The substance flow rate of PBDDs/DFs into flue gas and incineration residues from incineration of three types of waste samples containing brominated flame retardants were examined. The samples used consisted of PBDEs (a typical retardant), used TV casing materials (actual waste materials), and waste printed circuit boards. PBDDs/DFs concentrations in the(More)
Special polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) standards (native and isotope labeled) were analyzed by isotope dilution method using HRGC-HRMS. Multiple analysis of special PCBs standards by three different laboratories produced the relative response factors (RRFs) and relative standard deviations (RSDs %) was in the average of 0.979 and 3.86, respectively.(More)
The estrogenic activity (by E-screen bioassay), the concentrations of PCBs, PCDDs/PCDFs (and their resulting toxicity equivalents, TEQ) and several endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs: e.g., bisphenol A, nonylphenol, Butyl benzylpthalate (BBP), di-n-butylphthalate (DBP), 17alpha-ethynyl-estradiol or 4-octylphenol) have been analyzed from leachates of each(More)
To investigate the dechlorination of fly ash during low-temperature treatment under oxygen-deficient conditions (thermocatalyic treatment or Hagenmaier process), six fly ash samples from six different incineration plants were treated in a laboratory experiment or in the actual plant, either under ideal (400 degrees C, 120 min) or intermediate (300 degrees(More)
We define and compute many-body topological invariants of interacting fermionic symmetry-protected topological phases, protected by an orientation-reversing symmetry, such as time-reversal or reflection symmetry. The topological invariants are given by partition functions obtained by a path integral on unoriented spacetime which, as we show, can be computed(More)
In the present study, we investigated the mechanisms by which anti-endoglin (EDG; CD105) monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) suppress angiogenesis and tumor growth. Antihuman EDG mAb SN6j specifically bound to murine endothelial cells and was internalized into the cells in vitro. SN6j effectively suppressed angiogenesis in mice in the Matrigel plug assay. We found(More)
We report herein the case of a patient in whom pulmonary and splenic metastases from renal cell carcinoma (RCC) were successfully treated by surgical excision. A 69-year-old man who underwent left nephrectomy for RCC 17 months before was suspected to have a pulmonary metastasis based on computed tomography (CT) findings. Partial resection of the left lower(More)
We generated a human/mouse chimeric antibody c-SN6j of human IgG1 isotype from a murine anti-human endoglin (EDG) monoclonal antibody (mAb) SN6j that suppressed angiogenesis, tumor growth and metastasis in mice. We determined pharmacokinetics (PKs) and immunogenicity of c-SN6j in monkeys after multiple i.v. injections. A dose-escalation study was performed(More)
Control of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDD/Fs) in emissions and thermal residues from incinerators has been a cause of public concern for more than one decade. Recently, several studies showed that other persistent organic pollutants (POPs) such as coplanar polychlorinated biphenyls (co-PCBs) also have dioxin-like(More)
A 68-year-old woman was on dialysis for the treatment of chronic renal failure. FOLFOX 4 therapy was performed following CPT-11+UFT+Leucovorin for liver metastasis after resection of cancer of the sigmoid colon. The dose of oxaliplatin was 40 mg/m2, while 5-FU was given as a bolus of 300 mg/m2, and a continuous intravenous infusion of 500 mg/m2.(More)
