Based on the propensity of fat emulsion to be absorbed mainly into lymphatic capillaries and regional lymph nodes, preoperative oral administration of 5-FU emulsion was attempted as an adjuvant chemotherapy to surgery for gastric carcinoma. In our previous studies, it was demonstrated that the mean 5-FU level in the regional lymph nodes was higher in(More)
 A new cottid species, Porocottus leptosomus, is described on the basis of 12 specimens collected from Taean, west coast of Korea, Yellow Sea. The species is distinguished from other species of Porocottus by the following combination of characters: a strongly compressed body, two pairs of branched cirri on the dorsal surface of the head, bases of head cirri(More)
Genetic and morphological differences among the three species of the genus Rastrelliger, viz. Rastrelliger kanagurta, Rastrelliger brachysoma and Rastrelliger faughni were clarified on the basis of 150 specimens collected from Panay Island, the Philippines, thereby providing fundamental information for accurate species identification. Specimens were(More)
A 84-year-old man was admitted with diabetes mellitus, hypertension and chronic renal failure in September 1994. In October 1995, his renal function gradually worsened with hyperkalemia. Sodium polystyrene sulfonate (Kayexalate) was administered orally for the treatment of hyperkalemia. However, after 7 days from the start of Kayexalate therapy,(More)
The three mackerel species, Rastrelliger kanagurta, Rastrelliger brachysoma, and Rastrelliger faughni, co-occur in the central part of the Indo-West Pacific Ocean, and together represent important fisheries resources. However, they have sometimes been collectively referred to as “Rastrelliger spp.” in the fisheries statistics, owing to their morphological(More)
We studied the phylogeny, population structure, and demographic history of Scolopsis taenioptera in the western Pacific Ocean. Using the 80 samples collected from four locations, we obtained the nucleotide sequences of mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I and cytochrome b genes. We identified two distinct lineages showing a clear phylogeographic(More)
Juveniles ofArtediellus neyelovi are described on the basis of 24 specimens (8.3–23.6 mm SL) from Hokkaido, Japan. All medial and paired fins were completely developed in all specimens. The smallest specimen (8.3 mm SL) had a slender elongated suborbital stay similar to that of adults. Specimens 8.3–10.1 mm SL had 4 preopercular spines, cirri absent on the(More)
