Activated T helper (Th)-1 CD4+ cells and their mediators are essential for pathogenesis processes in aplastic anaemia (AA). Recently, T-cell immunoglobulin and mucin domain 3 (Tim-3) molecules, a Th1-specific type 1 membrane protein, have been suggested to be important regulators of both Th1 proliferation and the development of tolerance. Moreover, T-box(More)
Metadherin (MTDH) is involved in aberrant proliferation, migration, and chemoresistance of tumor cells. It has been demonstrated that it can promote tumor growth by modulation multiple oncogenic signaling pathways. However, MTDH expression, significance, and related mechanism in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) are still unclear. The objective of this(More)
To evaluate the balance between T-cell immunoglobulin and mucin domain (Tim) molecules(Tim)-1 and Tim-3 in patients with aplastic anemia (AA), plasma IFN-γ and IL-4 levels were measured in patients with active AA (n = 41), AA in remission (n = 29) and in healthy subjects (n = 40) by enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Using real-time quantitative(More)
This study was aimed to establish the approach of quantitative PCR (q-PCR) for diagnosis of invasive fungal infections (IFI) in patients with hematologic malignancies. Specimens from 40 patients with hematologic malignancies were chosen for q-PCR and galactomannan (GM) test. The 28S rRNA, a real high consensus sequence of fungi, was selected as target gene(More)
PURPOSE Interleukin-33 (IL-33) is an IL-1 family cytokine which signals via its ST2 receptor and is involved in several autoimmune diseases by regulating T cell immune responses. This study aims to measure the expression of soluble ST2 (sST2) and IL-33 in active immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) and during remission. METHODS Thirty-two ITP patients with(More)
BACKGROUND The T-cell immunoglobulin and mucin domain-(Tim)-1 molecule and Tim-3 are mainly expressed on activated T helper (Th) 2 and Th1 cells, respectively, and have been implicated in the pathogenesis of some autoimmune diseases. Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is a common autoimmune disorder, and the complex dysregulation of cellular immunity has been(More)
Fludarabine is an effective purine analogue which has become extensive used in lymph proliferative malignancies. However, an increased incidence of autoimmune disorders including autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AHIA) and idiopathic thrombocytopenia (ITP) is reported with the use of fludarabine. The exact mechanism for fludarabine to exacerbate thrombocytopenia(More)
Nasal-type natural killer/T-cell lymphoma (nasal NKTCL) is an aggressive hematological neoplasm with poor prognosis, and its incidence is higher in Asia than in Western countries. Increasing evidence suggests that aberrant activation of signal transducers and activators of transcription 3 (STAT3) is related to numerous malignancies. However, the involvement(More)
