HLA matching between the donor and recipient improves the success of unrelated hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Because many patients in need of an unrelated transplant have only donors with mismatch, information is needed to evaluate the limits of HLA mismatching. We examined the association of survival, acute graft-versus-host disease(More)
The association of certain HLA-D alleles with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) is well known. One hundred and sixty-one non-related diabetic individuals and 142 non-related healthy controls were typed for the HLA DR-DQw-Dw association, using a restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) typing method that combines three probe/enzyme systems:(More)
Given their antileukemic activity, natural killer (NK) cells can alter the outcome of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). The physiologic functions of NK cells are regulated by the interaction of killer immunoglobulin-like receptors (KIR) with specific HLA class I ligands. In the literature, different models based on HLA class I and/or KIR donor(More)
The aim of this collaborative study was to evaluate the impact of killer cell immunoglobulin-like receptor (KIR) gene disparities on unrelated hematopoietic stem cell transplantations (HSCT) outcome. To address this question, we have determined the presence or absence of 14 functional KIR genes in HLA-matched (n= 164) or HLA-mismatched (n= 100)(More)
Allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT) was performed in 17 patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL): 15 resistant and 2 untreated forms; 12 males and 5 females with a mean age of 40 years (32-49). The conditioning regimen and graft versus host disease (GVHD) prophylaxis were varied. Successful engraftment was obtained in 15 evaluable cases.(More)
We have previously reported that specific anti-tumour cytotoxic T cells (CTL) can be differentiated from tumour-infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL) in non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. We found that the combination of interleukin (IL)-1, IL-2 and IL-12 was very efficient for expansion of CD8+ T-cell receptor (TCR)alphabeta+ T cells and for development of their ability to(More)
This article describes the study of the functional relationship between auto-tumor-reactive CD4(+) T cell clones (TCC) and autologous malignant B cells. Four auto-tumor-reactive CD4(+) TCC were derived from tumor-infiltrating T lymphocytes (TIL-T) from a freshly isolated human follicular lymphoma by the following technique: total CD4(+) TIL-T were(More)
