A 77-year-old woman was admitted because of bilateral hand numbness and dyspnea on exertion. Her serum IgG was increased, and a bone marrow aspiration analysis supported a diagnosis of multiple myeloma. Additionally, computed tomography scans of the chest showed bilateral ground glass attenuations, linear opacities, and consolidations. Transbronchial lung(More)
We present the case of a 40-year-old man with previously treated thymic carcinoma, complaining of gradually worsening back pain. Computed tomography scans of the chest showed multiple pleural disseminated nodules with a pleural effusion in the right thorax. The patient was treated with carboplatin on day 1 plus nab-paclitaxel on day 1 and 8 in cycles(More)
We describe the case of a 70-year-old man with non-small-cell lung cancer who received erlotinib and developed skin eruptions. He noted erythema on his face, head, neck, a V-shaped area of his chest, and the dorsum of his hands after exposure to sunlight 12 weeks after the beginning of erlotinib treatment. The skin eruption spread only on sunexposed areas.(More)
We investigated the effects of brefeldin A and ilimaquinone, inhibitors of membrane trafficking, using serotonin transporter (SERT)-expressing COS-7 cells. Both drugs significantly inhibited the serotonin uptake activity of SERT and caused SERT to be retained in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), indicating that membrane trafficking is an important factor for(More)
S-1 is one of the effective chemotherapy regimens for treating non-small cell lung cancer. We report of an elderly patient with non-small cell lung cancer who responded to S-1 monotherapy following gefitinib therapy. An 83-year-old woman was diagnosed with advanced adenocarcinoma of the lungs (cT3N3M1a, Stage IV). Considering her age, monotherapy with(More)
Background: We reported our experience with thymic carcinomas and review their clinical features, treatment strategies, and prognoses.

Results: There were 7 men and 4 women, with a median age of 62 years(More)
BACKGROUND Expectoration of sputum can be difficult for patients with respiratory conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, chronic bronchitis, or bronchiectasis because of the effects of decreased pulmonary function, respiratory muscle fatigue, altered sputum properties, and impaired ciliary function. We developed a new method for the(More)
