A case of carcinoid of the stomach is described and a review of 100 patients with carcinoid of the stomach reported in Japan up to 1980 is made. Of the 100 cases, the male to female ratio was 2.54. Typical clinical manifestations of the carcinoid syndrome were quite rare. Metastases to the liver were observed in 76% of cases with tumours larger than 5 cm in(More)
A nationwide investigation on the incidence of anisakiasis over a period of 5 years from 1973 through to 1977 was conducted by questionaire sent to 851 main medical centers throughout Japan. The number of cases for all Japanese for a period of 5 years were 334 cases of gastric anisakiasis and 45 intestinal anisakiasis. We investigated both a random group of(More)
In order to develop recombinant Mycobacterium bovis BCG into a useful multivaccine vehicle, we established a foreign antigen secretion system in mycobacteria in which an extracellular alpha antigen of Mycobacterium kansasii was utilized as a carrier. By using this system, a B-cell epitope (Glu-12-Leu-Asp-Arg-Trp-Glu-Lys-Ile-19) of human immunodeficiency(More)
A histopathological and analytical study of a permanent tooth from a patient with cleidocranial dysostosis (CCD) was performed. The patient was a 47-year-old woman, who had 10 erupted permanent teeth and 2 partially erupted and 19 completely impacted teeth, including supernumerary teeth. The erupted right upper premolar was extracted and observed using a(More)
It is known that intrinsic endotoxemia is caused by two main mechanisms, reticuloendothelial system dysfunction and intestinal circulatory failure. We investigated the escape of endotoxin from the intestine under occlusion of the superior mesenteric artery 3 days after 70% liver resection in rabbits. Twelve rabbits were given intra-intestinal antibiotics(More)
In an attempt to determine the etiological mechanism of anisakiasis, immunological studies were performed using guinea pigs and rabbits. In order to carry out these examinations, we used a specific antigen, hemoglobin ofAnisakis larva. We demonstrate that the etiological mechanism of anisakiasis involves anaphylactic reaction as well as Arthus reaction in(More)
We report here a clinico-statistical study of congenital absence of the permanent canines (CAPC). Sixty-five cases (22 men and 43 women) of CAPC were found in the files of 35,927 outpatients, an incidence of 0.18%. Thirty-seven cases had single absence of the canine and 28 cases had multiple absences. There were 42 cases in the maxilla, 17 in the mandible,(More)
We investigated the absorption routes of endotoxin derived from the intestine of rabbits with or without thoracic duct lymph drainage (TDLD). The intestinal circulatory disorders induced were superior mesenteric artery occlusion (SMAO) and superior mesenteric vein occlusion (SMVO). Detection and quantitation of endotoxin in plasma and lymph were carried out(More)
A case of a central tubercle on the lingual surface of the upper lateral incisor in a 61-year-old Japanese male is reported. The morphologic form of the central tubercle was similar to that of dens evaginatus frequently found in premolars. It was completely distinguishable from a talon cusp, which is a protrusion of the lingual cingulum. Radiographically,(More)
