The purpose of the present study was to investigate the frequency of BRAF mutations in human papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) and Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) and to evaluate the association of the BRAF mutation with the clinicopathological features of both of these thyroid disorders. A total of 51 PTC with no HT, 28 PTC with HT and 27 HT with no PTC were(More)
BACKGROUND The RET/PTC-RAS-BRAF cascade is associated with papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). OBJECTIVE The relationship between PTC and Hashimoto's thyroiditis (HT) is still elusive. To determine whether thyrocytes showing oxyphil cell metaplasia in HT also express RET, RAS, and ERK proteins, which are associated with PTC. DESIGN We investigated the(More)
Sclerosing hemangioma (SH) of the lung is an uncommon type of tumor, which is composed of polygonal and cuboidal cells. This disease is generally regarded as benign but extremely rare cases with lymph node metastasis have been reported. We report a case of SH with a metastasis to the regional lymph nodes. A 19-year-old girl presented with a 2-year history(More)
Hepatomegaly and liver dysfunction might develop in patients with diabetes mellitus due to glycogen deposition or nonalcoholic steatohepatitis. We experienced a case of hepatic glycogenosis in a patient with type 1 diabetes mellitus who presented with recurrent hypoglycemia, suggesting impairment of glycogenolysis and gluconeogenesis. A 10-year-old girl(More)
AIMS Wilms' tumour-1 (WT-1) encodes a transcription factor originally identified as a tumour suppressor gene, whose mutations are responsible for tumorigenesis of Wilms' tumour. The overexpression of WT-1 has been demonstrated in variable tumours. In this study, WT-1 immunoreactivity was explored in 97 gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GISTs). METHODS The(More)
A reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification (RT-LAMP) assay for visual detection of European (EU) and North American (NA) porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome viruses (PRRSVs) were established and evaluated with reference PRRSV strains and clinical samples. The assay was performed in two reaction tubes containing each set of(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the feasibility of using covered stents vs. bare stents in a model of central vein stenosis with an arteriovenous graft created to mimic the conditions in hemodialysis patients. METHODS In 7 mongrel dogs, an expanded polytetrafluoroethylene-covered nitinol stent was placed in one common iliac vein and a bare stent was placed in the(More)
