Twenty-five patients with thyroid tumors were scintigraphed with both Tl-201 chloride and Ga-67 citrate. All cases showed a focal area of decreased activity with I-131 or pertechnetate (Tc-99m), and each had a histological diagnosis after surgery or excisional biopsy. From the data we conclude the following: (1) Tumors giving a positive scan with Tl-201(More)
An aromatic retinoic acid analog (Ro 10-9359) was given orally in combination with intraperitoneal administration of mitomycin C (MMC), in an attempt to reduce the toxicity and enhance the therapeutic effect. Male ACI/N rats were inoculated subcutaneously with BC50-TC cells, an established bladder carcinoma cell line of ACI/N rats. The chemotherapy was(More)
BACKGROUND the optimal indicator for screening for diabetes mellitus without relying on fasting conditions was clarified. METHODS the subjects were 891 men ages 26 through 80 years (48.5 +/- 8.5). The objectives of this study were (1) to elucidate the efficacy of 1,5-anhydroglucitol (1,5-AG), glycosylated hemoglobin, and fructosamine (FRA) as screening(More)
Of the 843 patients with bladder cancer treated at Kyoto University between 1965 and 1984, 156 patients (18.6%) received total cystectomy. Between 1980 and 1984, 60 patients underwent multidisciplinary treatment with 4,000 or 2,400 rad adjuvant preoperative radiation therapy to the whole pelvis followed by radical cystectomy with or without postoperative(More)
The influence of intestinal microflora on the hepatotoxic effects of dimethylnitrosamine (DMN) or dimethylamine (DMA) plus NaNO2 was studied by comparing the degree of liver necrosis and the levels of serum alanine aminotransferase (GPT) and aspartate aminotransferase (GOT) in germ-free and conventional male Wistar rats (320 to 340 g). In one experiment,(More)
We report a case of renal artery aneurysm ruptured during pregnancy. A 32-year-old woman presented at 38th week of gestation with left flank pain. We performed a cesarean delivery for fetal distress, and found retroperitoneal hemorrhage. After delivery, she entered a pre-shock state, and abdominal computed tomography and angiography showed a left renal(More)
The present work was undertaken to investigate the possible role of microflora in gastric tumorigenesis by the comparison of tumor production between germ-free and conventional male Wistar rats given the same amount of N-methyl-N'-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine into the stomach by catheter during the newborn period. Only 29% of germ-free rats treated with 450(More)
BACKGROUND Obesity in childhood increases the risk of obesity in adulthood. Obesity in adulthood is a risk factor for chronic diseases such as hypertension and atherosclerosis. Therefore, it is important to eliminate factors influencing the development of obesity in children from the viewpoint of preventive medicine. The purpose of this study is to(More)
