Waldenström's macroglobulinemia (WM) is a clonal B-cell lymphoproliferative disorder (LPD) of post-germinal center nature. Despite the fact that the precise molecular pathway(s) leading to WM remain(s) to be elucidated, a hallmark of the disease is the absence of the immunoglobulin heavy chain class switch recombination. Using two-dimensional gel(More)
Recipient-specific regulatory T cells (rsTreg) can prevent graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) by inhibiting donor T-cell expansion after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) in mice. Importantly, in adult humans, because of thymus involution, immune reconstitution during the first months after HSCT relies on the peripheral expansion of donor T cells(More)
By revisiting CD90, a GPI-anchored glycoprotein, we show that CD90 is expressed by a subset of CD4(+) and CD8(+) human T cells. CD4(+)CD90(+) cells share similarities with Th17 cells because they express the Th17-specific transcription factor RORC2 and produce IL-17A. CD4(+)CD90(+) cells are activated memory T cells that express the gut mucosal markers(More)
In order to investigate the mechanism of polycythemia in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), serum and urinary levels of erythropoietin and medullary erythroid progenitors were studied in 21 patients; nine were nonpolycythemic (hematocrit, 39 +/- 4 percent; red blood cell [RBC] mass, 28 +/- 5 ml/kg; forced expiratory volume in one second [FEV1],(More)
T101-ricin A-chain immunotoxin is a hybrid molecule made up of the T101 monoclonal antibody bound to the A-chain of ricin. It specifically destroys cells expressing the cell surface T65 antigen. We have designed a preclinical study to evaluate its possible use for the in vitro treatment of T-cell hematological cancers prior to autologous bone marrow(More)
