OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to correlate sonographic and mammographic findings with prognostic factors in patients with node-negative invasive breast cancer. METHODS Sonographic and mammographic findings in 710 consecutive patients (age range 21-81 years; mean age 49 years) with 715 node-negative invasive breast cancers were retrospectively(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to determine the relative accuracies of mammography, sonography, MRI and clinical examination in predicting residual tumour size and pathological response after neoadjuvant chemotherapy for locally advanced or inflammatory breast cancer. Each prediction method was compared with the gold standard of surgical(More)
AIMS To investigate KAI1 and survivin expression in infiltrating ductal carcinomas, and to evaluate the relationship between clinicopathological factors and KAI1 and survivin expression levels in breast cancers. METHODS AND RESULTS KAI and survivin expression levels were measured in 62 patients, using immunohistochemical staining. Western blot analysis(More)
e11582 Background: Serum Her-2/neu has been known as molecular surrogating marker of predicting treatment response in Her-2 positive breast cancer. We compare the change of serum Her-2/neu during neoadjuvant chemotherapy between trastuzumab(H) and anthyracyline(A) based treatment. METHODS All breast cancers were tested by immunohistochemical stain and(More)
In the present study, we visualize ultrafast carrier dynamics in one-dimensional nanoscale devices, such as Si nanowire and carbon nanotube transistors using femtosecond photocurrent microscopy. We investigate transit times of ultrashort carriers that are generated near one metallic electrode and subsequently transported toward the opposite electrode based(More)
Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) remains one of the leading causes of death worldwide, and thus new molecular targets need to be identified to improve treatment efficacy. Although epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)/KRAS mutation-driven lung tumorigenesis is well understood, the mechanism of EGFR/KRAS-independent signal activation remains elusive.(More)
We determined the carrier diffusion lengths in nanoporous layers of dye-sensitized solar cells by using scanning photocurrent microscopy. The diffusion lengths were found to be 60-100 μm for the conventional cells. In addition, we found a correlation between the carrier diffusion lengths and the cell efficiency, which proved that improvement in the(More)
We demonstrate that high-field terahertz (THz) pulses trigger transient insulator-to-metal transition in a nanoantenna patterned vanadium dioxide thin film. THz transmission of vanadium dioxide instantaneously decreases in the presence of strong THz fields. The transient THz absorption indicates that strong THz fields induce electronic insulator-to-metal(More)
10610 Background: Recently, adjuvant AC followed by paclitaxel has improved disease-free survival (DFS) or overall survival (OS) of node-positive breast cancer. Although adjuvant TAC, as compared with FAC, significantly improves DFS and OS rate in node-positive breast cancer, AC→T has not been yet compared with FAC. Since 2001, we discussed the options of(More)
We performed time-domain terahertz (THz) spectroscopy on reduced graphene oxide (rGO) network films coated on quartz substrates from dispersion solutions by spraying method. The rGO network films demonstrate high conductivity of about 900 S/cm in the THz frequency range after a high temperature reduction process. The frequency-dependent conductivities and(More)
