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)
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)
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)
