The aim of this study is to prepare cisplatin-incorporated nanoparticles based on ion complex formation between hyaluronic acid (HA) and cisplatin for antitumor drug delivery. To prepare nanoparticles using HA, bulk HA was degraded by hyaluronidases (HAses). Cisplatin-incorporated HA nanoparticles were prepared by mixing cisplatin with an aqueous solution(More)
The goal of this study is to develop novel types of polyion complex micelles for the drug delivery to brain tumor. Methoxy poly(ethylene glycol) (mPEG)-grafted chitosan (CP) was synthesized in order to make polymeric micelles encapsulating all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) based on polyion complex formation. Polyion complex micelles were found to have(More)
OBJECT The authors evaluated the clinical manifestations and surgical results in patients with cystic vestibular schwannoma (VS), and investigated the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) expression of the cyst fluid and wall in an attempt to elucidate the pathogenesis and characteristics of this disease. METHODS The clinical and neuroimaging features,(More)
We report a patient with a intracranial subdural osteoma with a large cortical vein passing through the subdural calcified mass. A 60-year-old man presented with an approximately 3-year history of persistent headache. Computerized tomography (CT) scanning showed a homogeneous high-density nodule attached to the inner surface of the right frontal skull.(More)
BACKGROUND Subdural fluid collections appear in about 39% of patients after the removal of intra- and paraventricular tumors. This extracerebral fluid collection requires surgical intervention when progressive fluid accumulation takes place. The authors retrospectively and prospectively studied the efficacy of gelfoam and fibrin adhesive in closing cortical(More)
BACKGROUND Despite the well-documented importance of Nm23 in the control of metastasis, there is currently a paucity of data regarding the role of this gene family in the control of glioma invasion. MATERIALS AND METHODS Nm23-H1 expression in gliomas was assessed via immunohistochemistry, Western blot, RT-PCR and Northern blot analyses. The migration and(More)
OBJECT Galectin-1 is highly expressed in motile cell lines. The authors investigated whether galectin-1 actually modulates the migration and invasion of human glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) cell lines, and whether its expression with respect to invasion and prognosis is attributable to certain glioma subgroups. METHODS In the human GBM cell lines U343MG-A,(More)
OBJECTIVE We determined whether the expression of GRIM-19 is correlated with pathologic types and malignant grades in gliomas, and determined the function of GRIM-19 in human gliomas. METHODS Tumor tissues were isolated and frozen at -80 just after surgery. The tissues consisted of normal brain tissue (4), astrocytomas (2), anaplastic astrocytomas (2),(More)
Although matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) play a crucial role in the invasion and growth of malignant gliomas, their increased activity in tumor environment can be used as a specific target for chemotherapy. We investigated whether polymer-drug conjugates formed via MMP-cleavable peptide linkages could provide MMP-responsive tumor targeting and cytotoxicity(More)
BACKGROUND Surgery for meningiomas involving the cavernous sinus remains controversial. Interdural cavernous sinus is called the lateral dural wall in the cavernous sinus, which is composed of two layers, the outer dural layer and the inner membranous layer. We encountered two cases of dumbbell-shaped middle cranial fossa meningioma with interdural(More)
