We have reported in this journal in vitro susceptibilities of clinical isolates to antibiotics every year since 1992. In this paper, we report the results of an analysis of in vitro susceptibilities of 12,919 clinical isolates from 72 centers in Japan to selected antibiotics in 2007 compared with the results from previous years. The common respiratory(More)

However, management of the artificial ulcers associated with ESD has become important and the relationship between ulcer healing factors and treatment is still unclear. We aimed to evaluate ESD-related artificial ulcer reduction(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Intraoperative bleeding remains a challenge during endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD). Forceps-coagulated cut (FCC) was found to be effective to reduce this bleeding. However, this involved frequent device replacement, and therefore, knife-coagulated cut (KCC) might ensure an easier and smoother procedure. We aimed to assess the(More)
