BACKGROUND Steroid administration currently plays a central role in the medical management of ulcerative colitis (UC); however, long-term steroid usage causes adverse effects, which necessitates stoppage of drug intake, leading to worsening of the disease. A steroid-sparing, well-tolerated treatment is therefore required. As several investigators have(More)
In our previous paper, the chemosensitivity of human colorectal adenocarcinoma was evaluated against 12 anticancer drugs including 5-fluorouracil (5-FU), 7-ethyl-10-hydroxycamptothecin (SN-38), mitomycin C (MMC) and cisplatin (CDDP), and it was found that the anticancer drugs were effective against those with a relatively high growth rate. MMC was effective(More)
Purpose. To evaluate chemosensitivity and its correlation with expression levels of the multidrug resistant transporter (MDR1) and the multidrug resistance-associated proteins 1 and 2 (MRP1, MRP2) mRNA in human colorectal adenocarcinomas. Methods. Colorectal adenocarcinomas were obtained as surgical samples from 25 patients. The chemosensitivity of 12(More)
A multi-kinase inhibitor, rigosertib (ON 01910.Na) has recently been highlighted as a novel type of anti-cancer agent for the treatment of the myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), but its action mechanisms remain to be clarified. We investigated the in vitro effects of rigosertib on an MDS-derived cell line MDS-L and a myeloid leukemia cell line HL-60.(More)
A surface-reaction system in a nanoliter water pool using an ink-jet microchip was developed. The reaction system in the nanodroplets formed on a poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) coated glass slide increased the diffusion-controlled reaction without using a nano-pump, specialized connector or highly sensitive detector. When nanoliter droplets were placed on(More)
Recently, superficial elevated colorectal tumors have been increasingly diagnosed after improvements in endoscopic instruments and techniques. However, their biological characteristics remain obscure and it is difficult to predict malignant potential. The aim of this study is to clarify the characteristics of superficial elevated tumors in endoscopic(More)
One of the most important information for mathematician is many informal communications – preprints, seminars and so on. Recently, such information about mathematical researches on “web space” increases more and more without its typial patterns or central sites. We, mathematician, need the search system and its interfaces designed for our research style. In(More)
