The phylogenetic relationships among Chlamydia spp. were investigated by comparing 16S rRNA gene sequences. In this analysis we used 14 strains of Chlamydia psittaci, including seven feline isolates, two avian isolates, two human isolates, one bovine isolates, one ovine isolate, and one koala isolate; and nine strains of Chlamydia trachomatis, including six(More)
An acute and lethal infection of equine herpesvirus 9 (EHV-9), a new type of equine herpesvirus, was established in Syrian hamsters by intranasal inoculation. Clinical symptoms included the loss of body weight, nasal and ocular discharges and apparent neurological symptoms. Both LD50 and ID50 were equal at 33 plaque forming units. Histological and(More)
The CC-chemokine receptor 4 (CCR4) is expressed in almost ATLL cells. Thus, anti-CCR4 antibodies can be used as a treatment strategy for ATLL. Mogamulizumab (MOG), which is a defucosylated anti-CCR4 monoclonal antibody, showed good results even in patients with recurrent ATLL in phase I or II studies. We treated 8 elderly patients with ATL who were(More)
Elderly patients with secondary acute myeloid leukemia (AML) following myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) are often medically unfit for or resistant to chemotherapy, and their prognosis is dismal. In the present paper, we reported a case of secondary leukemia following MDS in an 80-year-old male patient who was deemed unfit for chemotherapy owing to his old age(More)
