OBJECTIVE Intensive studies of oestrogen receptors have suggested extragonadal functions of oestrogen. However, the in vivo extragonadal functions of oestradiol remain unclear because of the lack of an adequate assay system at low concentrations. In this study, we assessed the usefulness of a new ultra-sensitive assay for children. METHODS Serum(More)
OBJECTIVE Free radicals are important in causing neural cell injury during cerebral infarction. Although there was a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study at multiple centers in Japan showing the efficacy of the free radical scavenger, edaravone, in acute cerebral infarction, to date the clinical studies are few. This study investigated the(More)
We report a case of urachal adenocarcinoma, accompanied by a large spherical calcified mass adherent to the bladder dome of a 63-year-old man. The patient underwent partial cystectomy including en bloc resection of the urachus, and remains free from the disease after a 32-month follow-up period.
PURPOSE The major drawback of the current treatment for superficial bladder tumor is the high rate of recurrence. Especially, the tumor with grade 3 component has a tendency to recur and progress in stage. However, we have difficulty in predicting tumor recurrence and stage progression accurately by conventional clinicopathological factors. We evaluated the(More)
A 77-year-old Japanese woman was admitted to our hospital complaining of small urinary volume. Physical examination revealed a light red, edematous, pyriform mass, approximately 7 cm in diameter at the vulva. An orifice posterior to the base of the mass was catheterized and 20 ml of urine was obtained. Roentgenograms of contrast material injection to the(More)
Forty-one patients who had grade 3, superficial, transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder were treated with transurethral resection of bladder tumor between January, 1986 and April, 1998. The clinicopathological studies were conducted on intravesical recurrence, disease progression, and prognosis using multivariate analyses. Intravesical recurrence was(More)
Achondroplasia is one of the most common causes of severe rhizomelic dwarfism. We have previously reported the growth-promoting effect of growth hormone (GH) in this disorder. In this expanded clinical study, dose dependency and the long-term effect of GH were also investigated. Prepubertal children with achondroplasia (82 males and 63 females) were(More)
