Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) suppress inflammation and immune responses. We conducted this study to find out if MSCs attenuate ischemia–reperfusion injury in a mouse model of lung transplantation. C57BL/6J mouse lungs perfused with low-potassium dextran glucose solution were preserved at 4 °C for 18 h. Human MSCs were slowly injected into the left(More)
Visualizing collaborations of objects is important for developers understanding and debugging an object-oriented program. Many techniques and tools are proposed to visualize dynamic collaborations involved in an execution trace of a system, however, an execution trace may be too large to be transformed into a single diagram. In this paper, we propose a(More)
Amida is a toolkit to record an execution trace of a Java program and visualize the trace as a sequence diagram. Amida supports our novel approach to efficiently detecting phases; the algorithm precisely divides a long execution trace into a series of smaller diagrams corresponding to features (or tasks to achieve a feature) without deep knowledge on a(More)
The purpose of this review was to evaluate the impact of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutation status on disease recurrence in patients treated with chemoradiotherapy (CRT) for locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). A literature search was conducted and a total of three studies were analyzed. There was no significant difference in(More)
Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most common and aggressive type of primary brain neoplasm. The current standard therapy for GBM consists of maximal surgical resection within safe limits, followed by radiation therapy (RT) and chemotherapy with temozolomide. Despite advances in treatment, the prognosis of GBM remains poor. Epileptic seizure is one of the most(More)
A 44-year-old man with locally advanced central lung cancer was treated by right lower lobe lung autotransplantation after pneumonectomy using an extracellular phosphate-buffered solution for cold lung preservation. The advantage of the ex vivo operation made it possible to perform safe and definitive cancer resection without massive bleeding. Cold lung(More)
A 72-year-old woman presented with repeated hypoglycemic and hyperglycemic episodes because of an insulin allergy. On admission, she was diagnosed with type B insulin resistance syndrome. She was also found to have anti-insulin antibodies. After steroid therapy, glycemic control improved dramatically accompanied by the disappearance of the insulin allergy.(More)
A 68-year-old male with a tracheostoma due to hypopharyngeal cancer was admitted because his chest computed tomography (CT) showed a small nodule in the right middle lobe. Following a partial resection of the right middle lobe, histopathological diagnosis of the resected sample was that of organizing pneumonia. Eleven months later, chest CT showed a mass(More)
A tracheocutaneous fistula may develop when a tracheostomy orifice epithelializes during a prolonged course of healing or undernutrition. Various techniques for closing such fistulae have been reported. However, a standard procedure has not yet been established. We, herein, present a case involving a 35-year-old woman who developed a tracheocutaneous(More)
