Tumor‐infiltrating myeloid‐derived suppressor cells are pleiotropic‐inflamed monocytes/macrophages that bear M1‐ and M2‐type characteristics
Here, tumor‐infiltrating CD11b+ myelomonocytoid cells in murine colon adenocarcinoma‐38 and GL261 murine glioma were phenotypically characterized. Over 90% were of the CD11b+F4/80+… Expand

Penicillium viticola, a new species isolated from a grape in Japan
A new monoverticillate Penicillium species (subgenus Aspergilloides Dierckx), Penicillium viticola, was isolated from a grape cultivated in Yamanashi Prefecture, Japan. Morphologically, P. viticola… Expand
Expression of vascular endothelial growth factor receptors is closely related to the histological grade of hepatocellular carcinoma.
Angiogenesis is important for tumor growth, and is regulated by angiogenetic factors such as vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). In the present study, we investigated whether or not expression… Expand
Serum cytokine levels in response to hepatic cryoablation
Cryogenic treatment sometimes stimulates the immune system by releasing intracellular antigens. We evaluated anti‐tumor immune response by analyzing alterations in serum cytokine levels.
