BACKGROUND Inhibitors of the epidermal growth factor (EGFR) signaling pathway have a major role in the treatment of KRAS wild-type colorectal cancer patients. The EGFR pathway has been shown to be activated in gastric cancer (GC). However, published data on KRAS and BRAF mutation status is limited in GC and has not been compared between GC from different(More)
Relation of antiplatelet therapy (APT) discontinuation with the risk of serious cardiovascular events has not been fully addressed yet. This study is aimed to evaluate the risk of ischemic event after APT discontinuation based on long-term APT status of large cohort. In the CREDO-Kyoto Registry Cohort-2 enrolling 15939 consecutive patients undergoing first(More)
BACKGROUND X-chromosome-linked inhibitor of apoptosis (XIAP) is one of the anti-apoptotic proteins leading to chemoresistance in several cancers. The aim of this study is to evaluate the impact of XIAP expression upon ovarian clear cell carcinoma (CCC) that has a platinum-resistant phenotype. METHODS Tissue microarrays made from 90 CCC patients were(More)
BACKGROUND High-temperature-required protein A2 (HtrA2), a protein relating with apoptosis in a caspases-dependent and non-dependent manner, has been reported to be associated with chemosensitivity in several human cancers. METHODS Tissue microarrays made from 142 patients with high-grade serous ovarian adenocarcinoma were evaluated to assess whether(More)
A 56-year-old male presented with thrombus formation manifesting as cerebral embolic infarction suspected to be caused by hemostasis at the carotid bifurcation, not by the intimal abnormalities or hematological disorders. Thrombus repeatedly and reproducibly appeared at the same area in spite of carotid endarterectomy (CEA). Ultrasonography demonstrated a(More)
Zapateado is a repetitive percussive footwork in dance. This percussive movement, and the differences in technique, may be risk factors for injury. A survey on zapateado dance students found a rate of 1.5 injuries/1,000 exposures. Knee injuries are more frequent than in Spanish dancers than folkloric dancers. The aim of this research was to study the(More)
