BACKGROUND AND AIM Prophylactic clipping has been widely used to prevent post-procedural bleeding in colon polypctomy. However, its efficiency has not been confirmed and there is no consensus on the usefulness of prophylactic clipping. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the preventive effect of prophylactic clipping on post-polypectomy bleeding.(More)
BACKGROUND For endoscopic interventions, heparin bridging therapy is recommended in patients who are at high risk from interruption of antithrombotic therapy. Although heparin bridging has been reported to be effective in preventing thrombosis, several reports have raised concerns about increased risk of bleeding. The aim of this study was to clarify(More)
BACKGROUND AIMS Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) have been reported to be a promising cell source in cell therapy, and large amounts of MSCs can easily be isolated from human amnion. Therapeutic irradiation for intra-pelvic cancer often causes radiation proctitis; however, there is currently no effective treatment. We therefore investigated the effect of(More)
Although second-look endoscopy is performed within several days after gastric endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD), there has been no evidence supporting the usefulness of the intervention. We investigated the relationship between delayed bleeding and hemorrhage of mucosal defects after ESD on second-look endoscopy and analyzed risk factors of active(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM It was previously reported that high-grade intraepithelial neoplasia of the esophagus turns pink within a few minutes after iodine staining (pink-color sign; PCS); however, iodine staining is uncomfortable. By using narrow band imaging (NBI), color change in the area between the intraepithelial papillary capillary loop (background(More)
Cortisol was previously shown to elicit a concentration-dependent inhibition of α-lactalbumin accumulation in midpregnant mouse mammary gland cultured in medium containing optimal concentrations of 5 μg/ml prolactin and insulin. In contrast, casein accumulation under these conditions was progressively stimulated by addition of increasing amounts of cortisol(More)
It remains unclear whether or not human intestinal spirochetosis (HIS) has any associated symptoms or lesions. In this study, we assessed the prevalence of HIS in sessile serrated adenomas/polyps (SSA/Ps) and their possible association. Following identification of early cecal cancer with SSA/P accompanied by a colonization of HIS, we went on to conduct a(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Use of proton pump inhibitors (PPI) is histologically associated with oxyntic gland dilatations. Two interesting mucosal changes are often detected endoscopically in patients who use PPI: gastric cracked mucosa (GCM) and gastric cobblestone-like mucosa (GCSM). The aim of the present study was to clarify the relationship between PPI use(More)
A 70-year-old male, who had undergone resection of gastric malignant lymphoma in 1992, presented with cervical lymph node swelling in January 2008. Pathological examination of the lymph node biopsy demonstrated recurrence of malignant lymphoma, and he was treated with the R-CHOP regimen. Although he did not develop fever during the first through third(More)
