BACKGROUND: Metastatic choroidal carcinomas that originated from the gastrointestinal tract are extremely rare. We report a case of suspected solitary choroidal metastasis from gastric adenocarcinoma. CASE PRESENTATION: The patient was a 60-year-old man who had undergone laparoscopic distal gastrectomy with D1+ lymphadenecetomy for gastric cancer. The clinical stage was T1bN0M0 (TNM classification), but the pathological stage was T4aN0M0 beyond expectation. Adjuvant chemotherapy with oral Tegafur, Gimeracil, Oteracil potassium (TS-1(®)) was initiated...

AIM: Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) progresses because of the interaction between numerous genes. Thus, we performed weighted gene co-expression network analysis to identify core gene networks and key genes associated with NAFLD progression. METHODS: We enrolled 39 patients with mild NAFLD (fibrosis stages 0 to 2) and 21 with advanced NAFLD (fibrosis stages 3 or 4). Total RNA was extracted from frozen liver biopsies, and sequenced to capture a large dynamic range of expression levels...

Kikuchi bands in election backscattered diffraction patterns (EBSP) contain information about lattice constants of crystallographic samples that can be extracted via the Bragg equation. An advantage of lattice constant measurement from EBSPs over diffraction (XRD) is the ability to perform local analysis. In this study, lattice constants of cubic STN and cubic YSZ in the pure materials and in co-sintered composites were measured from their EBSPs acquired at 10 kV using a silicon single crystal as a calibration reference...

BACKGROUND: Recently, due to the detrimental effects on the ventricular function associated with right ventricular apical (RVA) pacing, right ventricular septal (RVS) pacing has become the preferred pacing method. However, the term RVS pacing refers to both right ventricular outflow-tract (RVOT) and mid-septal (RVMS) pacing, leading to a misinterpretation of the results of clinical studies. The purpose of this study, therefore, was to elucidate the functional differences of RVA, RVOT, and RVMS pacing in patients with atrioventricular block...

Kikuchi-Fujimoto disease (KFD) is a benign but self-limiting disorder. However, KFD is often misdiagnosed as a malignant disease. Although 18F-fludeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake on dual-time-point imaging (DTPI) positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) is useful in distinguishing malignant from benign disease, the latter sometimes mimics malignancy on DTPI PET/CT, resulting in a misdiagnosis. Here, we describe the case of a 30-year-old woman who complained of cervical lymphadenopathy. PET showed increased FDG uptake in multiple lymph nodes, with a maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) of 19...

Drug resistance is a major problem in anticancer therapy. ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters have a role in the multidrug resistance. A new regimen of chemotherapy has been proposed, called "metronomic chemotherapy". Metronomic chemotherapy is the frequent, regular administration of drug doses designed to maintain low, but active, concentrations of chemotherapeutic drugs over prolonged periods of time, without causing serious toxicities. Metronomic chemotherapy regimens were developed to optimize the antitumour efficacy of agents that target the tumour vasculature instead of tumour cells, and to reduce toxicity of antineoplastic drugs" [1]...

In lactating cattle, the incidence of twin calving has many negative impacts on production and reproduction in dairy farming. In almost all cases, natural twinning in dairy cattle is the result of double ovulation. It has been suggested that the milk production level of cows influences the number of ovulatory follicles. The objective of the present study was to investigate the incidence of double ovulations during the early postpartum period in relation to the productive and reproductive performance of dairy cows...

A major goal of testicular xenografting is to salvage germ cells from immature animals that cannot be used for reproduction and generate their offspring. In this study, we investigated whether porcine fetal testicular tissue would acquire the ability to produce sperm with full developmental competence after they had been cryopreserved and grafted into nude mice. Testicular fragments from fetuses at 35, 55 and 90 days postartificial insemination (dpi) were vitrified and stored in liquid nitrogen. Immediately after warming, testicular fragments at each fetal stage were transplanted under the back skin of castrated nude mice (Crlj:CD1-Foxn1(nu)) (35-, 55- and 90-dpi groups, respectively) (day 0 = grafting)...

Osteochondroma, one of the most common benign bone tumors, frequently occurs in the metaphysis of the long bones. We report an extremely rare case of osteochondroma that occurred in the tibial sesamoid. The patient was a 62-year-old Japanese male. He presented with a 1-year history of pain and a hard mass on the plantar aspect of the right forefoot sole. The osteochondroma protruded toward the sole from the tibial sesamoid, leading to pain on weightbearing. After tibial sesamoidectomy, the patient's symptoms were eliminated, and no pain or complications such as hallux valgus occurred after the surgery...

The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical significance of visceral fat accumulation as a prognostic factor in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) treated with systemic therapies. A total of 114 patients were retrospectively reviewed. All patients received systemic therapy for mRCC at Keio University hospital in Japan. The intra-abdominal visceral fat area was determined by computed tomography at the umbilical level. The visceral fat accumulation was defined as ≥100 cm(2). The mean visceral fat area was 107...

BACKGROUND: Schistosome infection typically induces a polarized Th2 type host immune response. As egg antigen molecules play key roles in this immunoregulatory process, clarifying their functions in schistosomiasis would facilitate the development of vaccine and immunotherapeutic methods. Schistosoma japonicum (Sj) CP1412 (GenBank: AY57074.1) has been identified as a new member of the RNase T2 family with immune regulatory functions. METHODS: The expression plasmid Sj CP1412-pET28a was constructed and transformed into bacteria for production of recombinant Sj CP1412 protein (rSj CP1412) via IPTG induction...

BACKGROUND: Although the mainstay of treatment for acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF) is decongestion by diuretic therapy, it is often associated with worsening renal function (WRF). The effect of tolvaptan, a selective V2 receptor antagonist, on WRF in ADHF patients with preserved left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) is unknown.Methods and Results:We enrolled 50 consecutive ADHF patients whose LVEF on admission was ≥45%. Patients were randomly assigned to either tolvaptan add-on (n=26) or conventional diuretic therapy (n=24)...
