Previously, using recombinant human progastrin-releasing peptide (ProGRP)(31-98), we developed a RIA for ProGRP(31-98) and demonstrated that the determination of serum ProGRP(31-98) was a reliable marker for small-cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) (Miyake et al., Cancer Res 1994;54:2136-40). Aiming for a more convenient assay system, we have now developed and(More)
Cetuximab shows activity in KRAS (Kirsten rat sarcoma viral oncogene homolog) wild-type metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). Recent studies have demonstrated that cetuximab induces antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC) in mCRC. We investigated the associations of FcγR (fragment C γ receptor) and EGFR (epidermal growth factor receptor)(More)
The authors report the second case of a female with typical Lesch-Nyhan syndrome. She exhibited athetoid movement, self-multilation, mental retardation and spasticity. Laboratory investigations revealed hyperuricaemia, hyperuricosuria and decreased erythrocyte hypoxanthine guanine phosphoribosyl transferase activity. She has normal female external genitalia(More)
Congenital hip dislocation, which is conservatively unmanageable, has usually been treated using open reduction. However, a long-term follow-up study of the results suggests that this procedure is unsatisfactory. Since 1973, Tanabe has used a new open reduction procedure that circumferentially dissects the joint capsule and produces sufficient concentric(More)
Although number of elderly patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) is rapidly increasing, this population is often underrepresented in clinical trials. Recently, a phase II trial demonstrated that capecitabine and oxaliplatin (XELOX) combined with bevacizumab XELOX plus bevacizumab was effective and well tolerated by elderly patients with mCRC who(More)
