Anserine and carnosine contents were determined in muscle of rats subjected to histidine depletion or excessive supplement. The contents of anserine and carnosine were reduced in the gastrocnemius muscle of rats fed a histidine-free diet. The diet showed especially a remarkable decrease of carnosine content. After rehabilitation for one week, the muscle(More)
Stem cells from various organs have been shown to regenerate muscle cells. Among them, skin-derived cells are promising because of their easy accessibility. We separated murine dermal cells into Sca-1 (+) and (−) fractions and investigated which of them could differentiate into muscle cells. After the cells were aggregated for 4 days and cultured on a(More)
An 85-year-old man presented with pain and numbness in the left buttock, and physical examination revealed an approximately 7 cm mass extending from the first to the third sacral vertebrae; biopsy of the mass led to the diagnosis of CD10-negative, BCL6-weakly positive, MUM1-positive, non-germinal center (non-GC) type diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL).(More)
A 56-year-old man developed epistaxis, hoarseness, and swelling of a finger in March 2010. On the basis of biopsies of the masses in the pharynx and finger, he was diagnosed with extramedullary plasmablastic plasmacytoma, with somewhat immature CD45(+), MPC-1(-), and CD49e(-). CHOP (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisolone) and VCAP(More)
A 78-year-old man was diagnosed as having advanced symptomatic IgG multiple myeloma in June 2008. Melphalan-prednisolone therapy was effective, however, relapse occurred in January 2011 after 21 courses of melphalan-prednisolone therapy. Addition of bortezomib and dexamethasone led to partial remission, but the treatment needed to be discontinued due to(More)
The patient was a 73-year-old male who came to our hospital with a chief complaint of pain and swelling of the left side of his jaw. Computed tomography revealed a mass in his left gingiva but no bone destruction. No lesions were observed at any other sites, and an incisional biopsy was performed on the gingival mass on the left side. Histologically, the(More)
A 41-year-old man presented with the chief complaint of right hip pain that had persisted for 6 months. F18-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) imaging showed FDG accumulation in the right pubic bone. A bone biopsy specimen from the site revealed findings suggestive of a plasma cell tumor. Bone marrow(More)
A 65-year-old man was diagnosed with angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL) with bone marrow (BM) infiltration and myelofibrosis (MF). The BM infiltration and the condition of the MF improved following CHOP therapy (cyclophosphamide hydrate, doxorubicin hydrochloride, vincristine sulfate, and prednisolone). After complete remission was achieved, early(More)
The patient was a 74-year-old man who was found to have a cutaneous mass on his left shoulder in February 2012. Because the mass bled easily and was tending to grow, total resection of the cutaneous tumor, which measured approximately 5 cm x 3 cm, was performed in July. Histopathological examination revealed a tumor that extended from the dermis to the(More)
The patient was a 72-year-old female with the chief complaint of abdominal fullness. A giant primary myoma of the uterine cervix was suspected, and total hysterectomy was performed. Based on a postoperative histopathological examination of the tumor a diagnosis of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) was made in the uterus and a mass in the greater omentum(More)
