CONTEXT Myeloid sarcoma (MS) is a neoplasm of immature granulocytes, monocytes, or both involving any extramedullary site. The correct diagnosis of MS is important for adequate therapy, which is often delayed because of a high misdiagnosis rate. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the lineage differentiation of neoplastic cells in MS by immunohistochemistry, and to(More)
BACKGROUND The primary goal of breast-conserving surgery (BCS) is to completely excise the tumor and achieve "adequate" or "negative" surgical resection margins while maintaining an acceptable level of postoperative cosmetic outcome. Nevertheless, precise determination of the adequacy of BCS has long been debated. In this regard, the aim of the current(More)
Ionic fluxes are thought to be important in the initiating process of gamete interaction such as acrosome reaction. Different populations of ion channels in rat and human spermatozoa were investigated using the planar lipid bilayer technique. Membrane proteins were isolated from rat and human sperm and inserted into lipid bilayer via fusion. We observed(More)
BACKGROUND Epididymal inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor, also known by various other synonyms is a rare benign disease. Only eight cases have been reported to date. The most common presentation is a scrotal mass of variable duration. For a scrotal mass it is difficult to distinguish a benign or malignant etiology, in addition to the origin whether from(More)
BACKGROUND Ultrasound-guided diagnostic breast biopsy technology represents the current standard of care for the evaluation of indeterminate and suspicious lesions seen on diagnostic breast ultrasound. Yet, there remains much debate as to which particular method of ultrasound-guided diagnostic breast biopsy provides the most accurate and optimal diagnostic(More)
BACKGROUND Tumor recurrence following radical cystectomy for a low-grade superficial transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) is exceedingly uncommon and has not been reported previously. CASE PRESENTATION We describe a case of a young male presenting with anorexia, weight loss and a large, painful locally destructive pelvic recurrence, ten years after radical(More)
Adenosine and ACh contents in hippocampus, striatum region around the nucleus of basal meynert (NBM) and the frontal and temporal parts of rat cortex were measured by a high performance liquid chromotography-electronic detector (HPLC-ECD). Adenosine content in 18~20 month-old rats was significantly higher than that of 3~6 month-old rats, while ACh content(More)
Nanhumycin (NHM) is a new polyether antibiotic, which suppresses the growth Bacillus subtilis and shows an anticoccidial effect. By means of intracellular recording technique, the effects of NHM on mouse phrenic nerve-diaphragm preparations were observed. The main results are as follows: (1)20 micrograms/ml NHM irreversibly blocked neuromuscular(More)
Pinellia ternata lectin (PTL) extracted from the rhizome of Pinellia ternata Briet by porcine thyroglobulin-Sepharose 4B column exhibits hemagglutination activity and carbohydrate binding specificity for mannan. Here we reported the effects of PTL on the resting membrane potential of muscle fiber and on the release of acetylcholine (ACh) from the motor(More)
By means of the intracellular recording technique, the effect of aureofuscin (20 micrograms/ml, oversaturation solution) on the ACh release from motor nerve terminals and on muscle cell membrane potential were investigated in phrenic nerve diaphragm preparations of the mice. The results showed that (a) aureofuscin reduced the resting membrane potential of(More)
