Primary liver cancers, which are generally hypervascular in nature, depend highly on blood supply. So far there are few reports on apoptosis of liver cancer cells upon deprivation of serum-derived survival factors. The aim of our study is to clarify molecular mechanisms by which liver cancer cells survive with the aid of serum. In HepG2 liver cancer cells,(More)
Recently, peripheral B cells have been shown to undergo secondary V(D)J rearrangement of immunoglobulin genes, but the physiological role of this event has not been fully elucidated. To investigate whether rearrangement of L chain genes in the periphery is involved in the generation of high-affinity antibodies (Ab), we used the 17.2.25 rearranged VHDJH gene(More)
The patient was a 49-year-old woman. Chemotherapy was conducted combining paclitaxel (TXL) and TS-1 under the diagnosis of non-resectable advanced gastric cancer with peritoneal dissemination. The administration schedule was as follows: 60 mg/m2 of TXL on days 1, 8 and 15 intravenously and 120 mg/day of TS-1/on days 1 5, 8-12, and 15-19 orally. One cycle(More)
