Lymphoproliferative disorders in rheumatoid arthritis: clinicopathological analysis of 76 cases in relation to methotrexate medication.
OBJECTIVE Individuals with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) with or without methotrexate (MTX) medication occasionally develop lymphoproliferative disorders (MTX-LPD and non-MTX-LPD, respectively). TheExpand

Novel risk factors for lymph node metastasis in early invasive colorectal cancer: a multi-institution pathology review
BackgroundNovel risk factors for lymph node metastasis (LNM) in T1 colorectal cancer (CRC) have been recently proposed, but most have not been implemented because of the lack of validation. Here weExpand

Hepatocellular carcinoma arising from non-cirrhotic nonalcoholic steatohepatitis
PurposeCharacteristics of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) complicating nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) are still controversial. Most NASH related HCCs are believed to develop from cirrhotic liver,Expand

Significance of the resection of ovarian metastasis from colorectal cancers
The incidence of ovarian metastases from colorectal cancers (CRCs) has been reported to occur in 3–8% of CRC patients, and the prognosis for patients is very poor. We assessed the clinicopathologicalExpand

Differential expression of thymosin β‐10 by early passage and senescent vascular endothelium is modulated by VPF/VEGF: evidence for senescent endothelial cells in vivo at sites of atherosclerosis
VPF/VEGF acts selectively on the vascular endothelium to enhance permeability, induce cell migration and division, and delay replicative senescence. To understand the changes in gene expressionExpand

Therapeutic time-window of a group IIA phospholipase A2 inhibitor in rabbit acute lung injury: Correlation with lung surfactant protection
ObjectiveWe attempted to determine whether group IIA secretory phospholipase A2 (sPLA2-IIA) blockade after the onset of lung injury exerted therapeutic efficacy in the treatment of oleic acidExpand
