BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Previous studies comparing survival outcomes between patients who did and did not undergo additional surgery after non-curative endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) for early gastric cancer (EGC) were limited in that the baseline characteristics differed significantly between the groups. We aimed to address this limitation and compared survival outcomes between these two groups using propensity score matching analysis. METHODS: The study enrolled 1969 consecutive patients who underwent non-curative ESD for EGC between 2000 and 2011 at any of 19 institutions across Japan...

 We developed a new inhalation exposure method to evaluate effects of synthetic cannabimimetics that are being distributed as new, unregulated drugs in the Tokyo area. We selected the commercial product "SOUTOU" containing AB-CHMINACA and 5F-AMB as the test drug and dried marshmallow (Althaea officinalis) leaves as the negative control. A half cigarette packed with dried marshmallow leaves or SOUTOU was ignited, then mainstream smoke from each was delivered to five mice in an exposure box. After the cigarettes were fully consumed, neurobehavioral observations and a catalepsy test were performed at 15, 30 and 60 min after exposure...

The preparation of stable isotope-labeled proteins is important for NMR studies, however, it is often hampered in the case of eukaryotic proteins which are not readily expressed in Escherichia coli. Such proteins are often conveniently investigated following post-expression chemical isotope tagging. Enzymatic (15)N-labeling of glutamine side chains using transglutaminase (TGase) has been applied to several proteins for NMR studies. (19)F-labeling is useful for interaction studies due to its high NMR sensitivity and susceptibility...

PURPOSE: Lymphangioleiomyomatosis is a rare lung disease caused by proliferation of abnormal smooth muscle-like cells and typically occurs in premenopausal women. Sirolimus is now the first-line drug for the treatment of lymphangioleiomyomatosis. Sirolimus-induced stomatitis is the most frequent adverse event experienced during treatment. To identify risk factors, we investigated the association of stomatitis incidence with patient background data and treatment parameters, using data from the multicenter long-term sirolimus trial...

The preventive effect of coffee on cancer at different sites has been reported, although the effect on all-sites cancer incidence has not been extensively investigated. We evaluated the association between frequency of coffee consumption and risk of all-sites cancer incidence and mortality among 39,685 men and 43,124 women (age 40 to 79 years, at baseline), in the Three Prefecture Cohort Study. The association between frequency of coffee consumption and risk of all-sites cancer incidence and mortality was assessed by a Cox proportional hazards regression model, adjusted for potential confounders...

Autophagy, an intracellular degradation system, is highly conserved among eukaryotes from yeast to mammalian cells. In the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, most Atg (autophagy-related) proteins, which are essential for autophagosome formation, are recruited to a restricted region close to the vacuole, termed the vacuole-isolation membrane contact site (VICS), upon induction of autophagy. Subsequently, the isolation membrane (IM) expands and sequesters cytoplasmic materials to become a closed autophagosome. In S...

Fibrosis involves the production of extracellular matrix proteins in tissues and is often preceded by injury or trauma. In pleural fibrosis excess collagen deposition results in pleural thickening, increased stiffness and impaired lung function. Myofibroblasts are responsible for increased collagen deposition, however the molecular mechanism of transportation of procollagen containing vesicles for secretion is unknown. Here, we studied the role of kinesin on collagen-1 (Col-1) containing vesicle transportation in human pleural mesothelial cells (HPMCs)...

Inherited optic neuropathies (IONs) are neurodegenerative disorders affecting the optic nerve and the nervous system. Dominant and recessive IONs are known. Many of the dominant IONs are caused by mutations of OPA1. Autosomal-recessive IONs are rare. OPA10 is an autosomal-recessive ION due to mutations in RTN4IP1. Patients with RTN4IP1 mutations show extraocular manifestations. We report brothers with optic neuropathy who had novel mutations in the RTN4IP1 gene. This is the first report of Japanese patients with OPA10...

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of 3rd-generation (3G) cellular phone radiofrequency-electromagnetic wave (RF-EMW) exposure on fertilization and embryogenesis in mice. Oocytes and spermatozoa were exposed to 3G cellular phone RF-EMWs, 1.95 GHz wideband code division multiple access, at a specific absorption rate of 2 mW/g for 60 min, or to sham exposure. After RF-EMW exposure, in vitro fertilization and intracytoplasmic sperm injection were performed. Rates of fertilization, embryogenesis (8-cell embryo, blastocyst), and chromosome aberration were compared between the combined spermatozoa and oocyte groups: both exposed, both non-exposed, one exposed, and the other non-exposed...

