Forty-three cases of obturator hernia.
BACKGROUND Obturator hernia is a relatively rare pelvic hernia and usually occurs in elderly, thin, multiparous women. Because symptoms are nonspecific, the diagnosis is often delayed until… Expand
Comparison of treatments for hepatolithiasis: hepatic resection versus cholangioscopic lithotomy.

BACKGROUND Hepatic resection and percutaneous transhepatic cholangioscopic lithotomy (PTCSL) are the two main approaches to the treatment of hepatolithiasis, but comparisons of longterm followup… Expand
Low-Dose Erythromycin Reduces Delayed Gastric Emptying and Improves Gastric Motility After Billroth I Pylorus-Preserving Pancreaticoduodenectomy
ObjectiveTo test the hypothesis that early and low doses of erythromycin reduce the incidence of early delayed gastric emptying (DGE) and induce phase 3 of the migratory motor complex in the stomach… Expand
Gender differences in cytokine secretion by human peripheral blood mononuclear cells: role of estrogen in modulating LPS-induced cytokine secretion in an ex vivo septic model.
Clinical studies demonstrate a better outcome of sepsis in females. Elevated estrogen levels and plasma cytokine imbalance occur in septic patients. We propose that gender-different cytokine… Expand
Are the results of surgical treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma poor if the tumor has spontaneously ruptured?

Background: The aim of this study was to clarify whether the results of surgical treatment of ruptured hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) are poorer than the results of surgical treatment of non‐ruptured… Expand
Antioxidant Effect of Zinc on Acute Renal Failure Induced by Ischemia-Reperfusion Injury in Rats
Zinc may have an antioxidant effect mediated by induction of metallothionein. Based on the assumption that metallothionein can scavenge oxygen free radicals, we examined whether zinc administration… Expand
Preoperative evaluation of thyroid pathology in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism.

In parathyroidectomy, it has been recognized that a shift to a minimally invasive procedure may be accompanied by a possibility of missing thyroid pathology. However, only a few findings concerning… Expand
Prolonged Toll‐like receptor stimulation leads to down‐regulation of IRAK‐4 protein
- F. Hatao, M. Muroi, +4 authors K. Tanamoto

- Journal of leukocyte biology
- 1 October 2004
Interleukin‐1 receptor‐associated kinase (IRAK)‐4 is a key mediator in the Toll‐like receptor (TLR) signaling. We found that stimulation of TLR2, TLR4, or TLR9, but not TLR3, caused a decrease in… Expand

Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in humans. However, our understanding of the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying tumorigenesis in breast tissues is limited. Here, we… Expand
Development of a novel approach, the epigenome-based outlier approach, to identify tumor-suppressor genes silenced by aberrant DNA methylation.
Identification of tumor-suppressor genes (TSGs) silenced by aberrant methylation of promoter CpG islands (CGIs) is important, but hampered by a large number of genes methylated as passengers of… Expand
