To investigate the immunogenic property of peptides derived from the synovial sarcoma-specific SYT-SSX fusion gene, we synthesized four peptides according to the binding motif for HLA-A24. The peptides, SS391 (PYGYDQIMPK) and SS393 (GYDQIMPKK), were derived from the breakpoint of SYT-SSX, and SS449a (AWTHRLRER) and SS449b (AWTHRLRERK) were from the SSX(More)
Giant cell tumor of bone is an osteolytic, usually benign, tumor characterized by the infiltration of osteoclast-like giant cells. The receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa-B ligand pathway has been shown to play a key role in the pathogenesis of giant cell tumor. Treatment for refractory, recurrent, or metastatic giant cell tumor remains challenging.(More)
High-grade surface osteosarcoma is the rarest of the three types of surface osteosarcoma. Four cases with high-grade surface osteosarcoma arising from the distal femur and tibia are reported in this study. One patient was previously diagnosed with Turner's syndrome. Radiologically, three cases presented characteristic appearances suggesting high-grade(More)
Background. Soft tissue sarcoma with a hemorrhagic component that cannot be easily diagnosed by needle biopsy is defined here as soft tissue sarcoma with telangiectatic changes (STST). Methods. We retrospectively reviewed clinicopathological data of STST from 14 out of 784 patients (prevalence: 1.8%) with soft tissue sarcoma. Results. Tumors were found(More)
Soft tissue metastases, in particular intraneural metastasis, from any carcinomas seldom occur. To our knowledge, no case of sciatic nerve palsy due to intraneural metastasis of gastric carcinoma is reported in the literature. A case is reported of a 82-year old woman with sciatic nerve palsy with intraneural metastasis of gastric carcinoma. Although she(More)
I would like to analyze here advantages and disadvantages of Japanese medical care for musculoskeletal tumors in my experience, and to describe what we should do in the future in order to enhance the advantages and overcome the disadvantages. I graduated from university and started my career as an orthopedist in 1977. Also in that year, the Cancer Institute(More)
BACKGROUND Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) may recur locally but rarely metastasizes. Fibrosarcomatous transformation in dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (FS-DFSP) is said to have worse prognosis compared with ordinary DFSP (O-DFSP). Since DFSP rarely metastasizes, there have been few reports summarizing data on distant metastasis cases at single(More)
After the approval of pazopanib for the treatment of soft tissue sarcoma (STS), pneumothorax was reported as an unexpected adverse event during pazopanib treatment. The incidence and risk factors of pneumothorax during pazopanib treatment for STSs have not been established yet. We retrospectively reviewed the cases of all of the STS patients treated with(More)
BACKGROUND In treatment of tumors, we usually reconstruct after resection of the entire femur using only metallic modular endoprostheses among many procedures and defined it as a total femur replacement. We studied the interrelation between the preservation of rectus femoris and the functional outcome after total femur replacement. METHODS We rated the(More)
