BACKGROUND To identify organ-specific, metastasis-related factors that can be used to predict the development and location of metastasis of clear cell renal cell carcinoma (CRCC), the authors assessed the angiogenesis and the expression of angiogenesis-related genes in primary and metastatic tumors. METHODS They evaluated intratumoral microvessel density(More)
PURPOSE We reported previously that angiogenesis evaluated by intratumor microvessel density (MVD), expression of such angiogenic factors as vascular endothelial cell growth factor (VEGF) and basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF), and the matrix metalloproteinase-9:E-cadherin ratio (M:E ratio) could identify patients with advanced transitional cell(More)
To elucidate the clinical significance of perineural invasion on bile duct cancer, a clinicopathologic study was performed on 70 resected patients with bile duct carcinoma. The overall incidence of perineural invasion in the resected specimen was 81.4%. There seemed to be no correlation between perineural invasion and site, size of the tumor, and lymph node(More)
We demonstrated recently that chronic frequent administration of an adequate biological dose of the angiogenesis inhibitor TNP-470 (AGM-1470, O-chloracetyl-carbamoyl fumagillol) completely inhibits spontaneous lymph node metastasis but does not have a complete response on tumor growth of nonestablished or established human metastatic transitional cell(More)
BACKGROUND We report a case of a 33-year-old man who presented with immunoglobulin (Ig)G4-related disease (IgG4-RD) forming a pseudotumor in the left paratesticular region during oral administration of corticosteroid for Wells syndrome, which involves cellulitis with eosinophilia. CASE PRESENTATION The patient was introduced to our institution from a(More)
BACKGROUND An immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related disease is important disease in differential diagnosis of tumors in kidney, pancreas, lung and other organs. The imaging findings of IgG4-related kidney diseases are usually expressed as defect contrast region, while cystic formation in kidney is extremely rare. Here, we report a case of IgG4-related(More)
PURPOSE The angiogenic inhibitor TNP-470 (AGM-1470, O-chloracetyl-carbamoyl fumagillol) has been reported to inhibit the growth of human transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) in the urinary bladder. However, it is still unknown whether TNP-470 inhibits metastasis of TCC. Here, we identify an efficient protocol using TNP-470, and optimize its antitumor and(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate whether the third-generation nitrogen-containing bisphosphonate (YM529) can inhibit the progression of established bone renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and to elucidate its mechanism. Antiproliferative effect and apoptosis induction of RCC cells and mouse osteoclasts by YM529 and/or interferon-alpha (IFN-α) were evaluated(More)
Heterotopic pancreatic tissue is found in several locations of the body. However, to the best of our knowledge, there have been no reports on heterotopic pancreas in the retroperitoneum. A case of retroperitoneal lipoma-like large tumor mass probably arising in the heterotopic pancreas is reported. A 45-year-old Japanese woman was admitted to hospital(More)
