The heated cigarette (HC) generates mainstream smoke by vaporizing the components of the tobacco rod using a carbon heat source at the cigarette tip. Mainstream smoke of HC contains markedly less chemical constituents compared to combusted cigarettes. Mainstream smoke from HC was generated under Health Canada Intense regimen and its biological effects were(More)
We reviewed and compared the computed tomographic (CT) findings for 5 patients suspected of having enterovesical fistulae with convential radiographic studies and the results of cystoscopy. Prior to scanning, patients were rectally administered 200 ml of 0.8% wt/vol barium solution, and then evacuated before they were administered 200 ml of olive oil via(More)
Test cigarette (prototype "heated" cigarette) was evaluated on its dermal tumor promotion activity in SENCAR mice relative to conventional 3R4F cigarette. Mainstream cigarette smoke was generated under the modified Health Canada Intensive Regimen, and smoke condensate (CSCs) were collected using cold traps and extracted with acetone. Female mice received a(More)
The significance of pre-operative transcatheter arterial chemoembolization therapy using lipiodol, cisplatin and gelatin sponge (Gelfoam) for the prevention of the recurrence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) was evaluated. On the 103 patients who underwent radical operations for HCC with a tumor size less than 10 cm, 52 patients received no pre-operative(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of moderate dose radiation therapy (RT) for mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma in a prospective multicenter phase II trial. METHODS AND MATERIALS The subjects in this study were 37 patients with MALT lymphoma between April 2002 and November 2004. There were 16 male and(More)
BACKGROUND We evaluated the efficacy of our quality assurance (QA) program of radiation therapy (RT) in a prospective phase II study. This is the first description of the experience of the Japan Radiation Oncology Group (JAROG) with this program. METHODS Clinical records, all diagnostic radiological films or color photos that depicted the extent of(More)
Waldenström macroglobulinemia (WM) is a rare lymphoid malignancy. Many studies, including clinicopathological, cytogenetic, gene expression profile, and therapy studies have been reported from the US and Europe, although only a few reports are available from East Asia, including Japan. To further clarify the clinicopathological, radiological, and(More)
During the period of 13 years, 318 hepatocellular carcinomas have been studied. Fifty-three tumors were resected. In 86 patients transcatheter embolization (TAE) was performed. In 60 patients cytostatic drug was injected into the hepatic artery. In 119 patients cytostatic drug was intravenously or peroraly administered. In patients with resectable tumors 1(More)
The prognosis of CD20-positive (CD20+) diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) with central nervous system (CNS) recurrence is still poor. A standard treatment for CD20+ DLBCL with CNS recurrence in elderly patients has not been established mainly due to adverse effects. We previously reported the efficacy and safety of MIND-E (ranimustine, ifosfamide,(More)
We have found that endotoxemia detected by conventional LCT (limulus colorimetric test) in patients with liver diseases could not be detected by endotoxin-specific LCT at all, and proposed that this β-glucan like activity (BGLA) should be termed as non-septic endotoxemia, distinguishing it from septic endotoxemia seen in gram-negative sepsis. In this study,(More)
