Isolation and exploitation of minority: Game theoretical analysis.

We investigate various group-size distributions occurring in a situation where each group's resource is exposed to appropriation by other groups. The amount of appropriation depends on the size difference between groups. Our work focuses on the cases where the entire community isolates a small group or even an individual to maximize its gain. While people's basic motivation to form a group can be understood based on the group-size effect on multiplying a collective asset, sensitive factors that induce a asy...


Reply to readers (Manuscript ID: HEP-18-1297).

In our preliminary experiment, we divided patients into 3 groups, 10 patients in each group. Group A received standard medicine treatment (SMT) only. Group B was treated with allogeneic bone marrow-derived MSCs (BM-MSCs) every week for 4 weeks, at a dosage of 1x10 per Kg. For Group C the dosage of BM-MSCs was 10x10 per Kg. No significant difference was found in the levels of liver functions and 24 week survival rate between Group B and Group C (data not published). This may be related with the peripheral ve...

Characteristics of 2017 GOLD COPD group A: a multicenter cross-sectional CAP study in Japan.

The 2017 GOLD ABCD classification shifts patients from groups C-D to A-B. Group A was the most widely distributed group in several studies. It would be useful to understand the characteristics for group A patients, but little has been reported concerning these issues.


Appearance of large scavenger receptor A-positive cells in peripheral blood: A potential risk factor for severe exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Fresh peripheral blood (PB) samples from 432 outpatients with stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) were examined. Patients were classified into Group A (large SRA cells were undetected) and Group B (large SRA cells were detected) and followed-up for 1 year. Patients were further subdivided according to Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) stage. Cox proportional hazard model had shown that Gold, Group, home oxygen therapy (HOT), and treatment were significant predicto...

Comparison of Congenital Malformations among Babies Born after Administration of Letrozole or Clomiphene Citrate for Infertility Treatment in a Korean Cohort.

Major congenital anomaly rate was 2.4% (2/83) in the l...

The apoptotic effects of bisphenol A exposure on the rat ovary: an experimental study.

Bisphenol A (BPA) is a key endocrine-disrupting chemical (EDC) in the manufacturing industry. It is found in the structure of compounds such as polycarbonate and epoxy in combination with other chemicals. Our objective was to investigate the effect of BPA on rat ovaries. A total of 32 female rats were divided into four equal groups: In group 1 (control), vehicle was administered; in group 2, BPA 50 μg/day was administered intraperitoneally; in group 3, BPA 100 mg/kg/day was administered intraperitoneally...

Lamina cribrosa morphology in glaucomatous eyes with hemifield defect in a Korean population.

To compare regional variations in lamina cribrosa (LC) curvature and depth between healthy eyes (Group 1) and naïve eyes with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) having superior (Group 2), inferior (Group 3), and both (Group 4) hemifield retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) defects.

Ostracism drives group moralization and extreme group behavior.

Sharing beliefs, particularly moral beliefs, is a way to establish social connections. We hypothesized that ostracism leads people who are high in the need to belong to adhere to the moral beliefs of an ingroup, and that moralizing the beliefs of one's group increases the willingness to endorse extreme behavior on behalf of the group. Across two studies, participants were ostracized or included, rated the moral relevance of their group values, and indicated their endorsement of extreme behavior on behalf of...

The Importance of Structure and Connection for People Living With Schizophrenia: A 33-Year Outpatient Group Experience.

This paper evaluates an outpatient group for persons living with schizophrenia. Qualitative changes and psychiatric admissions among group members were reviewed to measure recovery. Thirty-two members have attended sessions for up to 28 years. Meaningful interactions (e.g., supportive comments) have increased and hospitalizations have decreased. The support of the therapists and the other group members has allowed for personal recovery and developing and maintaining social connections. Prior to starting th...

Post-MI treatment with G-CSF and EPO-liposome with SLX repairs infarcted myocardium through EPCs mobilization and activation of prosurvival signals in rabbits.

We investigated whether combination therapy of G-CSF and erythropoietin (EPO)-liposome with Siaryl Lewis X (SLX) is more cardioprotective than G-CSF or EPO-liposome with SLX alone. For the purpose of generating myocardial infarction (MI), rabbits underwent 30 minutes of coronary occlusion and 14 days of reperfusion. We administered saline (control group, i.v.,), G-CSF (G group, 10 μg/kg/day × 5 days, i.c., starting at 24 hours after reperfusion), EPO-liposome with SLX (LE group, i.v., 2500 IU/kg E...

Stability of anti-A blood group titers among blood group B renal transplant candidates.

As deceased donor kidney allocation is based in part on blood type compatibility, group B candidates are disadvantaged due to their disproportionate representation on the wait list compared to the group B donor pool. To mitigate this discrepancy, group B candidates can receive group A or A B donor kidneys if their anti-A titers are below a predetermined cutoff. Currently, eligibility is reverified quarterly to UNet based on individual center protocols, which can vary due to a lack of set guidelines for moni...

Mechanical Augmentation With Absorbable Alginate Sheet Enhances Healing of the Rotator Cuff.

For anatomical restoration of a repaired rotator cuff, mechanical augmentation of the repaired structure is essential. Using histological and biomechanical evaluation in a rat model, the authors sought to determine the efficacy of an absorbable alginate sheet at the supraspinatus tendon-to-bone repair site for healing of the rotator cuff tear. Forty adult (12 weeks old) male Sprague- Dawley wild-type rats were used in this study. The animals were randomly separated into 2 groups: group 1, conventional supra...

Fresh and frozen ovarian cortex fragments (OCF) from 14 patients (29 ± 6 years old), sized 20-210 mm were randomly distributed into four treatm...

Antibacterial defense and sperm quality in boar ejaculates.

The aim of the present study was to characterize the lysozyme concentration and the bacterial killing activity (BKA) of boar seminal plasma against E. coli and S. aureus in 119 fertile Pietrain boars (aged: 18.1 ± 10.5 months). Lysozyme concentration was 2.4 ± 1.2 μg/ml in seminal plasma. More than 80% of the samples (97 of 119) showed BKA against E. coli or S. aureus or both bacterial strains: Group 1 (BKA against E. coli and S. aureus, n = 38), Group 2 (BKA against E. coli, n = 13), G...

Massively parallel and multiplex blood group genotyping using next-generation-sequencing.

Thirty-six blood group systems are listed by the International Society of Blood Transfusion, containing almost 350 antigens. Most of these result from a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP). Serology is the standard method for blood group typing. However, this technique has some limitations and cannot respond to the growing demand of blood product typing for a large number of antigens. Here we describe a blood group genotyping assay directly from whole blood samples using Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS), a...
