A prospective, randomized multi-center study was conducted to assess the clinical effectiveness of Lentinan, an immunomodulatory agent, in the metastatic prostate cancer. Of seventy-five patients enrolled from July 1987 to June 1992, 69 were eligible. All patients received hormonal therapy and chemotherapy using Tegafur p.o. at a dose of 400-800 mg/day.(More)
With the growing emergence of ubiquitous computing and networked systems, ubiquitous robotics is becoming an active research domain. The issue of services composition to offer seamless access to a variety of complex services has received widespread attention in recent years. The majority of the proposed approaches have been inspired from the research(More)
The field of ubiquitous robotics is becoming an active research domain. One of the more challenging of this domain is providing services composition in a seamless manner. Several recent research efforts have dealt with the services composition problem in ubiquitous environment. However, most of them assume that the composition plan was already constructed(More)
Between 1989 and 1996, 35 patients with prostate cancer without metastasis received intraoperative radiotherapy combined with external beam radiation. 10 of 16 stage B patients and all of 19 stage C patients received additional endocrine therapy for the initial treatment. The radiation therapy included 25-30 Gy of intraoperative radiotherapy for prostate(More)
Between February 1982 and February 1986, 30 patients with prostatic cancer received intraoperative radiotherapy (IORT). First 10 cases were treated by the transperineal approach, and after April 1983, 20 cases were done by the retropubic approach. We chose the retropubic approach, because it has advantages over the transperineal approach, which has a risk(More)
We evaluated a newly developed quinolone agent, tosurofloxacin (TFLX), for its safety and clinical efficacy on patients with urinary tract infections (UTI). Among 138 cases satisfying the UTI criteria, 75 cases were acute simple UTI and 63 cases were chronic complicated UTI. In principle, a daily dose of 450 mg of TFLX was administered for 3 days and for 5(More)
A 32-year-old man, complaining of an abdominal mass, was admitted to hospital where, on undergoing examination, the mass, which had spread widely through the abdominal cavity and the retroperitoneal space, was diagnosed as a malignant schwannoma with a liver metastasis. Thus, a multidisciplinary treatment was initiated and a remission was achieved. Later,(More)
A case of a 37-year-old woman with a retroperitoneal tumor is reported. Angiography revealed that the tumor was partially supplied via an intercostal artery, suggesting that the cause of the tumor might be located in the rib. Histologically the tumor was diagnosed as a malignant mesenchymoma composed of chondrosarcoma and myxoid liposarcoma in addition to(More)
