To evaluate the clinicopathological significance of matrix metalloproteinase-7 (MMP-7) expression in gastric carcinoma, we investigated immunohistochemically MMP-7 expression in 214 gastric carcinomas, and examined its relations with the clinicopathologic parameters including patient prognosis. MMP-7 expressed predominantly in cancer cells, and(More)
AIMS In order to estimate the prognostic values of p27(Kip1), p21(Waf1/Cip1), and p53, alone and in combination, we investigated immunohistochemically the expression of p27(Kip1), p21(Waf1/Cip1), and p53 proteins in gastric carcinomas. METHODS AND RESULTS The expression of p27(Kip1), p21(Waf1/Cip1), and p53 was immunohistochemically examined in 140(More)
We report here a case of rectal cancer with synchronous multiple liver metastases successfully treated with a combined chemotherapy of modified FOLFOX6 (mFOLFOX6) and bevacizumab. A 49-year-old man was admitted to our hospital due to constipation and anorexia. Abdominal ultrasonography and abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan revealed a rectal tumor (Rs)(More)
We report here a case of recurrent esophageal cancer successfully treated by cervical lymph node dissection and chemo-radiation therapy. A 66-year-old woman received esophagectomy for advanced esophageal cancer in February 2003. Cervical CT and ultrasonography revealed multiple lymph node metastases in February 2008. Surgical excision was performed to the(More)
We report here a case of rapidly progressing anorectal malignant melanoma. A 66-year-old man was admitted to our hospital due to bowel abnormalities and anal pain. Detailed gastrointestinal examination revealed a nigrities-like type 1 tumor that occupied a semicircle in the intestinal lumen from the lower rectum to the anatomical anal canal. We diagnosed(More)
