Increased circulating soluble CD40 ligand (sCD40L) is commonly associated with inflammatory disorders. We aimed to investigate whether gene polymorphisms in CD40LG, CD40 and ITGA2 are associated with a propensity to secrete sCD40L; thus, we examined this issue at the level of human platelets, the principal source of sCD40L. We performed single polymorphism(More)
Nephropathic cystinosis (NC) is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by defective transport of cystine across the lysosomal membrane and resulting in renal, ophthalmic, and other organ abnormalities. Mutations in the CTNS gene cause a deficiency of the transport protein, cystinosin. This study was performed to investigate mutations of the CTNS gene(More)
Alloimmunization is an undesirable iatrogenic effect of transfusion and transplantation. In fact, recipients can be considered as responders or not responders, in a continuum from tolerance, including organ transplantation and transfusion, to polyimmunized and refractory patients. New models and large studies have enabled a better understanding of the(More)
