This is a photograph when I went to Washington DC to read a paper on OK-432 therapy at an annual meeting of American Academy of Otolaryngology and Head & Neck Surgery 2000.
My father and my grandfather were also otolaryngologist (ENT
doctor). This is the only reason why I became an otolaryngologist.
I have specially involved in immunology and allergology about otorhinolaryngology. I have used OK-432 in my experiments to stimulate leukocytes during my post graduate course. About OK-432 intracystic injection therapy, we have accumulated experiences slowly. At first, we used OK-432 only to the cases who had recurrence after surgery. After the efficacy and safeness of this therapy was convinced, we have treated all cases who had diseases that we showed indications to this therapy in this home page by OK-432.
