Authors: Li J, Yang Y, Wan D, Peng Y, Zhang J Abstract Asthma is one of the most prevalent chronic inflammatory diseases of lung. Current asthma therapy using inhaled corticosteroid often results in undesired treatment outcome due to poor compliance and drugs' lack of tissue specificity. N,N,N'-trimethyl-N'-(2-hydroxyl-3-methyl-5-123Iiodobenzyl)-1,3-propanediamine (HIPD), a phenolic propanediamine derivative, has been used as an imaging agent for localized pulmonary diseases. Inspired by this, N,N,N'-trimethyl-N'-(4-hydroxyl-benzyl)-1,3-propanediamine (TPD), a new HIPD analog, was proposed as a lung-targeting ligan...

Chest X-ray showed diffuse nodular and enhanced vascular shadows with Kerley lines in both lungs. A blood analysis showed elevated serum CEA and CA19-9 levels. A transbronchial biopsy revealed well to moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma, the origin of which was immunohistochemically suspected to be the gastroin...

Authors: Hirata Y, Fukae J, Nishida A, Fujioka S, Hamasaki M, Nonokuma M, Tsuboi Y Abstract A 61-year-old man was admitted to our hospital because of decreased visual acuity. On admission, he had marked blepharoedema, conjunctival injection, exophthalmos, diplopia, and blurred vision. He also had bronchial asthma and urinary retention requiring urethral catheterization. His serum immunoglobulin (Ig) G4 level was elevated to 1,830 U/mL. Fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography revealed an abnormal uptake in multiple organs. A histopathological examination of the salivary gland revealed IgG4-positive plasma ce...
