To clarify the tolerance and pharmacokinetics of combined therapy with S-1 and trastuzumab in patients with human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-positive metastatic or recurrent breast cancer. From January 2008 through to September 2009, combined therapy with S-1 and trastuzumab was given to 7 patients with HER2-positive metastatic or recurrent(More)
The objective of this study was to examine the association between the immunohistochemical Ki67 labeling index (IHC Ki67), Ki67 mRNA expression level, and first-generation gene signatures in a cohort of breast cancer patients. We assessed associations between IHC Ki67 and first-generation gene signatures in a panel of 39 tumor samples, using an(More)
BACKGROUND While the benefit of passive immunotherapy is commonly accepted, active immunization may have advantages for the patient's quality of life. We identified a new epitope of Mab CH401 against Her-2/neu extracellular domain (N: 167-175), and evaluated the effect of active immunization of the 20mer peptide containing the epitope (CH401 peptide).

OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to assess the safety of S-1 in Japanese in inoperable or recurrent breast cancer patients. METHODS A prospective post-marketing surveillance was performed at 313 sites in Japan in patients with inoperable or recurrent breast cancer treated with S-1. We examined 1361 patients between January 2006 and December 2007(More)
The presence of tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) is associated with favorable long-term outcome in breast cancer. However, little is known about changes in TILs during metastatic progression. To confirm our hypothesis that malignant tumors escape from the host immune system during metastasis, we evaluated the percentage of TILs in paired samples of(More)
BACKGROUND We prospectively compared the diagnostic accuracies of PET/CT and BS in patients with suspected bone metastases from breast cancer. METHODS This single-institution prospective study included consecutive patients with suspected bone metastases from biopsy-proven breast cancer seen at Tokai University Hospital between September 2011 and March(More)
Background: Our previous predictive peptide binding studies indicated that a novel 20-mer multiple antigen peptide, CH401MAP, containing an anti-human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) monoclonal antibody epitope (N163-182), may potentially bind to more than 95% of class I human leukocyte antigens (HLAs) and to 30-50% of class II HLAs expressed on(More)
We report a patient with a giant phyllodes tumor of the right breast associated with a hypoglycemic attack. A 48-year-old woman experienced a loss of consciousness and was transferred via ambulance to our hospital emergency department. Upon arrival, her blood glucose level was 26 mg/dl, and a giant tumor (>20 cm in diameter) with skin ulceration was(More)
Tropomyosin-related kinase B (TrkB) is a functional signal molecule that correlates with cell survival and epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT), which is essential for the invasiveness of malignant cancer cells. While a truncated isoform of TrkB has a dominant negative effect, full-length TrkB with its tyrosine kinase domain is predicted to play a role(More)
