INTRODUCTION Polymyositis (PM) and dermatomyositis (DM) are chronic inflammatory muscle diseases, in which chemokines are thought to contribute to inflammatory cell migration into muscle. In this study, we retrospectively analyzed the expressions of CX3CL1/fractalkine and its corresponding receptor, CX3CR1, in muscle and lung with interstitial lung disease(More)
Sera from C57Bl/6 mice treated orally with Ge-132 exhibited antitumour activity against Ehrlich (allogeneic) and RL male 1 (syngeneic) ascites tumours in BALB/c mice. Sera obtained from mice 24 h after Ge-132 administration displayed the greatest antitumour effect and this was dose dependent. Sera prepared from mice 12, 36, or 48 h after Ge-132 treatment(More)
OBJECTIVE We used the hybrid capture assays to investigate the prevalence of human papillomavirus (HPV), Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae among commercial sex workers in Tokyo. METHODS Five hundred forty-six consecutive commercial sex workers (CSW) who visited an STD clinic for STD checkup in 1998 and 1999 were studied. A control group(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of superselective cisplatin infusion with concomitant radiotherapy (RADPLAT) for previously untreated patients with the squamous cell carcinoma of maxillary sinus (SCC-MS). METHODS Between 1999 and 2010, 54 patients were given superselective intra-arterial infusions of cisplatin (100-120 mg(More)
The Syrian hamster embryo cell lines, SHOK and MC-1, were used as recipient cells for DNA transfection assay to detect transforming genes in experimental mouse tumours. A mouse repeat sequence was utilised to check whether each transformed focus included mouse genomic DNA in the Hamster background. We investigated five mouse tumours that are related to(More)
Many immunomodulators induce the production of interferons (IFN) in vivo (Matsubara et al., 1981) and exhibit antitumour activities in animals and patients with cancer (Mastrangelo et al., 1981). The antitumour effect of IFN have been also demonstrated in experimental models and in various human tumours (Sikora et al., 1983). These immunomodulators, as well(More)
