The clinical usefulness of presepsin for discriminating between bacterial and nonbacterial infections (including systemic inflammatory response syndrome) was studied and compared with procalcitonin (PCT) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) in a multicenter prospective study. Suspected sepsis patients (n = 207) were enrolled into the study. Presepsin levels in patients(More)
This study aimed to assess the protein level of inhibitor of growth gene 5 (ING5) in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) and to explore its roles in tumorigenesis and cancer progression. ING5 expression was assessed in 172 cases of HNSCC by immunohistochemistry using tissue microarray, and in 3 oral SCC cell lines by immunohistochemistry and(More)
ING4 (inhibitor of growth gene 4) is a new member of the ING gene family and is implicated in chromatin remodeling and repression of cell growth. In order to explore the roles of ING4 in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC), ING4 expression was assessed in 214 cases of HNSCC by immunohistochemistry using tissue microarray, and in three oral SCC(More)
Inflammation and tumor immunology are associated with prognosis in a variety of cancers. The aim of the present retrospective study was to identify associations between the neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR), cancer antigen 125 (CA125) concentrations, tumor response, performance status (PS) and survival of patients that(More)
Androgen-independent prostate cancer eventually develops metastasis, and radical treatment may not be possible for patients at this stage. In this study, we examined the gene-expression profiles of two prostate cancer cell lines, LNCaP (androgen-dependent) and C4-2 (androgen-independent), using cDNA-microarray hybridization. We focused on the expression of(More)
INTRODUCTION Inflammation and coagulation are closely interrelated pathophysiologic processes in the pathogenesis of sepsis. However, the diagnostic criteria of sepsis and disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) are different. This study aimed to define a biomarker panel to predict sepsis-induced DIC in emergency department patients. METHODS(More)
Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is the progressive phenotype of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease associated with the metabolic syndrome. The existence of autoimmune features in NASH has been reported, but its significance remains unclear. We herein report the autoantibody profile of 54 patients with histologically proven NASH and further determined(More)
BACKGROUND Presepsin is useful for differentiating sepsis from non-infection related systemic inflammatory response syndrome. However, there are no studies investigating the usefulness of presepsin in diagnosing sepsis involving patients with acute kidney injury (AKI). The purpose of this study is to determine levels of blood presepsin in patients with or(More)
Assessment blood consumption and trauma-associated severe hemorrhage scores are useful for predicting the need for massive transfusion (MT) in severe trauma patients. However, fibrinogen (Fbg) and base excess (BE) levels might also be useful indicators for the need for MT. We evaluated the accuracy of prediction for MT of the scoring system vs. Fbg and BE.(More)
