    Department of Health Science, Shiga University of Medical Science, Seta, Otsu, Japan
    Int J Epidemiol 28:1059-65. 1999
    ..This paper describes incidence rates and case-fatality for sub-types of stroke using data collected in Takashima, Shiga, Japan, from 1989 to 1993 and compares these with similar registers in other parts of Japan...
  2. doi request reprint Morning surge in circadian periodicity of ischaemic stroke is independent of conventional risk factor status: findings from the Takashima Stroke Registry 1990-2003
    T C Turin
    Shiga University of Medical Science, Shiga, Japan
    Eur J Neurol 16:843-51. 2009

  3. doi request reprint Is there any circadian variation consequence on acute case fatality of stroke? Takashima Stroke Registry, Japan (1990-2003)
    T C Turin
    Department of Health Science, Shiga University of Medical Science, Shiga, Japan
    Acta Neurol Scand 125:206-12. 2012
    ..However, it is unclear whether this variation affects the acute stroke case fatality. Time of the day variation in stroke case fatality was examined using population-based stroke registration data...
  4. ncbi request reprint Different effects of blood pressure on mortality from stroke subtypes depending on BMI levels: a 19-year cohort study in the Japanese general population--NIPPON DATA80
    N Miyamatsu
    Department of Health Science, Shiga University of Medical Science, Otsu, Japan
    J Hum Hypertens 19:285-91. 2005
    ..The effects of diastolic blood pressure on intracerebral haemorrhage and infarction had the same tendency as those of SBP. These results suggested that the causal effect of blood pressure on stroke subtypes might be modified by BMI...

    Int J Obes (Lond) 30:1163-5. 2006
    ..The Japanese men had a larger VAT and VSR in each stratum, despite substantially less obesity overall. In multiethnic studies, difference in abdominal fat distribution should be considered in exploring factors related to obesity...

    T Okamura
    Department of Health Science, Shiga University of Medical Science, Seta tsukinowa cho, Otsu City, Shiga 520 2192, Japan
    J Intern Med 253:169-80. 2003
