Heat shock proteins (HSP) are the most conserved molecules known to date that may also function as immune targets during infection. Hence, theoretically there is a high chance of cross-reactive responses to epitopes shared by host and microbe HSP. If not properly regulated, these responses may contribute to the pathogenesis of autoimmune disease. To(More)
MYCN is an oncogene frequently overexpressed in pediatric solid tumors whereas few evidences suggest his involvement in the pathogenesis of haematologic malignancies. Here we show that MYCN is overexpressed in a relevant proportion (40 to 50%) of adult and pediatric T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemias (T-ALL). Focusing on pediatric T-ALL, MYCN-expressing(More)
BACKGROUND Histiocytoses represent a large, puzzling group of diseases which may involve the skin and other organs. At present, juvenile xanthogranuloma is the disorder most often confused with Langerhans cell histiocytosis. A complex overlap exists between juvenile xanthogranuloma and Langerhans cell histiocytosis, with lesions showing clinical and/or(More)
