A human megakaryocyte cell line (B1647) has been established from bone marrow cells obtained from a patient with acute myelogenous leukaemia (FAB M2). The cells were CD34-, CD33+, HLA-DR+, CD38+, and expressed the immunophenotypic markers of the megakaryocyte lineage (CD41 and von Willebrand factor). Moreover the cells expressed the c-mpl (thrombopoietin(More)
In the erythroleukemia cell line TF-1, recombinant human erythropoietin (rHEpo), but not c-kit ligand, enhanced the number of cells expressing the erythropoietin receptor (EpoR), as measured by flow-cytometric analysis of binding of the biotin-labeled Epo. Moreover, 125I-Epo binding and Scatchard analyses, indicated that TF-1 cells, maintained in standard(More)
BACKGROUND The inverted-T skin-reducing mastectomy with implant reconstruction represents a very effective reconstructive and cosmetic option in patients with macromastia. However, in this subset of patients, the risk of skin flap necrosis, especially at the T-junction, is significant. In this setting, complete implant coverage with viable tissue beneath(More)
