CD200 is a cell-surface glycoprotein that functions through interaction with the CD200 receptor on myeloid lineage cells to regulate myeloid cell functions. Expression of CD200 has been implicated in multiple types of human cancer; however, the impact of tumor expression of CD200 on tumor immunity remains poorly understood. To evaluate this issue, we(More)
Spinal anesthesia was given to a patient undergoing transurethral resection ofprostate (TURP). A total of 3.2 ml of bupivacaine 0.5% mixed with fentanyl 20 mcg were used. The patient started experiencing sensation after 150 min. Remifentanil intravenous infusion prolonged the duration of anesthesia for an additional 105 minutes.
Negative selection plays a key role in the clonal deletion of autoreactive T cells in the thymus. However, negative selection is incomplete; as high numbers of autoreactive T cells can be detected in normal individuals, mechanisms that regulate negative selection must exist. In this regard, we previously reported that CD24, a GPI-anchored glycoprotein, is(More)
Activation-induced cytidine deaminase (AID) is an enzyme essential for the generation of Ab diversity in B cells and is considered to be a general gene mutator. In addition, AID expression was also implicated in the pathogenesis of human B cell malignancies and associated with poor prognosis. In this study, we report that small interfering RNA silencing of(More)
Despite negative selection in the thymus, significant numbers of autoreactive T cells still escape to the periphery and cause autoimmune diseases when immune regulation goes awry. It is largely unknown how these T cells escape clonal deletion. In this study, we report that CD24 deficiency caused deletion of autoreactive T cells that normally escape negative(More)
