The mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) is characterized by accumulation of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), and mucolipidosis (ML) by accumulation of GAGs and sphingolipids. Each type of MPS accumulates specific GAGs. The lysosomal enzymes N-acetylgalactosamine-6-sulphate sulphatase and β-galactosidase involve the stepwise degradation of keratan sulphate (KS).(More)
PURPOSE The objective of this study was to assess clinical outcomes and fertility in patients treated conservatively for unilateral stage I invasive epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC). PATIENTS AND METHODS A multi-institutional retrospective investigation was undertaken to identify patients with unilateral stage I EOC treated with fertility-sparing surgery.(More)
We consider the supergravity backgrounds that correspond to supersymmetric Wilson line operators in the context of AdS/CFT correspondence. We study the gravitino and dilatino conditions of the IIB supergravity under the appropriate ansatz, and obtain some necessary conditions for a supergravity background that preserves the same symmetry as the(More)
The borderline zone condition between normal aging and dementia is a major issue of concern. Although the term mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is popular, its prevalence and neuropsychological features have not been fully investigated. We investigated the prevalence and neuropsychological features for Clinical Dementia Rating (CDR) 0.5 and MCI. For normal(More)
To define the origin and evolution of recent avian infectious bronchitis virus (IBV) in Japan, a genetic analysis was performed. By phylogenetic analysis based on the S1 gene including the sequence of the hypervariable regions, IBV isolates in Japan were classified into five genetic groups, which included two already-known groups (Mass and Gray). Among(More)
Endocervical-type mucinous adenocarcinoma (ECA) of the uterine cervix is defined as a tumor composed of cells resembling those of the endocervical glands, but recent studies have demonstrated that a minority of ECAs displays a gastric immunophenotype. The aim of this study was to assess the significance of the gastric phenotype. Fifty-three cases of(More)
BACKGROUND The present study was conducted to determine the frequency and clinicopathological features of ovarian metastasis in a large population of patients with stage Ib-IIb cervical cancer. METHODS The study population consisted of 3471 patients with stage Ib to IIb cervical cancer who underwent radical hysterectomy, including pelvic lymphadenectomy(More)
