Early- and long-term outcome data of patients with pseudomyxoma peritonei from appendiceal origin treated by a strategy of cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy.
PURPOSE Pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) originating from an appendiceal mucinous neoplasm remains a biologically heterogeneous disease. The purpose of our study was to evaluate outcome and long-termExpand

An MHC II-dependent activation loop between adipose tissue macrophages and CD4+ T cells controls obesity-induced inflammation.
An adaptive immune response triggered by obesity is characterized by the activation of adipose tissue CD4(+) T cells by unclear mechanisms. We have examined whether interactions between adiposeExpand
