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)
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)
To clarify the response of endothelial cells to complement, we studied not only the reaction of endothelial cells against complement lysis sensitivity (CLS) test, but also the expression of complement regulatory proteins by two-color flow cytometric analysis and backscattered scanning immunoelectron microscopic analysis using monoclonal antibodies to(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)
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)
Patients with paroxysmal nocturnal haemoglobinuria (PNH) have expanded clonal cells bearing a somatic mutation in the PIGA gene. Our previous study on two PNH patients with chromosome 12 rearrangements demonstrated the involvement of HMGA2 expression in clonal expansion. The present study investigated HMGA2 expression in PNH patients without chromosomal(More)
