Local and systemic inflammation has been implicated in the pathogenesis of acute pancreatitis and secondary multisystem organ failure. To assess the pro- and antiinflammatory response, the site of mediator production, and their route of diffusion, we sampled simultaneously ascites, thoracic lymph, and blood at the onset of end-organ dysfunction and for the(More)
Hamster to rat cardiac xenografts undergo delayed rejection as compared with the hyperacute rejection of discordant xenografts. Elicited xenoreactive Abs (EXA) are thought to initiate hamster to rat cardiac xenograft rejection. In this study, we demonstrate that following transplantation of a hamster heart, rats generated high levels of EXA. Adoptive(More)
AIM To determine predisposing factors of idiopathic allograft fibrosis among pediatric liver transplant recipients. BACKGROUND Protocol biopsies (PB) from stable liver transplant (LT) recipient children frequently exhibit idiopathic fibrosis. The relation between allograft inflammation, humoral immune response and fibrosis is uncertain. Also the role of(More)
BACKGROUND The true relevance of allosensitization in patients benefiting from left ventricular assist device (LVAD) as bridge to transplant (BTT) is still debated. Available registry data referred to numerous devices precluding LVAD-specific analysis. Therefore, we studied all patients with Novacor LVAD prior to transplantation. METHODS From 1985 to(More)
BACKGROUND Neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has proven its prognostic value in cardiovascular diseases, infections, inflammatory diseases and in several types of cancers. However, no cut-off has been proposed on the basis of reference values coming from healthy population. METHODS Routine blood samples were obtained (n = 413) from workers (age: median(More)
BACKGROUND Flow cytometry of lineage markers is useful in the classification of leukemias. Our aim was to assess whether the study of lineage genes at the RNA level would enable differentiation of acute myeloid leukemias (AMLs) from B-and T-lineage acute lymphoid leukemias (ALLs). METHODS We measured mRNA of four lineage markers [CD19, CD79a, CD3e, and(More)
In order to mediate their effects, cyclosporin A and FK-506 must each bind with high affinity to a cytosolic target protein that belongs to the immunophilin group. FK-506 forms complexes with the FK-506 binding protein FKBP, mainly FKBP-12, and these complexes possess immunosuppressive activity through their ability to interact with another target, the(More)
