Possible involvement of the M2 anti‐inflammatory macrophage phenotype in growth of human gliomas
TLDR
It is suggested that tumour‐derived M‐CSF induces a shift of microglia/macrophages towards the M2 phenotype, which influences tumour growth. Expand
Prognostic value of epidermal growth factor receptor in patients with glioblastoma multiforme.
TLDR
In GBM patients, EGFR is of significant prognostic value for predicting survival, and the overexpression of EGFRvIII with amplification plays an important role in enhanced tumorigenicity. Expand
Natural history of elderly patients with asymptomatic meningiomas
TLDR
In elderly patients with asymptomatic meningiomas, careful clinical follow up with imaging studies is important, and imaging features mentioned may contribute to prediction of tumour growth. Expand
Prognostic Value of Perfusion MR Imaging of High-Grade Astrocytomas: Long-Term Follow-Up Study
TLDR
The maximum rCBV at pretreatment perfusion MR imaging is a useful clinical prognostic biomarker for survival in patients with high-grade astrocytoma. Expand
Method for quantitatively evaluating the lateralization of linguistic function using functional MR imaging.
TLDR
The laterality index (LI) was calculated first by a previously reported method and second by a newly designed method, in which the correlation between the z scores and the number of activated pixels in the regions of interest was investigated. Expand
Diffusion-weighted imaging of metastatic brain tumors: comparison with histologic type and tumor cellularity.
TLDR
The SI on DWI may predict the histology of metastases; well differentiated adenocarcinomas tended to be hypointense, and small- and large-cell neuroendocrine carcinomas showed hyperintensity. Expand
Malignant supratentorial astrocytoma treated with postoperative radiation therapy: prognostic value of pretreatment quantitative diffusion-weighted MR imaging.
TLDR
The minimum ADC at pretreatment MR imaging is a useful clinical prognostic biomarker for survival in patients with malignant supratentorial astrocytoma. Expand
Incidence and clinical features of asymptomatic meningiomas.
TLDR
Among patients older than age 70 years who underwent operation for asymptomatic meningioma, the neurological morbidity rate was 23.3%; it was 3.5% among younger patients, indicating that the advisability of surgery in elderly patients with asymPTomaticMeningiomas must be considered very carefully. Expand
Expression of osteopontin in human glioma. Its correlation with the malignancy.
TLDR
The findings indicate that OPN mRNA and proteins are expressed in human glioma cells, and that the extent of OPN expression may correlate with the malignancy grade of gliomas. Expand
Functional anatomy of the basal ganglia in X‐linked recessive dystonia‐parkinsonism
TLDR
This study is the first to the authors' knowledge to show specific basal ganglia pathology that could explain the genesis of dystonia in human heredodegenerative movement disorders, suggesting that dySTONia may result from an imbalance in the activity between the striosomal and matrix‐based pathways.
