POEMS syndrome is a rare plasma cell disorder characterized by peripheral neuropathy, monoclonal gammopathy, and high levels of serum vascular endothelial growth factor, the pathogenesis of which remains unclear. A unique feature of this syndrome is that the proliferating monoclonal plasma cells are essentially lambda-restricted. Here we determined complete(More)
A 51-year-old woman diagnosed as having left breast cancer with axillary lymph node and liver metastases seven years earlier was seen in our office because of severe pancytopenia. She had received chemotherapy including several cycles of doxorubicin plus cyclophosphamide and docetaxel followed by hormone therapy containing leuprorelin and tamoxifen over(More)
Dose intensity (DI) of chemotherapy affects prognosis of diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL). Myelotoxicity is the major dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) of most cytotoxic agents for hematological malignancies, whereas DLT of vincristine (VCR) is mainly neurological toxicity. Although VCR is a key drug and its combination with other cytotoxic agents needs(More)
Recently, remote monitoring camera systems have been widely used for security. In such systems, one important function is that the system automatically detects any change in the scenes from the monitoring cameras. In wireless remote monitoring camera systems, the images of the scenes are generally transmitted as compressed data (e.g., JPEG file), because of(More)
We retrospectively analyzed the bone mineral density (BMD) of postmenopausal Japanese women taking an aromatase inhibitor (AI), exemestane, anastrozole or letrozole, and calculated the decrease rate constant of BMD in each individual to compare the influence of the three AIs on BMD. We also aimed to evaluate the preventive effect of bisphosphonates (BPs) on(More)
Interaction of relativistically intense axisymmetrically polarized (radially or azimuthally polarized) laser pulses (RIAPLP) with underdense plasma is shown experimentally and theoretically to be essentially different from the interaction of conventional Gaussian pulses. The difference is clearly observed in distinct spectra of the side-scattered laser(More)
