OBJECTIVE Acute leukemia (AL) is one of the most common malignant diseases in children. AL immunophenotypes are known to be benefit to the predictable prognoses and specific therapy. Recently, the accuracy of AL immunophenotyping was dramatically improved with the application of the flow cytometry, the new monoclonal antibodies, the improvement of the(More)
The prognostic value of absolute lymphocyte count (ALC) has been a recent matter of debate in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). In the current study, ALCs at the time of diagnosis (ALC-0), after 7 days of initial therapy (ALC-8) and at interim of the induction therapy (ALC-22) were examined in Chinese children with B-cell precursor (BCP) ALL and(More)
Henoch-Schonlein purpura (HSP) is the most common type of connective tissue diseases which increasingly occurs in children in recent years and its pathogenesis remains unclear. In order to explore the immune parameters and underlying pathogenesis mechanism of children with HSP, the study involved 1232 patients with HSP having different clinical symptoms and(More)
Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) infections are the dominant cause of pneumonia in children. In order to determine the epidemiological characteristics and immune status of children with Respiratory Syncytial Virus, a prospective study was performed among patients with RSV infection. Comparisons between RSV pneumonia group and normal control group, RSV(More)
Flow cytometry based minimal residual disease (MRD) was evaluated for outcome prediction in childhood acute myeloid leukemia (AML). The median levels of MRD in relapsed and nonrelapsed patients were different after the first induction (0.64% vs. 0.18%, P=0.030). A cutoff level of ≥ 0.25% after the first course of induction was correlated with a high risk of(More)
This study aimed to assess the relevance of laboratory tests in Henoch-Schönlein purpura nephritis (HSPN) classification, and determine accurate classification factors. This prospective study included 694 HSPN patients who underwent ultrasound-guided percutaneous renal biopsy (PRB). Renal specimens were scored according to International Study of Kidney(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the expression of CD(117) on different types of leukemia and its significance. METHODS CD(117) expression was analysed by three-color flow cytometry with CD(45)/SSC gating strategy. RESULTS CD(117) was expressed in 68% of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and 80% of chronic myeloid leukemia in blast crisis (CML-BC) cases, but in only 2%(More)
Activation of checkpoint kinase 1 (Chk1) is essential in chemoresistance of hepatocarcinoma (HCC) to 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and other antimetabolite family of drugs. In this study, we demonstrated that PHA-767491, a dual inhibitor of two cell cycle checkpoint kinases, cell division cycle kinase 7 (Cdc7) and cyclin-dependent kinase 9 (Cdk9), has synergistic(More)
We performed a prospective observational study to evaluate the utility of measuring inflammatory cytokine levels to discriminate bacterial meningitis from similar common pediatric diseases. Inflammatory cytokine levels and other cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) physicochemical indicators were evaluated in 140 patients who were diagnosed with bacterial meningitis(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the value of CD117/CD11b phenotypic analysis to diagnosis and prognosis of acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL). Three- or four-color flow cytometry with a series of 22 monoclonal antibodies and CD45/Side Scatter (SSC) gating strategy were used to identify immunophenotypic characteristics of APL as compared to CML in(More)
