Neutrophilic dermatoses such as Sweet's disease and pyoderma gangrenosum (PG) are occasionally associated with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). We present here a 67-yr-old male having PG and sterile osteomyelitis in association with underlying MDS (refractory anemia) and Crohn's disease. To establish the diagnosis of MDS, sternal bone marrow puncture was(More)
We previously reported that long-lasting in vitro hematopoiesis could be achieved using the cells differentiated from primate embryonic stem (ES) cells. Thus, we speculated that hematopoietic stem cells differentiated from ES cells could sustain long-lasting in vitro hematopoiesis. To test this hypothesis, we investigated whether human hematopoietic stem(More)
The relationship between the brain distribution and motor activity in mice of the xanthines, theophylline, enprofylline, 1-methyl-3-propylxanthine (MPX) and oxpentifylline was investigated. Their plasma protein binding and hydrophobicity were also examined. When these xanthines were administered orally, enprofylline and oxpentifylline had no effect on motor(More)
