Twenty-four patients (19 males and 5 females) with acute leukemia, chronic myelogenous leukemia, and malignant lymphoma underwent allo-BMT. The(More)
Secondary vaccine failure (SVF) of measles is generally believed to run a milder course of illness than an ordinary course of infection. Severe complications such as central nervous system involvement have rarely been reported. A 12 year old girl, who had received a live attenuated measles vaccine 10 years earlier, developed an encephalomyelitis in the(More)
A cyclic bisurea derivative 2a has been successfully prepared from the corresponding diamine and diisocyanate in the presence of tetrabutylammonium chloride as a template. A more soluble cyclic bisurea 2b has also been prepared by introduction of sterically bulky tert-butyl groups. X-ray crystal analyses of [2a·Cl](-) and [2b·Cl](-) revealed that overall(More)

Thirty-one patients with apical invasive lung cancer, who underwent surgical therapy were analyzed. In the patients with palpable nodal metastases in the supraclavicular region, the lymph nodes were dissected through a collar incision in supine position after thoracotomy. In the patients without palpable nodes, the supraclavicular nodes were dissected(More)
