Improvement of the lactic acid resistance of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is important for the application of the yeast in industrial production of lactic acid from renewable resources. However, we still do not know the precise mechanisms of the lactic acid adaptation response in yeast and, consequently, lack effective approaches for improving its(More)
The purpose of this study was to clarify the effect of preoperative chemoradiotherapy (CRT) for esophageal cancer on the postoperative course, and to determine the clinical significance of salvage esophagectomy after definitive CRT. Based on their preoperative treatment, 477 patients with esophageal cancer were classified into three groups: 253 patients who(More)
Systemic Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-positive T-cell lymphoproliferative disease (LPD) of childhood is an extremely rare and distinct clinicopathological entity. The majority of these cases occur with an apparent primary EBV infection. In this study, we describe a case of systemic EBV-positive T-cell LPD of childhood in a 23-year-old female with primary EBV(More)
The importance of Notch signaling in colorectal cancer (CRC) carcinogenesis and progression has previously been presented. Increased expression of Jagged-1 (JAG1), a Notch ligand, in CRC has been revealed, but the detailed prognostic significance of JAG1 in CRC has not been determined. Protein expression of JAG1 was examined using immunohistochemistry in(More)
In colorectal cancer (CRC), the BRAF V600E mutation is an important biomarker for poor prognosis, while high microsatellite instability (MSI-H) indicates good prognosis. Using a commercial BRAF V600E-specific antibody, we investigated the BRAF V600E mutation according to immunohistochemistry (IHC) and the MSI status in Japanese patients with CRC. In this(More)
This paper describes a method for cooperative play among 3 robots in order to score a goal in the RoboCup Small Size League. In RoboCup 2005 Osaka, our team introduced a new attacking play, where one robot kicks a ball and the other receives and immediately shoots the ball on goal. However, due to the relatively slow kicking speed of the robot, top opponent(More)
Hepatic artery injury is one complication associated with surgery for gastric cancer. This complication does not occur frequently, but it can cause serious problems. Anatomical variations of the hepatic arteries are thought to be a factor in such injuries. Recognizing vascular variations before the operation is thus very important. This report presents a(More)
BACKGROUND Pathological examination after endoscopic submucosal dissection revealed that a 62-year-old male had esophageal squamous cell carcinoma with lamina propria mucosal invasion and lymphatic permeation. CASE PRESENTATION The patient underwent subtotal esophagectomy and reconstruction as an additional therapy. At 3 years and 4 months after(More)
