Recent studies have indicated that microglia originate from immature progenitors in the yolk sac. After birth, microglial populations are maintained under normal conditions via self-renewal without the need to recruit monocyte-derived microglial precursors. Peripheral cell invasion of the brain parenchyma can only occur with disruption of the blood-brain(More)
BACKGROUND Post-autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) consolidation and maintenance therapies in multiple myeloma (MM) have recently been the central focus of studies. However, there have been no reports of Japanese patients with MM treated with post-ASCT consolidation/maintenance therapies. PATIENTS AND METHODS We retrospectively evaluated eight(More)
Polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-negative molecular complete remission (mCR) can be induced by stem cell transplantation in some patients with multiple myeloma (MM) and is associated with long-term progression-free survival (PFS). The detection of molecular minimal residual disease (MRD), however, requires fresh or frozen materials for designing(More)
Localized refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphomas (DLBCL) were treated with concurrent chemo-radiotherapy. Case 1 had right cervical lymphadenopathy. Lymphoma enlarged even after the fourth courses of chemotherapy consisting of cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisolone (CHOP). The second case had a pharyngeal tumor and bilateral(More)
