The Efficacy of Wide Resection for Musculoskeletal Metastatic Lesions of Renal Cell Carcinoma.

This study evaluated the outcome of wide resection for metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) to the bone or soft tissue.

Risk factors for postoperative deep infection in bone tumors.

Postoperative deep infection after bone tumor surgery remains a serious complication. Although there are numerous reports about risk factors for postoperative deep infection in general surgery, there is only a small number of reports about those for bone tumor surgery. This retrospective study aimed to identify risk factors for postoperative deep infection after bone tumor resection.

Knee joint preservation surgery in osteosarcoma using tumour-bearing bone treated with liquid nitrogen.

To preserve the joint structure in order to maintain good limb function in patients with osteosarcoma, we perform epiphyseal or metaphyseal osteotomy and reconstruction using frozen autografts that contain a tumour treated with liquid nitrogen. There are two methods of using liquid nitrogen-treated autografts: the free-freezing method and the pedicle-freezing method. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the results of intentional joint-preserving reconstruction using the free-freezing method and the pedicle-freezing method in patients with osteosarcoma.

An unusual case of proximal humeral simple bone cyst in an adult from secondary cystic change.

Simple bone cysts (SBC) have been documented to occur in adults with closed physeal plates, most commonly affecting the calcaneus in this patient subset. Although most authors theorize an association to trauma, etiology of simple bone cysts remains an enigma up to now.

Intercalary frozen autograft for reconstruction of malignant bone and soft tissue tumours.

In 1999, we developed a technique using frozen autografts-tumour-containing bone treated with liquid nitrogen-for the reconstruction of malignant bone tumours. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the functional and oncological outcomes of frozen autografts for intercalary reconstruction of malignant bones and soft tissue tumours.

Pathogenesis of Osteosclerotic Change Following Treatment with an Antibody Against RANKL for Giant Cell Tumour of the Bone.

Giant cell tumours (GCTs) of the bone are intermediate tumours that are locally aggressive. Denosumab, an antibody against receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa-B ligand (RANKL), was recently developed; however, it induces osteosclerotic change through an unknown mechanism. We determined whether osteosclerotic change could be induced by neoplastic stromal cells of giant cell tumours (GCTs).

Do Mesenchymal Stem Cells Derived From Atypical Lipomatous Tumors Have Greater Differentiation Potency Than Cells From Normal Adipose Tissues?

The p53 protein in mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) regulates differentiation to osteogenic or adipogenic lineage. Because p53 function is depressed in most malignancies, if MSCs in malignancy also have p53 hypofunction, differentiation therapy to osteogenic or adipogenic lineage may be an effective treatment. We therefore wished to begin to explore this idea by evaluating atypical lipomatous tumor/well-differentiated liposarcoma (ALT/WDL) cells, because murine double minute 2 (MDM2) gene amplification, which leads to p53 hypofunction, is found in almost all ALT/WDLs.

Functional and radiological outcomes of a minimally invasive surgical approach to monostotic fibrous dysplasia.

Reports showing high recurrence rates for intralesional curettage and bone grafting have made the current treatment principle for fibrous dysplasia controversial. This study aimed to report the postoperative clinical outcomes from three minimally invasive surgical strategies we use for monostotic fibrous dysplasia (MFD).

Surgical management of proximal fibular tumors: A report of 12 cases.

Aggressive benign or malignant tumors in the proximal fibula may require en bloc resection of the fibular head, including the peroneal nerve and lateral collateral ligament. Here, we report the treatment outcomes of 12 patients with aggressive benign or malignant proximal fibula tumors.

Balancing Prolonged Survival with QoL Using Low-dose Pazopanib Maintenance: A Comparison with the PALETTE Study.

A consensus has not been reached regarding the optimal pazopanib dosing schedule, which we determined in patients who received pazopanib at our Institution.

The purity measure for genomic regions leads to horizontally transferred genes.

Sequence analysis is important to understand a genome, and a number of approaches such as sequence alignments and hidden Markov models have been employed. In the field of text mining, the purity measure is developed to detect unusual regions of a string without any domain knowledge. It is reported in that work that only RNAs and transposons are shown to have high purity values. In this work, the purity values of regions of various bacterial genome sequences are computed, and those regions are analyzed extensively. It is found that mobile elements and phages as well as RNAs and transposons have high purity values. It is interesting that they are all classified into a group of horizontally transferred genes. This means that the purity measure is useful to predict horizontally transferred genes.
