In vivo effects of basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) on bone formation was examined in rats. Daily systemic injections of 100 micrograms/kg bFGF for 7 days caused a marked stimulation of endosteal bone formation in both cortical and secondary cancellous bone areas. Histological examinations revealed that the sequence of responses to the injections of(More)
CD138-positive and Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpes virus (KSHV)-negative B cell lymphoma with serosal spreading of the body cavity and lymphadenopathy is presented. Our lymphoma cells showed pleomorphic morphology and a clonal immunoglobulin gene rearrangement. Immunophenotypically, they lacked B- and T-cell-associated antigens but expressed strong(More)
The mechanism of action of efinaconazole, a new triazole antifungal, was investigated with Trichophyton mentagrophytes and Candida albicans. Efinaconazole dose-dependently decreased ergosterol production and accumulated 4,4-dimethylsterols and 4α-methylsterols at concentrations below its MICs. Efinaconazole induced morphological and ultrastructural changes(More)
Purpose. Postoperative bowel infarction is a major contributing factor to the high mortality rate associated with acute thromboembolism of the superior mesenteric artery (SMA). This study was conducted to evaluate the prophylactic role of thrombectomy to prevent postoperative mesenteric infarction. Methods. An autologous fibrin clot (1 cm3) was implanted(More)
Predominant benign plasmacytoid myoepithelial cells in pleomorphic adenoma and malignant plasmacytoid myoepithelioma cells were investigated morphologically. The cells of both tumors were plasmacytoid in appearance and sheet-like. Immunohistochemically, they were positive for keratin, vimentin, and S-100 protein, and negative for alpha-smooth muscle actin.(More)
The clinical and morphologic features of a pigmented squamous cell carcinoma of the alveolar ridge in an 81-year-old Japanese woman are reported. The tumor was typical, well-differentiated squamous cell carcinoma but had many melanin-containing cells within it. Electron microscopy showed melanosomes in macrophages, melanocytes, and neoplastic squamous(More)
Malignant fibrous histiocytoma of the upper respiratory tract is rare. We report a case of a glottic malignant fibrous histiocytoma in a 46-year-old man. Ultrastructural findings demonstrated that tumor cells were composed of fibroblast-like cells with abundant rough endoplasmic reticulum, histiocyte-like cells with numerous lysosomes and transitional cells(More)
Spontaneous mammary adenocarcinoma was observed in a 12-week-old female SD rat. A movable mass in the right cervical region was found at 11 weeks of age, and the rat was sacrificed the following week. The mass was located in the vicinity of the right salivary gland and measured 38 mm × 26 mm × 16 mm in gross size. It was a firm whitish mass, with a cut(More)
