Comparative detection of lymph node micrometastases of stage II colorectal cancer by reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction and immunohistochemistry.
PURPOSE Inconsistent conclusions have been drawn about the clinical significance of micrometastases in lymph nodes (LNs) of node-negative colorectal cancer (CRC) patients. We performed a comparativeExpand

Inflammatory response in facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD): Immunocytochemical and genetic analyses
To investigate the nature of the inflammatory response in facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD), we analyzed mononuclear cells in muscle sections obtained from 18 FSHD patients and 8Expand

Overexpression of CDC25A phosphatase is associated with hypergrowth activity and poor prognosis of human hepatocellular carcinomas.
PURPOSE AND EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN CDC25 genes are cell cycle-activating phosphatases that positively regulate the activity of cyclin-dependent kinase. CDC25A and CDC25B, being oncogenes, areExpand

Correlation of GLUT-1 Overexpression, Tumor Size, and Depth of Invasion with 18F-2-fluoro-2-deoxy-d-glucose Uptake by Positron Emission Tomography in Colorectal Cancer
We investigated the wide variability of 18F-2-fluoro-2-deoxy-d-glucose (FDG) uptake, semiquantified as standardized uptake value (SUV), in positron emission tomography (PET) scanning, in 20 patientsExpand

Application of RT-PCR to clinical diagnosis of micrometastasis of colorectal cancer: A translational research study.
We previously reported in a retrospective study that CEA-based RT-PCR was useful for predicting the prognosis of patients with node-negative colorectal cancer. RT-PCR is well established forExpand

Clinical relevance of fusion images using (18)F-2-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose positron emission tomography in local recurrence of rectal cancer.
Local recurrence of rectal cancer is a critical issue. Anatomical images, such as computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), are sometimes insufficient for preoperative evaluation.Expand

Analysis of cyclin D1 and CDK expression in colonic polyps containing neoplastic foci: a study of proteins extracted from paraffin sections.
Overexpression or amplification of G1 cyclins has been demonstrated in various types of human cancers. Overexpression of cyclin D1, an accelerator of cell cycle, is thought to be an early event inExpand

Magnet design by integration of layer and chain magnetic systems in a π-stacked pillared layer framework.
The control of inter-lattice magnetic interactions is a crucial issue when long-range ordered magnets that are based on low-dimensional magnetic frameworks are designed. A "pillared layer frameworkExpand
