Reactivation of chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection in patients undergoing chemotherapy is well-documented, but reactivation during imatinib mesylate treatment has not been reported. This study reports a 54-year-old man, without prior liver dysfunction but with chronic HBV infection, in whom fatal HBV reactivation occurred during treatment of chronic(More)
Angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL) is a distinct peripheral T-cell lymphoma entity exhibiting peculiar clinical features and poor prognosis. Its clinical characteristics and prognostic factors are not well established. To clarify the clinical characteristics and prognostic features of AITL, we conducted a multicenter, retrospective study. Fifty-six(More)
We investigated the complement sensitivity of erythrocytes from three patients, one with inherited complete deficiency of CD59, one with the Inab phenotype, and one with paroxysmal nocturnal haemoglobinuria (PNH). The complement lysis sensitivity units on the erythrocytes were 11.7, 4.6, and 47.6 for inherited CD59 deficiency, Inab phenotype, and PNH,(More)
There have been no studies on the distribution of causes of macrocytic anemia with respect to mean corpuscular volume (MCV) cutoff values. We retrospectively investigated the causes of macrocytic anemia (MCV ≥100 fL) among 628 patients who visited the outpatient hematology clinic in Tohoku University Hospital. To ensure data validity, we also analyzed data(More)
To clarify the clinical outcome of peripheral T-cell lymphomas (PTCLs), we conducted a retrospective review comparing the outcomes of patients with PTCL (nodal peripheral T-cell lymphoma, unspecified, n=34 ; angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma, n=12) to those with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL, n=48). All patients received CHOP-based chemotherapy(More)
To clarify some characteristics of phosphatidylinositol glycan-class A gene (PIG-A) mutations in aplastic anemia (AA) and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) patients compared with those in paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) patients, we investigated PIG-A mutations in CD59- granulocytes and CD48- monocytes from seven AA, eight MDS, and 11 PNH Japanese(More)
To elucidate the correlation between regulatory T cells (Tregs) and acute graft-versus-host disease (aGVHD) or cytomegalovirus infection following allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (allo-BMT), we evaluated either CD4⁺CD25(high) or FOXP3⁺ Treg-enriched cells in peripheral blood (PB) from 20 patients who received allo-BMT, and in biopsies of skin with(More)
Overexpression of high mobility group AT-hook 2 (Hmga2), which is negatively regulated by MIRLET7 micro RNAs through 3'-untranslated region (3'UTR), causes proliferative haematopoiesis mimicking myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) and contributes to progression of myelofibrosis in mice. Thus, we investigated HMGA2 mRNA expression in 66 patients with MPNs(More)
A patient had multiple myeloma and associated cardiac amyloidosis, which caused diastolic dysfunction and recurrent ventricular fibrillation. After implantation of a cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD), the patient underwent autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (PBSCT). The life-threatening arrhythmias, such as ventricular fibrillation,(More)
Host-derived Langerhans cells (LCs) are crucial antigen-presenting cells that cause graft-vs.-host disease after allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). However, chimaerism of LCs after allogeneic HSCT is largely unknown in humans. We here report a case that developed dermatopathic lymphadenitis accompanied by an accumulation of(More)
