EBV-associated gastric carcinoma is a distinct subset of gastric carcinoma infected with EBV, which shows latency I type expression of EBV latent genes (EBNA1, EBER, BARF0, and LMP2A). To clarify the role of EBV in this type of gastric carcinoma, the cell biological characteristics (growth, apo-ptosis, and migration) were evaluated in gastric carcinoma cell(More)
The KT tumor is a transplantable strain of a human Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-associated gastric carcinoma (EBVaGC), established in severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) mice, with which the cytokine expression of EBVaGC can be investigated without interference from the infiltrating lymphocytes. As a part of a high-density oligonucleotide array (GeneChip)(More)
Although Japanese herbal medicines (JHMs) are widely used in Japan, only a few studies have investigated their effects on nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). In the present study, we examined the effect of 4 kinds of JHMs [sho-saiko-to (TJ-9), inchin-ko-to (TJ-135), juzen-taiho-to (TJ-48), and keishi-bukuryo-gan (TJ-25)] on a mouse model of NASH.

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Hepatocellular carcinomas (HCCs) commonly originate from pre-malignant lesions consisting of mature hepatocytes. However, recent studies have suggested that some HCCs emerge from hepatic stem/progenitor cells because stem/progenitor cell markers and cholangiocyte markers are found in these HCCs. At the same time, the expression of(More)
We report a 42-year-old man with subacute infectious endocarditis (IE) with septic pulmonary embolism, presenting rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis and positive proteinase 3-anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (PR3-ANCA). He had no previous history of heart disease. Renal histology revealed diffuse endocapillary proliferative glomerulonephritis with(More)
IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is associated with the infiltration of IgG4-positive plasma cells into various organs. Nephropathy of IgG4-RD is generally interstitial nephritis and glomerulone-phritis is rare. We describe a case of membranous nephropathy (MN) without interstitial nephritis associated with IgG4-RD symptoms including lymphadenopathy and(More)
BACKGROUND Tumor-to-tumor metastasis is a rare but well-known phenomenon. Among the more than 100 intracranial tumors reported, meningiomas are the most common type, whereas schwannoma is extremely rare. CASE DESCRIPTION We describe a 75-year-old woman with a lung adenocarcinoma that metastasized to a vestibular schwannoma. Tumor-to-tumor metastasis was(More)
