Abstract : BACKGROUND: Fenitrothion (MEP) is the most frequent cause of organophosphate pesticides (OP) poisoning in Japan, but clinical parameters to predict its severity remain uncertain. METHOD: We evaluated 26 cases (12 males and 14 females) of MEP poisoning brought to our critical care center. Regarding acute lung injury (ALI) as a hallmark complication leading to poor recovery, we divided patients into two groups: cases without ALI (Grp1, n = 14), and cases who developed ALI (Grp2, n = 12) at various points after the poisoning. Serial changes in clinical parameters and laboratory test results were compared between them. RESULTS: The median MEP concentrations on arrival (min~max) for Grp1 and Grp2 were 2.3 (0.5-5.1) and 4.6 (1.1-14.0) mug/ml, respectively. Serum pseudo-cholinesterase (PChE) levels on arrival were 21(< 10-59) U/L in Grp1 and < 10 in Grp2. Based on individual patient kinetics, we estimated MEP concentration at 2 and 24 hours after ingestion, and determined cutoff values for differentiating the two groups for each time point as 4.0 mug/ml and 0.5 mug/ml, respectively. By logistic regression analysis, two groups were distinguished with accuracy of 92.3% based on their time of arrival after ingestion and initial MEP concentration. Clinical parameters associated with ALI were days with miosis, days with PChE below 100 U/L, and days requiring administration of atropine. CONCLUSION: The severity of MEP poisoning is closely associated with both time to presentation after ingestion and initial MEP concentration. Serial monitoring of MEP concentrations in the first 24 hours is also useful in predicting the clinical course.

Abstract : As a base for human transcriptome and functional genomics, we created the "full-length long Japan" (FLJ) collection of sequenced human cDNAs. We determined the entire sequence of 21,243 selected clones and found that 14,490 cDNAs (10,897 clusters) were unique to the FLJ collection. About half of them (5,416) seemed to be protein-coding. Of those, 1,999 clusters had not been predicted by computational methods. The distribution of GC content of nonpredicted cDNAs had a peak at approximately 58% compared with a peak at approximately 42%for predicted cDNAs. Thus, there seems to be a slight bias against GC-rich transcripts in current gene prediction procedures. The rest of the cDNAs unique to the FLJ collection (5,481) contained no obvious open reading frames (ORFs) and thus are candidate noncoding RNAs. About one-fourth of them (1,378) showed a clear pattern of splicing. The distribution of GC content of noncoding cDNAs was narrow and had a peak at approximately 42%, relatively low compared with that of protein-coding cDNAs.
