PURPOSE This study was designed to (1) describe the vascular patterns of ciliary body and choroidal nevi by light microscopy, (2) compare the vascular ultrastructure of nevi with vessels of the normal uvea and uveal melanomas, and (3) compare the behavior of ciliochoroidal melanomas with and without a nevus-like vascular architecture. METHODS After(More)
Nitric oxide (NO) modifies the functions of a variety of proteins containing cysteine thiols or transition-metal centers, particularly by S-nitrosylation. In inflamed liver, NO is overproduced and hepatic drug-metabolizing enzymes, the flavin-containing monooxygenases (FMOs) and cytochrome P450s (CYPs), are suppressed. However, the NO-related mechanisms(More)
INTRODUCTION To determine whether genetic variations in CMPK1 or RRM1, which impact the pharmacodynamics of gemcitabine, differentially affect the outcomes of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients treated with gemcitabine or taxane/cisplatinum. METHODS We conducted retrospective study evaluating the associations between overall survival in 298 NSCLC(More)
Nine morphologic patterns of tumor vessels were identified in eyes removed for ciliary body or choroidal melanoma by the examination of tissue sections stained with fluorescein-conjugated Ulex europaeus I using laser scanning confocal microscopy. This technique also highlights intravascular tumor invasion. Each of these nine morphologic patterns of tumor(More)
PURPOSE The authors describe the clinical, histopathologic, and ultrastructural findings in two eyes obtained at autopsy from a 21-year-old woman with mitochondrial encephalomyopathy, lactic acidosis, and stroke-like episodes (MELAS syndrome). METHODS The eyes were obtained immediately after death. The right eye was fixed in 10% neutral-buffered formalin(More)
This report describes the clinical, histopathologic, ultrastructural, and immunohistochemical findings in two corneal buttons from a 13-year-old girl who developed bilateral progressive corneal stromal opacification during childhood. As determined by light microscopy, both corneal buttons were edematous with a chronic inflammatory infiltrate confined to the(More)
To identify the novel mechanism by which nitric oxide (NO) suppresses flavin-containing monooxygenase (FMO) activity in endotoxemic rat livers, NO-overproducing conditions were induced in primary cultured rat hepatocytes by treatment with a mixture (LCM) of lipopolysaccharide and proinflammatory cytokines (IL-1beta, TNF-alpha, and IFN-gamma), or by the(More)
We herein report the case of a 23-year-old man who presented with recurrent pancreatitis and was diagnosed with primary pancreatic extranodal natural killer/T-cell lymphoma, nasal type, involving the right ventricle. The cardiac involvement was screened and confirmed by transthoracic echocardiography (TTE), cardiac magnetic resonance imaging and(More)
Bortezomib is an inhibitor of 26S proteasome, which is an effective treatment for multiple myeloma. The common adverse effects of bortezomib are asthenic conditions, gastrointestinal disturbances, and peripheral neuropathy. Here we describe a patient with dyspnea and general weakness because of complete atrioventricular block while receiving bortezomib. We(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study is to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD), safety, pharmacokinetics, and recommended phase II dose of an oral drug composed of paclitaxel and HM30181A, which is an inhibitor of P-glycoprotein, in patients with advanced cancers. MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients with advanced solid tumors received standard therapy were(More)
