Monosodium urate (MSU) crystals have been reported to evoke specific cell immunity and to work as an adjuvant in a mouse model. The crystals also have another unique characteristic to bind with positively charged proteins, which could help to deliver some antigens into human dendritic cells (DC). We focused on the application of MSU crystals as not only an(More)
Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are a heterogeneous group of clonal hematopoietic disorders characterized by normal or hypercellular but dysfunctional bone marrow. They usually are refractory to empirical therapeutic regimens. Recently the prevalence of MDS in the elderly is increasing and now the syndromes are relatively commonly encountered in elderly(More)
Monosodium urate (MSU) crystals are known to induce gouty arthritis, but also evoke specific cell immunity and work as an adjuvant by delivering several kinds of binding proteins, including idiotypic cancer vaccine peptides into dendritic cells. To investigate the potency of MSU crystals as a cancer vaccine carrier in vivo, this preclinical study examined(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the relationship between renal function and linezolid (LZD)-induced thrombocytopenia and elucidate the underlying mechanism using a chronic renal disease (CRD) mouse model. MATERIALS AND METHODS CRD was induced in 5-week-old male Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) mice by 5/6 nephrectomy. After this procedure, LZD (25 and 100(More)
A 64-year-old man was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia M2 (FLT3-ITD-positive). After induction chemotherapy and four courses of consolidation therapy, he underwent umbilical cord blood transplantation (CBT) in his first remission. He developed acute graft-versus-host disease (skin stage 2) after successful engraftment. On post-transplantation day 147,(More)
Standardized treatments for indolent B cell lymphoma primarily consisting of follicular lymphoma (FL) and for mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) have yet to be established. Here the Hokuriku Hematology Oncology Study Group conducted a multicenter prospective study to investigate the efficacy and safety of a combination regimen of rituximab, cladribine,(More)
BACKGROUND It has been suggested that more than 100 bacterial species can be identified using only seven universal bacterial primer sets in the melting temperature (Tm) mapping method and that these findings can be obtained within 3 h of sterile site collection. CASE PRESENTATION A 67-year-old Japanese man with type 2 diabetes visited our hospital(More)
Objective We retrospectively compared the clinical efficacy and toxicity of rituximab (R)-THP-COP (pirarubicin, cyclophosphamide, vincristine, and prednisolone) with that of R-CHOP (rituximab, adriamicin, cyclophosphamide, vincristine, and prednisolone) in previously untreated old patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). Patients and Methods(More)
