We investigated the effect of plasma glucose fluctuation on hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) and plasma 1,5-anhydroglucitol (AG) levels, especially in insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM). Plasma AG is a new marker that provides sensitive and analytical information on glycemic control. The basic mechanisms underlying both the reduction and recovery of the(More)
The origin and disposal of 1,5-anhydro-D-glucitol (AG), one of the main polyols found in the human body, was studied in normal subjects and diabetic patients. AG was detected in various kinds of foods. The mean AG supplement through foods was estimated to be approximately 4.38 mg/day, which was compatible with that calculated in a food analysis (average(More)
To elucidate the value of using plasma 1,5-anhydro-D-glucitol (AG) as a marker of glycemic control in diabetic patients, the relationship between the plasma concentration of AG and glucosuria was examined in 152 patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). After recovery from the deterioration of glycemic control in NIDDM patients had(More)
We investigated the effects of facteur thymique sérique (FTS), a thymic peptide hormone, on alloxan- and streptozotocin-induced diabetes in rats. Pretreatment with intravenous injection of FTS significantly suppressed both alloxan- and streptozotocin-induced hyperglycemia. The effects of FTS were time dependent. FTS suppressed hyperglycemia in a dose range(More)
Thirty three patients aged over 80 years underwent resection for bronchogenic carcinoma. The operations performed were: lobectomy (21), segmentectomy (4), wedge resection (2), pneumonectomy (3), carinal resection (1). In two patients no resection was feasible. Three patients died within two months of surgery. The cumulative five year survival rate was 55%,(More)
An early phase II clinical study of RP56976 (Docetaxel), a new anticancer agent of plant origin, was conducted in patients with primary pulmonary cancer as a multicentered study involving 28 Japanese institutions. Docetaxel was administered at an intravenous dose of 60 mg/m2 based on the results of a phase I clinical study, and efficacy and safety were(More)
1. A major polyol found in the sera and other tissues of humans, 1,5-anhydro-D-glucitol, is mainly ingested in the diet and is excreted in urine. We compared the influence of the long-term administration of total parenteral nutrition free of 1,5-anhydro-D-glucitol with that of total enteral nutrition on the serum level of 1,5-anhydro-D-glucitol in 46(More)
Elective embolotherapy for recurrent hemoptysis was evaluated for its effectiveness. Forty embolotherapeutic procedures were performed in 30 patients. In the short term, complete hemostasis was achieved in 16 of 40 procedures (40%) and significant improvement in another 16 procedures (40%). Long-term, complete hemostasis was achieved in 14 of 34 procedures(More)
