We report here a case of reversible posterior leukoencephalopathy syndrome(RPLS)induced by modified FOLFOX6(mFOLFOX6). The patient was a 43-year-old woman who had sigmoid colon cancer with multiple liver metastases. Treatment with mFOLFOX6 was started. Early in the morning of day 11, the patient was transported by ambulance to the hospital due to nausea(More)
S-1 plus cisplatin is the standard chemotherapy for recurrent gastric cancer. While depression and delirium are frequent in cancer patients, hypomania during chemotherapy is rare. We describe a rare case of hypomania during S-1 plus cisplatin treatment for recurrent gastric cancer. A 66-year-old woman, with no previous psychiatric disorder, received S-1(More)
There is currently no standard method for the detection of Kirsten rat sarcoma viral oncogene homolog (KRAS) mutation status in colorectal tumors. In the present study, we compared the KRAS mutation detection ability of four methods: direct sequencing, Scorpion-ARMS assaying, pyrosequencing and multi-analyte profiling (Luminex xMAP). We evaluated 73 cases(More)
Aprepitant, a CYP3A4 substrate, effectively prevents chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. Oral aprepitant 1 h before intravenous infusion of docetaxel does not change the pharmacokinetics of docetaxel. In practical combination chemotherapy, oral aprepitant is given 3 h before docetaxel infusion. We examined effects of this treatment schedule on the(More)
Whether microdosing studies can be used to evaluate the human pharmacokinetics of new anticancer drugs remains unclear. The disposition of docetaxel in cancer patients is linear in terms of dose proportionality. We examined whether the pharmacokinetics of docetaxel in a clinically relevant therapeutic dose could be predicted from the pharmacokinetics of a(More)
A 28-year-old man was referred to Hakodate Municipal Hospital for examination of multiple pulmonary nodules detected on a medical check-up. His chest CT demonstrated well-defined multiple nodules with random distribution. 18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) showed abnormal uptake in the pulmonary nodules and the hilar, mediastinal(More)
