We have treated two patients with extramammary Paget's disease/carcinoma (EMPD/C), a 62-year-old woman and a 78-year-old man. In both patients, lymph nodes in the areas of the bilateral inguinal, external iliac arteries, and abdominal aorta were affected. After surgery, they underwent 5 courses of systemic combination chemotherapy at 4-week intervals to(More)
Construction of an active composite with multicolor visible and broadband near-infrared luminescence is of great technological importance for various applications, including three-dimensional (3D) display, broadband telecommunication, and tunable lasers. The major challenge is the effective management of energy transfer between different dopants in(More)
BACKGROUND Most estrogen dermatitides are induced by local or systemic contact dermatitis where dendritic cells are central, and tamoxifen has a blocking effect on dendritic cells. METHODS We present 5 cases of estrogen dermatitis in which the clinical features were prurigo, urticaria, acneiform eruption and annular erythema. RESULTS Tamoxifen was(More)
Good solvent effects of C(70) cluster formations and their electron-transporting and photoelectrochemical properties have been systematically examined for the first time. Nano-to-micrometer scale assemblies of C(70) with different morphologies were prepared by rapidly injecting poor solvent (i.e., acetonitrile) into a solution of C(70) dissolved in various(More)
A procedure of femtosecond pulse laser irradiation was incorporated into the synthesis of zinc oxide (ZnO) nanowires in aqueous solutions to investigate the photo-initiated heterogeneous nucleation induced by the irradiation and the associated nanowire growth. Elongated ZnO nanowires with smooth planes and end tips were successfully grown following the(More)
The structural changes inside rock-salt crystals after femtosecond (fs) laser irradiation are investigated using a microscopic pump-probe technique and an elastic simulation. The pump-probe imaging shows that a squircle-shaped stress wave is generated after the fs laser irradiation as a result of the relaxation of thermal stress in the photoexcited region.(More)
This paper reports an asymmetry structure-mediated route for highly localized control of light-matter interactions by using tapered TiO(2). We demonstrate for the first time that the growth habit of Ag nanostructures on tapered TiO(2) can be tuned by controllable photolysis. Site-selective anchoring of Ag nanoparticles or nanowires on tapered TiO(2) can(More)
