However, to our knowledge, seeding and therefore MMS have not yet been used to a great extent with membrane proteins. Although the nucleation event is equally important with this class of proteins, the complexity of the crystallization systems and the lack of large quantities of stable protein have hindered the systematic implementation of MMS. Another problem is the difficulty of introducing seeds into the lipid cubic phase that is often used to crystallize membrane proteins.

Before Ishinomaki, the Takamotos were in Sendai, another area badly affected by the 2011 disasters. Then, the Takamotos planted churches in western Japan for eight years. The Takamotos also adopted their four children throughout this time.

Permanent seed brachytherapy, also known as low dose-rate (LDR) brachytherapy, is a type of radiotherapy where tiny radioactive seeds are put into your prostate. Each radioactive seed is the size and shape of a grain of rice. The seeds stay in the prostate forever and give a steady dose of radiation over a few months.

You will have the treatment during one or two hospital visits. Many hospitals offer treatment in just one visit, where your treatment will be planned and the seeds put in at the same time under the same anaesthetic. This is sometimes called a one-stage procedure. You may not need to stay in hospital overnight.

If your treatment is spread over two visits, you will have a planning session on your first visit. The radioactive seeds will be put in on the second visit, two to four weeks later. You may hear this called a two-stage procedure. Some men may be offered the two-stage procedure, for example, if they need treatment to reduce the size of the prostate. Some hospitals only offer the two-stage procedure.

During the planning session, you will have an ultrasound scan to find out the size, shape and position of your prostate. This is called a volume study and is done by a clinical oncologist, physicist, radiographer or radiologist. They will use the scan to work out how many radioactive seeds you need.

A thin tube (catheter) may be passed up your penis into your bladder to drain urine, and an ultrasound probe is put inside your back passage. The probe is attached to an ultrasound machine that displays an image of the prostate. Your doctor, radiographer or physicist will use this image to work out how many radioactive seeds you need and where to put them.

The clinical oncologist will put the seeds into your prostate. If you have the treatment on the same day as your planning session, the seeds will be put in straight after the planning scan, under the same anaesthetic.

An ultrasound probe is again put inside your back passage to take images of your prostate and make sure the seeds are put in the right place. In some hospitals, the clinical oncologist might put gel into your urethra (the tube you urinate through). This is instead of a catheter and helps the doctor see your urethra more clearly so they avoid putting any seeds into it.

The clinical oncologist then puts thin needles through your perineum (the area between the testicles and the back passage), and into your prostate. They pass the radioactive seeds through the needles into the prostate. The needles are then taken out, leaving the seeds behind.

Depending on the size of your prostate, between 60 and 120 seeds are put into the prostate using around 15 to 30 needles. The seeds can be loose individual seeds or linked together in a chain using material that slowly dissolves. Each hospital is different and the clinical oncologist will decide what type of seeds you will have. Treatment usually takes 45 to 90 minutes.

Side effects usually start to appear about a week after treatment, when radiation from the seeds starts to have an effect. They are generally at their worst a few weeks or months after treatment, when the swelling is at its worst and the radiation dose is strongest. They are often worse in men with a large prostate, as more seeds and needles are used during their treatment. Side effects should improve over the following months as the seeds lose their radiation and the swelling goes down.
