The aim of this study was to evaluate serum midkine (S-MK) concentrations as a prognostic tumour marker in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). We measured S-MK concentrations in patients with OSCC and healthy volunteers. In addition, we performed real-time quantitative reverse transcription-PCR analysis and immunohistochemistry with fresh tumour samples.(More)
From November 1987 to October 1990, we investigated the efficacy of povidine iodine gargle solution (Isodine Gargle) for preventing stomatitis in 26 patients (19 males and 7 females; mean age 53.2 years) with acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). The patients were given a concentrated preparation of the gargle solution which they had to dilute 50 times, and(More)
A new artificial carrier particle agglutination test using polyamino acid (polyamino PA) was developed for anti HTLV-I assay. We carried out the comparative study on anti-HTLV-I among polyamino PA, gelatin PA, EIA and WB methods. All of 76 ATL, 20 HAM/TSP, 53 patients with uveitis and 50 HTLV-I carriers were seropositive and 50 HTLV-I non carriers were(More)
EIA (Eitest: Eisai) and Gelatin Particle Agglutination: PA (SERODIA: Fujirebio) assays were performed for the detection of HTLV-I antibodies with 10,780 sera from patients since 1986. Eleven point five percent were reactive by both EIA and PA, while 1.1% was PA(+), EIA(-), these PA false positive occurred on low titer. Conversely 0.2% on EIA positive seems(More)
