Mature (peripheral) T-cell lymphoma (PTCL) other than anaplastic large cell lymphoma is a heterogeneous group of diseases and exceedingly rare in children and adolescents. Survival rates range between 46% and 85%. This study reports the disease characteristics, treatment and outcome of all patients with the diagnosis of mature TCL registered in the(More)
We present an infant with cDGS overlapping with CHARGE syndrome, who suffered from T-cell deficiency treated with screened healthy DLI from an unrelated donor (8/10 match). The first dose of DLI (1.1 x 10(6) CD3+/kg) was administered at the age of six months, the second one (0.9 x 10(6) CD3+/kg) 36 days later. No conditioning was employed, GvHD prophylaxis(More)
Seventeen patients transplanted with hematopoietic cells to correct severe T lymphocyte immunodeficiency resulting from complete DiGeorge anomaly were identified worldwide, and retrospective data were obtained using a questionnaire-based survey. Patients were treated at a median age of 5 months (range, 2-53 months) between 1995 and 2006. Bone marrow was(More)
The aim of this study was to find an objective computational approach for phenotype analysis of common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) patients that describes all differences in the six-color space and to form groups of patients using computational methods. CVID is a heterogeneous primary immunodeficiency disorder where molecular defect is recognized in(More)
Toll-like receptors (TLR) are key components of innate immune system. As TLR activation could induce potentially harmful inflammatory response, activation of TLR signaling pathways has to be under tight control. Besides other control mechanisms, an inhibitory function of murine TLR4 splice variants was recently demonstrated. In this study we investigated(More)
BACKGROUND diGeorge syndrome is a relatively common congenital disorder with developmental defects, including hypoplasia or pathologic migration of the thymus, associated with deletion of contiguous genes on chromosome 22. We prospectively followed a cohort of children with confirmed 22q11.2 deletion. MATERIAL/METHODS One to six repeated examination were(More)
Increased proportions of naive B cell subset and B cells defined as CD27(neg)CD21(neg)CD38(neg) are frequently found in patients with common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) syndrome. Current methods of polychromatic flow cytometry and PCR-based detection of κ deletion excision circles allow for fine definitions and replication history mapping of infrequent(More)
In children with primary immunodeficiencies, the onset of symptoms precedes the diagnosis and the initiation of appropriate treatment by months or years. This delay in diagnosis is due to the fact that while these disorders are rare, some of the infections seen in immunodeficient patients are common. Defective antibody production represents the largest(More)
Accumulation of CD3(+) T-cell receptor (TCR)αβ(+)CD4(-)CD8(-) double-negative T cells (DNT) is a hallmark of autoimmune lymphoproliferative syndrome (ALPS). DNT origin and differentiation pathways remain controversial. Here we show that human ALPS DNT have features of terminally differentiated effector memory T cells reexpressing CD45RA(+) (TEMRA), but are(More)
Bruton’s agammaglobulinemia is a rare X-linked humoral immunodeficiency manifesting with recurrent bacterial infections early in life. Klinefelter’s syndrome caused by an additional X chromosome is the most common sex chromosome disorder. A previously unreported association of these two conditions is described here.
