Tadao Shimamura, Hiroshi Bando, Shinji Nagahiro, Miwako Nakanishi and Osami Watanabe

Abstract

Case: The case is 86-year-old male hypertensive patient with anti-hypertensive drug for 5 years. He has been provided Amlodipine besilate 5mg at 0800h and doxazosin mesylate 2mg at 2300h for long. In June 2020, he noticed unstable fluctuation of Blood Pressure (BP) during morning, afternoon and night. Results: Then, he checked the circadian

Abstract

The combination of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) and Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) has been a crucial problem. NAFLD means wide from Hepatic Steatosis (HS) to Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH). NAFLD may be the predictor of causing Cardiovascular Disease (CVD). A dynamic association is found between NAFLD and Hepatic Insulin Res

Abstract

As to the development of treatment for diabetes, Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) has been recently prevalent rapidly. By the analysis of real-time CGM, Ambulatory Glucose Profile (AGP) has been used. It includes time in range (TIR, 70-180 mg/dL), time above range (TAR, >181mg/dL), time below range (TBR, <69 mg/dL), Glycemic Variabilit

Mitochondrial DNA Diversity of the Nangan Islanders Living in the Mazu Archipelago of the Taiwan Strait

Zong-Sian Chen, Jean Trejaut, Jun-Hun Loo, Ying-Hui Lai, Jin-Yuan Huang and Marie Lin

Abstract

This study investigates the genetic relationship of the Mazu peoples on the east coast of China in the Taiwan Strait. Using partial and complete mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequences, we compare Mazu with surrounding East Asia populations. Mazu shows no exclusive affinities with either Southeast or Northeast Asia. High genetic diversity and a ver

Abstract

Microbes generally attach to surfaces and produce an Extracellular Polymeric Substance (EPS) matrix. The exopolysaccharide production plays a role in biofilm protection against environmental stress factors. Biofilm-forming bacteria exhibit different physiological properties in their response to environmental influences compared with their planktoni
