Authors: Hayashi D, Shirai T, Terauchi R, Tsuchida S, Mizoshiri N, Mori Y, Arai Y, Mazda O, Kubo T Abstract Fibrosarcoma is a soft tissue sarcoma that is classified as a rare cancer. Therefore, no standard anti-tumor drug therapy has been established for fibrosarcoma. Although pristimerin (PM) has been reported to exert an anti-tumor effect on various types of cancer, no studies have examined the therapeutic effect of PM on soft tissue sarcoma. The purpose of the current study was to investigate the anti-tumor effect of PM on human fibrosarcoma cells (HT1080). The present study examined the cell viability, IC50 val...

This study aimed to evaluate the growth and differentiation potential of DPCs cultured inside demineralized dentin tubules in vivo. Six green fluorescent protein (GFP)-transgenic rats (body weight 100 g each) and thirty-two Sprague-Dawley (SD) male rats (body weight 250 g each) were used for DPC collection and dentin tubules preparation and transplantation, respectively. Third-passage DPCs with or without collagen gels were loaded into demineralized dentin tubules. Both types of grafts were transplanted into the rectus abdominis muscles of SD rats and were harvested after 21 days. The expression of alkaline phosphatase (AL...

During a study period of 19 years (2000–2018), 366 patients with culture-proven adult bacterial meningitis (ABM) were identified in the author’s hospital (264 patients in 2000–2010 and 102 patients in 2011–2018). Of the 366 ABM patients...

Conclusions: Symptomatic hyponatremia secondary to SIADH remains a rare complication of cryptococcal meningitis.,Case Presentation: A 67-year-old male with liver transplantation due to hepatitis C (HCV) related liver cirrhosis developed severe hyponatremia four months after liver transplantation, which was discovered during routine clinic visit. Patient was referred to the emergency department, treated and discharged with normal serum sodium level. Few days later, he presented with dizziness, confusion, ataxia, abnormal muscle movements and leg pain. Laboratory investigations were consistent with SIADH and revealed a sodiu...
