To elucidate the pathogenesis of abnormal keratinization in nevus comedonicus, we performed an immunohistochemical study using antikeratin and antifilaggrin (filament-aggregating protein) antibodies. There were no significant differences between nevus comedonicus and normal skin in cytokeratin expression. Although filaggrin was only detected in the granular(More)
Adamantiades-Behçet disease (ABD) may present with cutaneous and ophthalmologic findings. A 29-year old woman complained of fever and general fatigue, along with erythema nodosum and vesiculo-pustular lesions on the legs, acneiform lesions, genital ulcerations and painful oral ulcers. She also complained of reduced visual acuity, visual disturbance and(More)
To identify the genetic prognostic markers for breast cancer, we analyzed loss of heterozygosity (LOH) at 11p, 16q, 17p, 17q, and 18q, as well as amplification of theERBB2, INT2, andMYC genes, in 131 patients with breast carcinoma, 49 of whom had lymph node involvement, but none of whom had distant metastases. Among the several chromosome arms tested, LOH(More)
Changes in the lipid metabolism of the lung during pulmonary injury were investigated by quantitative and qualitative analysis of phospholipids in pulmonary surfactant and alveolar macrophages (AM) obtained from rabbits that had been given a single transtracheal injection of bleomycin hydrochloride (BLM) 0, 7, 14, 21, and 28 days previously. BLM treatment(More)
We report two cases of eccrine porocarcinoma (EPC), one of intrepidermal EPC (IEEPC) and one of intradermal invasive EPC (IDEPC) in an immunohistochemical study of cytokeratins (CK) using nine different anti-keratin antibodies against CK1, 7, 8, 10, 14, 16, 17, 18 and 19. IEEPC expressed terminal differentiated CK1 and CK10. In contrast, IDEPC expressed(More)
We experienced two cases of cutaneous dermoid cysts (DC). To elucidate the histogenesis of DC, we have studied cytokeratin (CK) expression in DC using ten different anti-keratin antibodies against CK1, 7, 8, 10, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 and 19, and anti-filaggrin (filament aggregating protein) antibody. In the cyst wall of DC, CK1 and 10 were expressed in(More)
OBJECTIVES Recent studies have shown that mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) is similar to intravenous cyclophosphamide (IVC) for the treatment of lupus nephritis (LN), but that treatment response may vary according to location and race/ethnicity. Moreover, no studies have been conducted to compare the efficacy of MMF with that of IVC for a Japanese population. We(More)
An immunohistochemical study of cytokeratins (CK) in a case of trichilemmal carcinoma (TLC). CK expression showed the presence of CK 1, 10, 14 and 17, suggesting that TLC differentiates toward follicular infundibulum. In a comparison of CK expression between TLC and trichilemmoma, the absence of CK 15 and 16 in TLC may be related to transformation from(More)
To investigate the significance of p53 and bcl-2 expression in metachronous colorectal adenomas arising in the remaining colon after carcinoma resection, we analyzed p53 and bcl-2 expression immunohistochemically in initial adenomas (type I), synchronous adenomas with concurrent carcinoma (type II), and metachronous adenomas arising after resection of(More)
