The partial oligosaccharide sequences of glycoconjugates and the nature of their glycosidic linkages were investigated in normal human prostate, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and prostatic carcinoma by means of lectin histochemistry, using light microscopy and Western blot analysis. The labeling pattern of BPH differed from that of normal prostate in(More)
The significance of human leukocyte antigen (HLA) compatibility and preformed antibodies in liver transplantation remains unclear. The objectives of this study were to evaluate, in a single-center cohort comprising 896 liver transplants, whether the degree of donor-recipient compatibility and preformed antibodies modified graft survival. Univariate(More)
GOALS/BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to decipher whether end-stage liver failure modifies peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL) in a homogeneous manner, independently of the base pathology, or, if on the contrary, PBL subsets show a different profile in each hepatic disease. METHODS We studied PBL subsets in 71 patients with end-stage liver disease,(More)
Two patients with the X-linked form of the hyper-IgM syndrome have been studied. Both patients present: 1. Mutations in the CD40L gene (a nonsense point mutation that introduces a termination codon at the extracellular domain of the protein, and a deletion that eliminates exon 4 as consequence of an abnormal splicing). 2. Lack of CD40L expression on the(More)
Patients with end-stage liver disease (ESLD) show a low absolute number of peripheral blood lymphocyte subpopulations (PBLSs). We investigated if the baseline PBLS could categorize orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) recipients into groups at high or low risk for infection after transplantation. PBLSs were prospectively studied in 63 consecutive patients(More)
The expression of E-, N- and P-cadherin, α-, β- and γ-catenin, and actin was studied by immunohistochemistry, ELISA, and Western blot analysis in normal prostates, and in the prostates of men with benign prostatic hyperplasia and men with prostatic carcinoma, in order to evaluate their possible role in the pathogenesis of these diseases. Present results(More)
Ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T) is a severe autosomal recessive disorder involving cerebellar degeneration, immunodeficiency, chromosomal instability, radiosensitivity, and cancer predisposition. A-T results from mutations in a single gene (ataxia-telangiectasia mutated, ATM) on chromosome 11 that encodes a 3056 amino acid protein (ATM). The purpose of this(More)
