Comprehensive genomic sequencing (CGS) has the potential to revolutionize precision medicine for cancer patients across the globe. However, to date large-scale genomic sequencing of cancer patients has been limited to Western populations. In order to understand possible ethnic and geographic differences and to explore the broader application of CGS to other(More)
Perineural invasion (PN) diagnosed by hematoxylin-eosin (HE) staining is an important prognostic factor after curative-intent surgery in patients with colorectal cancer. However, the clinical significance of PN diagnosed by immunohistochemistry (IHC) has not been investigated. The present study assessed the clinical significance of PN diagnosed by IHC with(More)
PURPOSE In the present study, we aimed to describe the surgical results of single-port laparoscopic stoma creation in our institution. METHODS We examined the safety of the surgical procedure and short-term results in 10 consecutive patients who underwent single-port laparoscopic stoma creation at our hospital between April 2011 and July 2013. RESULTS(More)
The patient was a 73-year-old woman. She underwent right hemicolectomy and D3 lymph node dissection for cecal cancer in June 2003. Although a peritoneal dissemination was intraoperatively noted around the primary tumor lesion, it was resected concurrently and thus R0 surgery was accomplished. Postoperative adjuvant chemotherapy was not performed. During the(More)
The presence of extramural tumor deposits without lymph node structure (EX) is an important prognostic factor for patients with colorectal cancer. However, the clinical significance of EX in the lateral pelvic lymph node area (LP-EX) remains unclear. This study aimed to determine the prognostic implications of LP-EX for patients with low rectal cancer. This(More)
A 58-year-old man was admitted with the complaint of bloody stools. Colonoscopy and computed tomography revealed a rectal cancer with a liver metastasis and multiple lung metastases. After administering a regimen comprising 3 courses of XELOX plus bevacizumab chemotherapy, the sizes of the primary and metastatic lesions decreased remarkably.(More)
We report a case of panitumumab-resistant rectal cancer with HER2 gene amplification detected by CancerPlex®. A 51- year-old man was diagnosed with an obstructive rectal cancer having lung and adrenal metastases. He underwent the Hartmann 's operation, and KRAS mutations were not detected. After the surgery, 3 courses of CapeOx plus bevacizumab were(More)
MED12 is a transcriptional mediator complex subunit, which negatively regulates the transforming growth factor β (TGF-β) pathway. The TGF-β pathway plays a major role in the induction of epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT). MED12 loss induces activation of the TGF-β pathway, resulting in EMT and drug resistance to epidermal growth factor receptor(More)
BACKGROUND Meigs' syndrome is defined as the co-existence of benign ovarian fibroma or fibroma-like tumor, ascites, and pleural effusion. In contrast, pseudo-Meigs' syndrome is defined as the co-existence of other ovarian or pelvic tumors, ascites, and pleural effusion. In Meigs' and pseudo-Meigs' syndromes, ascites and pleural effusion resolve promptly(More)
A 71-year-old woman diagnosed with Fournier's gangrene caused by penetration of a rectal carcinoma was referred to our hospital. Emergency drainage and sigmoid colostomy were performed. Pathological examination of a biopsy sample showed moderately differentiated tubular adenocarcinoma. Abdominoperineal resection with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy and(More)
