PURPOSE Recent studies have suggested that Th17 cells may play a role in the pathogenesis of acute myeloid leukemia (AML). This subset of CD4+ cells is characterized by interleukin (IL)-17A and IL-17F production, which share strong homology, and surface expression of the IL-23 receptor (IL-23R). The present study aimed to determine the association between(More)
Among the complex network of inflammatory cells involved in the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA), Th17 cells have recently been identified as key cells in the promotion of autoimmune processes, and joint destruction. The IL-23/Th17 signalling pathway, consisting of IL-23/IL-23R, IL-17A and IL-17F encoding genes, represents a candidate way for RA(More)
MicroRNA-146a (miR-146a) has been shown to play an important role in the regulation of inflammatory innate immune responses, and found to be differentially expressed in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Through NF-κB pathway, this molecule is able to stimulate the release of pro-inflammatory cytokines such as TNF-α, IL-1β, and IL-17. It has been also suggested(More)
Natural killer (NK) cell licensing status depends on clonal expression of inhibitory killer cell immunoglobulin-like receptors (iKIR) and short term HLA environment. Licensed NK cells are more efficient in tumor killing than unlicensed NK cells. Cognate KIR–HLA pairs in hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) donor and recipient are decisive for the(More)
