We have conducted nationwide surveys of primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) treated since 1985. In the present study, we newly collected data between 2000 and 2004 and investigated changes in clinical features and outcome over time. A total of 739 patients with histologically proven PCNSL under going radiotherapy were analyzed. Seventeen(More)
Atypical and anaplastic meningiomas frequently recur in the relatively short-term after surgery. We have followed such postoperative cases by short-interval repeated MRI and have performed stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) for progressive tumors as a salvage therapy. The objective of this report was assessment of the degree of tumor control, the risk of(More)
In Kyoto University Hospital, stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) has been performed for its rapid palliative effect in patients with recurrent primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL), often in combination with salvage chemotherapy. In the present study, the treatment outcome and toxicity of SRS for recurrent PCNSL was retrospectively evaluated. Between(More)
To study the relationship between antibodies detected in patients' and/or donors' sera and the clinical features of acute non-haemolytic transfusion reactions (ANHTRs), and to determine any gender-related difference. ANHTRs range from urticaria to transfusion-related acute lung injury (TRALI). Antibodies to human leukocyte antigen (HLA), granulocytes,(More)
Chemoradiation therapy is widely used to treat both inoperable and operable patients, and is less invasive than surgery. Although the number of long-term survivors who have received chemoradiation therapy is increasing, the long-term toxicity pattern and cumulative incidence of toxicity regarding this modality are poorly understood. Classically,(More)
To evaluate the specific reactivity of HLA Class I antibodies (HLA-I Abs) in acute non-hemolytic transfusion reactions (ANHTRs) using solid phase assays (SPAs) and conventional complement-dependent lymphocyte cytotoxicity test (LCT). ANHTRs are major issues in transfusion medicine. Anti-leukocyte antibodies have been implicated as one of the causative(More)
