Diffuse panbronchiolitis (DPB) is a disease with chronic inflammation exclusively located in the region of respiratory bronchioles. The pathologic features of the disease are characterized by thickening of the wall of the respiratory bronchiole with infiltration of lymphocytes, plasma cells and histiocytes, and extension of the inflammatory changes toward(More)
In the treatment of diffuse panbronchiolitis, azithromycin (AZM), a new macrolide antibiotic with 15-membered lactone ring, was studied for its efficacy and safety. AZM, 250 mg, was intermittently administered to a total of 60 patients twice a weeks, for 3 months as a rule, and its efficacy was clinically evaluated in 52 patients and the safety in 55. The(More)
STUDY DESIGN Report of a rare case of an elderly patient with late onset of Arnold Chiari malformation type I with associated syringomyelia that was successfully treated with foramen magnum decompression. OBJECTIVE To report this rare case along with a literature review. SETTING Gifu, Japan. METHODS A 69-year-old woman with a 4-year history of dull(More)
Static magnetic fields affect the diffusion of biological particles in solutions through the Lorentz force and Maxwell stress. These effects were analyzed theoretically to estimate the threshold field strength for these effects. Our results show that the Lorentz force suppresses the diffusion of charged particles such as Na+, K+, Ca2+, Cl-, and plasma(More)
Monoclonal antibodies directed against major antigens induced by cowpox virus (CPV) were produced. The specificities of these antibodies were established by immunoprecipitation, immunoblotting and several serological analyses, and from the cross-reactivities of these antibodies with cells infected with various other poxviruses, ectromelia virus (EV),(More)
To study the effects of superselective intraarterial chemotherapy with low-dose CBDCA, Pirarubicin, and concurrent radiotherapy on head and neck cancer, we compared primary cancer response and histopathological effective grades in 66 patients (more than T2) divided into radical and preoperative radiotherapy groups. The radical group (n=33) showed a 75.7%(More)
