The multi-cytokine inducer OK-432 is a pulverized preparation of the low-virulence SU strain of Streptococcus pyogenes of human origin. A reduction of the tumour mass in the OK-432-injected areas was observed in 11 out of 13 patients with metastatic and/or recurrent head and neck cancer. Complete response (CR), partial response (PR) and minor response (MR)(More)
Most patients have no response to injectable collagen or silicone, but some cases may have positive or 'undersea' (= clinically negative but immunologically positive) response to collagen. From the results of the Macrophage migration inhibition test, the relative immunogenicity was augmented most when we used implants with the following combination. The(More)
" Bio-resources " , commonly used biological materials for experimental studies such as mouse strains, cell lines and microbe culture collections are crucial fundamentals to provide reproducibility and reliability of data in life science. To provide advanced infrastructure of life science, wider-dissemination, quality control and standardization of(More)
The intracordal injection technique was first introduced by Brünings in 1911. This technique has been accepted as vocal rehabilitation for dysphonia caused by deficiencies of glottal closure. Although various injection materials have been evaluated, the injection procedure itself has not been studied. In this study, we measured the mechanical force required(More)
A study was undertaken to determine the voice prognosis in 51 of the 408 patients with unilateral recurrent laryngeal nerve paralysis who had visited the Department of Ear, Nose and Throat at Keio University between 1977 and 1984. The 51 patients were divided into three groups: 18 patients without silicone injection, 15 with a silicone liquid implant, and(More)
We developed RDF-based databases of the phenotypes and animal strains produced in Japan and a portal site termed as " J-Phenome ". By the application of common schema, these databases can be retrieved by the same SPARQL query across graphs. In the operation of these databases, RDF represented multiple advantages such as improvement of comprehensive search,(More)
We are managing 8 home care patients who have a gastrostomy made using an endoscopic percutaneous technique as a route of parenteral alimentation. Based on our experience, the preconditions for an endoscopic percutaneous gastrostomy as a route of parenteral alimentation are 1. normal gastrointestinal function, 2. difficulty in swallowing, 3. possibility(More)
