A case of successful renal calculus dissolution by the combined treatment which consists of irrigation with ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA), potassium citrate, and extracorporeal shock-wave lithotripsy (ESWL) is described here. Renal irrigation via nephrostomy, which was the main treatment, was attempted on a 34-year-old Japanese male who had(More)
We collected 1,353 strains of beta-hemolytic streptococci of groups A, B, C, and G (1,176 strains of which were group A) isolated in 26 institutions throughout Japan in 1972-1974. The strains were grouped and T-typed by our specific group-and T-factor sera, and the minimal inhibitory concentrations of 10 antibiotics were assayed by the standard method.(More)
We tested whether the predation dynamics of chub mackerel Scomber japonicus and spotted mackerel S. australasicus on young anchovy Engraulis japonicus relates to individual growth characteristics of the prey and could account for the growth-selective survival predicted by recruitment hypotheses. Juvenile and adult mackerel were sampled along with their(More)
Ferric nitrilotriacetate (Fe-NTA) induced dose- and time-dependent mutation of V79 Chinese hamster cells to 6-thioguanine resistance. It also caused dose-related inhibition of metabolic cooperation. However, no significant induction of chromosome aberrations was detected in cells treated with Fe-NTA up to 100 micrograms Fe/ml of the drug even after(More)
Peptidase A (Pep A) activity assigned to chromosome 18q23 was biochemically examined in fibroblasts cultured from two patients with trisomy 18 and in fibroblasts derived from normal individuals. The trisomy 18 fibroblasts showed approximately a 1.5-fold increase in Pep A activity over that of the control fibroblasts. Agar gel electrophoretic analysis(More)
The patient was a 70-year-old male with complaint of macrohematuria at the first visit to our clinic on June 10, 1986. At that time, cystoscopy revealed a thumb sized papillary tumor and a rice sized non papillary tumor, and the biopsy specimen was pathologically diagnosed as undifferentiated carcinoma. But, he refused admission. On January 30, 1987, he(More)
