galectin-3 and IL6, G-CSF, and sICAM-1. Serum galectin-3 showed statistically significant correlations with albumin, prealbumin, and transferrin. Circulating galectin-3 exhibited strong correlations with CRP, neutrophil count, lymphocyte count, and NLR. Conclusions: Galectin-3 may be one of the key factors in the regulation of angiogenesis, inflammation, and nutrition.

After the Fukushima nuclear accident in 2011, there was confusion among the public caused by uncoordinated information about radiation provided by diverse channels. We explored the association between information sources regarding reconstruction progress after the disaster and mental fatigue in Fukushima. We used data from the annual public opinion survey by the Fukushima Prefectural Government on its policies from 2013 to 2015, which contained survey responses from 1,300 community residents randomly selected from the 28 municipalities in the Fukushima Prefecture. The survey contained a question assessing mental fatigue: “How often do you usually feel mentally tired or depressed?” In total, 2,130 participants (758 participants in 2013, 699 participants in 2014, and 673 participants in 2015) were analyzed. The respondents were classified as two categories, “high mental fatigue” and “low mental fatigue,” based on their responses to this question. Overall, the proportion of participants with high mental fatigue was 13.2%. There was no association between the year of survey or occupation and high mental fatigue. Cluster analysis was performed to classify information sources. Then, we conducted a cross-sectional analysis of the associations between clusters of information sources and high mental fatigue. We found that unreliable information sources, such as “Internet” and “a combination of TV, radio, and word of mouth,” were significantly associated with high mental fatigue, compared with reliable information sources, such as “municipal public relations in addition to major media (newspaper, TV, and radio).” These findings provide important insights into how information sources affect mental fatigue following a disaster.

A massive flood, the maximum ever recorded in Thailand, struck the Chao Phraya River in 2011. The total rainfall during the 2011 rainy season was 1,439 mm, which was 143% of the average rainy season rainfall during the period 1982–2002. Although the gigantic Bhumipol and Sirikit dams stored approximately 10 billion m3 by early October, the total flood volume was estimated to be 15 billion m3. This flood caused tremendous damage, including 813 dead nationwide, seven industrial estates, and 804 companies with inundation damage, and total losses estimated at 1.36 trillion baht (approximately 3.5 trillion yen). The Chao Phraya River watershed has experienced many floods in the past, and floods on the same scale as the 2011 flood are expected to occur in the future. Therefore, to prepare of the next flood disaster, it is essential to understand the characteristics of the 2011 Chao Phraya River Flood. This paper proposes countermeasures for preventing major flood damage in the future.

Although the sea otter (Enhydra lutris) is a complete aquatic species, spending its entire life in the ocean, it has been considered morphologically to be a semi-aquatic animal. This study aimed to clarify the unique hindlimb morphology and functional adaptations of E. lutris in comparison to other Mustelidae species. We compared muscle mass and bone measurements of five Mustelidae species: the sea otter, Eurasian river otter (Lutra lutra), American mink (Neovison vison), Japanese weasel (Mustela itatsi) and Siberian weasel (M. sibirica). In comparison with the other four species, E. lutris possessed significantly larger gluteus, popliteus and peroneus muscles, but smaller adductor and ischiopubic muscles. The popliteus muscle may act as a medial rotator of the crus, and the peroneus muscle may act as an abductor of the fifth toe and/or the pronator of the foot. The bundles of the gluteus superficialis muscle of E. lutris were fused with those of the tensor fasciae latae muscle, and gluteofemoralis muscles, and they may play a role in femur abduction. These results suggest that E. lutris uses the abducted femur, medially rotated crus, eversion of the ankle and abducted fifth digit or extended interdigital web as a powerful propulsion generator. Therefore, we conclude that E. lutris is a complete aquatic animal, possessing differences in the proportions of the hindlimb muscles compared with those in other semi-aquatic and terrestrial mustelids.

In-line monitoring of granule water content during fluid bed granulation is important to control drug product qualities. In this study, a practical scale-free soft sensor to predict water content was proposed to cope with the manufacturing scale changes in drug product development. The proposed method exploits two key ideas to construct a scale-free soft sensor. First, to accommodate the changes in the manufacturing scale, the process parameters (PPs) that are critical to water content at different manufacturing scales were selected as input variables. Second, to construct an accurate statistical model, locally weighted partial least squares regression (LW-PLSR), which can cope with collinearity and nonlinearity, was utilized. The soft sensor was developed using both laboratory (approx. 4 kg) data and pilot (approx. 25 kg) scale data, and the prediction accuracy in the commercial (approx. 100 kg) scale was evaluated based on the assumption that the process was scaled-up from the pilot scale to the commercial scale. The developed soft sensor exhibited a high prediction accuracy, which was equivalent to the commonly used near-infrared (NIR) spectra-based method. The proposed method requires only standard instruments; therefore, it is expected to be a cost-effective alternative to the NIR spectra-based method.

