Primary neuroendocrine carcinoma of the breast (NECB) is a very rare type of invasive breast carcinoma. Most NECBs appear on breast imaging as solid masses of varied shapes and margins, and have worse clinical outcomes than does invasive ductal carcinoma, not otherwise specified. However, there have been no reports to date regarding NECB with features of… (More)
Conceptually, every temporal relationship can be described using one of seven relations ('before', 'meets', 'overlaps', 'during', 'starts', 'finishes', and 'equals'). This conceptual representation provides an efficient means for designing an overview of a multimedia presentation. We developed a collaborative authoring system for multimedia presentation,… (More)
experiments lead us to conclude that our system is more advantageous than traditional multimedia authoring systems in terms of authoring time and ease of interaction.
Dear Editor, Contrary to the majority of acute conjunctivitis cases, chronic conjunctivitis can be caused by infection or inflammation of the lacrimal duct system, conjunctival in-traepithelial neoplasm, floppy eyelid syndrome, and immu-nologic reaction [1,2].

To confirm a hybrid swarm population of Pinus densiflora × P. sylvestris in Jilin, China, we used needles and seeds from P. densiflora, P. sylvestris, and P. densiflora × P. sylvestris collected from natural stands or experimental stations to study whether shoot apex morphology of 4-year old seedlings can be correlated with the sequence of a chloroplast DNA… (More)
Aberrant TGF-β1 signaling is suggested to be involved in gastric carcinogenesis. However, the role of TGF-β1 in intestinal-type [i-GC] and diffuse-type [d-GC] gastric cancer remains largely unknown. In this study, we evaluated the expression of TGF-β1 signaling molecules and compared the clinicopathological features of i-GC and d-GC. Patients (n=365,… (More)
