A 59-year-old man with an enlarged left chest wall mass that had been followed up for 3 years underwent surgical resection. The mass was pathologically diagnosed as cavernous hemangioma of the rib. This is the fourth case of this rare disease to be reported. However, it suggests that hemangioma of the rib should be considered in the differential diagnosis(More)
Although cisplatin (CDDP) is a key drug in cancer chemotherapy, CDDP-induced peripheral neuropathy is a dose-limiting factor. We previously reported that CDDP-induced peripheral neuropathy, which progressed from allodynia to hypoalgesia, was ameliorated by the administration of CDDP to rats at a specific time. However, mechanical allodynia cannot be(More)
Tissue distributions of Leu-2+ cells in the spleen and draining lymphnodes in cases of clinical gastric cancer were investigated, with special reference to suppressor cell function. Significantly higher Concanavalin-A (Con-A) induced suppressor cell activities were evident in spleen cells (SCs), as compared with peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBLs). As for(More)
The variation in estrogen receptors (ER) between primary and regional nodal metastatic lesions was examined by an estrogen receptor immunocytochemical assay (ER-ICA) in 25 mammary carcinoma patients. The ER status was evaluated in terms of the percentage of ER positive stained cells, staining intensity and distribution of those stained cells. The overall ER(More)
Although cis-diamminedichloro-platinum (CDDP) exhibits strong therapeutic effects in cancer chemotherapy, its adverse effects such as peripheral neuropathy, nephropathy, and vomiting are dose-limiting factors. Previous studies reported that chronotherapy decreased CDDP-induced nephropathy and vomiting. In the present study, we investigated the influence of(More)
To elucidate the role of the spleen on immunosuppression of gastric and esophageal cancer, suppressor cell activities of spleen cells (SCs), splenic vein lymphocytes (SVLs) and peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBLs) were investigated. Concanavalin-A induced susppressor cell (Con-AS) activity of SCs was significantly higher in patients with gastric cancer than(More)
A 72-year-old woman underwent total gastrectomy for CA19-9 producing gastric cancer. TS-1 was administered for recurrent gastric cancer because the duodenal stump was histologically positive and the serum CA19-9 level elevated after temporary regression. The dose was reduced from 80 mg/body/day to 50 mg/body/day because of grade 3 neutropenia. One course(More)
Left gastric vena caval shunt (Inokuchi) was performed in four patients with liver cirrhosis; electively in two and prophylactically in two cases. The overall results have been satisfactory in terms of the effect on esophageal varices and postoperative complications. This procedure appeared to be superior to distal splenorenal shunt or other direct surgical(More)
