Sox is a large family of genes related to the sex-determining region Y gene (designated as the SRY gene). Sox genes encoding DNA-binding transcriptional factors are found in many animals and are involved in developmental events. In this study, we newly isolated and sequenced novel Sox cDNAs from African clawed frog (Xenopus laevis). Five clones isolated(More)
A prospective study was performed in the Reproduction Center of Ichikawa General Hospital (Chiba, Japan) to assess the relationship between dyslipidaemia and sperm quality and serum hormone levels in male patients in Japan. The semen parameters and blood samples were assessed in relation to several variables, including body mass index (BMI) and serum(More)
Adenocarcinoma of the rete testis is a rare malignant tumor with a poor prognosis. About 60 cases of this adenocarcinoma have been reported in the literature. The diagnosis is often difficult and made incidentally. Herein, we report a case of adenocarcinoma of the rete testis and review the literature. Our patient was an 80-year-old man who presented with(More)
For normal fertilization in mammals, it is important that functionally mature sperm are motile and have a fully formed acrosome. The glycosyltransferase-like gene, human polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase-like protein 5 (GALNTL5), belongs to the polypeptide N-acetylgalactosamine-transferase (pp-GalNAc-T) gene family because of its conserved(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the outcomes of patients undergoing radical retropubic prostatectomy (RRP) with a running vesicourethral anastomosis and catheter removal on postoperative day 3 or 5. METHODS From February 2006 through December 2007, 55 patients underwent RRP at our institution. All procedures were performed by a single surgeon using a running suture(More)
Some cases of testicular trauma cause infertility especially when the injured testes are not removed. However, only a few long-term follow-up studies investigating endocrinological and semen parameters in patients who had testicular trauma have been conducted. Herein, we report an interesting case of a patient who spontaneously recovered from azoospermia(More)
BACKGROUND It is difficult to explain ectopic thyroid beneath the diaphragm because during the development the thyroid descends from the tongue to the anterior of the trachea. A few cases of ectopic lesions have been reported in the literature for abdominal organs including the adrenal glands, but the mechanism by which the thyroid components migrate into(More)
A 71-year-old man was admitted to our hospital in February 2002 with a diagnosis of advanced gastric cancer with a tumor embolus in the portal vein. TS-1 (120 mg/day) was administered orally daily for 21 days, and CDDP (90 mg/day) was infused intravenously on day 8. After 1 course of this regimen, medication was discontinued in accordance with the patient's(More)
About 3million men have been reported to have osteoporosis in Japan. One of known causes of osteoporosis in men is late-onset-hypogonadism. Androgen replacement therapy has been reporte to be effective in seveal literatures, however, patitiets should be excluded if prostate cancer is suspected. Addition of bisphosphpnate and active vitain D derivatives are(More)
PURPOSE We aimed to investigate the effects of FSH for promoting spermatogenesis in mice with low-dose doxorubicin-induced spermatogenesis impairment. METHODS Eight-wk-old male imprinting control region mice were divided into three groups. Groups D and F received 0.5 mg/kg of doxorubicin twice weekly for 5 weeks. Group C received saline instead of(More)
