BACKGROUND The incidence of testicular carcinoma in the United States has increased significantly over the last two decades. Germ cell tumors form the majority of malignant testicular tumors. With advances in diagnosis and therapeutic approaches, germ cell tumors are now highly sensitive to treatment, providing long-term survival. It has been speculated(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect and investigate the putative mechanism of botulinum toxin type A (BTA) applied to the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). A total of 52 patients with symptomatic BPH were evaluated. Transperineal intraprostatic injection under transrectal ultrasonography was carried out. BTA dissolved in 4 to(More)
Ureteroscopic lithotripsy using Swiss Lithoclast was performed in 411 cases from January 1996 to September 2007 in a single hospital. Medical records of 341 cases, in which Swiss Lithoclast was successfully applied, were available for this retrospective study. We used 9.5Fr and 10Fr Storz rigid ureteroscopes. A success was defined as being free of(More)
Following injection of bacteria into the hemocoel of the fall webworm, Hyphantria cunea, several inducible genes were identified and characterized using PCR-based differential display (DD-PCR) and subtractive cloning. Ten immune-related cDNA clones (Hdd1, Hdd2, Hdd3, Hdd11, Hdd13, Hdd15, Hdd17, Hdd23, Hs106, Hs302) were isolated and characterized. The(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate stone diameter and ureteral dilation using computerized tomography as a predictor of ureteral stone expulsion after medical expulsive therapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the records of 328 patients with symptomatic ureteral stones <10 mm on axial computerized tomography images, who were treated with alpha(More)
Purpose. To determine the effect of simple use of suppository povidone-iodine on infectious complications after transrectal ultrasonography-guided biopsy of the prostate. Methods. All 481 patients are included and received antibiotic prophylaxis. Among them, 360 patients received povidone-iodine suppository (Gynobetadine; 200 mg) immediately prior to biopsy(More)
BACKGROUND To describe a preparatory protocol for prostate biopsy consisting of prophylaxis based on a third-generation cephalosporin and suppository-type povidone-iodine. METHODS From January 2004 to May 2012 we reviewed infective complications in 1,684 patients who underwent transrectal ultrasound (TRUS)-guided prostate biopsy. All of the patients(More)
Arabadopsis dynamin-like (ADL) 2, a member of the high-molecular weight (M(r)) dynamin family found in Arabidopsis, has been shown to be targeted to the plastid. In the chloroplast, most of the ADL2 was present in the fraction containing the envelope membranes when analyzed by suborganellar fractionation. Sucrose gradient and gel filtration experiments(More)
Two kinds of cDNA clones encoding prophenoloxidases (ProPO; zymogen of phenoloxidase (monophenol, L-dopa: oxygen oxydoreductase, EC 1.14.18.1)) were isolated by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) followed by screening of cDNA library that was prepared from whole larvae of the fall webworm, Hyphantria cunea (Lepidoptera, Arctiidae). The cDNAs encode 681 and 697(More)
It is well known that the expression level of the ICAM-1 and MHC is frequently altered in accordance with tumor progression, and the expression of oncogenes is significantly related to tumorigenesis, tumor progression, and/or metastatic potential. In this study, to investigate the relationship between the alteration in ICAM-1 and MHC expression with the(More)
