Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) frequently involves amplification and alteration of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene, resulting in overexpression of varied mutations, including the most common mutation, EGFRvIII, as well as wild-type EGFR (EGFRwt). To test the prognostic value of EGFR, we retrospectively analyzed the relationship between(More)
Based on the hypothesis that long-term fetomaternal microchimerism is associated with acquired immunologic hyporesponsiveness to noninherited maternal antigens (NIMAs) or inherited paternal antigens (IPAs), several groups have recently reported successful cases of non-T-cell-depleted hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (SCT) from HLA-haploidentical(More)

We report a patient with primary histiocytic sarcoma of the spleen associated with prominent hemophagocytosis. Although thrombocytopenia, probably due to hemophagocytosis, was refractory to corticosteroid therapy, the transfusion of platelets, and splenic irradiation, partial splenic embolization was effective and facilitated splenectomy for a diagnosis.(More)
Eosinophilia sometimes occurs in acute myeloid leukemia (AML), especially in core binding factor (CBF) leukemia. However, the pathogenesis of the differentiation from leukemic progenitors to eosinophils is not well understood in this type of leukemia. Recent reports showed that a novel fusion tyrosine kinase, Fip1-like1 (FIP1L1) platelet-derived growth(More)
Patients with leukemia have an increased risk of developing sensorineural hearing loss. This is a retrospective review of a profoundly deafened patient with acute myelogenous leukemia who underwent cochlear implantation. The 26-year-old patient was successfully implanted with a Nucleus cochlear implant in the complete remission after peripheral blood stem(More)
This paper describes a method to localize objects which are partially buried in an unstructured environment. The objects are limited to surfaces of revolution in the present study. Candidate regions are extracted as convex surface regions from a range data that is obtained by area-based stereo matching. The surface type at each point is determined based on(More)
