Seven reference strains and 88 new isolates of staphylococci were identified with the API STAPH system (API System S. A., Montalieu Vercieu, France) using a probability matrix (V 2.0) provided by the manufacturer. Of the 88 isolates, 73 were identified to the species level with identification scores of 0.800 (80 % id) or greater. The high success rate (83.0%) was achieved only when the readings of some "borderline reactions (± and ∓) were corrected appropriately according to the data obtained with reference strains.
Two hundreds sixty eight cases of malignant lymphoma provided from Kochi municipal central hospital were investigated histopathologically and immunohistochemicaily. Four different monoclonal antibodies (UCHL-1,MT-1,L26,and MB-1) used in this study were proved to react even in routine paraffin embedded tissues fixed in formalin. Two antibodies, UCHL-1 and MT-1 were found to be effective for T cell lymphoma diagnosis, and the other two were also found for B cell lymphoma diagnosis. In the 268 cases, 79 cases (29.5%) were classified into T cell 'lymphoma, 178(66.4%) into B cell lymphoma and 11 cases (4.1%) into Hodgkin's , disease. High grade malignant cases were most common in T and B cell lymphoma. In particular, T cell lymphoma cases were found to be more frequent in southwestern district, which is also known as ATL endemic area, than the other districts in Kochi prefecture.
Die Aufgabe des zweiten Teils der <Grundlage der gesammten Wissenschaftslehre> Iiegt darin, die Strukur der doppelten Beziehung des Ichs (d. I, die Beziehung des Ichs zu sich selbst und die des Ichs zum Nicht-Ich) aufzuklaren. Nach Fichte ist das Ich nicht das an sich seiende Substrat, sondern die Synthesis selbst der doppelten Beziehungen. Es ist 'Agilitat'. Dieser Gedanke ist fur gegenwartige Philosophie sehr bedeutend, denn Phanomenologie und Existenzphilosophie beschaftigensich mit den Problemen der Intentionalitat und Intersubjektivitat. Daher mussen Forscher, die sich fur diese Probleme interessieren, den klassischen Text Fichtes studieren.
Making English document may be difficult by using a Japanese Word Processor. We found several problems in English document when Japanese College students made English documents by using a Japanese word processor (Fujitsu OASYS 100 N). Most students made some English mistakes because they were unfamiliar with functions of the word processor. In addition, main problems to make English document by using a Japanese word processor are the difference of both languages. The Japanese characters including Kanji (Chinese character) require spaces of double widths of Roman alphabet (English characters). Most Japanese word processors have functions to be necessary for English document, such as word wrap around and justification. However, they do not have an auto-hyphenation function. Owing to the functional difference between Japanese and English word processing, it is difficult to make both English and Japanese in a single document. We recommend to apply some English word processor software in a personal computer with Japanese Front End Processor.
Lecanoric acid of 5 lichen species are investigated by hplc and thin-layer chromatography; Roccella canariensis, Lasallia pensylvanica, Umbilicaria muehlenbergii, U. caroliniana, and Parmelia tinctorum. Species containing lecanoric acid, contain orsellinic acid, and species containing gyrophoric acid contain lecanoric acid and orsellinic acid. Although gyrophoric acid and lecanoric acid are easily decomposed to form orsellinic acid in methanol solution, small amount of orsellinic acid is always present in natural thalli. Biogenetic intermediate substances seem to be present in natural thalli even in small quantities.
Eighty two female students collected their urine, three of urine after rising in the morning and two of 24 hour urine. The concentration of sodium chloride and creatinine were measured in each urine. 1 ) The content of NaCl by the assay of Na^+ strongly corresponded to the content of NaCl by the assay of Cl^- . 2 ) Significant correlation was observed between the NaCl content by the assay of Na^+ and the NaCl content by the assay of salt tape, the correlation coefficient measured by technician were 0.915 in the morning urine and 0.880 in the 24 hour urine. In the case measured by students, these correlation coeficient were 0.754 and 0.653. 3 ) The correlation coefficient between the content of NaCl in the 24 hour urine and the content of NaCl in the morning urine measured by technician was 0.427. In the case measured by students, correlation coefficient was low (r=0.258 (P <0.05)).
