We attempted to investigate immunohistochemical expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF), platelet-derived growth factor (PD-ECGF), c-erbB-2, matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2), and MMP-9 using surgical specimens of 119 non-small-cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) cases and to evaluate the relationship between(More)
Two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis combined with a non-enzymatic sample preparation technique is useful for analysing clinical tumour material. Using these techniques, we analysed the relationship between the histopathological findings in primary lung malignancies and the expression of a number of unidentified polypeptides that were detected(More)
The performance of the Lung Imaging Fluorescence Endoscope (LIFE) system was compared with conventional bronchoscopy in 158 patients: 68 patients with invasive cancer, 42 patients with abnormal sputum cytology findings (12 early cancer and 26 dysplasia), 17 cases with resected lung cancer and 31 smokers with symptoms. The respective results of conventional(More)
The result of the clinical trial using the lung imaging fluorescence endoscope (LIFE) was reported. A total of 77 biopsy confirmed sites from 30 patients were evaluated. The sensitivity for metaplasia detection by the LIFE system was 96% compared to 28% by conventional bronchoscopy. The LIFE system was found to be useful in detecting subtle(More)
TA01 (molecular weight 35.0 kDa, isoelectric point 5.45) and TA02 (molecular weight 35.0 kDa, isoelectric point 5.29) polypeptides were detected using two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (2-DE). A previous study has shown that these polypeptides are distributed in primary adenocarcinomas and some large-cell carcinomas of the lung. However,(More)
We report a case of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma found at the orifice of right B2 accompanied by peripheral lung cancer in a 66-year-old asymptomatic man. Chest X-ray films showed a mass shadow in the left lower lung field. Transbronchial lung biopsy of left S9 demonstrated squamous cell carcinoma. Simultaneously wall thickening at the orifice of the right B2 was(More)
Respiratory papilloma is a rare lesion that arises in the larynx, trachea and bronchus. We describe a patient with laryngeal papilloma that spread to the trachea and which was effectively treated by Nd-YAG laser. Two years after the initial treatments of the laryngeal and tracheal papillomas, a recurrent lesion (solitary papilloma) was observed on the(More)
To determine the usefulness of tyrosine phosphorylation in evaluating biological characteristics, we attempted to evaluate the relationship between the amount of phosphorylated tyrosine-containing proteins and clinicopathological factors, cell proliferation and outcome in non-small cell lung cancer. To evaluate phosphorylated tyrosine-containing proteins we(More)
We describe a rare case of pulmonary blastoma complicated with systemic sclerosis. The serum alpha-fetoprotein level was elevated at presentation and the biopsied tumour stained positively against anti-alpha-fetoprotein antibody. The alpha-fetoprotein produced autonomously by tumour cells was of yolk-sac origin. Although the pathogenesis of pulmonary(More)
A 31-year-old man was referred to our hospital for the management of progressive diffuse alveolar hemorrhage associated with renal dysfunction. Leukocytoclastic vasculitis was shown by skin biopsy and crescentic glomerulonephritis was also detected, in addition to positivity for proteinase 3-specific anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (PR3-ANCA). The(More)
