Expression of HER-2 and COX-2 was determined to assess the potential of molecular-targeted therapy against human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 (HER-2) and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) for the treatment of invasive bladder cancer. The subjects were 46 patients who attended Aichi Medical University Hospital between January 2001 and August 2008, underwent(More)
The aims of this study were to investigate the penetration of meropenem (MER) into human prostate tissue and to assess MER regimens for prostatitis by performing a site-specific pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic evaluation. Patients with prostatic hypertrophy (n=49) prophylactically received a 0.5-h infusion of MER (250 mg or 500 mg) before transurethral(More)
INTRODUCTION It has been reported that immunoglobulin G4-related systemic disease can spread to nearly every organ, and often presents as an inflammatory mass or masses at those sites. In the kidney, this disease is often diagnosed after a radical or partial nephrectomy following the discovery of an inflammatory mass which is often suspected to be a(More)
Prostatic hypertrophy patients prophylactically received a 0.5-hour infusion of doripenem (250 or 500 mg) before transurethral resection of the prostate. Doripenem concentrations in plasma and prostate tissue were measured chromatographically, and analysed pharmacokinetically using a three-compartment model. The approved doripenem regimens were assessed(More)
It has not been elucidated whether certain types of M1b prostate cancer (M1b PC) are associated with a poor outcome. The present study retrospectively identified predictive factors related to the outcome of M1b PC. The subjects were 104 patients who attended our hospital and received a diagnosis of M1b PC. The observation period ranged from 4 to 122 months(More)
BACKGROUND We examined whether human epidermal growth factor-2(HER-2) overexpression could be a useful marker of outcome after hormone therapy in patients with M1b prostate cancer (PC). SUBJECTS AND METHODS The subjects were 102 patients who were diagnosed with M1b PC at Aichi Medical University Hospital. HER-2 expression was determined by(More)
This study aimed to investigate the penetration of PIPC-TAZ into human prostate, and to assess effectiveness of PIPC-TAZ against prostatitis by evaluating site-specific PK-PD. Patients with prostatic hypertrophy (n = 47) prophylactically received a 0.5 h infusion of PIPC-TAZ (8:1.2-0.25 g or 4-0.5 g) before transurethral resection of the prostate. PIPC-TAZ(More)
BACKGROUND The aim was to retrospectively assess the results of treatment of upper urinary tract stones with the Sonolith vision manufactured by EDAP, and purchased in 2004. METHODS The subjects were 226 Japanese patients who underwent extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) alone as an initial treatment and could be followed up for at least 3(More)
BACKGROUND Carcinoid is an endocrine cell tumor with low-grade atypia, which is generally a low-grade malignant cancer with a good prognosis. Metastatic renal carcinoid is even rarer than primary carcinoids. CASE PRESENTATION We present our experience of a patient with metastatic renal carcinoid from the gastrointestinal tract. CONCLUSIONS The carcinoid(More)
We report a case of neuroendocrine carcinoma in a diverticulum of the bladder. A 65-year-old Japanese woman visited our hospital with the chief complaint of gross hematuria. Cystoscopy revealed a non-papillary broad-based tumor in a diverticulum of the posterior wall. She underwent transurethral resection of bladder tumor (TURBT) and subsequently total(More)
