BACKGROUND In Asians, the risk of irinotecan-induced severe toxicities is related in part to UGT1A1*6 (UGT, UDP glucuronosyltransferase) and UGT1A1*28, variant alleles that reduce the elimination of SN-38, the active metabolite of irinotecan. We prospectively studied the relation between the UGT1A1 genotype and the safety of irinotecan-based regimens in(More)
We herein report the first Japanese case of vertebral sarcoidosis diagnosed using multiple imaging modalities and a biopsy. CT, MRI and (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (18F-FDG PET) detected multiple vertebral lesions, and a vertebral biopsy guided by the PET findings confirmed the diagnosis of vertebral sarcoidosis.
