The purpose of the current study was to examine the use of thin-layer cytologic (TLC) preparation compared to conventional cytologic preparation (CCP) in the normal endometrium (proliferative, secretory, atrophic) and endometrial glandular and stromal breakdown (EGBD). During a 6-month period, we compiled 158 cases by collecting a direct endometrial sample(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to develop a new reporting format for endometrial cytology that would standardize the diagnostic criteria and the terminology used for reporting. METHODS In previous studies, cytoarchitectural criteria were found to be useful for the cytological assessment of endometrial lesions. To apply these criteria, an appropriate(More)
BACKGROUND For the current report, the authors examined the characteristic features of morphology and molecular biology of phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN), beta-catenin, and p53 immunocytochemistry in endometrial carcinoma by using thin-layer cytologic preparations. METHODS During a 6-month period, 120 endometrial samples were collected directly by(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of endometrial cytology obtained by intrauterine sample using a descriptive reporting format for endometrial cytological diagnosis. STUDY DESIGN 10,152 consecutive endometrial scrapings obtained in 13 different Japanese hospitals were analyzed. Cytological results were classified as 'negative for(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of endometrial cytology using the Uterobrush in the collection of samples for the diagnosis of endometrial lesions. The preparation technique for endometrial brushing specimens was also demonstrated. In their earlier study, the authors described the cyto-architectural criteria that appear to be more useful(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of the BD SurePath™ liquid-based Papanicolaou test for assessing the cytology of intrauterine endometrial samples according to newly devised cytological diagnostic criteria and a novel descriptive reporting format. MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred and twenty-two endometrial samples were analyzed. All(More)
In a patient with primary lung cancer, increased accumulation of I-123-IMP was observed in a pulmonary inflammatory lesion surrounding a lung cancer which was delineated as a photon deficient area. Ga-67-citrate uptake was observed in both the inflammatory and cancerous areas. These findings suggest that I-123-IMP may have the potential to accumulate(More)
Serial lung images with N-isopropyl-p-[I-123]-iodoamphetamine (I-123 IMP) were obtained to assess the imaging findings and to clarify the lesion to uptake relationships in 74 lesions in 73 patients with various histological types of bronchogenic carcinoma. A decreased uptake area was observed in all 74 lesions in the initial one or two-min I-123 IMP image.(More)
Osteosarcoma often develops micrometastases in the lung prior to diagnosis, causing a fatal outcome. Therefore, the prevention of pulmonary metastases is critical for the improvement of the prognosis of patients with osteosarcoma. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether troglitazone (TGZ) is considered as possible therapeutics in the treatment(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate whether ketoprofen (KP) in topical formulation affected the tumor growth and pulmonary metastasis of LM8 cells, which were inoculated subcutaneously into the back space of male nude mice. At 7 days after inoculation, the tumor was treated topically for 3 weeks with either a KP-containing patch (KP group) or a(More)
