CD40 binding produces multifaceted growth signals in normal and malignant B cells, whereas its physiological role is less well characterized in epithelial cancers. We examined the growth outcome of CD40 ligation in human breast cancer cells, using CD40+ (T47D and BT-20) and CD40-negative (MCF-7, ZR-75-1) cell lines as defined by flow cytometric analysis,(More)
This study examined the lymphokine-activated killer (LAK) cell cytotoxicity on monoclonal antibody (MoAb)-bound tumor cells from the human small cell lung carcinoma cell lines H69 and H128. LAK cells were generated from normal peripheral blood mononuclear cells by incubation with interleukin 2 for 3 or more days. Cells from the LAK culture were cytotoxic to(More)
Asthma remains the second most common cause for admissions to a paediatric hospital bed. The aim of this study was to describe the characteristics of children admitted to hospital with an acute asthma attack and to identify factors that may prevent future hospital admissions. Parents of all children aged 3 to 15 years admitted to hospital for acute asthma(More)
To characterize skin-infiltrating T lymphocytes during acute GVHD, skin biopsies were obtained from two patients who received unrelated marrow matched for HLA-A, -B, -DR, and -DQ but mismatched for -DP. A total of 120 T-cell clones were generated. Phenotype analysis of the clones showed that the majority of cells were CD4+ and expressed alpha/beta TCR.(More)
Twelve pigs at about 35 days of age were fed a control diet or test diets containing either 10% or 20% canola oil (CO) for 100 days. Four different muscles were excised from each carcass at 24 h post-mortem for analyses. Inclusion of 10% and 20% CO in the animal diet increased (P < 0·05) the relative amount (weight per cent) of unsaturated fatty acids in(More)
of early diagnosis of chronic myeloid leukemia Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) probably originates from a single hematopoietic cell that acquires a proliferative advantage over the normal ones and is characterized by the bcr/abl fusion gene.1 Normal c-abl function is critical for entry of human CD34+ hematopoietic cells into the S phase and for their(More)
BACKGROUND The infiltrating cells in psoriasis include a subpopulation of autoreactive T cells. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to further characterize skin-infiltrating T lymphocytes in patients with psoriasis. METHODS Forty-five T-cell clones were generated from skin biopsy specimens from two patients. RESULTS Phenotypic studies on 25 of 45(More)
The purpose of this study is to determine immune recovery and function after treatment with docetaxel or paclitaxel. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells were harvested before chemotherapy and at weekly times afterwards for cycle 1. Leukocyte subsets ICD45hiCD14lo polymorphonuclear neutrophils, CD45hiCD14hi monocytes, CD45hiCD14- lymphocytes, CD3+CD4/CD8+ T(More)
We and others previously demonstrated that human multiple myeloma (MM) cells express CD40 and have an active CD40-growth regulatory pathway. This study characterizes the growth outcome of soluble (gp39) or membrane-bound recombinant human CD40-ligand (rCD40L) and its relationship with Fas-dependent apoptosis. Contrary to the moderate growth-stimulatory(More)
