Six hundred forty-seven cases of carcinoma of the uterine cervix with FIGO stages Ib or more were initially treated with hysterectomy at Kyushu University Hospital from 1973 to 1987. In these, 597 cases could be pathologically reviewed for ovarian metastasis. In these 597 cases, 335 were stage Ib, 71 IIa, 185 IIb, and 6 IIIb. Only 3 (0.5%) of 597 showed(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence of positive peritoneal cytology and to elucidate the prognostic value of peritoneal cytology in patients with uterine cervix and endometrial cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS The incidence of positive peritoneal cytology was investigated in 642 patients including 339 uterine cervix and 303(More)
A growing body of evidence indicates that the pathogenesis of pre-eclampsia is closely associated with oxidative stress occurring in mitochondria. In the present study, we evaluated the degree of mitochondrial lipid peroxidation by assessing the accumulation of 4-hydroxy-2-nonenal (HNE)-modified proteins and examined the expression of mitochondrial(More)
The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) method was used to determine the presence and amount of human T lymphotropic virus type I (HTLV-I) proviral DNA in central nervous system (CNS) tissue obtained at autopsy from 6 patients with HTLV-I-associated myelopathy (HAM)/tropical spastic paraparesis (TSP), 1 patient with adult T-cell leukemia (ATL) and CNS(More)
The purpose of this study is to investigate the side effect in patients who survived for more than 5 years after initial treatment for invasive cervical cancer. Between January 1984 and December 1997, 341 patients underwent primary treatment for invasive cervical cancer. One hundred nine patients who underwent medical examinations at 5 years after primary(More)
Mitochondrial transcription factor A (mtTFA) is necessary for both transcription and maintenance of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). Recently, we reported that mtTFA is expressed not only in mitochondria, but also in nuclei. However, the function of mtTFA in the nucleus has not been clearly elucidated. In the present study, we examined nuclear mtTFA expression in(More)
Combination chemotherapy with paclitaxel and carboplatin every 4 weeks for 3 cycles was administered for recurrent glassy cell carcinoma of the uterine cervix in a 67-year-old Japanese female. The response rate was 56% under computed tomography (partial response). However, the effect was transient even with follow-up radiotherapy, and further cases need to(More)
Using monospecific antibody to human urinary trypsin inhibitor, we developed a highly specific and sensitive radioimmunoassay (RIA) for measuring human urinary trypsin inhibitor. No cross-reactivity of the antibody with protein standard serum, which contained albumin, alpha 1-antitrypsin, haptoglobin, alpha 2-macroglobulin, transferrin, IgG and IgA, was(More)
In order to clarify the role of histamine in the neuro-humoral excitatory mechanism in the stomach, the effect of cepharanthine (an inhibitory agent of histamine release from mast cells) on excitatory response of gastric movement and increase in gastric mucosal histamine content caused by nerve stimulation (vagus and splanchnic nerves) or administration of(More)
