UNLABELLED Histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors (HDACis) are now attracting attention as promising therapeutic agents for the treatment of cancer. However, the relation between HDAC1 expression and the clinicopathological characteristics of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is not well understood. We therefore investigated the relationship between HDAC1(More)
An 81-year-old man was referred to our hospital for the treatment for left spontaneous pneumothorax. A chest X-ray revealed a left-sided total pneumothorax and complete collapse of the lung. After intravenous administration of methylprednisolone, a 16 Fr chest tube was inserted, and drainage was started without negative pressure suction. Four hours after(More)
A 24-year-old man was admitted to our hospital for surgical resection of mediastinal non-seminomatous germ cell tumor after 4 courses of BEP therapy (cisplatin, bleomycin, etoposide). Although it became markedly smaller after chemotherapy, the tumor invaded the superior vena cava (SVC) and the left brachiocephalic vein (LBCV). Venogram demonstrated SVC(More)
Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) has been widely used in the treatment of a pneumothorax, but the high incidence of recurrence from spontaneous pneumothorax after VATS is an important problem. In this study, we classified the groups into two categories from the thoracoscopic observations, and discussed whether or not there was reappearance of(More)
The cation channels of the transient receptor potential (TRP) superfamily are implicated in cancer formation; in particular, TRPC3 has been shown to contribute to the progression of human ovarian cancer. However, the relationship between TRP expression and the clinicopathological characteristics of lung cancer and patient prognosis is not well understood.(More)
