BACKGROUND There is increasing evidence to suggest that dendritic cells (DC) are functionally impaired in tumor bearing hosts. However there is little or no data on the effects of murine prostate cancer (CaP) on DC generation from bone marrow precursors. METHODS Flow cytometry, mixed leukocyte reactions (MLR), and immunohistochemical analyses were used to(More)
We here report a 42-year-old woman diagnosed cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy (CADASIL) by age, family history, neurological findings, and neuro imagings. Magnetic resonance imaging well demonstrated the multiple lesions in the cerebrum including the brain stem, which was characteristic findings in(More)
A36 -year-old man with intellectual disabilities consulted a local physician complaining of a cough, and an abdominal mass was observed on palpation. The patient visited our hospital for close examination. Abdominal contrasting CT revealed a mass with a clear boundary with heterogeneous contrast on the left side of his abdominal cavity. We performed a(More)
Multiple observations suggest that suppression of the dendritic cell (DC) system might be one of the mechanisms used by the tumors to escape immune response. However, no in vivo data are available to support these in vitro observations. Here we have shown that murine prostate cancer inhibits DC generation (dendropoiesis) from the bone marrow precursors in(More)
A 78 -year-old man with rectal cancer underwent abdominoperineal resection of the rectum. In the postoperative period, the patient experienced wound infection, leading to an abdominal wall hernia. Two years following surgery, a rise in the serum CEA level was seen. A metastatic tumor was detected in the right lung on chest CT. VATS right lung inferior lobe(More)
Measurement of RNA stained platelets was proven to be an easy and useful laboratory test to evaluate the state of platelet production in the bone marrow. As the normal value of RNA stained platelet with thiazole orange(TO) in the original method was low, the values of TO-stained platelets in the cases with platelet hypoproduction were within the normal(More)
A 64 -year-old woman was referred to our hospital with a diagnosis of advanced rectal cancer with metastases to the left supraclavicular lymph nodes and paraaortic lymph nodes. Alow anterior resection was performed because of the symptoms of ileus. Subsequently, chemotherapy consisting of XELOX with bevacizumab was initiated as the first-line regimen, over(More)
A 75-year-oldman presenting with obstructive jaundice was referredto our hospital. Basedon a diagnosis of carcinoma of the ampulla of Vater, we performed pancreatoduodenectomy. Postoperative histopathological examination revealed a welldifferentiated papillotubular adenocarcinoma, T3, N0, M0, Stage III . Six months after surgery, an isolatedliver metastasis(More)
