Oral squamous-cell carcinoma (OSCC) is one of the most common types of human cancer. Typically OSCC cells show persistent invasion that frequently leads to local recurrence and distant lymphatic metastasis. We previously identified Periostin as the gene demonstrating the highest fold change expression in the invasive clone by comparing the transcriptional(More)
A 34-year-old man developed a spindle-cell sarcoma originating in a preexisting lesion of monostotic fibrous dysplasia. A review of the literature reveals 83 cases of a malignant degeneration in fibrous dysplasia; osteosarcoma was the most common type of tumor.

Diagnosing adipocytic tumors can be challenging because it is often difficult to morphologically distinguish between benign, intermediate and malignant adipocytic tumors, and other sarcomas that are histologically similar. Recently, a number of tumor-specific chromosome translocations and associated fusion genes have been identified in adipocytic tumors and(More)
The receptor-activator of nuclear kappaB ligand (RANKL) signaling pathway plays an important role in the regulation of bone growth and mediates the formation and activation of osteoclasts. Osteoclasts are involved in significant bone resorption and destruction. Denosumab is a fully human monoclonal antibody against RANKL that specifically inhibits(More)
PURPOSE To describe a case of bilateral herpes simplex keratitis accompanying chronic graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). DESIGN Observational case report. CASE REPORT An 11-year-old boy with myelocytic leukemia underwent allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. He developed symptoms of the skin, eyes, and mouth, and lip biopsy indicated chronic GVHD.(More)
