Alterations of several microRNA (miRNA) have been linked to cancer development and its biology. To search for unique miRNA that might play a role in the development of anaplastic thyroid carcinoma (ATC), we examined the expression of multiple miRNA and their functional effects on target genes in human thyroid carcinoma cell lines. We quantitatively(More)
Leiomyomas are the most common benign tumors of the esophagus. They usually occur as a single lesion or as two or three nodules. Only two cases of esophageal multiple leiomyomas comprising more than 10 nodules have been reported previously. Moreover, there have been few reports of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma overlying submucosal tumors. We describe a(More)
Panitumumab was approved in June 2010 for use in the treatment of unresectable advanced/recurrent colorectal cancer. Here, we report outcomes and adverse events of panitumumab combination therapy or single-agent chemotherapy for K-ras wild-type unresectable or recurrent colorectal cancers. Our study focused on first-line treatments. The study involved 18(More)
We describe a 46-year-old man who presented with the chief complaint of lower back pain. The patient was diagnosed with advanced gastric cancer accompanied by multiple bone metastases, with compression fractures in the thoracolumbar vertebrae as well as distant lymph node metastases. He was administered eight courses of S-1/CDDP combination chemotherapy.(More)
INTRODUCTION Sunitinib was developed as a molecular-targeted drug to treat advanced renal cell carcinoma. It is not yet known whether liver damage occurs in patients with liver metastases of renal cell carcinoma after sunitinib administration. Here, we report the case of a patient with an inoperable massive liver metastasis of renal cell carcinoma for whom(More)
