Ultrasound examinations were performed in 36 patients with Crohn's disease, 28 with ulcerative colitis, and 50 with no bowel disease. The pathological findings were classified into three types and compared with the radiographic and/or colonoscopic findings. Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis could be detected by ultrasonography with a sensitivity of 86%(More)
From April 1998 to March 2000, a cytomegalovirus (CMV) antigenemia-guided pre-emptive approach for CMV disease was evaluated in 77 adult patients who received allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation at the National Cancer Center Hospital. A CMV antigenemia assay was performed at least once a week after engraftment. High-level antigenemia was(More)
Endocardial monophasic action potentials (MAPs) were recorded at the right ventricular apex in a patient with QTU prolongation and torsade de pointes (TdP) in association with marked bradycardia and hypokalemia. There was a distinct hump on phase 3 repolarization of the MAPs characteristic of early afterdepolarizations (EADs), which was associated with(More)
Cytotoxic endoperoxides, haterumadioxins A (1) and B (2), were isolated from the Okinawan sponge Plakortis lita. Their structures were determined by spectroscopic analysis. The absolute stereostructure of 1 was determined by degradation reactions and the modified Mosher's method. Haterumadioxins showed significant cytotoxicity against 38 human cancer cell(More)
To evaluate the efficacy of long-term administration of acyclovir as prophylaxis against varicella-zoster virus (VZV) reactivation, we analyzed the medical records of 86 consecutive adult patients who obtained engraftment after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation from January 1996 to March 2000. We started long-term low-dose (400 mg/day) oral(More)
There are two forms of orosomucoid (ORM) in the sera of most individuals. They are encoded by two separate but closely linked loci, ORM1 and ORM2. A number of variants have been identified in various populations. Duplication and nonexpression are also observed in some populations. Thus, the ORM system is very complicated and its nomenclature is very(More)
Factor I (C3b inactivator) polymorphism in the Japanese (in Western and Southern Japan), Taiwanese, Nepalese and French was studied using isoelectric focusing on polyacrylamide gels. The exposure of passively blotted nitrocellulose membranes to glutaraldehyde vapor facilitated the subsequent immunodetection of a low concentration of factor I and permitted(More)
