REVIEW
Ayumi Fukuoka, Tomohiro Yoshimoto
Epithelial cells form the first physiological barrier against invasion by pathogens and the infiltration of allergens. Tight junctions (TJ), a cell-cell junctional complex located on the apical side of epithelial cells, have a critical role in the maintenance of epithelial barrier function. Impaired TJ structures are observed in patients with asthma, atopic dermatitis and nasal allergy; therefore, the dysfunction of epithelial barriers might be involved in the initiation or progression of allergic diseases...

Biosurfactants (BSs) are produced in abundance from various feedstocks by diverse microorganisms, and are used in various applications. In this paper, we describe a new yeast isolate that produces glycolipid-BSs from glycerol, with the aim of enhancing the utilization of the surplus glycerol produced by the oleo-chemical industry. As a result of the screening, strain ZM1502 was obtained as a potential producer of BS from glycerol. Based on TLC analysis, the strain produced glycolipid BSs. According to structural analyses (NMR, MALDI-TOF MS, and GC-MS), the main component of the glycolipids was 6',6"-di-O-acetylated acid-form sophorolipid (SL)...

Regular physical activity (PA) is recommended during pregnancy, but the prevalence of pregnant women who met the recommended level for PA is very low. In this descriptive study, we examined the association between spousal characteristics (belief, knowledge, social support, and PA level) and pregnant women's PA level in 18 couples living in the San Francisco Bay Area. Among other spousal characteristics, only spousal PA level was a significant predictor of pregnant women's PA level regardless of whether it was unadjusted or adjusted by spouses' age and body index mass (p = ...

Disseminated carcinomatosis of the bone marrow (DCBM) is diffusely invasive bone metastasis resulting from solid tumors. DCBM is often associated with disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) or hemolytic anemia. Generally, DCBM treatment includes cytotoxic chemotherapy for underlying solid tumors and management of hematological conditions if present. We report a case of DCBM accompanied with DIC in hormone receptor-positive breast cancer. Due to her life-threatening condition, we used hormone therapies, not cytotoxic chemotherapies, to treat her DCBM...

Programmed cell death ligand-1 (PD-L1) expression may predict the response to both programmed cell death-1 and PD-L1 inhibitors in lung cancer. However, the extent of intratumoral heterogeneity of PD-L1 expression, which may cause false negative results, is largely unexplored. We aimed to assess the intratumoral heterogeneity of PD-L1 expression in surgically resected lung cancer specimens by applying a novel method of tissue microarray, namely Spiral Arrays, which enables us to observe the heterogeneity in spiral-shaped tissue cores...

The aim of this study was to analyze the significance of glucose metabolism-related enzymes in the proliferation of gastric cancer under hypoxia. Four hypoxia-resistant gastric cancer cell lines and 4 parent cell lines were used. RT-PCR was used to evaluate the mRNA expression levels of the following metabolism-related enzymes: pyruvate kinase isozymes M2 (PKM2), glutaminase (GLS), enolase 1 (ENO1), glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PDH), and PKM1. The effects of these enzymes on the proliferation of gastric cancer cells were examined using siRNAs, Shikonin as a PKM2 inhibitor, or BPTES as a GLS inhibitor, in vitro and in vivo...

The incidence rates of hip fracture have been increasing in Japan. Length of stay among hip fracture patients in Japan is much longer than other developed countries, and the Japanese government introduced financial incentives for regionally coordinated femoral neck fracture care to reduce health care resource utilization. The objective of this study was to evaluate whether the financial incentives reduce health care resource utilization among patients 75 years or older with femoral neck fracture in Japan. Claims data from the Fukuoka Prefecture Regional Association for Late-Stage Healthcare for Older People were analyzed for the period from April 2010 to March 2016...

Chiari type 1 malformation (CM1) rarely causes papilloedema, which is indicative of high intracranial pressure with or without ventricular dilatation. Furthermore, concomitant brain parenchymal abnormalities have not been reported to date. In this paper, the authors report on a young woman of CM1-induced intracranial hypertension (ICH) with diffuse brain edema with a focus on venous sinus assessment, and discuss the surgical strategy. A 24-year-old woman presented to Nagoya University Hospital complaining of 4-year history of severe occipital headache and blurry vision with slowly progressive worsening...

Vertebrobasilar insufficiency (VBI) provoked by physiological head rotation is known as rotational vertebral artery syndrome (RVAS) or Bow Hunter syndrome. RVAS most often occurs at C1-2 level with head rotation and presents with symptoms of VBI. Several previously published studies have reported RVAS at subaxial sites (V2 segment), however, tumor-induced RVAS has never been reported. The authors report the first case of RVAS at V2 segment due to compression from a spinal tumor. A 71-year-old man presented with symptoms of dizziness provoked by head rotation or neck extension...

To explore the control of the peripheral circulation of a nonworking upper limb during leg cycling exercise, blood flow (BF) dynamics in the brachial artery (BA) were determined using a sinusoidal work rate (WR) exercise. Ten healthy subjects performed upright leg cycling exercise at a constant WR for 30 min, followed by 16 min of sinusoidal WR consisting of 4-min periods of WR fluctuating between a minimum output of 20 W and a maximum output corresponding to ventilatory threshold (VT). Throughout the protocol, pulmonary gas exchange, heart rate (HR), mean arterial blood pressure (MAP), blood velocity (BV), and cross-sectional area of the BA, forearm skin BF (SBF), and sweating rate (SR) were measured...
