Hereditary ceruloplasmin deficiency with hemosiderosis (aceruloplasminemia) is a new disease characterized by systemic hemosiderosis, diabetes mellitus, neurological abnormalities and pigment degeneration of the retina. Loss of the ferroxidase activity of ceruloplasmin results in systemic iron deposition and tissue damage. Neuroimaging studies reveal iron(More)
Although Helicobacter pylori eradication is effective in treating low-grade gastric mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma, the condition in some patients deteriorates even after the eradication. Therefore, it is important to predict the disease outcome before starting H. pylori eradication. We investigated the usefulness of flow cytometry,(More)
Distribution of peanut agglutinin binding sites was studied histologically with horseradish peroxidase labelled and fluorescein isothiocyanate labelled peanut agglutinin in terms of cell differentiation in rat lymphatic organs, (thymus, spleen, lymph nodes). In this study, alcohol-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue sections were used and proved to be useful for(More)
We report a case of genital tuberculosis occurring in the tunica albuginea and the tunica vaginalis. A 29-year-old man came to our department with the complaint of a nodule in the right scrotum. The physical and radiological examinations revealed no signs of pulmonary or urogenital tuberculosis. The urine and the semen were clear and negative in culture of(More)
In nasal polyps constantly associated with chronic inflammation, a dysregulation of epithelial cell proliferation has been described. Involvement of extracellular matrix accumulation is also suggested in the formation and growth of nasal polyps. In this study, we attempted to evaluate the activity of the proliferation of epithelial cells and fibroblasts and(More)
Lectin binding in diseased murine glomeruli was studied in MRL/1 mice, using seven different fluorescence- or peroxidase-coupled lectins: Griffonia simplicifolia I (GS-I), Ulex europaeus agglutinin I (UEA-I), Ricinus communis agglutinin I (RCA-I), wheat germ agglutinin (WGA), concanavalin A (Con A), peanut agglutinin (PNA), and Helix pomatia agglutinin(More)
