To evaluate whether green tea consumption provides protection against stomach cancer death, relative risks were calculated using Cox proportional hazards regression analysis in the Japan Collaborative Study for Evaluation of Cancer Risk, sponsored by the Ministry of Health and Welfare (JACC Study). The study was based on 30 370 men and 42 481 women aged(More)
To evaluate whether green tea consumption provides protection against stomach cancer, the relative risks (RRs) were calculated in the Japan Collaborative Study for Evaluation of Cancer Risk, sponsored by the Ministry of Health and Welfare (JACC Study). The study was based on 157 incident cases and 285 controls aged 40-79 years. Cox proportional hazards(More)
IN ACUTE leukaemia, mature granulo-cytes are usually reduced in peripheral blood and bone marrow. In such cases it could be considered that normal haemopoietic stem cells are merely replaced by leukaemic cells in haemopoietic organs or that normal haemopoietic stem cells are suppressed by leukaemic cells through such mechanisms as cell-to-cell interaction,(More)
The influence of leukaemic cells on the colony formation of human bone marrow cells was studied in vitro as an extension of our previous work (Chiyoda et al., 1975). An extract of leukaemic bone marrow cells significantly suppressed colony forming ability of the normal bone marrow cells, whereas an extract of normal bone marrow cells did not suppress it(More)
