Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are microvesicles secreted from various cell types. We aimed to discover a new biomarker for high Gleason score (GS) prostate cancer (PCa) in urinary EVs via quantitative proteomics. EVs were isolated from urine after massage from 18 men (negative biopsy [n = 6], GS 6 PCa [n = 6], or GS 8-9 PCa [n = 6]). EV proteins were labeled(More)
To evaluate the clinical and histopathological effects of presurgical treatment with sunitinib on inferior vena cava (IVC) tumor thrombus. Between 2010 and 2014, we treated seven patients with renal cell carcinoma and IVC tumor thrombus presurgically with sunitinib. We retrospectively evaluated primitive tumor size, the level of tumor thrombus according to(More)
BACKGROUND We investigated the association between the R.E.N.A.L. nephrometry score (RNS) and the postoperative recurrence of localized renal cell carcinoma (RCC). METHODS We retrospectively analyzed a database comprising 91 patients with non-small localized RCC (pT1b-T2b) treated by radical nephrectomy at our hospital from January 2002 to March 2010. RNS(More)
Fucosylation is an important oligosaccharide modification associated with cancer and inflammation. We investigated whether urinary fucosylated PSA (Fuc-PSA) levels could be used for the detection of high Gleason score prostate cancer. Urine samples were collected from men with abnormal digital rectal examination findings or elevated serum PSA levels, before(More)
