Current states and future views in photodynamic therapy
Basic aspects of PDT, PDT and photodynamic diagnosis for digestive cancer from the point of view of a clinical doctor, and, finally, future trends are focused on. Expand
Cholangiography can discriminate sclerosing cholangitis with autoimmune pancreatitis from primary sclerosing cholangitis.
Characteristic cholangiographic features allow discrimination of sclerosing cholANGitis with autoimmune pancreatitis and lymphoplasmacytic scleroses cholangsitis without pancreatitis from primary sclerose cholangeitis. Expand

The aim of this study was to compare endoscopic unilateral versus bilateral drainage in patients with malignant hilar biliary obstruction using a self‐expanding metal stent (SEMS). Expand
Endoscopic transpapillary intraductal ultrasonography and biopsy in the diagnosis of IgG4-related sclerosing cholangitis
IDUS and transpapillary biopsy after endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography can provide further information for precise diagnosis of IgG4-SC. Expand
Side-by-Side Versus Stent-in-Stent Deployment in Bilateral Endoscopic Metal Stenting for Malignant Hilar Biliary Obstruction
The incidence of complications is higher for side-by-side than stent-in stent deployment in bilateral metal stenting, and in terms of cumulative stent patency, side- by-side deployment tends to be more effective than stENT-in-stent deployment. Expand
Clinical Differences Between Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis and Sclerosing Cholangitis With Autoimmune Pancreatitis
SC with AIP as a diagnosis occurs abruptly with obstructive jaundice compared with PSC where diagnosis is often based on findings of asymptomatic liver test abnormalities, but only the former responds well to steroid therapy. Expand
Interferon-gamma and interleukin-10 reciprocally regulate endothelial junction integrity and barrier function.
In vivo IFN-gamma and IL-10 may modulate microvascular leakage in IBD partly by controlling the expression of intestinal endothelial tight junctional proteins. Expand
Difficulty in diagnosing autoimmune pancreatitis by imaging findings.
The results of this study suggest that AIP presents a variety of Imaging findings and the most important diagnostic factor is clinician awareness of the concept of AIP and the diverse nature of imaging findings. Expand
Identification of NAP1, a Regulatory Subunit of IκB Kinase-Related Kinases That Potentiates NF-κB Signaling

- 1 November 2003
The NAK-NAP1 complex may protect cells from TNF-α-induced apoptosis by promoting NF-κB activation and NAP1 is defined as an activator of IKK-related kinases. Expand
Diagnostic criteria for IgG4-related sclerosing cholangitis based on cholangiographic classification
Diagnostic criteria for IgG4-SC based on cholangiographic classification are useful for distinguishing it from PCa, PSC, and CC. Expand