Immunosuppressive therapy for prevention of acute rejection episode occasionally causes serious adverse effects, and thus it is important to develop new therapeutic approach for renal transplant recipients. This study evaluated the immunosuppressive pharmacodynamics of tetrandrine (TET) and/or methylprednisolone (MP) in haemodialysis patients in vitro by using the peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) isolated from whole blood of haemodialysis patients. The median (range) of MP IC50 values against the proliferation of patients PBMCs was 7...

As an extension of combinatorial molecular layer epitaxy via ablation of perovskite oxides by a pulsed excimer laser, we have developed a laser molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) system for parallel integration of nano-scaled thin films of organic-inorganic hybrid materials. A pulsed infrared (IR) semiconductor laser was adopted for thermal evaporation of organic halide (A-site: CH3NH3I) and inorganic halide (B-site: PbI2) powder targets to deposit repeated A/B bilayer films where the thickness of each layer was controlled on molecular layer scale by programming the evaporation IR laser pulse number, length, or power...

We investigated the global landscape of Ca(2+) homeostasis in the budding yeast based on high-dimensional chemical-genetic interaction profiles. The morphological responses of 62 Ca(2+)-sensitive (cls) mutants were quantitatively analyzed with the image processing program CalMorph following exposure to a high concentration of Ca(2+) After a generalized linear model was applied, an analysis of covariance model was used to detect significant Ca(2+)-cls interactions. We found that high-dimensional, morphological Ca(2+)-cls interactions were mixed with positive (86%) and negative (14%) chemical-genetic interactions, while one-dimensional fitness Ca(2+)-cls interactions were all negative in principle...

Two-thiouridine (s(2)U) at position 54 of transfer RNA (tRNA) is a posttranscriptional modification that enables thermophilic bacteria to survive in high-temperature environments. s(2)U is produced by the combined action of two proteins, 2-thiouridine synthetase TtuA and 2-thiouridine synthesis sulfur carrier protein TtuB, which act as a sulfur (S) transfer enzyme and a ubiquitin-like S donor, respectively. Despite the accumulation of biochemical data in vivo, the enzymatic activity by TtuA/TtuB has rarely been observed in vitro, which has hindered examination of the molecular mechanism of S transfer...

We demonstrate a new method of cleaning superlattice (SL) photocathodes using atomic hydrogen that allows an increased number of repeat activations. GaAs/GaAsP SL photocathodes were activated with either conventional heat cleaning or atomic hydrogen cleaning. Repeated heat cleaning was found to gradually lower the quantum efficiency (QE) of the photocathodes, while a relatively constant QE was maintained over repeated atomic hydrogen cleaning. These results show that atomic hydrogen cleaning allows a greater number of photocathode cleanings without a loss of performance...

A salicylaldehyde derivative bearing four pyridine arms, 3,5-bis(N,N-bis(2-pyridylmethyl)aminomethyl)-2,4-dihydroxybenzaldehyde (Hbpsal) as a "socket", was prepared and used to derive a series of zinc complexes with various extra anions "plugged" into their vacant site. The crystal structure and (1) H NMR spectra were noticeably influenced by the extra anions, allowing fine-tuning of the properties by "plug-and-socket"-type modification. Similar to unsubstituted salicylaldehyde, the zinc complexes reacted with primary amines to afford Schiff-base compounds...

INTRODUCTION: Gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) with ulceration may potentially disseminate into the peritoneal cavity after laparoscopic local wedge resection (full-thickness resection) when the intestinal wall is opened under the aeroperitoneum. To prevent this intraoperative tumor seeding, we developed laparoscopy-assisted full-thickness resection (LAFTR) of the duodenum for GIST with ulceration. Here, we present the preliminary results of LAFTR. METHODS: Three patients with duodenal GIST with ulceration underwent LAFTR...

The source and routes of diarrheagenic Escherichia coli (DEC) remain poorly clarified. To investigate the involvement of domestic animals in the dissemination of DEC, the prevalence of DEC among foods and fecal specimens of cattle, pigs, chickens, healthy carriers, and patients in Osaka and Hyogo, Japan, was investigated using a multiplex real-time PCR assay. The most prevalent virulence genes were astA and eae, with prevalences of 46.8% and 27.4%, respectively. stx1 (26.6%) and stx2 (45.9%) were prevalent in cattle feces, and est (8...
