The total mass of islets of Langerhans is reduced in individuals with type 2 diabetes, possibly contributing to the pathogenesis of this condition. Although the regulation of islet mass is complex, recent studies have suggested the importance of a signaling pathway that includes the insulin or insulin-like growth factor-1 receptors, insulin receptor(More)
Hepcidin has recently been recognized as a hormone essential to the negative regulation of iron. Synthesis of hepcidin is increased by iron overload or inflammation, and decreased by iron deficiency, anemia and erythropoietin. Dialysis patients frequently suffer the effects of both hepcidin increasing and decreasing factors. In this study, we investigated,(More)

A 60-year-old man complaining of black stool, body weight loss, and anemia, was examined and diagnosed with advanced gastric cancer (M, type 3, por 2, cT3, cN3, cH0, cP0, cM0, cStage IV). A poor prognosis was predicted, yet we tried neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) expecting downstaging of the tumor. Considering the efficacy and safety, we chose S-1+CDDP as(More)
Although venous thrombosis is one of the common complications in nephrotic patients, cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) is rarely reported. CVT is so difficult to be detected by conventional diagnostic methods that it is sometimes overlooked despite its potential severity. We report a 79-year-old female with nephrotic syndrome due to systemic amyloidosis who(More)
