Glycogen Synthase Kinase 3 beta (GSK3β) is a serine-threonine kinase originally identified for its role in the conversion of glucose to glycogen. Pharmacological inhibition can be achieved by drug binding to ATP or magnesium binding sites on the enzyme. Pharmaceutical companies have developed several small molecule GSK3β inhibitors for diabetes research.(More)
OBJECTIVES Cord blood (CB) has been established to be an alternative source of haematopoietic stem/progenitor cells (HPC) for transplantation. The number of HPC per CB unit is limited, which results in engraftment delay. Ex vivo expansion of HPC improvement must overcome this. MATERIALS AND METHODS Flow cytometry was used to extensively phenotype HPC pre-(More)
Distal Surgical margin, required in the sphincter preserving operation for rectal cancer was studied histologically on the 78 resected specimens. The extramural cancer spread, examined by clearing method, was found in 20.5%, and was more frequent and expansive compared to intramural spread of cancer. No distal spread was found in cancer limited to the(More)
We performed arterial infusion chemotherapy through hepatic artery in 33 patients with liver metastasis of colorectal cancer. Regarding the survival rate, the 1-year survival rate was 55.6% and the 5-year rate was 27.8% in cases of H2, and 1-year as 28.9% in H3. According to criteria of Saito-Koyama, the response rate was 24.2%, including 2 CR and 6 PR(More)
