This report describes the long-term (23 years) follow-up of a pediatric patient with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and eosinophilia who underwent multiple valve replacements. An 8-year-old boy with this complex disease was admitted in January 1984 and treated with 6-week course of vincristine, L-asparaginase, and prednisolone, which induced complete(More)
Bone undergoes constant remodeling throughout life. The cellular and biochemical mechanisms of bone remodeling vary in a region-specific manner. There are a number of notable differences between the mandible and long bones, including developmental origin, osteogenic potential of mesenchymal stem cells, and the rate of bone turnover. Collagen, the most(More)
To investigate the renoprotective effects and safety of angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB) for patients with stage 4–5 chronic kidney disease. An ARB, candesartan cilexetil, was administered to 13 patients (ARB group, n = 7; control group, n = 6) with a serum creatinine level of 2.52–5.95 mg/dl whose blood pressure had been maintained below 140/90 mmHg(More)
We examined the effect of dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) on the absorption of a chemotherapeutic drug instilled into the bladder. Female Wistar rats with bladder tumors underwent intravesical instillation of normal saline (S group) or 50% DMSO (D group) prior to the administration of pirarubicin (tetrahydropyranyl-Adriamycin). The absorption of pirarubicin was(More)
OBJECTIVE It is uncertain as to what extent the major bone matrix constituents, mineral and collagen, show inter-individual variation and dependence on age and sex in jawbones. The purpose of this study was to clarify this uncertainty using cadaveric mandibles and investigate the association of bone matrix with the number of existing teeth. MATERIALS AND(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM We recently reported that renal tubular acidosis (RTA) in Sjogren's syndrome (SjS) is associated with high titers of an autoantibody against carbonic anhydrase (CA) II, an important enzyme in renal acid-base regulation. The purpose of this study was to determine whether a CA-II antibody could cause RTA in a mouse model of SjS. METHODS PL/J(More)
