Human tumor tissue line models established in the severely immunodeficient NOD.Cg-Prkdc(scid) Il2rg(tm1Sug)/Jic (NOD/Shi-scid, IL-2Rγ(null) or NOG) mouse are important tools for oncology research. During the establishment process, a lymphoproliferative lesion (LPL) that replaces the original tumor cells in the site of transplantation occurs. In the present(More)
Patient treatment in a medical linear accelerator is characterized by many angular and translational movements of the gantry and couch. The direction and orientation of each treatment beam is specified by a set of gantry, turntable, and collimator angles. It is possible that some selected treatment field configurations will result in gantry/couch or(More)
Patient-derived xenografts (PDXs) of tumors are increasingly becoming important tools for translational research in oncology. The NOD.Cg-Prkdc(scid) Il2rg(tm1Sug)/Jic (NOG) mouse is an efficient host for PDXs. Thus as a basis for future development of methods to obtain PDXs from various disease types, we have studied the factors that affect the outcome of(More)
Recently, large-scale gene expression profiling is often performed using RNA extracted from unfixed frozen or formalin-fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) samples. However, both types of samples have drawbacks in terms of the morphological preservation and RNA quality. In the present study, we investigated 30 human prostate tissues using the PFA-AMeX method(More)
