The in situ function of tumour-infiltrating leukocytes (TIL) in human colorectal adenocarcinoma (CRC) is unclear. Local cytokine expression probably regulates the anti-tumour immune response and tumour immune surveillance. We examined the distribution of mRNA for IFN-gamma, TNF-alpha, IL-10 and IL-4 in TIL, and tumour cells freshly isolated from 21(More)
In this study, 133 patients with MS were investigated for HLA-A,B,C,DR antigens, natural killer (NK) cell activity, and antibody-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC). A higher frequency of HLA B7 and DR2 was found in this group of patients than in the healthy control group, as can be observed in other caucasoid populations as well. In Gypsies living in the same(More)
Anti-H-2 and anti-Ia alloimmune mouse antisera were tested by the microcytotoxicity test on human peripheral blood B- and T-cell preparations. Anti-H-2 antisera react by a higher titer and/or cytotoxicity scoring grade on B cels than on T cells. Anti-Ia antisera react practically only with B cells. It was assumed that anti-H-2 antisera contain two(More)
A non-myeloablative conditioning protocol containing dibromomannitol (DBM/cytosine arabinoside/cyclophosphamide) has been applied to 36 chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients followed by bone marrow transplantation (BMT) from sibling donors. Risk factors include: accelerated phase (10 patients), older age (17 patients over >40 years) and long interval(More)
Subjection of human peripheral blood lymphocytes to a temp shift from 4 to 37 degrees C resulted in a shedding of Fc receptors (termed FcRI) from 40-50% of FcR-positive cells followed by their re-expression within 4 hr; a phenomenon which had no effect on the cells' antibody-dependent killing capacity. Removal of lymphocytes having an immobile form of the(More)
The peripheral blood mononuclear cells of patients with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia were characterized by the presence of a variety of cell surface differentiation antigens. The cells of 20 patients were found to be of B-cell phenotype when studied with antibodies directed against CD19, CD20, HLA-DR and sIg. Furthermore, a significant percentage of the(More)
It has previously been reported that the use of mitobronitol (dibromomannitol, DBM) instead of busulphan (BU) for myelosuppression is associated with significantly decreased risk for several complications of allogeneic bone marrow transplantation in accelerated chronic granulocytic leukemia. In exploring the pharmacologic basis for this observation, we have(More)
