health-related quality of life (hrqol) in japanese osteoporotic patients and its improvement by elcatonin quality of life (hrqol; "qol" hereafter) was evaluated in japanese osteoporotic patients using three questionnaires; the sf-36 (mos 36-item short-form health survey; generic, profile-type), the eq-5d (euro qol-5 dimensions; generic, preference-based), and the joqol (japanese osteoporosis quality of life 1999; disease-targeted). the eight subscales and two summary scores of the sf-36 were impaired in these patients even after correction for age and sex. the scores on the eq-5d and ...200515750696
genetic diversity of mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates from foreign-born and japan-born residents in tokyo.sequences of the full genomes of 259 clinical isolates of mycobacterium tuberculosis, obtained from foreign-born and japan-born patients in tokyo, japan, were determined, and a phylogenetic tree constructed by concatenated single-nucleotide polymorphism (snp) sequences. the 259 isolates were clustered into four clades: lineage 2 (east asian or "beijing" genotype; n = 182, 70.3%), lineage 4 (euro-american, n = 46, 17.8%), lineage 1 (indo-oceanic, n = 23, 8.9%), and lineage 3 (east african-indian, ...201525595707
