Copper-62-ATSM: a new hypoxia imaging agent with high membrane permeability and low redox potential.
TLDR
Retention of 62Cu-ATSM was studied serially in perfused rat hearts under conditions of normoxia, hypoxia and reoxygenation, and retention was increased markedly under hypoxic conditions, with inversely correlated with accumulation of 201Tl, a relative myocardial blood flow marker. Expand
IgG subclasses in patients with membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis, membranous nephropathy, and lupus nephritis.
TLDR
Ig3 is an important factor in the pathogenesis of primary MPGN, while IgG4 relates to glomerular IgG deposition in MN, and serum concentrations of IgG subclasses and %IgG in all groups were almost within normal range based on the values in Japanese healthy adults. Expand
The insulin-like growth factor II receptor gene is mutated in genetically unstable cancers of the endometrium, stomach, and colorectum.
TLDR
The results implicate abnormal IGFIIR-mediated growth control in carcinogenesis involving the endometrium, stomach, and colorectum but not the pancreas. Expand
Impact of the Preoperative Controlling Nutritional Status (CONUT) Score on the Survival after Curative Surgery for Colorectal Cancer
TLDR
This study suggested that the CONUT score is a strong independent predictor of the survival among CRC patients. Expand
Distribution of glomerular IgG subclass deposits in malignancy-associated membranous nephropathy.
TLDR
The findings suggest that the distribution patterns of glomerular IgG subclass deposits are different in idiopathic MN and M-MN, and the strong IF intensity of glomecular IgG1 and IgG2 in M- MN may provide a possible predictor for this condition. Expand
Meta-analysis of the Results of Randomized Controlled Trials that Compared Laparoscopic and Open Surgery for Acute Appendicitis
TLDR
Laparoscopic surgery may now be the standard treatment for acute appendicitis and is associated with earlier resumption of liquid and solid intake; shorter duration of postoperative hospital stay; a reduction in dose numbers of parenteral and oral analgesics; and similar hospital charges. Expand
Mammalian HSP60 is quickly sorted into the mitochondria under conditions of dehydration.
TLDR
Results suggested that mammalian HSP60 is located both in the cytoplasm as a stable cy toplasmic H SP60 and also in the mitochondria under normal conditions. Expand
Meta-analysis of laparoscopy-assisted and open distal gastrectomy for gastric cancer.
TLDR
LADG is significantly superior to ODG regarding the volume of blood loss, duration of hospital stay, level of pain, and risk of complications, and there was no difference in the resumption of oral intake, rate of tumor recurrence, and mortality. Expand
Monoclonal immunoglobulin deposition disease associated with membranous features.
TLDR
This study suggests glomerular deposition of a nondeleted whole immunoglobulin molecule in patients with MIDD associated with membranous features appears to respond well to steroid therapy. Expand
Metabolic activity in the areas of new fill-in after thallium-201 reinjection: comparison with positron emission tomography using fluorine-18-deoxyglucose.
TLDR
Reinjection thallium imaging still underestimates the extent of tissue viability compared to PET imaging, but the segments showing new fill-in after reinjection are PET viable myocardium. Expand
