To study the association of autoimmunity and human B cell neoplasia, we have established a model of a B cell lymphoma which expresses a pathogenic autoantibody of defined specificity. The Ig VH gene expressed in this neoplasm was analyzed longitudinally using clinical specimens taken from the splenic lymphoma (S) at diagnosis and from lymph node relapses 3(More)
Exposure to genotoxic agents such as insecticides, pesticides, and solvents correlated with abnormal karyotypes and development of acute nonlymphocytic leukemia (ANLL) similar to, but to a lesser degree compared to, patients exposed to irradiation and alkylating drugs in several reports. Because of the natural progression of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS)(More)
Early relapse and minimal residual disease during clinical remission was examined in two patients having acute T-cell leukemia/lymphoma with the t(10;14)(q24;q11) chromosomal translocation. Molecular probes which can detect T-cell receptor alpha/delta clonal rearrangements and a TCL-3 probe which can detect the clonal rearrangement due to the chromosomal(More)
BACKGROUND Complex biomedical research can lead to disquiet in communities with limited exposure to scientific discussions, leading to rumours or to high drop-out rates. We set out to test an intervention designed to address apprehensions commonly encountered in a community where literacy is uncommon, and where complex biomedical research has been conducted(More)
Ten patients with bone-marrow failure from myelofibrosis, aplastic anaemia, paroxysmal nocturnal haemoglobinuria, and "hairy cell" leukaemia, who had failed to respond to androgens and/or glucocorticosteroids, were treated with a combination of aetiocholanolone and prednisolone. All patients except one with aplastic anaemia responded with an increase in(More)
INTRODUCTION Environmental enteropathy (EE) is associated with growth failure, micronutrient malabsorption and impaired responses to oral vaccines. We set out to define cellular mechanisms of impaired barrier function in EE and explore protective mechanisms. METHODS We studied 49 adults with environmental enteropathy in Lusaka, Zambia using confocal laser(More)
