Reaction of 2'-deoxy-5-hydroxyuridine with some Wittig reagents gave 5-alkoxycarbonylmethyl-, 5-carbamoylmethyl-, 5-cyanomethyl-and 5-acetonyl-2'-deoxyuridines. The corresponding 1-beta-D-arabinofuranosyl derivatives were prepared from 1-beta-D-arabinofuranosyl-5-hydroxymethyluracil. The latter was also converted to 1-beta-D-arabinofuranosyl-5-vinyluracil(More)
1. We examined the contribution of endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor (EDHF) to the impairment of endothelium-dependent relaxation caused by acetylcholine (ACh) in the aorta of streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats, by using N omega-L-nitro-arginine methylester (L-NAME) and tetraethylammonium chloride (TEA) to inhibit nitric oxide (NO) and EDHF,(More)
We examined the effects of anxiolytics and anxiogenics on evaluation of learning and memory in the elevated plus-maze test in mice. Transfer latency (TL), the time mice took to move from the open arm to the enclosed arm, was used as an index of learning and memory. The TL on day 2 was shorter than that on day 1 with the maze at a height of 40 cm, and was(More)
This prospective study aimed to evaluate the feasibility and safety of locoregional mitomycin C (MMC) injection to treat refractory esophageal strictures after endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for superficial esophageal carcinoma. Patients with dysphagia and strictures that were refractory to repeated endoscopic balloon dilation (EBD) were eligible.(More)
BACKGROUND Peritoneal metastasis is the most frequent cause of death in patients with gastric cancer. Detection of free cancer cells in the peritoneal cavity at the time of surgery, therefore, is considered to be of great value in predicting the peritoneal recurrence and accordingly in the prognosis in patients with gastric cancer. This study examined the(More)
Potential antiviral nucleoside analogs 1-beta-D-arabinofuranosylthymine, the 1-(2-deoxy-2-fluoro-beta-D-arabinofuranosyl)-nucleosides of -5-methyluracil, -5-iodouracil, -5-methylcytosine, -5-iodocytosine, and -E-5-(2-bromovinyl)uracil, E-5-(2-bromovinyl)-2'-deoxyuridine, E-5-(2-bromovinyl)-1-beta-D-arabinofuranosyluracil, and(More)
This study found that oridonin, a natural diterpenoid purified from Rabdosia rubescens, inhibited growth of multiple myeloma (MM; U266, RPMI8226), acute lymphoblastic T-cell leukemia (Jurkat), and adult T-cell leukemia (MT-1) cells with an effective dose that inhibited 50% of target cells (ED50) ranging from 0.75 to 2.7 microg/mL. Terminal(More)
BACKGROUND To examine the effect of the histology of carcinoma and sarcoma components on survival outcome of uterine carcinosarcoma. PATIENTS AND METHODS A multicenter retrospective study was conducted to examine uterine carcinosarcoma cases that underwent primary surgical staging. Archived slides were examined and histologic patterns were grouped based(More)
In our extensive screening of anti-HIV-1 agents in chronically infected cell lines, we have found acridone derivatives to be selective inhibitors of HIV-1 replication. Among the acridone derivatives, 1-hydroxy-10-methyl-9,10-dihydroacrid-9-one (RD6-5071) suppressed tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha-induced HIV-1 expression in the latently infected cell line(More)
Complete situs inversus is a rare abnormality of autosomal recessive inheritance; it requires particular care during surgery, because the viscus anatomy is a mirror image of the normal anatomy. Reports of surgery for lung cancer in cases of complete situs inversus are very rare. Here, we report a case of lobectomy for lung cancer of the right lower lobe(More)
