The predictive value of C-reactive protein for prognosis in patients with upper tract urothelial carcinoma treated with radical nephroureterectomy: a multi-institutional study.
BACKGROUND Few studies have discussed the prognostic impact of serum C-reactive protein (CRP) level in upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC). OBJECTIVE To investigate whether the perioperative… Expand

Caldicellulosiruptor bescii is a cellulolytic/hemicellulolytic anaerobe, which extracellularly secretes various proteins, including multidomain cellulases with two-catalytic domains, for plant… Expand
The Prognostic Significance of Vasohibin-1 Expression in Patients with Upper Urinary Tract Urothelial Carcinoma
Purpose: Vasohibin-1 (VASH1) is a novel angiogenic molecule that is specifically expressed in activated vascular endothelial cells, and the status of VASH1 expression has been documented in cancer… Expand
The predictive value of positive urine cytology for outcomes following radical nephroureterectomy in patients with primary upper tract urothelial carcinoma: a multi-institutional study.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Few studies have addressed the predictive value of positive urine cytology for prognosis in patients with upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC). We investigated whether the… Expand
HOXD3 enhances motility and invasiveness through the TGF-β-dependent and -independent pathways in A549 cells
Homeobox genes regulate sets of genes that determine cellular fates in embryonic morphogenesis and maintenance of adult tissue architecture by regulating cellular motility and cell-cell interactions.… Expand
Hemodynamic Changes in Stripping Operation or Saphenofemoral Ligation of the Greater Saphenous Vein for Primary Varicose Veins
The aim of this study was to assess early hemodynamic improvement after a stripping operation or saphenofemoral ligation by means of air plethysmography. This prospective study assessed 109 limbs of… Expand
Impact of an adjuvant chemotherapeutic regimen on the clinical outcome in high risk patients with upper tract urothelial carcinoma: a Japanese multi-institution experience.
PURPOSE Current guidelines do not yet provide any recommendations for adjuvant chemotherapy in patients with upper tract urothelial carcinoma managed with radical nephroureterectomy. We evaluated… Expand
Patient characteristics and outcomes in metastatic upper tract urothelial carcinoma after radical nephroureterectomy: the experience of Japanese multi‐institutions
To investigate oncological outcomes and prognostic factors in patients with upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) who experienced disease recurrence after radical nephroureterectomy (RNU). Few… Expand
Initial experience of transumbilical laparoendoscopic single-site surgery of partial adrenalectomy in patient with aldosterone-producing adenoma
BackgroundLaparoscopic single-site surgery has recently emerged in the field of urology and this minimally-invasive surgery has resulted in a further reduction in morbidity compared with traditional… Expand
Impact of Combined Use of Blood-based Inflammatory Markers on Patients with Upper Tract Urothelial Carcinoma Following Radical Nephroureterectomy: Proposal of a Cumulative Marker Score as a Novel…
BACKGROUND Previous studies showed the prognostic impact of preoperative levels of neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), plasma fibrinogen, and serum C-reactive protein (CRP) in surgically treated… Expand
