A case of meningeal melanocytoma at the foramen magnum is reported in a 62-year-old man. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging revealed characteristic signal patterns: homogeneous high intensity on the T1-weighted image and low intensity on the T2-weighted image. Light microscopy showed a histological appearance similar to that of melanotic meningioma. The(More)
PURPOSE AZD2171 is an oral, highly potent, and selective vascular endothelial growth factor signaling inhibitor that inhibits all vascular endothelial growth factor receptor tyrosine kinases. The purpose of this study was to investigate the activity of AZD2171 in gastric cancer. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN We examined the antitumor effect of AZD2171 on the eight(More)
Inactivation of p16INK4, an inhibitor of cyclin-dependent kinases 4 (CDK4) and 6 (CDK6), may be essential for oncogenesis in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We examined the sensitivity of two clones of p16INK4-transfected NSCLC cell line with homozygous deletion of p16INK4, A549/p16-1 and 2, to DNA topoisomerase I (topo I) inhibitors. A549/p16-1 and -2(More)
SRPX2 (Sushi repeat containing protein, X-linked 2) was first identified as a downstream molecule of the E2A-HLF fusion gene in t(17;19)-positive leukemia cells and the biological function of this gene remains unknown. We found that SRPX2 is overexpressed in gastric cancer and the expression and clinical features showed that high mRNA expression levels were(More)
Constitutively active mutations of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) (delE746_A750) activate downstream signals, such as ERK and Akt, through the phosphorylation of tyrosine residues in the C-terminal region of EGFR. These pathways are thought to be important for cellular sensitivity to EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI). To examine the correlation(More)
Seven dural arteriovenous fistulas were successfully embolized with mechanical detachable coils. Two lesions were located in the transverse-sigmoid sinus, four in the cavernous sinus, and one in the marginal sinus. All lesions were completely occluded on postembolization angiography. No recurrent symptoms appeared during a mean follow-up period of 11(More)
OBJECTIVE Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) for the distal vertebral and basilar artery is now being performed in selected patients with haemodynamically significant lesions of the posterior cerebral circulation. Its effect and overall results were examined. PATIENTS AND METHODS A balloon dilatation catheter specifically developed for these(More)
OBJECT The P19 embryonal carcinoma-derived cell line consists of undifferentiated multipotential cells, which irreversibly differentiate into mature neurons after exposure to retinoic acid (RA). In the present study, the authors genetically engineered P19 cells to produce glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF), and grafted the cells in a rat(More)
A humanized anti-HER2 monoclonal antibody pertuzumab (Omnitarg, 2C4), binding to a different HER2 epitope than trastuzumab, is known as an inhibitor of heterodimerization of the HER receptors. Potent antitumor activity against HER2-expressing breast and prostate cancer cell lines has been clarified, but this potential is not clear against lung cancers. The(More)
It is well known that neurofibromatosis is associated with various types of arteriovenous fistulas (AVF), but association with an occipital AVF has not been reported. We are reporting this case which was successfully treated with a combination of embolization and surgery. Superselective angiography defines the anatomic details of the fistula and(More)