11β-Hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (11β-HSD1) behaves predominantly as an oxoreductase converting the receptor-inactive glucocorticoids to their active forms in vivo, while the type 2 isoform (11β-HSD2) possesses only dehydrogenase activity and inactivates cortisol in human or corticosterone in rat. We determined enzyme activity of 11β-HSD in rat lungs from fetus to adult, and examined whether 11β-HSD1 exists in alveolar type II cells, the most important site for the synthesis of pulmonary surfactant in mature lungs, by immunohistochemistry and reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). Enzyme activity of 11β-HSD1 and 2 in lung tissue homogenate were determined as NADP+- and NAD+-dependent conversion of corticosterone to 11-dehydrocorticosterone, respectively. We found that 11β-HSD1 activity was increased progressively from 21 days gestation to 7 weeks after birth. 11 β-HSD2 activity was significantly lower than that of 11β-HSD1 throughout gestation and after birth. Immunoreactivity for 11β-HSD1 was detected in the cytoplasm of the cells in the alveolar region of adult rats. Some of these expressing 11β-HSD1 were considered to be alveolar type II cells, because of their cuboid shape and localization at the corner of the alveoli. RT-PCR demonstrated 11 β-HSD1 mRNA in isolated alveolar type II cells. Our results suggest that alveolar type II cells enhance intracellular glucocorticoid availability via 11β-HSD1. 11β-HSD1 in alveolar type II cells is thought of as an autocrine amplifier of glucocorticoid action in the lung.

A large abdominal mass was found in a dog. Histopathologically, the surface of the mass was covered with compressed adrenal gland tissue. The neoplastic cells showed typical features of malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (MPNST), including Antoni type A and type B pattern, and nuclear palisading. Immunohistochemically, these cells were positive for S100 protein, nerve growth factor receptor, nestin and claudin-1. The dog was euthanized because of the developing multiple metastatic lesions. The metastatic cells showed quite similar histopathological and immunohistochemical features as those in the original tumor. Although MPNST can develop at many body sites, this is the first report of MPNST originating from the adrenal gland in a dog.

High prevalence of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in disaster shelters has been reported in the aftermath of earthquakes in Japan. Calf DVT was examined using sonography in the shelters after the Great East Japan earthquake on March 11, 2011. By the end of July 2011, 701 out of 8,630 evacuees suspected with calf DVT, judged by inspections or medical interviews, were examined in 32 shelters, and 190 evacuees were confirmed to have calf DVT. The prevalence of DVT was 2.20%, which was 200 times higher than the usual incidence in Japan. The DVT prevalence seemed to decrease with time. By the end of May, a significantly higher prevalence of DVT was found in tsunami-flooded shelters (109 of 3,871 evacuees; 2.82%) than in non-flooded shelters (53 of 3,155 evacuees; 1.68%). After June, its prevalence was still higher (18/541; 3.33%) in tsunami-flooded shelters than in non-flooded shelters (10/1063; 0.94%). The cause of the high prevalence of DVT was supposed to be dehydration due to the delay in supplying drinking water, vomiting, and diarrhea experienced by the evacuees because of a shortage of clean water to wash their hands. Dehydration was especially noticed in women because they restricted themselves of water intake to avoid using unsanitary toilet facilities. Moreover, crowded shelters restricted the mobility of elderly people, which would exacerbate the prevalence of DVT. Those deteriorated and crowded shelters were observed in tsunami-flooded areas. Therefore, long-term shelters should not be set up in flooded areas after tsunami.

DHG, a glycosaminoglycan extracted from the sea cucumber is known to show antithrombotic effects in animals and be a possible therapeutic agent for prevention of disseminated intravascular coagulation. In toxicology study, however, dose-dependent intracellular deposition of eosinophilic or basophilic droplets, and crystalloid substances were observed in the proximal tubular epithelial cells of the kidneys when male Sprague-Dawley rats were administered DHG daily for two weeks at the doses of 10, 100, and 200 mg/kg. In contrast to heparin, a glycosaminoglycan that has been reported to induced similar deposits which were identified to be composed of a hemoglobin-like substance using the alizarin red staining. The inclusions observed in rats given DHG were immunohistochemically positive for α2u-globulin. Moreover, the droplets showed metachromasia in toluidine blue staining, and negative for Hall's, Gmelin's, Schmol's tests, and alizarin red staining, but the crystalloids were positive for alizarin red staining. These results suggested that DHG-induced degeneration of proximal tubular epithelial cells in male rats is related to α2u-globulin accumulation.

A 13-year-old, neutered male miniature dachshund was presented with a one-month history of bilateral symmetrical swelling in the pinnae and carpal, cubital and tarsal joints, and swelling in the tail. The lesions were histopathologically characterized by multiple dilated lymphatic vessels lined by a single attenuated layer of endothelial cells. The subcutis was predominantly involved. A number of spindle-shaped cells lining the irregular vessels were observed. Morphological atypia was not evident in these cells. Immunohistochemical analyses revealed that the proliferating endothelial cells were positive for factor VIII-related antigen and CD31. Based on the clinical presentation and histopathological features, the dog was diagnosed with lymphangiomatosis. Treatment with anti-inflammatory prednisolone improved the symptoms.

In this paper, a dynamic impact control is proposed. To deal with an impact phenomenon and to establish the control method, a pendulum-like impact shot system is devised. In this system, a slider strikes a ball suspended by a wire, and the energy of the ball is controlled via impact force from the slider. In order to transmit the energy adequately, it is necessary for a slider to reach the target position with specified velocity just at the moment of collision. The reference trajectory for a slider is generated and adjusted in real time, and the proposed variable structure (VS) servo control enables chattering-free precise tracking to the reference trajectory. Additionally, by combining an adaptive VS-differentiator, the performance of the VS-servo control is enhanced. The effectiveness of the proposed impact control, the VS-servo control and the adaptive VS-differentiator is verified by simulation and experiment.
