The antiandrogenic drug, flutamide (Odyne), is widely used in the treatment of carcinoma of prostate. It is well known that flutamide has adverse effects of liver disorders. To ascertain the risk of liver disorders before administering this drug, past history and lifestyle preferences were resurveyed in 123 patients who had been treated with flutamide. The(More)
BACKGROUND The long-term antiproteinuric effects of benidipine, a calcium channel blocker (CCB), have not been evaluated in detail in hypertensive patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). METHODS Benidipine (4 mg/day) was administered to previously untreated hypertensive patients with CKD, or hypertensive patients with CKD not achieving target blood(More)
Graft failure is a major concern after cord blood transplantation (CBT) or HLA-haploidentical transplantation (haplo-SCT). As patients who undergo CBT or haplo-SCT almost always lack both matched-related and -unrelated donors, salvage transplantation would also be limited to either CBT or haplo-SCT. In this study, we assessed eight patients who received(More)
Acute GVHD (aGVHD) is a major obstacle to allogeneic hematopoietic SCT (alloHSCT). Although it is thought that aGVHD is initiated in secondary lymphoid organs at a very early stage of alloHSCT, whether CD4(+)FOXP3(+) regulatory T-cells (Tregs) have an impact on aGVHD development during this period remains unclear. Here, we measured Tregs in peripheral blood(More)
Experimental otitis media with effusion was induced in chinchillas by middle ear effusion, which was induced by an injection of immune complex into the tympanic cavity. To elucidate the pathogenesis of otitis media with effusion, cytologic and biochemical findings of the effusion and histopathology of the middle ear mucosa of effusion-induced chinchillas(More)
Thirty-one adult patients with chronic subdural hematoma were treated surgically and followed Up by CT. In these cases, the postoperative regression of the hematoma cavity on CT was analysed in relation to patient's age, timing of operation, operative method, preoperative CT findings and postoperative clinical courses. In patients with older age and/or low(More)
Four patients with advanced testis cancer were treated by high-dose chemotherapy supporting by autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation. High-dose chemotherapy (carboplatin 250 mg/m2 or nedaplatin 200 mg/m2, etoposide 1,500 mg/m2, ifosphamide 7.5 g/m2 was given and peripheral blood stem cell transfusion was performed 72 hours after the last(More)
