PURPOSE Pancreatic cancer is associated with the poorest prognosis of any digestive cancer due to the high incidence of peritoneal dissemination, which is the cause of death in most cases. To determine the mechanisms of peritoneal dissemination in pancreatic cancer, we established a mouse model of high peritoneal dissemination. METHODS A novel highly(More)
We have developed a new, three dimensional vocal tract mechanical model for an anthropomorphic talking robot WT-7R (Waseda Talker No. 7 Refined), to improve the resonance of the vocal tract. The Waseda Talker robot series aims to reproduce the human speech mechanism with three-dimensional accuracy. The tongue of the previous model, WT-7 (Waseda Talker No.(More)
We have developed a biomechanical vocal cord model for an anthropomorphic talking robot—the Waseda Talker Series. The model mimics the biomechanical structure of human vocal cords and is made of a soft rubber called Septon. It is able to reproduce vocal cord vibrations of the normal (modal) voice in a form similar to the human. We also developed a neural(More)
A stoma prolapse is one of the late complications and often occurs when the stoma is made in an emergency situation. This complication is not lethal, but causes irritable stoma, skin trouble, and difficulty in stoma care. We herein report the case of a 48-year-old female with an end colostomy that was created as an emergency operation 4 months before. On(More)
Rectourethral fistula occurred in a 64-year-old man after a radical prostatectomy. Despite conservative treatment the fistula did not close spontaneously. Eleven months after the original prostatectomy, an operation was performed. We chose the Latzko technique with slight modifications as follows. The patient was placed in the prone jackknife position. The(More)
BACKGROUND Lymphoma-associated hemophagocytic syndrome (LAHS) occurs in mostly extra nodal non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. LAHS arising from gastrointestinal lymphoma has never been reported. Here we report a case of gastric T-cell lymphoma-associated hemophagocytic syndrome. CASE PRESENTATION A 51-year-old woman presented with pain, redness of breasts, fever and(More)
For sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB), a combination of dye-guided and γ-probe-guided methods is the most commonly used technique. However, the number of institutes in which the γ-probe-guided method is able to be performed is limited, since special equipment is required for the method. In this study, SLNB with the dye-guided method alone was evaluated, and(More)
Four cases of anorectal malignant melanoma are reported in this paper. All patients underwent an abdominoperineal resection with lymph node dissection for a curative operation and received postoperative chemotherapy with dacarbazine, ranimustine, and vincristine, either with or without interferon-beta. One of these patients has been observed for more than 6(More)
PURPOSE Pancreatic cancer is associated with the poorest prognosis of any digestive cancer due to the high incidence of liver metastasis. This study evaluated the possibility that osteopontin (OPN) RNA interference (RNAi) and anti-OPN antibody (Ab) could have antimetastatic effects. METHODS The differential gene expression was measured in a parental cell(More)
A 64-year-old woman was introduced to our hospital with liver tumors. Our examination revealed that she had advanced colon carcinoma with multiple liver metastasis. Without symptoms from the primary cancer, she underwent chemotherapy of avastin FOLFOX. After 2 courses of chemotherapy, she suffered ileus and underwent operation. The resected specimen showed(More)
