    ABSTRACT: Either palliative distal gastrectomy or gastrojejunostomy are the initial treatment options for locally advanced gastric cancer with outlet obstruction when curative-intent resection is not feasible. Since chemotherapy is the mainstay for unresectable gastric cancer, the clinical value of palliative distal gastrectomy is controversial. We retrospectively reviewed the clinical data of patients with gastric cancer with outlet obstruction treated at our institution between January 2002 and December 2012. We compared the clinical outcomes of palliative distal gastrectomy with those of gastrojejunostomy patients and the factors affecting overall survival were evaluated. Elective palliative distal gastrectomy and gastrojejunostomy were performed in 18 and 25 patients, respectively. The median overall survival times in the gastrojejunostomy and palliative distal gastrectomy groups were statistically equivalent at 8.8 and 8.3 months, respectively (P = 0.73), despite the more locally advanced tumors in the gastrojejunostomy as compared with the palliative distal gastrectomy group. A multivariate Cox regression analysis showed absence of postoperative chemotherapy and higher postoperative complication grade to be associated with worse clinical outcomes. Palliative distal gastrectomy offers neither survival nor palliative benefit as compared to gastrojejunostomy. Minimizing the morbidity of intervention for outlet obstruction, followed by chemotherapy, appears to be the optimal initial strategy for incurable gastric cancer with outlet obstruction.

    ABSTRACT: Esophageal complications occur after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). There are, however, only limited reports on the etiology or management of esophageal complications. Here, we report the occurrence of intramucosal hematoma presenting continuous esophageal hemorrhage in a 34 year-old man following the second peripheral blood stem cell transplantation for acute myeloid leukemia. His hematemesis started 2 months after HSCT and was repeated in supportive care. On day 156, he underwent total esophagectomy as a result of uncontrollable massive hematemesis. Histopathological testings of the resected esophagus confirmed intramucosal hematoma as a cause of hematemesis. This case highlights intramucosal hematoma as one of the important etiologies of esophageal complications following HSCT.

    ABSTRACT: Accidental whole-body overexposure of radiation occurs very rarely. Radiation exposure causes DNA breaks in the cells and shows various clinical features, which are time dependent, dose dependent and tissue dependent. Neutron rays are more destructive than gamma rays but their actual effect on humans have been under-reported. We observed the time-dependent and the dose-dependent dermatological changes in a patient who was severely irradiated by neutron and gamma rays, with the aim of clarifying the clinicopathological features of severely irradiated skin. The detection of DNA breaks in keratinocytes was performed by the terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase-mediated deoxyuridine triphosphate nick end labelling technique. The degenerative changes of the skin and the re-epithelialization varied in a time dependent and dose dependent manner. DNA breaks were significantly higher in irradiated keratinocytes. Neutron rays caused depth-dependent degeneration of the skin. Evaluation of DNA breaks in the skin cells might be a clue to estimate local dosimetry.

    ABSTRACT: Cysteine uptake is the rate-limiting process in glutathione synthesis. Previously we have shown that the inhibitors of excitatory amino acid transporters (EAATs) significantly enhance glutamate toxicity via depletion of intracellular glutathione. In this study we show evidence that the neuronal glutamate transporter EAAT3 is directly enrolled in cysteine uptake in cultured neurons. Neuronal cysteine uptake was dependent on the extracellular sodium, and was suppressed by EAAT inhibitors. Cysteine uptake was suppressed by extracellular glutamate and aspartate, substrates of EAATs, and not by substrates of cysteine transporters. Intracellular glutathione levels were reduced by EAAT inhibitors, and not by inhibitors of cysteine transporters. Knock down of EAAT3 expression using antisense oligonucleotide significantly reduced cysteine uptake, intracellular glutathione level, and neuronal viability against oxidative stress. These facts indicate that EAAT3 functions as a cysteine transporter, and this function seems to be unique and distinct from cysteine transporters that have been reported.

    ABSTRACT: Accidental exposure to acute high-dose total body neutron radiation is rare. We report a 35-year-old man exposed to a total body dose of 5.4 Gy neutron- and 8.5-13 Gy gamma-radiation in a radiation criticality accident. He received a blood stem cell transplant from his HLA-identical sister. There was bone marrow recovery with complete donor chimerism. Random chromatid breaks were observed in donor cells suggesting a bystander effect of neutron exposure. The subject died 82 days after the accident (75 days post transplant) from multi-organ failure.

    ABSTRACT: We studied the change in gap junctional intercellular communication (GJIC) on human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) under hypoxia-reoxygenation (H-R) conditions by the fluorescence redistribution after photobleaching (FRAP) method. Confluent HUVEC monolayers were exposed to hypoxia (pO2<0.1%) for 12 hours, and then were returned to normal atmospheric conditions for reoxygenation. Contrast microscopic observation showed no significant changes in the morphology of the HUVEC at any times after H-R. Reoxygenation following hypoxia caused time-dependent decrease in GJIC, that is, GJIC reduction was induced after 2 hours and reached maximum at 4-6 hours which recovered to normal levels after 18 hours. Oxidant sensitive fluorescence dye assay revealed that the generation of intracellular free radicals increased during the first 2 hours after reoxygenation. Hydroxyl radical scavengers (MCI-186, DMSO) and an iron chelator (deferoxamine) abolished the reduction of GJIC due to H-R. However, SOD, catalase and probucol were essentially inactive on this reduction. These data suggest that ischemia-reperfusion injury may be caused by a functional defect of GJIC induced by reactive oxygen radicals.

    ABSTRACT: To examine (1) the effects of trauma on changes in neutrophil L-selectin and CD11b expression and on the levels of soluble L-selectin and (2) whether these alterations are different on leukocyte subpopulations in those patients who develop multiple organ dysfunction syndrome. Twenty patients with Injury Severity Score (ISS) > or = 16 and 15 patients with ISS score < 16 were studied. Arterial blood were collected serially after injury. The staining of leukocyte surface adhesion molecules was performed with antibodies against L-selectin and CD11b. Positive cell count and mean fluorescence intensity were determined by flow cytometry. Soluble L-selectin was measured using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. In patients with ISS > or = 16, neutrophil L-selectin expression showed an immediate increase, reaching peak levels between 3 to 4 hours after injury (p < 0.05 vs. patients with ISS < 16), followed by a gradual decrease. Plasma levels of soluble L-selectin reached peak levels at 6 hours after injury. However, in patients with ISS < 16, minimal changes in L-selectin expression and soluble L-selectin were observed. Neutrophil CD11b expression showed an immediate increase for the first 3 hours followed by a gradual increase up to 24 hours after injury. In patients who developed multiple organ dysfunction syndrome, CD11b both on neutrophils and lymphocytes remained elevated for 120 hours. These findings suggest that acute neutrophil activation is an early event after trauma and may be implicated as "a vulnerable window" for leukocyte-mediated end organ injury.
