UNLABELLED We present a case of a 62-year-old man who underwent total hip arthroplasty for treatment of pathologic femoral neck fracture associated with adefovir dipivoxil-induced osteomalacia. He had a 13-month history of bone pain involving his shoulders, hips, and knee. He received adefovir dipivoxil for treatment of lamivudine-resistant hepatitis B(More)
High-dose chemotherapy and surgical intervention have improved long-term prognosis for non-metastatic osteosarcoma to 50-80%. However, metastatic osteosarcoma exhibits resistance to standard chemotherapy. We and others have investigated the function of Hedgehog pathway in osteosarcoma. To apply our previous findings in clinical settings, we examined the(More)
A 43-year-old Japanese woman underwent unrelated cord blood transplantation (CBT) during remission for acute lymphoblastic leukemia with t(4; 11)(q21;q23). Tacrolimus was given for prophylaxis of graft-versus-host disease. The posttransplantation clinical course was mostly uneventful, and the leukemia remained in remission. Fourteen months after CBT, the(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The histological type of intraluminal fibrosis is an important prognostic factor for interstitial pneumonia. We therefore examined whether transbronchial lung biopsy (TBLB) specimens are useful for predicting the clinical course and prognosis of patients with interstitial pneumonia associated with polymyositis and dermatomyositis(More)
High-dose chemotherapy and surgical treatment have improved the prognosis of osteosarcoma. However, more than 20% of patients with osteosarcoma still have a poor prognosis. We investigated the expression and function of casein kinase 2 (CK2) in osteosarcoma growth. We then examined the effects of CX-4945, a CK2 inhibitor, on osteosarcoma growth in vitro and(More)
A 31-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital because of progressive dyspnea and chest X-ray abnormality. She was given a diagnosis of bronchial asthma 3 years previously. She had received medical treatment, but her dyspnea did not improve. Chest CT showed multiple thin-walled cysts and centrilobular nodules throughout both lungs. Video-assisted(More)
After cotton fabric (CF) and hinoki lumber (HL) were dipped in 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride (BMIMCl) at 100 °C, the BMIMCl-impregnated CF and HL were hot-pressed to give CF-BMIMCl and HL-BMIMCl composites, respectively. The BMIMCl contained in the composites was removed by Soxhlet extraction, and subsequently annealed to produce all-cellulose and(More)
