A recent study disclosed that breast cancer cases with low 'tau' expression can predict susceptibility to Paclitaxel administration. In the current study, the clinical significance of tau expression in gastric cancer cases was established by identifying candidates with Paclitaxel administration. Tissue specimens from 20 cases of in-operable or noncuratively(More)
We have previously indicated that a new soluble calpain inhibitor, SNJ-1945 (SNJ), attenuates cardiac dysfunction after cardioplegia arrest-reperfusion by inhibiting the proteolysis of α-fodrin in in vitro study. Nevertheless, the in vivo study design is indispensable to explore realistic therapeutic approaches for clinical use. The aim of the present in(More)
To obtain functional evidence for DCC as a tumour suppressor associated with endometrial cancer, the human DCC cDNA encoding a complete open reading frame (ORF) was transfected into highly tumorigenic human endometrial carcinoma cells, HHUA and Ishikawa in which DCC expression was completely deleted. Reconstituted expression of DCC in HHUA had little effect(More)
We investigated the association between human papillomavirus (HPV) infection and p53 gene mutation in 47 primary uterine cervical cancers. HPV DNA sequences were present in 43 cancers (91.5%), and one of these cancers contained a p53 gene mutation. In addition, one of the remaining four HPV-negative cancers also contained a p53 gene mutation. As a result,(More)
We hypothesized that there are no differences in left ventricular (LV) mechanoenergetics between after hyperpolarized cardioplegic arrest by nicorandil (nicorandil arrest) and after depolarized one by high potassium chloride (KCl arrest). The aim of the present study was to test this hypothesis using LV curved end-systolic pressure-volume relation (ESPVR)(More)
