Excision repair cross-complementing group 1 (ERCC1) is known to be a key player in nucleotide excision repair (NER) pathway. Its prognostic or predictive relevance has been extensively investigated in cancer patients including non-small-cell lung cancer. However, several questions should be addressed before its clinical application as biomarker for patient(More)
PURPOSE To determine the frequency and investigate possible mechanisms and prognostic relevance of minimal (<10-mm thickness) pleural effusion in patients with small cell lung cancer (SCLC). MATERIALS AND METHODS The single-center retrospective study was approved by the institutional review board of the hospital, and informed consent was waived by the(More)
Objective Nanog, a homeodomain protein, has been investigated in humans and mice using ESCs. Because of the limited availability of ESCs, few studies have reported the function and role of Nanog in porcine ESCs. Therefore, in this study, we investigated the location of the porcine Nanog chromosome and its basal promoter activity, which might have potential(More)
PURPOSE Minimal (< 10 mm thick) pleural effusion (PE) may represent an early phase of malignant PE, but its clinical relevance has rarely been studied. Therefore, we examined the proportion of minimal PE in patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and its impact on survival. We also considered possible accumulation mechanisms in our data set. (More)
Hypercoagulability disorders are commonly encountered in clinical situations in patients with a variety of cancers. However, several hypercoagulability disorders presenting as first symptoms or signs in cancer patients have rarely been reported. We herein described a case of a woman with adenocarcinoma of the lung presenting with deep vein thrombosis,(More)
Heterogeneous radiological responses (HRRs) among tumor lesions are usually observed following chemotherapy or radiation treatment in cancer patients. When HRR is observed after chemotherapy or radiation treatment, a change in anticancer treatment is recommended due to the clinically high suspicion of resistance in the majority of cases. The present study(More)
