To assess the relationship between pre- and postoperative high-risk human papillomavirus (hrHPV) genotypes and hrHPV type-specific persistence and reappearance of abnormal cytology after successful conization. A retrospective analysis was performed of 211 patients who were undergoing conization after hrHPV genotype testing at Tottori University Hospital(More)
A new cell line of human ovarian clear cell carcinoma (CCC), TU-OC-2, was established and characterized. The cells were polygonal in shape, grew in monolayers without contact inhibition and were arranged in islands like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. The chromosome numbers ranged from 41 to 96. A low rate of proliferation was observed and the doubling time was(More)
BACKGROUND Bevacizumab, which targets vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-A, has recently been proven to be effective for the treatment of epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC). Thus, interest in VEGF-A has increased. There are few reports on concomitant detection of both ligands and its soluble receptors in serum samples, and the significance of serum(More)
PURPOSE To investigate type II endometrial carcinoma characterization using dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI) and evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of semiquantitative DCE-MRI in differentiating type II from type I tumors. MATERIALS AND METHODS Seventy-seven patients with endometrial carcinoma were retrospectively evaluated(More)
A new cell line of human malignant peritoneal mesothelioma (MPM), TU-MM-1, was established and characterized. The cells showed polygonal morphology, grew in monolayers without contact inhibition and were arranged like a jigsaw puzzle. The chromosome numbers ranged from 41 to 44. A low rate of proliferation was observed and the doubling time was 67.9 h.(More)
