Civil procedure in Japan by Takaaki Hattori( )

16 editions published between 1983 and 2018 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The only book of its kind available in English, Civil Procedure in Japan is the utmost reliable and comprehensive reference on Japanese civil procedure law. In this time of economic and cultural globalization, the knowledge of any foreign procedural system is in great demand by practitioners, judiciaries and academics outside of the jurisdiction. The need for a reputable reference book in English on Japanese civil procedure is particularly acute because of the position Japan occupies in today's world and the general inaccessibility to the non-Japanese of Japanese language materials. In 1996, the Japanese Code of Civil Procedure underwent total amendment and the new Code went into effect on January 1, 1998. As a result, the work has been extensively rewritten and revised to produce the new and improved Third Edition. Fifteen individual chapters describe the world of Japanese legal profession and the Judiciary and set forth the basic concepts involved in the judiciary authority and its interface with other governmental authorities. The trial process is traced from beginning (parties to action and pre-commencement preparation) through enforcement of judgment

Investigation of the Role of Bacteria in the Development of Acanthamoeba Keratitis( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Purpose: Recently, much interest has been shown in bacteria extracted from Acanthamoeba strains isolated from patients with Acanthamoeba keratitis (AK). We hypothesized that the bacteria in Acanthamoeba strains may be a contributing factor in the development of AK. To prove this hypothesis, we investigated the involvement of bacteria harbored by Acanthamoeba in causing progressive ocular infection in rabbit corneas. Methods: One Acanthamoeba strain (T4 genotype) that harbored bacteria was isolated from a patient with AK. The Acanthamoeba strain pretreated or not pretreated with levofloxacin (LVFX) was inoculated into rabbit corneas. We also tested the effect of LVFX eye drops on keratitis induced by the Acanthamoeba strain. The infected rabbit eyes were evaluated for clinical scores, Acanthamoeba 18S rDNA and bacterial 16S rDNA numbers were analyzed by the real-time polymerase chain reaction, and the presence of Acanthamoeba was analyzed by histological examination. Results: Inoculation of nonpretreated Acanthamoeba resulted in severe keratitis. In contrast, inoculation of LVFX-pretreated Acanthamoeba did not induce keratitis (mean clinical score, 17.3 vs. 2.3; P < 0.05). Rabbit corneas inoculated with nonpretreated Acanthamoeba followed by topical LVFX therapy developed severe keratitis. In corneas inoculated with nonpretreated Acanthamoeba followed by LVFX therapy, the number of Acanthamoeba 18S rDNA copies was significantly higher than in other groups ( P < 0.05), whereas the bacterial 16S rDNA gene was undetectable. Acanthamoeba cysts were detected by Fungiflora Y staining only in corneas inoculated with nonpretreated Acanthamoeba followed by LVFX therapy. Conclusions: These results suggest that the presence of bacteria in Acanthamoeba may be required for the development of AK. Abstract : Supplemental Digital Content is Available in the Text

Clinical Characteristics and Bacteriological Profile of Moraxella Keratitis( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Purpose: Moraxella species are rare causative pathogens of severe sight-threatening keratitis. The aim of this study was to analyze the clinical presentation, predisposing risk factors, in vitro antimicrobial susceptibility, and treatment associated with Moraxella keratitis. Methods: We retrospectively reviewed 30 culture-proven cases of Moraxella keratitis from multiple centers in Japan. Results: The mean age of the patients was 58.4 ± 23.4 years. The most common ocular conditions were contact lens wearing (5 patients, 16.7%) and trauma (3 patients, 10.0%). Seven patients had diabetes mellitus. Sixteen patients exhibited hypopyon in association with the corneal focus. Ring-shaped infiltration was found in 9 patients (30.0%), and irregular or amoebic-shaped infiltration was observed in 13 patients (43.3%). Eight patients (26.7%) showed small round infiltrates. All Moraxella isolates were sensitive to fluoroquinolones and aminoglycosides. All were treated with a combination ophthalmic solution containing a fluoroquinolone, tobramycin, and cefmenoxime. Although no patients developed corneal perforation, the response to treatment was slow in all cases; the mean treatment period was 41.9 days. Conclusions: In Japan, Moraxella keratitis occurs in patients with contact lens wear, trauma, and diabetes mellitus. It presents as a small, round, ring-shaped, irregularly shaped, or amoebic-shaped focus. Moraxella species exhibit good susceptibility to fluoroquinolones and aminoglycosides. Because the treatment response may be very slow, these agents should be continued for a long period of time

Number of Bacteria and Time of Coincubation With Bacteria Required for the Development of Acanthamoeba Keratitis( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Purpose: We hypothesized that bacteria may be a factor contributing to the development of Acanthamoeba keratitis (AK). We investigated interactions between Acanthamoeba and Pseudomonas aeruginosa for the development of keratitis in rabbit corneas. Methods: Acanthamoeba castellanii (ATCC50492) and P. aeruginosa (PAO-1) were used. Two densities of P. aeruginosa (high, 1 × 10 8 /mL; low, 3 × 10 5 /mL) and 2 durations of coincubation (long, 6 h; short, 2 h) of Acanthamoeba with 1 × 10 8 /mL of P. aeruginosa were tested. Acanthamoeba alone or Acanthamoeba coincubated with P. aeruginosa was inoculated into rabbit corneas. After inoculation, levofloxacin (LVFX) eye drops were administered. The clinical score of the cornea was evaluated after inoculation. Results: Acanthamoeba alone did not produce keratitis during a 5-day observation period. Rabbit corneas inoculated with Acanthamoeba coincubated with low-density P. aeruginosa followed by topical LVFX were clear with few infiltrates. Corneas inoculated with Acanthamoeba coincubated with high-density P. aeruginosa followed by LVFX treatment developed severe keratitis, and clinical scores were significantly higher compared with high-density P. aeruginosa alone followed by LVFX treatment (scores 7, 9.6, 8.5 vs. 3, 3.5, 3.25 on days 1–3, all P < 0.01). The long (6 h) coincubation time of Acanthamoeba with high-density P. aeruginosa resulted in more severe keratitis compared with short (2 h) coincubation (scores, 9.7, 12.7, 12.1, 9.8, 8.7 vs. 7, 9.6, 8.5, 6.9, 5.6 on days 1–5, all P < 0.01). Conclusions: These results suggest that the presence of bacteria is essential and a critical number of bacteria is required for the development of AK. The time of coexistence with bacteria may be an important determinant of the severity of AK. Abstract : Supplemental Digital Content is Available in the Text
