Fumihito Ito, MD, PhD

[Japanese version]

Dr. Fumihito Ito joined our department as a graduate student in October 2015 and earned a PhD in medicine degree in March 2020. Dr. Ito was born in 1981 and has lived in Chiba Prefecture. Dr. Ito graduated from Fukushima Medical University, Faculty of Medicine and earned a MD degree in 2007.

Dr. Ito worked as an anesthesiology and emergency physician in Fukushima Prefecture. In the past, he has participated in several multicenter registries for emergency and intensive care, including severe sepsis registry in the Tohoku region. That opportunity motivated him to analyze these data from a variety of angles. While looking for a way to learn the methodology of such analysis, he discovered and enrolled in the Department of Clinical Epidemiology, Graduate School of Medicine, Fukushima Medical University. During his graduate student years, his research on traffic trauma caused by occupants of cars had enough impact on Japan to attract the attention of both newspapers and healthcare media. Dr. Ito will definitely continue to contribute to healthcare through delivery of clinical research.

    車はエンジンの位置の違いにより、「鼻のある」ボンネット型と、「鼻のない」キャブオーバー型のトラックおよびワゴンに分けられます。正面衝突事故で救急搬送された軽自動車の乗員943名を対象としたコホート研究により、四肢骨盤が重症化する可能性は、ボンネット型と比較して、トラックの場合に調整オッズ比で2.2倍、ワゴンの場合に3.4倍高くなることが明らかとなりました。また、頭部頸部が重症化する可能性は、ボンネット型と比較して、トラックの場合に調整オッズ比で2.0倍高くなることもわかりました。大学院生の伊藤 文人先生と一緒に主指導教員が研究を着想し、解析論文化を指導しました。福島県にも還元しうる知見を得ました。太田西ノ内病院の篠原一彰先生、救急医で交通外傷に詳しい堤悠介先生、福原先生のお蔭でもありますため、筆頭著者・主指導教員ともにこの機会を頂いたことに大変感謝しております
