We analyzed the chlorophyll fluorescence parameters in a 3D cellular arrangement in vivo by using a modified Nipkow disk-type confocal laser scanning microscope (CLSM). We first defined the 3D values of Phi(PSII) (photochemical yield of PSII) and NPQ (non-photochemical quenching) in mesophyll, epidermal and guard cell chloroplasts from the leaf surface to(More)
A total of 40 patients with advanced and recurrent gastric cancer in our hospital were treated with TS-1 alone, and the efficacy of treatment, survival time, and adverse effects were examined. TS-1 was administered with the usual dosage and dose regimen. Response to treatment included a complete response (CR) in 3 cases, partial response (PR) in 8 cases, no(More)
We report on the novel optimization method to realize highly uniform microtrap arrays for single atom trapping with a spatial light modulator (SLM). This method consists of two iterative feedback loops with the measurements of both diffracted light intensities and in-trap fluorescence intensities from each microtrap. By applying this method to the single(More)
We studied a new chemoendocrine therapy against recurrent breast cancer in order to evaluate its efficacy and toxicity. Sixteen eligible patients were treated with the therapy consisting of adriamycin/cyclophosphamide (AC) plus toremifene (TOR). Adriamycin (20 mg/m2) was administered intravenously on days 1 and 8, and cyclophosphamide (100 mg/body) was(More)
The patient was a 64-year-old male. On November 21, 1991, he underwent gastric resection on the pyloric side for early gastric cancer in the authors' hospital, and did not experience recurrence for many years thereafter. However, endoscopic examination of the upper gastrointestinal tract performed on June 11, 1999 revealed advanced cancer in the posterior(More)
