A solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is an unusual spindle cell neoplasm that usually arises in the pleura but rarely occurs in the kidney. Despite its rarity, histological diagnosis of SFT is crucial to avoid misdiagnosis with other malignant tumors in the kidney. We report a SFT of the left kidney that presented as a malignant tumor on radiographic findings in(More)
The purpose of this study was to further define the immunohistochemical and ultrastructural characteristics of neuroendocrine (NE) differentiated prostatic carcinomas. Seventy-seven specimens were obtained from prostatic carcinoma tumors during prostatectomy, transurethral resection of prostate or biopsy in 77 prostate cancer patients, and analyzed by(More)
AIMS Although Trichosporon is a causative pathogen of white piedra and summer-type hypersensitivity pneumonitis, fatal disseminated trichosporonosis cases have recently been increasing. However, Trichosporon is often confused with other fungi, especially Candida, in pathological specimens. The aim was to determine the utility of histopathological stains and(More)
The present study aimed to examine the changes induced in proximal tubules by renal congestion using the in vivo cryotechnique (IVCT). Twelve male Wistar rats were divided into four equal groups: group 1 (the control); groups 2 and 3, which were subjected to 2 and 5 min of congestion, respectively; and group 4, which was subjected to 5 min of congestion(More)
Whereas a 2-3 degrees C decrease in intraischemic brain temperature can be neuroprotective, mild brain hyperthermia significantly worsens outcome. Our previous study suggested that an ischemic injury mechanism which is sensitive to temperature may not actually increase the extracellular glutamate concentration ([Glu](e)) during the intraischemic period, but(More)
Kosaku, Kazuhiro, Tomonori Harada, Toyoharu Jike, Isao Tsuboi, and Shin Aizawa. Long-term hypoxic tolerance in murine cornea. High Alt Med Biol 00:000-000, 2017. AIMS The cornea is believed to be an exceedingly sensitive organ to decreases in atmospheric oxygen concentrations. Previous corneal studies have shown the hypoxic tolerance of the cornea during(More)
The local structure within the Co-Fe atomic array of the photoswitchable coordination polymer magnet, K0.3Co[Fe(CN)6]0.77·nH2O, is directly observed during charge transfer induced spin transition (CTIST), a solid-solid phase change, using high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM). Along with the low-spin (LS) or thermally quenched high-spin(More)
We performed electron microscopic studies of eight nonfunctioning adrenocortical adenomas (NFA) and nine aldosterone-producing adenomas (APA) obtained from surgical specimens. A comparison of these two types of adenomas was conducted by morphometric analysis of random electron micrographs. The organelles measured included mitochondria (M), smooth-surfaced(More)
BACKGROUND Cyclo-oxygenase (COX)-2 overexpression is observed in various neoplasms and COX-2 inhibition has been attempted as prevention and/or therapy in these neoplasms. Carcinoid tumors are thought to arise from neuroendocrine cells and originate mainly in the gastrointestinal tract. Cyclo-oxygenase-2 is reportedly expressed in neuroendocrine cells of(More)
