BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is one of the most extremely aggressive cancers with a poor prognosis after curative resection. L1 cell adhesion molecule (L1CAM) is a 200-220 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein of the immunoglobulin superfamily, which has been shown to affect the prognosis of several cancers. No(More)
PURPOSE We analyzed whether axillary nodal irradiation could control clinically node-negative disease, including those patients with a positive sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB), most of whom received regional nodal irradiation. We also evaluated toxicity profiles that resulted from nodal irradiation. PATIENTS AND METHODS From 1988 to 2011, 2107 patients(More)
Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is considered one of the most aggressive cancers with poor prognosis. The high molecular weight cytokeratin 34βE12 (CK34βE12) is recognized by the antibody, that is expressed in the cytoplasm of epithelial basal cells, and has been considered as a potential marker for prostate cancer, breast cancer, and basaloid(More)
A 30-year-old woman with proteinuria first noted at 26 weeks of gestation was admitted to undergo further evaluation. A renal biopsy revealed membranous nephropathy (MN). There was no evidence of any secondary MN. Prednisolone was initiated 6 months after delivery. Four months later, her urine protein became negative. Enhanced granular staining for(More)
